That being said, since these powders were picked up well with a fluffy brush, these applied very well as a face highlighter and the pigment showed up remarkably much better than on the eye. All of the shades worked great for this purpose.
Overall, I was extremely let down because I really wanted to use this mainly on the lid and without having to use my fingers. I am also very underwhelmed with the size of the pans. For something that is advertised as both an eye and face palette, this is a very small amount especially when you compare it to the Anastasia Beverly Hills MoonChild palette which has bigger pans, more color selections thus also having a better price value which is $40. I do not own the Moonchild palette so I cannot comment on its quality but I would recommend you consider the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moon Child palette before purchasing the Kat Von D palette.
I also prefer Sugarpills Loose Eyeshadow in the shade Lumi. Lumi is also an iridescent shadow which I personally found easier to work with even though it has more glitter particles in it.
The Alchemist palette an average palette and I will still definitely work with it but I am not as happy with it as I thought I was going to be.
-cute and unique packaging
-comes with a mirror
-not as pigmented as I would like them to be.
-not a good price value of $32 for 4 x0.05oz of product
-marketed as a face palette yet the shadows are standard eyeshadow sizes
-eyeshadows work best used with a fluffy brush or fingers
I hope you guys have a lovely sunday and an even lovelier rest of the week :)
Thank you for stopping by:)
