Getting My Glow On with Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch in Shimmering Sand

A little while ago I picked up a tiny tube of wonder from Rimmel called Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch (to be known as Simmer Touch from this point on :-)) in the shade Shimmering Sand.

At first I was actually at a little loss as to what to use this for. I loved it in Priceline, but when I got it home I started having second thoughts because it seemed a lot darker and more shimmery than I first thought and with my pale skin it was a bit scary.

But, being the persistent being that I am, I finally found a way that I can use Shimmer Touch practically every day, and that is by mixing a drop of it into my Nude by Nature BB Cream of a morningon the days I'm not going to be wearing foundation.  It is well known that the Nude by Nature BB Cream is very, very matte so the two of these products are seriously a match made in heaven. I get a super radiant glow that fools the world into thinking that I do actually get enough sleep and that I'm not stuck inside like a hermit in front of a computer for 12 hours a day.

Now, when I tried to photograph Shimmer Touch it was not playing nice. I just couldn't seem to capture the prettiness of it unless I went out into the backyard in full sun and it still didn't translate well into a photo.

Shimmer Touch could be used as a lovely shimmery bronzer or contour shade for those of you that have the skin tone to pull it off. There are four different shades available and Shimmering Sand seems to be the darkest of the lot (in hindsight I really should have gone for a lighter shade but pfft!).

Just be warned that this product really does pack in a lot of shimmer in a small package so a little goes a very long way. Even though it only comes in a 14ml tube I envisage it lasting for quite some time due to the teeny amount that needs to be used for each application.

Has anyone used any of the other shades in this range yet? Are they worth adding to the collection?
