Monday, November 29, 2010 For Doctors Without Borders- A Beautiful Holiday Auction

Cyber Monday, Cyber December- whatever you planned on purchasing, here's a beautiful and way to score some fabulous and/or rare (sold out, unavailable, limited edition) makeup, perfume and cosmetics items and donate money to one of the worthiest causes and organizations around, Doctors Without Borders. There are some very coveted, collectible and highly desired products on the list (brush sets, palettes, full size skin care bottles and seasonal colors, all donated by bloggers and beauty brands. is the collaboration of almost 50 different beauty bloggers and brands brought together by Karla Sugar. In the spirit of the holidays, we wanted to make a meaningful contribution to charity — knowing that the most effective donation to any charity is cash.

So we’re putting our makeup on the auction block. Winning bids will be donated directly to Doctors Without Borders.

We’re raising money for Doctors Without Borders because women are always disproportionately affected in any disaster. This organization is committed to bringing quality medical care to people in crisis, regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. They treat rape victims in Papua New Guinea; they make sure women don’t die in childbirth in Pakistan; they helped flood victims in Mexico and earthquake victims in Haiti. They work in 65 countries around the world, and your donation will make an immediate impact. Click here to learn more.

Some simple and sensible fine print:

  • The auction is live now at, and will close on Monday, December 20 at 5 pm CST

  • We are asking people to register before they can bid. This is simply to try to discourage "spam" bids. Usernames will be public (because the auction shows the username of the current highest bidder), but first name, last name, and email address will be private.  They will only be used to contact the winning bidders.

  • International bidders are welcome, too!

    1. What a great idea. One of my best friends is in Afghanistan with MSF and it breaks my heart to hear of the conditions in the area where he is based.

      Thanks to all of you beauty bloggers collaborating on this worthy project!

    2. Wonderful idea! I hope you raise a good chunk of money.
