RUSSH Loves: Beauty Favourites from May 2023

Better late than never right? We had to take some extra time to get our beauty ducks in a row this month, but boy do we have some delectable beauty faves to run by you just in time for your Euro vacay or your winter stay-cay. See all of the RUSSH team's favourite scents, serums and sunscreens, blushes, bronzers and beauty tools from the last month below.



Ultra Violette's new sunscreen mist is the ultimate mid-day makeup SPF reapplication go-to. High protection SPF and no greasy hands or smudging of your base makeup? It's almost too good to be true.


GUCCI BEAUTY Blush De Beaute in Radiant Pink

The time has come to start faking that spring-summer flush, and Gucci's Blush De Beaute will give you that sheer, natural-looking glow-from-within the winter sun refuses to give us.


LE LABO Santal 33 Body & Hair Travel Set

For those of us enviably embarking on Euro summer trips this season, this travel kit from Le Labo is the perfect coalescence of function and luxury, while not compromising on space.


FRANK BODY Brightening Body Wash

Our extremeties can often get overlooked in the colder months (out of sight, out of mind, right?), so this brightening wash with Vitamin C is a routine way to dedicate some TLC to our skin during the colder months.




They may not be seeing as much sun these days, but the cold and wind can do just as much damage to our lips. This vegan, conditioning cream-oil product will help to keep your lips nourished and hydrated.

Smouldering, smokey eyes are made easy with the creamy formulation of Sisley's Phyto-Khol Star Waterproof Eyeliner, a perfect winter makeup look.

Combat dull and tired-looking skin with this instant wake-me-up essence, a consummate primer for your serums and moisturiser.


KIEHL'S Ultra Pure High-Potency 9.8% Glycolic Acid Serum

Keep your winter skin clear and smooth, without the harshness of a physical exfoliant. Kiehl's has formulated this one to sit at the intersection of efficacy and gentleness.


THIRSTY TURTL Pacific Dusk Overnight Barrier Cream

This part-Indigenous owned, sustainability-focused skincare line is bent on making a positive impact on the planet, local communities and your skin. This overnight barrier cream is a dry winter skin saviour.


MELEROS Lipstick in Ouzo

As we shake up our makeup routine for the cooler months, why not try a dark brown or nude lip, like this gorgeous Meleros lipstick in the shade Ouzo.


CHANEL Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream

Faux or natural glow? They'll never tell with Chanel's iconic cream bronzer. Its lightweight consistency and matte finish make it versatile and easy to wear for the every day.


BREAD Hair-Gel

Accentuate your natural coils or curl pattern with Bread's Hair-Gel, a water-based styler for textured hair.



An explosion of fresh and floral notes, in the cutest bottle you've ever seen. Carolina Herrera is a romantic and vanilla-sweet little sister to its original counterpart.


GUERLAIN Terracotta Le Teint Foundation

This lightweight, no-transfer formulation is a perfect all-day-to-night base that still looks like real, natural skin – even when it's not.


SONG FOR THE MUTE Candle in Scent 001 RAIN

An olfactory experience foregrounded in gritty notes of minerals, metal and resin, and kissed with scents of pine needle, petrichor and desert flower. Each is hand-blended from sun-infused whole plant extracts grown in Kangaroo Valley.


KAT VON D Beauty Lock-It Liquid Foundation

KVD Beauty is just about the best in the biz when it comes to full-coverage, vegan-friendly foundation. Extreme coverage of everything from blemishes to tattoos.


Formulated with three types of ceramides to fight dehydration in the skin, this is the ultimate salve for dry, parched complexions.


IL MAKIAGE Infinity Lip Cream Long-Wear Matte Lip Colour

Vibrant pigmentation meets all-day matte coverage. A soft, matte finish on its own, or paired with a gloss for colour that won't budge.


VEGAMOUR Gro Hair Serum

If all those slicked-back bun days are taking their toll on your hair, try Vegamour's Gro serum to combat fallout and hair thinning.


JURLIQUE Activating Water Essence+

Hydrating layers of product on the skin help to keep the moisture locked into your complexion all day long. Jurlique's Water Essence is the perfect partner and prep step for your morning and nightly skincare rituals.


MYLES GRAY The Candle of Manifestation

Sweet musky aromas are flecked with Amazonite crystal helping you to 'align with your goals and dreams'. Wouldn't we all like a little extra help with that?


MAISON MARGIELA Diffuser In Lazy Sunday Morning

Maison Margiel have expended their 'Replica' fragrance offerings to encompass diffusers, available in a multitude of their signature scents. 'Lazy Sunday Morning' offers an olfactory experience akin to a cocoon of freshly washed linen sheets and gentle sunlight.

CAUDALIE Vinoperfect Brightening Eye Cream

French beauty brand Caudalie built this series of products around their Viniferine complex, an extract from vine stalks clinically proven to be more effective than vitamin C for brightening skin. Their eye cream targets dark circles and pigmentation to achieve a brighter, more radiant look.


CHANEL Water-Fresh Blush in Light Peach

Liquid blush that blends seamlessly into the cheeks, giving you that just-been-pinched glow with a single drop.
