Fifteen years ago, Lancome's Juicy Tubes swept lips around the globe and still to this day hold court as a cult classic. Today, Lancome is looking to shake things up (literally!) with their latest Juicy Shaker lip collection. Yes, it's back! And — in my humble opinion — better than ever.
But that's not the only product that's got the beauty industry buzzing and the Internet, well, breaking. I've rounded up my favorite trending products that'll have you rushing to your local makeup department.
Stuff We Love
Lancome's Juicy Shaker collection is definitely at the top of our wishlist as we head into summer. A miniature cocktail shaker serves to mix nourishing oils with pigment swirling about for a fun shot of color. The application process itself merits cocktail-worthy chatter, so reapply often ($21, lancome-usa.com).
In multi-tasking makeup news, Clinique's new dual-sided Sweet Pots offer up a sugar-smoothing scrub on one side and a tinted moisturizing balm on the other. The macaroon inspired design is available in six flavors, including Red Velvet and Candied Cassis ($19.50, clinique.com).
Last but not least, the matte lip craze is still holding strong. And for those who are keeping track, Kylie Jenner's infamous lip kits are still sold out! If you're on the hunt for a matte lip product for yourself (or perhaps a teen or tween in your life), check out Make Beauty's Super Matte Lip Pencil. It can be applied solo, on top of glossy lipstick (to reduce shine), or even on top of matte lip color for an even flatter matte finish. If that doesn't satisfy your need for matte lip color, I don't know what will ($23, makebeauty.com).
A homemade rainbow highlighter nearly broke the internet two weeks ago (and it's still being discussed on online forums today). The frenzy over Bitter Lace Beauty's Prism Rainbow Highlighter caused its Etsy seller to close up shop after watching page traffic increase from 6,000 visits to 600,000. When the restock of 500 units sold out within seconds, the multi-colored shimmer appeared on eBay for over $1,000.
Yes, a thousand.
Thank me later, but there are many alternatives available (including pastel eyeshadows and DIY youtube videos). For those looking for an almost exact dupe, Etsy seller Ciaobellaxoxo1 sells both a bright and pastel rainbow shimmer ($15-20, Etsy.com), while Looxi Beauty has an assortment of unique unicorn-worthy shades. For ladies looking to be a bit more subtle, Laura Geller's Filter Finish Setting Powder provides a softer pearlized iridescent glow ($32, LauraGeller.com).
Also, PSA for hardcore makeup buffs: Get ready to line up on May 10th for the release of Skin Fetish 003, a backstage beauty kit from iconic makeup artist Pat McGrath. With incandescent gel pigment, a buffer brush and a dual-ended shimmer stick, two shades of the limited edition trio have everything you need to get a celebrity-worthy strobing effect ($72, sephora.com).
If you don't snag one of her trios, you can head to the drugstore for an on-trend, illuminated look. Flower Beauty's Glisten Up Highlighter Chubby ($9.98, Walmart.com) will give your cheeks radiant glow, while e.l.f. cosmetics offers up a variety of options from baked highlighters to shimmer sticks to glistening pearls for just $1.
