Thierry Mugler Feeling Rouge Unique Lipstick

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.

If you have found a lot of the popular fuchsia pink shades too bright for you, Feeling might be on that fine line of bright and punchy and wearable. It's not tame, but it's not neon.

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.

This is a great color for fall, because it's dark and vampy, but the translucent appearance of the color keeps it from being overwhelmingly dark. I wish their distribution was larger, because online-only shopping can be frustrating!
