Alright everyone: I need your help!

These are two lip products I bought without really knowing what the colors would be like on my skin because I always buy the same color lip stick! (Berry colors, very close to my natural lip color).
But I just...don't...like them! I think it has more to do with what I'm expected & my tendency to only where darker berry pinks, but maybe they just look bad on me.

Can you help?

First: Colourpop Lippie Stix in Cake

Of the two, this is the one I think I'm most likely to come around to! While the color is WAY paler than anything I'm used to wearing, this is the third time I've tried to apply it. And I didn't totally hate it this time!
I still think the coloring just isn't right for me - but what could I do to make it look more appropriate?

Second: Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Retro Coral

I don't know what I expected from this color....but this is what I got. It just feels so clownish to me! Am I imagining how orange it looks with my tones? Or am I just being dramatic because it's way more colorful than anything I'm used to?
It probably doesn't help that my lips needs some TLC before they can handle a liquid lipstick...but I just don't know how to make this work!

SO want to love these!

I'm convinced that if I style these differently I can make them work, but maybe it's a lost cause. Or maybe they're already fine & I'm being ridiculous.

Any & all opinions/feedback are welcome!!!

Help a girl out :)
@waanderer @lilelmo112 @cindystran Thank you guys!! Seems like there is hope for that second color after all, haha! Just gotta convince myself :)
Yes! Def give that a try and let me know how you like it better that time around
Well, first of all, you're gorgeous. Basically I think anything would look good on you, just because. As for the lip color... I like number 1. Number 2 might be harder to come around to lol as you said. Got any friends who love makeup? Eh?
Okay, I am just going to jump in here! First, you have a great face @hikaymm I am not loving the Lippie Stix because of the texture it leaves on your lips. I'd say ditch it. Anastasia Beverly Hills, on the other hand is gorgeous! Love that bright pop of coral. Photos are never like real life, so perhaps the color I am seeing isn't what you're seeing. That's a possibility. Honestly, I love ABS color on you. It's fresh, it's chic. Perfect for Spring. I'd say give it another go. However, if you're not feeling it, wear what you love and makes you feel great, confident and wonderful. :)
They're both gorgeous colors and I think you would like them more if you started off with a lip liner! Try a pink, brown or berry shade. I assure you will love it all the more!
