#FrenchFriday : Lancome Juicy Shaker, a Story in Black and White

Today's #FrenchFriday post is going to be short and sweet - very sweet indeed - as I just want to show you my new toys: two new Juicy Shakers by Lancôme, in black Liquorisky and white Snow-Tilly. Let's take a look!

If you've been here before you probably know that I love the Juicy Shakers, Lancôme's cute mini cocktail shakers that contain a mix of lip oil and pigment. I've reviewed the Shakers shortly after their first release (see my post here) but here's why I'm so fond of them in a few words: they're so darn adorable, they're completely unique, the velvety applicator is delightful, the oil is light as air and gives a nice shine, and they're very comfortable. But mostly, they're just really fun. They're a great way to make my beauty routine more entertaining, and as you can see they inspired me to play with candy!




So when Lancôme released a handful of new shades a couple months ago, I was pretty excited! The new launch included a neon green, gold, yellow, and some bright pinks, but I decided to pick up the more unique shades: the white and the black.




Liquorisky is not really black, it's made of anthracite and silver sparkles suspended in oil with a subtle black tint. It's very pretty in its little shaker, with a kind of starry night effect. It's very sheer on the lips, but it will darken their natural color a little bit (or darken another lip product that you wear underneath) with a hint of grey, while the sparkles and shiny finish make the lips look ultra-glossy. The grey tint on my naturally rosy lips translates into a touch of berry. The scent is sweet but has a bit of spicy licorice to it as well. And the shade name brings the liquor back into these cocktail shakers!




Snow-Tilly consists of white pearl and pink micro-shimmer floating in clear oil. The shimmer is much finer than Liquorisky's sparkles, and creates a subtle pink shift. Snow-Tilly is even sheerer than the other one, coating the lips with a shiny, glossy finish and making them look just a little bit rosy because of the pink pearl. To me this one smells like vanilla cake frosting!

Overall

Both shades are very pleasant to wear on their own for simple shiny lips, or as a topper over lipsticks to add a little shimmery twist. Are they products you couldn't live without? Nope. But if cute and fun objects put a smile on your face, I bet you'd love them too!
