(Review) New “Boomsticks”: Pro-Age Makeup Sticks for All Skin Tones

Creator of BOOMSTICKS!, Cindy Joseph, former makeup artist, was approached at the age of 49 by a casting agent to model for Dolce and Gabanna. She continues to travel the world modeling for clients such as Garnier, Olay, Elizabeth Arden as well as many fashion clients including Ann Taylor, Bloomingdales and Liz Claiborne. Cindy’s face has graced the covers and pages of Oprah, Glamour, Marie Clair and Mademoiselle. Her story is quite inspiring. Coming from a teenager worried about her “flaws” and going on to working with some of the top names as a celebrity makeup artist to a super model in what some consider “late in the game”.

Cindy wanted to share her philosophy and ideas with others and created her own makeup line, BOOMSTICKS! The first pro-age cosmetic line for those who accentuate their features, as you should, rather than cover up what you may think is a flaw.


“BOOM is for women who want to reveal their genuine beauty with an honest and realistic approach”

The BOOM makeup regime is very simple. Three sticks to accentuate your beauty.  COLOR works for all skin tones and works well when you apply it to places you naturally blush: cheeks, eyelids and lips. I personally love this BOOMSTICK! .

GLO is used to give a healthy glow to your face and body. It keeps moisture in and seals dryness out. It gives a nice shine. I do not recommend this particular stick for individuals with oily skin as it will only give more shine to your face.

GLIMMER is a lovely champagne color and adds a nice shimmer to any place on your face or body you’d like an extra special shimmer. How about your shoulders with that fabulous spring dress you just bought?

Cindy says “It’s time we wear our age openly and proudly. In purchasing this product you have joined me in the pro-age beauty revolution!” She goes on to say “ Your face reveals an individual life story. BOOM! is not about changing your features, looking younger or covering the beauty you have earned. BOOM! is for women who want to celebrate their age and wear it proudly” .

I personally love the concept of the BOOM! product line and find Cindy to be very inspiring.

I want to know your thoughts! Are you ready to reveal the beauty you have earned or do you feel more comfortable using products that will make you look younger?

BOOMSTICKS! retail for $24 per stick and can be purchased at www.boombycindyjoseph.com

What you’ve been wishing for this holiday season is all wrapped and ready for you …


  1. Really feel the bloomsilk body and the stick are not hydrating enough for very dry skin. The color when applied to the lips is very drying.

  2. Wow…what an incredible disappointment! $68 + $7.95 shipping = OUTRAGEOUS! This is for three little tubes weighing a total of 2.6 oz including the packaging (not the huge shipping box it came in). I could only guess how little actual product weight is here. This could have been shipped in a padded envelope via First Class padded envelope for $3.31 including Tracking or even a small box via Priority Mail for $5.15 including Tracking.

    The product itself is nothing new, this type of makeup has been around since the 1970’s that I remember and it came in much larger tubes

    Sweet deal for Cindy and I certainly don’t begrudge anyone making money, but it’s a lot of money for a lot of hype, marketing and fluff and WAY too much money for too little product.

    Adrien Arpel (years ago) used to offer the same product but in much larger tubes.

  3. Hi Cindy you have made up my mind to grow my grey hair out I love your look and your product

  4. The worse feature of BOOM lipsticks is that the product basically melts and turns into mush if your restroom is heated in winter time. The wide lipstick is difficult to apply. Then if you are able to apply it and clean around the mess, it starts melting, terrible. I contacted them, Joseph sent me another and it was the exact same problem. Mine are sitting in my bathroom closet, never used.

  5. As I have seen no indication of if the price is in American or Australian for the Boomsticks I am loth to order as with the American price the exchange and postage can be enormous – It a really interesting item and would like some feedback .
