What’s Up Guys! Here’s a nice alternative to the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick or the Dior Lip Tattoo with a slightly different twist or more like a shake. The Lancome Matte Shaker (0.20 oz: $22) is a lightweight and highly pigmented liquid lipstick that’s unique and entirely different from most liquid lipsticks. It’s cute and it applies using a cushion applicator that acts like a sponge to absorb the product. Kinda like its sibling, the Lancome Juicy Shaker. It’s innovative and it’s pretty interesting.
To apply, all you have to do is shake the product and swipe the cushiony and spongy applicator on your lips. Easy peasy, though I find that the applicator doesn’t always allow for a precise application. Still, it’s pretty doable. There’s not much scent on the formula, only a slight hint of something fresh and something floral, but not soapy.
This Lancome Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick feels very thin and super lightweight like there’s almost nothing on your lips. It more of a lip stain like the Dior Lip Tattoo (reviewed HERE) and I think the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet (reviewed HERE) is slightly creamier than this. Yet they all share that same highly pigmented formula. The thing I find with this is that it’s kinda drying unlike the others and it tends to settle into the very fine lines of the lips, but it’s not too bad.
Once this settles, the effect is satiny and it looks pretty cute. It’s also very long lasting and really staining. On the other hand, I noticed that I don’t seem to like the range of shades that were released. First, there’s not a lot of them. Second, the shades are more on the bright or neon-ish side. What’s even more surprising is that the colors on the tubes don’t really seem to match well on the lips. The 272 Energy in Peach shade that I tried in Sephora looked very different on the bottle and on the arm swatch, so I just skipped on that.
270 Beige Vintage – Beige Nude. It’s a pretty shade, but not so vintage-looking on my lips. It’s a little too bright once applied, almost glowy like a neon coral, but once it settles, it looks more muted, yet still not so nude of a beige.
374 Kiss Me Cherie – Deep Brick Red. Pretty shade that looks more like a slightly bright red-pink on me, even though it looks like a rich bright red on the tube. Kinda reminds me of Dior Lip Tattoo in Natural Berry shade, only a lot brighter.
Overall, I find this Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick from Lancome to be a really good alternative to the Dior Lip Tattoo and Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet. It’s lightweight, well-pigmented, and it doesn’t transfer once it settles on the lips. It may take a few minutes for it to dry down, just like the Lip Tattoo and even the Lip Magnet, but this won’t smudge once it’s settled. Plus, the Matte Shaker is also more affordable and has a unique and cute packaging. The cushion applicator is not so bad either.
