BORGHESE Splendore Brightening Makeup

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.

Don't care for shimmery face stuff. May be fun on my shoulders at a formal event but not on my face.

too shimmery
Sampled

I wanted to like this product but it was just too much shimmer for my lighter skin. Plus Parabans? No thank you. I'm surprised it was included in my box.

Not for me
Sampled

I don't like heavy make up. No matter how I applied it it was just "too much". I have very high prominent cheek bones and an angular face so I think it was overkill for me.

O.K. As A Highlighter
Sampled

The description says, "subtle shimmer," but I looked like a fairy with a glittery face. I used it as highlighter and it worked O.K. but it is not for all over by any means.

Does not really do....anything.

When I received this product I was so excited. I couldn't wait to try it. Then I did. Well I could not for the life of me see any change in my skin. I even put my glasses on thinking it must be me not being able to see. Then I asked my husband and he could not see anything either. IDK I tried. I guess this product is not for me.

Glitter? Yuck
Sampled

I really did not like this product. I have an aversion to glitter and really hate it in my makeup products. The shimmer just isn't for me.

Love how this mixed with my current foundation to give me a nice subtle glow.

I hoped to like this but it was really shimmery & looked shines on my face. Not a fan and wouldn't purchase in full size.
