Make Out 2014 - May Update

Just after I posted the first part of my NYC haul I realized I hadn't done this update. Sigh.

May belonged to Rimmel London. I was ecstatic to see their display stand in iMart Sheraton.

I'm a big fan of their ScandalEyes waterproof pencils and matte lipsticks so I couldn't resist...I just couldn't!

So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.
