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.

Summertime shimmer
Sampled

A great shimmery effect - would be best used in summertime or spring. Sample size was quite large. All in all, a great product!

Really did brighten my skin!
Sampled

I liked this. Went on smooth and thin- not too thick. Just wished the coverage was a little better. Might need to use over my regular foundation, as per instructions.

Made my pale skin glow
Sampled

It's winter, and my normally pale, frekled skin was even paler than usual. This added a bit of a glow and shine as I used it under sheer makeup or just poweder. I tried all over and just highlighter. The latter was better for me. Definitely a great thing to try.

Liquid Brightening Shimmer

Nice product! Great to add to your foundation for some playful/reflective sheen and shimmer. Love to place this on my cheekbones for natural looking contour.

It's okay

I dont really use shimmer often so I really can't say. But it does add a nice glow to my face when I go out.

Shiny and glowing
Sampled

I like the effect of mixing this with regular liquid makeup. It makes skin look like its glowing. Almost a sun kissed effect. I like it a lot. Size of the sample is awesome as well. I will be using that for long time.

Beautiful!
Sampled

Okay, so the texture takes some getting used to, and I'm not sure I'd just swipe it on alone, but this product is great for adding to foundation for a little bit of glow. Also, I'm almost certain the sample was the same amount of product as the full size, which was great. Also makes a beautiful highlighter on browbones, cheekbones, etc.

First time user

I've never been able to use a highlighter before because I have acne prone combination skin. This stuff is perfect! The sample was a great size and the product works great to glam up a makeup look!

Bright skin, but oily
Sampled

Thus product is creamy and smooth. You can wear alone or mixed with foundation. Excellent for brightening skin tone. Does make skin shines and a little oily in areas.
