Stila’s In the Moment palette is filled with purple and neutral shades and like the previous “In the” palettes, is unique unto itself when it comes to finishes and colors. There is no mirror in this palette, whereas the ‘In the Light’ palette does have a mirror.
The only real dupeable shade within this palette would be Glance, in my opinion, which I feel you can find in Urban Decay’s Psychedelic Sister and MAC’s Parfait Amour. Wonder would also be comparable to Malt in the type of look you can achieve with either eyeshadow, but I feel Wonder lacks the neutral brown tones you’d find in Malt; Wonder is much more pink. Impulse reminds me a LOT of MAC’s Lovely Lily pigment, both in color and consistency. It’s a buttery shade to apply but does have a little bit of fallout, in my experience with it so far. My favorite shades in this palette are Wonder, Captivate and Impulse for their unique coloring!
Compared to previous “In the” palettes I’ve used, I did experience a little bit more fallout with this palette. It really only appeared to happen with Impulse and Instinct eyeshadows, though. And that was really only during application; once applied over primer, they stuck pretty well throughout the day. Other than those two, the rest of the eyeshadows pretty much held their own both during and after application.
Overall, I’d say if you are a purple eyeshadow fan and are looking for a new palette to try, this is a good one that will give you a lot of great looks. My favorite combos are #1, 4 and 7. How about you?!
