Makeup Products: Japanese Cosmetics Ranking 2021

Best Makeup Products to Buy in Japan 2021–2022

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

@cosme hosts 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. It’s the most anticipated beauty event in Japan and so influential that awarded products tend to become even more popular or sell out in shops after the awards announcement.

In this article, I will share the latest rankings of Best Cosmetics Awards 2021 with top three makeup products including mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipsticks and more. Let’s catch up with the latest Japanese beauty trends for 2021-2022!
