Rimmel’s new Wake Me Up line includes the Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch, which is a cream highlighter that is available in four (4) shades. This review is for the shade 004 Shimmering Sand.
This luminizing product comes in a very small squeezable plastic tube with a twist-off cap.
The Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch has a cream formula that’s extremely thin without being watery. Its thin consistency makes the product extremely light-weight on the skin.
Shimmering Sand is a light, shimmery, peachy-gold. The product gives off translucent/nude color and once it’s blending into the skin, it gives off very little color, which means you can pair it with many different blush shades. This shade is also particularly suited for pairing with bronzer. This illuminator leaves a dewy finish that doesn’t look oily or greasy.
The effect you get is more of a sheen, as opposed to shimmer or strong illumination. Because the effect is pretty subtle, you can use this product on any part of the face and can even mix it into your face cream or foundation to give your skin an all-over more luminous effect. If, on the other hand, you want a stronger highlighting effect, you won’t be able to get it with this product.
Ease of Use: 9/10
The thin formula blends effortlessly over the skin without leaving any noticeable border lines. Because the luminizing effect is soft, avoid putting powder on top–you’ll lose any luminescence this product gives off.
For around $5.00 you get 0.47 fl oz (14 ml) of product. You’re getting about half of the amount of product compared to most other liquid/cream highlighters at the drugstore,but you’re also paying noticeably less.
