Depends on skin tone for sure, also time of day. I'm probably more into red shades then pink shades, if you don't want red in the day, I'd maybe go gloss ... BUT ... if pink is natural on you it might look good.
It's not something I pay big attention to.. as long as it looks good to you, it's alright..
Light pink is probably the "safest" bet because it doesn't stand out too much.. but it's not the only good option, red is also good along with normal or tan skin tone... probably the only reason some guys hate red lipstick is because they've seen very pale chicks wearing it.. and that looks creepy for sure!
If you won't resemble Nicki Minaj after putting on your lipstick - then you've done it just fine!
