I can safely say the new Kat Von D Alchemist Palette is unlike anything I have ever tried. What I thought was just a simple 4 shade palette turned out to be one of my all time favorite makeup products!
Yet another product that has me dreaming of spring… Anyways, when I saw this in Sephora I was actually a little disappointed. It looked really small for the price so my initial thought was to pass on it. After seeing so many raving reviews on it, I changed my mind and decided to give it a try. It was sold out on the Sephora website but luckily I found it in store. Buying it, I still wasn’t sure if I should spend $32 on a palette that was so small and only had four shades. But naturally, being the addict I am, I went through with the purchase anyways.
I’ll get straight to the point, this palette is STUNNING. I am so glad I decided to try this. Everyone online who wrote those raving reviews was right. I have never tried anything like this product! As soon as I tried it I was blown away. The shades in this palette are all incredibly unique and beautiful. I was thinking that they may all be similar since they are all light, holographic shades. Boy was I wrong! Each one brings something totally different to the face. They have the ability to take any ordinary look to something unique and etherial. Whether you use all 4 shades or just one, your look will be taken to the next level.
The packaging of the product may be small, but it is gorgeous. The white holographic front deserves a spot on your vanity. After purchasing, I am actually happy that the palette is somewhat small. I can see myself using this product a lot and the size makes it easy to travel with! You get 4 .05 oz of product in here for $32! Not going to lie, I would actually pay the $32 for just one of the shades. That’s how amazing they are!

The picture of the swatches doesn’t even do these shades justice! The first thing I tried with this palette is wearing them as eyeshadows. This is supposed to be an eye, lip and face transformer palette so you can really use them for anything you want. I put the blue shade, Saphyre, all over my lid and holy cow I am obsessed. I LOVE to wear blues but I never do because I don’t find them to be very wearable. This one is a whole different story! Even though these shades are holographic, they are so wearable. Every single one. I don’t know how Kat Von D did it but it’s genius. That was what blew me away about this product! You can have a makeup look that is different from your usual, but it’s still so wearable and appropriate. When I put Saphyre all over my lid with some winged liner I fell in love. Saphyre has a beautiful purple shift that really pops on the lids! I also love the shade Opal as a highlighter! I think I will mainly be using these shades on my eyes, but they are stunning on the cheeks as well!
As you can tell, I’m super stoked about this product. I love it when brands come out with products that are unique and unlike anything I own! I think that anyone who gravitates towards these types of shades will love this. If you were thinking of passing on this one like I initially was, don’t!! You won’t regret it. This is the perfect product to amp up any look and transform it into something totally different!
