Lancome Natural Juicy Tubes by Yayo Kusama Review, Swatches, Photos

Lancome has a new range of Natural Juicy Tubes out for Summer which they collaborated on with Japan’s most famous living artist, Yayoi Kusama (or as I call her, the Asian Tarina Tarantino. It’s the wigs…).

Yayoi is known for her whimsical creations particularly her use of polka dots in many of her works. Sadly, the new Juicy Tubes lack all the polka dot love that she normally rains on her creatives pieces but she still gives us a healthy dose of playful dots and whimsical butterflies that decorate each tube.

Let’s take a look!

The six new colors have a sheer finish with a high glossy finish. Juicy Tube fans will be very familiar with the quality, finish, and overall performance of this gloss however if you’ve never tried them I will say they are some of the best glosses Lancome puts out as far as I am concerned.

The formula has a certain thickness that glides easily onto lips and leaves behind a hint of tint with a beautifully shiny finish. They have a mix of honey and shea butter to keep lips hydrated. The formula is made of honey as the main ingredient and the formula, flavors, and pigments are 100% natural origins and preservative free. Lancome didn’t forsake anything to create the more natural formula and they still remain just as great as the original collection although a ickle heavier texture wise.

Each of the new shades is flavored like its name sake. I tried out Crazy Raspberry which is a tart, juicy raspberry tasting gloss with a hint of rose tint and Happy Honey which thankfully has a very soothing honey taste that lacks floral notes which I’m not keen on.

Other shades include Hazelnut Cacao, Apricot, Grapefruit, and Vanilla.

If you’re a lover of Lancome Juicy Fruits and have been looking for a fresher, natural formula to use on lips these Natural Juicy Tubes are sure to please plus the collectible Yayo Kusama print make them a must for fans of Asian pop art.

The glosses will be available from April to May at Nordstrom and online starting in June at for $15 each.

Are they on your wish list?

    The colors are really pretty and I adore Lancome glosses. Unfortunately, my intense phobia of butterflies and moths prevents me from buying these.
