I won't go into too much detail, but below are my most favorite pale nude lipsticks (I'll get to glosses later). I might do a post about a few others in the future, but believe me when I say that I've tried and tested A LOT of such colors...so many brands, so many finishes, so many versions of colors (or lack of colors should I say). The lipsticks below won me over in the end and I've been faithful ever since :-).
The first three are in the pale nude pink family, all the rest are pale nudes that are more beige.
MAC - Out of Shock (very pale pink...pink pink pink)
Covergirl - Powderpink #400 (very wearable light pink...this is in the cooler color family)
MAC - Fleshpot (Gorgeous pale nude...slight hint of pale pink, but almost not)
MAC - Creme D' Nude (love it...super wearable because of its lustre, but still so pale and perfect)
MAC - Myth (a great substitute for Fleshpot..just a little more neutral)
MAC - Tanarama (frosty, super pale, kind of sheer, great over a lipstick or by itself...can't use too heavy of a hand though...otherwise your lips will be sparkly white...hehe. very good to have though!)
Victoria's Secret Heidi Klum Collection - Malibu (sheer, but gorgeous pale...kind of like Fleshpot minus the matte finish)Some swatches for you, although its tough to see accurately. At least you can get the idea of the colors in comparison to NC40 skin color.

If you love pale lips, try one or two or all of the options above :-). That's it! Till next time :-)
