My take on Lancome Juicy Tubes
So about Lancome juicy tube, I got my first as a present from my masi at the age of 13.once I got over with it I still fondly remembered it as the non-stickiest gloss I had ever used.
Lancome Juicy Tubes was a big tube in pink colour and it had a distinct lovely smell and went on just like water on your lips. They just glided. So smooth and easy. It is ultra wet lip gloss and can offer you a long lasting shine. In 2008 I got the chance and money to buy my own juicy tubes. I went to the Lancome counter somewhere in Florida and got 2 tubes one for myself and one for my best friend. It cost me 18 usd and I got a tote bag free with my net purchase of 36 usd and with the tote bag were 2 lipsticks and an eye shadow.lol yes the freebies made it even more exiting.
So when I used them I found them to be the same. My teenage crush on these Lancome Juicy Tubes was so apt. They were the same not so much sticky shiny babies. The tube applicator was also a plus and the fact that they stayed on.
I opted for a sheer pink colour knowing that I was almost going to top this over my pink routine lipsticks. And for my best friend I also I got another shade of pink I forget the name. She still uses it .
The selection of colours is varied from vibrant and bold to subtle and retiring, This lip gloss surely has a shade for any occasion and look. The tube design is brilliant and makes the gloss easy to apply and the gloss itself offers a perfect texture it’s not too thick yet it’s thick enough to provide enough long lasting colour to your lips.
They also do not settle at the corner of your lips like some others do. They are a perfect connection between a balm and a gloss and are mega conditioning. I would say it’s totally a men’s lip gloss. If you need to kiss after this. This is the thing.lol
These come in 20 colours. Yes OMG! 20. The lighter ones go completely transparent on your lips as you can see in the swatch and the darker ones have colour.
Check out all the colours HERE
They have all you want from browns and nudes to berries and reds to regular pinks. They have them with shimmer or without shimmer. They have them in tiny sizes and in gift sets available over all possible Lancome counters throughout the world.
I would just recommend not to pile too much on at once, you only need a tiny bit to cover your lips for a nice shine and bit of colour. And because you only need a tiny bit, the tube will last you a while before you need to replace it.
It is one of those things you want to have in your bag when you do not want the hassle of taking out a gloss with a wand and applying it. You can apply this without a mirror and just from the tip like a balm. This does not feel gummy on your lips.
The shimmer ones are quite shimmery and the deeper ones are quite pigmented for a gloss. Cherry burst has a really nice tint of pink. And the smell is the best part about this gloss. This is a picture I found online while looking for the pictures for some gift sets for this one and this lady must sure love these glosses, it is evident from the collection she has. It was a must show to you guys:
Having said all this and shared the pictures with you all I will list the pros and cons in short.

Cons of Lancome Juicy Tubes Moulin Rose
- One big one when I did get this did not know. Lancome is not cruelty free. They test on animals. So buy at the risk of your own conscience.
- Here is a good read : 1
The LINKS SAY THAT LANCOME IS NOT CRUELTY FREE AND LOREAL IS PLANING TO GO CRUELTY FREE IN 2013.
- It is slight sticky.I know it is almost impossible to find an absolutely non sticky gloss. If any, please aid.
- The price 18 dollars felt heavy on the pocket then and it still is. Wish it was cheaper.
After all I give it a :-* :-* :-* + 0.5 rating and I am not buying it again because I am more educated now.lol and I will look for nicer cruelty free brands.(or maybe buy it after 2013)lol
P.s let’s all close our eyes for one second and pray for the people in Japan and their families for the tsunami and earthquake that hit Japan yesterday.
Love and life 🙂
