Lipstick colours? Help!

How do you choose a lip colour, that suits you?

Is there any app that lets me switch our colours from popular brands?

I wear a fair with cool undertones foundation/concealer, naturally red hair but it's dyed pink right now.

I would like 1 soft pink, 1 bright red and a darker something (plum maybe but unsure)

@LittleRed1989 Some company websites have virtual try-ons but they don’t tell the whole story. It’s hard to capture things like matte vs gloss finishes or different lighting conditions. I also find the feel of the formula on my skin is an important deciding factor, so I like to swatch in person whenever possible.


If you don’t live near a Sephora but want to shop there anyway for specific brands, you can find colours/shades you like at the drugstore and search for colour dupes online. Temptalia has a huge database of shade comparisons to help you narrow down your choices.

@LittleRed1989 @I think it helps to swatch in store rather than choose from online images.
