All the way back in May, Kat Von D teased a supermysterious holographic compact called the Alchemist Palette. "Don't even try and guess what this special 'palette' is, cuz I promise you won't!" she told her fans. And after months of waiting, we finally know what's inside and when it's launching.
This past weekend at The Makeup Show, a select few lucky shoppers were able to snag the product in advance of its December launch. Tucked inside the beautiful packaging are four beautiful iridescent pigments: [Green] Emerald, [Ultra-Violet] Amethyst, [Blue] Sapphire, and [Pink] Opal.
Each shade is designed to be used alone as a highlighter or layered on top of your favorite lipsticks and eye shadows to transform their colors. In the below images from Kat's Snapchat, which user BeccaGuitarCat posted on Imgur, you can see how the hues completely shift on top of the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick shade Witches, which is a rich, opaque black.
The four-pan palette will cost $32, but when you realize how versatile this kit is, that price seems like a steal. Just imagine: with just one swipe, you can transform every eye shadow and lipstick you have in four new ways.
According to a post on Kat's Instagram, the vegan and cruelty-free product will be available for all Sephora VIB shoppers on Dec. 18, then hit sephora.com and katvondbeauty.com on Dec. 24. It will be available in all Sephora stores (even internationally) on Dec. 26. Set some alarms, because you're definitely going to want to snap this one up for the holidays!
