Birchbox Breakdown

When we hear words like “nourish” and “conditioning,” the first product that comes to mind isn’t typically mascara. Borghese’s Superiore State-of-the-Art Mascara has arrived to shift our frame of reference. (We would expect nothing less from the luxury brand, which has a deep-rooted heritage dating back to the 14th century, yet is continuously innovating.) This long-lasting formula not only lengthens, separates, and curls, it moisturizes and strengthens lashes too, thanks to the brand’s exclusive Acqua di Vita "Living Water" Complex®. Superiore, indeed.

How it Works

A silk-powder foundation binds to lashes for extended wear and definition—and no flaking, smudging, or clumping. The Acqua di Vita "Living Water" Complex®, a unique blend of minerals and botanicals, adds moisture and conditions. Available in black and waterproof black.

How to Use

Wiggle brush from lash base to tip.

Just not for me
Purchased

Seems to go on a little to thick for me. The brush just doesn't seem to separate the lashes very well.

Length, length, length

This mascara was great for giving my eyelashes length and no eyelash curler need for me! I liked how my eyelashes were separated but it didn't give me as much volume as I hope it would.

So So

Ok for mascara but didn't think it was anything special...it was slightly clumpy when applied and did not seem to last all day either...

Decent

This is an okay mascara, but nothing really stood out for me. I like big, full lashes and this gave length but not volume. I like my drugstore mascara better

No Clumping

I enjoyed the easy application. There was no clumping so did not have to use a lash comb after applying. Nice black color, but doesn't seem to last that long.

Love this mascara!!!

Honestly, I did not like this when I first received it. After trying it again, it is now my go-to mascara. It's a great lengthening mascara for everyday use. It does not add a ton of volume, but definitely lengthens!

Good but not great

I am very picky with mascara and I agree that this is a good product that did not clump or flake, but to me it did not seem better than some of the department store brands I use. I keep it in my travel case now in case I forget my usual product when I am rushing to catch a plane

Great mascara for lengthening
Purchased

I really like this mascara. I think it lengthens and separates my lashes better than most other brands. I am pretty picky about the brands that I choose, but this one passes the test. I would definitely order it again.

Good but not great

It went on smooth and stayed all day, but I feel like it flattened out my lashes. It has a curved applicator that made application very easy, but may have been the reason for my lashes uncurling.

Nice, Long Wear

The mascara followed the description, it definitely lasted throughout the day. It was a nice surprise and change up from my old trusty brand.
