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!!

Product Review- LO’real Powder Lipstick

Hey Friends..

Summer is here‼ Heat and Sweat.. oohhuu .. Going out with make-up is a challenge, especially with lipstick.  Not too glossy! Not too dry! Then what should you wear?

Well… “Matte” is back in trend. Perfect for work, hangout or even on brunch date! So here is my take on L’Oreal Infallible Matte Fx Lipstick.


It was launched in January, but I feel it has better use in summer. After using it for couple of weeks, I am all set to stamp as my favourite. Easy application, light on lips

And comes in six color shades for every skin tone.

It is gel to powder product, and therefore there are no loose pigments on your lips. Instead it is creamy and moisturizing, perfect for daily wearable with matte effect.

Long wearable, no smudging and sponge on the stick helps to build the color. It would be really good, if you apply lip primer before.

Pro tip: You can even use it to create lip.

First blog post

After successfully completing my certificated Makeup course from Copenhagen Denmark, I was enjoying doing makeup and sharing tips with my clients. But, one day as I was sipping coffee (I just love coffee), I realised why not share all the pro tips and my experience with others.Though I am not professional blog writer but I will try to write what my mind speaks. I hope to have fun writing blogs and hopefully you will like what I write and keep me motivated for writing more 🙂
