I can’t tell you how many times I bought a shade of lipstick because I saw how good it looked on the model but after trying it on myself, it ends up looking completely different.
I recently learned that your skin tone and complexion plays a huge part in finding the perfect shade of lipstick that will work best with your unique attributes.
But how does one possibly know what their perfect shade is for a nude, red, or pink lipstick? That’s where TōN Cosmetics comes in!

TōN lipstick formula is made with
For my fair complexion and cool undertone, I was recommended TōN Cosmetics lipsticks in the shade: Fair Cool 1, Fair Cool 2, Fair Cool 3.
Fair Cool 3 – TōN Cosmetics Lipstick
Color description: With an ever-so-slight hint of berry undertones combined with a touch of shimmer to soften the look, this pink shade is perfectly suited to your fair, bluish hue.
My review: In my opinion, there’s more than a touch of shimmer to this lipstick. The soft pink lipstick color is very pretty but the overwhelming amount of shimmer makes this difficult for me to wear everyday, however, I do love wearing this as a lip topper on-top of other shades.
Fair Cool 1 – TōN Cosmetics Lipstick
Color description: Designed to neutralize your bluish hue, this nude was designed specifically for your fair, cool complexion.
My review: I was surprised with how good this nude lipstick looked on me! I typically go for a pink-nude shade but this soft-peach nude really ended up complementing my fair complexion.
Fair Cool 2 – TōN Cosmetics Lipstick
Color description: With your fair complexion and bluish undertone, a slight pink tint is all you need to make your red lip colour work.
My review: Color appears like a neutral dark red lipstick on me. I wouldn’t normally pick this dark of a red lipstick for myself so I’ve been enjoying playing around with different looks with this new dark red shade of lipstick.
Price: CAD$22/each on toncosmetics.com
Formula: All 3 of TōN lipsticks formula were quite consistent with one another. The lipsticks were pigmented, smooth, and felt comfortable on the lips with a satin smooth finish.
The lipsticks, however, did transfer and need reapplying throughout the day and/or after eating and drinking.
Overall review: I love the idea of having someone help me pick out my perfect shade of lipstick that works best for my complexion and skin tone. And all I had to do was answer a quick and easy questionnaire! I also did learn a lot about how different complexions and undertones play a factor in choosing an ideal shade that works best for me.
The price of each lipstick is $22, making it a mid-to-high end lipstick. If you take the questionnaire, you do get a personalized experience and an expert opinion.
