The NYC palette is the third in the Urban Decay Book of Shadows series. It contains 16 eyeshadows and comes with a travel sized primer potion plus 2 mini-sized 24/7 glide on eye liners in Zero and Ransom. This is an amazing looking palette and I was so excited to get it! The outside of the palette has 'UD NYC' embossed on it and features a pop up book style feature which shows NYC themed decorations plus a mirror and back lights! The eyeshadows themselves are in a tray which is pulled out underneath the pop up feature.

As is the norm with many Urban Decay palettes, several of the shadows have appeared in previous palettes so make sure that you check your own collection before you purchase this if you don't want any dupes!
Overall I have to say that this palette is great value and a bit of a collectors item! The size of the palette does mean that it isn't really ideal for travelling with but for everyday use it's fine. The colours are also highly pigmented and wearable and there is a real colour range to choose from in the box.
Overall 4 out of 5 stars from me!You can purchase this palette from Amazon here - Urban Decay Book of Shadow 3
