Lancome Juicy Shakers - My Two Cents



Spring is officially here and I can already start noticing that the days are getting lighter, the mornings warmer and the sun is coming out more often. With that, brands are finally launching their more colourful and summer-inspired collections and in line of course there was Lancome. The Juicy Shakers came out recently and I managed to get my hands on a couple that were sent to me, plus I totally stole one from my mum because she didn't like it. And with that revealed, you can imagine that this little review will be a bit mixed. 

So these little cute glosses cost £18 which is not exactly cheap. They come in huge variety of shades (13 to be exact with an extra limited edition one, Mint To Be) and what makes them special is the fact that they contain a bi phased formula pairing nourishing lip oils with beautiful pigments for plump but natural looking, glossy lips. These nourishing oils contain sweet almond oil, omega 3 and cranberry oil which is all great. 

What makes them stand out even more is the odd spongy applicator that according to the brand absorbs just the right amount of oil that you then dab on your lips but personally I found myself having to go in more than once to fully apply it nicely everywhere. As you can imagine the formula is indeed not sticky and non drying. Before applying it you have to shake the product well as it separates inside. I have the shades Mint To Be, Freedom of Peach* and Apri-Cute* (love the names). 

You guys know I'm a huge fan of the brand, I enjoy their foundations and the mascaras a lot so of course with each release, there's that pressure to really impress me and all the other loyal buyers of their products. When writing this review I realised that I'm stuck in the middle. I don't love these but I don't dislike them. I find the pigment to be a little too weak for what you pay for and despite the concept being great, I still gravitate more towards my regular balms if my lips are looking dry. I'm not a huge fan of the smell either. Each one has a different scent that matches the fruit and colour but I found it to be way too strong for my linking. 

Overall it's a 'meh' from me. I know many bloggers love these and that's fair enough but personally I wouldn't really spend £18 on these Juicy Shakers at all. That's just my two cents. I'd love to know what you think though! Let me know in the comments or tweet me (@KrisEvilCupcake). I hope you found this review helpful. 

XOXO

  1. I feel the same about these. Just 'meh'. I have one and it's nice if I want a tint as well as moisture for my lips, but they're far too sheer for the price.

  2. I've seen a lot about these, they do look really cool and I would be interested in trying them, however trying them is definitely not a must for me! I agree, I'd rather spend money on a lipstick that has a stronger colour payoff that will last longer! Great review :) xo

    1. Thanks lovely :) Trying one is cool but I wouldn't go crazy and collect all the shades, that's for sure x

  3. Bloggers everywhere seem to be raving about them, but I'd personally be wary at that price too! I've not seen the blue one before, it looks very bold

  9. I went to check them out when they launched and indeed a bit of a meh..interesting concept but just not pigmented enough for me, and quite similar to the YSL ones..

  10. I like the idea of them but oils/glosses just aren't for me. I would like to smell them though. I'm so curious by the blue one though, it's so unusual xx

  16. The juicy shakers look good, but I find them a bit too expensive. My favourite lipgloss is actually the pink vaseline - keeps my lips moist and rosey for a fraction of the price! :)

  17. "Oil infused" products tend to always be a lot more expensive than others which is fair enough. I really like the idea of the Mint one and it's quite unique but I couldn't justify buying all the other colours since they hardly look any different from each other.

  18. I love the look of these, so it's a shame you didn't love them. I agree though, the pigmentation needs to be great for the price.

  19. I can totally see why you have a mixed opinion about these! The concept is really cute and the variety of shades is exciting, but I feel like if they'd been released by a drugstore brand they'd be received in the same way. I'm not saying they wouldn't be any good, but they just seem a little...gimmicky, maybe?

  20. I've seen a lot of people rave about these lately and have had mixed decisions as whether to splurge and get one myself. I've never bought from Lancome before but for the price of these, I'd want them to be more pigmented too so on that note, I think I'll give them a miss! Thank you for this review!
