You might have seen or else heard a few things about the new ‘Beauty Shakers’ online at present as they are without a hesitation the most exciting beauty launch of the year so far. They associate the fun vibe of the original Lancôme Juicy Tubes, with a more modern texture and even more inventive packaging and application.
Those stylish (but still fun!) version of childhood lip balms is still popular. Taking nostalgia and current attractive trends into account, Lancôme is set to take off the next generation of flavored lip color this April with the Juicy Shaker. The vivacious oil treatments are inspired by those standard Juicy Tubes and one of the brand’s products from 1946, The Shaker. The Shaker was a lipstick that performed a martini-shaker-shaped silhouette, as this was the time period when the cocktails were very in fashion. You’ll see that same shape in this novel item’s packaging.
For a lip junkie, there are many attributes that make Juicy Shaker special. As soon as you open the box, you’ll find that the color has established to the bottom of the bottle, letting the nourishing blend of apricot, peach, cranberry, almond, and rose de muscat oils rise to the top. Take the bundle and shake it you’ll catch the familiar sound of a martini shaker as you mix you’re beautifying cocktail.
Once you open the cap, you’ll find an innovative cushion applicator. Applying it onto your lips feels like kissing a super soft teddy bear as well as leaves your pout infused with a sheer wash of color.
But possibly the best parts about Juicy Shaker are the shades and the flavors! There are 20 different shades and each corresponds to its own unique, delightful scent. While most are vivacious with fruity aromas, containing Berry in Love and Mangoes Wild, there are a few astonishing options. There’s a bright blue formula called Mint to Be, which Lancôme stated a lip beautifier, as the cool tone improves your complexion whereas making teeth look whiter
They are basically a tinted lip oil and are very analogous in texture to the YSL tint-in-oils that launched last year. It’s the packaging as well as an application is what makes them quite special. You have to agitate the cute cocktail-shaker-shaped tube before use to associate the pigment and oil, then use the wide cushion sponge applicator to apply them to your lips. There are three minor holes that sit just under the sponge to guarantee that exactly the right amount of product is placed onto the tip. The sponge itself feels like nothing else have ever tried before.
The oil texture is really smooth as well as glides onto the lips. The pigmentation is quite sheer but buildable to an intermediate level of pigmentation for the deeper shades. Lancôme were kind enough to send me eight of the shades to try and I’ve swatched them. Some are matte colors, some have a shimmer successively through them, but they all give the same fresh glossy finish and all are totally non-sticky.
