I follow Lancome’s international account so when I saw the Matte Shaker I freaked out. I LOVE the original Juicy Shakers, the lip oils are like high-end and grown-up lip balms that keep your lips moisturised and give you colour. But I’m not here to talk about why I liked that, if you want to know about the Juicy Shaker, then go ahead and read that post. Today we’ll be chatting about the new addition to Lancome’s line, the Matte Shaker. The Matte Shaker is an ultra-thin, hydrating matte lipstick still packed in the cute Juicy Shaker bottle. I’ve said it over and over again, Lancome keeps innovating and most of their innovations have been winners.
I received two shades to try, 374 Kiss Me Cherie and 378 Pink Power. Kiss Me Cherie is a warm red and Pink Power is a bright, almost fuchsia shade of pink. These have the original Juicy Shaker applicator and it makes application a quick, easy task especially if you’re not used to wand or brush applicators. Beginners will love this. Actually, these Matte Shakers are fantastic for almost everyone, especially if you have a fear of applying makeup or the dryness that comes with lipstick. These won’t cause any issues. They’re simple and easy to use to create perfect looking lips. I’ve swatched them for you so you can get an idea of how they look below.
The Lancome Matte Shaker dries to a matte finish and leaves a stain on your lips after wearing it. They do not last the whole day at this intensity, but I like the stain they leave. It reminds me of the stain that’s really popular in Asia right now, which is a flush of product instead of a painted-on lip.
You can get these babies everywhere that Lancome retails at an RSP of R315.
