Le rose vs. la rose?

Are the words 'LE rose' in the 1st sentence in the lesson, in the masculine gender because 'le rose' is used as a noun?  If the answer is yes, are all colours used as nouns masculine?

Hi Andrea,

In this sentence, 'le rose' means 'the colour pink' and yes it is always masculine -

Le blanc/ Le noir/ L'orange/ Le violet/ Le pêche ... lui va bien     

White/Black/Orange/Purple/Peach ... suits her/him

Hope this helps!
