I am gutted. It was 'Fresh Watermelon', shade no 414 in their Butter Shine Lipstick range. It was the most perfect shade for my pale skin, natural enough but still a shiny and glam iyswim. If anyone has any recommendations for similar shades or sourcing any remaining stock please let me know.

I can find a link to one on eBay but it's in the US and is over £65 with p&p!!!

These have great shine and a hint of colour. They're a bit sheer. I'm super pale too and the Proudly Naked one looks like my lips but better and has a lovely gloss finish. It's pinker than it looks in this pic.

I am also pale and like a little colour

Catrice ultimate lip glow is gorgeous on. Very subtle shiny and wearable

Have you tried Revlon lip butters? I think there's a watermelony shade in that.

Laura Mercier do a beach tint 'lip & check stain' in Watermelon which I like. It's matt, but nice & natural. (Fellow pale skin person).

Thanks to all for your suggestions fellow pale ones! Definitely going to give them all a try. I managed to pick up a Kiko lippie and a 3INA one on my lunch, they're close but hopefully your suggestions will be better.
