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.
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.
