I love playing with make-up color... on my eyes. I wear all types of bright, crazy shades... bright green, purple, pink, etc. But when it comes to my lips, I'm a little scary. I normally only wear sheer lip gloss. I want to venture into the world of lipstick but I'm not brave enough yet to go for the corals and reds I'm seeing so much of but I've had enough of the nude. Is there an in-between shade I can try?
Sheer formulated lip color may be something to look into. It may not have the bold saturated color of a matte or satin lipstick but enough pop of color to the lips.

Tinted balms is another great choice as well. Subtle hints of color while keeping the lips moisturized. The Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Coral and Passion for example:
Hope that helps.
