Instant Light Complexion Base in 04 Apricot ($37 CAD for 30ml, limited edition)
If you hate wearing foundation but still want something that will even out your skintone, this might be what you are looking for! It has a beautiful luminous finish and the coverage is quite sheer, but it looks very natural! It can be worn alone or under your favorite foundation to improve make-up wear.

If your skin has olive or golden undertones, 04 Apricot will be too pink for you so you might want to check the other limited edition shade (05 Golden Caramel) which seems to be less pink toned.

Clarins Waterproof Eye Pencil 5 Aquatic Green Review

Waterproof Eye Pencil in 05 Aquatic Green ($26 CAD for 1.3g, limited edition)
I love the formula, it's creamy but not too much so it's still opaque when you smudge it with the sponge tip, and I like that it doesn't dry too fast. The staying power is really good, it's not completely waterproof but it's water-resistant, which means that it will flake off and smudge if you rub your eyes with warm water, but if you cry and gently pat it dry, it won't budge.

Oh and even if this pencil is water resistant, you don't need an oil based makeup remover. A good micellar water will do the trick!

Truly Waterproof Mascara in 03 Aquatic Green ($27 CAD for 7ml, limited edition)
I love this mascara, it's one of the best waterproof mascara I've tried that doesn't leave smudges on my brow bone when it's hot and humid outside. It add volume, hold the curl all day (like most waterproof mascaras) and doesn't flake off!

The color is definitely subtle on me, but I like that it's not too bright! You can get it in black too if you prefer, click here to read my review.

Aquatic Treasures Summer Bronzing Compact ($42 CAD for 20g)
If bronzers have a tendency to look muddy on you, I think you will love this one because it has warm undertones! It contains 4 shades so you can use it all year round. This powder is incredibly soft and finely milled, it's easy to blend and the color payoff is great. I like the matte finish too!

That being said, the color is a bit too peachy for me. It's not orange, but the peachy-pink undertones don't look natural on my golden-olive skin tone. Let's just say that I prefer neutral or golden bronzers, and they rarely look muddy on me anyway.

Ombre Iridescente Cream-to-Powder Eyeshadows ($24 CAD for 7g, limited edition)
Last but not least, the eyeshadows! 3 new shades are available : 01 Aquatic Rose, 02 Aquatic Green and 03 Aquatic Grey. These eyeshadows have a beautiful texture, they don't really feel creamy to me but they are buttery smooth and highly pigmented even without a primer. The finish is very shimmery but not glittery.

The shade 01 Aquatic Rose is absolutely beautiful on the inner corner or all over the lids with a brown eyeshadow on the outer v!
