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 love the glow
Sampled

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.

Like it better for body than my face
Sampled

I mixed this one day with my foundation (as the instructions suggested) and it looked like I had rubbed Crisco all over my face. Waaaaaay too shiny of a look for my taste! However, I did attempt to mix it with my regular lotion one evening before going to a dinner party. I rubbed the mixture onto my legs and it looked great! It gave me that great, well-moisturized sheen to my poor legs that have been dried out from the winter cold. I'm planning on saving this for summer. When I have a bit more of a tan, I will love blending this with my lotion and using it on my legs, chest, and shoulders.

So-So
Sampled

I liked that they did a good job matching my shade, and the cream has a pretty good color coverage. It feels very thick and sticky though as opposed to what I am used to using.

Not a fan
Sampled

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

Too shiny for me
Sampled

While I love a good highlighter, this proved to be too shiny for me. The sample is huge, though, and the texture is light.

Heavy
Sampled

This brightener made my makeup much heavier than I prefer. I have dry skin, however this product was a bit too much for me.

Love it

This is a really great product. It goes on very smoothly and not heavy at all. It Because it has a bit of shimmer it is perfect for evenings.

Bomb
Sampled

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.

Too Wet
Sampled

Not for me. The product was too wet and sticky for me. Also I don't enjoy the iridescent coloring it seemed to have.
