The Lancôme Juicy Shaker is new this season, and is a well anticipated product come spring. What first caught my attention was the innovative packaging. It’s luxurious and elegant, yet fun and young.
To open you simply unscrew the cap, which then present to us the cushion applicator. At first it might seem like an odd one, but it’s fairly easy to apply. I dare say you might even apply without a mirror, and that’s about as easy as it gets.
If you haven’t heard about the Lancôme Juicy Shaker yet, it’s a lip gloss with a bi phased formula pairing nourishing lip oils with beautiful pigments for plump but natural looking, glossy lips. These nourishing oils contain sweet almond oil, omega 3 and cranberry oil – according to Lancôme’s website! The nourishing lip oils and the pigment tend to separate during the day, so before each use you have to shake it (hence the name, I guess). Depending on how pigmented you want it you can vary your shaking time; the more you shake it, the more pigmented it’ll be.
I found that the formula is quite sheer, but it’s buildable to about medium coverage.
What I love about this lip gloss is that it doesn’t feel like a lip gloss at all! I hate that sticky feeling you’re usually left with, but this one doesn’t have that. Your lips are left soft and oily, which I guess causes the shine. Over the course of a few hours your lips will absorb the oil, and you’re left with a stain.
It’s currently 13 permanent shades in the collection, available since March 16th. I’ve only tried one of these yet, which is Mangoes Wild.
In the above pictures I’m wearing Lancôme Juicy Shaker Mangoes Wild. In the first one I’m wearing nothing on my upper lip, so you can properly see the pigmentation for yourself.
It retails for $21 / £18.
