When it comes to shaking up the beauty game, we’ve always been able to count on Kat Von D to give us something truly new. So far this holiday season, she’s already blown our minds with lip clutches and epic makeup vaults. Now, it appears that was all just a warm-up for her main act, which is one of the coolest things we’ve seen this year.
When Kat teased a small, triangular palette on her Instagram recently, we instantly noticed that the packaging featured a rainbow overlay that seemed to promise wonderful things inside. In her caption, she gave us a major hint at what lay in store. “Limited quantities of our new #Alchemist palette will be available THIS WEEKEND at The Makeup Show Chicago!” she wrote. “This baby doesn’t launch until December, so you’re in for a super special treat!!”
Thanks to Instagram, we now know that December can’t come soon enough. Turns out this triangular treat is a highlighting and transforming palette in one. What exactly does that mean? The case houses four pans of holographic powder (Green Emerald, Blue Saphyre, Ultra-Violet Amethyst, and Pink Opal), each sporting an otherworldly sheen. While it looks like a very cool set of luminizers, the colors are actually meant to do more htan just highlight. Each is safe to use on any area of the face, meaning you can actually use them as “transformer shades,” layering them in tandem with eyeshadows, lipsticks, and base products to create a completely custom effect. It’s official: We’ve found the perfect way to give your entire makeup collection an opalescent upgrade. Mark those calendars, because this is one launch you can’t afford to miss!
