It was only a matter of time before Downton Abbey's period presence took the beauty world by storm and as if by magic British retailer Marks and Spencer has announced they'll be launching a range of products from October 2013. We can't wait to get our dose of post-Edwardian charm.

High street giant Marks & Spencer has announced it will be teaming up with the maker of Downton Abbey, NBC universal, to launch a range of beauty products based on the TV hit.

NBC Universal has signed a two-year merchandising deal with M&S - that's a whole lot of Grantham based products to grace the shelves.

Come October you'll be able to blitz your tired winter skin with a period glow (even the decadent packaging is enough to get your pores excited).

All items will cost between £6 and £16, but you can bag the entire collection for under fifty pounds. That's a fair price for flawless skin. Viva la vintage!

Set to make-over the high street the Downton Abbey range will include Lady Mary-approved lip balms, cosmetic bags, signature soaps and fragrant candles - ideal for giving your home an Edwardian ambiance.

The 10 piece range comes complete with classic Downton quotes including the Dowager Countess of Grantham's advice: "No-one wants to kiss a girl in black."

The beauty line will coincide with the much-anticipated launch of the fourth series on ITV so Downton fans will be able to enjoy a double dose of historical drama.

It will be like Christmas came early this year and we can't wait to get a Mary Crawley make-over.
