Shake it! Twist it! Love it! These new babies on the market have shaken the beauty upside down and are capturing everyone’s hearts- and lips! The Lancôme Juicy Shakers are addictive tinted lip oils with a little hint of colour that will turn you on! It’s a seriously addictive lip oil with a pillowy-soft cushion applicator that provides you with a delicious shot of light colour and a hint of shine.
I’m going to put this out now before I even start the review- if you are looking for a full colour coverage product, this is not for you. As bright as they may look in their uber cute shaker bottles, Juicy Shakers are tinted lip oils, and hence, the colour pay off that they provide is very sheer. If you are looking for something very bright, then Lancôme suggests applying the L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks first, to build your lip cocktail base. Then you add a ‘shot’ of flavour and non-sticky shine to your cocktail by tapping a Juicy Shaker onto your lips.
You can’t help but fall in love with their gorgeous packaging, and I know everyone has raved about it, and I agree with them! This is just the cutest (and the most fabulous) thing to have in your handbag or on your beauty stand, as it quite literally looks like a small cocktail shaker. The shape of the Juicy Shakers is a nod to their original 1945 Lipstick Shaker shape, mixed with the formula of the legendary Juicy Tubes. I know everyone went wild for them back in the 90s and early 2000s, but I was literally a kid back then so the hype completely missed me. I only discovered Juicy Tubes when they were on their way out, and I could see why people liked them so much- applying them onto your lips felt addictive!
Out of the 8 shades available in South Africa, I got 3- Berry In Love, Berry Tale and Walk The Lime. What I loved about the Juicy Shakers is that they also have a lovely scent- each one attached to their shade. The most addictive parts about them for me are their formula and the applicator. The formula is a bi-phase technology so when the shakers are left lying still you can see the 2 formulas separate (just like in the picture below).
That’s why you got to use them shaken, not stirred ;). The cocktail blend of 4 nourishing oils treats your lips like a lip balm! The cocktail of oils is the Peach kernel oil(known to softens lips) the Sweet Almond oil, Cranberry oil(which provides rich anti-oxidant properties) and the Muscat Rose oil(which is rich in essential fatty acids to help and soothe lips). This is just what you need to keep your lips looking great and feeling nourished this winter.
The adorable sponge applicators are the best part of the Juicy Shaker for me! They are so soft, they feel like a little pillow for your lips. Every applicator leaves enough of a tint and nourishment to cover the whole lip, but I love reapplying it every 30 minutes. The oil formula does tend to leave your lips pretty quickly, but the tint of the Shaker still stays. How divine!
A quick overview and swatch of each colour
Berry In Love
This is Lupitas shade in which she just looks oh-so gorge! It comes out very light purple on your lips and smells like delicious raspberries and blueberries
Walk The Lime
A zesty, warm red to warm up your heart and your lips this winter. I love its yummy smell and it comes out a soft red on your lips.
A mixture between a purple and a red, although this is described as a bright pink, I would say it’s a light pink rather. It also smells like yummy berries and leaves your lips with a light pink tint.
The Juicy Shakers retail for R270 each and are available online as well as select Lancôme counters!
