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

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! 😘 

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Thanks for the tag, @Sunnysmom ! Your swatches are very helpful. Nightfall Rebel looks much more red violet in your photo than it does in the brand's product photos, so now I'm drawn to it. I wish refills were currently available in each shade Sephora carries: I'd have no problem buying just a refill without the full case to save some money. I assume the refills come with simple caps...? 

 

If I'm going to buy a shade with the refillable case, it'll probably be 206R Red My Lips since it's a shade of red I don't have too much of, unlike every other shade of red. 😄 (I'm still trying to declutter my reds.) I need to see it in person though, so I'll visit Nordstrom. Might end up using Nordy Notes instead of the Sephora 20% discount to get it. I considered Stellar Note but upon close photo inspection, it looks sheerer than I hoped for. I'd have to always wear it over a base coat of something. 

 

Your Eye2Cheek shades look very nice! 

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

I know we had discussed these when they came out so wanted to just show you even tho I know you’ve been good in going through your reds @WinglessOne ! Inspiration. I. Must. Do. 🙃 

Yup just the basic caps on refills. Red and at least kind of decent vs some others. I did not want to buy any more of the regular case either. Nope.  Agree on the refill shades!  I ended up getting some from diff spots to get as well. Grr. Lucky you to have it at your Nordies. I guess mine is getting them soon I hope but Bloomies has such a huge presence for them I’m kind of surprised. Lol. 

Will be curious to hear your thoughts. Hope my swatches prove true for you too. Reds can be so strange to take an accurate pic I think! I was surprised on how some looked in real life vs what I had thought! 206 looks so good. 

Here’s the cap. Should have included it.

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Thanks for the cap photo, @Sunnysmom ! I like that it's red, too. 🙂 I keep forgetting to check my local Bloomies for things... I'm too used to stopping by Nordstrom. 

 

And haha, I haven't been all that good at sifting through my reds. I've been trying to declutter them since 2018. I'd say it's a long painful process but I don't wanna discourage you from paring down your own reds if you really wanna do it, so... um... yeah, it's just that I keep getting distracted, that must be the reason I still haven't narrowed down my reds! 🤣 And of course it's not like I've continued buying more reds while trying to declutter, noooo, not me, that'd be terribly irresponsible... 🤪

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Oh how I can totally relate to all you say @WinglessOne ! I think our effort is worth something tho and it’s all baby steps ! The trick is just to not reward ourselves tooo much with adding new! 😳😂🤦🏻‍♀️ 
I found a few at NM also besides Bloomies by the way. 

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

A study in reds, indeed @Sunnysmom! ♥️ And a beautiful one at that. 😍 That actually sounds like it would / could be a great title or subject for a class, or masterclass. Credit to you Sunnysmom! Those swatches make a couple of those lippies look even more tempting. Thank you for the tag and swatches.

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Aww thank you @itsfi ! I kept trying to just order a few and they looked so similar and tempting I had to do it. Lol. That is a good idea for a title! 😂 I know you’re more inclined to the lighter shades and I bet they are just as gorgeous.🥰

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

thanks for the tag and the info @Sunnysmom that 217R is stunning. Glad you’re enjoying all the stuff you picked up!

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

It was fun @makeitup305 . I can see a lot of you guys liking 217! I was surprised I liked this line this much. I figured eh another line coming from a designer etc but the products are actually well thought out I think. And perform well too! 

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@Sunnysmom I thought so, too. I wasn’t much drawn to Byredo or Hermes but this seems a little more trendy maybe? 

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

I dunno @makeitup305 maybe , tho Valentino is such an old established fashion house you know? Byredo shades seem trendier to me and Hermes is just it’s own wacky thing 😆- a little of this and that , old school with a twist?! 

Valentino is known for bright elegant pieces (red) but it seems like they have def looked to energize and target a younger audience too so you’re probably right! 🥰

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@Sunnysmom i think Byredo and Hermes went for a more artistic / minimalist vibe and Gucci more retro / classic, but Valentino seems more fun and approachable despite the price tag.

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

That sounds perfect @makeitup305 ! 🥰

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Great info, @Sunnysmom !  I love 217R!  🥰

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Are you getting anything @Titian06 ?! 💞

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

@Sunnysmom - Lipsticks 209A and 219A are on my Loves list.  I'm also looking at the foundation, but there are a lot of comments about the fragrance and I'm scent sensitive.  

Re: The Valentino Beauty Thread

Ooh fun @Titian06 ! I wondered about the foundation as well. I didn’t test it in store yet. I can relate to that sensitivity on certain products for sure, no fun.
