I have been so excited about this latest offering from Lancôme ever since watching Lisa Eldridge share it with us all on YouTube. They finally hit the shelves last Monday, and I am pleased to report they exceed my expectations!
The Juicy Shaker lip gloss is like no other lip product I own. It is called a lip gloss, but it certainly doesn’t feel like one. This lip gloss has a bi phased formula that combines nourishing oils with beautiful pigments for plump but natural looking, glossy lips. The oils contain sweet almond oil, omega 3 and cranberry oil that just sink into my lips. I have read about lip oils in the past, but have never tried one until now.
The Juicy Shaker is a cross between the 1945 shaker lipstick and the iconic Juicy Tubes from the 1990’s. Before application it is important to shake the Juicy Shaker well. It has two little ball bearings in the tube that make for a very satisfying noise when doing so! This process helps to mix the oils together making it just right for application. Once you are satisfied the colour has mixed, twist open the lid to reveal the cushion applicator that has absorbed just the right amount of pigment. The shape of the applicator makes application a dream and makes applying in the corners of your mouth as easy as the fullest part.
So, would I recommend the Lancôme Juicy Shaker? I most certainly would!
There were not a great deal of colours left when I hit the Lancôme counter, but I decided to try Walk the Lime. In the shaker it looks very orange but on application the orange is not strong and is flattering on my cool skin tone. The lime scent is not strong, but is detectable. The nourishing oils make this product non sticky and non drying and the finish is very pretty. The oils plump up my lips and hide any fine lines my lips naturally have. Application is very easy and a mirror is not a necessity as it is so sheer. I am looking forward to trying out some more colours in the collection and seeing if the colours look more visible on my lips. I would recommend trying these out if you get the opportunity. The formula would be perfect for wearing in the day and giving that pretty spring finish!
The staying power is not particularly great, but when the product is such a dream to apply this doesn’t bother me in the slightest!
You can purchase the Lancôme Juicy Shaker for £18.00.
