A World of Childhood Fantasy in Narni, Italy
There are stunning similarities between the real-life town of Narni and the fictional world of Narnia: blazing green hills, clear blue skies and picturesque stone structures.
In fact, the classic fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia, written by C.S. Lewis in 1950, is rumored to have been inspired by this small Italian town 50 miles north of Rome. According to biographer Walter Hooper, Lewis was fascinated by ancient history, and Narni—named “Narnia” in Roman times—was highlighted by the children’s author in his personal atlas.
Whether Lewis visited Narni has never been confirmed, but even today, its cobblestone streets and castle fortress look like they belong in a magical, medieval novel. And while there are no mythical, talking creatures roaming the land, Narni still feels like a place pulled straight out of our childhood imaginations.
So I bought pencil #12 and I <3 <3 <3 it. This red-orange lipstick comes out as a pretty red shade on my skintone. It’s so opaque and pretty long-wearing. Now considering going back for more!
Maybe #4 or #5 for glitter, #8 as a concealer, then #41, #45 or #47 as an eye shadow.
I am totally in love with this concept. Good job Etude! I can’t even remember the last time I got this excited over a make-up product.
