Autumn seems sleepier, a more languid and lackadaisical season, hallmarked by a sharp turn toward balmy weather and shorter daylight hours. As we come to the completion of our first trimester of the season, we're turning to supple and hydrating skin treatments, and richer, warmer and spicier scents for the home, hair and body. Here, we break down our March 2023 beauty favourites.
YSL Beauty Rouge Volupté Shine
We're making way for lips in warm earthy reds, acorn browns and just-bitten fuchsias for autumn. YSL Beauty's Rouge Volupté Shine Lipsticks tempt us with the promise of all the shine and dazzling colour we're searching for.
Sisley - Paris Stylo Correct Concealer
A multi-tool of sorts, Sisley's Stylo Correct Concealer is at once a high-coverage correcting pen, and a targeted blemish-soother. The wide shade range leaves skin luminous and will ensure a flawless complexion all day long.
Dermalogica - Phyto Nature Oxygen Cream
Clinical formulation and pared-back ingredients are core to Dermalogica's skincare ethos. Their Phyto Nature Oxygen Cream reawakens and firms tired skin, plumping fine lines for a more radiant complexion. You can learn more about the product and its impact in our interview and shoot with Dermalogica and Christelle Scifo.
Gucci - Éternité de Beauté Foundation
Long days bleed into even longer nights as we see the daylight wane through the autumnal season. Gucci has you covered with their 24-hour, full-coverage, no-transfer foundation, which proffers both luminous skin and a mattified effect.
Jo Malone London - Cologne Intense in Myrrh & Tonka
A rich, sensuous and masculine scent to transport you to the sand dunes of southern Africa, Jo Malone London's Myrrh & Tonka cologne bottles a warm and exotic aroma, with just a little bit of spice. Friends of RUSSH fell in love with the scent during our evening of art and intensity, celebrating the Cologne Intense range with Mikkapedia at China Heights.
Oribe - Hair Alchemy Strengthing Masque
With buttery soft packaging and a promise to make your hair the same - Oribe is a pioneer in haircare innovation and luxury. This strengthening masque utilises caster seed oil to protects and seal, and cold pressed yacon root to nourish.
Fenty Beauty - Fenty Icon Velvet Liquid Lipsticks
The liquid lip has a new tool in its arsenal, taking the form of Fenty's Icon Velvet Liquid Lipsticks. Your bold matte lip will never again be marred by fine lines or dryness, replaced instead with a supple and creamy product in head-turning hues.
Chanel - Coco Mademoiselle Hair Perfume
Leave your mark with the turn of your head with Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle Hair Perfume. Created specifically for use on the hair, it's a delicate, fresh and amber-noted fragrance, ideal for the autumn months.
Clarins - Bright Plus Vitamin C Complex
If you've taken your summer apricating too far, this concentrated vitamin C treatment will help to brighten the appearance of dull skin and dark spots. The two-layer packaging means the formula is only mixed upon application, so you know the product is active and effective every time.
Peppermint Grove - Soy Candle in Persimmon & Lily
Persimmon season is about to be in full-swing here in Australia, but you can welcome the sweet scent into your living spaces as well as your fridge with Peppermint Grove's luxurious Persimmon & Lily soy candle. A coalescence of fruity and floral, it's bound to have you salivating.
Charlotte Tilbury - Cryo Recovery Mask
If you're looking for an excuse to indulge, well this is it. Charlotte Tilbury's Cryo Recovery Mask uses cooling metal beads to target acupressure points in the face, relieving tension and reviving skin.
D.S. & DURGA Eu De Parfum in Plumes
If the bygone summer season feels just a little too far out of reach, perhaps a signature tropical scent will keep it close to the heart (and pulse points). D.S. and Durga's Plumes perfume is a tropical holiday bottled, with notes of coconut, frangipani, tuberose and jasmine vines.
IKKARI The Apothecary Hand & Body Balm
Natural botanicals are at the forefront of IKKARI's Apothecary Hand & Body Balm. A restorative salve for the hands or body, you'll be soft, supple and nourished from the outside in.
Heartwood - Royal Treatment Sheet Masks Pack
With so many long weekends ahead in April, it's about time we sourced some travel-friendly self care treats to take with us on weekend trips away. Heartwood's Royal Treatment Sheet Masks are plane and planet friendly.
Benefit - Fluff Up Brow Wax
We should all know by now that Benefit know what they're talking about when they're talking about brows. Their Fluff Up Brow Wax is the perfect tool for that perfectly fluffy soap-brow look, and it promises to hold any unruly hairs in place all day.
PAX Polish - Nail Colour + Treatment in 109 Amelia
Nail polishes can often be stripping, but PAX offers a chance to combine both colour and treatment as one. Nutrient-rich ingredients mean that you'll be doing favours for your nail bed health without having to remain unmanicured.
