  • Girl Group NiziU Named Brand Ambassadors for Visée, Introduce Limited-Edition Eyeshadows

    10.September.2021 | FASHION / MUSIC

    Cosmetics brand KOSE has announced that popular girl group NiziU will act as brand ambassadors for a new collection of Visée eyeshadow, Glossy Rich Eyes N.

     

    Visée Glossy Rich Eyes N  – Available in 8 shades + 2 limited edition shades

     

     

    Photo Shoot

     

    「Visée AVANT」Limited Edition Seasonal Visual with MAYUKA&NINA

     

    The theme for this year’s campaign was ‘Find the Color Just for You.’ By trying all possible shades, even those which seem out of the consumers comfort zone, they will absolutely find the perfect color. For this photo shoot, NiziU applied makeup inspired by their respective member colors, showing off their individuality.

     

    A special web movie and visual for Glossy Eyes Rich N featuring the NiziU girls is available on the special product website and through the official social media channels. The eyeshadows will be available at drugstores and other retailers, as well as online, beginning September 16. Members Mayuka and Nina will also appear in limited season ads for Visée AVANT.

     

    An original movie featuring all members is also available to view on the official TikTok brand account and the Glossy Rich Eyes N special product website.

     

    Interview with NiziU

     

    Q1. Visée has partnered with a number of women before, each symbolizing the current era. What are your thoughts on being chosen as brand ambassadors for Visée now?

    Mako: I’m turning 20 this year, and I’ve really wanted to show a different side of myself now that I won’t be a teenager anymore. I was so happy when I was chosen for this project, since it gave me the perfect chance to do just that!

    Maya: We’re so incredibly honored to be chosen as ambassadors for Visée! I use their products regularly, but there are so many different colors of product available. I think this will inspire people to make use of colors they may not use often, and to try new things!

     

    Q2. How did you feel after shooting wrapped?

     

    Ayaka: It felt like something totally different than what NiziU has tackled in the past. I typically wear more cutesy makeup, but this time I tried to show something more mature. It was refreshing. It was a blast getting close-up shots taken of my eye makeup!



    Q3. The theme for this year’s campaign is ‘Find the Color Just for You.’ It calls on people to find a color that best matches their personality. After the first ad shoot, what were your impressions of your fellow members’ new makeup looks?


    Riku: Maya was the one getting her pictures taken first, and she looked so gorgeous that Ayaka and I couldn’t stop staring at her! Honestly, we were staring at her so much that when she finally looked over at us, she did that typical Maya smile, and it was like we fell in love with her. (laugh)



    Q4. This year’s visuals are impressive, with the NiziU members showing off very different expressions than usual. Is there anything you refer to or try to do personally, to find new facial expressions?


    Mayuka: It can be really difficult, but I find it useful to look at photos of some of the more senior members and practice copying their expressions.

     


    Q5. Again, this year’s theme is ‘Find the Color Just for You.’ Each of the nine members of NiziU have their own distinct personalities, so with that in mind, what do you think makes you stand out as an individual?

     

    Rima: For me, it’s my different worldview. It allows me to converse in a very unique way, and to really adjust how I carry myself depending on the location. My member color is red, which also has many meanings: it can be powerful, or mature, or energetic, or mischievous. I’m like a chameleon. I hold many different personalities that I can switch to at the drop of a hat.

     


    Q6. As a member of NiziU, you’ve had many different and unique experiences. Have you found any unexpected sides of yourself during your time as a member?

     

    Rio: I used to think I was one of the cool girls, but during this photo shoot, I was given a makeup look and outfit that was more cutesy. That’s a side of myself I haven’t explored, and this is something that happens frequently during the many events and challenges we take on as a unit.



    Q7. During the makeup shooting sessions, we were able to see very different sides of the NiziU members. Is there anything new you’ve learned about the other members recently?

     

    Miihi: Compared to how we all were when we all joined, everyone is really starting to show their true selves! We’ve so close, there’s nothing that we don’t know about each other at this point!



    Q8. The Glossy Rich Eyes N products that you used this time come in a wide variety of colors, making it possible for anyone to meet their perfect shade. Speaking of ‘meetings,’ what do the members of NiziU want to meet more than anything right now?

     

    Nina: I want to meet with WithU (the name for NiziU fans). We haven’t been able to meet them face to face yet, and I hope we’re able to soon.

