Lancôme Juicy Shaker

Lancôme's makeup department has been going through a bit of a transformation since Lisa Eldridge took the lead, to say the least. She's been digging through Lancôme's archives for inspiration & hasn't neglected her love for Korean and Japanese beauty trends, which makes for a very interesting and exciting bunch of new launches. The new Juicy Shaker lip gloss seems to be all the hype these days with the #bantheboring campaign, so I happily added one to my handbag the past few weeks to check out all that hype.

The Juicy Shaker is a modern version of the Juicy Tubes we all wanted in high school (although I never really had the funds..) and the vintage 1946 cocktail shaker lipstick. Add to that the much hyped Asian cushion applicator & a bi-phase oil formula and you have a lightly pigmented and nourishing handbag staple. When you first use the Juicy Shaker you need to give it a good shake - hence the name - for the pigments and the oil to blend together. If you leave it in your handbag I don't find you need to shake it too much, but when you leave it out on your vanity table for a few days you'll need to give it another good shake. The little cushion applicators are surprisingly handy: they hold the right amount of product and the shape is easy to use. When you first start using it only the tip will hold product, but after a while the applicator will be completely saturated with product. I trace my lips with the tip, although you could also dab the oil on if you like.

The formula is quite moisturising: sweet almond oil, musk rose oil, peach kernel oil & cranberry oil do the job and - very importantly - it's not sticky at all. The pigmentation is not as vibrant as you'd think judging by the bottle and the campaign images, it rather leaves a sheer flush of glossy colour on the lips. I've only tried two shades that are quite different from each other, but I do think that colours that look alike in the bottle might end up looking exactly the same on your lips.. So look out for that when you're buying more than one of these.

In terms of reapplication I'd put this in the chapstick department: I apply it whenever I feel like I need to, which is more often than a regular lipstick or lip gloss. I don't really mind, but if you're looking for something long lasting you won't be impressed with this one. You will however notice a slight stain that stays on your lips and intensifies a little as you keep reapplying. Another fun bit is the sweet scents and flavours of these, all inspired by their name. Walk The Lime has a lime scent, while Berry in Love of course smells like blackberries. It definitely takes me back to my high school years - these oils would've rocked our high school for sure!
