Whether you’re always on the go or just trying to keep your vanity organized, this fundamental pack will help kick your makeup hoarding habit to the curb—and put everything you need (and nothing more!) right at your fingertips.

not impressed with packaging
Purchased

The packaging is cheap and gaudy enough that I'd be embarrassed to use the products in public and/or have them out in my guest bathroom.

Bought to try the brand
Purchased

The products in the box were nicely packaged. Quality of products were all so so. Wasn't too impressed, and I havn't used much of anything in the box other than the blush brush which is nice.

Thrilled!
Purchased

I am completely satisfied with this purchase. All the products are high quality and worth the price. You really save with this package compared to if you purchased each item individually.

The brush is super soft! I really like that the blush and eye shadow require only a light swipe of the brush to pick up the colors. The lipsticks are soft and creamy. And the gloss! goes on smooth and lasts. Mascara does a good good covering all your lashes and doesn't clump.

I would purchase this again for myself and for others as a gift. It's wonderful.

Divine
Purchased

The eye shadow colors apply true. The lipsticks are soft and creamy. The blush brush was soft and divine. Borghese provides the perfect combination of products all in one box.

I'm very pleased with the high quality of everything I received. I now have a great basis for an every day makeup kit.

Loved it!
Purchased

This is a great set! It's a little pricey but the colors are fantastic and the quality is exceptional. I loved the gel makeup remover and the mascara is great. The blush was a little dark for me but everything else was awesome! I would buy this again.

Great set of products.
Purchased

This was a real pleasure to receive. It is very generous in size and good quality as well. The price is on the high side, but I bought it using points which reduced the price and it was free shipping. Also when you considered the full sizes and brand name, it would have been much more expensive bought individually. I should also add that the products are first rate in terms of color and performance It was a really great investment.
