This is a really good foundation. I find that the coverage is medium to full. I use the shade Toast and find that to be a close match for my skin. In Canada this foundation can be over $20, however I was able to get it on sale for $13.99 which I think is reasonable for a drugstore foundation. One of the things I like most about this foundation is that the colour really does stay on all day, while good for my skin it's a pain to remove from my foundation brushes. But other than that, I have not really had any problems with it. The next time I see this on sale I will definitely consider repurchasing!
This is a gorgeous colour, it looks like a greenish silver.I think it's quite unique. I do not have the Chanel Graphite so I cannot compare the two. I bought it on sale for $2.99Cdn, so it was a great deal!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

I have been using this moisturizer for a few months now, and I have to say that I really like it. It usually provides the right amount of moisture for me. I used to use it in the morning as well as night, but in the winter time my skin gets more dry so it is not always enough. When my skin is more dry, I like to use this in the morning and something that provides more moisture at night. The price is not bad, I have the 1.7oz size and that has lasted me quite awhile. It is actually not that more expensive than some drugstore moisturizers. When this runs out, I will be purchasing it again.
Conditioner -TiGi - Catwalk Honey & Oatmeal conditioner [DISCONTINUED]

I find this to be at best an average conditioner. It is recommended for dry/damaged hair so I thought that it would be quite moisturizing, unfortunately it is not. I feel like this conditioner leaves my hair looking dull. I have had better results with drugstore conditioners that are a fraction of the price. I also have the shampoo, and I actually find that to be a bit better, as it doesn't dry my hair out. What I did like about this was that it smells amazing. I think the only time I would consider purchasing this again would be in the summertime, when I do not need as much conditioning.
Mascara -Estee Lauder - Projectionist High Definition Volume Mascara

I received a sample of this mascara as a GWP. I really like it, it adds volume and length with just a couple of coats. I have not had any problems with clumping or smearing. I prefer not to purchase high end mascaras since I throw them out every 3 months, but I really like the results I get with this one and would consider purchasing the full size.
