For a temporary solution, turn your head to one side and then the other--the wind should push the rain off the face shield. It's a decent alternative to the glove swipe as it leaves no streaking nor scuffing.
This is all it takes (as long as your going 35mph+). Just slightly turinging your head while keeping your eyes focused on the road (Turn head left, turn eyes right) should push all the water away!
Hopefully your not riding in rain for more than 2 or 3 hours though.
This approach worekd for me in a severe downpour for about 3 hours, mainly highway.
