Sobocki is a Tokyo-based Polish illustrator and art director. This will be available in only one shade, 01 which was supposedly developed specially to match any Asian skintone (a rather astounding claim). The foundation is the 2016 formula with 'weather fit technology' that allows the foundation to last well regardless of the temperature and humidity level. The matching pouch is a gift with purchase of 10,000yen and above.

Maquillage Snow Beauty 2017

Maquillage continues its annual ritual of releasing a new Snow Beauty face powder on 21 September in Japan this year. The fourth generation Snow Beauty Whitening Face Powder 2017 is formulated with a new 'smooth base powder' and 'snow connecting powder' for a soft, translucent and non-powdery finish. It can be used during the day as a finishing powder and also at night as a skincare product. The case is inspired by the winter sunset scene in Prague.

Three New Base Makeup

Aside from the new Angelic Complexion Primers, Three will also be launching a new Angelic Symbiosis Foundation SPF11 PA+ (5400yen for 30g, 3 shades) and Radiant Wand Invisible concealer (3800yen, 3 shades) on 3 May in Japan. The foundation is a smoothing powder-infused oil-gel formula that does not need to be finished with loose powder. It also contains sea buckthorn oil which has high in antioxidant properties and Vitamin C. The soft mousse texture helps to provide a cool matte finish while concealing skin unevenness. What's odd is that it will be available only in three shades, given that earlier Three foundations are available in 7 to 10 shades.

Three Angelic Complexion Primer

Three will debut its new Angelic Complexion Primer SPF22 PA+++ (4200yen) on 3 May in Japan. It comes in four shades: 01 Pink Petal (for a healthy glow), 02 Just Peachy (for brightening and a more translucent tone), 03 Yellow Rose (for countering redness and sallowness) and 04 Minty Froth (for correcting redness).
