Thierry Mugler Rouge Unique Lipstick
Thierry Mugler Feeling Rouge Unique Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “fruity pink with light transparency.” It’s more than just plain ol’ pink. At first glance, this seemed like a color that would be easy to describe, but I found it more difficult when I went to do so! It’s a lightened coral-pink-red with gold and pink micro-shimmer and a semi-frosted sheen. It almost looks coral, but then it seems dominated by pink, and then it’s darker than just pink. The color coverage is semi-opaque, and the color deposited fairly evenly across the lips without much effort.
Feeling wore four and half hours on me, but unlike Dream, it did not leave behind a stain (which is fine, but just worth noting). The formula on this was creamy but had less slip compared to Dream (which also had a glossier finish and more translucence in the overall color). This shade was moisturizing, though, and I didn’t detect any scent or taste. The creaminess of the formula still allowed for easy application.
Bobbi Brown Raspberry Pink is a little redder but similar. Chanel Taffeta Rose and Elizabeth Arden Tulip are similar but brighter. MAC Naughty You is somewhat similar in base color but the lack of oapcity and glitter makes them look rather different.
It’s packaged in a slim metal tube that’s shiny, so while it does hold fingerprints, the reflective surface makes it harder to see them unless you look closely. The lipstick itself is shaped like a faceted jewel, which is fun to look at, but it doesn’t affect application in any way. It has enough heft that it doesn’t feel cheap, but it’s still lightweight overall and travel-friendly.
