[Unblended, partially blended]
Rimmel's Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch is like a whipped mousse in consistency. The light, airy texture makes this highlighter a cinch to a blend with fingers or a brush. I like to use Bdellium Tool's Bambu Fan Brush with this product. Its easy to go overboard with Flush of Pearl - it isn't a highlighter for the faint of heart. The liquid consistency imparts a hint of dewiness into the skin, but it also has a very glittery finish. A little goes a long way, so make sure to use only a tiny dab unless you're going for a disco ball effect. A great way to use Rimmel's Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch is to mix a little bit into your foundation for a touch of luminosity. This creamy highlighter is also great for use on the body.
[fully blended]Flush of Pearl is a warm, peachy-champagne color. The base shade is only visible in heavy application. Blended out, Flush of Pearl appears mainly as small flecks of silver micro glitter. A barely noticeable peach tinge can be seen in some lights. The tone of this illuminator is somewhat similar to Benefit's Watt's Up?, but a littler peachier.
I don't love Rimmel's Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch, but I don't have anything negative to say about it. I just have other highlighters that I prefer. Its great to see highlighters available at the American drugstores now though, so kudos to Rimmel for that. I enjoy the consistency of Rimmel's Wake Me Up illuminators, they're light and easy to blend. The finish of Flush of Pearl is a little much in my opinion since it's both dewy and very shimmery. The value of this product is fantastic, $6 for a half ounce tube that'll last you for ages. If you like glittery highlighters you'll adore Rimmel's Flush of Pearl. Those who seek subtle luminosity need to look elsewhere. Personally, I wouldn't repurchase.
