Can't Wait To Be Queen ($42, Luminess Cosmetics)
The Lion King eye shadow palette is certainly the star of the collection and for good reason, as it captures the overall essence of the film! The palette has all of the neutrals that represent the lands shown in The Lion King. Still, it takes note of the gorgeous animals and jungles shown in the film with its jewel tones. The palette features 12 high-pigment eye shadows in a mix of satin, matte, and shimmer finishes.

Starrr transformed into one fabulous animal-print-wearing queen using the entire Luminess Collection! He obsessed over not only the pigments of the eye shadow palette but also how lightweight it is and how FABULOUS the mirror is. He ultimately went with a neutral eye (using smokey browns topped with champagne and gold shimmers) and gave it an extra dose of glam with glitter-topped eyeliner. The end result was absolutely gorgeous.
