A England Princess Tears

Princess Tears was one of my first A Englands. It is a very pretty silvery lilac shade with a relatively subtle holo shimmer.
I am going to a wedding tomorrow and I wanted something that was pretty, and delicate and I thought this one would go well with my outfit (mostly black). It also means I can go for my favourite Bare Minerals Eyeshadow herbal tea which is a subtle green/lilac duochrome (if such a thing exists in eyeshadow).
I am not actually a big fan of holo's - a lot of them are too bright and colourful for me, I prefer the darker shades. The A Englands though are beautifully subtle so I bought this, Princess Sabra and Ascalon. If there isn't enough light they just look like very pretty nudes. If we are lucky enough for the sun to come out then of course they are transformed into things of stunning beauty!
They paint on beautifully but are a real challenge to capture on camera! so here are a few pics with the bottle, taken outside in the rain, in the bathroom (with flash) and on the landing under quite a large window. Then there are a few "woollie" shots taken outside in rain (with flash on some) and the last one is a sneaky one that I took last time I wore it but it does capture the holo quite well.
