Shimmer Cassandra

This is the most versatile Shimmer I own.  It literally can be worn over anything and it will make it better.  It also glows in the shade, which is a plus for me.  By itself, it reminds me a little bit of Butter London Tart With A Heart, but this doesn't have the gold hue.  It doesn't lean to silver either, but it is cool toned.  This is also similar to China Glaze Snow Globe but it is much more subtle, somewhat ethereal.  Compared to the China Glaze, I would say this the grown up version of Snow Globe.  I think this is a topcoat-thirsty glitter, so it does need a little bit more basecoat (or gelous or topcoat) than other Shimmers I've tried.   I really like how iridescent this is in real life, maybe the pictures don't reflect this quality so well.  I think Cassandra is a must for glitter lovers.
