Every true fashionista knows what the change in seasons really means—an excuse to do a little quality upgrading.

With Spring 2011 just barely underway, there is still plenty of time to begin incorporating some of the hottest seasonal trends into your daily routine.

And we all know that a look goes well beyond the clothes and accessories you adorn yourself with—we’re talking about sprucing up the total package from head to toe.

So, why not give yourself a complete Spring makeover—beginning with your beauty regime.

Introducing BORGHESE…

The Borghese cosmetics and skin care line combines the tradition of timeless Italian beauty – with a contemporary awareness – to create a collection of color and treatment products that strive to celebrate the unique beauty in each and every woman.

If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop that can accommodate all of your Spring beauty needs, Borghese has it all. From various exfoliaters, moisturizers, masks and toners to an array of blushes, bronzers, glosses and did I mention hair care products—Borghese provides you with all the fashion-forward essentials you need to welcome a new, refreshing Spring look:

  • Juicy Lip Color

When you think of Spring, most often you envision the bright, lively colors of seasonal flora. Whether it’s shades of pastel pink, sweet citrus or a dewy mauve, Borghese makes it simple for you to integrate the stylish beauty trends seen most recently on well-respected fashion runways.

As if Marc Jacobs and Diane von Furstenberg weren’t already trendy thought-leaders, both employed superior Spring shades when choosing cosmetics for their NYFW 2011 presentations.

By mimicking their looks, you too can accessorize your lips with yummy Spring colors brought to you by Borghese.

With so many shades to choose from – including Spring favorites Misto Mandarino, Grappa and Primale Pink – you too can copy the high-fashion lipcolour look!

Misto Mandarino

Borghese’s high-fashion lip color does more than just look pretty—it treats your lips with anti-aging conditioners—a definite win-win.

The Borghese B Moisture Advanced Lipcolours also are available in two different finishes – crème or luster.

The B Moisture Advanced Lipcolours take your average conditioning lip-balm one step further by giving you an all-access pass to long lasting, rich color and all day moisturization.


I instantly fell in love—being a loyal lip gloss user, I rarely experiment with lipstick.

I always worry that after a few hours it begins to look flakey as it dries out; but with Borghese Lipcolour my lipstick-phobia flew out the window as soon as I realized that there was no need to reapply.

Primale Pink

Besides its perfect Spring hues, what really makes Borghese Lipcolour stand out?

In addition to the full, long-lasting color Borghese B Moisture Advanced Lipcolours help to minimize the appearance of fine lines and encourage the production of collagen and elastin—helping to keep your lips protected and looking fresh.

The Vitamin E conditions your lips while Ceramide 1 nourishes and strengthens the delicate lip area for maximum hydration—exactly what every fashionista needs during these hot, sunny seasonal months.

  • Bright, Bold Eyes

So what happens when you wake up one bright, Spring morning and you just don’t feel like lipstick? You need something that stands out and makes a statement, something that can take the place of your fruity-hued lips…why not a little a pop of color lining your eyes?

Whether it’s a sparkling stripe of jewel-toned shadow or bold bright eyeliner, you can pump up your Spring makeup routine by making your eyes take center stage.

Blu Scurro

Borghese’s got you covered there as well. After perusing the many color choices, it’s easy to see that you will find Spring success with the luxury cosmetic brand’s Eye Accento Pencil.

Blu Scurro and Plum Espresso embrace the cheery seasonal palette and with a dual-ended pencil and sponge tip for blending, you have full control over how much your eyes stand out.

Shadow Milano Trio

Borghese also provides a wide range of shadows to help you spruce up your makeup regiment.

Not only does Borghese’s Shadow Milano Trio come in an array of color choices – Madame Butterfly and Puccini Plum being the top contenders for Spring style – but the shadow’s crease-resistant color is specially formulates to soothe and condition your lids while providing effortless glam.

Need any more of a reason to go bold this Spring? Well then take a cue from Peter Som, Jason Wu and Oscar de la Renta—all whom showcased bright, flirty eyes throughout NYFW 2011.

  • Revitalize

Other than adding a punch of color to your Spring palette, it’s important that you take a little time for yourself.

After a harsh, dry winter, your skin needs a little TLC—and what better way to prep for the change of seasons than to give yourself the spa treatment from the comfort of your own home?

Fango Active Mud for Face and Body

One of Borghese’s most well-known products is brand’s Fango Active Mud for Face and Body. The exclusive mineral-enriched mud mask originates from Tuscany’s volcanic hills.

It specializes in energizing and nourishing the most precious skin cells on your face and body—exactly the little wake-up every fashionista needs.

Special absorbing action unclogs pores, eliminates dead skin cells and detoxifies impurities; all while leaving your skin feeling comfortably hydrated, firmer and invigorated just in time for Spring.
