Ingredients:
Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Mica, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Diisostearyl Malate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tin Oxide, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Silica, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).
Products:
The Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Transformer Mini is not the same formula as the original Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette. This shade is a pressed mineral glitter that has a clear base and fine smooth texture. This is Glitter that is pressed and can be dusted off the skin. This needs a primer., base or setting spray to keep it on the skin.

The main ingredient is Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate which is that now affordable mineral glitter "glass" that gives the high shine of the product.

Colour: 
Teal (Aquamarine) is a clear base pressed micro glitter with a prominently green shift to gold and blue glitter formula.

Wear: Although there are binders in this formula on the eye I get 3-4 hours before it complies disappear without a primer under it or glitter glue yo mix with it. On the skin, I get up to 8 hours without any products underneath it so long as you don't rub the product off. It needs a foundation base and setting spray to keep this product on the skin without it just flaking off. This is Micro Glitter. ;)

Packaging:
Simple cardboard box compact with a mirror in the lid and a magnetic for closure. This compact is small however at just slightly over 2.75" on each side of this triangle and just shy of 2 3/8th tall. The eyeshadow pans are standard size seen with MAC. The palette cover is a holographic finish over white with the cover embossed. The box art is a stamped holograph silver foil.

Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Transformer Mini in Teal (Aquamarine) is a mix of colour glitter in the shades blue and green. Naked Cosmetics Gem powders in #01 Diamond looks about more silver on my pale skin, the shades #06 Emerald and #03 Sapphire are used in the mixed in the Teal (Aquamarine) shade from Kat Von D.

Verdict:
The Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Transformer Mini in Teal is a cool pressed mineral glitter that is pressed. It is a Glitter (for the third time) and needs more products to last on the skin. But the shade is super pretty if you hate working with loose glitter this mix of green and blue is up to your ally.
