Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch Review & Swatches

Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch

Wake me up before you go go with a little Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch. These creamy, lightweight mousses blend into skin creating radiance and glow in a simple swipe.

I’m scared of highlighters and was actually terrified of these as well since I don’t do shimmer well but they are actually quite nifty.

Take a look!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch are available in four selections for around $4.99 each. These come in a tiny squeeze tube that’s 14ML in size. If you’re extremely fair you can likely get away with multitasking these as both a blush and a highlighter. I wasn’t so lucky to use them as a blusher but as a highlighter they kinda rock.

These have a refined glitter that’s just as pretty as you’d get from products like Benefit High Beam. This is not a chunky super glittery dose of highlighter so no worries there. They run sheerer and produce more of a color than color, unless of course, as I stated above, you’re super fair. I squeeze a tiny amount onto the back of my hand and use a stripling brush to apply. The product produces a lovely iridescent shimmery glow on my cheek bones. You can also apply it down the bridge or your nose, on your high brown to highlight, or even squeeze into your foundation. The texture is that of a mousse but blends that’s virtually weightless. The creamy formula doesn’t cling to drier areas and blends out to a picture perfect finish. I love the very sheer yet natural glow they give my skin!

I’m not a great judge of highlighters but I have to say loved these little creams! They work multitask in any number of ways to get a little bit of a glow just where you need it and can even be used as a color wash on lids!

Do love!

Muse Approved.

    I’ve seen the Wake Me Up concealer here now, and I know they have a foundation that all the British Youtubers rave about–have we gotten that yet, or is the line very slowly trickling in?

    Good morning, Sista! I don’t wear foundation, so could these work as a tinted moisturizer? I love the color of the rose one although I’ve not yet seen them in stores. It’s off to Harmon’s today!

    BTW guilty pleasure…I love George Michael!

      mm not really sis! these are highlighters without any major color, so mostly produces a subtle glow on cheek bones (or brows) but not as an all over tinted moisturizer. HA ME TOO! ;-D We truly are sisters I knew IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    this seems delightful, muse! a question, though, do you think peach glow has any similarities with benefit high beam?

      not really phoebe as benefit’s high beam is a soft shade of pink.
