First, I have to say that when I received my order for Colorstick, it wasn't in the box! I was devastated! I immediately emailed the Boom website and explained what happened ;received a very sweet reply from Cindy, who said she would follow up as it had happened before, and that she would overnight another. The next day my Colorstick arrived as promised ....now that is great customer service! I love the color, texture, and the glow as demoed in SWC vids. I will buy BoomSilk next, and am now not only an addicted fan, but a loyal customer!EDIT- I recently ordered the BOOMstick trio and will review later. Still love my Color; gave my Tarte Blushing Bride to my daughter!
I have actually had this for over a year (Boomstick color) and it has slowly become the "go to" item in my makeup kit. The color, well described by other reviewers looks very natural on my NW20 skin, and on my pigmented lips is really MLBB. I wear it most casual days on my cheeks and lips and occasionally near my eyes and forehead area. I use it several times a week and it's over a year old; I still have 1/3 of a tube left. I would definitely order again, it's easy, natural and lasts at least 4 hours without reapplying. Today I was running late and only wore the boomstick color on my cheeks and lips, eyebrow powder and mascara and two different people commented that I looked younger. Good enough for me! I will definitely order the glimmer and glo sticks next time. Although it seems to be marketed to the older woman, I think anyone who likes a casual, natural look would like this.
UPDATE: Still wearing, although I use it more on my lips than on my cheeks. It's a great color for my lips. I alternate it with Tarte Cheek Stains, which offer so many color choices. But's it is still a "go to" item in my cosmetic collection, especially on minimal makeup days.
Cindy Joseph promises much and she delivers. Boomstick Color is satisfying simple. It's foolproof and imparts a beautiful, authentic flush of colour. It's divine as a blush - soft and sheer, and it allows the natural skin tone to show through, yet it lasts. It looks pretty on my lips and feels like a cross between a lipstick and a lipbalm. Surprisingly, it works on my eyelids as well. To warm my complexion up a bit more, I also use it where I might otherwise apply bronzer. It's fun to experiment with. Boomstick Color is a good thing in a small package. It's perfect for holidays, perfect for when time is short, perfect for a guaranteed beauty boost. In my book, it's perfect full stop.
Boom! is a new, minimalist cosmetic line developed by makeup artist and model Cindy Joseph. There are currently 3 products available: a Color Stick, a Glo Stick (for moisture), and Glimmer Stick (a highlighter). I believe these are currently only available online. I'm reviewing the Boomstick Color ($24), which I really like. When I'm in need of a highlighter or moisturizer, I won't hesitate to order the rest of her line.
It's a creamy gel formulation with a *very* mild vanilla scent that dissipates quickly. The color is a sheer, brownish, neutral rose-red shade, which looks very dark in the tube, but don't let that worry you! It can be used on cheeks, eyes, lips and is recommended for other areas too (at the hairline, down the center of the neck). It applies quickly, easily, and smoothly, and the lasting power on skin is terrific. I have never been able to use anything touted as a "universal" shade before, but this one works for me, perhaps because the sheerness lets skin tone come through. It also gives a nice MLBB flush to the lips. Adds an overall natural glow and brightens the face.
Boomstick Color comes in a small (2 1/2" long x 1" wide) metal case. The cap clicks on firmly and stays on, making it perfect for carrying around in a bag or pocket.
Boom! is marketed towards women over 40, but anyone who wants a quick wash of natural color could use this.
