Laugh all you want, but I’ve been bitten by a vampire.

The culprit? Luna Twilight’s Just Bitten lip stain, one of a complete line makeup products inspired by Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling ‘Twilight’ series and Summit Entertainment’s blockbuster films.

This latest merchandising monster has two main themes – Luna Twilight and Volturi Twilight – to coincide with the release of ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon,’ the second of the 4-part series, which smashed box office records and grossed over $200M worldwide since it’s theatric release Nov. 20.

Luna Twilight, the tamer of the two brands, is represented by a barren tree symbolizing the romantic forest backdrops of the stories setting in the small town of Forks, Wash. Awash in a palate full of pinks and berry, this line embodies the beauty of being human, and the romance of falling in love. Of course, you can’t overlook the First Light Face Glow, which gives the wearer an ethereal hint of something special.

Volturi Twilight is the one who beckons the bad girl. Those who’ve read the book recognize the evil thread winding through the tale of the Volturi, the eldest and most powerful of all vampires, and this colorful makeup reflects that sentiment. The Immortal Liquid Body Shimmer makes you sparkle like Edward and Alice, while the signature Twilight Venom (yes, the famous DuWop product with a vampire spin) plumps your lips to make the nice and kissable.

Starting at around $20 a pop, the Luna Twilight lineup is the sophisticated big sister, for sure, but you can expect to get the ‘bite’ for your buck. The Volturi products are cheaper (expect to spend $10-15) and more geared toward the teens than the adults, but I don’t see why all ages can’t enjoy both. And, for the purists, the Luna Twilight lip-cheek-eye palettes ($28) are named for your favorite female characters.

On an impulsive whim, I purchased my Luna Twilight Just Bitten lip stain in Blush at Nordstrom. I was taken first by the cache of the brand and enthralled by the packaging (so pretty to pull out of your purse!), but it was the quality and color that really sold me.

Just Bitten: Blush ($18) is a rich berry red that sweeps on the lips like silk. This line of lip stain is more of a balm than a matte lipstick, which gives it a dewy appeal that’s so on-trend this season. As such, the color can be as light as a just-kissed blush or pack the drama of a true blood red.

Both lines are naughty, nice and a bit silly, even for the diehard fans of the books and films, but the quality can’t deceive anyone.

Yes, I’ve been bitten by a Twilight vampire, and I’ve got the blood red lips to prove it.
(Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but I’m Team Jacob.)
