Project Runway may have taken an extended vacation, but one alum has been busy, busy, busy: Christian Siriano just added “make-up designer” to his resume with a new make-up line for Victoria’s Secret.
Since winning Project Runway‘s Season 4, the playfully eccentric Siriano has maintained the public’s attention with critically acclaimed runway collections at Fashion Week (picked up by Saks!) as well as countless projects and collaborations. Siriano’s stayed a fan favorite for his youthful charm (at 21, he was the youngest Project Runway winner ever!), unabashedly flamboyant personality, and unique vocabulary (how did we ever live without the term “hot trannie mess”?)
Unlike his fellow P.R. alumni, this winner has gotten down to business, with projects that include a special collection for bluefly.com, a collaboration with Payless Shoes, a fabulous cameo appearance on Ugly Betty, a maternity line for Moody Mamas, a mysterious yet highly anticipated collaboration with Starbucks, and countless gigs designing for celebrities (including Uma Thurman’s wedding gown!)
…and now, Victoria’s Secret make-up! VS may not typically be your go-to beauty stop, but Siriano’s collection should make you take a second look. Packaged in fierce gold (what else?), the products include the expected eyeshadows, bronzers, and lipglosses plus a chic eyeliner pen that lends the line a high-end look, like Nars, LORAC and other Sephora standbys. Yet unlike those brands, this limited edition make-up is budget friendly with prices ranging from $12-$24.
It’s just the latest in the burgeoning World of Christian. Keep your eyes open for that Starbucks project and more— you never know what this adorably fierce design darling has up his sleeve!
