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.

I am blending this brightener with my normal concealer and the results are AMAZING! I keep getting compliments that my skin looks dewy and healthy. It just makes me radiate. I would not use it alone--it's a little too shimmery. But when it's blended it works wonders. It's very long lasting too. I normally work 12 hours a day and I don't have to refresh my face. I've been using birchbox for 1 year now, and this is absolutely my favorite product thus far. Thank you!

The best product ever!
Sampled

I have used Borghese products for several years! This is the first time I have tried the brightening makeup. Wow, what a difference! It adds glow to my face while hiding imperfections in my skin! I use this product everyday!!!

Natural glow
Sampled

I wore this product to my husband's office Christmas party, and I was told that I looked like I was glowing (and no one assumed it was the makeup)! My husband said so many people told him how beautiful his wife looked. It's so creamy and doesn't clog the pores at all.

Dewy Skin!
Sampled

I love this stuff! The other brighteners I have give me either a golden glow (Gerard cosmetics) or a nice light neutral glow (Loreal Dream Lumi), but this one adds a slight pinkish glow! I love them all, but this one is great for that dewy winter flush (without being overdone) for daytime. I don't think it blurs my imperfections, but I have concealer that takes care of that. I have warm/olive skin tone and it still looks great! A must try!

I love the glow

I absolutely love this glow I have when I wear this product. I did what the bottle suggested and mixed this with my morning lotion it leaves this fantastic hue after it dries.

I have always been a fan of illuminating beauty products. The sample size i received was huge and will probably last me forever. Thank god, because I really love this product. A little goes a long way. A few dots on my cheeks for higher looking cheek bones and a dab on the end and bridge of my nose and it instantly looks slimmer. Also a nice product to brighten up your skin if you don't have time to put on a full face of makeup.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Wow! I LOVED this product! I added a little to my regular foundation and it added a nice healthy sheen. It helps deflect light to make your skin look flawless. It's a little greasy but I found if you just use a tiny bit it goes a long way. The sample is a HUGE size so will last a really long time. There's no scent to speak of which is nice. I think some girls with better skin could use this alone on "no makeup" days for a nice little boost. For me, it makes a very nice base with my other foundation.

This is fantastic! I use it in the apples of my cheeks for a nice flow. Goes on smooth, dries quickly and can be layered with foundation and powder. Absolutely love!

perfect shimmer
Sampled

I love this! It has the perfect amount of shimmer, but I am a glittery kinda girl. It adds a nice color as well. I would live to buy this after the sample is gone but I will have to save my points!
