Bite Me! HBO’s True Blood Launches A New Beauty Line
Vamping up your beauty regime has never been this easy.
HBO‘s True Blood and HSN have teamed up to create a line of fragrances, nail polishes, shimmer powders, body cremes, and even home fragrances inspired by the fantastical blood-sucking vampire series.
Nail polish maven Deborah Lippmann, the French mastermind that has lacquered the fingertips of some of Hollywood’s biggest starlets—including Rachel McAdams, Kate Hudson and Lady Gaga—is the designer behind the sultry set.
“This lipstick beckons a vampire’s bite,” said Lippmann of the blood red lipstick, appropriately named Bite Me. “It has a strong sentiment behind it because we didn’t want to introduce my first lip color in a subtle way. We worked hard to create an innovative lipstick formula that provides a nail lacquer-inspired fashion-forward intensity, shine, and color.”
Other standouts include the pale nail polishes inspired by Anna Paquin‘s character Sookie. “Human Nature is a mortal putty taupe and Fairy Dust is an ethereal shimmer,” said Lippmann of the nail shades ($25 for a set of three). “The character Sookie is half fairy, half human, and this set represents both her human side and her ethereal side with magical powers.”
But, our favorite piece of the entire collection has to be the perfume hell bent on getting any man under your spell. “Forsaken is a very sexy fragrance that any woman can wear anytime when she wants to feel ultra-feminine, yet sultry,” said Betsy Olum, General Manager of Beauty and Merchandising Strategy for HSN. “Just like Sookie, every woman has a dark, sensual side.”
Check out the full collection below. It’ll be available through HSN beginning August 9th. Have you fallen under the trance of the True Blood beauty line?
