Best Shades of Nude lipstick ...
I am fair skinned with blue eyes and I can't seem to find a nude/pinkish lip gloss that doesn't make me look like I have white lips and am from the show Jersey Shore! Any advise on some shades?
This is a lipstick and not a lip gloss, but http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P21
in Naked, Rush, or Sellout
I hope some of these suggestions help.

Your best bet is to go in store (Sephora or the nearest department store) and try colors for yourself. Look for ones that match your lip color or a slight step up in pink from your natural lip color.
Formulation wise, NARS and YSL are worth trying. The Sephora Collection lip glosses are not too bad either if on a budget or tend to buy colors regularly.
Most products labeled or described as nudes give me the look as you described or dead looking. A lot of the nudes I thought looked good online looked hilariously bad when I finally tried them in the store. Again, the natural lip color tends to change the appearance of a lip product applied.
Best of luck!
i know what you mean and thank you for the laugh (Jersey Shore..) i have fair/light skin with green eyes and don't like looking washed out with nude lip colors either. What has worked for me is Make Up For Ever #1 and i don't remember the corresponding gloss that goes with it. it's a matte finish and has warm under tones so it doesn't give you the "white lip" look or anything like it, just very natural. i just moved and know how it is if you don't live by a Sephora store and there isn't the option to go try things on..
Best of Luck!
