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’m a Vanessa fan. I believe she is a smart and gorgeous
girl who is a business woman as well. She is an independent woman who wants to make money on her own and not depend on ne one. As for her love life, I think as long as their both happy (Nick&Vanessa) then I’m happy for them. Nick deserves someone sweet & caring and that is Vanessa.

* If she was only for the publicity and fame, she would have LEFT Nick already and persued all the job offerings like what Jessica did. Jessica is the OPPORTUNIST not Vanessa. Jessica’s loss is Vanessa’s gain.

Yes I would check out and try Vanessa’s makeup line.

She Bloody Urkesss me. I Cant stand her. Lawddddddddddd. She an obvious wanna be and second best, atcually not even, like 9th or 10th best. I WILL NEVER WEAR ANYTHING SHE ENDOURSES. NEVER. That line is the same as Jessica’s. She should’ve never done that. She looks like a freaking wanna be. Urrrrrrrrrr! Girl yo will never be Jessica so quit. Further more you have her left-overs. You are eating what Jessica chewed up and spit out. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww! STOP COPYING HER! LAWDDDDDDDDDDDD! Disgusting u are venessa.

I just have to say there is some serious hating on this girl, and some of us say we are mature.

Theresa on

No, i wouldn’t wear her make up line or Bongo. She’s trying to hard to be Jessica Simpson.

If I use FLIRT! and look like Vanessa, then I would absolutely buy it….Readers should answer the question.

Wow! There are a lot of haters on here! I like Vanessa. I think she is gorgeous and is just trying to do something with her life. I do not think it has anything to do with Jessica Simpson. I think those that think she is trying “to be” Jessica are people that have their own insecurity issues. She is Vanessa and Jessica is Jessica. Jessica decided to end her marriage to Nick, that has nothing to do with Vanessa. Nick and Jessica are going to move on just like anyone else would. So who cares what they are doing with their lives. They have moved on, so should you!

To answer the question, I would try the makeup line. Why not?! If I didn’t like it, then I’d just go back to my regular makeup. I am sure there are plenty of other women/girls that will love it even if I don’t!

Dessert was a flop…hopefully flirt has better quality!

Jen on

This has nothing to do with Jessica. Why would she want to appear more like Jessica…So that the media can further ‘hate on’ her? Right. I think she has more of a brain than her past blonde competitor. Just a thought.
