I strongly recommend you find a store with testers for those colors. I found the pictures not very helpful. I originally bought Barcelona but had to return it because it was just a little too orange. (Later got Havana and love it.) Also don't forget that Sephora has hassle-free returns. So if you can't test it before just guess and keep your receipt and packaging.

I have blonde hair, green eyes and fair skin and I have 3 shades that I love. Berlin seems to be a nude w/ a slight pinky brownish undertone, Milan is also a nude, but with a peach tone and my actual favortie is Brooklyn which I'd consider a rosy nude. Seems to keep my lips in good condition.

Color Accuracy
Is the color of the swatches or the pictures next to them of the shoes closer to the actual color of the lip stick? Because for ones like Tokyo, there seems to be a pretty big difference.

It varies. Some shoes are closer and with some the squares are. Some differ greatly from the actual color and others, not so much and this is hard to know looking online! This is true of many products on this site and others, not only here. It's best to try for yourself. I sometimes feel I'm taking a chance ordering, fortunately Sephora is usually excellent with returns. I try to find other swatches of the same color online but over all I haven't been unhappy with the colors I've chosen just by reading the description and taking a shot. These are worth the effort, they are the best lipstick out there. Well priced, good quality and they do the job! Now with the addition of new Buxom True Nude lip foundations you can have more options for the tone and staying power you are seeking.

I didn't find them true-to-life at ALL!

Nantucket looked nice and neutral on the site, but really really orange in the store. Athens, on the other hand, looked orangey on the site and peachy in the store. All of the colors were more intense in person than in their online swatches.

If you're really particular about the color, you should definitely go to the store (and probably try it on your face instead of your hand because I found it much more opaque than I expected).

My skin and eyes are your colors, and my hair is dark brown (almost black) with silver highlights. That color is not too bright or too soft for me, and I think it should work well for you. It's a really good color. If you wanted it brighter, after you got it, I would used a Buxom gloss over it. The sets are good for adjusting tone, and even the colors I thought wouldn't look good on me mostly did when I tried them. I love the Lip Sticks!

I have dirty blonde hair with light highlighs and light skin. I usually apply a bronzer so my complection is a little darker, I guess more of the summer nude, and i have las Vegas and Amsterdam. For me amsterdam is a perfect nude everyday color, and las Vegas is perfect for going out. The color is gorgeous. It took me a little bit to get used to it because I usual go for more nude shades and the color is BRIGHT.
But I love it. Love them both.
Hope this helps

My top choice for you would be:

Bombay (rose) Item # 1250372

Las Vegas (vibrant pink) Item # 1195650 is likely to be softer than your natural lip color, however this would also be a great choice for a bright pink on the lighter side.

Sounds like you'd like San Francisco. Also Sydney is a nice pinkish nude to use as a base or layer over deeper colors. I couldn't do without these! Like you, I can't wear anything orangey or too warm in general. I have dark brown hair, lighter green eyes and use Medium foundation but also use Fair as these are cooler in tone.

The colors of Buxom are very clear and stay true. Try a few in the store and be sure to let them set on your skin or lips for a few minutes. My skin is a yellowy color. Very hard to find makeup for. I tried a few shades before I settled on the pink for summer and then found the exact shade just a little darker for winter.

If you look at Laura Mercier lipsticks, amaretto is great with those colors. It's a bronze pink, a good earthy neutral rich lip color that wears well. If you usually wear berry tones, their violet is really good.

It depends on how dark you like your lips. I am not a person who likes a lot of color on my lips and find Sydney is a great nude/pale pink that seems like it would be flattering on anyone. Try Sydney with the Leslie Gloss over the top and you will love it!

fushcia is the new red for fall, so you cant go wrong with the magenta shade, and the red apple color should be good on you as well as long as you have cool toned [not overly golden or reddish] hair and skin so you dont bring out the blue in the lip color too much.

Try outining the lips as a liner and then color them in. Then use the buxom Eva on the area you like plumper. I am sure you will get the result you need. I have not found that this pulls to orange, I purchased these two products to wear with red, a bright red....also to wear with other hard colors, like coral. Hope this helps.
