Ingredients of the Detail Cosmetics Sunset Dream Eyeshadow Palette
The Sunset Dream Palette is proudly cruelty-free AND paraben-free! Here are some of its noteworthy ingredients:
- Titanium Dioxide. This is a naturally-occurring ingredient commonly found in sunscreens as a UV filter and in loose makeup powders as a pigment or brightness enhancer. This can be seen as a health hazard as TiO2 in makeup powders can potentially be inhaled. But others also say that the carcinogenic claims are not backed by enough evidence, making this ingredient safe for the skin.
- Talc. Talc is another common compound found in makeup powders like blush, eyeshadow, etc. It’s what gives the product the smooth texture that makes it super easy to apply.
- Magnesium Stearate. This is an ingredient that improves makeup’s slip, adhesion, and texture. Apart from powders, you’ll also find them in eyeliners and lipsticks.
- Caprylyl Glycol. Did you know that the skin around your eyes is one of the most dry areas on your face? That’s the reason why eye creams exist, and also why having caprylyl glycol on an eyeshadow palette can greatly benefit your skin’s health.
How to Use the Sunset Dream Palette by Detail Cosmetics

The first thing that caught my eye was the beautiful warm tones from this mix of colors. I’m definitely the girl who’s a sucker for nature-inspired palettes, so the concept of a sundown-inspired set really drew my attention.
But apart from those warm shades, I appreciate the inclusion of cooler tones as well. At first, I thought they didn’t quite fit with the theme, but palettes just aren’t complete without the whole range of colors. It’s a really well-thought-out design, too, because all the hues can be mixed and matched to create so many styles that you can use it on any occasion.
As we mentioned at the start of the review, the color payoff is simply wonderful. I was afraid that the hues would disappear on my eyelids, but I was wrong! Even the colors closer to my tone were visible, and the metallic ones were especially gorgeous under good lighting. The application is smooth when using a brush or your fingertips.
My only critique is the fallout, which is to be expected, so I make sure to put loose powder on my cheeks and under the eyes so the flecks of shadow don’t stick to my face.
This shadow palette IS the moment. When I first read the reviews, I was careful to lower my expectations, but honestly – this one didn’t disappoint! Solid hues, a variety of textures, and a unique concept behind it. It doesn’t hurt that it’s priced at below Php 420 – which is a good deal even without a sale, what more if it’s on sale?
In fact, many of Detail’s products are at around Php 250-500, which is very affordable, so I’m excited to explore more of what they have to offer. When I reach the pan on this shadow set, I’m definitely grabbing another one.
