Help me pick a color, please?

I want to find an everyday lipstick.  I like it to look natural (my lips but better), however, I want to go a little more pink than nude.  In the past I always end up on the safe side where it doesn't look like lipstick.  I am light complexion with yellow undertones.  I have dark hair and eyes, and I always wear natural looking makeup/eyes.  

 

Here are three that I've narrowed it down to.  But if you have another option I'd love to hear it.

Thank goodness I place an order when I did.  I really wanted the Fig from Bite Beauty and now it's out of stock.  I hope that is just a temporary thing.

So I was looking at the sales this morning and saw the Bite Beauty Discovery Set there for $20.  It has five colors, including Fig which I wanted.  I know they are small, but I think this is a great way for me to try a few colors.

I wanted to try out that set but it seems to be sold out! If you know how to get another set let us know please!

That is a super bummer.  I was surprised when I saw it yesterday morning in the sale section because I thought it was all gone.  I guess I was lucky.

Ooh, I am tempted by this set too. I'm very timid when it comes to lipstick, but I'd like to work on that :smileyhappy: Right now, I only own like 4 lipsticks, and the only thing I touch is Dior Addict Lip Glow.

I love the packaging for pinkadelic! So cute! I like Bobbi Browns Uber Pink, it's a really wearable pink and the formula is creamy and easy to throw on! And it's neutral so you don't have to worry about it making your teeth appear yellow, which yellow based pinks tend to do in my experience.

I love Uber Pink too!  It looks fabulous under their crystal gloss!

I love the Nars Niagara it's not the lips but better color I would also go with the Nars Dolce Vita for the natural look. But I know after seeing the Nars Niagara my lips need this!

Re: Help me pick a color, please?

Thanks to all of you for the opinions.  I've added a few new shades to my loves, and hope to be adding some to an order soon.

Re: Help me pick a color, please?

ok this thread has me drooling over all the pretty lipstick colors.  and I really badly wanted to buy YSL Corail Aquatique when I swatched it a few weeks ago so thanks to Spyski it's going into my wishlist now :smileyhappy:

Re: Help me pick a color, please?

It's def. a must have "make your lips better" color! I'm drooling over the NARS Niagara like all the others since I just googled it. I've never actually owned any NARS lipsticks yet, maybe I should give it a try! *clicks love button*
