Look like Lady Mary: A Downton Abbey bath and beauty collection is coming
If your heart is still broken thanks to the third season of Downton Abbey, we have some good news: you can now light an official Downtown Abbey candle in honour of the departed characters. To celebrate the upcoming fourth season of everyone’s favourite period drama-slash-soap opera, Marks & Spencer is releasing a collection of Downton Abbey bath and beauty products.
Guaranteed to delight both 1920s British nobility and current day commoners (that’s us!), the 10-piece collection includes soaps, lip glosses and balms and even nail polishes. No mascaras, though—as fans of the show know, none of the Downton Abbey actresses even wear mascara as historically it wasn’t a popular product at the time.
All of the items come in Edwardian-inspired packaging complete with quotes from Lady Mary, the Dowager Countess and more. Much like the show itself, the Downton Abbey bath and beauty products are being released in the UK first. (The launch is timed for the debut of season four in October.) But North American fans should keep their fingers crossed: NBC Universal holds the merchandizing rights to the show and have announced plans for official apparel, beauty products, furnishings and more.
