Welcome to Autumn! It's taking a while to get cool, but it's certainly been drier in the last couple of months. Cue my lips flaking, drying out and not retaining any colour in a nice way. Is it just me, or do other people suffer from really dry lips?
Now, way back when, I was absolutely obsessed with the Lancome Juicy Tubes, and had about 10 to my name, and that may even be an underestimation. So, imagine my delight when I heard that Lancome was coming out with something a little different, and a lot juicier! Please welcome the new member of the Lancome family - the Juicy Shaker! This innovative new lippie promises to both add colour to your lips, and moisturise them with their lip care oils.
This little cutie comes shaped like a cocktail shaker, and because it has a biphasic formula (ie made up of oils and pigment), it does look separated, but here's where the fun comes in! To ensure that you get a mix of colour and oils, all you have to do is shake, shake, shake it! Unscrew the cap, then start gliding it all over the lips!
The sponge applicator is so cute and seriously makes me feel like I'm biting into a berry every time I use it. This smells kinda fruity, and that, combined with the texture of the firm sponge, is like I'm spreading a bit of strawberry over my lips as I use it. It sounds weird, but I totally love it!
This comes in 14 different shades, and while Apri-Cute, which is pictured here, looks relatively intimidating, being so vibrant in the bottle, it's quite pretty on, adding a hint of brightness to my lips. I've been using this for a bit of colour on those dry, cool mornings, and it's been divine. For only $34, you can pick one up this May. In fact, I may be picking a few other colours up myself! If you're tempted, you can even get two for $62, or three for $90!
This new arrival is definitely what my lips need as the weather cools down and this has become a permanent resident in my handbag since it landed in my life. Run, don't walk, to the Lancome counter, and I'll meet you there!
