Review: Patrick Ta Beauty Major Dimension Eyeshadow Palette

 The celeb MUA Patrick Ta of social media fame recently added his first eyeshadow palette to his collection. It's quite pricey at $68 USD, but I was intrigued since Patrick's celeb clients always look so naturally flawless and beautiful. It's also a nude-toned palette and I've been eyeing a few of Kim Kardashian's neutral palettes, so this seemed like a nice splurge for me. Keep reading for my thoughts. :)

The packaging is stunning and matches the rest of Ta's collection. It's quite sturdy, but does collect fingerprints over time.

The palette has great longevity. I wore it with my Mac Cosmetics Painterly paint pot to prime my eyelids (mine are a bit oily). The looks I created lasted at least 9.5 hours on the eyes. For the 3 darkest mattes, the pigmentation holds up which is a must for melanated skintones. In my opinion, the blending could be more fluid/easy to work with, but this could have been the result of my eyeshadow brush since I was simultaneously testing out a new eyeshadow brush as well. I still think it falls beneath Natasha Denona shadows and Anastasia Beverly Hills shadows when it comes to seamless blending and effortlessness, but we are talking shades of degrees here.

The top center shade looks like a matte in the pan, but don't be fooled. It's actually a matte with a hint of sparker and comes off more matte on the lid with just the tiniest shift when it catches the light. This palette is great for natural or natural glam looks. The top row of glitters are chunky and apply roughly over the lids over primer so I suggest using your fingers when applying these shades. They are more of the "topper" style shadows than standard glitter shadows.

The cream shadow applies nicely over primer (I didn't try it alone). However, it does crease a bit after 5 hours on my lids.
