Review: Borghese Moisturizing Lip Gloss (Kirkland Signature Limited Edition)

If you don’t have a Costco store near you, I’m sorry.  It’s a fabulous place and it has some great deals on makeup and perfume.  I’d never tried the Borghese brand products they sell before, but these were just too tempting for me, especially since I really need to part with some of my lip glosses. (Let’s just say many of them have lasted longer than the average celebrity marriage…)

Pros:  Goes on smoothly.  Not sticky or pasty.  Vitamin enriched.  Paraben and fragrance free.  Not tested on animals.  Good selection of neutral colors that would look good on almost anyone.  If you can get them at Costco, they’re super-inexpensive.  (Less expensive than some of the cheapest brands you can buy!)

Cons:  The applicator is a little brush.  I’m not a fan of brush-on lip glosses.  I prefer those fuzzy wand things.  They’re just easier to control.  Also, it’s not designed for long-wearing use (if that’s important to you).

If You Don’t Have Costco:  Some people are selling these online at about twice their Costco price.  I think they’re still decent enough to pay $5 or $6 a piece for, considering that’s what “drugstore brand” lip glosses cost, anyway.

In Summary:  These are great lip glosses. I love the colors.  They’re sheer enough that they don’t look tacky, but provide enough color to actually do their job.

Rating:  4.5  out of 5 stars 

  Price:  $10-$15 depending if it’s on sale and where you live

Available at: Costco and some online re-sellers
