    I wear a lot of pinks, corals, and raisin/brown tones.

    I wear bright pinks, coral, orange, sometimes peach.
    Revlon's Blase Apricot is my favorite non-red lipstick.

    It seems kind of strange that Revlon's matte lipsticks are new- they must have had matte lipsticks in the 1940s?

    Actually, there were no mattes in the 40s. 1940s lipsticks contained lots of oils and animal fats, so they were creamy and slightly glossy.

    Revlon's Stormy Pink is matte now but it was a creme in the 50s.

    That makes sense, now that I think about it. The few older tubes I've seen are rather greasy. So matte came about in the 1960s apparently. I don't know why I associated it with earlier times.

    I always thought of 40s and 50s lipstick as matte and sort of dry - not sure why!

    I actually have an old metal lippie tube in "Persian Melon." How cool that they still make it!

    You find Ruby Woo to be pale? That's a new one on me... It's one of their amplified shades, and people usually think it's too bright.
