Posts in Awakening Of Love Collection

For all you adoring Lancôme Juicy Tubes fans, you are in for a special treat. Right now, like today, like this minute … the all new and very limited edition Juicy Tubes by Yayoi Kusama are going on sale in Australia.

For a while now I have had my eye on the first collection of Yayoi Kusama Juicy Tubes. For some reason I haven’t been able to find these in Australia but maybe I didn’t look hard enough. Not to worry though because now there is a brand new collection and from the look and sound of it, these ones are going to be kick ass! For those of you who aren’t aware of Yayoi Kusama, don’t worry. I didn’t until I found out about her collaboration with Lancôme.

The new collection contains 6 glosses that are not only unique in colour, but also in fragrance. Yes, rumour has it that Yayoi actually came up with fragrances to match each of her creations. I think that is preeeeeeetty cool. Before I tell you what I think about No. 12 Exotic Bomb, let’s learn a bit more about the collection.

Standard Lancôme packaging on the outside. Fun on the inside!

The Collection

Today, reflecting the mood of her current artwork, Yayoi Kusama is remodelling Juicy Tubes around the theme of love. She offers Lancôme’s pop-princess gloss three unique designs that are as poetic as the most sincere promises of eternal love.

With dazzling shine, Juicy Tubes Awakening of Love is empowered by a prodigious texture that combines two new generation components. The first is a transparent “mirror oil”, which is more fluid and less sticky than traditional glosses. The second is a “Bouncy polymer”, encapsulated in the formula within chains of beads that are released on application to dress lips with a smooth, even, glossy finish. Juicy Tubes Awakening of Love’s texture plays with light and redefines the notion of mirror shine.

Fruity, energising shades

10 Crazy Yuzu, with radiant notes of yuzu, and boosted with a hint of basil.
11 Vigorous Fruit, where the raspberry fragrance is lifted by a touch of mint.
12 Exotic Bomb, whose gentle strawberry aroma is interlaced with pink peppercorn.

Soothing, floral shades

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
