|Rimmel London’s Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch (Radiant Rose, Peach Glow)|
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

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!
