Crazy as it may seem, I’ve yet to try the original Juicy Shakers. When the new Lancôme Matte Shaker ($22 US/$29 CAD) arrived I was very excited to try it and completely surprised and delighted by the results.
I am not a matte lip product fan in general. What I didn’t expect was for these Matte High Pigment Liquid Lipcolours to actually be more of a lip stain than a matte liquid lip colour. They have a thin, watery consistency (I can’t compare to the Juicy Shakers but I’ll assume they share this quality) but with intense colour payoff. Full and even colour coverage is easily achieved. Once these set they do not go anywhere. They are locked in yet with a light and completely undetectable feel on the lips. No stickiness or tackiness. No transfer. Goodness I am in HEAVEN! They aren’t a flat matte either. Rather they don’t offer an shimmer or gloss, just a natural finish on the lips. They leave a impactful stain on the lips so even if you try to remove these you will still have a considerable amount of colour on your lips. These are one of the longest lasting lip products I’ve tried, while still remaining completely comfortable.
The only drawback comes from the absolutely adorable shaker packaging. So cute, but the cushion applicator is rather large making it a little tricky to achieve a precise application.
These Matte Shakers may not have Juicy in the name but the colours are just that. Vibrant, juicy, and so perfect for summer. When I first saw the tubes and the Matte name I was expecting bold and dark matte lipsticks but these are fresh and beautiful. I’m a little bit obsessed. Now I see what all the fuss has been about! They are also really fun to mix and match as the formula resists migration, mixing, and transfer. Pink Power on the outer portion of the lips with Magic Orange in the centre creates a gorgeous summer ombre effect. Like you’ve been going to town on the orange and cherry popsicles. 😉
Have you tried these out? I am in love! I don’t even think I’d want to bother trying the Juicy Shakers out now because these are just so perfect.
