On the heels (or should we say fangs?) of their Snow White and the Huntsman-themed product line, HSN is coming back for more. Their latest collection is inspired by True Blood and launches on August 9.
Among some of the highlights are are a perfume called Forsaken, a body cream, and home fragrances. There are also plenty of Deborah Lippmann nail polishes, including Bad Blood (a sexy black cherry shade inspired by Pam), Fairy Dust (a shimmering white inspired by Sookie), and Strange Love (a vampy plum inspired by Jessica).
However, the centerpiece of the collection is a lipstick called Bite Me. Also created by Lippmann, it's her first ever foray into lips. "It has a strong sentiment behind it because we didn't want to introduce my first lip color in a subtle way," Lippmann told InStyle. "We worked hard to create an innovative lipstick formula that provides a nail lacquer-inspired fashion-forward intensity, shine, and color." The lipstick is a blackberry hue and also has aloe in it to soften and hydrate your lips. Which is good, because if you get as much action as the people on this show, your lips are going to need all the rehab they can get.
