Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch
Flush of Pearl and Radiant Rose
Flush of Pearl (left) and Radiant Rose (right)
To the left of each concentrated swatch is a blended swatch. Flush of Pearl is a champagne with white shimmer. Radiant Rose is a mauve pink that also has white shimmer. I find that the base color disappears easily when it's blended out, basically leaving you with white shimmer on the cheeks.
Claims: "Lightweight, ultra blendable mousse formula gives an instant touch of radiance and illuminates the skin. Wakes up skin with a healthy looking glow and a long lasting flush of colour."
Finish/Texture: The finish of these is shimmery, but it doesn't actually brighten. The texture felt more like a cream than a mousse.
Lasting Power: I started to see color fading after two hours of wear.
Scent: They were unscented.
Packaging: I love the way the squeeze tube controls how much product comes out!
Price/Availability: I paid $4.47 each at Wal-Mart
- Nice Packaging
- Easy to blend
- Doesn't brighten the skin
- Color fades quickly
- Many layers are needed to see actual color
- Looks like white glitter when blended out
- Not a mousse formula
I honestly had no idea what to expect when I bought these. I just went out on a limb because I was so excited to see something that usually isn't available in my area. Unfortunately, these don't live up to any of their claims. I felt like the formula was more of a cream than a mousse. The color disappeared when I blended it into my skin, leaving me with unnatural white-glitter cheeks- not a good look! Overall, these were disappointing, I'll be sticking with my Physicians Formula highlighters!
