Color is strongly affected by growing conditions, e.g., how much nitrogen the plant has been getting. Don't get too hung up on its "lipstick". Young plants like this one are practically impossible to identify definitely if the number of possible varieties it could be is large. You can rule out some varieties, for example, like the ABB ones which all have closed petioles.
