Sugar Matte as Hell Crayon Lipstick in Rose Dawson

Saturday, April 07, 2018


This colour has to be my current fixation!




I think I accidentally ordered Rose Dawson instead of Holly Golightly. Holly is one of my favourite literary characters. I don't even remember who I had on my mind; Holly or Rose!
I had this crayon for quite sometime now but the colour was not my preference then. It turned out brighter than I anticipated. But now, I have been wearing this everyday! And the fact that it makes my grey contacts look blue. As funny as it may seem. And it is summer, I always turn towards my brights. *wink*



I contacted Sugar Cosmetics for their official statement with regards to being Cruelty-free. Here's what they replied.

Certified CF?  And I am not sure how I feel about it.

Colour

Look at that bullet, it looks mauve-brown-pink, quite subdued and subtle. And when swatched, it turned out quite bright. The undertone is neutral and it does look warm outdoors and cool indoors. On my neutral undertone, it shifts with the light I am in. If the colour naming resembles Kate Winselet's Lipstick in Titanic, it is nowhere close to being a brown that leans orange like her ginger hair.

Texture

This sets into powder-matte finish and is quite drying. Doubtlessly, this one goes well on well-prepped and hydrated lips. For desert dry lips, a heavy duty balm underneath will save them. For the kind of restless talker I am, this one moves quite a lot and then mysteriously disappears, where? I have no clue. Maybe, the heavy lip balm underneath eats it :D

Longevity

Quite average. I've been wearing this to work and I believe in keeping myself hydrated. It does transfer a lot on drinking. No wonder, the mouth of my water bottles have lipstick stains/residue. Like all the lipsticks, I blot this too and reapply to prolong the stay. And It does settle into the lines which is only thing i dislike about powder mattes.

Captured indoors. Blotted one million times!

I think I will stick to this combination till I have to switch back to clear contacts.

  1. The colour is bright for sure but it suited you so well. The grey contacts are amazing. Where did you get them. I want to try them too :) May be Hazel contacts.
    I have been seeing lot of bloggers talking about the Sugar Cosmetics. I got them here via lipmonthly, frankly, not impressed. Too dry for my already super dry lips.

  2. Oh I love this colour, perfect for the spring. I'm not too keen on matte finish as I find them very drying even with a bit of lip balm underneath. I've not heard of Sugar Cosmetics. How much is the crayon?
