L'Oreal Color Juice Sheer Juicy Lip Gloss Review & Giveaway

012
010 I’m a big fan of Lancome Juicy Tube Lip Gloss: the love the pretty shades and the scrumptious scents! And at first look L’Oreal Color Juice Sheer Juicy Lip Gloss looks identical to the Lancome Juicy Tube! Similar in packaging and some of the available shades and the promise of juicy scents but with a price difference: L’Oreal being more affordable (but this lip gloss is still bit more pricier than most other drugstore lip glosses). So of course I HAD to try them out… I was tempted to pick out bright color tube like “Melon Punch” but I recently bought several bright lip glosses so I went with more neutral/nude color tubes: I bought Butterscotch and Pina Colada.
Pros
  • Affordable (goes on sale and BOGO deals often)
  • Great scent but no taste
  • Shiny but not glittery: glossy finish with subtle shimmers
  • Non-sticky
  • Moisturizing







Cons
  • Most shades look similar when applied
  • Color doesn’t show like it appears in the tube; not very pigmented; sheer
  • Not long lasting; lasts less than an hour
  • The round tip applicator is not very precise

Here are swatches: Butterscotch on top and Pina Colada on bottom.

Overall, I like these lip glosses. They may look and sound like Lancome Juicy Tubes but L’Oreal Juice Color Lip Glosses are not exactly dupes of Lancome Juicy Tubes. The colors are bit more sheer and it’s also not as sticky. The formula is somewhat thick but not sticky as the Lancome Juicy Tube Lip Glosses.
However, Lancome Juicy Tubes have more color selection. Maybe L’Oreal will release more shades in the future… Also, each tube has cute yummy names (like Pina Colada, Melon Punch, and Butterscotch), and I assumed that the tube of “Pina Colada” will smell like pina colada and the “Butterscotch” tube smell like butterscotch, however, both “Pina Colada” and “Butterscotch” have the same undistinguishable fruity scent. It’s a pleasant yummy scent but nothing like pina colada or butterscotch!.
