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.

Not enough shimmer :(
Sampled

This did not have nearly enough shimmer for me. I love the dewy look and I tried it as a highlighter and could barely notice it. I tried mixing in with my makeup and it was slightly more noticeable.

Not really sure it made a difference.

I blended this in with my regular tinted moisturizer in the morning. I'm not really sure if it made much of a difference overall, but it had a great feel and I liked the creaminess it added to my moisturizer.

Great Product
Sampled

I really enjoyed this product and have used similar creams that didn't produce the sheen or glow that I was looking for. Goes on smooth and doesn't cake or fade. This is a product that a little goes a long way and can even be applied on top of powder makeup. Will invest in a full size bottle when I finish this sample!!!

I love this product! I have used similar products but I love the texture of this one. I use it as a highlighter to give my cheeks a little simmer daily. A little goes a long way with this product! I will definitely consider buying it in the future.

This brightening make up is a great extra touch to put on in the morning. It really lights up your face and gives you this glow you never knew you could have.

I am very pale skinned and the shimmer if this may be more obvious on me. I think it would be nice for a night out.

To start, the sample size of this product was perfect and should last a while. I use just a few dabs to help brighten under my eyes after applying BB cream. I have also used this by itself all over on the weekends for a hint of coverage and a lovely glow.

Ehhh

Less than enthused. It went on so heavy; I felt like I was wearing a ton of makeup. The shimmer was nice, but just too much for my fair complexion.

Amazing
Sampled

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!

this product is a good one and I really liked the way it make my look more radiant. It was a bit greasy though so not sure if I will use it regularly or not.
