Valentino Beauty Is Here! Get a First Look at the Luxury Makeup LineJuly 01, 2021
Luxury fashion house Valentino is making its grand entrance into the cosmetics world with a much-anticipated makeup line that officially launches today. The new collection speaks to the brand’s iconic bold style. Dressed up in signature Valentino red, each of the 14 products are eye-catching, innovative and completely luxurious. From a longwear liquid foundation that has an expansive 40-shade range and 50 hues of mix-and-match refillable lipsticks to a signature compact that doubles as a fashion statement, the collection is stunningly versatile. Get a first look at some of the must-haves that our editors have already fallen in love with, below.
From dreamy reds to bold pinks and versatile neutrals, this lipstick comes in a color for every style, mood and event. One swipe of the bullet, which doubles as a lip liner thanks to the unique V-shape, reveals punchy pigments that feel weightless on your lips. Choose between creamy satin or soft matte finishes that are both long-lasting and non-drying. Once you use up your favorite shade, refill the packaging with a new bullet — or mix-and-match to try all of the colors.
Developed with inclusivity in mind, this lightweight, medium-coverage foundation comes in an extensive 40 shades to ensure a match for every skin color and tone. The semi-matte formula is long-lasting up to 24-hours yet feels comfortable, like a second skin, no matter how long you’ve been wearing it.
Makeup meets skincare with this multitasking illuminator. Formulated with hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated and glowing for 24 hours, the pearly V-Lighter can be used as a primer under foundation, a highlighter to illuminate the high points of your face, or it can be mixed into foundation for added luminosity. It’s available in two shades: Rosa for lighter complexions and cool undertones, and Ambra for medium to deep complexions and warm undertones.
There has never been a more fashionable powder. The soft matte finishing powder enclosed in the compact provides a buildable, natural finish in five shades that can be worn alone or over makeup. While we love that the product is refillable and customizable (it has a special compartment to stash a Minirosso Lipstick), this compact is taken to the next level thanks to the removable chain that turns it into a crossbody statement accessory.
