The famed beauty whisperer has teamed with Luminess Cosmetics to give us a limited-edition collection inspired by the film’s storyline and his own journeys throughout the continent of Africa.


The unique collection features highly pigmented, handpicked colors curated from the African landscape to create day and night looks.

The colors and product names also conjure up scenes from the film, including “Can’t Wait To Be Queen” eyeshadow palette ($42) which mimics the rich neutrals of clays found on the continent as well as a matte lippie dubbed “Lion’s Mane” ($24) matching the sunset orange/red color in the movie’s poster artwork.

The full line-up includes:

  • Kingdom Sculpting Palette $42
  • Can’t Wait to be Queen Eyeshadow Palette $42
  • Be Brave Matte Lipstick in Lion’s Mane and
  • Be Prepared Liquid Lipstick in ($24)
  • Legacy Tinted Lip Balm $24
  • Circle of Life Highlighter $40

Even the packaging channels Sir John’s flair for the dramatic, with hand-designed layered packaging inspired by the iconic scenes and characters from the film.

The new beauty offering will be available beginning June 15 onLuminessCosmetics.com/disney. It will roll out June 16 on ShopDisney.com and ULTA.com. Not into ordering online? Hit Ulta stores beginning July 1.
