Thank You Giveaway! CLOSED

I've been collecting bits for this giveaway for a little while now. I was going to say it's in celebration of reaching 350 followers but really it's just a thank you to you all for reading, commenting and keeping me going. I know there are more of you out there than just those listed on Google Friends Connect, the lovely emails tell me so.

Avon Super Shock gel eyeliner in black
Rimmel Lash Accelerator mascara in Extreme Black
Shiro Cosmetics mineral eyeshadows in Vulpix and Brock the Rock
Max Factor eyeshadow in 107 Burnt Bark
MUA eyeshadow in Shade 12 (I believe this is the dupe for Club)
Trilogy Mini-Hydrating Body Cream and Mini-Gentle Facial Exfoliant
Guerlain Super Aqua Serum sample
