A England - Order of the Garter
Evening everyone! How are you doing? It's a lazy Sunday here. I baked something though. I think I'm addicted to cinnamon. That's also why I'm posting this later than planned. I also watched the news, Whitney Houston passing away was quite a shock. I swear, just last week I was dancing to I wanna dance with somebody playing in my head. Whether you like her style of music or not, she was one of the best voices out there. Oh, my favourite song (and probably the one of the three or four I really like by her) is I learned from the best. I remember being in my teens when I heard it first and liking the lyrics, not being all 'I'm gonna die because you left me', hehe. Plus her voice is incredible, of course.
I put A England Order of the Garter on yesterday, to match my teal make up. A friend of mine did photos of it, combining with the teal cocktail I was drinking, hehe. Order of the Garter isn't a teal, though, it's a true bright blue. And you know what? You know what??!? It's a glass flecked bright blue! GLASS FLECKS! YES! Naturally the photos from my lightbox make it look to bright, so I tried to do some decent photos today in a very grey light of Ljubljana and failed miserably. Photos are the way they are, I might redo them in the Summer.
I don't need to talk much about this one, do I? The A England The Legend collection is everywhere and everyone seems to want them. Myself included, thank you very much! Order of the Garter is amazing. Vibrant blue that I adore and to top that, a glass fleck, being my favourite finish, or one of them at least. Awesome. It took me three coats for full opacity, I'm guessing two will do for a lot of people, I'm just annoying like that. :) But glassflecks are usually on the sheer side, so it wasn't much of a surprise for me.
What I was curious about was the formula, because I haven't ever heard anything bad about A England's formula and it's my first. The formula is superb. Seriously. It's incredibly easy to work with. All in all an amazing polish. Even has a little tiny hue of purple, but my camera naturally didn't catch that. Thank you so much for this gem, Stefanie!
So, now I ask you, what's you experience with A England and what's on your WL from The Legend? You know me. St. George, Dragon. Seriously, now, it's pass the 'i want' and already in the 'i need' sector. ;)
Oh, I prepared a comparison with Order of the Garter for ya too!
Thank you for reading!
