Another new beauty must for your arsenal: Borghese Superiore State-of-the-Art Mascara.

BORGHESE

Birchbox Breakdown

Our days of chunky glitter gel may be long gone, but we’ll never outgrow the fresh, timeless look of a subtle shimmer. This skin brightener from luxury beauty line Borghese—which, speaking of timeless, was founded in the 1950s and built on a heritage dating back to the 14th century—can be smoothed on to create a variety of looks that span the glow spectrum, camouflaging imperfections for a flawless finish.

How it Works

The liquid formula’s light-diffusing pigments and delicate shimmer brighten any skin tone while they simultaneously conceal blemishes and fine lines.

How to Use

First, decide on your desired radiance level. For a high shimmer, apply after foundation; for a subtle shimmer, combine with foundation and apply to face; and for a more sheer look, mix with moisturizer and apply to face.

Great glow!

I would have never considered this product until it landed in my box. Great sample size that will last a while. I love that I can use this as a primer under a more flat foundation to impart a glow.

Fun product
Sampled

Has a very subtle shimmer that makes you feel a little fancy. Very lightweight, which I appreciate. I don't typically wear foundation...sometimes just a little powder. For me this is a perfect product if I want to dress my face up a little without caking on a bunch of products.

My mom loves it
Purchased

I bought BORGHESE Splendore Brightening Makeup for my mom. She loves this product. It made her face glow. I tried to use it and it made my face look dirty.

Good coverage

Product really helps to camouflage the one or two dark spots that I have on my chin - also adds a bit a shimmer that brightens my face

Shiny

So, I'm no where done with this product, I'm intrigued. But a little goes a long way. It's shiny for this low profile girl. Nice texture.

good product

It's a good product and works well, but just isn't for me. I don't like the shimmery look, I feel like it makes me look like a teenager at a rave lol
