Lip Color Suggestions

OK - I'm ready to take the plunge and explore some new lip colors.  I usually stick to lip balm, but I want to change it up.  I have fair skin, dark blonde hair and blue eyes, so dark colors don't work well for me.  Anyone have some good suggestions for lighter pinks and nude colors?  What brands have great staying power, but still are moisturizing?  Thanks beauties!

I just thought of another great pick - Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in Naked. The description states that it is "nude-pink", and it's exactly what is says. It has sheer, satin finish, and also very moisturizing.

You could experiment with some sheer colors like in the YSL Sheer Candy line, they're super moisturizing and more pigmented than tinted lip balm, but not so drastic looking on fair skin. I love the Sweet Fig when I want a dressed down effortless red lip that I don't have to worry about applying overly carefully.

That might be a drastic step if you're not used to lip color, but there are colors you might be more comfortable with, like Lush Coconut or Tasty Raspberry

I'm obsessed with light pink lipsticks and I have a ton of them! My most recent purchase was the Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in "Obsessed."

I also love Bite Beauty's Matte Lip Pencil in "Velvet" (I've posted about this pencil in at least five different forums already. I'm just so in love with it!!)

Nars "Roman Holiday" is a really pretty color, kind of similar to the UD one. I've swatched it a million times but haven't purchased it yet.

(The color looks a little different online. It's super pretty in person!)

That pencil looks awesome.  I checked into the Bite Beauty set of those.  Are they a full coverage type of lipstick or just a liner.  Looks full.  Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: Lip Color Suggestions

I second everything that @beautylovingirl had suggested (I personally prefer Bobbi Brown lipstick in Pale Mauve rather than Washed Seashell though). One more option is Dior Addict in #353 Blush. It is a little more vibrant pink, but still works perfectly as an everyday color. I died my hair brown recently, but I wore it even back when my hair was dirty blonde color - it looked great. And it glides on super smooth and is very moisturizing.Dior Addict 353.jpg
