Christian Siriano's Beauty Debut With Victoria's Secret

One of my absolute favorite reality shows on TV is Project Runway, and I couldn't be more excited that it's about to start back up with a new season on August 20th on Lifetime (they switched from Bravo, still not sure what went down and why it moved?). But another truly exciting fact about Project Runway is that one of it's most popular and probably most successful winners of the show, Christian Siriano, is working along with Victoria's Secret to design a limited edition makeup collection debuting now.

I love most of what VS does with their makeup line. I think they truly have a pulse on making women feel sexy and sophisticated...I mean they design some of the hottest lingere, hello?! So it just makes sense that they signed on this talented pint sized and spunky designer to do a few pieces of makeup inspired by his fall 2009 collection.

Christian's inspiration for his beauty debut :: The rich and warm colors of browns, chocolates, golds, teals, and shades of blue that showed up throughout his fall pieces. Check out the photo of him with two of his models at the top from that exact collection. Aren't the colors so rich and luxurious? They make you want to dress your face up for fall. I'm so over this hot Georgia summer!

The casings for all his makeup are dressed up in gilded gold so they're like a little piece of couture in your hand!! And you get that couture for only $12-$18. What a deal. I love it that you can get a piece of Siriano's talent for a small price tag. I'm especially excited to try out the Christian Siriano Kajal eyeliner ($12, shown above) to give me egyptian-like eyes for fall!!

Not to be cheesy and steal his popular tag line from the show, but this line looks FIERCE!!

And by the way, does anyone know exactly what did go down with Heidi and the switch from Bravo to Lifetime with Project Runway - spill the beans if you do!!

Hi! I actually went to VS to check out his makeup and the shadow colors are beautiful...smooth and intense. I did buy two lip gloss for $12 each...colors are nice and they look good once on. Good luck to Christian Siriano...always stay "Fierce"!!

Right on Mary- good to know the shadow formulas are "intense", that's how I like my eyeshadows or they're not worth wearing!
