Lancome Juicy Shaker Collistar Extraordnary Duo Lipstick Madina Exact Color Lipstick

3 Lip Products that Are Like Candy for the Eyes

L-R: MADINA Exact Color Lipstick, Collistar Extraordinary Duo Lipstick in 9 Impulsive, Lancôme Juicy Shaker in 352 Wonder Melon

If you follow me on Makeup and Beauty Blog, you may remember that a few weeks ago I wrote a post where I said that, to a certain extent, I’m a makeup collector.

You may also remember that I’m not the type of collector who just keeps products on display, since I like to use everything I have, but more often than not, I buy new things just because I want to add them to my collection.

Usually that happens because I want to have at least one product from a certain brand, or because my collection is lacking a specific shade, or because I like the look of a product…

Case in point: I didn’t need any of the three products I’m sharing with you today, but with their good looks they were able to sneak their way into my shopping basket.


Let’s have a closer look, shall we?

Lancôme Juicy Shaker in 352 Wonder Melon

IMG_3459The Lancôme Juicy Shaker in 352 Wonder Melon is super cute and smells like melon (or maybe watermelon?)

IMG_3460The Lancôme Juicy Shakers have a cushion applicator

Lancome Juicy Shaker 352 Wonder Melon SwatchI believe the Lancôme Juicy Shaker in 352 Wonder Melon is one of the most pigmented in the range, but is still pretty sheer. Its pinky coral tint shows up nicely on my lips because they have no pigmentation

If you’re a beauty lover (and I’m assuming you are, or else… what are you doing here?), you’ve most likely already heard of the Lancôme Juicy Shakers multiple times. In the very unlikely case you haven’t, these pretty miniature shakers contain a bi-phase oil that you need to shake, shake, shake, before applying.

Now, if you’re looking for a long-lasting, pigmented lip gloss, just save your money, as these definitely aren’t. The feeling and longevity on the lips reminds me of those rollerball lip glosses that were oh-so-popular in the 90’s (anyone remembers those?). I’d say the Lancôme Juicy Shaker in 352 Wonder Melon lasts about one hour on me without eating or drinking.

So you’re basically just paying for the cutest, most original packaging and a new makeup experience – which is fine by me, but I understand it may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

MADINA Exact Color Lipstick


Unfortunately the MADINA Exact Color Lipstick is only available in Italy

IMG_3345With its pretty pink tint the MADINA Exact Color Lipstick is perfect for no-makeup makeup days

OK, I basically got the MADINA Exact Color Lipstick just because it looked and smelled like gummy candy, but it turns out that I’m getting a lot of use out of it. It’s one of those lipsticks that are supposed to react with your skin’s pH level to give your lips a custom pink tint.

Since my lips have zero pigmentation, I love to use it when I’m not wearing regular lipstick to make my lips look less corpse-like (but if your lips are very pigmented, it may not show up on you).

Collistar Extraordinary Duo Lipstick in 9 Impulsive


IMG_3357Unfortunately the orange part of the Collistar Extraordinary Duo Lipstick in 9 Impulsive is way sheerer than the fuchsia one

Out of the three, the Collistar Extraordinary Duo Lipstick in 9 Impulsive is definitely the least wearable one. I got it because it looked so fun and different, but I don’t think I’m ever going to use it (so I probably should’ve skipped it).

There are other color combinations in the range that are definitely more wearable, though.  So if you like the idea of ombré lips, I definitely recommend checking those out (10 Divine, for example, features two shades of red).

Do you ever buy makeup products just because they look pretty? If you do, what was the last one you got?

    Usually I don’t, but I will get one of the Juicy Shakers, and as my dislike for sheer lip products is widely known, it is safe to say I will only get it for the looks.

    Thank you for your post, you reassure me about the Lancôme Juicy Shaker, I’m glad I didn’t purchase them (even though they are very tempting) since I truly believe they aren’t pigmented enough for my (already very pigmented) lips!

    I know the Lancome Juicy Shaker are a bit gimmicky, but I still want one – they look fun! I tried some in store before and it was very comfortable to wear! I never seen the Collistar one before, very unique!

    We all get products just because of its pretty look, then end up using it only a few times. I tested juicy shaker and I am happy that I didn’t get it, I don’t need another not long lasting product. Duo lipstick looks cool, it is a great concept however shame that it is not that wearable.

    All the other Juicy Shakers that I saw was extremely sheer but Wonder Melon looks great on you. My lips are pale with almost no pigmentation too so Wonder Melon might look great on me.

    Very pretty colors. Wondering how well the cushion applicator would work for me.

    Out of these 3 I’ve only tried the Juicy Shaker, and I absolutely love it! If you pick one of the darker shades, they do actually leave a stain – mine does, it’s Bohemian Raspberry, and the stain is actually pretty long-lasting while the color shows up really well just after application on my pigmented lips. If you go for one of the lighter shades though, they basically look clear.

    I definitely purchase make-up products for their appearance, all the time! Each one of these products look so cool and innovative. But the only one I’ve really heard about is the Lancôme Juicy Shakers. I think they’re so gorgeous for the Spring/Summer months. It’s disappointing that you said they don’t last very long. But I think in the hotter weather it’s nice to just have light make-up anyway. – Summer Bronze Goddess Tutorial + UPDATE

    All 3 shades look gorgeous on you and umm heck yes I’ve bought things just because they look pretty! The last thing I bought was just a few weeks ago, it’s a soap from Chanel and it’s shaped like a big round pearl. I can honestly say that 99.9% of the attraction was that it looks so cute…I need help 😀
