Good question. I've been trying to get that 'natural' color in my lips as well--- if anyone has any ideas, that'd be great!

I've used lip stains to get this 'natural' look. So far I've tried Vincent Longo and Urban Decay. Both are pretty good, actually, about tinting my lips a nice shade of pink (the Vincent Longo lasts longer than the Urban Decay).

I've also tried tinted lip balms which are nice as well, although they wear off sooner than a stain.

Can't you just put a concealer over the top lip and cover with a tinted lipgloss? I don't know really, I mean its natural for the upper lip usually to look darker than the bottom one, especially as you get older.

yes lips change colour naturally. I find if i eat really spicy food or seafood my lips get a real raspberry colour and it's a bit irksome but this is the way lips are. My lips get real puffy in the morning as well but meh. Biting your lips a little bit will help get blood into them.

Exfoliate your lips well and moisturise with a moisturising lip balm - you could try one of those plumping products as well. They encourage blood flow and collagen production which I can only imagine making your lips more rosy.

If you want natural looking rosy lips, don't use a lot of lipstick and that too frequently, instead, opt for a lip-balm with vitamins and SPF or use a lip tint and add some clear gloss over.

Isn't that what ERR make-up is for, to enhance features that you aren't pleased with? Besides, lip stains are way better at that sort of thing anyway, lipstick is rubbish if you don't want to look as if you're wearing makeup. Lipstains last for about a day or so. You could also try using a tongue brusher on your lips because that's really gentle, and then put lipbalm on afterwards to protect the lips.

But otherwise I don't think you can cheat your way into it, mother nature gave you those lips, and now its given you cosmetics.

U will maybe laugh,but I used to put at night as a balm,the AUREOMYCINE pomade,which is an ophtalmologic pomade for eyes,in it there's a bit of penicilline,and it exfoliate my lips softly and it makes them pulpous and very natural and soft in the morning.

U are right about this one,I have also the lipstick 8h,and it pricks a bit in the begining,which makes the lips red and fleshy,and gives them a volume.

Exfoliate your lips with a toothbrush while taking your shower or after brushing your teeth. Not only does it keeps dead skin at bay, it also stimulates blood circulation and gives you nice rosy lips (for a short period of time though).

You could also use lipstick in your natural lip color (or slightly more rosy) that has STRONG color pigment to give both of your lips the same shade.
