GOSH's new releases for winter include three new eyeshadow palettes, each boasting nine shades themed around a US city. There's Vegas, which is full of shimmering brights; LA, with jewel toned blues and purples; and New York, with a more purple-ish take on neutrals. I've got the New York palette to show you today.
Packaging wise, the pretty cardboard sleeve (which has a handy indication of the enclosed shades along the side) encases what's a very plain looking palette. Whilst sturdy enough, the basic black plastic palette doesn't hold itself closed very well - it looks like it's a plastic snap closure, but mine doesn't actually snap shut.
Inside, the pans are reasonably large in size, and there's a good mix of matte and shimmer finishes.
None of the shades are metallic, with most having a fairly satin-y finish.
All in all then, the New York palette has some lovely shade options if you like neutral toned purples, and taupes - it's a bit more varied and interesting than Naked-type palettes. I'm a little disappointed that the textures are so powdery, but given that the palette is a mere £9.99 for nine shades (£1.11 each!) I can't complain too much. The New York, Vegas and LA palettes are available now in Superdrug stores.
