Base Makeup Products: Japanese Cosmetics Ranking 2021 Mid-Year

Best Base Makeup Products to Buy in Japan 2021

The Best Cosmetics Awards 2021 Mid-Year by @cosme has just been revealed with the latest rankings of Japanese cosmetics products! @cosme is Japan’s largest online beauty portal/shopping website, where you can get up-to-date and trustworthy information about Japanese beauty products based on real users’ voices.

The Best Cosmetics Awards are held twice a year in June (mid-year) and December (year-end), introducing the best cosmetics products by category based on reviews by strict cosmetics users in Japan. The mid-year awards feature only newbie beauty products that are released in Japan in the first half of the year, so you can check out the most trending beauty products. This beauty event is so influential that awarded products tend to become even more popular or sell out in shops after the announcement.

Today, I’m going to share the latest rankings of new base makeup products 2021 including sunscreen, primer, foundations and BB cream. Let’s catch up with the latest Japanese beauty trend with the Best Cosmetics Awards 2021 Mid-Year!
