In this post I’ll be sharing some photos, swatches and info on the Sir John x Luminess Cosmetics The Lion King Makeup Collection. As of now I haven’t tried the products other than to swatch them so this post will not be serving as a review, however because it’s limited edition I wanted to get the swatches and info out ASAP. I plan on doing a look and a formal review soon!
what is it
The Sir John x Luminess Cosmetics The Lion King Makeup Collection is an 8 piece, limited edition line that Luminess Cosmetics has created in collaboration with Sir John (who is most notably known as a makeup artist to Beyonce, Priyanka Chopra and Karlie Kloss – to name a few).
So I don’t have to be repetitive the packaging is perfection and stunning. Swatches of everything in the line are below. All powder swatches are done using my finger on dry and bare skin (no primers). All lip product swatches are done direct from the applicator.
A curated collection of high-pigment eyeshadows inspired by the Disney classic, The Lion King. Featuring twelve essential and iconic shades hand selected in collaboration with SIR JOHN X LUMINESS that bring the motion picture to life.

Kingdom Sculpting Palette ($42.00).
Inspired by scenic scenes of the African Sahara in Disney’s The Lion King by SIR JOHN X LUMINESS, this ultimate collection of sculpting powders are perfect for defining and shaping facial features. It’s versatile formula features finely milled powders that allow for buildable coverage and superior blendability.

A multi-use, face and body highlighter adds a touch of glow to any look for a lit from within finish. Inspired by the iconic sunset in Disney’s The Lion King, SIR JOHN X LUMINESS created this warm gold-tone highlighter that adds a touch of brilliance to any skin tone.
