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?

    I think you just sold me on the cream to powder stuff (I never use powder…just liquid foundation) as well as the Glimmersticks. I usually skip eyeliner because I think it is a pain and my eyeliner (I use some by Clinique) is always dull. It’s supposed to be self-sharpening I think, but it’s not.

    I always have to have lip gloss nearby. I love by C.O. Bigelow gloss. I used to use Lip Venom, but it was so expensive and I was always losing it, so I switched to the slightly cheaper C.O. Bigelow stuff and haven’t looked back.

    I LOVE GLIMMERSTICKS! but I like the green one! But I don’t just use Avon…I have about 7 different colors and brands of eyeliners.

    I would try the glimmerstick. Though, I must say, I NEVER wear make up. But, sometimes I put on a moisturizer in the summer days if it’s really dry. I don’t really feel the need to wear make up. I never have. =P

    Lindsay- You commented twice. Nerd.

    Amanda- We aren’t all as hot as you with perfect skin and long dark eyelashes!

    Ashley- The normal price is $6.00 but I always get them on sale for like $2.99.

    Sarah- Let’s not get started on my lip gloss issues!

    I need to try glimmersticks. I’ve always hated eyeliner because i SUCK at putting it on! Haha and you can laugh at the one product I swear by: brow fix! yea my eyebrows are kind of curly, so they look aweful without it.

    I LOVE makeup. I’m with you, I’ve never “got” people who don’t wear it–not necessarily because I think they should, but mostly just because I wish I felt so ballsy. I really don’t like going out without “my face on” b/c I don’t feel too confident. Anyway. You’re brave for switching it up on the moisturizers. I find something that works and stick w/it because I’m too scared of breakouts!
