Lancome Juicy Shakers

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend! A couple months ago, Lancôme released a line of lip oils called Juicy Shakers. The Juicy Shakers are made with “bi-phase technology.” The first phase is a non-sticky, transparent blend of five different oils that help moisturize and condition your lips. The second phase provides pigment for a light wash of color.

I purchased Great-Fruit (sparkling grapefruit) and Cherry Symphony (cherry pop). Great-Fruit had a peachy stain to it, while Cherry Symphony is a bright cherry red.

The Juicy Shakers are very easy to apply! All you do is shake the little tube (I think it looks like a cocktail mixer!), unscrew the cap, and dab the pigment-soaked cushion onto your lips, adding more or less til you reach your desired opacity. My personal favorite is Cherry Symphony. It gave me that just-ate-a-popsicle stain! Great-Fruit smelled amazing, but I didn’t see any noticeable change on my lips.

Although the oils don’t dry down, I found that they last a decent amount of time! I got roughly 3 hours of wear, with no eating and only sipping some water, before I re-applied. They also taste awesome! I’d previously tried the YSL Tint-in-Oils but I was never crazy about them because of the way they tasted. But the Juicy Shakers taste exactly how they smell! To me, the scent isn’t overpowering, but if you’re sensitive to scents you might want to sample these in-store prior to purchasing.

All in all, for $20 a pop, I think the Lancôme Juicy Shakers are excellent lip oils! The packaging is cute and sturdy, the scents & color ranges are great, and they do an awesome job of hydrating your lips. Although I love YSL’s cosmetic line, I think the Juicy Shakers are a much better alternative in terms of cost, shade range, and taste.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lustrous Lip Gloss Set

Hey guys! As you guys know, I am a diehard fan of matte lips. I typically hate wearing lip gloss and avoid it at all costs. However, this season I’ve been seeing a lot of cute looks online that incorporate a glossy lip! So I started wondering… Am I missing out?

I saw that this Lustrous Lip Gloss Set by Anastasia Beverly Hills was on sale at Macy’s for only $20 (original price: $40), so I figured why not give it a go? I have seen many good things about Anastasia’s lip gloss collection and I decided that if I was going to delve into the world of lip glosses, I wanted to start with a range that was highly rated.

The Lustrous Lip Gloss Set contains eight different shades, ranging from sheer shimmers to creamy, vampy shades. Each gloss smells like cake batter and comes with a flat, rounded applicator. The applicator makes it easy to get a smooth line and an even coat, which keeps it from looking goopy on the lips.

Most of the shades in the set applied very well including Black Cherry, which I was skeptical about due to its intense pigmentation. Gilded and Metallic Rose are the two standout shades, in my opinion, as they are both really unique, flattering, and could transform any lip color/lip liner you paired them with. I decided I prefer the shimmer glosses over the solid color creams, but that is just personal preference on my part.

None of these glosses were sticky, feathered, or broke up during wear. This set is a fantastic deal, both at the $20 sale price or at the $40 retail price. I am extremely impressed with the longevity these glosses have and I really want to try more from the ABH range!

Who else is feeling glossy lips this summer? What are some of your favorites? ❤
