Disclosure: This review is based on products provided to me by a representative of Lancome.
Lancome has released a tinted lip oil, the Lancome Juicy Shaker, which is absolutely perfect for those who like a sheer tinted moisturizing gloss. I am in love with them! I am a lip balm addict and pretty much rely on either balms or oils to keep my lips happy. I like gloss, but often glosses get sticky. Lip oil does not. The new Juicy Shakers are perfect for my daily regular lip wear. They have many of the same attributes as Lancome Juicy Tubes, which I also have always liked, but are definitely more of an oil than a gloss. I like these better than the Juicy Tubes!
The Juicy Shaker formula is a blend of essential oils and pigments. The oils are Musk Rose Oil, Cranberry Oil, Peach Oil, and Almond Oil. Each shade is lightly pigmented and has light candy flavor. I barely noticed the flavor, which is preferable to me.
Mostly, I love how easy these are to apply with the include thick tipped sponge applicator and how they feel. They feel delightfully smooth. Absolutely no stickiness! The bit of added tint is a bonus. Note though that the tint is quite light. If you want much color to show up, choose one of the darker shades.
The permanent Lancome Juicy Shaker collection has seventeen shades. Here are swatches. As you can see, they are very sheer, so the reds tend to come out looking pink. From left to right: Mint to Be, Great-Fruit, Wondermelon, Melimelon, Boom-Meringue, Lemon Explosion, Show Me the Honey, Freedom of Peach, and Apri-Cute.
More swatches from left to right: Cherry Symphony, Bohemian Raspberry, Walk the Line, Vanilla Pop, Mangoes Wild, Berry Tale, Piece of Cake, and Berry in Love.
The surprise here was that the shade Bohemian Raspberry looks like a orange based red in the bottle and really comes out looking like a pink berry. It turned out to be one of my favorite shades, but I would not have picked it based on the bottle color. Here is a look at the Bohemian Raspberry Bottle and Applicator. The shade is actually closer to how it appears on the applicator. The lesson here is go by swatches or try these out at the store to get just the shade that you want.
You can buy Lancome Juicy Shakers at Lancome counters and can also buy them here at Sephora.com.
