I've looked for the perfect nude and failed.
I tried pinks and failed.
Make up ladies always try and sell me darker shades which I don't like.

I am brown skinned and want to a orange/red/coral, maybe this will work for me?

Can you recommend me one please?

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte in Valencia Orange.

Orange in the tube, a soft longlasting coral on. Wore mine today.

The perfect nude is Patisserie by MAC, Drive me Nude by Rimmell ( it's in a longer tube than normal ones) Bare vy MUA. I'm hoping th perfect coral is Lady Danger by MAC thought it's a bright one.

Proudly Naked in the Bourjois lip crayon for a nude

Same thing but in Orange Punch is coral based (don't be put off by the brightness! It's quite sheer and works with your lip colour)
On the Beach is nice too - 3for2 as well at boots so a bargain!

I have put many hours' research into this OP. So much depends on skin tone obviously but I love (so much that I bought a second one, just in case and I have never done that before) Mac Flamingo. Looks a bit scary but isn't on.

I've just bought Melted Melon by Too Faced which is a lovely coral but quite bright! Another orangey suggestion is Revlon Siren?

The new Colour Pop lipsticks by Clinique. Melon Pop is a soft peach-coral nude, and Poppy Pop is a gorgeous bright coral-orange-red.

I was looking at a few bits of nexts line of makeup yesterday and their lip crayons had a lovely coral colour.

Nars manhunt sounds like it might suit you? It's sort of a coralish red I think (rubbish with colours) but the first red I've found that has suited me

MAC See Sheer is a non-scary coralish pink, good for everyday.

yes to Mac see sheer!
I also love Mac crosswires, very similar to see sheer just more pigmented. I am pale and it really brightens up my face, in a non scary way! smile smile

You need Jungle Queen by 'Lipstick Queen' (Poppy King) - link here

�� but worth it.

Lipgloss not lipstick, but Clarins 'Papaya' lipgloss is an absolutely beautiful shade of coral - makes me look like I've had a good night's sleep even when I haven't.

I agree with the others, you have to try out Mac See Sheer. I have similar skintone and this is perfect....nice to see it works for so many others too.

Avon matte peach.

Rockalily mermaid though it's a cult one and quite hard to get your mitts on! grin
