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?

If she’s copying Jessica, then Jessica copied every other successful female celebrity before her—Get over yourselves. Vanessa is one of many young, successful Hollywood hotties. You think she’s not good enough for Nick, but she’s making him happy and quite honestly, it looks like she’s inking a lot more deals than he is. I highly doubt being his girl right now is a “great career move.” Please.

And Yes, I’d wear her line of make-up if it’s hypo-allergenic. This and “not tested on animals” are pretty much my standards for cosmetics—I couldn’t care less about the personal life of the models or endorsers.

I wouldn’t ware it even if someone offered a million dollars to do so. Can’t stand her.

Everytime I see her shes blowing a kiss at someone. Its so annoying! Thats the only pose she knows.

Hey the question is Are you Trying to be Jessica Simpson with the new line or what This chick needs to find something new to do besides being a copier,,,,

I work for Kohl’s and it’s a GREAT line of cosmetics. The Line has been around for a while now. Vanessa is a beautiful woman and anyone who bashes her or anyone else is very inmature. I’m a woman in my late 40’s and feel that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. It doesnt matter if your fat, slim, young or old, all women are beautiful. No matter what the external looks like. PEOPLE GROW UP PLEASE. We are all sister’s and we should stick together.

to all of you bashing her and saying all the negatives:
it’s very clear, you are just soooo jealous! and can’t admit the fact that she’s pretty, and brainy, that she’s with nick, and that she’s getting all the big breaks nowadays; part of your bashing i’m sure, is one that’s being biased or prejudiced; IF she were white, or this typical all-american-girl-next-door type, i bet you’d not be saying all these irrational opinions about her; grow up! ang don’t be ignorant either! you all should know that everyone who has become a big star now, must have started somehow, somewhere, from being an unknown, or little-known! and that even includes jessica and nick! get over it! and have a life! definitely will try her make-up line.

I think she’s gorgeous & not trying to ‘copy’ anyone! She hosted ET & now is moving on to do what she really wants & let’s face it………we’d ALL like to do a clothing, makeup or perfume line! As to what does she do all day except follow Nick around??? y’all need to read her bio , quite frankly she HAS worked real hard from what I can see. I for one will go see her makeup line at Kohls!
