After flying into to NYC Yago Blu stops by her favorite 99cent pizza stand for two slices of pizza, a can of Sunkist Orange Soda and Avocado from the deli two blocks down before heading to a social media photo shoot created by fans to kick off the STAY PRETTY campaign. The "STAY PRETTY" campaign includes the creation of tweets of the YAGOLICIOUS WALL of wall and a limited-edition STAY PRETTY t-shirt.
"I can't quite believe that it's been 6 years since we launched Yagolicious Cosmetics. Blu laughs with her team of makeup artist at the memory of launching the brand one minute before midnight on November 7, 2009. "I don't remember why I had a pre-written hand picked list of those whom I accepted as customers and refunds for those who weren't on the list! She shook her head still giggling saying "I suppose I was just use to the New York style of "VIP". I feel like a gigantic flower that has bloomed in the middle of New York! The Yagolicious fans and customers have spoiled me! I'm incredibly fortunate for their tweet assistance in colors for collections, the voting polls for celebrity collaborations and the hugs at the annual Yagolicious Beauty Affair! Creating a cosmetic line has been a teenage dream of mine and I'm constantly in awe of the library of color swatches that the YAGOLICIOUS team has been creating since 2009.
