I find Stilla Palette's OK, the Kat Von D is far superior in blending and pigment. It is warm in tone with a few cooler shades. Great for me since I have a yellow under tone to my skin. I find the Kat Von D versatile and I mix the shades with other palette's I own.

I've tried the stila in the know palette and I feel that the ladybird palette is more pigmented

There is so much versatility in this palette its crazy! I have hazel eyes, my mom has blue, and my best friend has green yet I can still use every single color on all of us and make it look awesome! I don't know if Kat did this on purpose or not either but the colors next to each other can pair in two for an easy "smokey" eye. The purple with the pink, the grey with the navy, the tan with the hazelnut, the dark mocha with the burnt orange. But it's also easy to mix them around to get any kind of eye makeup look.

This palette is a lot warmer and deeper (slightly darker in value) than Stila's In the Know. "In the Know" has 10 shadows, whereas Ladybird has just 8. In the Know is more neutral and natural with slightly more color variety (some shades have warmer undertones, some cooler, and some with subtle pink/grey undertones). Ladybird, on the other hand, has 4 somewhat bold colors: Cleopatra (deep purple), Unrequited (bluish black), Vespertine (the medium-dark warm brown), and Fur Elise (the orange... which is strikingly similar to "Fire", the orange shade in "In the Know"). Ladybird's other 4 shadows are very neutral and have similar undertones (taupe/beige). "In the Know" is easier to blend, whereas "Ladybird" is a bit difficult to blend. Hope this helped!
In the comparison photo, I am missing two colors from "In the Know": Air and Ebony.
