Natural and daytime, as in, pale pink putty or a nice bright pink, but not too over the top bright? The first I described would be #19, one of the palest of them all, Beige Aquarelle... I like #17 Encre Rose, because it is a slightly bright pink but it is definitely toned down enough so it doesn't look "TOO" harsh/loud...

I posted swatches in the ratings section that might help. I find 12 is a really pretty coral-berry-pink. 7 is more brown when it goes on, but shines pretty pink as it wears off. I'll post one of the swatches--look for my post to see the colors in different lighting as well. Personally I feel this swatch is more true to color under artificial light.

No. 17 is a pretty bright pink. Hot pink comes to mind as a description. I have very fair skin and the color really pops. If you are looking for bright, it's a great color. If you aren't then another color would suit you better.

I have 15 and it's perfect. it looks a lot different when you put it on. the girl who helped me put it on with a lip brush which made it a different color than when I swip it on from the applicator. actually I like the Color from the applicator better. However, the gloss is more wet than shine.

My fair skin is particularly bright because of the Physician's Formula brightening powders I use (and the whiteners because of my PCOS). I love red lipstick because the golden age of Hollywood stars have influenced me since childhood- HOWEVER this doesn't work for everybody. So I'll recommend #9 Rouge Laque because it''s a solid red with light coral undertones, #11 Rouge Gouache because of the mauve undertones, and # 14 Fuchsia Dore because pink/lavender will make you appear less gaunt depending on your facial structure.

Online there was a beautiful redhead with your coloring who got #4 & 20. 4 was an absolute knockout on her. 20 was beautiful, but the berry-purple of 4 really brought her to that "movie star gorgeous" that you want from a $35 lip gloss.
I can't find the website now. Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with a violet under tone. If you want a red--11 would be beautiful: its a great soft slight-blue/violet red.

I felt the exact same way when I went into the store looking for yet another lip gloss. The associate recommended this and I was a little sticker shocked at $35 a tube, however, I can't say enough good things about this. It really is a lipstick, liner and gloss in one. I drink water all day long at my desk and I kept my mirror with me to check it every so often. I re-applied once in the morning and that was it. I really did it just because I'm so paranoid it will smear all over and be gone. This one really stays put. Plus I wiped it off to eat, and my lips were barely tinted. You'll be able to remove it easily when you want to.

This does not fall into the category of what I term an actual 'stain'. In other words, I can use it and it will stay on for a couple of hours if I don't drink or smoke with it on. Otherwise, it wears off. This doesn't bother me as it is the look and feel of the product that I was looking for. If you are looking for a traditional 'staining' product, this is not for you.

I felt the same way, and while it does stain the lips, and you do have to use makeup remover to get rid of it, it does wipe of easily while wearing it, at least to my experience. I ate with it on and that was fine, but I wouldn't go kissing people as it will end up on them.

The darker berry and reds definitely stain and don't wipe off. The lighter corals/nudes don't last as long but they stay put and you can "freshen" with a clear gloss on all the colors. They last longer than a typical gloss. I'd say for me around 3-5hrs depending on the color and light colors have to be reapplied after eating.

I would strongly suggest that you try the color 18. I absolutely love it. I have blue eyes and a fair to light medium skin tone and don't like a dark , harsh looking lip color. I think darker lipstick takes away from you eyes. Shade 18 is the softest , baby pink, lasts very well, looks so soft and feminine. If this is the look you like I think you will go wild over this shade.

if you put more pink on skin with pink undertones, you will look visibly more pink. I think you should go with a more neutral shade, a nude or a taupe shade, to try to bring some contrast t neutralize your coloring. :)
