So today we wanted to rave about the forever blinding Alchemist Holographic Palette by Kat Von D. Now just as a warning, this palette will blind you so you better be prepared with what’s going to happen.
OMG even the packaging is blinding.
Okay so basically this palette claims to be formulated with double-dimension technology which means it dips 360° refractive pearls in a prismatic coating which will deliver twice the transforming power. At first we were a little skeptical of that claim simply because SO many highlighters have failed us or just didn’t live up to expectations so when brands come out with these HUGE claims we are always a little skeptical. BUT MAN WERE WE WRONG. ONE SWIPE AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND. It is so RIDICULOUSLY pigmented and even though the colours are a little crazy, all can be forgiven. After using this you really can’t switch back to a regular highlighter. It just doesn’t do the trick anymore.
Now the good thing about these highlighters is that you can use it EVERYWHERE; on your lips, cheeks, collarbone, eyes, cupid’s bow just wherever you want. Now before you say that ‘oh you can do that with any highlighter’ this one for us is just a little nicer because of the shades and you can really play around with it.
The pigmentation of the four shades is amazing and even though one swipe is practically enough, you can still build up the intensity which is nice. The staying power is alright, wouldn’t say it is amazing but not bad. However it does get a little annoying when the colour starts to fade throughout the day and even though it is still glowing, it just isn’t the same shade as the one you applied earlier on the day.
The main selling point for this palette is probably the versatility of it, you can really make some stunning new shades with this and no matter what makeup look you’re going for, a dab of this just really perfects the look.
This product retails for USD$32.00 and AUD$50.00. We think that it is a very reasonable price point seeing that it is from Kat Von D and you do get 4 shades to choose from so for us it was quite reasonable.
