Lancome Juicy Shaker 'Meli Melon'

Hello all!

I'd like to talk to you guys today about my first ever Lancome product (which I actually won in a giveaway) and probably one of the bigger make up releases in 2016: the Lancome Juicy Shaker. Lisa Eldridge is the Creative Director for Lancome and was involved in the making of this so anything to do with Lisa Eldridge will make me excited! 

The Juicy Shakers are described as fruity lip glosses with a bi phased formula pairing oils and pigments for glossy lips. Sweet almond oil, omega 3 and cranberry oil ensure your lips are juicy and moisturised whilst the coverage is sheer. You can see the oil and the pigment separate in the bottle so remember to shake it up! The packaging is exciting looking as it's similar to a cocktail shaker and the applicator is an amazingly soft and bouncy cushion. I really enjoy how the applicator feels like its bouncing on your lips and it certainly helps to make sure you don't go over the lines of your lips.

The colour I have is 'Meli Melon' which is a soft pink. As you can guess from its name, the Juicy Shaker smells like melon and it is AMAZING. It doesn't smell cheap or synthetic and I can't stop smelling it! As for the colour I am not really a fan of pink so I'd be better off with a red, but despite that it is sheer enough that it doesn't bother me too much. 

I have mostly used this product alone and I like it best when I am having a minimum 'barely there' make up look as it gives me a little something on the lips. I have also tried it over lipstick by applying it on the middle of my lips to make them look juicy which also works well. I don't own any pink lipsticks but I have used it on red lipstick and it still does the trick. It truly does work well either way which makes it quite versatile!

As it is a lip gloss it doesn't last long if you are eating and drinking. However, I find this is to be expected with lip gloss and it doesn't really matter when you can reapply so easily. Something interesting I found about this is that it doesn't leave that 'sticky' feeling lip glosses always leave and instead feels more comfortable on the lips. Yes, it feels slippery, not not sticky! Does that make any sense? It just doesn't give the same feel that I normally come to expect from lip gloss. I think it is the oils in it that helps. 

For someone who doesn't wear pink and doesn't wear lip gloss, this really shocked me. I actually like this and it is definitely not something I usually go for! Sometimes it's good to try something you wouldn't normally may surprise yourself.

The Lancome Juicy Shakers come in 13 shades with one limited edition shade and are £18.00 each.
