Which of these have you seen/like/think would suite someone with pale skin and dark hair/eyes? #1 and #7 really seem like my type - but i'm interested to hear what you ladies think!
I tested them out at the counter and I purchased the ones that would be more in the cool tone family. I have the following: 1, (nude pink) 7,(light baby pink) 8, (brighter pink) 10, (Fuchsia color) & 12 (burgundy color). Note: The colors in the ( ) are my description and not the actual names.
It really depends on what level of color you want and the tone. I am NW15 and I like the blue or cool undertones. Anything peach, coral, brown, beige, or tomato red really doesn't look good on me at all.
There was one rose tone that I wanted and didn't get. Also, there was a red that wasn't blue based enough for me, so I passed on it.
The best way to test is in person. People have different pigment to their lips and that can really change how these colors play up or down on them.
There really is a nice selection. There are ones that are total nude beige, peach, coral pink, to a tomato red.
