Recently, Rimmel London came out with their Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch line of four highlighters.  What you can expect from these 14 ml tubes is creamy, blendable perfection for playing up your cheeks or whatever feature you want to focus eyes on.  

The color pay off judging by the two I reviewed is quite pigmented with a beautiful, soft shimmer to them.  Though this product has sparkle to it, I don't think you would mind.  This is tiny glitter immersed in its mousse-like formula instead of big noticeable flecks.  The effect is complimentary and a very wearable, more natural type of iridescent glow.

002 Radiant Rose is lovely pink, almost bubble-gum color.  003 Peach Glow is closer in color to soft apricot. 

Closest to my wrist is 002 Radiant Rose then 003 Peach Glow.

I applied this product after my foundation and worked it in.  Though this line is marketed as mere highlighters, I found these products on my light skin could pass for blush. Those ladies with medium to darker complexions probably would not find this true, but I think fair to light-skinned women would agree with me. If I had wanted to use this more as a highlighter, If found a bit mixed with foundation first achieved that sheerer radiance. 

As to performance, I liked how many hours I had this highlighter on without fading, smudging, or changing colors on me.  With all this going for Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch, it is hard to believe these little Rimmel London tubes retail for about six-dollars each.  I recommend checking these out when you next head to the drug store!
