RUIMIO Contour Kit Contour Palette Contour and Highlighting Powder Contour Kit -20 Colors

amazon UK buy link

 

Well, this came as a shock, I was expecting a set the size of one of those mixed eye shadow ones but its huge! A massive 9 x 6 inches.

It comes in a black slim card box and the set itself is a glossy smart plastic outer with the RUIMIO brand stamped on in gold.

NB: Its advertised as powder but its not, its creams which blend really well. If its powder you want the company do a similar set if powders here http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B014Y9RDMK/

The lid to the set just flips up to open, to reveal the creams in a great variety of shades from white to dark brown, and with some great soft pinks and a green for those like me with a permanent beetroot face!!  As with the other set I’d have liked to see a mirror set in the lid, that would be really useful but…I guess you could buy a stick on one?

The creams  are really soft and easy to lift. I’ve shown a few shades on the back of my hand/wrist, on my darkish coloured skin. The creams can be used neat or easily blended to create exactly the shade you want to give subtle shading and highlighting to define features, and of course blending makes them suitable for almost all skin tones. Included are two double end sponge applicators, a large double end brush and a sponge applicator. Him Indoors thinks the sponge looks like a huge marshmallow sweet and I can see what he means!

Being creams these will need washing out of brushes and applicators after each use, some simple detergent is easy to get them clean and ensure they are dry before storing to avoid mould and smells.

Stars: Five.  Product supplied for honest review.

LIHAO 3″ Herb Grinder 4 piece grinder for Weed Spice Tobacco Pollen with Storage Container Lifetime Warranty (Black)

amazon UK buy link

 

 

This arrived well packed along with some other items in a secure box.It comes in its own box, with the actual grinder contained in another round metal tin, useful for keeping tobacco fresh and making it the perfect gift for a smoker who does their own tobacco ( I’ll pass on the weed reference!) or keen cooks who want to gring herbs and spices.

Its a solid piece, heavy and very robust and feels it will last years. It comes apart easily for cleaning, and fits well when in use, making the grinding movement easy.

Not being a smoker I tried it for grinding up some spices. Its easy to use, I just shook gently until all the spices had settled in-between the grinding teeth. Then added the lid and swivelled it back and forth till spices through to next section. It left them quite coarse but if I wanted them finer they can be run through a few more times. I also tried some dried bay leaves I had to hand, and they ground up far easier than trying to crumble them. You could make specific herb/spice blends for teas or marinades, casseroles etc with this and keep in jars ready to use. This is quite a small grinder, I’ve used bigger ones but this fits in a pocket easily for those who want that.

Stars: Five. Quick and easy to use.

Viagdo Packable Backpack Lightweight Folding Travel Daypack for Hiking, Camping, Traveling Outdoor Activities (Shiny Green)

amazon UK buy link

 

The UK have just introduced a bag charge (which I think is great, save all that plastic in landfill) so this backpack is a great buy. Its waterproof, folds into a tiny pouch with a zip that can be easily tucked in a pocket, and is perfect for carrying around so you’ve always somewhere to put purchases. It’s got a large central capacity, a small inner zipped pocket and an outer second zipped pocket and two mesh side pockets – perfect for drinks bottles for hikers or students.

Its incredibly lightweight, made of a highly rip and water resistant 210D nylon fabric and very strong, so will take groceries, heavy books, packed lunches easily. Its in a bright acid green colour which helps visibility. I would have liked a couple of reflective tabs on this as I’ve seen on others. safety is so important.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
