      YOYO Lip Gloss wins ICMAD CITY Award for product package design innovation



                      This year YOYO Lip Gloss was honored to be invited to the 2010 ICMAD Awards. The award ceremony was in our home town, New York City! It was an amazing night from beginning to end. Everyone there seemed to be in the best of moods, it was a delightful atmosphere. What a fabulous experience! We got to meet tons of amazing people with great products. The big surprise was right smack in the middle of the ceremony when YOYO Lip Gloss received the City Award for Color Cosmetic Package Design! After receiving the award and making a brief acceptance speech, we sat back and enjoyed the rest of the enchanting night in disbelief. To say the least YOYO Lip Gloss would not be what it is without it’s dedicated fans and supporting consumers. To us life is about progress not perfection, and as long as we have a loving community behind us we hope to make such progress and continue to grow. We hope we can continue to give back as we reach new heights. YOYO would like to thank all of you for making this possible. We did it!

      YOYO Lip Gloss Commercial - Y - to - the - O, Y - to - the - O, that's the way we spell YOYO!



      The final cut to the YOYO Lip Gloss Commercial is complete! Special thanks to our cast and crew for an incredible production. Whats all the ranting and raving about? YOYO Lip Gloss is a retractable lip gloss that clips on for easy access; pull the cord and it extends 2 1/2 feet long, apply that delicious sparkle gloss and then back YOYO goes! Girls everywhere have been living by its motto to "clip it, twist it, squeeze it, wear it all day long and never lose their lip gloss again!"

      Composing this commercial has been an amazing journey. What started out as a mere concept was brought to life. All this would not have been possible without key people. Special thanks to my dear friend Christine Malfitano who initiated this brilliant idea, Mark from Expendable Plus & Brooklyn Studios for hosting our casting call and for putting me in contact with an amazing Director of Photography, Ski Piotr Jagninski. Dear Ski, thank you for the crash course in film production and also for putting together the most amazing team of grips, gaffers and camera crew.

      The day of the commercial shoot was magical and lead by the best AD a gal could ever ask for! Dear Paul, thanks for putting up with my insane request to film over 30 scenes in just 2 days! But we did it, and did it well!

      The days would not have run so smooth without key people including my wonderful mother making Greek pick me up coffees in the middle of the day, Jessica my PA who was at my beckon call and loved it, Lady Life who sang Y to the O Y to the O over and over again on set to compensate for our broken ipod, SeanD'Alesio who filled in the gap for every missing hand on the set, and of course James Arbona, the only producer who would run to Home Depot to personally make a dolly at 2 am the night before the shoot!

      The YOYO Commercial had the best choreographers around! Special thanks to Lori & Life for training these girls like they were your own children.

      Our hair and makeup girls were absolutely superb! Special thanks to Martina, Dawn Marie, and Maria for making everyone look totally outta control!

      A big YOYO goes out to Amy Schlossberg for the blood, sweat and tears devoted to making some fresh YOYO outfits! Many shout outs to Pastry, Puma, Apple Bottom and All Star for providing super cool gear for our YOYO Girls to wear. But what good are clothes without a person to dress them? That glory all goes to the YOYO Stylist Mama Jen Barrett and her assistant Melanie Causon who brought all the characters to life.

      Special thanks to Angel for making the hottest YOYO beat, rough cut editor Doug for putting it all together and special, special thanks to the most wonderful after effects editor Dave Nicholson! Dear Dave, you truly poured your heart and soul into the YOYO commercial and for that I will be forever thankful! You made this spot more incredible then what I envisioned it to be.

      The most important members of the commercial shoot were by far the cast who did an unbelievable job of rockn' their YOYO Lip Glosses. Special thanks to cast and families!

      Several YOYO commercials will be released; we filmed for two long days! More incredible YOYO Spots to come. Stay tuned to our web site www.yoyolipgloss.com for details.

      God Bless

      YOYO Lip Gloss CEO to Speak at the Open Innovation Summit in Miami

      Hey chicas!! I am about to go to an incredible conference and I am soooo excited to tell you about it!! I’m getting geared up for the Open Innovation Summit. This is the mecca for people who want the simple idea that they have created into a business to just… explode! It’s going to be December 2-4, 2009 in Orlando, FL.

