Maybelline New York and Furifu Fuse Trend with Tradition!

Date published: 1 July 2021

Japanese summers are all about festivals and yukata. Unfortunately, due to Covid, many of these festivals have been canceled. However, that doesn't mean you can't still enjoy dressing up!

Cosmetics company Maybelline New York and traditional Japanese clothing brand Furifu have teamed up to offer a new summer yukata collection called "Traditions of Japan."

These gorgeous new designs encompass both retro and modern elements, offering all the trendiness of the season's latest looks with Japan's traditional summer vibes.

These complimentary combos are guaranteed to leave you feeling cool while looking hot!

Earlier this year, Maybelline and Furifu announced their collaboration which would feature six yukata and lipstick combinations. These combinations pair original Furifu yukata with matching lipstick from Maybelline’s Superstay Matte Ink Lipstick series.

The collaboration aims to offer new fashion coordinations that blend traditional Japanese summer themes with funky New York fashion. As part of the campaign, Furifu and Maybelline have released a limited quantity of original LOVE LIP yukata, inspired by Maybelline's Super Stay Matte Ink series.

Furifu's LOVE LIP Yukata Series
Furifu is a Japanese clothing brand that designs kimono based on their own original textiles. Under their brand message, "Sugu ni kawareru mahō ga aru (There's a magic that can change things quickly)," Furifu represents women who value individuality.

The original yukata in Furifu's LOVE LIP series have been purposefully designed to match six of Maybelline’s popular Super Stay Matte Ink liquid lipsticks. The lipsticks selected are those that are believed to represent the traditional summer colors of Japan best.

LOVE LIP Yukata are available for pre-order at the Furifu store and online site.
