It's been a long long time since I've had any products from Borghese. I love their products! This was such a joy to get in my box! Has a great feel and looks amazing. I have pale skin and this made it look really nice. I got a lot of compliments even at the grocery store when I first tried it. It made me feel good to get noticed. People are busy and don't usually pay attention anymore.
Loved this sample
I loved the dewy (not shiny or sparkly) finish this gave! Easy to apply and blends well. With or with foundation.
Its nice, just not for me I guess. Felt odd putting a very thick liquid on my face. Pretty result though.
I use this makeup as a top coat before going out to brighten my complexion and made my eyes / cheeks pop. It makes you instantly sun kissed and glowing.
I got this sample, and I tried it a few times - It just doesn't do it for me. Its kind of thick and left this odd shimmer on my skin. I will use it on my shoulders and things, but not my face.
I feel like this product isn't quite sure what it wants to be (or maybe I'm just not sure?) It is FAR too shimmery to use as a foundation-- I tried applying it like a foundation once and looked like a bronzed disco ball. Even applying a bit over CC cream or moisturizer was way too much for me. I think it's best used as a highlighter-- just a bit on the cheekbones, browbone, and above the lip-- but did not end up purchasing because I think other products achieve the effect better (e.g. Nars the Multiple).
Although the instructions say to use all over, don't! You will look like you rolled in shimmer. It's ok if you use a dab to brighten your cheeks. But it is darker and more shimmery than expected. A little goes a long way!
Love this product!
I got this product in a Birchbox and since I do not wear foundation I thought it would be wasted on me. How wrong was I! I have loved using it each morning as I get ready for school as a light sheer brightener before I apply my makeup. A little goes a LONG way....I think anyone that tries it will love it....it is not thick and cakey like a heavy cover. Give this product a try!
Nice, all over glow
Other reviewers have said this is a bit heavy, but I've found that - when mixed in when a light moisturizer - it's not weighty at all. The overall effect is quite pretty, as long as you don't use too much. Even going overboard just a small amount can result in too much look, at least for the daytime.
I love the way it highlights my face, but it is a little heavy. And it leaves my face a bit oily by the end of the night.
