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.

The best product ever!

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!!!

Nice Highlighter
Sampled

You can mix this in with a foundation/concealer to brighten up all over or just spot treat directly. It is light, smooth and blendable. Love it!

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!

kind of messy, beautiful color

this applies a tad sloppy, no matter really what you do, but that could be the sample design, a pump seems to be what is shown in the photo and that would work much better. if you are oily you might want to avoid this, it gives a high shines. but it gave a really nice effect and I am excited to try using it as a highlighter this summer.

Great highlighter
Sampled

Love this as a highlighter but a little too heavy to put all over my face, makes me feel like a greasy disco ball. Otherwise, as a highlighter it is great. No odor.

Very light, nice finish

I liked this product. I was a little worried it would be too shiny but it was just perfect. It wasn't greasy or oily either.

Cool
Sampled

This product isn't my favorite but I do like how it makes my skin glow. The only thing I dislike is that I feel like it leaves my skin feeling greasy.

Love this

I don't wear a lot of makeup but I like the way this product makes my skin look. I even use on my legs when wearing a dress/skirt.

Not my thing
Sampled

I wasn't crazy about this product. It's not necessarily bad; it goes on light (not cakey) and it's about the right shade for my skin. But I also felt like it didn't do too much to enhance anything. I'd rather skip it and not have so much product on my skin.
