Good golly, where does the time go? I remember when Lancome’s Juicy Tubes were brand spankin’ new, yet now they’re turning 10.
Lancome’s releasing a limited-edition collection of four glosses to celebrate the big one-oh, but they probably could have tweaked the name just a bit…
Are ya ready? Take a deep breath and say it with me. They’re called the Juicy Tubes 100% Natural Origins Ultra Shiny Lip Glosses.
Whew! What a mouthful.
“Hey, girl, have you tried those new Juicy Tubes 100% Natural Origins Ultra Shiny Lip Glosses?” Just rolls off the tongue, LOL!
Luckily, from the color I tried today, they taste damn good. This afternoon I wore Rose Pretty, a sheer reddish pink, and danced around my living room to Biggie’s Juicy… “It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up Magazine!” Could. Not. Stop. Licking. My. Lips.
It makes perfect sense now that I know the deal; Lancome revamped the Juicy Tube formula, making Hungarian honey the main ingredient (WOW!). They also left out all of the preservatives and opted for naturally-derived hydrators and pigments like royal jelly, shea butter and annatto.
My sweet tooth knows no bounds and has a deep and abiding love for honey. If you’ve got a hot date involving a boy and (hopefully) kissing at the end of the night, these might come in handy, wink, wink!
Apart from the new formulation and LE packaging, Rose Pretty’s true to the Juicy Tubes I’ve tried before, with sheer color payoff, a non-sticky texture and pretty good moisture. The finish also shines brighter than the sequins on a drag queen’s dress.
The new tubes descend on Lancome counters and stores next month. If you’re interested, Lancome is taking pre-orders to ship sometime on/around April 1.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. So how was Wednesday? Are you ready to St. Paddy’s night party?
