Sir John x Luminess’ The Lion King Makeup

Disney-themed beauty collections are on the rise and there are no signs of stopping. Just like M.A.C’s regal Aladdin makeup range, the next one on our wishlist is fit for royalty. Sir John has partnered with Luminess to bring us a fierce collection inspired by The Lion King film.

In case you aren’t familiar with Sir John (not to be confused with Sir Elton John), he’s best known as Beyoncé’s makeup artist, and with Queen Bey voicing Nala in the upcoming remake, the new collection feels like a perfect fit.

The 8-piece collection will feature an eyeshadow palette, a contour palette, a highlighter, a tinted lip balm, 2 matte lipsticks and 2 liquid lipsticks. Using an “etched enamel technique”, the elegant packaging has a rose gold sheen that’s accentuated by a 3D printed, tactile metal coat.

Let’s start with the cream of the crop: Can’t Wait To Be Queen Eyeshadow Palette. The sleek case houses 12 shades of shimmery bronze and gold, reminiscent of a glistening lion’s mane. There are also pops of blue, emerald and purple to elevate your everyday makeup look.

To carve out those cheekbones and brighten your complexion, turn to the Kingdom Sculpting Palette. It has 6 shades, featuring a neutral pink blush, red-toned browns and a deep cocoa. The Circle of Life Highlighter is for the glow-getters, and it bears the iconic imagery of Simba standing on the cliff.
