    The sultrier cousin of the pink lipstick and a less in-your-face colour compared to your classic red, the rose lipstick is the shade you should rock if you want to be assertive, yet not come on too strong. We love that it gives the appearance of just bitten lips. Plus, the colour brightens up skin tones instantly, so you look fresher and more energetic too. From matte to glossy finishes, here are 10 to try:
