Props! to Glimmersticks

If you are male, feel free to skip this post.


I’ve never understood those women who don’t wear makeup. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with not wearing makeup, I just don’t understand it. Maybe I have self esteem issues. Maybe I just don’t like scaring small children. I don’t know.


If I had to narrow my morning routine down to three items, they would be as follows:


First, moisturizer. In an effort to postpone the inevitable turkey-neck, I moisturize daily. I change types and brands each time I complete a tub. Although I’m trying to go all-Avon, so I’m just testing each of their moisturizing options. I’m not sure how anyone doesn’t moisturize. Besides the preventative advantages, it just feels lovely! If I skip this step, my face feels like it’s going to break.


Second, some sort of powder. Currently, I’m using a Cream to Powder product. (Also Avon.) I think this step would be necessary! I’m not a senior citizen so I don’t know the true definition of the phrase, but I guess that this would be the step that means to “put your face on.”


Finally, eyeliner. Specifically Glimmersticks. This eyeliner rocks. Ignore the name. It’s not sparkly or shimmery or glimmery. It’s normal, self sharpening, wonderful eyeliner. I discovered this eyeliner a couple years ago. A woman I worked with sold Avon. I was tired of my crappy pencil that dulls so quickly. So I thought I’d give it a shot. I loved it. So much so that when I quit my job, I started selling Avon so that I could always have access to this eyeliner. It’s cheap and they have it in multiple colors. I think they have a skinny tip version and I think they also just came out with a waterproof version. I use the plain ‘ol black.

The queen of my makeup world.

Does anyone else use Glimmersticks and love it? Anyone want to try? Have a product that you swear by?
