BeautyBloggers.org Charity Auction! R&R Call Me ;)

Hi everyone! Today I want to let you guys know about a very special charity auction that swatch queen KarlaSugar asked me to be a part of. Many well-known bloggers and companies have donated beauty products to help raise donations for women in need around the world. Of course, I was super excited to contribute! As a makeup addict and blogger, I've been blessed with a lot of cosmetics that are much more than I can use myself so it makes me feel really humbled that something as silly as donating makeup can hopefully really make a difference in other womens' lives.


My personal contribution is a brand new Rock & Republic Contrived Pressed Blush in Call Me (click here for my swatches and review). You guys know this is the most coveted R&R blush, plus it's a discontinued shade so it's very hard to come by! It's my absolute favorite HG blush of all time and I bought an extra as a backup but honestly, the money will do someone else much more good than the blush can as a backup in my drawer. ;)


BeautyBloggers.org is the collaboration of almost 50 different beauty bloggers and brands. 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 (all items are new unless otherwise described). Winning bids will be donated directly to Doctors Without Borders. Bidders anywhere in the world are welcome, and shipping is “free.” That is, the full amount of your winning bid will go to charity — the bloggers have agreed to donate the cost of shipping, in addition to the items themselves.

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 about MSF.

We’ll be collecting payment through a secure page set up with Doctors Without Borders. They accept credit cards. International auction winners may have to use Paypal.

You can bid now through Monday, December 20 — this year’s auction ends at 5 pm CST.

I hope you guys can find some awesome products (not kidding, there are some incredddddiiible things up for auction) for yourselves or loved ones and promote a really selfless cause as well. ^_^

  9. Hi Jen, this is a great event for a noble cause. I think I may just participate in this auction. ;) But just something to note, you said the auction ends on December 20th at 5pm CST (3pm PST) but on your auction page the last day to bid is December 29th. Was this perhaps a typo?

  10. that's so weird that they have discontinued Call Me. It's my favorite (way better than NARS orgasm). This is a great contriubution on your part Jen.

  13. Hi Jen,

    I've been a follower of you blog for quite some time (I think I discovered your makeup tutorial a long time ago from soompi which eventually led me here!) and just wanted to drop you a comment on how wonderful I think it is that you're putting the power of your blog to such a great cause. It's heartwarming to see bloggers not so obsessed with getting the perfect shot of their shoes/makeup/outfit and use their ability to reach so many readers for a something like this charity. Please keep up the wonderful tutorials and fun posts! Your down to earth and genuine personality is something missing from so many of these popular blogs today, I applaud you for your work!

  14. i have a question.

    in your outfit posts, why do you write down the size of everything you're wearing? your shirt, your pants, your shoes, etc.

    you even state the size of your belt. what's the point of doing that?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Anonymous: I write the sizes in my fashion posts because I have quite a lot of petite blogger friends (I'm part of a petite blogger ring) and readers who are petites and they request knowing what size I'm wearing so they can get a sense of how the item might fit them as well. ^_^ All the petite bloggers do it and it helps out with shopping online a lot!
