I have medium to dark skin. full lips and I would like a different lip color that would compliment my skin tone. im not very bold with color like oranges. I frequently use brick colored lipstick. what do you suggest
Erm, how different are we talking here? 'Cause I've got green and blue suggestions but most people aren't quite that different. But I'm a 2Y12 in the color IQ systems and these are some colors I like to use.

The Bare Minerals Feel the Love lipstick, which I can find in JCP Sephora's but not big Sephora's is also pretty. MAC Pink Plaid, MAC Violetta [purple], MAC Viva Glam V [which i do have a picture of I just have to resize it], ad there are lots of others but those are all I can think of right now.
I suggest getting a set with smaller sizes of multiple sizes so you can try out a variety of shades without the commitment of purchasing a full size lipstick. This will give you a better idea of the shades that you are most comfortable wearing.
One of my favorite sets for this is the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar All-Star Mini x 12 Set. This set includes 12 beautiful shades - everything from neutral pinks and peaches to more bold reds! A great thing about the lip tars is that they can be mixed together to create new shades!
