@cosme 2021 Mid-Year Best Cosmetics Awards

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

Japanese beauty review site @cosme just announced its 2021 Mid-Year Best Cosmetic Awards for the site’s most popular products launched between November 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021. Since its inception in 2002, the awards have been presented every six months to the best rated products on the platform.

This year’s awards were based on 540,000 reviews written by the site’s members. Results show a continuous demand for mask-proof skin care and makeup during the pandemic. Skin care – particularly lip care – is in much higher demand than makeup. Product accessibility has also become a concern for customers due to lockdowns, leading to the rise of drugstore brands.

To check out the full list of winners, visit @cosme’s website here (Japanese only).
