The Lancome Juicy Shakers are all over social media right now, and for good reason and I’ve already raved about the Lancome Wonder Melon Juicy Shaker here on my blog and today I have three more shades from the range; Cherry Symphony, Great-Fruit and Walk The Lime. If you’ve never heard of the Lancome Juicy Shakers, they are described as being the ultimate lip gloss which has a bi phased formula pairing nourishing lip oils with beautiful pigments for plump but natural looking, glossy lips. The Juicy Shakers contain nourishing sweet almond oil, omega 3 and cranberry oil and are available in a total of 12 shades and they retail for £18 each.
The packaging of the Lancome Juicy Shakers is just adorable as they’re shaped into mini cocktail shakers with a clear base and silver metal lid. Inside the shaker, there’s a pointed sponge which you use for application and it’s very soft, and helps to bounce the gloss across the lips. The magic with the Lancome Juicy Shakers is that you have full control over how much pigmentation you have, because you have to shake the bottle before use to mix the pigment and oil together, and the more you shake the bottle, the stronger the pigment will be and the sponge becomes more saturated with colour. This is such a unique concept, and I don’t think there’s anything at all like it on the market. Not only is application unique and quirky, each shade has a different scent and flavour..
Cherry Symphony is the darkest shade from the four that I own, and is a lovely cherry red. Great-Fruit is an peachy coral shade and Walk the Lime is almost a combination of the two and is a reddy coral shade. All three shades smell amazing, and they are quite similar; especially Great-Fruit and Walk The Lime, so I don’t think you’d necessarily need them both. These swatches are quite sheer, but you really can build the intensity up to resemble more of a lip stain which a few extra shakes.
The Lancome Juicy Shakers are so unique, but they’re not a gimmick in my opinion – they’re comfortable on the lips, they have a pretty shine and impart a good amount of pigment depending on how many times you shake the bottle. They don’t feel at all like a lip gloss as they’re not sticky, they’re very much a lip oil which feels rather nourishing on the lips. I would love to try some of the nude and pink shades from the collection, but there really is a shade for everyone.
