The Stunning Spectrum of the Borghese Eclissare Collection – Part 3

Borghese Eclissare Collection

Press Sample

We’ve talked cleanser, primer, mascara and lipstick. Now, in my final Borghese post I’ll be reviewing a few select items from their Eclissare Collection – Eclissare Color Eclipse Shadow and Light Luminous Eye Palette, $55, Eclissare Color Eclipse ColorGlass Lip Gloss, $21.50, and Eclissare ColorEdge Eye Pencils, $21.50. The word “

The word “eclissare,” is an Italian verb with means to eclipse. I can absolutely see why they named the collection as such. The products definitely eclipse your eyes and lips with depth, dimension, and luminosity. Perhaps that’s why I saved the best for my last review in the series.

Borghese Eclissare Color Eclipse Lip Gloss

I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t start my review with a lip gloss. These ColorGlass glosses, available in 9 shades, are truly unique. Not only are they hydrating, but they also offer beautiful high shine and intensely reflective pigmentation. The ColorGlass are not your typical gloss. They give my lips a luminous glow, which can be worn alone or as a topper (see picture below).

I received Spark and Shimmer. Spark, which has a very duochrome look to it is a bit hard to describe, but I would say it is a combination of a white/pink gloss with pink and silver glitter. In some light the glitter also looks green and gold. Shimmer is more of a brownish gloss with gold and pink glitter. These glosses do have a “stick” to them, which improves wear time, but doesn’t feel tacky on the lips.

The next item I sampled in the Eclissare collection was the eye pencil in Pitch Black. As the name indicates, Pitch Black is a deep intense black, and it more than lives up to its description. The color payoff is intense and the formulation is rich and creamy. A bit too creamy if you ask me.

Upon first use, the creaminess worked great. I had no problem applying Pitch Black, but after a few uses the pencil really wore down, and if I accidently knicked it with the cap, I lost more of the pencil. This made creating definition a bit of a challenge, although it worked for the smudgy look of a smoky eye.

My biggest issue with the ColorEdge Eye Pencil was that it is impossible to sharpen. I actually had to use an electric pencil sharpener, and then a apply the pencil with an angled brush.

By far my favorite item from the collection is the Shadow and Light Luminous Eye Palette, and not only because every time I wear it I receive a compliment. Okay, it’s slightly the reason why I love the palette so much.

This neutral inspired palette features 12 eyeshadows, along with the signature Borghese compact and mirror and dual-ended blending and precision brush. Among the 12 shadows are cremes, soft shimmers, and high impact glitters, which makes this the ideal palette for creating day and night looks.

Bask – a light, warm-toned creamy-beige with a satin-matte finish
Afterglow – a warm-toned medium-beige with a highly metallized
Pulse – a warm-toned, soft-peach, highly metallized
Veil – a cool neutral soft-brown with a satin-matte finish
Muse – a burnished gold with brown undertones, highly metallized
Ascend – a light, soft-tan with yellow undertones, satin-matte finish
Wane – a rich medium brown with warm undertones, satin-matte finish
Impact – a medium rose-copper, highly metallized
Downfall – a dark brown with depth, matte finish
Out There – a medium pewter, highly metalized
Shroud – a deep charcoal-grey with blue undertones, highly metallized
Immortal – a deep charcoal-black with subtle silver glitter

In addition to blending like velvet and having amazing color payoff, the shadows are long-lasting and don’t crease, even when worn without a primer. I instantly feel in love with the Shadow and Light palette. It made my blue eyes really standout, which isn’t always easy because they are on the smaller side. I was seriously amazed by how many compliments I received, especially when both my dad and sister said noticed.

Overall: The Borghese Eclissare collection is filled with amazing, well-made products. Though I’ve only sampled three items from the collection, I am impressed with each one. I would highly recommend checking out the Eclissare Color Eclipse Shadow and Light Luminous Eye Palette, $55, and the Eclissare Color Eclipse ColorGlass Lip Gloss, $21.50. Both are beautifully unique and live up to the high standard of Borghese.

    What I find fascinating is how different your eye color looks with each combination of eye shadow! My favorite is the middle one – it totally makes your eyes pop!
