Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist v’s Cosmic Shimmer Mist Review

I bought some Glimmer Mists the other day and they arrived yesterday, I only got a chance this evening to have a play around with them as I was out with one of the girls for a meal and a chat last night!.

I took some plain white Prima Flowers and sprayed each one with a different Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Spray as I bought 5 different ones the results can be seen below…

L-R  Oriental Poppy…Cinnamon….Juniper…..Lemon Zest…..Spring Violet

I also bought 4 bottles of Cosmic Shimmer Mist and did the same with plain white prima flowers and the results are shown below…

L-R  Ancient Copper…..Golden Fish…..Purple Violet…..Lava Red

As you can see the results are quite different, Tattered Angels is a matt finish with a subtle sheen and the Cosmic Shimmer Mist has a Glossy High sheen result..

I like them both and i’m split down the middle if I had to choose, but if pushed the Cosmic Shimmer Mist would get my vote, based on the fact that I think the bottles contain more shimmer mica powder than the Tattered Angels and I also think the ink is more concentrated, giving a vibrant in your face colour and sheen., the Tattered Angels is a more muted soft toned down version with a subtle sheen to it.

I’d be interested to hear your Glimmer Mist preferences too, so please feel free to leave me a comment 🙂

  1. bravo pour cette page c’est tout à fait ce que je cherchais ma préférence va vers les cosmic shimmer pour leur brillance et pour leur touche un peu pailletée.

    je vais sûrement me laisser tenter.

    merci encore

    1. You are most welcome Kirstin… the cosmic shimmer mist is much more vibrant, you can get it over here at and the ship worldwide for free!

      Thanks so much for visiting and leaving a comment 🙂

    1. Hi Jamie…

      Thanks for your comments, I have updated the blog post to incorporate the colours and also put a link to the Youtube video I made alongside this post (its at the very bottom of the page)

  2. Hey! I was looking on the internet for the difference between both and look what I found, it is on your blog! I only had a chance to play with the Glimmer Mists and really like them for their subtle effect (not regular…) but I thinl they are more expensive than the Cosmic Shimmers…
