The Juicy Shaker is the latest lip offering from Lancôme, a pigment infused bi-phase lip oil which retails at £18. Now, when I first heard about these I thought they seemed like a bit of a gimmick but when I tested these out in store I was drawn in by how moisturised my lips felt. The product is part oil and part pigment based so when left to sit the pigment drops to the bottom and oil sits on the top, that’s where the ‘shaker’ part comes in. The packaging has been designed in the form of a cocktail shaker, you simply shake the product up (rather vigorously) to mix the oil and pigment together before use. Lancôme took inspiration from their world famous cocktail shaker lipstick from 1945 and their Juicy Tube lipgloss from the 90’s, mixed them together and out popped the Juicy Shaker.
The Juicy Shaker comes in 20 shades, each with their own unique scent. Vanilla Pop has a sweet vanilla scent, but is not sickly when applied and gives a very sheer wash of colour, in this case a lovely berry red. The oil gives a plump and glossy look to the lips and they felt nourished and hydrated after just one use. I would class this product as more of a lip treatment, with a hint of colour and sheen as an added bonus. This product doesn’t last a long time on the lips but because of the unique applicator, re-applying these are half of the fun anyway!
