Hey everyone! I have some exciting posts to share with you today and hopefully later next week. As you can tell from my little disclosure, Borghese sent me their line of Eclissare products. The line includes lip glosses, a large eyeshadow palette and two smaller eyeshadow palettes. I was thinking of combining the posts into one, but I thought it would be way too long, so the palettes will be reviewed in a separate post.
I had heard of Borghese before, so when I received a lovely package from them, I was ecstatic. I had always thought of Borghese as a luxury skincare brand, I had no idea they had makeup as well. I'm not 100% sure when this Eclissare line came out, but from doing some research, I think it may have been launched this past September (don't quote me though!). Anyways, that was a longer intro, so lets get into my review of the Color Eclipse Color Glass Lip Glosses.
First, here is a product description taken from the Borghese website:
"Lustrous and captivating, Eclissare ColorGlass Lip Gloss is a hydrating lip gloss that offers high shine and color. Ultra-reflective pigment and pearl deliver a luminous glow. Eclissare ColorGlass Lip Gloss are available in 9 new exciting shimmery shades."
I received 8 of the 9 shades that are available and here are the first four:
-Gilt which is a bronze-y goldshade
-Brink which is pretty much a straight up dark brown
-Darkling which is a very beautiful burgundy/berry shade
-Odyssey which is a light bronze/brown shade
-Brightside which is a beautiful pinky champagne shade
-Omen which is a plum-y purple shade
-Simmer which is basically a clear gloss with shimmer in it
-Chaos which is still a clear gloss but has a lot more silver shimmer to it
There is one more color called Spark which to me looks like a dark champagne shade.
Now going back to the description of these glosses, I do agree with them being high shine and hydrating. They do feel nice on the lips and are only a little bit sticky, but not bad. Wear time is alright, about 2-3 hours or so. The color payoff? I don't think it's so great. The darker colors definitely have more pigment to them. These glosses really only seem like topper glosses, if that makes sense. Use a lipstick and top it off with one of these and you definitely have a beautiful shiny look for day or night.
These glosses retail for $21.50 each and you can find them on the Borghese website.
What do you think of these glosses?
