Did ya know?

7 years in the making, the Alchemist Holographic Palette was developed as one of Kat Von D’s “dream products”—something she’s always wanted in her collection!

Kat Von D hand-sketched the intricate letter “A” and decorative filigree featured on the front of this shimmer eyeshadow palette, inspired by lettering from her antique book collection.

Alchemist Holographic Palette is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 367.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iridescent perfection! I adore this palette! The packaging is lovely and a perfect size for home or travel. The colors are amazing and multi dimensional, true iridescence with no glitter. They layer wonderfully and are very versatile. The only warning I would give, is do not wear them if you are planning on being vigorously physically active as I have done so and in those instances they wear off much more quickly in about 2-4 hours. Whereas in a normal more casual occasion they may last 6- 8 hours. I wear it almost daily, as a shadow, as a highlighter and often over my lipstick (usually navy blue or black, but opal looks lovely over a bright red)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed I have never returned a makeup product before this. I loved this concept and palette from the beginning but couldn't justify the expense. I finally decided to purchase it because it's amazing swatches. I was so excited to play with these magnificent shades and I'm quite sad about their lackluster performance. While these do look good over a dark matte lipstick that's as far as the pros go for me. I tried numerous times and many different combinations of layering them over other eyeshadows and was continuously not amused. When placed over another eyeshadow these completely loose there dual chrome finishes. I was thoroughly disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These colors are insane!! I first saw the palette at Sephora, then my best friend grabbed it and I had a chance to play with hers a little. OMG insane how cool these colors look on the skin. I'm 50 years old, and am not always going to do some of the amazing things I see on younger women, but I feel amazing when I wear these colors. I love that they are wearable on their own, and that they can be layered over other products *eyes, cheeks AND lips* to create totally new looks. I'm almost temped to go back and pick up a second palette, because I honestly don't want to run out!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space Babe Feels I got this pallet for Christmas from my sister and I am in LOVE with it. I’m obsessed with KVD beauty and normally light, pastel, or bright colors aren’t my thing. I saw a lot of oil slick looks with this pallet, but I went in a different direction. Looking at this iridescent goodness I kept thinking “space babe”. I had a lot of fun with this pallet! I used all 4 colors plus absolution and ashes from the Saint and Sinner pallet. All my products used are KVD minus my dip brow and paint pot eye primer. I can’t wait to see what other looks I come up with!!! I topped bauhau5 with the amethyst and opal for the lip as well, and used opal as my highlight on the cheek bone and nose. Emerald above the brow for some fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOLY MOTHER OF GLOB, THIS BRILLIANT INVENTION I see a lot of complaints about price; however, I think this is well worth the money. You're getting 4 fresh, new shades that are highly pigmented in a loooovely compact-style palette. A little product goes a LONG way. You have to be pretty light-handed when using this as highlighter for that reason, but when you get that part right, any of these colors look incredible on the bare skin. Using the product as a transformer topcoat brings totally new dimension to any color lipstick, eyeshadow, or eyeliner. I have to say it doesn't look like any shimmer or metallic shadow I've ever owned (and being an owner of the MetalMatte palette, I can tell you, the formula for these is INSANELY different from the KVD shimmer and metallic formulas). You put this stuff on the skin or over a color, and it creates a wonderful iridescence-- I wouldn't say I see so much a "holographic" look about the colors, but definitely INSANELY iridescent. I used {blue}saphyre over ink liner in trooper, and it creates almost a beetle shell like blue. To KVD beauty: Please, please, please make more shades of this lovely highlighter, maybe a refillable palette or singles, and keep them permanent!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful but... The longer I've had this product, the less satisfied I've been. These are SO soft and blend like a dream. I like layering them on all the usual highlight spots but also like them as a lip topper. But the day after I got this palette, the pink opal shade started crumbling. The slightest bump of the packaging against anything (I tossed mine onto my bed, something I used to do with my palettes all the time) will probably make yours crumble too. Now, about 2.5 months later, the pans are coming loose. The pink one was first, the blue and purple next. So far, the green is the only pan not wiggling itself loose. If you're able to keep this on your vanity and never plan to travel with it, I say this palette is a huge YES. It's beautiful. But if you travel at all, want to keep this in a bag, or take it anywhere...reconsider that. This palette is not travel friendly. If there wasn't a magnet on this to keep it closed this thing would've crumbled everywhere and been a goner a long time ago.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing These are some of the most amazing highlighters ever! They are super pigmented and the holographic hues are beautiful. I'm a highlighter freak and I love a blinding glow, a little REALLY does go a long way! The only reason why I didn't make it a 5 star, was because the middle shade Amethyst (my personal favorite) was broken when I opened the pallet. I was really heartbroken as I was anxiously awaiting for my package. I thought of sending it back and exchanging it, but I had waited what felt FOREVER to receive it and they were sold out at Sephora. I use the pallet almost daily and it does suck to see my little Amethyst all crumbled. Needless to say it is a really cool highlight pallet, specially if you're into holographic and super glow colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So powdery??? So I was really really excited when I picked this palette up in store at Sephora. When I got home, I tested it and, yes, the colors are perfection. However, as I was just BARELY tilting it to get a better look at the duochrome effect, the blue shade fell right out of the pan and landed in a powdery, messy mountain on my carpet. The metal pan didn't even fall out with it, just the pigment. The other shades are really powdery too, so just be warned.
