Product: Alchemist Palette
Brand: Kat Von D Beauty
I had been dying to get my hands on this palette ever since I saw it on a few different American youtuber’s videos. Once it arrived in Australia at Sephora I was so, so happy. I knew that I would take full advantage of this palette for both face, eyes and even lips and could not wait to start experimenting once I got it. Kat Von D Beauty describes this palette as “part highlighter, part topcoat, part transformer” that indulges in the currently hyped holographic trend.
First of all, the packaging is completely to die for. I can imagine all the holosexuals out there collapsing at the sight of the mesmerising holographic packaging of both the box and the palette itself. I love it as it is a perfect reflection of the product itself. I’ve got a slight pet hate towards brands using holographic packaging when the product itself is neither holo or even iridescent – definitely a sneaky marketing move. But….. this palette is definitely not that! It is a holographic dream from start to finish, with four beautiful and vastly different colours (emerald, sapphire, amethyst and opal). While the pans are fairly small, a little definitely goes a long way.
As far as the holographic trend goes, this release has got to be my favourite so far. Kat Von D as a brand is a personal love of mine – and as a plus all her products are cruelty free. I definitely think that this product was worth the purchase for myself and I cannot wait to create so many interesting looks with these colours.
Much Love, Ebony xx
