Looks like a sheer orange-red to me 🙂

It looks like it’s a sheer nude over very rosy red lips. If you look in the center of her lips you can see the line where her lipstick ends and her real lips begin.

It looks like a deeper orange/reddish lip liner with a (possibly semi sheer) coral lipstick or lip gloss inside. You would need to play with colors and shades to find the one that matches your skin tone, anyway, so all of your guesses are close enough that you can start experimenting.

Pink-red vs orange-red on the model don’t really matter if only one of them looks good on you.

ETA- I would take this image to a makeup counter and ask them for some guidance since they will actually have colors available to try out and will also be able to see your skin/complexion. Also, make sure you look at the colors on yourself under the store lights and also outside in natural sunlight. They may show up differently depending on the setting.

It’s a pinky peach. Something like tickle-me-peach lip oil by Too Faced.

A corral sade or possible a light blood orange.

bluejaybride :  best bet would be to take this pic to your nearest Sephora/ mac counter where they can match you up perfectly. Gl

I feel like this is kind of close?! Idk, I just saw this video today though and it looks somewhat similar. It’s Fenty Beauty’s new lipsticks that launch this week. I think she describes it as being a sheer orangey color in the video.

I’d say apricot or rosy orange. It also looks to be fairly sheer. Maybe even a gloss or stain?

Just be careful with orange tones, they can make your teeth look more yellow than they really are!

If you have naturally dark lips, I would recommend trying Shanghai Spice from Mac. That gives me that result!
