UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
MOTEMASCARA ONE is the top product in the MOTEMASCARA series, Japan’s best-selling mascara. Everything’s been re-examined—from the specs to how it’s made—and evolved to create an unparalleled mascara. Everything women want in a mascara is here. The package, made primarily from an "Endmineral," expresses a crystal polished to shine like a peerless jewel. The transparent materials, previously used only to make works of art, bring out a majestic sense of transparency.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The product contains a natural mineral called "Endmineral” which generates minus ion and makes the eyes look awake, a quality that was never even asked of mascara. The finish of the mascara depends on the chemistry of bulk and brush- and therefore the lift up brush was created to match the bulk. It has streamlined body so that it’s easy to grip. We created the product design to express its high performance.
