Sugar Cosmetics Rose Dawson is the new lip shade from their Matte as Hell Lip Crayon Collection. I have been obsessed with their lip crayons ever since I got my hands on their Holly Go Lightly shade which is one of my favorite lip colors till date. Then I got my hands on Sugar Cosmetics Rose Dawson.

At first glance, Rose Dawson and Holly Go lightly tend to look pretty similar unless you pay attention. While Holly Go Lightly is a peachy hue with the brown tint, Sugar Cosmetics Rose Dawson is a gorgeous hue of pink with undertones of light brown color. They are not at all same and both are worth having in the kitty if you tend to deviate more towards earthy tones with a hint of color like me.
The other shades in this collection are – Scarlet O’Hara (Red), Poison Ivy (Wine), Mary Poppins (Bright Pink) and Holly Go Lightly (light brown). Now I own almost all the shades in this collection except Scarlet O’Hara.
The velvety formula of these lip colors including Rose Dawson is pretty amazing. It initially applies as creamy color and settles finally as a complete matte. The color is pretty, perfect for every day and not so much into the face. However, this shade seemed to have washed me off a little and I observed that a good lip liner is a must to line the lips if you are looking for well-defined lips like me.
It is fairly long lasting (unlike Poison Ivy which tends to stay for a very little time) and comes with a sharpener.
One good thing about getting a sharpener is one can get a fairly pointed tip which helps in defining lips well. Other than that, I often feel sharpening lip crayon is wastage of the product!
After Holly Go Lightly, this is my next favorite shade from Sugar Cosmetics.
