Here’s what the ‘RUSSH’ team have in their Sephora sale carts

It's Sephora sale time, and that can only mean one thing: the RUSSH team are wish-listing and restocking their can't-live-without skin, hair and makeup products. From fine hair treatments to nude lipsticks, smoky scents to silk bedding, here's everything worth securing the the sale.

So many treats, so little space in my vanity... For that reason, I'm repurchasing empties I know that I love. First up is the Christophe Robin Cleansing Thickening Paste. The texture of this takes a minute to get used to, but it's the best thing for deep cleaning and restoring volume (believe me, I have the finest hair and I've tried it all). Holifrog is a brand that flies a little under the radar, but its cleansers are some of the best I've used. The Tashmoo Milky Wash is like liquid cashmere. Try it. As for makeup, I can't resist a good neutral lip. The Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Lipsticks are super creamy and lush, but with great colour payoff. Inescapable is my favourite shade. And then the Nudestix Matte Pencil in Tamed. I know this says matte, but it's actually really hydrating. The shade is also perfect; wearable, low maintenance and works beyond the lips.

I tend to lean into the skincare-as-makeup trend, so I am definitely intrigued by the DR NAOMI One Night Stand AHA Overnight Facial exfoliator, which promises to refresh tired winter skin. And while I don’t wear a lot of mascara these days, when I do I prefer something pretty minimal – and until Glossier’s mascara is more readily available in Australia, I’m eyeing off Clinique’s High Impact Full Volume Mascara. And of course, I’m never not looking for a way to smell amazing – and Who Is Elijah’s Morning After fragrance seems like the perfect woody, spicy and warm aroma for winter.

Pat McGrath is probably one of the best make-up artists in the world, so anytime her products are included in the Sephora sale, I’m running. Particularly her sublime skin highlighter. And ever since Zoella (Zoe Sugg) years ago recommended on her Youtube channel Zoeva brushes I was hooked, and still am. They have lasted me quite a while but I do need a new powder brush. I also need a new silk pillowcase, and as sometimes they can be quite a pricey purchase I am always looking for one on sale, so I will be purchasing one from Slip for sure.

Oily skin Sephora sale recommendations incoming: the Nudestix Nudefix Cream Concealer is my favourite concealer for layering, it doesn’t crease! As for skin, I love all things Ole Henriksen. The Cold Plunge Pore Mask is my favourite for drying out breakouts on sweaty summer skin. The Dewtopia 20% Acid Night Treatment includes PHA as well as AHA so it loosens the surface nasties, too. As for hair, the GHD Unplugged Straightener is essential for travelling, lightweight and easy to pop in carry on luggage.

As a former makeup artist, I truly can never have too much makeup. It’s still an unhealthy obsession I will never give up. That being said, I have a few items already in my cart. Firstly, I want to try the Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation as I’ve heard great things. And speaking of Rare Beauty, I’m yet to try her Find Comfort range, so I think I’ll start with the Fragrance Mist and undoubtedly become obsessed.

I desperately need a restock of my Alpha-H Vitamin C Paste, and lastly, with an upcoming holiday to the US, I’ll be taking this cute and compact Huda Beauty Mini Eyeshadow palette. I’ve always loved her shadow formulas and these colours are great for summer!
