Fall Beauty with Borghese

As we say goodbye to the Summer heat waves and beach days let's get ready for the cool air of Fall with some pumpkin lattes and 
Borghese Beauty Products

About the brand
Discover the secret to Italian beauty with Tuscan-based Borghese skin care products, which reveal and enhance one’s beauty for the best possible health and glow. Initially founded in 13th century Italy during the Borghese family's rise to nobility, Princess Marcella Borghese commissioned the creation of secret recipes for cosmetics and skin creams that would continue her family's work centuries later, in 1956. The legacy of the Borghese beauty brand lives on through the unique design of their cosmetic products and the wondrous results they deliver to the skin, mind, and spirit.

The brand is well known for their Fango mud mask for face & body collection, which I do highly recommend for an at-home spa day! 

About the products
A daily protective moisturizer for Normail/Combination - to Dry skin.
This sheer lightweight formula provides a silken, barely-there feel, yet imparts exceptional moisturizer and advanced protection to premature signs of skin aging.

I have been using this every morning and use just half a pump all over my face. It quickly sinks in to the skin without any greasy feel. I only have been using it for two weeks so I can't say anything about it's anti-aging claims but just protecting your skin alone from the UV rays will prevent your skin from showing early signs of sun damage and wrinkles!

A deep bronze shade with gold shimmers. 
Color glides on smoothly, perfectly providing a flawless finish. Sculpts, contours and defines cheekbones. 

I actually use this with a powder brush and do a subtle contour just to warm up the face. It definitely gives the skin a nice glow. The glitter isn't as visible when worn compared to looking at it on the pan. I also brush some of this on the chest and shoulders for a nice bronze-y skin.

A saturation spectrum of 5 Demure to All-Out-Allure shades. Color that overshadows. Completely transcends. In finishes that you’ll find a phenomena; so-smooth mattes, polychromatic pearls, and gleam-and-glow metallics. Color with depth, dimension and luminance, it will stir and please, and may change the way you see color.
Wisp: Ivory shade with matte finish
Kindle: Champagne taupe with satin-pearl finish
Stoke: Meidum brown in matte finish
Sear: Black-brown in matte finish
Torch: Taupe with pink undertones that is very shimmery 

These eye shadows are pretty pigmented. The darker shadows, Stoke and Sear, are pretty pigmented. It's better to start with a light hand on these 2 shadows and build it up to your liking. 

True to color with rich, creamy formula that is long-wearing and smudge-free. Perfect for subtle definition and bold smoky look.
Brownout is a true brown shade. I like to use this on my upper and lower waterline without irritating my eyes. It glides on really smoothly so it's very easy to apply and it can easily be smudged for a daytime smokey eye look. Once it sets, it stays put until you take it off with a makeup remover.

Vibrant, color-saturated lip crème. Multi-dimensional infusion of pigment and pearl for a fuller lip illusion. Shine, smooth, creamy, radiant and available in 12 tantalizing, color-rich shades.

Dare is a pink-red shade with a lot of gold shimmers in it. Though this has tons of gold glitter in it, it doesn't have that gritty texture. It is very visible when worn. I haven't worn this much because it is too much to wear in the daytime, but for a night out or cocktail hour, this will be great. 
I tried to smudge the eye pencil swatch on my arm and it did not budge! I had no problem using my Almay Oil-free eye makeup remover pads to get the swatch off.

Here are two different looks that I created with these beauty products that are great to wear now as we transition into the Fall!

Daytime Smokey Eye

I used Stoke on my crease and the outer corner; Kindle all over the lid; Wisp as inner corner highlight and on the brow bone. For a brighter inner corner highlight I applied MUFE Pro Sculpting Duo Golden highlighter on top of Wisp. 
Used the eye pencil in Brownout to line my waterline and winging out the ends as I smudge the liner. On the lips is Dare lipstick. With a finger tip, I smudged Moonshot Cream Paint in 106 (deep red stain) on top of Dare to lessen the glitter-shine look to it.

Evening Smokey Eye

Stoke on the crease and outer corners; Kindle all over the lid; Wisp as the brow bone highlight; Inner corner highlight are the Wisp & Torch; With a wet angled brush, I used Sear to do my dramatic wing. Blended Sear and Stoke a bit for a nice transition and applied more Kindle towards the center and inner corner of the eye.

I line my upper waterline with Brownout and just 1/3 of the outer corner of the lower water line.
Blush is from CityColor Glow Pro Blush Palette and Blush in Flight. On the lips is Kat Von D's Lolita.

The eye makeup products did not irritate my eyes at all compared to other powder eyeshadows and eye liners I have used. I forgot to try wearing the shadows without an eye primer but with an eye primer, the colors are brighter on the eyes and it definitely lasts all day. I love the Ecclisare Color Eclipse ColorEdge eye liner since it sets and does not budge until you remove it! The lipstick is very creamy and moisturizing on the lips. I'd love to try more from that lipstick line.

Have you tried any Borghese makeup products? 
How about their Fango mud masks?
