The Valentino Beauty Thread

Now that Valentino beauty products are popping up on the Sephora website and app, we thought it would be a good time to start a thread dedicated to the brand. Please share your swatches and thoughts on the products here!



Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Thanks for the swatches @faeriegirl ! What do you think of the palette and the brow pencil so far?

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@makeitup305  The brow trio is really nice and easy to use, it’s just too dark for me. I tried it anyway and the pen is great for drawing natural looking brow hair and the pencil was great for filling them in. If they offered a lighter shade I would try it. The palette is really neat it’s just way overpriced. The shadows are buttery and they do blend well. It’s not one I would buy on my own.

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Thanks for the info @faeriegirl. Yeah, the palette isn’t something I’d go for, I don’t think, but a good eyebrow product is always a plus. Hopefully they come out with more shades at some point!

Here is basically a study in reds 😂🤦🏻‍♀️. Like most of the line considering the designer I imagine 😊.  I’ve had these since August I think so I’ve given them a fair amount of time to try. 2 lips came broken so they went back but I swatched them anyway. Lips and eye2cheek have very faint scent almost nothing. Citrus floral. The Eye2cheek is soft, buttery and powdery but not too much. Lasting as well. Highlighter has faint floral scent and is not sticky at all, dries down well and really pretty glow. The lips have varying degrees of pigment and I have some def favs. Satins feel smooth tho the brighter reds tend to move around a bit more. I prefer the mattes as they are not dry matte at all vs a semi matte for sure. They feel super light yet last and no drag at all. Very comfy.  All can have the prettiest translucent blotted effect with light stain. None sit on the lip at all. They melt in beautifully!

I was pretty overwhelmed by the names and formulas and then to do mini, refill or regular so I got them in a few stages! 😂

I decided to get a few large and then basically refills once I saw the minis because they are the same price as refills. Think I also did a mini bec it turned out to be one of my fav shades and wanted it for a little handbag. Packaging is lightweight except for the full size lip which is medium in weight.


Hope this helps anyone interested in the line. Most all of mine are cool toned and neutral except for 217R which is more of a rust. (The round mini 100R was a freebie with order.) The shadows and glitter pots were pretty also. Shadows a bit stiffer in the quads. Glitter took a bunch to show up. I took a few pics in Bloomies and can also find those. 😊

@txcatx @makeitup305 @itsfi @blackkitty2014 @Ispend2much6 @curlychiquita @WinglessOne I’m sure I missed some folks, forgive! 




Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@Sunnysmom  I have been avoiding this thread as this poor Canadian do not have access 😞 but boy do those swatches look amazing!

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Oh I so get it @ChristalM ! That’s so unfair when that happens. I see lines we don’t have in the states and it’s so frustrating! Happy holidays to you my lippie friend! 🥰

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@Sunnysmom Thanks you! Happy holidays to you as well 🙂

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@Sunnysmom I almost bought Red Show and talked myself out of it. Now I am kicking myself these are soooo pretty! Maybe for my birthday lol.

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

That would be a terrific lippie to gift yourself @niki172 ! Go for it! 😘

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Thx you so much @Sunnysmom for all the eye candies 🍭. It’s gonna hard to pick a lipstick to try out because they’re all so pretty 😍 A red and a nude maybe ….

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

That sounds about right @blackkitty2014 ! 😘

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@Sunnysmom Thank you! Was not sure of which lipstick to get from the pictures but think I’m going to try the Rosso Valentino mini! It looks gorgeous. 

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

That is a beautiful choice @lnum ! Love to hear what you think when you try it! 💞

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@Sunnysmom I can tell you already I’ve never met a red I don’t love. 😅

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Yay @lnum ! Yup I’m almost in that club too! 💄❤️

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@Sunnysmom I've seen really good reviews of the lipsticks on YT.  I hope you love them! The colors look perfect for you.  I just purchased another Tom Ford lipstick, two in two months, so I need to try not to buy more.  I do have some saved in my loves list for later.

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

So far I really do like these @curlychiquita . I need to watch some of those , good idea. You’re so disciplined! Teach me your ways! Love those TF. 😘

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@Sunnysmom   How did you know I was looking at these? Did you see my cart? 😂

I knew you would love Nightfall Rebel. It looks like Rosso Valentino and Sensual Red are kind of wine-colored; is that accurate?

Thanks for these; it may push me to order!

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Ha @Ispend2much6 apparently! 😂 This pic looks darker for some reason. But oh my goodness I think I put the colors out of order on the list! Forgive! 😱I’ll edit them quickly. 
22 is a cool but neutral brighter true red. Sensuous 213 is a deeper red tho yes. 
So it goes 300, 22, 213, 212, 221, 223! 
I may need to redo pic in brighter lighting. 
Subtle differences in some of these rascals. 
The pinks are pretty also from what I saw at Bloomies. 💞

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@Sunnysmom  So that means I like Red Show and Lyrical Red, the bottom two on your arm?  I'm having a bad brain day and I want to make sure- thanks!

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

EDIT @Ispend2much6 !!  SO…. 223 Lyrical is the bottom burgundy in the 6 lip group not 4 and it’s cool not warm!! My feeble brain got it mixed up with 217 Ethereal in the other 4 group! 🤦🏻‍♀️ oooof I’m so sorry! I know you figured it probably it out tho. It was nagging at me in my brain earlier because I didn’t think you’d want the warmer one! 🙃 Or did you?! Too much cooking, holiday gifts, etc etc going on in this old old noggin! Forgive! This group has given me such trouble keeping them all straight and I thought I had issues with Chanel. Lol. 😂


I hear you @Ispend2much6 , me too every day I think! Yes those are the 2 bottom shades in the 4 group 😊. Lyrical is quite rusty or warmer tho. If that’s what you want then yes! 😘
