The Best Cosmetics Awards 2022 has just been released with Japan’s latest ranking of beauty products! Let’s find out the latest and the most trending beauty products of the year voted by Japanese beauty product users!

The biggest and the most influential online beauty community in Japan, “@cosme” hosts the beauty award “The Best Cosmetics Awards” twice a year in June and December, with rankings of the most popular and trending cosmetics products from various categories (skincare, makeup, body care, hair care, etc). The rankings are based on actual users’ votes, so it’s genuine and up-to-date. The Best Cosmetics Awards are top-rated and influential among cosmetics fans worldwide, and winning products tend to become even more popular or sell out quickly after awards are revealed!

In this article, I’d like to share the top three products from The Best Cosmetics Awards 2022. We will be looking into the base makeup products categorized by sunscreens, concealers, foundations, BB creams, setting powders, and more. Let’s find out the best base makeup products selected by Japanese users in 2022–2023!
