Die-hard Disney fans are well aware that a new Lion King is on its way. The children's classic has a brand new cast featuring the likes of Donald Glover, Seth Rogan, John Oliver, and (wait for it) Beyonce. Die-hard Disney fans are probably also well aware that the movie comes out on July 19th. If you're one of these people, and you're waiting on the edge of your seat, we have some good news to tide you over: there's a new Lion King makeup collection coming, and we have the details.
The collection is a collaboration between Disney, Luminess, and Sir John (who is Beyonce's longtime friend and makeup artist). The eight-piece collection includes an eyeshadow palette, a face palette, and four lipsticks (two are cream lipsticks and two are liquid lipsticks). Keep scrolling to see the full collection, and find out when and where you can shop it. Trust us, this is the Disney makeup collection you didn't know you needed.
First up, let's talk about this—the Can't Wait to Be Queen Eyeshadow Palette. It houses 12 pressed powders in both matte and shimmer finishes. The shades range from a variety of warm-toned neutrals to gold, bronze, blue, green, and plum. The names of the shades are just as good as the shades themselves. There's Mufasa, Zazu, Sire, King, Pride Rock, African Clay, Simba, Wisdom, and more.
Next up, we have the Kingdom Sculpting Palette. This palette houses six cool-toned contour shades that can be used to sculpt and define the complexion. Brush them into the hollows of your cheekbones, the sides of the forehead, and the jawline. We like the fact that there's a shade for every skin tone, from the palest to the deepest.
The first cream lipstick is a nude brown shade, which is called Lion's Mane. We're assuming it will be much like the Luminess Creme Confession Lipsticks ($24), which are creamy and moisturizing, thanks to cocoa and shea butters, marula oil, and hydrolyzed silk.
The other Be Brave cream lipstick is called Pounce, and it's an orange-red color that we think is a perfect vivid shade for summer. The cream lipsticks (both Lion's Mane and Pounce) are both being touted as smudge-proof and long-wearing.
Fans of liquid lipstick will be happy to know that there are two different shades available in the collection. The first is called Trouble, and it's a brick-brown color that feels very '90s, and as such, very on-trend.
Then there's Romantic Atmosphere, which is a dark, rosy red shade. We're guessing both shades will perform like Luminess's Obsession Liquid Lipstick ($24), which are fully opaque lipsticks that set into a matte finish. They're formulated with candelilla and sunflower essence for a silky, cushioned feel.
There's also a highlighter in the collection. It's called the Circle of Life Highlighter, and it's a shimmery, golden bronze shade that Sir John, Luminess, and Disney created to be universally flattering. The pressed powder can be applied to the high points of the face with a makeup sponge, a brush, or just your fingers, for a lit-from-within radiance.
The final product in the eight-piece collection is a tinted lip balm, which is called the Legacy Tinted Lip Balm. It has a moisturizing formula that protects lips from dryness with a glossy, sheer rosy brown tint.
Every single one of these products will be available on Luminess's website on June 15. Look out for the collection to hit Ulta.com and disney.com on June 16. If you want to see it IRL before purchasing, wait until July 1, which is when it enters brick-and-mortar Ulta stores. Don't wait too long, though. This is a limited-edition collection, which means it won't stick around forever.
