Let’s be honest, even though we’ve been adulting for years, we’ll never outgrow our love affair with lip gloss. The only difference is that we’re far more discerning now. If the formula is thick and sticky, forget about it. Plus, the gloss needs to smell delicious, without conjuring up thoughts of the Lip Smackers we wore in middle school.

Well, it turns out a lip gloss for your grown-up self does exist, and they come in the form of lip oils! You can imagine our excitement when Lancôme sent us their new Juicy Shaker collection to play with. Featuring a bi-phase formula with a cushion-tip applicator, the 20 addictive shades deliver the perfect shot of color to your lips — without the sticky feel of a typical gloss. The colors range from berry to blue and are infused with a cocktail of pigments and oils like cranberry, peach, almond and apricot, giving a sheer hint of color that you'll want to reapply over and over again! 


It’s safe to say, the Juicy Shakers are far from your average lip product. You can achieve a subtle look by wearing it alone, or layer it over your favorite matte lippie for a brighter burst of color. See how the Makeup.com team wore them before you shop their nationwide release on April 21. 


Give your favorite shade a shake and dab it onto your bare lips for a played-down tint.


Or dab it over your go-to lipstick for extra intensity!


If your current mood is all about bold color payoff, line your lips using invisible liner (for long-lasting wear), followed by a lip crayon or lipstick in your desired shade. Finish off by dabbing on your Juicy Shaker, making for one bright and plump pout!
