The palettes are something I think almost everyone will be drawn to. There are three to choose from and each one has been themed around a particular American city. 001 To enjoy in New York is a mix of 9 neutral shades in browns and soft purples; 002 To have fun in LA features aquas and lilacs and 003 To play with in Vegas is a bold mix of tropical brights that are definitely inspired by those of Las Vegas.
The palettes themselves are good sturdy plastic and feature a massive mirror inside to make application easy. I've been testing out the neutral New York palette and was really impressed with the colour payoff on the shades. Some of the lighter ones were a tiny bit glittery, but they all work well together to create a massive amount of looks. At £9.99 each, these palettes are amazing value and despite being a scaredy cat when it comes to colourful eye makeup, I'm tempted to buy the other two and get experimental!
I'm also loving the new Giant Blush sticks, which are a bit like giant chubby crayons made out of cream blusher. There are three shades to choose from and can either be applied straight from the stick, or using a finger. They're quite sheer, so you can build up the depth of colour you're after and wear well throughout the day. The only thing you need to be careful of is not to twist them up too high - I made this mistake and plopped out the entire blusher bit onto the floor. Massive fail on my part. £6.99 each.
GOSH are also launching their first mineral powder foundation, which I think will be a welcome addition to the high street - it's hard to find a good budget version of these. I haven't tested this one fully as the colour is too dark, but I love the special brush they've launched to go with it - it's super soft and great for buffing in mineral powder foundations. The Mineral Powder is available in 4 shades (I have the 04 Natural, 02 Ivory is the lightest) and costs £9.99. The Mineral Powder Brush will cost £7.99.
One thing that hasn't left my makeup bag since the launch is the new Defining Brow Gel. I'm horrifically lazy with my brows and very rarely colour them in. This has all changed since receiving this brow gel - the mascara-like wand makes application super quick and while you won't get a boldly shaped brow from this, what you will get is a naturally enhanced one. The gel only sits on top of hairs that are already there, so it's great for anyone after a bit of help to define their brows, without wanting to create a Cara Delevigne style look. There are 3 shades to choose from: 001 Brown is a warmer shade of brown; 002 Brown/Grey is the shade I've been using and is much cooler - great for blondes; 003 Black is the darkest of them all and is suited for naturally dark browns. At £4.99 I think this is a total bargain and I'm already planning to purchase a backup for mine in case it runs out!
Also in the new launches are five sparkling effect nail polishes in different shades of grey, eight new shades of their fantastic Velvet Touch Lipsticks and two new mascaras.
I definitely recommend a trip down to your local Superdrug to check these new launches out. All of them should now be in store and online.
