mini sets. I have gotten quite a few over the past year. They work great for me as I rarely go through a full-sized product and who doesn't want more things to try for less. They tend to always come with a Shadow Insurance and a Better Than Sex mascara. Very useful items in my book.

build my own palette. I think this sample may not be available online-perhaps a local store might still have this 100 point perk?
Ole Henriksen Ultimate Life Eye Creme. Another ridiculously adorable little mini. Eye creme samples are always useful. This one has an awesomely thick texture that really wakens and firms your under-eye instantly. It also has a great cucumber scent. Refreshing. This isn't showing up on the discount page-but there are many, many skincare sample options. Don't forget to use these codes online for extra samples.
Bite Lip Lab Limited Edition Trio-Bellini. I have been hoarding points for awhile now. Finally a larger point perk that I wanted. This one is 250. Not bad. It comes with a mini lipstick, mini lipgloss, and little mirror. I love Bite lip products, so I had to get this set. The bright pink shade is super fun too. The minis aren't too shabby size-wise either. It's still available, so if you are looking to cash in some reward points-go for it!
Do you spend your points as soon as you get them or do you hold on to them for bigger sets?

What were your favourites from this batch of Happy Mail?

my monthly favourites. I saw these products on display advertised as a cat eye kit. And I am all about the winged liner look, so I was suckered in. Plus, it was buy one, get one. So really- no loss. The Eye Booster Liquid Liner has been around awhile, but I hadn't tried it yet. I got the black shade. I love the metal packaging and the felt pen like applicator is perfect for wings both bold and thin. I was initially hesitant regarding the serum claims, but I actually think my lashes are longer. It took a week to notice, which makes me think it's true (the placebo effect would occur much earlier right?). I usually prefer natural-styled mascara wands, but the Physician's Formula rubber ones get my seal of approval. It takes using it a week though before I am a fan of the formula-which is probably true for most of my run-ins with mascaras. I can't exactly say that the Cat Eye mascara is really any different from the leaf tube, or the green leaf tube, or the pink leaf tube-but hey why not try the black with red velvet tube for a change.
Have you tried any of the cat eye products?

The bronzer is Casino, which is a nice mix-up from the usual Laguna. I don't think it's too dark for me as a contour which is great. I use the included mini Ita brush and love the result. The blush shades are perfect everyday essentials. Day Dream is a warm pink with a hint of shimmer, and New Attitude is a matte cool-toned pink. I have been mixing them together for a great summer-but still office appropriate-shade. Satellite of Love is a sparkly highlighter, but I don't think it looks to obnoxiously glittery on the skin.
I read mixed reviews on this palette, but I am all in. I haven't been using any other bronzers, blushes, highlighters since. Plus, the packaging is gorgeous-inside & out.
