Let's begin with base makeup.
We're half way into 2016 and @cosme has came up with their best new cosmetics for the first half of this year!
These products are all newly released, or at least, considered to be newer products and hence is different from the annual best cosmetics awards. Only the newer products are taken into consideration for this ranking.
Without further ado, I present to you the winners. (Translated from @cosme website)
