Retailing for $55 (total net weight 0.75 oz/ 21.3 g), this 12-color neutral palette in varying finish and texture is housed in a sturdy and chic black cardboard box with magnetic closure. It comes with a double-ended eyeshadow brush and mirror big enough to use when applying makeup.

There are five mattes (Bask, Veil, Ascend, Wane, Downfall), five shimmers (Afterglow, Pulse, Muse, Impact, Out There), and two sheens with glittery particles (Shroud, Immortal). The shimmers are buttery-soft while mattes are velvety-to-touch. Applied over eye primer, they blend seamless with commendable wear time of seven to eight hours.

I used Downfall on my eyebrows, Wane on crease and Impact on lids. I kept the rest of my makeup pretty simple to compliment the neutrality of it all.

    I have this palette and was very surprised how nice it was. Borghese makeup is kind of under the radar, but they have a lot of gems. For instance, their lip glosses are seriously impressive!

    I do love the Borghese makeup line! This is a real quality neutral palette. Something for everyone!

    Very pretty. I haven't tried any Borghese makeup.

  12. December 8, 2015 / 1:35 am

    I love the pinks and the grey!

    I've never used anything from this brand, but the formula of these shadows sounds great!

  14. December 8, 2015 / 2:52 am

    Totally agree that we can never have too many and this looks like a beauty. I remember loving Borghese eyeshadows long ago but never run into them in my shopping.

  15. December 8, 2015 / 3:15 am

    I just got this and haven't played with it yet!

  16. December 8, 2015 / 3:50 am

    On that range of colors is great! It's definitely a palette I'd make good use of.

    I agree, one can never have too many great neutral eye palettes! I have this one, I just haven't cracked it, yet.

    This palette is gorgeous, and yes, no such thing as too many neutrals!
