True Blood’s Pam Advocates for Cruelty-Free Cosmetics

by Diana Denza


Kristin Bauer Van Straten might be all fangs and attitude on hit show True Blood, but she has a major soft spot for animals. The on-screen vampire (that’s Pam, for those of you who’ve spent the past few years hiding under a rock) told Racked reporters that the first question she was asked about the upcoming HSN x HBO Forsaken Beauty Collection Inspired by True Blood was “Is there animal testing?” (The answer to that very good question, by the way, is a hearty no.)

The line, which will debut on HSN on August 9th, will include sultry nail polish shades from Deborah Lippmann inspired by the show’s leading ladies. But what I’m dying to sink my lips into is a  blackberry gloss aptly named ‘Bite Me.’ A fragrance, body cream, and scents for the home will also be sold, sans any animal suffering.  

It looks like I’ve found the perfect fall makeup picks to stock up on! Now, if only sexy vampires came along with this stash…
