Thierry Mugler Teint Onctueux

RRP: €41,70 for 30ml
# of shades available: 6

--What does the promo say?--
"Ultra comfortable, Thierry Mugler's Teint Onctueux glides onto your skin thanks to its unrivalled mousse texture. With the sensation of whipped cream, and a perfect matte finish, it combines the pleasure of application with silky complexion in one move."

A chunky, angular glass pot that fits in very well with Mugler's general concept. Might be a bit heavy to travel with, though.

Using your preferred tool of application (brush, fingers or sponge), gently stroke onto face and blend. No problems here.

It certainly fulfills the brief; it is a lovely, light mousse. However, I wouldn't call it 'unique', as they do in their publicity material - there are plenty of mousse foundations on the market, albeit with varying degrees of quality.

I didn't find that this detracted from my blemishes too well, even though it blended nicely. It provided a good base, anyway, and you could go without powder easily if you wanted to.

--How does your skin feel afterwards?--
Certainly very smooth and moisturised, but this can also be found in other mousse foundations (and indeed even in non-mousse foundations).

It doesn't slide off or rub off throughout the day, and keeps face shine-free. Good times.

--Value for money--
Far far too expensive for what is essentially an upmarket version of Max Factor's Colour Adapt - I personally couldn't see any difference and advise you to save a few bob and buy that instead.
