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?

Vanessa’s new line looks much the same as Jessica’s Dessert line that she launched years ago. This makes Vanessa look like she’s trying a little too hard to be like Jessica.

I liked vanessa before she started dating Nick. Thought she was very pretty and talented. Then I saw how deserate she was on the set of Nick’s first video after the split w/ jessica; the one where she played jessica. She was literally drooling and he was obviously still heartbroken and wanted nothing to do w/ her. My opinion of her has definately changed, ive lost respect for her so Im not going out of my way to support her career.

It’s apparent the old ‘beauty’ queen(Vanessa) is trying a tad too hard to prove herself. It’s pretty pathetic. Bongo? Puh-lease. Not even she can motivate me to wear that brand. ugh. And, in accordance with the other comments, yes she does look like a monkey. Vanessa is simply no comparison to Jessica. She’s cute, though. But I wouldn’t label her as someone I’d want to look like.

Are you all stupid or something, she is not trying to be Jessica Simpson nor is she trying too hard. I’m a big fan of JS and Vanessa. She’s just trying to be a normal business woman like every damn celebrity.
Ashlee Simpson is a spokes person for Skechers
Hilary Duff for what? candies? and has her own fragrance
Scarlett Johansen for reebok
Victoria Beckham is a fashion designer.

Makeup business, Perfume, or being a Spokes model for anything = BUSINESS and Profit. Ya’ll are just “HATERS!” Move on from the whole NICK, JESSICA, VANESSA triangle. I’m sure they did.

Maybe…every girl Nick dates seems to suddenly become the “IT” girl…because he is supportive of the women he dates and gives them the confidence to do the things that will help them succeeded. In this industry that involves face time and yes, fame. There is what the tabs tell you and then there is the real story. What this entire article asked however was…”Would you buy her line” not…”do you approve of Nick’s choice”

Didn’t Jessica do that same pose for her product line? Weird.

Just so that everyone is clear, Flirt is already an established cosmetics line that is available at Kohl’s for a reasonable price. The only thing that she is really doing is collaborating with the company to come up with a limited edition (most probably) collection that has her name on it. This is great publicity for Flirt cosmetics as well as getting her name out there too.

Sure, I’d buy it if it was reasonable and for sensitive skin then why not. I’ve been reading these blogs for so long now and I can’t believe the amount of hatered for this girl. Enough about the whole Jessica and Nick thing. It was Jessica that left him. She’s over him and so should all of you be over this whole subject. I’m sure she is happy with her new love and I’m sure Nick is happy with Vanessa. All you haters need to lighten up a bit and not take these stars lives too personal. You all remind me of stockers.

I might but I’m more into the make-up by Bobby Brown and Chanel etc. etc. I only buy my make-up at Neiman Marcus, Saks 5th avenue, and all those types of department stores.
