Deborah Lippmann True Blood Forsaken Lip & Nail Duet Swatches & Review
When you came in the air went out
And every shadow filled up with doubt
I don’t know who you think you are
But before the night is through
I wanna do bad things with you…
Love that song, had to download it the first time I ever heard it. In case you are confused it’s the theme song to True Blood. And this fall Deborah Lippmann is treating us to three limited edition True Blood inspired collections.
First up is the Forsaken Lip & Nail Duet.. This set includes Let It Bleed nail lacquer and Bite Me lip color. The nail lacquer is actually scented with the fragrance Forsaken, which is a deep jasmine/woodsy scent. It definitely fits in with the True Blood theme. The lipstick has a very strong notable scent as well.
Let It Bleed
Let It Bleed is a very deep blackened red creme. It applies very nicely, barely any streaks. After three thin coats it builds up to a gorgeous color with tons of shine. I was very impressed with the formula, I sometimes have a hard time getting blackened red cremes totally even on my nails, but this was excellent. You smell the Forsaken scent after it dries a bit. It’s nice, not too strong at all.
Bite Me is a deep brownish/red lipstick. Nice shine and buildable. It goes on a little on the patchy side but you can build it up to make it more even. It’s a really nice rich shade for fall. The scent is strong though. Very strong and kind of musky. It feels medium moisturizing on the lips, and has a nice shine.
