When I first heard the news about Lancôme‘s new Juicy Shaker back in November 2015, I
almost screamed with excitement and I couldn’t wait for the spring to arrive. This little gem is one of the most anticipated lip products for 2016, it’s unique, it’s different and when Lisa Eldridge is involved, you know it’s going to be amazing.
Lancôme Juicy Shaker is a mix between the original Cocktail Shaker Lipstick from 1945 and the famous Juicy Tubes from the 1990s. It’s a lip gloss with bi-phase formula combining nourishing lip oils and beautiful pigments for natural looking but glossy and plump lips. The oils contain Omega 3 and 6, Almond Oil, Peach Seed Oil, Muscat Rose Oil and Cranberry Oil for hydrated and soft lips.
The tiny shaker packaging comes with a cushion applicator that is very bouncy and comfortable on the lips, it has a really good shape that makes the application really easy. The formula of the gloss is incredibly moisturising and non-sticky and you can build up the pigment to the desired level by simply adding a few layers of the product. Give it a good shake before use, so that the oils and the pigment mix together. Then dab (don’t swipe) the product onto the lips to really press the pigment and get the colour you want.
Juicy Shaker comes in 14 amazing shades, one of them, 400 Mint to Be, is limited edition. Each shade has its own fragrance and you can mix together different colours and fragrances to create your own Juicy Shaker.
I’m really excited to show you swatches of 12 of the shades, as I’m missing 283 Berry in Love and 400 Mint to Be.
My favourite shades are 252 Vanilla Pop, 301 Meli Melon, 372 Berry Tale and 381 Mangoes Wild. Some shades have shimmer in them, some don’t but all are really pretty. As you can see, 300 Lemon Explosion and 313 Boomeringue look very sheer and that’s because they are quite light pink shades with a lot of shimmer in them but when they’re applied on the lips, they do give a nice tint to them.
The lasting power isn’t the best but these glosses are such a pleasure to re-apply that I really don’t mind it and if this means that I’ll have juicy and nourished lips, I’m up for it! They actually keep my lips soft and moisturised even hours after the oil has faded
If you want to see these beauties in action and to learn which are Lisa‘s favourite colours, check out this video. You can already find them in Norway for the price of 195 kr.
Lancôme Juicy Shakers are fun, moisturising, beautiful and delicious lip glosses and they don’t seem to leave my handbag at the moment. I think I might be addicted to them!
