So, if you prefer yours shaken, not stirred, then keep reading for more juicy details on these luscious Lancôme lippies.
Shake it! Twist it! Love it! Lancôme is bringing the fun. Did you know that Juicy Shakers are actually an amalgamation of Lancôme’s original 1946 ‘Shaker’ lipstick and their iconic juicy tubes? As a makeup-crazy teenager in 2000, I was obsessed with those zesty little tubes which we can all agree revolutionized a new era in makeup. I have to hand it to Lancôme as they’ve successfully encapsulated the fun-loving attitude and avant-garde shaker silhouette from both of their ‘retro’ releases. Juicy Shakers are a grown-up reboot of Juicy Tubes and I’m more than a little bit nostalgic about it.
The addictive colours and mouth-watering scents will soon become a handbag staple. You can have your pick of the menu with a selection of 20 shades (8 available in South Africa) showcasing cute names such as “Walk the Lime”, “Wonder Melon”, and “Apricute”. Bartender, I’ll take one of each. These will certainly win your heart with a splash of colour, adorable packaging, and comfortably smooth texture. Juicy Shakers require a little shake and the more you shake the stronger the color gets. The Juicy Shaker formula consists of two phases – oils and pigments. Get ready to be impressed. The sheer Juicy Shaker lip glosses are formulated with a selection of silky oils, namely – peach kernel, sweet almond, cranberry, and musk rose. Another impressive feature that these aptly named glosses displays is the cushion applicator – a velvety soft sponge that absorbs just enough product and deposits a perfect film of glossy colour with a single stroke. These non-sticky glosses will leave you licking your lips and asking for more. You can find Juicy Shakers at all Lancôme counters for R270 each.