    Perfume comments about appearing on the show

     

    a-chan
    “As a fan of the show, I’m happy The Masked Singer is being made in Japan! The show is making it possible for a lot of amazing people to come together too, so please look forward to it.”

     

    KASHIYUKA
    “I never thought they’d make a Japan-original version, so I was shocked when we received the offer. It’s a chance to discover new sides and charms of the performers.”

     

    NOCCHi
    “I was happy when we got the call. All of the performers ooze talent, even with the masks on, so it got me excited without even thinking. I think this is gonna be a show unlike we’ve ever seen before, so please look forward to it.”

     

    About the theme song Polygon Wave


    a-chan

    KASHIYUKA
    “I am so honoured that we were picked to do the theme song for The Masked Singer! The song has an infectious and nostalgic melody that makes you relax your shoulders. It really pulls you in. That tantalising aspect of hearing the voice of someone whose face you can’t see for the mask links well with the feeling of this song. I want people to listen to it on the go while they’re gazing out of a window.”


    NOCCHi
    “I feel like the song captures that image of the ‘near future’ you hear when people say the phrase, or perhaps even beyond that. [Yasutaka] Nakata never fails to create an interesting world. Look forward to seeing where Perfume goes from here.”

    The collection encompasses clothing items, bags, and accessories, all primarily in black and white. Sacai’s signature hybrid spirit is woven throughout the collection, and each item fuses Dior’s tailoring prowess with Sacai’s sportswear taste. It also combines floral Dior designs on Sacai’s modern fabrics. From the photoshoot, you can feel the creative collaboration between Paris and Tokyo reflected in the designs, which use denim to recreate Japanese workwear silhouettes while weaving in practical details reminiscent of Paris couture.

     

    The collection also includes Saddle bags which incorporate Sacai touches like pockets and drawstrings. Other Saddle bags mix leather with nylon in an olive and orange colour combination reminiscent of Sacai’s classic bomber jackets. Another inclusion in the collection is footwear, specifically the Dior Snow and Dior Explorer boots, with the CD logo in a gold and silver finish together with Sacai’s signature pearls.

  • NiziU Feature in Commercial for KOSÉ’s Makeup Fix Product Make Keep Mist EX

    17.April.2021 | FASHION / MUSIC

    KOSÉ rolled out their new commercial in Japan on April 15 for their makeup fix mist product Make Keep Mist EX. The commercial features Japanese music group NiziU along with their new song I AM.

    I AM was written specifically for this commercial, which has the NiziU members performing the “mist dance” showing how to use the product. The commercial emphasises how well the Make Keep Mist EX keeps makeup applied to one’s face without worrying about it coming off.

     

    The NiziU members released this comment with regards to the product and commercial: “Applying makeup can be a real pain when wearing a face mask, so we use this all [product]! We’d love for you to do this dance while you apply your Make Keep Mist!”

     

    If you’re wondering how the shoot went for this commercial, check out the official story released below. 

     

    The Commercial Shoot

    The NiziU members entered the studio dressed in full-pink spring suits. They rolled up to the studio’s blue set where they looked super cute and readied themselves for the shoot.

     

    The take-away from this commercial is the new Mist Dance which has the nine members lined up beautifully together as they spray the mist on their face simultaneously to the tune of the music. It’s reported that it took them a while to get it down perfect at first, but after some practice and looking at the monitor, they were able to create something iconic.

    “Do it like RIO!” instructed the shoot’s director, which prompted RIO to show the other members how it’s done.

     

    During their break, the other members complimented MAKO’s blonde hair and MAKO’s blue tips, and MIIHI stroked RIKU’s dango hair while saying “Looky here, ice cream! Looks delicious.”

    In one part of the dance, the members have to go all out and use their whole bodies. They switch up their formations several times and not once did they bump into each other. The members gave tips to each other too, like MAYUKA suggesting a better position during one formation, and RIMA asking which angle looks more beautiful for a certain move in relation to the camera. The result was an incredible display that was shot in one take, resulting in a round of applause from the studio staff.

     

    Check out the commercial below.

     

    Make Keep Mist EX

    The new EX version of Make Keep Mist has stronger holding power to keep makeup smudge-free and looking fresh and beautiful all day. The product is available in a normal size and smaller ‘trial’ size. A new cool type, Make Keep Mist EX Cool, was released on April 16.

     

    Make Keep Mist EX ¥1,320 / Make Keep Mist EX Trial Size ¥880 / Make Keep Mist EX Cool ¥1,320 (Tax Included)
