Hey y’all! We are on track. . .for the moment. . .I am sure by tomorrow I will be off of it again. Scrambling to make up for missed time and deadlines. Story. Of. My. Life. . .
Already I have posted a skin care review and a hair product review, so let’s go with a lip product review. In all fairness, a lot of these pictures are older and of products that were popular last year but I haven’t had the time or desire to blog. So, I am hoping that blogmas kicks my butt into gear or ignites the spark again because I was so determined to keep this going. . .
For this post we are talking about the Lancome Juicy Shakers. . .
What are they?
According to Sephora’s website: “An addictive lip oil with a super-soft cushion applicator for a wash of color with a hint of shine.” They are addictive because your lips become addicted to the application of oil and get used to having it on them. Not always a good thing but I can tell you my lips looked more moisturized and healthier because of this stuff.
What do they do?
Again according to Sephora’s website: “Juicy Shaker’s bi-phase technology delivers the first pigmented lip oil with two distinct phases. The first phase features a transparent oil for a comfortable, non-sticky shine. Formulated with a blend of five nourishing oils, it treats your lips like a lip balm. Peach kernel oil, a well-known emollient, softens lips while sweet almond oil conditions, apricot oil hydrates, and cranberry oil provides rich antioxidant properties. Muscat rose oil, which is rich in essential fatty acids, helps to soothe your lips. The second phase provides pigment for a touch of color. Shake the bottle like a cocktail shaker to emulsify them together. The cushion applicator enhances application by delivering the perfect amount of non-sticky shine and a sheer tint of color to lips.”
I understood next to nothing according the Sephora but what I do understand is that there are two parts to the shaker; oil and pigment. Shake ’em together (hence the name) and you get a pigmented oil that hydrates and nourishes your lips while adding a tint of color to them. Currently there are 17 different shades. I bought “Freedom of Peach” because y’all know I have a weird obsession with peach. . .peach palette, peach cobbler, peach whiskey, if it’s peach I am all about it.
This is what it looks like when it is mixed together or “shaken” if you must. I probably should have taken a picture of it not shaken but it does not look pretty. Think oil and water separation not appealing. . .
So, it has this weird spongey applicator that absorbs the product and you dab it on your lips to apply it to your lips. It feels incredibly weird to run the spongey thing across your lips. There is a mesh stopper inside the top to prevent all the stuff from seeping out.
I won’t lie, this stuff is a little pricey. $22 is expensive for a lip oil but it’s worth it.
I really HATE that I like this stuff because it is pricey to me. I want to purchase more than thing one but I have to wait until I get a little bit more money because they are good. They do hydrate and nourish. I just wish they were a teensy bit cheaper. What lip oils do you guys recommend?
Until next time. . .
