Thierry Mugler Rouge Unique Lipstick


Thierry Mugler Dream Rouge Unique Lipstick

Thierry Mugler Rouge Unique Lipstick

Thierry Mugler Dream Rouge Unique Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “chimerical purple, haunting, dark, and translucent.” It’s a berry-grape with subtle ruby red and purple micro-shimmer strewn through the base color, which does have a translucent appearance without being sheer. The color coverage is semi-opaque, and Dream wore five hours on me and left behind a residual stain that wore on for another hour or so. It has a naturally glossy finish, and it’s very moisturizing. The creaminess of the formula enables it to glide on easily, and the color deposits evenly without a big fuss. I couldn’t detect any scent or taste.

Guerlain Bee has a very similar texture but the color is redder. MAC Rebel is brighter and pinker. Milani Sexy Rose is pinker, less berry, and has a frosted finish.

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.