      What is it about? Presenters take you beyond the “Why” to the “How” in giving strategy on how to develop a successful business with your innovation. Why come? Well I’ll just mention Proctor and Gamble who will be speaking on how to brand yourself, Mozilla on how to use web tools, and Xerox on how to use spin-offs.. just to name a few!! But wait.. I didn’t tell you the best part… I WAS ASKED TO SPEAK!!! How awesome is that??

      They claim and this event truly is the “Who’s Who” of innovation. For Yo Yo Lip Gloss, and as the CEO, I don’t want to miss any opportunity where I can maximize a moment to better who we are as a company. We started as a simple idea but we aren’t staying there. We are growing and maturing into the best we can possibly be. Hearing and learning from the best has always been something I’ve done. And now look? I’m asked to speak. From a simple thought of a lip gloss on a string, my whole nationwide company.. as well as in some other nations .. has been born. It’s limitless where your dreams can take you.

      If you have an idea or are running a start up business off of a patented invention or innovation, I encourage you to consider being a part of this awesome conference. For more info, here’s the website: www.worldrg.com/openinnovation. Also if you sign up and type in the code KTP993 you will get an additional $300 off. Hope to see you there!!

      Mass' Latest Innovation: Lip Gloss on a String

      Check out this amazing article published by Women's Wear Daily about YOYO Lip Gloss & CEO! For the full effect, buy a subscription to WWD



      Mass' Latest Innovation: Lip Gloss on a String

      by Faye Brookman

      Posted Friday July 31, 2009

      From WWD Issue 07/31/2009

      NEW YORK — Stockkeeping optimization has resulted in a few inches of footage available in mass market doors, and a young entrepreneur is out to nab some of that real estate.

      Just a few years out of business school, 30-year-old Angie Parlionas has created a line called YoYo Lip Gloss. Her story is reminiscent of the legendary Hard Candy founder Dineh Mohajer, who launched a breakthrough beauty line from her home (Recently, Hard Candy was repositioned as a mass line and will enter Wal-Mart stores later this year). She also embodies the spirit of Fun creator Kristin Penta, who tried to court more teens to the mass market.

      The reality is today’s marketplace is tougher to crack than in the free-spending Nineties, but Parlionas believes her ideas are unique enough to convince buyers to give her a shot.

      Her first item is a lip gloss attached to a clip, and the concept came out of necessity — much like Mohajer and her blue nail color to match her blue sandals. “I was really into sports and could never find my lip gloss in my bag,” said Parlionas over a recent lunch. Having studied successful product launches at St. Johns University, Parlionas decided to put her theory into practice and invented the YoYo Lip Gloss. By affixing a string to a clip, Parlionas invented a gloss users can easily find. “I knew it had to be more than cute and clever, but also a great formula, and I worked with experts on the formulas and flavors,” she said.

      YoYo Lip Gloss Minis are available in four flavors — Girly Green Apple, Cha-Cha Chocolate, Big Bounce Bubble Gum and Kissable Kiwi, retailing for $2.99. A larger lip gloss retails for $4.99 and is available in the Minis’ flavors as well as Bodacious Blueberry, Crazy Cotton Candy, Power Packing Pineapple and Super Strawberry Cheesecake.

      Realizing retailers need more than one item to justify space, Parlionas has created an entire line set for launch in spring, which includes an SPF lip balm, blush, eye shadow and nail polish. Prices range from $2.99 for a mini lip gloss to about $7 for a nail polish. Each item has a unique property such as a key chain for the balm.

      Also, Parlionas knows the power of promotion and is shooting 30-second TV spots set to air on MTV and Nickelodeon using real girls who were culled from a casting call to describe what teens loved about their gloss. The tag line plays off the YoYo idea: “Never at a Loss for Your Gloss.”

      YoYo is obviously a young brand, but the target market is older teens. “You can always get younger girls to want to go up, but not the other way around,” Parlionas said.

      The lip gloss already has attracted attention in apparel chains such as Rainbow and Joyce Leslie as well as independents in several major markets, and the young founder has her sights set on a major chain. She says she knows the risks and cost of entry associated with mass chains and that won’t deter her from trying to be the next hot item that could perhaps get the teen engine purring again. “Although a lip gloss on a string might sound like a minor breakthrough, so was a blue nail polish and look what that did,” said one buyer.
