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?

Some of these comments are ridiculous. Why do you people have such a big problem with this woman? She has done nothing wrong. It mostly seems as if those that are “bashing” her are Jessica fans. But, to be honest with all of you, the issue here is not about Nick or Jessica. This woman had established herself very well before Jessica decided she didn’t want her husband. So why is she being ridiculed? Now let’s give credit where it is due–Jessica is wonderful and so is Vanessa. Who are we to judge. One thing for sure, you can’t take away the fact that Vanessa is beautiful! Most people have to work so hard just to have flawless complexion that she has. A NATURAL BEAUTY is what she is and the makeup is just an enhancer.

PR on

I think Vanessa is a pretty girl but she tries way to hard to be like Jessica. Or maybe it is that any woman Nick touches just seems to become the “IT” woman afterwards. It also seems now with all these endorsements she is never pictured or seen with Nick anymore.

Jessica has a butt chin! She’s a ditz and she’s dating an ugly guy that can sing (big deal)..she had a good looking, sweet, committed husband..why don’t you lil Jessica lovers get over yourselves? Vanessa is lovely in her own way and has made herself without the help of Nick! So what if she’s conceited, she’s beautiful, from head to toe the girl rocks!

who cares on

As I don’t know either vanessa or jessica personnally, I am not going to say that one is “better” for nick than the other. I don’t know Nick either, he may be a total jerk for all I know.
however, I would not buy her makeup, becaause she looks like she is made of plastic, and I want to look NATURAL.
And if I sound immature, it’s because I’m 14. Maybe some of the others are, too. Cut some slack.

I think she is ugly. She tries too hard to look good but the truth is ” you can dress up the monkey in silk but underneath that silk she will remain a monkey.”

How else do people move up in hollywood???
You have to know people to get anywhere….and she is just trying to get somewhere. I’m sure every Celeb has moved up in the world just by knowing people.

Isn’t that how you become a celebrity?

You don’t sound immature to me, “who cares.” At least you don’t act like you know Nick, Jessica, and Vanessa personally (apologies to Leigh who actually DOES know one of them) and can pass judgement on their personal lives. This post is about makeup and V’s endorsement . . .

I think that it is sad when the question asked was whether or not the reader would wear her makeup and they (readers) take the time to launch personal attacks against her. No, I would not buy her cosmetics, but not because I think she is a bad person, but because I just don’t like the colors.
