I gotten myself this Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker which is a limited edition colour under the Laura Mercier Summer 2014 Colour Story : New Attitude Collection which I blogged earlier on here.
Before I swatch and share my review about this Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker, let me recap that for this 2014 summer Laura Mercier released 4 limited editions colour gel lip colour. Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour is an innovative gel-based lipstick that cushions lips in comforting, sheer colour with a shine finish and subtle sweet vanilla flavor. The super smooth formula leaves lips conditioned and hydrated. Out of the 4 colours, Heartbreaker and Clementine are my favourites.
A before picture. (p/s: My lip is pretty dry nowadays thanks to the bad weather.)
Believe it or not I don't really have a lot of sweet pink lipstick colours like this in my stash because I think it's too girlish for me. Nude lipstick is not my colour too because I have quite a pinkish lip colour and usually I would prefer to go bright colour like for red, berry or coral colour. Nevertheless let me see if I could carry this Heartbreaker soft pink shade now :)

Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker on my lips
Review : Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker colour turned out to be really pretty and sweet on my lips and it actually make me feel younger. The lipstick is smooth and easy to apply but it need a little bit of effort to balance up the colour on my lips ( at least 2-3 layers is needed) as the colour is sheer with shine finishing. I like how this feel somehow hydrating on my lips, unfortunately it is not really lasting. It lasted me a 2 to 3 hours only and if I'm having a meal with it... I need to do touchup immediately after that. And I do realise the problem when I apply sheer colour like this, the lines on my lips looks so much obvious now :(
The sweet look I have created to match Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker.
Pink eyeshadow, pink cheek and pink lips!
I put on Lavshuca Eye Shadow CS in PK-1 (light pink on the inner corner of my eyes and purple on the outer corner of my eyes). Top up with a little bit of brown eyeshadow on top of the purple colour. And I had my fav Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush on my cheek!
Now do you think I have a Heartbreaker look?
