A Doe-Eyed Beauty, VECUA's Wonder Honey Bambi Eyeshadow in Natural Brown


Today's post features VECUA's Wonder Honey Bambi Eyeshadow in Natural Brown. VECUA is a high-end Japanese beauty brand that specializes in skincare, spa &body, and cosmetics. As I researched the brand, I found it's history to be quite unique, with the most unusual parent company. In 1979, Sony Creative Co. (a subsidiary company of  Sony Music Entertainment Co. Ltd) partnered with Stendhal and established BCL, a cosmetic division in France. BCL moved its offices to Shirokanedai Minato-ku, Tokyo in 2001, and in 2003, released ‘VECUA’ exclusively to department stores.


From what I've gathered (and this is pure speculation), the wonder honey line is VECUA's mid-end cosmetic line. In all honesty, I'm not a fan of clear packaging as I find it to look rather cheap and unrefined...sorry shu that means you, but I love your products anyway :)  So, back to VECUA :) As you can see, in the photo above, this product does not come with a mirror...which I'm personally okay with since I carry a compact mirror with me.


Here's some more information behind the brands name. In French, Vecu stands for experience, and the "A" represents the grade quality of the ingredients found in the products.


Although not stated on the packaging, VECUA's Wonder Honey Bambi Eyeshadow is a cream formula. The Bambi Eyeshadows come in four colors, but I only picked up natural brown. Natural Brown is a warm sandy fawn. I tried natural brown on its own as a wash of color on the lid, as well as setting it with an eyeshadow; keep in mind, I don't have oily eyelid, so I did not experience any creasing. Overall, I'm very pleased with the simple, yet lovely sandy neutral shimmer that Natural Brown gives my lids. A happy random purchase indeed :)

VECUA's Wonder Honey Bambi Eyeshadow retails for 1,050 yen ($13.22) and, although there are a few VECUA spas in the states, the skincare and cosmetics lines are currently exclusive to Japan.

Have you ever tried any products from VECUA?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.
