Your Essential Guide to Boom Gloss
Have you ever bought lip gloss that looked beautiful in the tube…only to discover it was too much for you once you tried it on at home?
Too sticky. Too sparkly. Too drying. Too unnatural-looking. Too tacky.
We took all this into consideration when we designed Boom Gloss™.
This sophisticated, nourishing gloss provides just the right shine for any occasion.
Glam it up by adding a layer of Boom Gloss over your favorite lipstick (Boomstick Color, anyone?) on your dressiest evenings. You can also wear Boom Gloss on its own and enjoy a beautiful glow on casual days—while taking exquisite care of your lips at the same time.
And since we LOVE products that serve more than one purpose, our first–ever lip gloss doubles as a serum to provide hydration with gentle ingredients that make your lips feel as good as they look.
With a hypoallergenic clean-beauty formula and sustainable packaging, every detail of Boom Gloss, from the inside out, was designed with you and the planet in mind.

Boom Gloss FAQs
Q: How does it work with the other Boomsticks?
A: Boom Gloss and Boomsticks are like good girlfriends—they bring out the best in each other.
In fact, you can treat your lips to a mini-makeover using all three Boomsticks in our Boomstick Trio® with your Boom Gloss.
Apply Boomstick Glo® to clean lips and allow to absorb for a moment or two.
Dab on Boomstick Color® until you achieve your perfect tone.
Apply Boomstick Glimmer® to the center of your lips and your cupid’s bow.
Glide or dab on Boom Gloss last.
With two moisturizers and two creamy cosmetics, your lips will feel as beautiful as they look (while not looking overly made up).
If you choose, you could switch out Boomstick Color for Boomstick Rose Nude™ on days you feel like a more neutral color.
Q: How do I apply it–what’s the applicator like?
A: Boom Gloss has a slant-tip applicator, making it a breeze to apply with precision.
Specially designed for lip gloss, our ergonomic slant-tip applicator allows you to easily control how much gloss you apply and ensures even gloss distribution on your lips.
Choosing this applicator over a wand is also a more eco-friendly choice since it minimizes the materials needed.
To apply, simply remove the cap and gently squeeze the tube to dispense the desired amount of gloss.
Glide the applicator over your lips to distribute evenly.
Allow to absorb for a moment or two, then apply a second coat if you’d like to!
You can reapply after eating or drinking…or anytime you want.
With Boom Gloss, you’ll enjoy a sophisticated radiance that never feels sticky. Its nourishing ingredients mean you can reapply your Gloss as often as you like without worry. In fact, you’ll add more hydration every time you use it!
Q: Does Boom Gloss contain SPF?
A: No, but you can use it with your favorite lip-friendly sunscreen.
Boom Gloss does not contain SPF.
It does pair well with SPF products, however—including our nourishing, lip-friendly SPF 30+ sunscreen, Boom Sun™.
Ready for some fun in the sun? Here’s how to protect your lips…
Step 1 - At least 15 minutes before sun exposure, moisturize your lips with Boom Gloss (or Boomstick Glo if you prefer). Allow absorption for a moment or two.
Step 2 - Add a drop of Boom Sun to the palm of your hand, then use your fingertips to dab it across your lips, then let it dry.
Step 3 - Gently apply a top layer of Boom Gloss.
Step 4 - Repeat steps two and three after eating or drinking and every two hours while out in the sun.
Q: Does Boom Gloss have a scent or flavor?
A: Yes! Here’s why…
Boom Gloss has a subtle creamsicle scent and flavor that originates from two ingredients:
Orange oil: Besides reducing the appearance of inflammation and being packed with antioxidants, its scent is both uplifting and calming.
Vanillin: This molecule gives vanilla its familiar sweet fragrance and flavor. It may also provide cleansing properties as well as antioxidant activity. When combined with orange oil in Boom Gloss, it creates a match dreams are made of.
Q: How is Boom Gloss different from other glosses?
A: It was designed especially for long-lived lips.
Let’s face it: bodies change as they get older, including our lips.
There are hundreds of lip glosses out there designed to make lips look larger, thicker, wet or ultra-shiny.
That means some glosses contain questionable ingredients that cause sticky, gooey or even inflamed lips to make them appear bigger. Many also find that tacky glosses dry out their lips.
One Boom customer summed these glosses up in one word: “goopy.”
Boom Gloss could not be more different.
We made this pro-age gloss with sophisticated, nourishing attributes designed for older lips. That means Boom Gloss:
Moisturizes the drier lips many of us have as we age—rather than causing further dryness
Matches every complexion, outfit, season, occasion—so it’s the only gloss you’ll need
Adds a subtle shine for effortless everyday elegance—without feeling sticky or tacky
Is dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, gluten-free, cruelty-free and vegan—not filled with potentially harmful or questionable ingredients
Q: Is it glittery or sparkly?
A: No glitter here.
We skipped the sparkles. Instead, Gloss doubles as a serum, hydrating from the inside out to give your lips a healthy, glamorous finish you’ll love.
Dress up your look by applying this translucent gloss over your favorite lip color for sophisticated radiance for any occasion. Or use it au naturel anytime for nourishing hydration with a beautiful, casual glow.
Boom Gloss fan Nancy W. sums it up beautifully: “Perfect little shine.”
Q: What colors does it come in?
A: Peachy in the tube, translucent on the lips.
Our goal was to create a lip-loving gloss that fit every person and occasion—from casual to dressy.
Looking at your tube of Boom Gloss, you’ll see a gentle peachy tint. However, its sheer formula looks translucent on your lips to easily match every complexion.
Once applied, translucent Boom Gloss adds moisture and subtle shine to your lips anytime. You can also wear it over your favorite lip color (like Boomstick Color or Boomstick Rose Nude?) when you’d like to “zhush up” your look.
So the look you create with Boom Gloss is completely up to you!
Q: After I apply it, how long will it stay on?
A: Boom Gloss is a treat for your lips throughout the day.
This is not a gloss that sits on top of your lips until it rubs off. Instead, this pro-age lip gloss doubles as a serum, making your lips feel fabulous while looking their very best.
We designed Boom Gloss to provide lasting nourishment and subtle shine. Over the course of the day, you may wish to reapply when you’d like to freshen up your glow or add a bit more moisture.
After you’ve applied Boom Gloss, allow it to absorb for a few moments, then add a second layer. While your first layer provides that deep hydration, the second will keep you shining on!
Q: What makes Boom Gloss a “clean-beauty formula?”
A: In short, this means our lip gloss is made without toxic, irritating ingredients.
It also means transparent labeling, so you’ll know exactly what’s inside before you even open the Boom Gloss box to reach the tube inside.
Each ingredient in this formula is safe, non-toxic and certified cruelty-free by PETA. Boom Gloss contains no parabens, phthalates, PEG, silicone, soy or chemical irritants.
Like all Boom, our pro-age lip gloss is formulated in the USA.
Q: Can I see the ingredients before I buy?
A: Of course!
We hand-selected healthy, nourishing ingredients for our lip gloss. Its moisture and shine come from plant compounds and botanical oils.
