Lancôme Matte Shaker♥️*

If you can rewind your mind back to last Spring, every blogger (including myself) was going mad for the Lancôme Juicy Shakers, of which I was in love with too (read my review here). Since then, Lancôme have expanded their delightful range even further, introducing a Matte Shaker*. When two beautiful shades arrived at my door, I couldn't have been more excited, not only because of the colours but also the idea that they are a matte formula.

Much like the original shaker range, the packaging is practically identical - the only difference is that the cap is black as opposed to the previous silver. I think that they resemble nail polish bottles purely because of the way the colour of the lipstick is exposed. Personally, I think that they look sleek and smart, not to mention quite cute too! They are an oil-based formula, and people often worry that the colour pay off will be weak, however, it's actually the opposite - they ooze pigmentation.


Yummy Pink*: I was curious to how bright this would be because on my first glance, I thought it was a "Barbie pink" and was wary of it. It turns out to be more subtle than the tube portrays it to be. When first applied, it feels "wet" on the lips, not tacky, but after a few minutes, it begins to dry. By no means does it feel drying at all, which can always be a worry with a matte lip product. I believe that it's a pink that could be worn on a daily basis if toned down, or ideal for wearing out due to being quite bright. Although it's quite a bold shade, it's definitely not too striking or overwhelming to wear, and it's sure to suit a wide range of skin tones - I'm quite pale and it doesn't make me look ghostly white.


As you can see, it's quite a light but pretty pink which is easy to pull off. Here, I have a simple makeup look and I feel that the lip colour just completes the whole look.


Red'y In 5*: Ah, a classic red, what more could I ask for? It has a bright colour pay off, but it is quite hard to apply because it's bold, and the formula is quite thick to an extent. I use a lip liner to make my life easier and sharpen up the edges of my lip. I cannot believe how pigmented it is - honestly, a small amount goes the longest way ever, you'd never guess that it was a liquid lipstick. With some liquid lipsticks, the colour changed once it dries, however, with this one, the colour remains the same, which I'm ever so glad of if I'm honest. It's certainly a striking red, not one of the more subtle shades.


Yes, I have very subtle eye makeup on - that's because I knew I wanted to pair it with a red lip, and this shaker is quite bright and bold. I don't know about you, but I love it.

I love the matte range of these shakers just as much as I loved the original. To compare and contrast them, I do think that the original range is more "oily" as opposed to the matte range, but this may be down to the whole idea of being matte. Both ranges have a wide variety of shades to choose from (the matte has a total of 7), so there's a little something for everyone! Not to mention how lightweight these feel on the lips, you almost forget that you're even wearing anything!

Have you tried the new matte shakers? How did you get on with them?

  8. Oh my goodness, Jasmine, those two colours are so gorgeous on you! I am definitely more of a red lip girl, any time of the year so I am leaning towards Red'y In 5 but both shades are so cute <3 I love how pigmented they are & they look moisturizing. I might need to try the matte shakers now ;)
