MIZZU SHORT MOVIE!!! | Beauty Journal X MIZZU

Quick blog update!

Went to a MIZZU event a couple weeks ago to preview their short movie. Local brands are really creative nowadays, love it.
I'm sure y'all (from Indonesia) familiar with Mizzu. Their eyeliner pen was such an instant and HUGE HUGE hit back when it first launched.
Anyway, because I'm not really a beauty junkie and quite often late to the party when it comes to cosmetics and beauty trends, I actually thought Mizzu specialized in kick-ass eyeliner pen only (and liquid lippies, their liquid lippies were quite a hit too), where in fact they have actually launched a plethora of other makeup products!! Mascara, eyeshadow, remover...
See? See? Blush on, eyeliner pencil, eyebrow products, lip liner...

Their latest product is GLAM ROCK foundation!

Not quite sure if it's launched already or not. I'm not even sure if it's like powder foundation, cushion, or what...I'm so bad at this wtf πŸ˜…

In my defense, the event was focused on the short movie, so the glam rock was only mentioned in passing by the actress who wore it in the movie. She said something along the line of how it lasts for a long time and that she only needed to touch up once or twice in a whole day of filming. Something like that. *defensive*

There were 3 activities during the event, but I was horribly late (Kemang traffic is no joke πŸ˜‘ and it was raining cats and dogs) so I kinda skipped the first one and went ahead to take some food haha.

I tried being a diligent blogger and took some photos of the surrounding while my team (I just randomly joined Yuri's team) finished the first task haha *useless teammate I was*
and I spotted something interesting. Will we make some kind of lippie concoction?? 😍

After the first activity, we got a preview of the Short Movie, titled "COMPLETE"!

Okay, this GIF not much of a preview, but the story is, there's this popular "influencer" (I hate this word, barf) who always refuses to attend events and sends back products all the time, so she's been known as arrogant and bitchy. Then, a company wants to use her, and just so happen one of the employees was the influencer's schoolmate. Thus, the journey begins in uncovering as to why this influencer is arrogant af.

Haha how's my summarising skill?
The actors. Yup, they use actual actors, not random people who'll deliver cringe-level acting.

I'm gonna be honest here, I'm not much of a nationalist when it comes to the entertainment industry in Indonesia (entertainment= movies, tv series, & music). 

I find most are cringe-worthy and too drama-laden and I'm not a fan of most of the humor used. As for music, I like some of oldie music (Sheila on 7, Chrisye, Rossa, Ebiet), but not so much the newer ones (maybe I'm just getting old lah 'cos I also don't like a lot of the current edm-heavy, clubby-vibe western music - no, I'm not trying to be hipster ok, I'm just saying I'm old). 

I do love to support local brands like Mizzu though! And there are some local movies and series that I liked when I was younger! And I love Indonesia of course (I feel like I have to add this in case people accuse me of not loving my country and its crafts)!!!

That being said, after I've watched the movie preview, it's not as cringy as I expected. The storyline is kinda interesting. I can see that a lot of work goes into the movie, it's not just some random clips put together to promote Mizzu products (they say Mizzu only appears for a split second near the end). The movie actually has a story to tell and lessons in the media life to give. 

The soundtrack is an original by The Voice winner (forgot his name, Billy something) and I think people in general will like it. So, yeah, go ahead and give it a watch when it's released on MIZZU youtube channel. πŸ’•


Moving on to the second activity...
YUP! We're actually going to make our own liquid lipstick~
This is the color that we have to recreate.

And our team actually WON this challenge!! I don't have any photo of us tho :( I brought my DSLR with me, but stupidly I forgot to bring the CF memory card wtf. All the photos, except the ones from Gisela, were taken with my phone.
Another round of food 😍 also from NOMZ.
I freaking love their unique churros. You know how churros are usually crispy outside doughy inside? These ones are CRUNCHY through and through. It has this caramelized sugar texture. LOVE IT! Pairs really well with the bitter chocolate sauce and sour strawberries. I downed 3 cups of these and when I went to get more, they're gone already 😩.

The third and final activity is a make-up estafet (relay race)~

This is the only photo I have of the race. Putting this up cos I look PRO with my itty bitty makeup sponge lol. We didn't win this race though.
And that wraps up the MIZZU X Beauty Journal event!
oh, oh, by the way, the event was held at COMO Park and there is a dog park in it!!! So exciting! It's free too, you can just bring you pup there and have a good time. Let me know if you know any dog-friendly place/park/beach around Jakarta and Tangerang area :)


Ok toodles
xo take care
