Rimmel Oh My Gloss and new ScandalEyes Extreme Mascara: Review and Swatches

Rimmel Oh My Gloss Purrr... Glossy Cat #130, and Ooh La La #500:  FOTD, Review and Swatches

Rimmel recently released a new line of colourful lipglosses inspired by Rita Ora  (the face of the collection). I was sent the shades Purrr… Glossy Cat #130, and Ooh La La #500 to try.

Purrr… Glossy Cat is a pale cool nude with medium to high pigmentation, pretty decent coverage for a pale nude. Ooh La La is a bright fuschia pink with medium pigmentation. Both products have a reasonably good wear time for a gloss on my lips (about 2hrs before it’s mostly faded)- I was surprised at the relatively good wear time of Glossy Cat for a nude gloss- although I did find that the product tended to accumulate at the inner part of the lips, which meant I needed to tidy up with a tissue before reapplying at the 2hr mark.

These do sit very comfortably on the lips, with a moisturising, cushiony feel and a non-sticky, lightweight formula.

Rimmel says…

“OMG! Get set to sing, shout and scream with pumped, hi-gloss, luscious lips. Pushing the boundaries of long-lasting lustre, Oh My Gloss! marries Rimmel’s Gloss Lock’ technology with Argan Oil and Vitamin E. The formula delivers up to 6 hours of crowd-roaring colour, shine and comfort. With its non-sticky, lightweight feel, your lip-look couldn’t get any better!”

Price: RRP $13.95 AUD

Availability: available from May 2015 from Priceline, Priceline Pharmacy, Chemist Warehouse, Target, Kmart, BIG W, selected pharmacies and selected Coles and Woolworths.

Rimmel has also released their ScandalEyes Extreme Mascara, with a 2 sided brush. I don’t often blog about mascaras, there are only a few that are remarkable- most of them are pretty ordinary and same-same on my lashes. This is a goody though, it really does volumise and lengthen damn well especially if you take the time to use both sides of the brush.

Price: $16.95

Cambodia’s Floating Villages: Straight, No Chaser

Floating village in Cambodia

Across the Mekong river from Phnom Penh, lies one of the many Vietnamese ‘floating’ villages in Cambodia. These communities of ethnic Vietnamese formed on the river because according to the government they are not considered Cambodian citizens, and by law cannot own land in Cambodia. So they built their ‘floating’ homes on stilts above the water (technically not built on Cambodian land!).Post Magazine published an interesting article about this.

On our second day visiting Phnom Penh late last year, we took a car ferry over to visit this village as a part of a half day photography tour that I had joined. I found this to be an intriguing, visually exciting (thus the photography tour), but morally confusing experience. Should we be taking tours that profit by taking tourists into the backyards and peeking into houses of some of the most downtrodden people in the country? On the other hand, it is perhaps not a bad thing for the outside world to be aware (even if it is through tourism) of these floating vietnamese communities- who have been completely abandoned by the country they call home. The villagers themselves didn’t seem to be bothered by us at all- in fact the villagers were all smiles, and children were very playful and loved having their photo taken.

Peruvian Cerviche Recipe on Straight, No Chaser

My favourite Peruvian dish is cerviche- which features fresh raw fish marinated in lemon juice, garlic, ginger, and aji peppers. We went pretty mad for cerviche during our trip to Chile and Peru (consuming a cerviche almost every day we were there), so I was really happy about getting a chance to how to prepare an authentic Peruvian cerviche during a cooking class in Cusco. We were taught by a chef from Lima.
