Rodial Glamsticks are lovely in my opinion, they have some gorgeous neutral shades. They're not matte though if you were looking for a matter lipstick.
If you're unsure of colours maybe have a look at some of the Make Up Revolution lipsticks, super affordable and the formula for the price is pretty good - might be best to buy a few cheaper ones to find which kind of shades you'd prefer before investing in a more expensive brand.
Oh you mean natural ingredients, not natural looking colour! Right, that's pretty easy too.
If you've got friends who wear bright lipsticks, have a borrow (if you're not the type to obsess about germs, no cold sores obvs). Put it on without other make up, to really check how the colour looks on you. It's very exciting! Try a pillar box red, a bright orangey one, a dark berry, a true bold pink, a proper purply plum. They won't all suit you but some will depending on your colouring. Once you know what colours you like move on to textures and naturals brands - Sorry can't help you there.
And once you wear them a couple of times, you'll just be one of us women who wear bold lipsticks. It's great. You need to do more subtle eye makeup with a bold lip, I expect you know that.
