At BOOM!, we love simplicity.
It’s why we designed our Boomstick Trio. With our Trio, you get a lipstick, eyeshadow, blush, highlighter, bronzer, and a full-body moisturizer—in three simple, easy-to-use cosmetic sticks.
Together, you can use these little “Boomsticks” to create a natural look for yourself that brings out your beauty, while still looking like YOU. (It’s why women of all ages love our Trio.)
Even better: You can use these three Boomsticks to create this natural look in 10 minutes or less. Read on to find out how.
No matter what makeup you use, we always suggest you moisturize your face before applying your makeup.
The first Boomstick in our Trio, Boomstick Glo, lets you quickly moisturize your face in less than a minute. Simply remove the cap and roll this Boomstick all over your face.
By moisturizing first with Boomstick Glo, you get well-hydrated, soft skin to apply your makeup. But more importantly, you also protect your body.
That’s because our all-natural Boomstick Glo contains beeswax. This beeswax creates a protective barrier between your body and any toxins you encounter throughout the day.
Boomstick Glo also gives your skin a healthy radiance that many of our Boom customers prefer over traditional concealer or foundation.
However, if you DO choose to wear foundation, apply a moisturizer like Boomstick Glo first. Then we suggest using a creamy foundation that won’t accentuate any lines or other texture on your face.
If you’re using foundation, let it dry for three minutes. Wearing just Boomstick Glo? Keep going! No need to wait.
Next comes Boomstick Color.
Boomstick Color has a sheer berry color, that matches every woman’s skin tone. It’s mimics the look of happiness we get when we blush.
That’s why this one Boomstick gives every woman such a natural look of happiness, health, vitality and joy.
You can use Boomstick Color to highlight all the places you naturally blush including your cheeks, forehead, lips, neck, and décolleté.
Apply Boomstick Color to your cheekbones first. Dab rather than swipe, so you can experiment with how much to add. Use your fingers to blend it in. Then dab a little on your forehead, the sides of your neck, and add a small amount to highlight your décolleté.
Take a look at your skin. Too light? Add some more. Too dark? Use a tissue to remove and then reapply.
Once you have the color you want, dab a little Boomstick Color on your lips last. By applying it to your lips last, you can determine exactly how light or dark you want your lips to be, in relation to the other places you already applied Boomstick Color.
Last but not least, Boomstick Glimmer.
Boomstick Glimmer is a glistening champagne color, that works with every woman’s skin color. It gives your skin a subtle-looking sparkle, without adding glitter or frost—that works for daytime and nighttime.
You can use Boomstick Glimmer to highlight any part of your body.
You can apply this shimmery color to the sides of your eyes, eyelids, lips, neck, and possibly your décolletée. (It’s up to you! Experiment and have fun.)
If you have already applied Boomstick Color, you may just want to dab Boomstick Glimmer on your eyelids or the sides of your eyes. This hint of sparkle around your eyes completes your natural look!
That’s it! You’re ready to head out the door in 10 minutes, or less.

The whole idea behind BOOM! is less is more. Women shouldn’t have to be slaves to dozens of different makeup products—especially in their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond.
You should be able to simplify your makeup routine, and pare down to just a few items that allow you to look your best. That’s why our late founder, Cindy Joseph, originally created BOOM! and our line of three creamy cosmetic sticks—known as “Boomsticks”—that can easily replace everything in your makeup bag.
BOOM! is the sound of a revolution in cosmetics. Whereas other cosmetic companies are constantly adding products, we are taking them away.
While other skin care and makeup companies carry “anti-aging” products, BOOM! is the only company that is “PRO-AGE.” And we are not the only ones who think age is beautiful.
Jennifer Aniston believes in aging gracefully and not overdoing it on the makeup. When asked by Self Magazine what is in her purse when she leaves for the day, she said, “Boomstick Color: It’s an all-in-one stain for eyes, cheeks and lips that’s so much fun.”
“There is this pressure in Hollywood to be ageless,” said Aniston. “I also understand that age is kind of awesome... Don’t over-product — that’s the other thing.”
The Boom products come in identical white tubes that fit in the palm of your hand. Boomstick Color, a sheer berry for cheeks, brow bone, eyes, lips, forehead, neck and decollete; Boomstick Glimmer, a sheer iridescent champagne for the sides of the eye, eyelids, cheekbones, shoulders and decollete; Boomstick Glo, an olive oil and beeswax moisturizer for lips, cuticles, around the eyes, and anywhere else you can use quick moisturizing touch-ups.
Our late founder, Cindy Joseph, created our original Boom cosmetics and skin care line. As a makeup artist for 27 years, Cindy had unique insight into exactly how to bring out every woman’s natural beauty at every age. Cindy always said: “As women age, looking fresh, rather than made up, is the key.”
“The biggest makeup mistake that middle-aged women make is putting on too much under eye concealer,” Cindy used to say. “At home, it might look OK, but in the daylight, it just looks like a bunch of gunk under your eyes. The older you get, the less makeup you should wear. It ’s not a blank canvas anymore.”
Long before Cindy founded BOOM!, she had two very successful careers—first as a makeup artist, and then as a silver-haired supermodel.
Cindy began her 27-year career as a makeup artist in San Francisco in the late ’70s, working for Macy’s, Esprit de Corp and others. It was there she pioneered the first “natural look” for women— which would later become the inspiration for our Boom cosmetics.
At age 49, Cindy let her hair go gray, and just like that, she was spotted on a New York sidewalk by a scout for the fashion photographer Steven Miesel and began her career as a silver-haired supermodel. Over the next two decades, she was featured in ads for Target, L.L. Bean, Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, Olay, Nivea and others.
In her early 60s, she went into the cosmetics business herself with BOOM! After nearly three decades as a makeup artist, Cindy wanted to create the exact cosmetics she would want in her own makeup kit. As a silver-haired supermodel, she wanted to design a line of cosmetics that was not about hiding, but was about revealing a woman’s natural beauty at every age. We are proud to say: she succeeded. The overall effect is a dewy, natural look that’s ideal for every age.
Cindy’s pro-age legacy lives on in the hundreds of thousands of women worldwide who follow her pro-age philosophy, and wear Boom cosmetics and skin care.
“By far this is the best ‘make-up’ for women over 40. I feel the need to brighten up just a little. Time is showing on my face, which is beautiful, but a splash of Boom is the perfect accompaniment of a wonderful life.” — Susan
