Monday is St. Patrick's Day, meaning that in addition to painting your nails green this weekend, you should stock up on whatever your hangover cure of choice is. Because unless drinking excessively on a Monday night is so important to you that you've already taken Tuesday off, you're going to need it.
Knowing this, cheeky cosmetics brand Benefit teamed up with TaskRabbit, a website that allows users to hire locals to perform errands, on a hangover kit. On Tuesday morning, if you're not feeling your best, you can simply tweet @BenefitBeauty with the hashtag #LuckyBoost between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. local time to request a hangover cure package. TaskRabbits will then hand deliver a selection of Benefit goodies, including They’re Real mascara and Fakeup hydrating concealer, as well as slightly more practical treats like dry shampoo, pain relievers and snacks.
Unfortunately for us New Yorkers, this service will only be available in Chicago, Boston and San Francisco. But if you do live there, it's totally free -- people who tweet within the allotted time will be randomly selected to receive the kit.
It's a cute idea, and one that will likely expose TaskRabbit to a whole new group lazy and/or busy potential female clients.
