Safe lip colours

Belly did a post about a lipstick that is her "perfectly your lip shade" and compared a lot of lipsticks of similar colour and that kind of made me go through my entire stash to look for one.  I don't own a colour that is my lips but even, I probably don't want to because it's going to be either beige brown or weird beige purple tinted skin colour. 

Dirty cases of well loved lipsticks :P

Excuse my dry naked lips. I don't really know how to describe the colour of my lips because they can be a bit more pink or mauve depending on the weather and my general health and I have brown pigmentation spots.  I usually go for lipsticks that compliments my complexion  a look "healthy and fresh" look.

In the sun.
THREE Glam Touch Lipstick Color 14
I like this kind of colour
These are my favourite lip colours and formulas that help my lips look better without being too bold. You can see they are mostly orange hue, peachy beige, hint of warm red. The first strip of product is Shu Uemura Face architect illuminating moisture fluid foundation 774 for skin colour reference.

Addiction Day Trip is well loved, it helps to evens out my lips in a very subtle way that doesn't look unnatural.  I also use it to mix/blend out the Cheek stick Revenge to a wearable consistency.  I like to use it with Last Scene as well because that makes a really nice colour for my lips.

NARS Lipstick TZIGANE, is almost the same colour as Day Trip lipcrayon on my lips but a bit more red to it.  It's my go to nude lip colour with some depth.  This is scented but I actually like the smell.  This might be discontinued as I can't find it any more.

SUQQU Bright Up Lipstick EX-01 MITSUDAIDAI the lighter in tone but very to similar to Tzigane in hue maybe a tiny bit less red. I was hoping it would be similar to CG 06 but it isn't.  This is LE :(

THREE Glam Touch Lipstick Color 14, is that fresh colour I've been trying to buy forever and the formula is lovely.  Most other attempts in this colour have turned out garish and complete fails because of opaque white bases.

SUQQU Creamy Glow Lipstick in 06, this is probably the favourite out of the bunch to wear but itself. I  like to use to mix/layer it with 01 Saebana to tone down the blue to make a nicer colour. This one also mixes well with 18 Karakurenai for a brighter but not full on colour.  I wish I had more CG colors but I got these off Dollyleo when they were about to close down and I could not accept the markup on other sites.

SUQQU SUQQU Creamy Glow Lipstick in 09, Is my go to sophisticated lip colour, kind of boring lol. I would like this colour as blush but the lipstick can double as cream blush which is great.

I totally forgot to add Dior Addict lipstick in Nude 333 (discontinued) that use to serve a similar role as SUQQU Creamy Glow Lipstick in 06 and Canmake Smily Gerbera (fresh orange beige tint) in the swatch lineup.  In my last lipstick related post I was complaining about Madame Flirte being unflattering but after a bit of experimenting it looks a lot better (like strawberry red) when layered on top of Canmake Smily Gerbera because it looks like real life colour balance adjustment without changing the texture or the jelly look too much.

I just checked my stash and I feel a bit ashamed of how much stuff I have because I own 37 lipsticks, 10 glosses (don't use at all), 6 balms, 3 stain/gels and 3 crayons and 2 lip liners :( I need to purge the ones that I don't like/use any more since my fridge is look quite full.
