I have very dark brown hair and super pale skin (think casper the ghost) I usually wear quite dark and bright lipsticks (Nars Cruella, Laura Mercier Healthy and Lipstick Queen in Rose) but Id like a more subtle colour for daytime spring. I have really cool colouring so warm tones make me look ill.
I absolutely love Rimmels lip liner (its not lip stick as such but I wear it as lippy). Shade is Addiction - I have pale skin, blue eyes, brown hair and I like natural looking kind of make up without looking too made up. I always use carmex as a lip balm then blot it a little then put the lip liner on - stays put for ages. putting the carmex on first always seems to make your lips look a little fuller too.
I have the same colouring as you and tend to go for sheer lipsticks, lipgloss or lip butter during the day. E.g. Korres lip butter in quince, Laura mercier gloss in blush and lipstick queen gloss in Jean Queen. The Laura Mercier is probably my favourite. My sister also really rates the By Terry Lipstick range. Not sure what colour though. Will watch this thread for more suggestions though!
