Borghese Bronzer Brush & Lipcolour Review

Perla Duale High Impact Lipcolour

Borghese launched a lipstick line  in November 2010 called Perla Duale High Impact Lipcolour. There are six shades to choose from, and they are all very beautiful colors.  They range in colors, from pinkish, light brown, wine colors, to a darker more caramel brown.

These lipsticks were inspired by the fashion forward runways of Milan. The inner lipstick color is surrounded by a shimmery balm with a pearl colored finish.


The shades are Perla Nudo, Perla Café, Perla Fiamma, Perla Pesca, Perla Vino and Perla Rosa. Each tube is $24.50.


I received the Perla Café, which is a shimmery blushed rose color. I really like it, because it gives options. You can apply this straight from the tube to get the shimmery lighter color for work or a school meeting. For a night out on the town, you can use a lip brush to get a darker color with less shimmer.

The lipstick is very velvety feeling which feels amazing, and has a very long-lasting formula that holds on forever. It feels so luxurious on my lips, and has such a luminous shimmery opaque color. The lipstick contains Vitamins A, C, and E. The vitamins moisturize and nourish lips while also offering anti-aging benefits.

This lipstick is unlike any other because it also soothes the lips while on. In addition to having Vitamins A, C, and E; it also contains Chamomile and Aloe to soften and calm the lips.

I loved the uniqueness of the color.. Every lipstick I’ve ever tried have been mattes, shimmers, and satins. Never once have I tried a pearl finish lipstick, until now. This is new and fresh for me. The lipstick is classy, sophisticated, and rich.

If you have a lip brush, you could also use the pearl “balm” outside by itself, which also looks very unique. It gives off a frosty lipgloss look. I really like it!


Splendore All Over Body Bronzer

-- $33


How to use:

*Twist the neck of the brush to the right and shake the brush gently to allow the powder to come through

*Sweep over face and body, or anywhere you want an instant glow. Avoiding eye area.

*When finished, twist the neck to the left to close the brush and keep powder from spilling out.

My Thoughts

I have had a shortage on tan skin this year. The only thing tan about me is my arms and my face, the rest of me is pale as pale can get. I used to go to the tanning bed, but without a baby sitter and $50 extra a month- I stopped going.

I started looking for other alternatives for dark, beautiful skin that doesn’t carry a risk of skin cancer. I didn’t use to think about things like that when I WAS tanning, but honestly- A girl that went to my high school died from over-tanning. She burnt her insides by tanning too much.

After that- I became leery of tanning. I started using bronzers and fake bake tanning lotions. I really liked this bronzer brush from Borghese. They know just how to make a lady feel beautiful. ;}

In the morning, I spend about thirty minutes trying to warm up my complexion with make-up. I put on mineral liquid foundation, mineral powder foundation, blush (bronzer), and usually fake-baked bronzing cream on my body.

This bronzing Brush is amazing because you can twist the neck of the brush to turn on the glittered bronzer. This releases the bronzer so you can put it on without too much spilling out on you all at once. After you turn the neck on, turn it sideways and shake it a little, then turn it back off. THEN you can put it wherever you want it!

This doesn’t make me look unnatural and my skin doesn’t look like it’s covered in fake bake bronzer. You can apply this on your face, cheeks, shoulders, arms, and legs.. Wherever you want a sun-kissed glow to be.

This bronzer is fragrance free, talc-free, and free of mineral oil. As soon as you apply this, you can tell that it has these tiny flecks of shimmer that make even the lightest skin seem bronzed. So, whether you have light or dark skin. this will NOT look unnatural on you.

This isn’t the same as a fake-bake, so if that’s what you think this is, it isn’t. This is for someone who just wants to add a little shimmery bronze to their day or night.

I love wearing this. I feel so fresh, natural, and beautiful. What woman DOESN’T want a shimmery bronzed look without all the heaviness? I’ve had too many issues over the years of real body fake-bakers gone bad.. Knees and elbow, ankles, and face globs.. This doesn’t create any of that.

Just gently shake the brush onto your skin as much or as little as you need.
