I’m not sure why but a few reviews I read likened to Juicy Papaya to Peach Parfait sans shimmer and I think that’s pretty misleading. Juicy Papaya is more of a nude muted coral where as Peach Parfait is a golden coral.
Take a look!
I mentioned in an earlier post I did think that these new Lip Butter aren’t a similar consistency as the original formula. They seem sheerer to me, less creamy, and more balm-like. That goes for Juicy Papaya which sports a very balm-y texture with a sheerer color pay off.
Needless to say you probably know me well enough to know that I don’t typically migrate to shades like this one. In the tube it looks like a gorgeous muted coral with an orange undertone however, on lips the shade is a nude mod peach. I don’t really love shades like this as they give my lips a deathly finish. However, I have to say Juicy Papaya is actually quite a nice shade on a whole. The color will be excellent when you want to place less an emphasis on your lips and more boldness on your eyes. It’ll be a beautiful addition to both a bold or subtle eye look.
The color is very sheer but builds to a decent milky peach on lips. The formula does seem to have a knack for accentuating every little nook, cranny, and line in my lips so I suggest a little clear on top for a smoother appearance.
Overall, Juicy Papaya is a surprising color that’s worth taking a look at.
It’s available now at drugstores (I purchased mine at CVS).
