Readers, I am delighted to report that the BeautyBloggers.org charity beauty auction is back for year 2, and the items up for sale are mind-blowingly amazing.
This project is the collaborative effort of more than 50 beauty bloggers and brands — who donate new makeup (plus the cost of shipping it to the winner). 100% of your winning bid goes to Doctors Without Borders, an organization dedicated to helping people in need, regardless of their race, religion, or politics.
Some of this year’s items include a complete set of Le Metier de Beaute’s Peau Vierge skincare line (retail value: $1,135, and everyone who tries this stuff swears it changed their life). There’s a Clarisonic, the entire NARS holiday collection, and an unbelievable artist’s treasure trove of Urban Decay products. And I hope somebody bids on my item, a Le Metier Karla Sugar lipgloss, which was available exclusively at the Neiman Marcus counter in Dallas this past summer.
The auction starts Monday, November 28 (Cyber Monday for those of us who start our shopping calendars at Thanksgiving). Until then, feel free to peruse the site, register to bid, and bookmark your favorite items.
