A while ago I went shopping with a friend and she was interested in getting one of the Juicy Shakers from Lancome. I knew about their existence at that point, but I had no idea about what they were like and what they are supposed to do or anything like that. Not long after that moment though, I found one on sale that looked really interesting to me. I looked up some swatches and decided to purchase it. I have had and have been using this Lancome Juicy Shaker for quite some time now, so I figured today would be a great day for me to review it. So, long story short: if you’re interested in reading about this bright and fun looking lip product from Lancome, make sure you continue reading this post!
The main thing that caught my eye when I first looked at these Juicy Shakers from Lancome is their packaging. The name already gives it away a little bit, but the packaging of this lipgloss looks like one of those cocktail shakers. How cute is that?! When you shake the packaging you can hear the little metal ball that’s in it. This adds to the whole cocktail shaker experience. I do really like that about it. I think the packaging is already one thing that sets this lipgloss apart from others and it makes it stand out. It’s not just another simple lipgloss in a long, slim tube that looks like all of the other ones. I think in a big industry as the beauty industry is right now, standing out is very important and this is one way to do so.
Because this lipgloss is shaped like a cocktail shaker it does have a pretty small size. It’s like pocket size and therefore very easy for on the go. You can easily pop this in your bag and take it with you wherever you want. I do like that about it. And in terms of how much product is actually in it you really don’t have to worry. It comes with 6,5 ml and comparing that to my favourite Dior Addict Lipgloss, which comes with 6,5 ml as well, I think it’s a pretty standard amount. I have personally never finished a lipgloss before so the amount of product you get isn’t something I worry about in this case

Something else that’s special about this Juicy Shaker from Lancome is the applicator. Normally lipglosses come with these doe-foot applicators and this one doesn’t. Instead it has a soft cushion applicator. It’s something new and something that works a little differently, but I don’t mind it at all. I feel like it’s still easy to apply a neat layer of lipgloss with it and it feels really soft to the touch which is nice as well. I’m not sure if it’s per se very beneficial to the application proces, but I don’t think it’s bothering either so I’m fine with it.
In this range of Juicy Shakers there are tons of shades. The shade I ended up buying is called Freedom Of Peach, and therefore it’s a fun peachy colour. Looking at it in the tube it does look really bright. It might not come across that way on camera, but it’s almost neon looking. This did scare me quite a lot the first time I saw this bottle. That’s the thing with ordering makeup online, you never know what to expect. I thought it was going to be way to bright for me and I didn’t get why it looked nothing like it did in the swatch pictures I looked up before purchasing.
One thing I did forget to keep in mind though, is the fact that this is a lipgloss and therefore it’s not like a full-coverage thing. The colour will be a lot more sheer on the lips and since it’s a peach it might even end to look pretty natural as well. And that it definitely does. So in the end I do actually like the colour a lot. It’s a very pretty, natural but fun looking peach shade that does look pretty flattering on my skin tone in my opinion.
According to Lancome their Juicy Shaker adds a luscious colour to your lips. It’s fortified with a bi-phase formula that is supposed to synergise beautiful pigments and a nourishing blend of sweet almond oil, omega 3 and cranberry oil. This will result in super smooth, plump lips with a mirror-like shine. The lipgloss has a shake-to-wake formula that allows you to tailor the colour vibrancy of the lipgloss. If you prefer a more intensified look, you have to shake more. If you like the result to be rather sheer, you can shake a little less. The soft cushion applicator is supposed to hug the lip contour for a mistake-free finish.
All in all it sounds like a really nice lipgloss. I like the fact that this isn’t supposed to be just a gloss, but also more than that. I like the hydrating ingredients that are in here and I definitely think this will do something for my lips. I have noticed that the formula indeed does feel very soft and silky on the lips. It’s different from other lipglosses in a way that it’s more creamy. It’s really hard to describe such experiences but I hope it makes any sense. A side note I do need to make about this point is that the cushion feels really soft to the lips too, so that might influence the overall soft touch feel of the lipgloss.
Something I really like about these claims as well is that they claim that the vibrancy or the amount of pigment you want to get out of this lipgloss depends on how hard or how much you shake it. I really like this concept. I think it’s nice that it allows you to tailor the lipgloss just the way you like it and that you don’t have to build it up if you want it to be more colourful. I do think that you need to keep in mind this is and will always be a lipgloss, so no matter how hard you shake it will never be fully pigmented, but it does make a difference.
As you can tell on my lips the lipgloss gives me a more fresh and healthy lip look. My lips are not super pigmented and can be quite dull at times and I feel like this lipgloss does make a difference in that. The slight peachy look really enhances the natural colour of my lips and the glossy finish of the lipgloss helps with that too. I also feel like my lips do look more plump with this lipgloss on and I think the main cause of that is the shine that this gloss adds to my lips.
As you can tell the lipgloss isn’t super pigmented on me. I didn’t shake it very well beforehand so that might be one cause, but it’s not something you should use if you want a ton of colour. I don’t think it’s completely transparent though, it definitely adds a peachy look to the lips, but it’s not crazy colour.
In terms of the way it feels on the lips I can be pretty positive. I think that this is a very comfortable lipgloss to wear. It’s more creamy than it is sticky and therefore it’s just like you’re wearing a really glossy lipbalm. Back in the day I wasn’t able to handle lipgloss because I just terribly hated the way it felt on my lips and that problem is solved with this lipgloss. This all does have one down side and that’s that it doesn’t last super long. Most lipglosses don’t, but sometimes if they are really sticky they do a better job at staying in place. The stickiness makes it cling on to the lips better. But well, it’s either one or the other and in this case I do prefer the comfortable feeling of the gloss.
All in all I do like the Lancome Juicy Shaker Lipgloss in the shade Freedom Of Peach. I, first of all, think that this colour is really pretty. It’s a shade that’s going to enhance your natural lip colour and give you a fresh and healthy look. I also like the applicator on this gloss and I think that the packaging is very cute. It’s not the most incredible lipgloss I have ever had, but I do really like wearing it and I think the formula on this is just fine. I won’t jump off mountains for it, but if I’m already down there, I might as well have it. That’s a really terrible metaphor, sorry for that.
Anyway, I think I’ve rambled on for long enough by now. Thank you guys so much for reading today’s review and be sure to let me know what you think of this lipgloss and whether or not you’d buy it!
