I recently attended the launch of the Lion King-inspired collection by Inglot Cosmetics. Held at the Inglot Studio in Chelsea Market, I was able to meet a few of the cast members from the highest-grossing Broadway show in New York history!

I met one of the performers from The Lion King! This is Bonita, who plays the Hyena!! Check out that red lip!

If you have the opportunity, you should definitely go see the show, it is absolutely worth it! I see why it is one of the most popular musicals in the world.

From PR:

Inglot Cosmetics announces a stunning collaboration with Disney’s The Lion King, one of Broadway’s most beloved Tony-Award winning musicals. Inglot and The Lion King will come together through their shared passion for richness and vibrancy of color reminiscent of African Savannah sunsets and starry nighttime skies.

The Savannah Sunset collection consists of one single matte eye shadow, one single shimmer eye shadow, one eye shadow trio, one blush, one lipstick palette, one nail lacquer, a felt tip liner and a mascara. It is currently available at Inglot boutiques around the world as well as online at inglotusa.com. As a special bonus, audience members who bring their ticket to Inglot Times Square and like the Inglot Fan page on Facebook will received a 20% discount on their purchase or a free makeover!

So here are some pictures, swatches of the collection, as well as quick look I did with most of the products that I received. Quickly, this is a beautiful collection, very warm and suitable for all skintones. I also think that this palette would work all year round, it’s both very summery and quite appropriate for the autumn. The colours are pigmented and easy to blend. A little ‘dusty’, but not too bad. The eyeliner is also pretty good and it quite easy to make a quick cat eye and it dries down to a semi-glossy finish. The only product that I did not like was the Secret Volume Mascara. It’s one of those plastic-bristle brushes and while it was good at separating the lashes, it did nothing to volumize.

Anyway, check out the collection below!

#WCW: A Janelle Monae-inspired hair AND makeup LOTD!

I love when artists show us their raw talent and they are not hidden behind autotune or fancy costuming. I love it when there is some element of  the artist’s personality, that they are being themselves and that they are not a total creation of a label.

This is why I love Janelle Monae, from her signature pompadour, her black and white tuxedos and her earthy jazz/pop/funk vocals, yeah…you could say I have a girl crush!

I wanted to recreate her signature look, with a little twist!  Allyuh know that I am no hair expert, but I am stepping out of my malaise!

In honour of doing a look based on a musical artist, I am also going to use a few products created by Ardency Inn, a new brand, heavily influenced by music.  Check out my writeup on their launch here.

Here’s what I created!

NYFW post: At 5:31 Jerome with Inglot Cosmetics

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

New York Fashion Week F/W 2014 is in full swing!  Lots of people hustling to and fro all over the city going to fashion shows and what not!

So, on Day 2, I had the opportunity to go backstage at the 5:31 Jérôme fashion show and the makeup was done by Inglot Cosmetics.  The show was hosted at Inglot’s massive showroom at Chelsea Market in the Meatpacking District.  Allyuh remember Jérôme?? He was the stylist and designer for Kimora Lee Simmons and Baby Phat.  I’m glad to see that he has continued to succeed!

The makeup and hair were beautiful!  The hair was big and teased, very much inspired by the 60s and bombshell Brigitte Bardot.  The makeup was very modern doll, and delicate.  Dewy, flawless skin, flushed cheeks with a bold golden brow.

Flawless! Makeup by Inglot

For the skin, they mixed Inglot’s Cream Concealer with Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream to create light coverage.  It gave a serious glow and made the skin look so fresh!   Pink cheeks were created using the Cream Blush in #80, which looks really light in the container but on the skin it gave a medium pink colour that was not ashy at all.  The brows were covered in a deep metallic gold Gel Eyeliner and set with the matching powder eye shadow.  The shape was lengthened and exaggerated.  Bronzer was used to set the makeup on the skin and finally on the lips, a deep red Cream Lipstick was applied lightly to the centre of the lips.

Check out some of the scenes! And props to the diverse runway!

LOTD: Autumn/Fall inspired! Lots of bronzey/orangey goodness!

So I attended the launch of the NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection at the NARS boutique on Bleecker Street, and I was instantly drawn to the intense, saturated colours, especially for a holiday collection!  This limited edition collection features a new/special texture that appears in this collection only called Cinematic.  Actually it’s just they eye shadows and lipsticks, which allows them to be buttery smooth and highly pigmented at the same time.  NARS has amazing quality products to begin with but this just kicked the level up a few more notches.

Anyway, I don’t have a lot (or any as a matter of fact) copper-toned eye shadows, so I picked up this gorgeous colour Cambodia.

Cambodia Cinematic Eye Shadow by NARS

Swatch, Cambodia

Très riche!! A beautiful coppery, reddish brown colour!  Actually this texture reminds me of the previously released MAC Starflash texture.  Very finely milled, but pigmented and smooth.

So for this look, I decided to also combine my favourite eye shadow from the summer as well incorporating a little colour theory.

Here’s the look, that I previously posted on Instagram! Follow me here —-> NoireTropicalB

My 2nd favourite time of year is back (the first of course is summer)!  This weekend is TMS NYC and it’s my one must attend event for the year.  I just love taking all those seminars, all those beauty products and meeting all my blogging buddies! : )

And what’s great is that this is the biggest TMS and they have released an app for iPhone/iPad/Android, which is pretty damn great.  It can get pretty chaotic, especially now they have expanded.  I’ve already downloaded it and have my seminars all lined up.

So check out the info on the event and the app!!!

I’m heading there on Sunday.  Who’s going??? Hail mih out!

Laters!
