In continuation with NaBloPoMo I thought it would be fun to dedicate Tuesday’s this month to a different palette. Considering I am a palette junkie this in a little dive into my collection. I’ve been thinking about doing this for awhile as I’ve been asked to do a post (or posts) on it. If all goes well, I’ll continue to work through my ever-growing collection until I hit the end (is there ever an end?!). To start off though, I’ll go through ones that I’m pretty sure I haven’t done a dedicated post on in the past. So, today I’m starting off with the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette. I picked this beauty up in August but haven’t previously featured it on the blog.
The Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette is a transformer palette that can be used on the eyes, lips and face. It definitely holds true to being multipurpose as I have used it in all three ways so far. While it isn’t truly holographic (why do brands so loosely use this term?!), all four shades have a beautiful shift to them. They all look nearly white in the pan, but when they catch the light their true pigmentation shines through.
All four shades are surprisingly pigmented as you can see from the swatches below. I let my sister use my Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette last week and she immediately expressed shock of how pigmented it is. The great part is though is that because of the duo-chrome it isn’t look overly intense as you only catch the intensity of the shade in certain lighting. I have yet to over-do it using this palette.

It sure is! 😍
No!! There is NEVER and end!! lol! I have this palette too but I’ve never used it 😦
an end** oopsie!
Haha definitely is no end in sight!
And 😱😱😱 you need to use it! It’s wonderful!
I absolutely LOVE these shades, but they’re too pastel-y/cool-toned for my skintone. This probably looks beautiful on you, though!
Yeah I’ve been loving it! I’ve used it in a bunch of different ways so far! Very versatile.
I agree, the buzz word “holographic” is so misused! It bugs me.
I like the idea of a topper palette. I have a few eye shadows that have these properties where they look almost white but when applied on top of another shade (especially deeper colours) their true colours really pop – it’s fun!
I’m not a fan of the triangular shape of this palette though – storing it must be a pain. 😛
I actually don’t have any trouble storing it at all haha, I have all of my highlight palettes stacked at the back of my highlight/blush/bronzer drawer 😁
I’ve only done a couple of eye looks with this palette using darker colours but I definitely need to do more. You’re right, it’s so fun when the true colours pop!
