True Blood- A look at Pam's Cosmetics


I Don't know about anyone else but I love the Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris; the original author of the hit show True Blood. For those of you who don't know who is in the above picture, that's Pam, a snarky vampire with a love of twinsets in pastels and designer fashion. This still is from the third season and I just loved how in character this shot was with her personality. And for anyone wondering, the lipstick pencil she's using is NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil most likely in Damned, a deep magenta berry colour. (However, the NARS facebook page says that it's Cruella, which to me is a different colour- but really they are both nice :D). I saw this product in store at Sephora quite a while ago and the lemming has yet to pass on, a lovely creamy texture with excellent staying power, it's $24 USD. For those of you who aren't as vampy in your make-up there are many other shades available. Anyone else like these? Or are you interested in a full makeup look from one of the True Blood series? Leave a comment and let me know!

  1. Do you know what that lipstick is in the opening intro for all the true blood shows?

  2. Hi Shamus! After asking around the closest lipstick I can find to match the opening from True Blood (that is also non-animal tested) is Mac's Port Red, with a clear gloss on top. I hope this helps!

  4. *EDIT* For a gloss I was told MAC's Amorous is a really good one with Port Red for the look
    For other options try:
    Lancome Rouge Velour** (Animal tested brand)
    NARS Velvet Matte Lip pencil in Cruella with the gloss mentioned above

  5. Hi Hun! I was lucky enough to get an answer back from Kristin Bauer that plays 'Pam' when I asked her about some of her beauty secrets on Facebook (TOTALLY didn't expect a response!) I asked her about the lipcolor..which she later said was 'Nars Lip Pencil in Peach' (which I'm thinking Maybe She wears off set ?) Just looked it up on Sephora & It's in lipliner pencil form as 'Fantasia'. I also heard about the lip pencil in the Picture being 'Cruella'...asked what she used on her hair and here's what she said "Oh, why thank you! Um, I use a real variety...I like Wen products, but I alternate with all the natural stuff from the health food store. ANd btw, tuthfullly, it can look crazy, it really needs a blow dry or something to rein it in."

  6. Wow, that great thank-you CindyLouLouBear! I wouldn't be surprised if the Peach pencil she's talking about is from other times in the show as I know Pam in the books has two very different looks one for work and one out of work (Vampy and fashionista-mom ideal). Thanks again! :D

  7. I know a makeup artist from set and they use a lot of Julie Hewett Noir red lipsticks; just tried them & they are pretty amazing! Pam wore Femme Noir for her recent EW spread.

    1. No I don't I'm sorry. I haven't been watching the new season. I hunted down the video and saw the lipstick part but the packaging is too generic for me to be able to tell. Sorry!

    2. Probably I found answer for my question ;) Probably this is just a NARS - color is bagatelle ;)
