Hi! Don't know if you have already purchased this product, but here are my two cents...

I have very similar features as you. I have hazel eyes, dark brown hair and fair skin. I too only like a hint of color. I guess I'm shy of vibrant and darker colors, simply because I'm not used to wearing them. I personally found Succulant Pomegranate to be too much color. I bought Cool Guava. I love it. Don't be daunted by the image online. That one will give you a little color without it being too overpowering. However, I don't think it will be a good fall/winter color. Any color you choose will most likely be great! I LOVE this product...

You might want to try the dark berry; a single layer would have some pinky/red color, additional layers will darken the shade. Most of the other colors are very light.

Try Lush Coconut or Juicy Grapefruit. We have similar coloring, and I like natural shades. The "coconut" looks brown in the tube and in photos, but imparts a beige-pink tint on lips (and when applied to a white tissue). The Juicy Grapefruit shade will add a bit of pink with shimmer. It would be hard to go wrong with either shade.

I ask several time at store and they told me it's no.2. That's why I buy it. But, I don't think it would show the same on your lips, because this collection is so sheer. I know the lip color on the modle is so delicious, but the true color is not the same. I still recommend it, it's so moisture and smells so good.

does Volupte Sheer Candy plump lips?
The more info para mentions spheres that penetrate lips and swell (like how other lip plumpers sometimes work). I'm wondering if this product also does it, as no one has commented on that effect.

No - these days every product claims to plump your lips and make your eyelashes grow and make you ace the LSAT without studying, so take claims like this with a boulder-sized grain of salt. Using a glossy color like this DOES make lips APPEAR fuller. For added fullness, use lipliner to line VERY slightly outside of your natural lip line, blend, add gloss/lipstick (don't go too dark unless you have full lips already), and add something with shimmer to the middle of your lower lip and along your cupid's bow.

I agree with Andreita. I decided to try this on in the store in the Cherry color. When I first put it on, I thought "meh". It just seemed like a regular lipstick that smelled great. I walked around the store and looked at my lips about 2 minutes later and was amazed. It took a second to do it's magic, but it definately creates a very smooth and shiney look, which is why I think it "plumps". What is also great is that it seems to last all day. Not necessarily the shine, but the color stains the lips too. Maybe not for the lighter shades, but definately stains for the Cherry.

01 Lush Coconut will complement your complexion, but 06 Luscious Cherry will also work because of it's golden shimmer, and the sheer pink cherry tint will add more youth and playfulness to your age. Then again, these shades are all so sheer and wearable. I think either one of them will look good on anybody with any type of complexion. Experiment and have fun:)

Save your money and buy a Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment instead. I was attracted to the packaging after I saw a review and bought it. I was so disappointed. It completely dried my lips out in less than a day and I had to constantly reapply it to keep my lips feeling moist. I'm glad Sephora lets me return/exchange products because I would have been really mad if I bought this and couldn't give it back.

I haven't made it through my tube, but the container is pretty large. I find this balm lasts longer than most. THAT was one of the deciding factors in my keeping it. I felt the soothing benefits of it through several blocks (hours) of teaching, whereas no other balm comes close.

The frequency at which you re-apply is really catered to each individual. That's really more of a personal thing. I re-applied twice yesterday-after eating. Some may have re-applied more...
30 is a bit pricey, but they are worth it. Do you have access to a Sephora store? I would suggest going & trying it out if the price is a genuine concern.

I'm very pale how sheer are the reddish colors?
I'm very pale (Scandinavian) with pale blonde hair and green eyes. I like the "classic look" of red lips, but deep reds overwhelm my coloring. I was interested because these colors use the word "sheer", so I would like to try one of the red colors. Has anybody had any experience with the reds? Thanks!

I tried the cherry red in the store and loved it. One coat is sheer light red, and you can add more with more coats. It never looks harsh or severe. It's also a cool red, not tomato or orangy. Looks good on pale skin.

answer 3
I am also very pale, and I love these partly for that reason. If you use a light hand, one coat is a pleasant, sheer, more gloss-like color. A little can go a long way if you are using the darker colors but going for a sheer look. My warning about the red is that the Luscious Cherry color is a good bit more pink than red. If you are looking for a true red shade, this may not be the product for you. I will say that, while it is a purply shade and not red, the Mouthwatering Berry is really pretty.

The colors are very sheer so with one or two swipes you'll get a nice sheen without alot of color. More application is needed for deeper colors. The grapefruit is colorless but is amamzing.
