We've been majorly crushing on 63-year-old model Cindy Joseph since August, when she told us about her inspiring pro-aging philosophy and let us photograph her in a park. We also love her makeup line, BOOM!, so we thought it was time to introduce our favorite product from it. Okay, maybe it's three products, but the Boomstick Trio is a full set of wonderfulness that's about to get us through the week.
The set includes three travel-sized, paraben-free, multipurpose cream sticks. They're basically all you need for a complete look. First comes Boomstick Glo, an organic moisturizer that can be used anywhere from your eyelids to your hands. It's made with olive oil, beeswax, and vitamin E, among other simple, natural goodies. It dries to a silky-smooth finish and provides a great base for makeup.
The other two products, a blush and a highlighter, work like magic on skin of all tones and ages. The blush, called Boomstick Color, is a sheer, berry shade that finishes just like a natural flush. It doubles as a lipstick, too, for a rosy monochromatic look. The highlighter, Boomstick Glimmer, has been giving our faces a pearlescent sheen since we started swiping it atop our cheekbones and our brow bones like addicts.
The best part? This tiny set lets us ditch the jam-packed makeup bag to travel with essentials only. Moisturized skin that's pinky and radiant with just three products? Doesn't get more essential than that.
Bonus: If you go to the BOOM! site, you'll find a video tutorial in which Joseph applies the Boomsticks to herself and gives some helpful tips for when you (inevitably) try them out. Plus, she's just so beautiful and nice we kind of can't stop watching.
