Last year at San Diego Comic Con, I had the pleasure to meet the Tarte team who were giving a select few make-overs from their True Blood make-up collection at The Wired Cafe. So hearing news that HSN was teaming up with various brands to unveil an entire beauty line made me quite giddy!
The Forsaken Collection will include an Eau de Parfum, a body cream and shimmering body veil powder created by Givaudan. So will the line’s eponymous scent smell like Eau de Eric Northman? Here are the details according to the press release.
The fragrance is evocative of the dark and seductive world of True Blood, capturing the soul of the show and combining it with trendsetting, iconic products. Prominent fragrance house Givaudan developed Forsaken with an addictive blend of light and dark notes. Pulpy fruits paired with crisp pear notes are followed by mid notes of night blooming jasmine, also fittingly known as Queen of the Night. The scent closes with the dark muskiness of amber and patchouli. Ultra feminine, yet sultry, the fragrance will cast a spell on everyone.
Nail Lacquer giant Deborah Lippmann will be incorporating the Forsaken fragrance into a polish aptly named, “Let It Bleed” alongside a matching lipstick (her first foray into a lip product!) named, “Bite Me.” But wait, there is more! The brand also created two additional sets for the collection: “Sookie Sookie” featuring full-size “Human Nature,” “Fairydust” and “Bad Things;” and a trio of minis including “Strange Love,” “New Flesh” and “Bad Blood.”
And for those nights when you want to play “Sookie takes Bill” or “Sookie hearts Bill,” or even “Sookie gets wolfy with Alicide,” your home can also get the True Blood treatment! Luxury candles and diffusers with the Forsaken scent developed by Givaudan will also be part of the collection.
The Forsaken collection will be spotlighted on HSN with four, one hour segments running throughout the day on August 9, starting at 12:01 a.m. How long do you think it will be on the screen before its sold out? Not very long so I suggest you set-up a calendar reminder immediately!
True Blood stars Alexander Skarsgard, Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Joe Manganiello, Nelsan Ellis, Kristin Bauer van Straten, and Deborah Ann Woll.
