Editor's Review

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic PaletteKat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) contains four shades that can be used on the eyes, lips, or face and are designed to be used over other products as transformers. The formula is supposed to be pigmented. Three of the four shades have real shifts, so depending on the viewing angle, can appear more like one color or another distinct color. One shade was more iridescent in its effect.

The texture of the formula was dustier, a little drier to the touch, and I found they layered best over still-drying cream products or shimmery eyeshadows but did not work well over a dried, matte cream eyeshadow. The dustier formula made them very blendable as a cheek highlighter, though, and of all the ways I tried the product, they were easiest and had the most noticeable shift applied as highlighters, whether alone or layered over another cheek color. They layered best over matte and satin finish lip products, as they seemed to get absorbed and muted by more emollient formulas.

The pan size is that of a standard eyeshadow (MAC, Urban Decay, Anastasia, etc.), but there is good spacing between each shade to use them as cheek highlighters as well. The palette itself is unusually shaped, and that extra space means that it seems unnecessarily large, though I felt like the whole palette ended up being rather small.

I've been searching for something like that for a long time. Years ago you could find such colours and finishes only in small indie brands, and usually it was pretty much hard to guess, how would it look in person. Of course, thanx to Cristine, we all know Alchemist is NOT a holo, but it really is iridiscent. Amazing buttery shadows (I can't call those little pans highlighter), which are buildable and pigmented in a beautiful way. Bought that pallette twice, and since no brands are planning to make cheaper dupes, I will stick to this pallette.

Most sheer colour-shifting eyeshadows and highlighters I've encountered have little specks of things that look like glitter in them. These don't. Their sheen is evenly distributed, which gives them more of a glowy mother-of-pearl kind of finish. Which I think is neat! The packaging is much more sturdy than I thought it would be, it's not made of normal cardboard like I had expected. The shades are subtle, but beautiful. On top of some Too Faced shadow insurance primer these colours last me all day.
