Find Of The Month: LAQA&CO

I think one of the best parts of writing this blog is finding an awesome idea, only to have it explode into something that much more awesome. Today’s gift suggestion is one such venture.

I stumbled across LAQA&CO in the last month and was immediately taken by their super convenient Nail Polish Pens. Not only do they make application a breeze, they’re super easy to store, and even toss in your purse for on-the-go touch-ups. I also love that they come in a rainbow of both unexpected (like canary yellow) and traditional (like cherry red) shades, meaning you can find a great shade for every gal on your shopping list. At $15 a pop they are perfect for birthdays, stocking stuffers, or big day bridesmaid gifts.

Now here’s where things get awesome. As you’ve probably noticed, this stuff comes in really, really pretty packaging. In fact, every item has its own special complementary case. Where does that awesome artwork come from you’re asking? Dozens of up-and-coming artists have teamed up with LAQA&CO to have their designs featured front & centre – and they also earn a percentage of the profits from every product sold. So not only are you gifting your friend with an awesome product, you’re giving them a little slice of art (and supporting the art community to boot). See what I mean about how great this is?

Now if you’re gift shopping for someone that can’t ‘do’ nail polish because of their career (I shed a tear for you), you can also check out the brand’s chunky Fat Lip Pencils. They come in a classic palette that goes from rich burgundy to sparkling coral and last a lifetime. Just toss it in your purse and have a long-lasting pop of colour ready to go at a moment’s notice. Much like the Nail Polish Pens, these are well-priced for gift-giving at $19.95 and will bring a smile to any beauty bombshell’s face. Between the two products, I’m sure you’ll find plenty of gift-giving ideas for your loved ones (and one or two things you love yourself), which is why it’s extra awesome that you’ll earn free shipping with just a $50 minimum purchase.

Of course, what would a beauty boutique be without some gift sets? If you’re shopping for your sister’s birthday or Mother’s Day, why not give her one of these sweet goodie boxes packed with a mixture of the brand’s best-selling and complementary shades. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Find Of The Month without hooking up you beauties with the chance to take home some of these goods for yourself. I’m giving away the ‘In A Big Country‘ gift set pictured above, which includes a red-hot nail pen, top coat, chunky cherry lip pencil, and two remover pads to keep your look quite literally polished from head to toe. To enter:

1) Visit LAQA&COand leave a comment below on which shade of nail polish or lip pencil you’d most like to own, until midnight on March 31st, 2012.

2) Entries are limited to one per person / per email address / per household (or more if you score bonus entries). A random draw will be conducted on or around April 1st to select the winner, who will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen in their place.

3) Entries are limited to Canadians that have reached the age of majority in their province. Quebec is not eligible to participate in this promotion.

4) Bonus Entry Time Parts 1&2: I really want you guys to have the best shot possible, so there are THREE ways to earn bonus entries this month. The first, is to like LAQA&CO on Facebook and leave your FB username in the comments below. The second is to follow LAQA&CO on Twitter, and leave your Twitter handle in the comments below. You can earn both of these bonus entries by posting the info within your initial comment, no need for separate comments!

5) Bonus Entry Time Part 3: The THIRD way you can earn bonus entries is pretty simple. It involves referring your pals – an unlimited number in fact. Whether you want to send out an email, post to your FB wall, or write in your blog, just send your friends and family over to this blog and have them leave a comment on this post, referencing that you referred them. They’ll earn an entry into the draw, and you’ll earn a bonus entry as well. Keep in mind – I can see your IP addresses. So it’s pretty easy for me to tell when you’re faking a friend referral (how sad for you). GOOD LUCK!
