After a whole year of following beauty bloggers buying various stuff, are you guys still feel good about another new list of goods to buy? This year @cosme has nominate 196 awards out of 684,740 products. Today katkat.net will introduce the award of each category to see whether they are worth buying. If you just treat cosmetics awards as a beauty news magazine, to learn some products infomation and reviews, it would be much better than a shopping guide. After all it depends on everyone’s skin type, the environment and climate.
First of all, What is Cosmetics Awards?
Cosmetics Awards is according to the users vote result of thousands beauty products on the largest beauty infomation website of Japan(@cosme). Relatively speaking this website is not so commercial based, just like other user reveiew websites, so the reviews would be more authentic.
The site is established in 1999 and 99% of the users are female. Each year this Cosmetics Awards will choose from 10 millions products base on users’ rate.
What this awards covers?
Before 2015, Cosmetics Awards is a one-year event, after that it changes into half a year in both June and December. I always think that the list in June is a bit gimmick meaning, so I mainly concentrate on the annual list, which is released in December and is the impact of each brand marketing. There are a total of Grand Prize, Hall of Fame, Year End Best New Buys, Category and Top Beauty Trends this five units. Let’s focus on the ‘Hall of Fame’ Award. The product need to be the first in its category for continiously three years to get this title. It almost like the lifetime honorable in Japanese cosmetics industry since there are new products every day.
