Get Ready to ‘Glamour’ Your Fellow Fangbangers With Tarte for True Blood


Any fangbanger worth her weight in bottled synthetic blood knows all too well that True Blood is set to return for its fourth season very soon, but unless she's telepathic, she may not know much about this killer limited-edition cosmetics collaboration.

Tarte Cosmetics wants you to be as pretty as a southern belle from Bon Temps with their newest capsule collection: Tarte for True Blood. Created in conjunction with Brigitte Myre-Ellis, head of True Blood's makeup department, every vampy vixen should prepare to glamour and turn everyone that dares cross her path.

“As loyal fans of the hit series, we're absolutely thrilled to be working with HBO and the True Blood team,” said Maureen Kelly, Founder and CEO of Tarte. “This collection not only reflects the sexy vibe of the show, but it also remains true to the Tarte brand with natural formulas, healthy ingredients, and eco-chic packaging.”

HBO is equally thrilled with the partnership. “Tarte was the perfect company to partner with for this exciting venture,” says James Costos, VP of Licensing and Retailing. “They have developed an exquisite collection that is truly representative of the dark, provocative world of True Blood.”

The three-piece set features the Tarte™ for True Blood™ Natural Cheek Stain in Shimmering Red ($30), LipSurgence™ Natural Lip Tint in Shimmering Red ($24), and the Collector's Palette ($52), which features 17 different eyeshadows, a mascara, a gel eyeliner, eye primer, and detailed instructions on creating four official looks created by Myre-Ellis: Vampy Vixen, Luminous Fairy, Not Your Average Waitress, and Vamp Glam.

In keeping with Tarte's well-known stance on natural beauty, the entire collection is formulated without parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, sodium lauryl sulfate, and synthetic fragrances.
