However, I admire the women who look good in almost every shade of lipstick. The best example I can think of is Scarlett Johansson: red, pink, wine, orange, nude or pale, Scarlett's mouth looks good in all shades.
I even read that Scarlett was the one to inspire Katy Perry to sing 'I kissed a girl'...those are not my ambitions...but could I borrow her mouth for a single day?
It is just that it seems hard for me to nail down the right shade that brightens your eyes and illuminates the skin while wearing it. That is the reason I always reach for one of my MLBB (my lips but better) lippies, as they are the equivalent of a pair of jeans: confortable and a classic.
But sometimes a jeans can be a bit predictable and boring, and lipstickwise I want to have something similar as a cute dress or a cool tuxedo suit. So I tested out a million of bright colours (nah, just 30 or so) and found out that a pinky coral is a colour that would be workable for me.
Such as Nars Niagara! A pinky coral that adds a bit of extra zest to my look.
Nars Niagara has some good reviews on makeupalley.com. Check them out if you wish.
The Nars is more muted than the Rimmel. Rimmel has a brighter appearance. Also, Rimmel can be qualified as a pinkish coral, and Nars as a corally Pink (thus Rimmel has a coral base with some pink, Nars has a Pink base with some coral ;D)
