If there’s one person who I trust for a lipstick recommendation, it’s Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The model-turned-beauty-entrepreneur has knocked it out of the ballpark with her beauty brand Rose Inc, but the Satin Lip Colour Rich Refillable Lipstick might just be the standout – and, the easiest way to achieve the founder’s signature pillowy lip look.
Creamy but surprisingly weightless, Satin Lip Colour is formulated to plump, smooth and blur the look of lips thanks to a cocktail of skincare-adjacent ingredients (think sodium hyaluronate and plant oils). It’s pigmented, but the muted colour palette ensures almost every shade delivers a ‘your-lips-but-better’ finish. As for longevity, it’s great considering how emollient it is, and not once in my experience did it crumble or turn chalky. The lipstick itself is stamped with a tiny Rose Inc logo (chic), while the powder-pink bullet is refillable, enhancing the keepsake nature of the product.
All 10 shades have just launched locally via Mecca Cosmetica, so in celebration I’ve swatched four favourites below.
Besotted is a soft pinky beige that I think is a great pick for lighter skin tones. It’s quite light, but the moisturising finish ensures it never catches or settles. It doubles as a great eye tint, too.

Fun fact: I bought Enigmatic myself before I was fortunate enough to recieve samples, because I saw Rosie call it out her Instagram. It’s very close to her signature deep browny-pink, so think of it as a neutral with depth. I love it smudged on with a little lip liner for everyday wear.

If you love more of a mauve undertone, Intuitive is for you. It’s a very feminine shade – I felt ‘done’ after a single swipe – but because it’s slightly rosy it also woke up my skin. Love!

Demure is a coral-pink-peach hybrid that’s fresh and illuminating. I think it would make for a great blush on medium to fair skin, too.
