Catherine Morland is determined to read the Mysteries of Udolpho and find out what’s behind the black veil, even if it frightens her to death!
Our Black Veil lip balm is deliciously inspired by Udolpho and Northanger Abbey alike. It’s black cherry flavor of course, and exclusive to our Autumn in Austen collection so it’s only available for a limited time.
The balm itself is charcoal black and is not dark enough to color your lips. It glides on over lipstick and bare lips with ease.
“Oh! The dreadful black veil! My dear Isabella, I am sure there must be Laurentina’s skeleton behind it.” ~Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen.
(The quote is referring to Catherine Morland reading The Mysteries of Udolpho, a popular gothic novel of the day, written by Ann Radcliffe. I read Udolpho at age sixteen and barely survived the horrors! ?)
