Lancome Juicy Shaker review

All summer long I have been wearing these juicy and fruity lip oils by Lancome.

They are designed with a unique bi-phase formulation that needs to be mixed before application and promise a non-sticky and lightweight finish that radiates and nourishes.

Packaging:

They look like mini cocktail shakers! The applicator is very unusual and shaped like a tapered dome. It is a soft and cushiony sponge that makes application a bliss. The applicator absorbs just the right amount of product and it doesn’t sit drenched in the actual lip oil.

I just dab it on lips and get a bare lips look, yet plumped up hydrated finish. The formula is very nourishing.

The packaging of the Juicy Shakers is the first of its kind (as far as I know). Honestly, I think it is very adorable and the cushion applicator feels super soft on the lips.

Formulation

Lancome Juicy Shakers have a bi-phase formulation that needs to be mixed before applying. Combination of 4 nourishing oils treats your lips like a lip balm: Peach kernel oil softens lips while Sweet Almond oil conditions and Cranberry oil provides rich anti-oxidant properties. Muscat Rose oil helps to soothe lips. It seems that the bi-phase separates easily but in reality, the product needs to sit undisturbed for at least a day before you would actually see the complete separation of the two layers. You will still need to shake these before each use.

I have three shades: Meli Melon, Mangoes Wild and Berry in Love.

There are 18 different shades available and each has its unique scent. In terms of formulation, these are incredibly moisturizing, lightweight and comfortable on the lips.

Application

The application is sheer on the lips and the colors all look natural and pretty. They are easy to apply and you can easily do it without the mirror and on the go. No brainer.

The transparent sheen and light tint on the lips fades away in just a couple of hours and once the sheen is gone, the moisture goes along with it.

They are all scented differently and I love that they smell like their name suggests. The shade Berry in Love smells like blackberry, Meli Melon like a true ripe melon and Mangoes Wild like a juicy mango.

Overall

I actually quite like them. The fast and easy application, the smell, the packaging… They are just too cute and fun! Plus, the formulation feels so comfortable on the lips and perfect for the summer time…
