It reacts to the chemical composition of your lips. It goes on sheer but your lip color will change before your eyes. Sephora has an excellent return policy so I recommend either trying it on in the store, or buying and returning if you do not like it.
It is very sheer in color to enhance your natural color - it is not an opaque lipstick it is more like a tinted moisturizer that adds a very little color as it warms.

I am asian with light skin but pretty dark pigmented lips and this makes my lips look natural yet give it a slight warmer/pink tone. It gives the snow white effect. Color but not really just healthy and alive!

I have naturally darker/pigmented lips. Since it is a sheer color it won't add a ton of color, but I feel like it slightly brightens my natural color.

I have a medium pink color lip and I saw no difference in color. It turned out looking more like clear gloss on me.

The gloss is actually clear until you put it on. My lips are also pretty pigmented on their own and this brightens the color to a pretty berry shade.
My lips a naturally pigmented and it does not add much MORE color than a tinted lip balm.

Yes, what is so amazing about this is it is different for everyone that wears it. When I wear it, it shows up a pink shade, when my mom wears it (darker skin tone) it shows up almost a natural brown color...We are all sold on it. Me, my mom and all 4 sisters own it!
I kind of have rosy lips, but without balm on they tend to get ashy, and dry easily. I live in a very dry climate, even when it snows. The air is just dry. This smooths out my lip color so they are soft, and protected, kimd of like a blush of color, but if I reapply, two coats, you know blot and reapply, it can be a little darker not much though...Hope this helps.

Its suppossed to enhance your natural lip colour so i guess it would make your lips darker and redder : )
