Borghese Eclissare Color Eclipse ColorGlass Lip Gloss

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re all doing great today! I’ve taken a short break away from posting due to real life stuff but I’m back now in the swing of things. I have a lot to share in such a short amount of time so I’ll get right on it. I was sent the Borghese 9-piece Skincare + Color Collection Set for review a few months back and here’s my take on the Borghese Eclissare Color Eclipse ColorGlass Lip Gloss.

What I love about this product? It comes beautifully packaged in a standard type of tube container with a doe foot applicator that lip glosses come in. The lids are a beautiful ombre shade. I love it. The formula for this is surprisingly not as sticky as I thought it would be. There is a slight tackiness to it but definitely not much compared to lip glosses from other brands that comes in a similar tube packaging. I personally don’t find the shades too sparkly but I enjoy quite a bit of sparkle more than anyone I know. The shades I got are Simmer and Spark. Both are light in color so it’s a true gloss per se. See swatches below in different lighting (I apologize in advance for the in shade shot….it’s the only clear shot I was able to get in that lighting and it leans very red). These lasted on me for hours even when sipping water quite often.

What I don’t like about this product? If I have to be really picky….maybe how much shimmer it has? I mean, I don’t care — I use this at work and stuff but I know my friends and co-workers shy away from any sign of shimmer — especially when at work. It’s not very subtle compared to some other lip glosses I’ve tried that has some shimmer. I personally find the shimmer nice as it “brightens” up my face sort of.
