Lancome Juicy Shakers review
The 15 year old me had a minor obsession with Lancôme’s Juicy Tubes. Maybe it was because they were *just* affordable enough for a teenager with a part-time job to be able to buy one as a treat, or maybe it was that fruity scent and glossy finish that did it. I don’t know, but I’m pleased to see that their new Juicy Shakers will appeal to a young and more mature audience all at once and I’ve been just as pleased with these as I was 15-odd years ago with my first ever Juicy Tube.

Juicy Shakers are a lightweight, semi-glossy lip tint, which mingles a combination of hydrating oils with a barely there hint of colour. You need to give them a good shake before applying them to mix the formula together – the oil and pigment separate slightly throughout the day, so give it a good shake before each use.

The little sponge applicator is a really good shape for getting an even application and makes it super simple to do with or without a mirror. As the pigmentation is quite light, these work really well used alone for a glossy lip, or used over the top of a stronger lipstick to add a shiny finish.

I normally avoid glosses at all costs nowadays, but these are an absolute joy to wear as the oil base means there’s no sticky finish I normally associate with a gloss. They also help to condition your lips while you wear them; double win!

There are 13 shades to choose from, plus Mint To Be, a limited edition one for Spring. Each has a fruity name and a corresponding fruity scent – my favourite is currently Freedom of Peach, but I also want to get my hands on Mangoes Wild and Meli Melon as they sound divine!

Juicy Shakers cost £18 each and can be found across Lancôme counters now.

Are you an old school Juicy Tubes fan? Do you like the sound of the new Juicy Shakers?
