LANCÔME JUICY SHAKER- Product review by Aplus1shimmer.

Lancome Juicy Shaker is game changer. Leaving behind old lip gloss, which is nothing but sticky and annoying most of the time :).

This Lancome juicy shaker stands out different from other lip-gloss because of its bi- phased formula. i.e Nourishing oils and shot of  beautiful pigments. They are sitting separately in the bottle (looking like Cocktail shaker). And like cocktail shaker you have to shake it hard before use, to blend in beautiful color and oils together.

Perfect Lipstick.

“Give a woman the right lipstick and she can conquer the world”- Marilyn Monroe

Make-up is an Art. Every stroke counts. Every color defines you.  Over decades, lip color have been highly used, it the one thing that gives a straight statement.

Many of you have doubt, why does lipstick bleed? , Lip color uneven? , flaky application, lipstick running all over? Oh God! Well, i quick break down and you can easily Master the art of Lipstick application

As I always tell my clients to get perfect lipstick on, keep your lips clean, hydrate and moisturized. “ShimmerHack” – Apply genrous amount of lip balm before starting your make- up.

  1. Prepare Lip– Prepping is the key‼Just like your skin, you need to exfoliate your lips with lip-scrub and generously apply lip balm for healthy looking lips. You may apply lip primer after to make color stay for longer and to stop color bleeding.
  2. Base– Apply left over foundation from your brush, it is important to conceal the uneven lip-tone or discoloration on your lips. This will help in building the color evenly creating a flawless base.


  1. Lip-liner– To achieves a polished well-defined lip, it’s really important to use good and sharp lip pencil. Drawing “X” on upper lip, just below cupid bow following the natural lip-line and two lines creating “V” at the inner corner. And then connect out-lines. Fill in the color with the lip liner.


  1. Lipstick– Choose the lipstick of your choice, take some product on the brush and start apply evenly from the inner corner. Layer your lipstick to intensify the color, or to reach desired color.
  2. Give definition– Quickly run the concealer brush on the edges to clean and correct any mistakes and Voila! your define lips are ready to pout.



Wish you, happy lip!! Post your pictures with lovely pout!!

Natural Look!!

Hi Beautiful Gang! How have you been with all celebration going around.

As we are seeing a new trend of makeup is making a buzz around, well-known as “Makeup but No makeup ” look.

Lets try an achieve 😉 All you need is few things, which is already there in your make-up kit.

  • Shiny Lips: According to my experience, I personally think moisturizing the lips with balm is very essential for fresh and natural appearance. Shade of light or nude colors will help you to achieve the look. If you are girl, who doesn’t like lipstick, then a good shiny gloss is what you need.


  • Natural Eyes: Every eye shape is different, therefore it important to make your eyes stand out. Light coffee coloured eye shadow and brown/black kohl will give you natural look. Always avoid lump in application of your mascara. Shimmerhack: Start from base and also cover the corner of the eye. 11
  • Blended Make up: To achieve foolproof natural look, the only strategy is Blending. Using correct Concealer and Foundation and then blending it in your skin, this will result in natural, fresh and glowing skin. I would try to avoid too much of highlighter. It will never give the result of natural look.

Shimmerhack : If you have full brows, just run brow gel.

I keep this look for my Sunday brunch or coffee date and even some time, when I have to go and visit my extended family.


It’s simple and sophisticated. Let me know, your take on this.

DIY- Lip Scrubber

Lip Scrubber‼ Hot new trend but not something new. Say bye-bye to chapped lips and hi! to beautiful smile.

A change in season means your skin needs care and so does your lips. No one likes chap lips and lipstick application makes it hard. Ask me! I face it all the time with my clients.

Just a lip balm will never solve your problem of chapped lips and what you need is to exfoliate. Yes! you are read that right. Even your lips has layer of dead skin that needs to be removed and moisturised.

Different lips scrubber are available in market with price ranging from moderate to expensive. But I find it easy to make at home, with ingredients usually available in every household.
So what all do you need? 🙂

Well – Brown sugar, Olive oil, essential oil and that’s it! Optionally, you can also add food color like the red color shown in pic.

Take a small bowl and add – 1tbs Brown Sugar, ½  tbs Olive oil, 1/2 drops of essential oil and few drops of color. Mix it together and apply slowly in circular motion on lips. You can treat your lips for few min and wash & pat it dry.






Now apply your lip balm to keep your lip soft and moisturized. I prefer Elizabeth Arden 8-hour cream lip balm, its very good and favourite of most makeup artist. Saves the day 🙂

Benefits of the Ingredient

  1. Brown Sugar– Brown sugar contains glycolic acid (Alpha-hydroxyl acid), which fight against bacteria and keeps the skin vivacious & healthy. It helps to improve on sun damage and skin aging. It is again natural humectant, keeps in moisture locked and guards from destructive toxins.
  1. Olive oilIt adds antioxidant properties and locks the moisture. It is also a rich source of vitamins, including A, D, K and E.
  2. Essential oil– combats aging of the skin and heal it. Lavender and sandalwood oil works best for me! 🙂

All the best‼ And don’t forget to share your experience.
