When the Eyes Are The Window palettes came out, I was instantly drawn to the shade "Mind". But, I realized that looked extremely close to a Stila palette I already had, the In The Know palette. Swatching them, I found that they were extremely similar so I figured that a comparison was in order. To see my review of the In The Know Palette, click HERE. To see my review of the Mind Palette, click HERE. Colors from the In The Know Palette will be called ITK and colors from the Mind Palette will be called M.
If I had to choose between the two Stila palettes, I would definitley chose the In The Know Palette. It costs $10 less, comes with an eyeliner and the formula of the shadows is much better. The In The Know shadows are softer than the Mind shadows and they have much better color payoff. The Mind Palette does have two more shades, but I find the In The Know to be a better deal.
