Laura Mercier Gel Lipcolor

The LM Gel Lipcolors are finally here!! But not at Sephora.. so I ended up going to Holt Renfrew to get one ($27). I'm in love with the formula.. I haven't tried the other LM lipsticks yet but I can imagine they're just as creamy and smooth. The gel lipcolor feels very light and goes on sheer, but I still manage to get color on my lips.

I picked up the Hibiscus Bloom shade. The other ones were a bit too flashy for me and Clementine was too similar to Grapefruit (which I already have)


Hibiscus Bloom is a bright pink slightly cool shade, but matches well with my skintone. My lips are pigmented so the color appears more of a fushia red shade but still very wearable.
It's hard to capture the colors on my camera, but Hibiscus Bloom is definitely different from Grapefruit (which is more of a coral pink).

Here you can really see the difference. The lipsticks are so smooth and lasts very long, but does not last through meal time.
Hibiscus Bloom has a slightly sweet smell and taste much like Grapefruit.
They're supposed to be LE at Holt Renfrew so check it out if you haven't already!

Have you ever seen this YT video?


It's DIY sushi candies! So worth the $5 for the fun but tastes TERRIBLE!!!!!! I've also tried the bento box set, but didn't turn out as pretty as this one. I got mine at the Pacific Mall candy stores.

I see it at T&T all the time but since everyone is saying how horrible it tastes, I'm not going to try it out.
