YoYo Lip Gloss Review and Giveaway

I recently received a package of 4 YOYO mini lip gloss's in the mail!  I was anxious to do this review because my niece LOVES lip gloss and all those fun lip treatments!   I was hoping I could find something unique and NEW for her!

Big Bounce Bubblegum, Cha-Cha Chocolate, Girly Green Apple, Kissable Kiwi

When I received the package, I was impressed by the shipping.  Small recyclable cardboard box with cute pink recyclable paper strips!  I am always impressed with a company that uses eco-friendly shipping materials!

Here is some info about the inventor: 

Angie Parlionas — Meet the Gal Behind the Gloss 
A shiny, lip-smacking, marvelous mouth doesn’t happen overnight. Enter the guru with a
goal to gloss every girls’ kisser, coast to coast: YOYO Lip Gloss founder, creator and producer, Angie Onassis Parlionas.

Raised in a family with deep roots in business and entrepreneurial ventures, this born-and-bred New Yorker honed her own skill set during both her undergraduate and graduate studies at St. Johns University, where, as a top student with a stellar GPA, she earned a BA and, later, her MBA in Executive Management. A pioneer and leader both in and out of the classroom, Angie’s experiences on campus led to the birth of her famed new invention, YOYO Lip Gloss.

A fan of makeup since age five, Angie knows her way around a vanity. Thus, it didn’t take long for her to realize a void in the cosmetics arena: the lost lipgloss. (Every girl knows the frustration of being unable to find her favorite gloss, only to finally discover it hidden in her tote, drawer or gym bag.) This revelation birthed Angie’s genius design of a gloss that can’t become a lost lip product (and is always easily found). It clips onto anything – from belt loop to shoulder strap, locker to Louis clutch – so you’re never at a loss for your gloss.

Together with a team of experienced, energized chemists and makeup manufacturers, Angie coined and claimed an end result … YOYO Lip Gloss. With key concept in tow and a recently-published case study to follow suit, this young entrepreneur travels worldwide to help and encourage business students follow their dreams. 

My Review:  I love putting lip gloss on that has a yummy scent!  Weird how it really tastes like the scent is supposed to smell!  I love the retractable clip for the lip gloss. It will be perfect for the purse, diaper bag, or work jacket.   All of the scents smell just like I would expect them.  I don't feel like they leave a super sticky lip print when I am drinking from my water glass. It did give my lips a nice shine and shimmer!  (Something they don't see very often at all!)  

My only complaint is when I put on the lip gloss on my chapped lips it tingled for the whole time it was on there.  When I contacted the company, they told me they had a special "cooling" formulation in their lip gloss. It might feel good normally, but not on my chapped lips.

Overall, I am happy with these YOYO Lip Gloss Mini's!
