When I was at school, Lancome Juicy Tubes were a seriously big deal – you were no-one if you didn’t have at least a tube of the stuff poking out of your blazer. I think I’ve blazed through every colour they have, and I still keep their Lychee shade to hand if I’m after an easy pink glossy lip. So, when I found out Lancome was releasing a whole new take on lipgloss, I just had to try it out!
The brand new Juicy Shakers are available in 14 stunning shades, and are a hybrid of pigment and lip oil, which means you get a pretty lip colour as well as a real kick of moisture. They’re also a perfect choice if you want a product which is going to keep your lips in great condition too!
The packaging is inspired by an old Lancome lipstick which looked like a cocktail shaker, and before you use the glosses, you just give them a good shake. You can see the pigment and oil combine, and the more you shake them, the more intense colour you get. If, like me, you’re going to collect a couple of them, it’s great fun, as they all have different flavours and scents.
When I first got my hands on the two, I figured that they would be super sheer washes of colour, with the same, slightly sticky feel of my beloved Juicy Tubes. I couldn’t be more wrong! Mangoes Wild, especially, is a surprisingly vivid hit of pink-toned red which brightens the complexion, and makes teeth look super white. The feel of the Juicy Shakers is something completely new too!
You apply the Shakers using the sponge applicator tips which are super soft, and let the goodness sink in. The formula is incredibly lightweight, and silky soft thanks to the inclusion of sweet almond oil, omega 3 and cranberry oil. They leave lips feeling silky, with a perfect wash of colour. The lighter of my two (Lemon Explosion) has gone right into my handbag for day-to-day touch ups. It’s a sheer, slightly shimmery peachy-pink and it’s an effortless way to feel pulled together on the go.
I’m just obsessed with the non-sticky gloss and beautiful colours (I’ve already picked up a rather fetching Mint to Be) you’ve got to check these out!
