Sephora Collection Colorful by Craig & Karl Eyeshadow Duos

Oooh boy am I a sucker for pop art designs and bright colours, and the Colorful Shadow Duos from Craig & Karl are really taking the Sephora Collection to the next level.

Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow Duos Craig and Karl review 2
Craig and Karl are two designers—one based in New York and the other in London—known for their humorous and quirky graphics. For Sephora, they let their imaginations run wild and decided to reinterpret the Colorful 5 eyeshadow palette from their own unique perspective.

Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow Duos Craig and Karl London Eye
LONDON EYE – A light matte pink paired with a warm matte grey.

These both have fairly good pigmentation, but the grey can come off a bit patchy if you aren’t careful.

Wearing the pink shade all over and the grey lightly in the crease and more heavily in the outer V.

I also laid a bit more down on the lash line for extra depth.

Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow Duos Craig and Karl Hue York
HUE YORK – A light peachy pink paired with a bold matte purple.

The peach shade is very pigmented and has a tiny bit of luminosity. The purple is a gorgeous color, although needs about 2 layers to build colour.

Wearing the peach on the lid and outer corner with the purple blended softly in the crease.

The purple really does blend really nicely, although it does lean on the sheer side.

Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow Duos Craig and Karl Double Decker
DOUBLE DECKER – A neutral white semi-matte paired with peach with a slight shimmer.

On their own, this duo doesn’t quite make a full eye look, BUT what these are perfect for is transitioning in the crease and highlighting.

Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow Duos Craig and Karl Bowery Blues
BOWERY BLUES – A soft mint green matte paired with an ocean blue turquoise matte.

I was expecting a bit more punch from both the shades to be honest, but the green is quite a nice lid colour.

For this look I used both the Bowery Blues and Double Decker duos.
Bowery Blues – mint green on the lid and in the inner corner; turquoise in the crease and out.

Double Decker – peachy shade as the transition and the white under the browbone.

Overall, I am 50/50 on these. While I like the design, Bowery Blues and London Eye were a bit disappointing. Double Decker has become my everyday staple for transition and highlight, and I use Hue York a lot (mostly for the purple).

The Color by Craig & Karl Shadow duos are $13 USD each, available online at Sephora.com. These are NOT currently available to ship to Canada from the online store but they are in stores.
