New Japanese Beauty Products- What To Try This Month

There is always something new in the world of J-beauty! Here are some exciting new launches that arrived at the beauty counter and aisle this month.


Uka Red Study One ¥2,200 (each, 10ml)

The power of a red manicure is undeniable, and looking towards the cooler months ahead, this timeless, iconic beauty look is making a comeback (although some may argue it never really went away). Leading the charge for the modern take on the power mani is uka’s Red Study One. A series of six beautiful red nail polish shades, that are coded according to skin tone (blue or yellow undertone) so that it takes the guess work out of choosing the perfect shade for you.

Where to buy: uka salons in Japan, uka offical online store, and check here for overseas stockists


Flower by Kenzo  Le Cushion ¥5,500

Much loved all over the world, Flower by Kenzo, the iconic powdery floral fragrance is available in a limited edition cushion compact. The cushion packaging has been cleverly used for a fragrance, and you will love this creative and practical way to enjoy applying this refreshing and reviving perfume. The light gel texture feels light as air and cool on the skin. Simply pat the  puff over the nape of the neck, decolletage, elbow and wrist to apply and enjoy the comfortable, cool gel texture and radiant fragrance. Makes perfect sense for the last few weeks of summer.

Where to buy: Japanese departments stores and Kenzo Perfume stockists around the world.
