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!

Savannah Sunset by Inglot. Inspired by The Lion King!

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!
