Perfect Match!:Christian Siriano and VS Beauty

He may not be as tall (he certainly doesn't have the bod) but he's the newest Angel on the block and set to cash in big bucks on his latest collabo with Victoria's Secret beauty. I'm talking about none other than fashion designer (and Project Runway winner) Christian Siriano! (I wonder if Heidi had anything to do with this hook up? Hmmmm.....)
I recently attended the launch event and must say that it was pretty fab! Upon arrival, we (being us beauty editors) received makeovers from various makeup artists with products from the newly revamped VS Beauty line (more on that in a bit). Then, we were given one of those signature pink VS bags and swag (always the best!).
After sipping wine and mingling with each other, we finally took our seats (me on the front row, of course!) for the fashion show. I sat beside my good friend Heather Muir (Seventeen magazine..that's her pictured above next to me with the dark hair) and Kari Molvar (Cosmopolitan magazine..she's the cute blonde next to Adriana).
And then, to my surprise, out walks VS Angel Adriana Lima (my fave!) Less than a foot away from me and breathing the same air as I...heaven! Each model (there were 8 total) showcased a different dress from Siriano's Fall 2009 collection as well as a new makeup look inspired by the trends and created with products from Siriano's new VS makeup line.
Afterwards, Siriano himself took the stage and told us all how excited he was to do this collabo with VS and even admitted that he worked a makeup counter at Bloomingdale's in Manhattan before his Project Runway days. ("Don't judge," he said. I was cracking up as I remembered my not so fun days working in the city's retail hell as well!)
Drawing inspiration from Egypt ("the warmth of the desert, the blue of the Nile and the juxtaposition of soft fabrics and strong shapes," he says), this limited edition collection is a reflection of the same hues seen in his Fall 2009 collection. (And, I must admit, looks very upscale in its gold packaging making it a nice addition to your boudoir!)
There are the Silky Eye Shadows in Sahara (a nude), Sandstorm (copper), Oasis (greenish blue), Royalty (deep chocolate) and Gilded Fierce (a black with gold sparkle), $14 each; the Kajal Eye Liner in Eclipse (a creamy kohl liner) $12; lip gloss in Embrace (a champagne hue), Sublime (warm coral) and Chic (deep berry), $14 each; a Bronzer/Highlighter Trio in Sunspell Bronze, $24; Face Brush, $32 and a signature ruffle makeup bag, $16.
The Christian Siriano for VS Makeup collection launches in August 2009 at Victoria's Secret stores nationwide and VictoriasSecret.com.
Also hitting Victoria's Secret stores in August 2009 is the newly revamped VS Makeup collection. The brand has completely redesigned the packaging for a sleeker look, upgraded the formulas for better application and added more shades so that women of all colors can be VS Angel sexpots! What do you think of the looks below?

Heather and I just couldn't resist snagging a pic w/Adriana. (She's actually very nice and no, she isn't really that tall...they were wearing super high platform shoes!)
