Pokémon Cosmetic Series: New Face Masks Keep Pokémon Trainer’s Skin Moisturised

12.June.2020 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION

Monosense is set to release the third collection of face masks in the popular Pokémon Cosmetic Series on June 19, 2020.

 

The Pokemon cosmetic series has been a huge success in Japan since it launched, spanning face maskshand creamlip creamlip glosspoint packs, mirrors, and body gel. The face masks however have proven the most popular, having sold over 600,000 of them. Now, Pokémon Trainers can look forward to the third collection in an all new 2020 version.

Until now, the face masks themselves have had an entire print of a single Pokémon face on them. This time, however, they have a new design with many of that Pokémon on them, along with colours that remind one of that Pokémon.

 

Skin can get pretty dry when summer rolls around, so these made-in-Japan face masks will keep Trainers’ skin moisturised thanks to the collagen, hyaluronic acid, and shea butter in them.

 

There are four Pokémon to choose from: Pikachu, Eevee, Psyduck, and Mew. Who will you choose?

  • NiziU Feature in Commercial for KOSÉ’s Makeup Fix Product Make Keep Mist EX

    17.April.2021 | FASHION / MUSIC

    KOSÉ rolled out their new commercial in Japan on April 15 for their makeup fix mist product Make Keep Mist EX. The commercial features Japanese music group NiziU along with their new song I AM.

    I AM was written specifically for this commercial, which has the NiziU members performing the “mist dance” showing how to use the product. The commercial emphasises how well the Make Keep Mist EX keeps makeup applied to one’s face without worrying about it coming off.

     

    The NiziU members released this comment with regards to the product and commercial: “Applying makeup can be a real pain when wearing a face mask, so we use this all [product]! We’d love for you to do this dance while you apply your Make Keep Mist!”

     

    If you’re wondering how the shoot went for this commercial, check out the official story released below. 

     

    The Commercial Shoot

    The NiziU members entered the studio dressed in full-pink spring suits. They rolled up to the studio’s blue set where they looked super cute and readied themselves for the shoot.

     

    The take-away from this commercial is the new Mist Dance which has the nine members lined up beautifully together as they spray the mist on their face simultaneously to the tune of the music. It’s reported that it took them a while to get it down perfect at first, but after some practice and looking at the monitor, they were able to create something iconic.

    “Do it like RIO!” instructed the shoot’s director, which prompted RIO to show the other members how it’s done.

     

    During their break, the other members complimented MAKO’s blonde hair and MAKO’s blue tips, and MIIHI stroked RIKU’s dango hair while saying “Looky here, ice cream! Looks delicious.”

    In one part of the dance, the members have to go all out and use their whole bodies. They switch up their formations several times and not once did they bump into each other. The members gave tips to each other too, like MAYUKA suggesting a better position during one formation, and RIMA asking which angle looks more beautiful for a certain move in relation to the camera. The result was an incredible display that was shot in one take, resulting in a round of applause from the studio staff.

     

    Check out the commercial below.

     

    Make Keep Mist EX

    The new EX version of Make Keep Mist has stronger holding power to keep makeup smudge-free and looking fresh and beautiful all day. The product is available in a normal size and smaller ‘trial’ size. A new cool type, Make Keep Mist EX Cool, was released on April 16.

     

    Make Keep Mist EX ¥1,320 / Make Keep Mist EX Trial Size ¥880 / Make Keep Mist EX Cool ¥1,320 (Tax Included)

The theme for this one is ‘travel fragrance.’ Because of COVID, our time spent outdoors has gone down dramatically, but smells tied to our memories make up part of us all. And smelling them brings back those memories. This is a blend of sweet, sophisticated lily and refreshing jasmine, so it’s a really easy one to use that can be enjoyed by both guys and girls. We’re also opening our first pop-up shop so please be sure to drop by to try out!”
