When you attend a theater production, especially that of the caliber to land on Broadway, what would you say the top 5 things you pay most attention to while watching? For me it’s the range of talented actors to grace the stage, captivating music and choreography, the carefully planned out and detailed set design, the stunning costumes and of course the phenomenal Makeup! So, it only made sense (actually it’s pretty dang genius!) that INGLOT cosmetics announced a gorgeous collaboration with Disney’s Tony award winning musical The Lion King this summer.
Last week, bloggers and other media outlets were invited to preview the exclusive INGLOT collection, Savannah Sunset at The INGLOT Studio in Chelsea Market which consists of an array of shimmery, rich and vibrant brown, orange, and golden-bronzed hues that will instantly remind you of an African Savannah setting sun captured in one beautiful palette.
The collection consists of:
- INGLOT Freedom System Eye shadow Paleette #606, 108r and #329
- Face Blush #40
- Freeom System Lipstick Palette #20 and #21
- Nail Enamel #042
- Secret Volume Masacaa and Inglot Felt Tip Eyeliner Pen
While there, guest noshed on appetizers and enjoyed delicious drinks and were able to indulge in mini makeovers with the talented INGLOT consultants who were so excited to show us their entire line of products. I’m talking walls and tables covered in polishes, eye-shadows, mascaras and lipcolors in every shade you could possibly imagine. Yes, a makeup mavens heaven on earth!
The highlight of the evening was meeting Mr. INGLOT himself (who made the plan 30 years ago to make high quality products at affordable prices) & the incredibly talented & friendly performers from the show: Chondra Profit who plays Sarabi, Bonita J. Hamilton who plays Shenzi and Ray Mercer who’s part of the ensemble as a giraffe.
In it’s 17th year The Lion King is the highest-grossing Broadway show in New York history and has played 19 countries on every continent except Antarctica. Audience members who bring their ticket to INGLOT Times Square and like INGLOT Fan page on Facebook will receive a 20% discount on their purchase or receive a free makeover from INGLOT.
