It was also admittedly inspired by science, specifically the ancient discipline of alchemy. This Alchemist formula allows the user to customize and transform everything from eyeshadow to lipstick to blush to bronzer in one swipe. Yes, really. It's like a secret weapon or special ingredient that takes a common product or widely available shade and allows you to make it your own because #layering. Then Alchemist Palette boasts four circular shades and will retail for $32. Where and when can you buy the Kat Von D Alchemist Palette and how do you get it early?!

There is an update and you need to pay attention. The Alchemist will be available in various stages at Sephora. Sephora VIB members will have pre-launch access on Dec. 18. It will then land on Dec. 24 at Sephora.com. Therefore, if you happen to get any Sephora gift cards before actual Christmas Day, you may want to use them on Xmas Eve! The Alchemist Palette will land in Sephora stores on Jan. 5 if you want to experience it live and in person.

It's truly makeup magic and you can see just how versatile the shades are when swatched against bare skin of three different skin tones. It's incredible.

Observe.

Imagine what these four shades can do to transform, say, a red lipstick or a purple eyeshadow? It really and truly will let you change up your existing products whenever you feel like it. It will add an iridescent finish to any product, per the brand's Insta post. The Alchemist shades are meant to be worn over other products! It's not just a gamechanger — it's a shade-changer, quite literally.

How about that packaging? It's a nice change of pace, since Kat Von D Beauty is known for matte, black, and goth inspo packaging.

Kat Von D-evotees with Sephora VIB status, which is earned through purchases, are no doubt happy about getting early access.
