An honest review of Valentino Beauty’s couture-inspired make-up collection

TextDominic Cadogan

Everything you need to know about the fashion house’s new launch and why it deserves to be in your make-up bag, from dreamy, creamy blush to boujie face glitter

Season after season, Valentino’s fabulous make-up looks have been just as coveted as its mouthwatering fashions. So, naturally, news of the house’s foray into the world of beauty was akin to Christmas coming early for beauty fanatics. 

Brought to life by the mastermind that is creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, the designer wanted to lean into the Couture approach that the house is known for. “Couture is about the excellence of execution but it also evaluates a very personal approach, so when it came to deciding the intention of this line, it had to match with everything I stand for and that we stand for as a brand: the celebration of self-expression,” he says. 

The now-launched 13-product collection includes the Very Valentino foundation, Eye2Cheek dual-use blush and eyeshadow, V-Lighter dual-use face base and top coat, Rosso Valentino refillable lipstick, Dreamdust lip and cheek loose glitter, and the already iconic Go-Clutch 2-in1 face powder and mini lipstick. And now, we are putting it to the test to give you the full lowdown.

Before we get into it though, let’s unpack the boxes. Delivering the level of luxury excellence that you’d expect from a fashion house like Valentino, each of the products come in glossy boxes in the brand’s signature Valentino Rosso and gold. With clear instructions on use for dual-purpose products, small touches like the mantras inside the boxes – ‘be a little cheeky’ and ‘beauty means individuality’ – show the attention to detail that more than justify the price point. 

Click through below to read the Dazed Beauty team’s individual reviews and honest thoughts for each product, and why they’re a must-have for your make-up collection.
