LONG LASTING LIPS: Lancôme Matte Shaker

Mix up your normal make up routine and shake your way to a vibrant lip colour. Written by Rachel Douglass.

Lancôme has become the brain child of your new favourite way to apply lip gloss. Previously releasing their Juicy Shaker, matte shades have now been added to the collection of these fun, long lasting lipsticks. Infused with vitamin E and omega 3, the ‘lip oil’ not only looks good but is healthy for your lips.

I gave the Matte Shaker, in the shade 189 Red’Y In 5, the ultimate test, wearing it all day through to the night, using the Crayon Contour Lip Liner to add shape. The application is done by a sponge-like material which soaks up the right amount of pigment once shaken. It smoothly covers the lip, leaving a strong colour and a weightless feel. Despite taking a while to dry, the colour remained vibrant through the day only needing to be topped up a little towards the evening, with it cracking slightly.

These Matte Shakers - they come in 7 colors -  are the ultimate accessory for your purse and the release of the beautiful spring colours range provides light shades to suit the upcoming season. For seven diffent looks.
