Lancome Juicy Shaker in Berry in love

Hello beauties! I hope you are all doing well.

I'm sure a lot of you would have seen this product online on various social media and it's been so popular for a good reason. I can't wait to share with you my thoughts on Lancôme's newest lip revolution - Juicy Shaker ($34 AUD, 6.5ml/0.22 fl oz) as they have finally arrived in Australia.

Remember the good old original Juicy Tubes and the classic Shaker lipsticks from 1940s? These Juicy Shakers are inspired by the two iconic products of the brand. Incorporating new technology, Lancôme brings to us an innovative concept, a new formula and some fun shades for the Spring and Summer.

Lancome Juicy Shaker Biphasic formula

Why is it shaped like a cocktail shaker? Juicy Shaker is a vibrant lip oil treatment with a biphasic formula that requires you to "shake" the two phases together to create this lip cocktail. In the picture above, you can see the separation of the two phases when you leave it untouched. Phase 1 (top) is a blend of 5 nourishing oils to provide comfort and the non-sticky shine, where phase 2 (bottom) contains the real pigments that give the flush of colour.

Here is some information on the 5 different oils:

"Peach kernel oil, a well-known emollient, softens lips while sweet almond oil conditions, apricot oil hydrates, and cranberry oil provides rich antioxidant properties. Muscat rose oil, which is rich in essential fatty acids, helps to soothe your lips." - Sephora.com

The formula is somewhat very similar to the YSL Tint-in-oil, which I love love love - I feel like I'm cheating on my YSL by saying this, but I do find the Juicy Shaker is thinner and more comfortable to wear on the lips. It is non-sticky and it glides on so smoothly. This gives a sheer layer of colour to the lips with a glossy finish. You can also apply a few coats to build the intensity of the colour or layer it over lip liner or lipstick for a more pigmented look (I have included some swatches below). If your natural lips are quite pigmented and you want to wear this on its own, I suggest you try out the darker shades as they would show up better.

Lancome Juicy Shaker and sponge cushion applicator

To apply, first you have to shake the bottle to combine the pigments and oil until you see they are no longer separated. Then you simply twist open the cap and use the cushion applicator to dab on the pigment infused oil onto your pout for a glossy flush of colour.

Once you twisted open the cap, you will see inside the bottom half there are three tiny holes sitting just underneath the cushion applicator. These holes allow just the right amount of product to deposit onto the applicator when you shake to mix the pigment and oil.

Lancome Juicy Shaker Sponge Cushion Applicator

The unique cushion applicator is also another highlight of this product. It has a chubby cone shape that is well fitted to my lip shape and you can reach the corners with the tapered tip. It feels so gentle and squishy on the lips when I apply the lip oil. It is unlike any other lip applicator I've come across, something different. It almost feels like those Konjac sponges but softer (that is the closest thing I could think of), it's very hard to explain the texture.

The shade I received as a press sample is 283 Berry In Love, here are some swatches:

As I have mentioned before, you can always layer the Juicy Shaker over any lip liner or lipstick for a shiny gloss and a more pigmented look. Below are some examples of layering Berry In Love over different lipstick shades (left side is the lipstick itself and right side is layered) :

The Juicy Shaker has now released exclusively online at Lancôme and it will be available on 8th May 2016 at all Lancôme counters in Australia (you can now also find them online at MECCA, Myer and David Jones). It retails for $34 AUD each and you can also get them in duos ($62 AUD) and trios ($90 AUD) There are 14 shades available in Australia (and 20 in the U.S.), some of the shades have a subtle shimmer throughout. Each shade has a different scent that matches their shade names, for instance, 283 Berry In Love smells like a mixture of berries - so delicious!

The only con I could think of is the staying power. Compared to other lip lacquers or glosses, lip oils tend to last around 3-4 hours. It is a product that you would have to reapply a few times throughout the day, especially after your meal, which I don't really mind because it feels so luxurious to apply.

I think I have found my new favourite lip oil for everyday and I might have just ordered a few more shades to feed my sheer lipstick obsession (shhhhhhhh...). What do you guys think? Will you be checking these out?
