Thierry Mugler beauty: "The Art of Metamorphosis"

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Were you aware that Thierry Mugler had a beauty line? Because I was not. Not even a little. I hadn’t the tiniest inkling… until yesterday night, right before closing time, when I practically bumped into a Mulger cosmetics display! Thankfully, I had my camera on me, so I took a couple quick shots and made a little swatch sheet of the lip products.

The Plexi Glosses are what made me stop and go back; the finish is very vinyl and very duochrome. Not to mention, the packaging is just so… Thierry, from the shape of the tube to the strange silicone applicator — rather than just being a silicone spatula (which are rare enough as it is nowadays,) it’s a thick silicone spatula with curved edges, like a little canoe paddle. But I have to say; the strangest product was actually the Magma Explosion Glitter Lip Wax, a stiff waxy solid which leaves behind gold leaf flakes on the lips (or skin.)

From left to right: Magma Explosion Glitter Lip Wax; Plexi Glosses in Blue Effect, Pink Effect, and Coral Effect; Rouge Unique in Heart and …Thunder? Not too sure about that last one :/

So, will you be hunting down — or have you already tried out — the Mugler line? I’m definitely intrigued, and will be checking out the line in depth the next time I’m at The Bay. It’s quite pricey, though (the glosses, for instance, are $40US,) so I doubt I’ll be picking anything up!

  1. [...] I had actually forgotten about these completely, but I found a few old swatch photos of the Magma Explosion lip wax (as well as a few Plexi Glosses and Rouge Unique lipsticks) from last year. So, apologies for the quality, but I hope the swatches are helpful!{original post} [...]
