Let’s dive inside the Patrick Starrr Visionary eyeshadow palette – from his new One/Size cosmetics line!
When Patrick Starrr launched his new cosmetics line One/Size with makeup spray and wipes, I wasn’t that intrigued. An eyeshadow palette on the other hand? You better believe I was hopping on Sephora.com at midnight to get my hands on it the very moment it dropped. After all, nothing sparks my creativity quite like a new eyeshadow palette and I’m always on the hunt for the next best formula.
If I’m being honest, I’ve never watched Patrick Starrr’s YouTube channel. My association with him stems from his partnerships with MAC Cosmetics and watching him strut his stuff at The Blonds runway show during New York Fashion Week. To me, he oozes personality and is a champion for unapologetically being yourself. And who doesn’t love that message? We love a confident legend!

Soft, Rich Formula
Right out the gate, I want to stress how soft and rich the Patrick Starrr Visionary eyeshadow shades all are! I of course expected that to be the case from Patrick Starrr, but with the price tag of $42 I was worried the quality wouldn’t be as smooth. Fortunately, that wasn’t at all the case. They have a softness to them that will require you to tap off your brush to avoid fallout, but they apply smoothly to the eye. The formula actually reminds me quite a lot of the Tati Beauty Textured Neutrals palette and I kind of wonder if Patrick was inspired by that.
Let’s Discuss that Cobalt Blue
While beautiful in the pan, I confess I was quite skeptical that the cobalt blue shade Blue Mon Dieu would apply smoothly on the lids. Every similar shade to it I’ve ever come across has been dry and difficult to work with. When touching the product, I could tell the shade was a touch more dry than the other shadows included in the Patrick Starrr Visionary eyeshadow palette so that skepticism only continued.
But wow, guys. I was wrong. It is to me the standout shade of the entire palette because of how strongly it performs! It definitely out matches the Nabla Poison Garden palette’s blue I’ve continued to fight with for a year now. And while the shadow is an obvious standout from a largely neutral palette, the success of this blue makes me really really excited to see Patrick Starrr have fun with more colorful palettes in the future. My guess is he wanted to start his line off with a neutrals because every line needs a basic neutral palette, but he has the formula DOWN and I can’t wait to see what else he churns out.
Marathon Length Wear Time
I’ve worn this palette four days in a row, from morning to night with much of my day being spent running around outdoors. Given those conditions, I think it’s fair to say I’ve put these shadows through the RINGER this week. No matter what color story I was creating, I came home with my eyeshadow looking as great as it did when I left home in the morning.
Initially I thought well oh, maybe it’s because I wore the eye popper on top and that locked things is but no – the shadows last just as well on their own. It’s remarkable!!!
Great Pigmentation & Blend Beautifully
The mattes especially of the Patrick Starrr Visionary eyeshadow palette are on their A-game. They also remind me quite a bit of Dior eyeshadows in the way they basically blend themselves out. If you’re a newbie to eyeshadow or someone who just likes to pull a look together quickly, this palette could be a real winner for you.
Available at One/Size and Sephora
Usually with these YouTuber beauty brand launches, the products are independently sold from the creator’s website. So I was absolutely delighted to see that Sephora was on board with carrying the full Patrick Starrr One/Size brand right out that gate! That’s a true testament I think in how much they believe in his products as well as the future of his brand.
It also made for super convenient shopping as I was able to pick the palette and eye topper up along with some other skincare essentials I was running low on.
In addition to the Visionary Eyeshadow palette, Patrick Starrr also launched a gel liner, liquid liner and a sparkling eye popper shadow in 5 shades. Already having a vast assortment of gel and liquid eyeliners on hand at the moment, I decided to skip on those but absolutely wanted to give the eye topper a try!
Eye Popper Sparkle Vision Liquid Eyeshadow
I opted for the shade “Let’s Pump” which has a glittery bronze finish. You can wear the eye popper entirely on its own, or as I prefer — atop your eyeshadow to really add an extra something special.
The 5 shades available are:
- LET’S PUMP: Bronze (photographed in this post)
- P-HOUSE: Champagne
- EVERYTHING AND MORE: Rose gold
- CONTINENTAL: Gold
- DEATH DROP: Black
Some really great news on these glittery eye toppers is that they do not FLAKE. When blended out with your finger, they also smooth out nicely across your lid and set in a way that does not crease. Hallelujah!!
Patrick Starrr Visionary Eyeshadow Palette Rundown:
- Smooth, rich and creamy formula
- Loaded with pigment
- Blends easily, great for beginners
- A versatile neutral palette that also has a bit of fun with the iridescent and cobalt blues
- Long-lasting formula that is heat and humidity proof!
- 100% vegan
- Made in the USA
- Very reasonably priced at $42 (great value, imo)
- Immediately available at Sephora
- Missing a shimmering champagne. I wish one of the medium browns was swapped out for that.
- Not the most original color selection, but one I understand as Patrick builds his line.
Overall Grade: A
Guys, I’m giving both the Patrick Starrr Visionary eyeshadow palette AND the glittery eye toppers an A rating! I honestly didn’t expect to like this palette as much as I do. I thought it would be a fine palette that I was glad to purchase in support of Patrick but one I wouldn’t really reach for much again. But, it is a winner!
I’m so impressed by how smoothly the shadows perform on the eyes and how LONG they last! I also cannot even count how many compliments I have received on my eyeshadow this week when wearing the palette. In addition to just being nice, compliments mean it’s not just me who’s impressed by the palette — the general public is as well. Priced at $42, I also think the palette is an excellent value. The eye toppers at $22 maybe aren’t such a great value, but they really do add something special when worn.
I also have to stress how great I think the palette will be for beginners. If you’re looking for a gift for someone who is just starting out in makeup, I really don’t think you this palette will steer you wrong. Well done, Patrick Starrr!!
