Review: Lancome Juicy Shakers #bantheboring

One of the first things I change when the sun starts being more present and I start getting Spring feelings is the colour of my make up. I still stick to my usual winged eyeliner, but I go for softer tones on my lips and new brighter colors on my nails!

The latest Juicy Shakers from Lancôme have been a great discovery on this renewed everyday make up. They are very comfortable to apply, with an oily base that smoothes the lips, and a sheer pigment you can build up by gently tapping the cushioned applicator. 

First thing to notice is that they look like cocktail shakers. They have a bi-fasic formula of oil and pigment that you need to shake before applying - like a cocktail. And I had never seen anything similar to this conical applicator. It is velvety smooth and also feels great on the lips. 

First thing I noticed when I applied them, was that the first layer is very sheer. You can keep dabbing the applicator and get some more colour, that actually feels very natural.  Another thing I love is that you don’t really need a mirror to apply these correctly. So they are perfect for a quick touch up on the go! 

It is one of those products you’ll want to have in your handbag, as you’ll need to reapply throughout the day. The formula has moisturizing and conditioning properties, and they are not sticky at all, so it wears off every couple of hours and there’s a need for reapplying. But it feels great to do so!

Lancôme have included four precious oils to smooth and plump the lips: 

Peach kernel oil:softening and nourishing.
Sweet almond oil: to leave lips supple and re-structured.
Cranberry oil: anti-oxidant, protective and restorative of skin’s protective barrier.
Musk rose oil : regenerating and soothing.

I love that Lancome was able to give such a modern touch the their iconic Juicy tubes from 2000. 

The full range of 14 shades is available exclusively in Selfridges, and on Lancome.co.uk at the moment for £18.

What do you think about these? Have you tried them?
