Borghese Eclissare Color Eclipse Shadow & Light Palette

Hi Loves!  Another beauty review coming your way!  Borghese has sent me products before to try and after Christmas I got a delightful box of goodies from them that included this stunning eyeshadow palette.  The colors scream night out to me, but can also be simple and neutral for day.

I’ve been playing with this palette for a few weeks and love the colors that come in it.  You know I tend to gravitate towards the neutral colors like those beautiful golds & browns but I’ve had fun experimenting with the darker colors as well.

I’ve included a full description on the palette below and the color descriptions because I love to learn about how a color is described by the company that makes it. But first:

My thoughts:

-The Packaging!  Borghese doesn’t have the shiny packaging like brands such as Clinique, but this quilted black cardboard type material is beautiful in its own way.  I also LOVE that there is a magnetic flap to help keep it closed.  It does come with a dual ended brush that is nice in a pinch – but I prefer my own brushes when using it.  In regards to the packaging – it has a slicker finish so you can wipe it off with a damp towel and not get it smudged up when your fingers are covered in product!  Lastly – it has a great mirror!  I hate when makeup products come without a mirror!

-Color Quality.  Most shades are like butter but as with most brands the colors that have a lot of glitter in them are a little “gritty” and I found it was best to tap it on with my finger to really get it in the spot that I wanted because they are quite powdery and leave some fallout behind when used with a dry brush.

Bottom Line:  GREAT Palette!
This product can take you from day to night and would be nice to travel with as its slim.  However, it is long so its not likely that it would fit in your makeup bags.  I would take this if I was going someplace for a weekend where I wanted options for day and night that would go with a variety of outfits.
