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.

Great product
Sampled

I used this the other night over my foundation and under my mineral powder. It was very light and gave a nice brightness to my face without looking like I was wearing too much. Great coverage.

BORGHESE Brightening Makeup
Sampled

This product looked amazing, but I was a little disappointed. It looked like I had a subtle sheen, but it thinned out my foundation. Later on in the day, I noticed it had made my foundation less-effective. It was gorgeous under my brows as a subtle highlight. This product was loved when I got lazy and used it as eye shadow... for those who don't have acne or redness it probably works great!

Not all it says
Sampled

I would agree it brightens skin but does not camouflage imperfections. It is thin and does not serve the purpose of concealer or foundation.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Sampled

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!

Great brightner
Sampled

Goes on smoothly and stays on all day. Gives a nice shimmery look added with foundation. Will purchase once I use up the sample.

Shiny
Sampled

This product was just too shiny for my preference. It did offer good coverage and brightness though, just too shiny for me at this age.

Didn't show up

I have medium-olive skin and no matter how much I used, it really didn't seem to make a difference. The liquid was smooth and blended well, but just not for me.

too shimmery
Sampled

I wanted to like this product but it was just too much shimmer for my lighter skin. Plus Parabans? No thank you. I'm surprised it was included in my box.

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!
