Flex Those Bidding Fingers

Here's an opportunity to shop for a great cause: the annual charity auction.

For the second year in a row, beauty bloggers and brands have joined forces for an online auction benefitting Doctors Without Borders.

Participants have donated a treasure trove of the best lotions, potions, products, and gadgets. Donated items range from the hottest items from this year’s holiday collections to hard-to-find exclusives and limited edition cult favorites.

Plenty of items are still going for far less than retail. There are some great bargains to be had — and some sweet second chances to buy those hot items you regret missing out on. The cost of shipping is donated by the bloggers and brands, so every dime goes to Doctors Without Borders. So bid! Tell your friends! Tell strangers in the grocery store!

A few ideas to tempt you:
• the famous Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush (they aren't kidding about "perfect"):
• Urban Decay mega-haul: shadows, liners, lipsticks, glosses. Keep it for yourself or split it with friends. (
• OPI's holiday collection:
• Cult Nails' "Cult Favorites":
(and Cult Nails is going to match the winning bid up to $250!!!)

The auction ends Monday, December 12th at 5 pm CST.
