I use all these products on either a daily or weekly basis which is pretty rare for me as I have so much crap.
MAC 239 brush: I really don't know how I managed to get my eye makeup looking decent before I had this (I probably didn't). With regards to brush hair density, it does very well. They're tightly packed but you can get away with laying down and blending too. It's not my blending brush, simply because it's not meant for blending. If you're lazy/doing a look with bright colours, get this brush and you won't be sorry. You can use it for crease work too, I switch it up between the 239 and the Revlon brush.
Maybelline Colossal mascara: This is probably my all time favourite High Street mascara. I use this every day and it has been going strong for a long long time. I love this and my Prestige mascara but I think this slightly has the edge as it's foolproof and I get the same results regardless of how I apply it. Thick, long, black lashes.
YSL Teint Parfait: I blab on about this foundation a lot. It was the first thing I ever reviewed on my blog but I'll give you a quick review of it now. It's an oil free "foundation". I say " " because you can use it as a primer if your skin is not behaving. I like the fact that it has a dual personality like that because once I put it on, it doesn't come off unless you take it off. If you have oily/combo skin and want a foundation which makes you look dewy, buy this and you won't be sorry. The single best thing about this foundation is being photographed..you look airbrushed.
I've got a swatch for you and it's clear it doesn't match the skin on my hand but it blends in seamlessly on my face.
Dove Therapy Heat Defence spray: I really like this. I feel that it does protect my hair from heat and it leaves my hair looking shiny after I've straightened it and it smells quite nice. It makes my hair feel softer too so I've started using it even when I keep my hair curly. The best thing about it is that you can be heavy handed and it won't grease your hair up which is brilliant.
The Body Shop Facial Massager: I was intrigued with this when I first saw it online and decided to buy it when I saw it in store. I use this on a weekly basis. It smoothes my skin out a treat. I also find that after using it, my skin absorbs moisturiser a lot better and it feels clean, like it's been drained of toxins. It leaves my skin nice and pink after using it so I can feel that there is some massagey benefit there. There's a full review here.

YSL Palette Pop: I have had this for a long long time and it's a tester. I don't know why I'm always saying that..but it is. I think it's because I'm in shock that a tester lasts so long. I use this on a daily basis, it's my "no effort" blush. It looks so natural on me that you can't even tell that I'm wearing it most of the time. People only notice that I don't look so perky when I don't have it on.
Revlon Foundation brush: There's a full review here. It's all good. The brush is totally foolproof and works brilliant when the operator is functioning on around 5 hours sleep. It costs about a tenner from Superdrug.
Revlon Blusher brush: I'm sure this brush was made just for me. It fits the cheek area perfectly, stays soft and yet is dense enough to pick up just enough product. The full review is here. I think this comes in at around a fiver or so..it's less than a tenner!
