BLANDINA - Rouge
- Unit Price
This beautiful shade is BLANDINA, a very wearable nude shade with pink tones. If you enjoyed the shade "Valkyrie" from the 2015 Viking Ephemera box, you may be fond of Blandina.
Saint Blandina (French: Blandine, died 177 AD) was a Christian martyr during the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius. Blandina belonged to the band of martyrs of Lyon who, after some of their number had endured frightful tortures, suffered martyrdom in 177 in the reign of Marcus Aurelius. Almost all we know of Blandina comes from a letter sent from the Church of Lyon to the Churches of Asia Minor. Eusebius gives significant space of her life and death in his book as he quotes from the aforementioned epistle to Asia Minor.
