Papillon Magazine Volume 3: Special Beauty Issue!

✨ Papillon Vol.3 is out now!! ✨ It's been about two years since we started working on Volume 3, and we're so happy to see that there are still people waiting for us to finally release it!!

This will be the last volume of Papillon Magazine! The magazine has been our baby since we started back in 2019 and we are super happy with everything we have managed to do in these years... we never imagined our blog would hit 10.000+ views monthly or that we'd be the first gaijin magazine to release physical copies!

Its been incredibly fun to work with all our beautiful gyaruo and gyaru and we think this is a good time to say goodbye. And of course our website and magazine will continue to be available to all for free ✨

🦋 What does Volume 3 have to offer?

Our Special Beauty Issue is sure to leave no-one disappointed! This Volume is so jam packed with tutorials that if you were to try them out it might take you just as long as it took us to finish it 😂

Makeup Tutorials from our Pro Artists Kitt & Motoko
How to Namidabukuro
Contour Comparison
Looks With Glasses & Without Lenses
Broke Bitch Guide
Lots and lots of makeup tutorials
& More!

Along with a super special Pajama Spread!

🦋 Will there be a physical version?

Yes!! But since this is our last run we will be running a short reservation period from the 8th to the 16th of March in our Ko-Fi shop for those interested in owning a physical copy ✨ Don't hesitate to grab yours as it will be the last chance to!

🦋 Read Volume 3 here!

We hope you will share with us what you thought of Volume 3 either down in the comments section or tag any of our socials with your thoughts of the mag! Big thanks to our editors for the hard work, as well as our artists, beauty gurus and all the wonderful models that participated in this issue.

As always we appreciate all the love and support we have received until now. Lets continue to be wild & sexy and giving gyaru all our hearts. Thank you so much for everything.
Lots of love,

Papillon Magazine Team

  1. Bittersweet for things to finally come to an end, but looking back, I'm incredibly proud of what we were able to accomplish. We worked with so many creative & talented gals and were able to do so many fun & interesting interviews/spreads/etc. Learned so much working for Papillon; the experience and memories I gained will definitely be with me forever 💗 Congrats on our third volume and final issue 🎉🎉🎉 The biggest thanks to anyone who has ever worked with us and contributed to Papillon!!! ❤💕 Very grateful I got to be part of it ❤❤❤

  2. Enjoyed every second of this volume! Chock-full of great material, tutorials and just beautiful people ( ˙꒳​˙ )~ I mean so many good makeup tips and step by step tutorials. This beauty volume is a great detailed introduction to anyone getting into Gyaru.👍 My top fave sections of this volume are the Summer Seaside tutorial, the Broke B-tch Guide, and the Slumber Party spread (it's so cute)!

    I'm forever grateful to the Papillon team for inviting me to be a part of this project. ♥ So sad to see Papillon go, but it was a blast while it lasted! Definitely picking up a physical copy, thank you team for all your hard work!
