The Next Big Thing: Lancôme Matte Shaker

In this product review article, we share on the best and latest in beauty so that you know exactly what to expect from the newest products on the shelves. For this one, we reviewed the new Lancôme Matte Shaker and Ultra-Pigmented Matte Liquid Lipstick.

What does it do?

Lancôme is renowned for its classic lip shakers. This year the saga continues with the release of the Matte Shaker, which celebrates lipstick in bold, bright, intense colors. The product’s viscous emulsion, along with its new cushion applicator,
allows for a more precise application, without too much fuss.

What can you expect?

Start by shaking the bottle to soak the cone-shaped cushion applicator, before twisting the lid open. Once opened, the applicator will have absorbed enough product to cover your lips entirely. From there, give the product a few minutes to settle before the matte effect appears.

Key ingredients

The Matte Shaker has achieved its fine, yet vibrant emulsion through Ultra Thin Film (UTF) technology. Although UTF
technology is used mainly in electronics, it’s starting to be adapted and used in the beauty industry.

The science behind Lancôme

From a structural point of view, the formula is saturated with pigments and contains a large proportion of volatile ingredients,  including water. These evaporate as soon as the product is applied, leaving only what is needed: the pigments and polymers. And therein lies the secret of its light feel on your lips.

How do you use it?

The Matte Shaker creates a bold, pigment-saturated, yet comfortable film over your lips. It dries in a few minutes and transforms into a matte finish. The formula is long-lasting and creates the texture of a second skin, which means you can apply it and forget about it for a few hours.

Fast fact:

Lancôme launched its “Be mad. Be matte.” campaign to celebrate the matte lip trend that has taken the beauty industry by storm. Its mission is get you to mix and match the colors from its Matte Shaker range for one complete, statement lip look.
