Mizzu is an Indonesian cosmetic brand that focuses on eye makeup. I’ve seen their products on plenty of online shops very often, but I always hesitated to try them because I’ve never seen any of their official offline store before. I mean, this is a new brand that I’ve never heard of, I just want to make sure their cosmetics are safe and already registered on BPOM. I won’t put unknown stuff on my face -you know it’s dangerous. But it turns out that Mizzu already has BPOM certificate! So after watching Mizzu eyeshadow review from my two favorite Indonesian youtuber Suhay Salim and Nadya Aqilla, I decided to try them!
I bought the eyeshadows at BerryBenka since I can’t find their offline store in Jakarta. These are Mizzu Gradical Eye Shadow in the shade Smoky Charcoal, Smoky Latte, Natural Mocha.
The packaging has the same concept as Wardah and Emina eyeshadow. The material quality isn’t the same though. They aren’t bad but aren’t the best either because I feel that it’s slightly less sturdy. Talking about the brush that they provided in the palette, it is the BEST among all the local eyeshadow produced so far. It pickup the color so nicely and transfer it to the lid so evenly. I really really appreciate this.
Color, Texture, and Finish
Well let’s just get to the point: Mizzu eyeshadow is one of the best local eyeshadow available in the market. The texture is smooth, not hard, for the price: the pigmentation is insane. I totally regret buying Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 1 palette, I’m soooo sorry I like these Mizzu eyeshadows so much better. Just beware that this creates a lot of fall outs if you’re not being very careful. So it kinda make the pan really really messy (let’s get real people these are only around US$3 each lol -I really don’t mind).
Talking about their color, the company doesn’t give names to each color. Hmmmm, not fun. So I decided to give them names my self. Only based on my interpretation, but really, I hope you guys enjoy this as I enjoy making them ;)
Charcoal. Steel. Industrial Silver.
Charcoal. matte finish with sparkles, the color really resemble charcoal, not black (nor trying to be black), somewhat grey but darker.
Steel. shimmery satin finish, very fine shimmers, this is probably the most pigmented among all the colors that I had tried.
Industrial Silver. shimmery satin finish, very fine shimmers (not glittery)
From all of the 3 palettes that I bought, this particular one somewhat has different formula. The eyeshadows are only best applied with fingers. I feel that the brush couldn’t pickup the shimmers so the satin finish looked like matte with a few sparkles and it also makes the matte finish feels slightly chalky :/. But when I apply it with my fingers it feels and looks like the other two palette.
Pitch Black. Warm Brown. Juicy Orange.
Pitch Black. Matte finish with sparkles, a little bit patchy when it first applied, but it blends nicely. Surprisingly this black is much much more darker than MakeOver’s Black Stiletto!
Warm Brown. Satin finish, the color has a very warm undertones.
Juicy Orange. Satin finish, just bright orange.
At first, I was expecting this trio to be all-matte-finish like Wardah #G and MakeOver Emperor Brown. But it turned out that every color in this palette is shimmery. Not that I don’t like sparkles, I just thought that maybe I can write a “Matte Eyeshadow Battle” between those three brands.
Brown Taupe. Sandy Taupe. Creme Champagne
Brown Taupe. satin finish. It is a cool toned deep brown, somewhat almost olive. There’s something unique about this shade but I was not quite sure what it was. I thought this shade was ALMOST DUOCHROME, because I saw a very slight blue-ish tone although it wasn’t as intense as one of the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Definer. But oh… maybe it looked like that just because it has blue and gold shimmers to it. Haha it really fooled my eyes lol, I don’t know.
Sandy Taupe. satin finish
Creme Champange. satin finish
Overall, I definitely enjoy their choice of colors. I might consider buying more of them #kyaa because of the color selection. Very safe, basic, and classy. Not to mention the awesome pigmentation #ehem.
