Kat Von D Alchemist Palette -Highlighter Review



Hello My Beauties,

Welcome to my full review on Kat Von D Alchemist Palette. So, the first thing you need to know is it is formulated with cruelty free product and it is an eye, lip, and face transformer palette with four holographic shades. Kat Von D beauty has listed it as Hashtag Vegan Alert (#veganalert). It says that seven years in the making, this palette is one of Kat Von D’s passion projects. She spent months perfecting the intricate letter “A” and decorative scroll work featured on the front of the palette.


So you get 4 pans of iridescence highlighter shades and it does comes in a triangular packaging with a mirror in it,which I love! It is a cupboard packaging and it has a plastic feeling to it which will not collect any dust easily,so that’s a plus point. Inside you do get 4 shades which are –  Holographic Shades in Emerald (green), Saphyre (blue), Amethyst (ultra-violet), Opal (pink) with 4 x 0.05 oz/ 1.53 g of product. It is formulated WITHOUT:

– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Phthalates

In terms of value it is $32.00 and I have to say it is little expensive than what you get in here; and because she put so much love into it, that’s maybe the reason behind the value of this product.

Someone was asking me about comparison between Anastasia Glow kit in Moon-Child. The big difference which I found between Anastasia Glow Kit and this, is that; Moon-child Palette has chunkier glitters in it , not smooth of a formula whereas this is very very smooth and there is no actual glitter. It just glides into your skin! Which makes this one little bit attractive to me personally. But if you have the Glow-kit palette, I don’t think you need this palette in a everyday basis.

Swatch Party !

Let me go ahead and do swatches so that you can see it yourself how it performs in skin. Remind you, I have not use any primer and put it straight on my arms.  fullsizerender-2


Suggested Usage by Kat Von D :

-Pat over your favorite shade of Everlasting Liquid Lipstick or Studded Kiss Lipstick, such as the pitch-black Witches shade (each sold separately).

-Layer on top of your Shade + Light Eye Contour look.
-Strobe face using the Lock-It Precision Powder Brush.
-Comb through brows for supernatural shimmer.
-Mix and layer different shades within the palette for endless iridescent dimension.

I have layered Opal on top of Crystal Baby Nude lipstick by Estee Lauder. On my cheeks it has Emerald.

My last thought of this product is that I really do Enjoy it, I really didn’t want to enjoy it because of the price but I do feel like this is one product which you must have in you makeup collection. The formula is Amaaazingg, it just glides into your skin without any fall-outs. It’s just the perfect palette to glam up every look, being it nude or shimmer or smoky look, putting iridescence in your cheeks,lips,eyes,etc. You can do so much makeup looks with this and have fun at the same time. It last all day , I have tried and tasted it and I didn’t had to retouch it latter as the day passes. My only concern was Kat would have given more product or she would have knock down the price by about five bucks, than it would be a fair price range; but altogether I love playing with this palette. I hope you like the review and let me know if you would pick this palette or not and share your thoughts.

As always I will see you in my next post, till then stay happy and have fun!🤗

Xoxo 💗💗💗

  1. Lovely makeup su. ❤ Nice review . $32 is for the pallete sounds expensive but reading your review makes it worth the price ☺ looking forward to read more reviews.. subscribing ☺

  2. You look gorgeous Sunaina! The swatches look beautiful! I’d even use them as eye shadows. I’m always a bit scared of cold highlighter. I somehow feel it wouldn’t look natural on me… Great post! xoxo Sarah

  3. Great review and swatches! This is a gorgeous highlighter palette! I would have picked this one up if I didn’t already own the ABH Moonchild one, as I feel they are a little similar and don’t have a need for both. However, it’s very pretty and I love Kat Von D products!
