Giving Lips an Attitude Adjustment With Flushed, Heartbreaker and Temptation: New Gel Lip Colours by Laura Mercier

Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker


To quote the great Rachael Ray of 30-Minute Meals, “YUM-O.”

Whenever I get one of Laura Mercier’s Gel Lip Colours on my lips, my tummy rumbles because they taste so good! I’m tempted to bite into one like it’s a big butterscotch popsicle.


They taste and smell like butterscotch to me, also known as “one of the fine flavors of my youth.” Seriously, I used to walk to the corner store and get candy from those Brach’s Candy tubs, and I was all about the butterscotch, mah!

This summer, as part of her New Attitude summer collection, Laura is adding four new limited edition shades to her sheer, smooth Gel Lip Colour line in Heartbreaker, Flushed, Temptation and Clementine. The lightweight, moisturizing formula conditions lips while it hydrates them.

These lippies are all about casual — great for gals/guys who just want a little color on their lips without being weighed down by a heavy, full-coverage lip product.

Perfect for summer.

Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Temptation


HeartbreakerI’ve been going back and forth among three of the four shades — beige Flushed, pink Heartbreaker (my fave!) and berry Temptation — which I like to wear on lazy weekends.

They only last about an hour on my lips, so when I wear one, I keep it in my purse for frequent touchups.

    So the staying power isn’t good which is such a shame because the colors are too pretty! Heartbreaker is tempting but I guess this has to wait!

    Love Heartbreaker! I never seem to mind touching up lightweight lip products, especially because I expect them to wear off.

    Wow, Heartbreaker looks so much brighter on you it’s very surprising! I have the same wear time issue though. If I drink something it just slides off, and I’m not sure I can get on board with that.

    in the photos where you are wearing Heartbreaker and Flushed, your eye make-up is fantastic. I think the outer shadow is maybe a blue-silver? Do you have tutorials on how to make my eyes just like that? I don’t usually wear eyeshadow but would certainly learn to look like that!!!

    too bad they don’t last very long, I love the shades!

    I wish Laura Mercier’s lip products weren’t scented/flavored (even with butterscotch!). My lips sometimes react badly to flavored lip products, but I never know til I’ve worn them a few times. Otherwise I’d be buying *batches* of her stuff.
