Vanessa Minnillo's New Gig: Makeup Designer!

03/09/2007 at 12:00 PM ET

Vanessa Minnillo has been working very hard lately. Besides hosting TRL, being an ET correspondent, the new face of BONGO JEANS and flying around the world with her pop star boyfriend, the MTV beauty is now designing a makeup line for Flirt! cosmetics that will debut in August 2007 at all Kohl’s Department Stores. Of her new gig Vanessa says, “To me, makeup is all about trying out different looks and colors. Flirt! is the ideal platform to do that, as it allows me to have fun with makeup and experiment with color.” And what colors are her favorites? Expect Vanessa’s Flirt! line to deliver lots of reds and pinks for next fall. Would you wear makeup by Vanessa?

I can’t believe all the immature postings on here. They should ban morons like you.

I wouldn’t really wear Vanessa’s makeup line because she seems to go for a more dramatic look with makeup. I like makeup to be subtle.

she is so pretty, she has that olive color. i have that same skin tone.

Bongo genes? Is that company still around?

Ok guys…she already has kinda gotten her name out there ..i mean we all know who she is..but i agree i dont like her i think she’s trying wayy to hard. I actually think its really pathetic she’s trying to start a makeup line.

I definitely would NOT use that product. What’s with all these people putting out make up lines anyway? What’s wrong with the classics? She should get an actual job instead of being a pop stars girlfriend.

Plus, she has horrible fashion sense, why would somebody buy something she’s selling?

yeah i think i would wear it it looks like my kind of makeup

I am indifferent about who Vanessa is, or Jessica, or Nick. What they do in their lives does not concern me. Hollywood is not an easy place to thirve in, and its okay to try new things. I think Vanessa has a great job, and she is by far not the only person to open a makeup line..so she is not copying Jessica, this seems to be the new thing to do for celebrity women. If I were a celebrity I would be thrilled to have that opportunity offered to me. And as far as who is better for Nick, why dont we let him decide.

P.S. Both women are beautiful in their own way, if you think either of them are ugly.. I am afraid to think what someone who is really ugly looks like to you!

noway on

flirt! makeup is really cheap- theres no way i would wear it.

ARE WE TALKING ABOUT MAKEUP HERE OR COMPARING VANNESSA TO JESSICA? WE ONLY KNOW THEM FOR THEIR STATUS BUT NOT PERSONALLY SO WHY ALL THE HATING? IT WAS JESSICA WHO ENDED HER MARRIAGE TO NICK ANYWAY. VANESSA IS THE ONE NICK CHOSE AND JESSICA IS WITH JOHN MAYER SO LET’S MOVE ON TO MORE IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE. PERSONALLY, I DON’T CARE. BUT YES, I WILL DEFINITELY TRY HER MAKEUP LINE SINCE I HAVE TANNED SKIN LIKE HERS AND A PACIFIC ISLANDER. I TRIED SOME DESSERT PRODUCTS AND DIDN’T LIKE IT. VANESSA LOOKS GORGEOUS!

She is so cute and im glad that Nick has finally fallen in love with someone who can work and provide for themselves!
YOU GO GIRL-FLIRT! AWAY!!!!!!! :)
