Rituals Lipstick- La Vie en Rose

Rituals is a brand I hear very little about and also know very little about but after doing a bit of reading I found that it concentrates mainly on body products, doesn't test on animals and is inspired by nature- which sounds a little like The Body Shop really. 
They have stores through out Europe but I have only ever been to the one in St Pancras Station however John Lewis does also stock their products. 
 When I had some time to kill at the station I picked up a lipstick in La Vie en Rose, at the time I thought it was similar to Mac Viva Glam Gaga but in fact it is a little darker.
The Rituals website claims that this product is 'Comfortable and creamy' and it is just that! A light formula which is moisturising and a buildable pigmentation. I think this is one of the better quality lipsticks in my collection although it doesn't last very long due to how light weight it is.
(winter is drying my lips out so much! It was not the lipsticks fault, I had just applied)
I actually quite like the packaging, black and classes nothing too fancy. I also love that on the lipstick itself it has the brand name molded in.
At £11.50 it isn't cheap but actually I think I would pay it again as you do get 4g.

Would I recommend it?
I really like the feel of this lipstick and the colour so yes I would recommend it. The range only includes 11 shades which is a little disappointing but I would love to try a few more. This is a great product for anyone looking for a moisturising lipstick.

What have you tried from Rituals?
