I've been staring at the Urban Decay Moondust palette for awhile now, and when this palette was released, I was glad that I had held off. The undertones in this palette are much warmer than what I can see in the Moondust palette...although, it's really hard to determine when solely shopping for makeup online. The closest Sephora to me is 4-5 hours away, and my local Shopper's doesn't carry Urban Decay, (though, that may have changed recently).
The undertones is where the comparison's would stop though, between Afterdark and Moondust. As Moondust shadows have a completely different texture. Afterdark is beautiful, and most pictures will not do it justice. They are jewel toned, as described, shimmery but not over the top and not glittery. Some shades have a shift in their tones. They're very soft and blend quite nicely on the eye. You will need to bring in other shadows, most likely, when doing any looks with this palette, as there are zero matte shades...but I'm OK with that, personally.
I'm extremely happy that I ordered this palette, I know that I'll get a lot of use out of it. If you have high expectations on the quality of this palette, you won't be disappointed. It's really quite lovely.
