A Review of Lancome Juicy Tube Lip Glosses

Lancome Juicy Tube Lip Glosses have made a comeback and they are just as good as they were in the early 2000s! These iconic glosses have not changed one bit…they’re still sticky but you can’t beat their long lasting, hydrating formula. Long lasting and lip gloss usually don’t belong in the same sentence but in this case they really do and it’s awesome.

Lancome Juicy Tube Lip Glosses are a classic in the beauty community up there with ABH Dip Brow and Becca Opal. They were amazing when they came out years ago and they’re still just as good! Their recent comeback is so welcomed and these sticky, ultra-hydrating glosses are just as good as everyone remembers. If you’re looking for a good gloss that’s comfortable, easy to apply, and hydrating that is Juicy Tubes. They’re simple and there aren’t too many lip glosses out there like them.

Lancome Juicy Tubes Original Lip Gloss Review

Lancome Juicy Tubes are sort of like a lip gloss and lip balm hybrid. The squeeze applicator is so easy to apply and can be done without a mirror so they’re perfect for on the go. The gloss formula is thick and sticky but hydrating with the help of Vitamin E to nourish the lips. The Juicy Tubes lasts for a few hours on the lips which is really nice especially for a lip gloss because this is hardly ever the case.

The scent is a fruity, marshmallow smell that lingers a bit so keep that in mind if you’re very sensitive to scents. As the gloss wears off, the sparkles stick to your lips and remain once the gloss has worn off. Not all the formulas have shimmer. Those that do are denoted with sparkle in the shade description while those that don’t are noted as creamy (opaque) and jelly (clear).

The glosses come in 20 different shades ranging from pinks to reds and even purples! The variety of shades is nice but they aren’t very pigmented. Most will look clear on the lips or give a sheer wash of color at most. These glosses wear well alone or pair nicely with lipstick. A good beauty hack is pairing it with a lip liner for an ultra plump, voluminous pout.


  • Uber glossy shine!
  • Hydrating formula! Almost hydrates like a lip balm.
  • Comes in a gorgeous variety of shades! There’s 20 and they come in unique shades like red, purple and hot pink.
  • Easy squeeze applicator makes application a breeze and no mirror is required.
  • Clear, squeeze packaging gives these glosses a vintage vibe that still looks polished and perfectly photo worthy!
  • The clear packaging also allows you to see the shade exactly for what it is.
  • Decently affordable for a high end gloss.
  • Gives the lips a plump look.


  • These glosses are heavy so keep that in mind.
  • Sticky! If you don’t have a tolerance for sticky glosses I don’t think you will enjoy this.
  • The sparkles stick to your lips even after the gloss has worn off.
  • Sweet scent lingers and will not be everyone’s favorite.
  • Not very pigmented – most of the glosses will look clear on the lips.


The Lancome Juicy Tube Lip Glosses come in a ton of shades! They have 20 ranging from creamy red glosses to bright pink shimmers. There is a gloss for everyone and they range from sparkle, creamy and jelly finishes.

I picked up the shade 20 Birthday Confetti which is a clear gloss with lots of shimmer. It looks clear on the lips, (like many of these will) but the shimmer is very noticeable and it’s great for any lip combo. The shade 05 Marshmallow Electro is very similar.

Frequently Asked Questions

What shade should I go for if I want a pop of color?

Well, we know these glosses aren’t the most pigmented. But, if you’re looking for a pop of color definitely try:

  • 04 Miracle – fuschia pink sparkle
  • 10 Framboise Pop – pink, red sparkle
  • 17 Hello Cherry – true red jelly
  • 18 Grape Arcade – purple with sparkle
  • 19 Fig Hit – creamy, deep mauve brown

These are deeper shades and have the best chance of showing up on your lips!

Why does my hair get stuck to this gloss?

Ahh. That’s what Juicy Tubes are known for! It’s a heavier, long lasting formula which is why it’s sticky. Usually when gloss formulas are heavy they become stickier. It just belongs with the territory.

Maybe don’t wear these glosses on a windy day or when you’re going to be outside if the stickiness really bothers you. They do however shine in selfies and for times when you want a glossy, plump pout!

Where is the best place to score a Juicy Tube on sale?

If you’re looking for a good sale incentive or coupon, hands down that has to be Ulta! They consistently send out coupons and post deals on their website so check there. Another one would be Belk.com, they like Ulta have sales and give coupon codes often so definitely check there. Lastly, Macys or Dillards do sales periodically and they have value sets where you can get a few shades in a smaller size for around the price of a full one!

As we get near the holidays, there will surely be some more gift sets with Juicy Tubes and that’s a great way to try a few shades for an affordable price.
