Lancôme Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick

As a follow-up to their glossy ‘Juicy Shakers‘, Lancôme released a brand new matte version this year, packaged in the same super cute cocktail shaker-inspired tubes.  They feature a water-in-oil emulsion along with Lancôme’s patented Ultra Thin Film technology, which give these lippies a weightless feel plus intense, full-coverage color. They are also formulated with Vitamin E for more comfortable, non-drying wear.

Lancôme Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick Review

Although they’re described as ‘matte liquid lipsticks’, the Lancôme Matte Shakers actually look, feel, and wear like lip stains.  Their water + oil formula is thin and somewhat runny, though very pigmented.  Using the applicator, or even your fingers, they glide on smooth and effortlessly, drenching your lips in rich color and hydration.

Since the formula combines both water and oil, you need to literally shake up the little tube to get everything mixed up first.  From there, you can use the cushion applicator to apply the color in a range of intensities and looks:

  • Go for a light stain by dabbing the cushion applicator onto the lips and then smoothing with your finger (yes, they spread that easily!)
  • Swipe the applicator all over the lips, thoroughly coating them for full coverage
  • Mix and match different shades by layering them together, or using one for the inner lip and one for the outer to create an ombre effect

Here I’m using the shade ‘Pink Power’ and applying full coverage:

The formula of the Lancôme Matte Shaker Liquid Lipsticks can take anywhere from 30 to 90 seconds to completely dry down.  Once set, they create a semi-matte stain that’s completely transfer-proof – it doesn’t come off on glasses or cups, and even lasts through drinking and eating.

On me, a full coverage application of the Lancôme Matte Shaker lasts a good 3-4 hours without budging, and then disappears by about 20%-30% after 6-7 hours (one meal included).  The rest will slowly fade over the course of a day, typically lasting me 10-12 hours total.  My lips will often feel dry 4-5 hours in, but since the formula works as a stain, I can easily apply a lip balm over top without messing up the color.

Overall, if you’re looking for a bright, bold lip stain for summer that’s super long-wearing and fuss-free, I’d definitely recommend trying out these little shakers!
