We’re always suckers for Kat Von D beauty news. Earlier this year, she announced her Too Faced collab. Now, she’s introducing a cutting edge palette with an Instagram video and a series of Snapchat and Instagram stories.

Her Alchemist palette is shaped like a triangle with a letter "A" embossed onto the front cover. She says that the design was seven years in the making. From the looks of things, it was time well-spent. But we won’t be hazarding any guesses as to what is actually contained within. “Don't even try and guess what this special ‘palette’ is, cuz I promise you won't!” Von D wrote in the caption.
