Lancôme has been causing a bit of a stir (or should I say shake?) since they announced their new Juicy Shaker line. The pigment-infused bi-phase lip oils combine the ultra-nourishing texture of an oil with colourful pigments to create a unique (and fun!) category of lip products.
First of all—the packaging is insanely cute. The little bottles resemble tiny martini shakers, which is made even more adorable by the fact you need to shake them before using them. If you don’t use your Juicy Shaker for a little while, you’ll notice the two phases separate, which is normal. That’s why you have to shake ‘em up! Shaking the product blends the oil and pigment while dispensing it onto the pillow-soft cushion applicator, which then can be used to apply it to the lips.
The more you shake, the more pigment gets on the applicator (and therefore the more pigmented the product will be on the lips). Having said that, I found to get a pretty decent punch of color, I had to shake the product about 3-4 times during application… which can lose its novelty over time. Therefore, if you’re looking for a super-pigmented lip product, I’d skip these. I really prefer these as just a sheer, tinted gloss.
One thing I really love? The scents! Each Juicy Shaker has a unique, delicious scent that will leave you completely addicted. The shades range from pinks to corals to reds that leave lips with a super glossy finish without any stickiness. It appears to be available in 20 shades in the USA (including a blue one!?) but only 10 in Canada!
Juicy Shaker was inspired by delicious scents of the iconic Lancôme Juicy Tubes as well as The Shaker, a lipstick encased in a martini shaker packaging from 1945. Combine the two together and you’ve got what is sure to be one of the hottest lip launches of the year.
They’re pretty fun, totally cute and honestly I just really like the way they look, feel and smell. My favorite shade? Freedom of Peach, a gorgeous peachy coral shade (I used it in this look we did) that will look fabulous with a tan this summer!
Lancôme Juicy Shakers retail for $21 and are available at Sephora.
