Hacci Fall Winter 2014 1

(images from hacci1912.com)

.

According to this Facebook post, Japanese beauty brand Hacci will be launched in Taiwan on October 1st. I have noticed that Hacci has been receiving more and more media coverage in Japan in the last couple of years due to its continuous releases of new products and its increasing availability in upmarket department stores. I thought I’d talk about this brand before its international debut.

Biteki.com has posted information on Ayura‘s holiday 2014 makeup collection. The limited-edition Dress Aura Up Coffret (¥6300) will be released in Japan on November 23rd.

The set includes a face powder, a lip gloss, a mini mascara, a lip serum, a hand cream and a makeup pouch. It is nice to see some new makeup items from Ayura as there haven’t been many new makeup releases from the brand since early last year.

Paul and Joe Hair and Body Mist Holiday 2013 Bodycare Haircare Fragrance 1

.

I do love my fragrances, but, when the weather is warmer, I sometimes reach for lighter options such as body mists. (I hope my readers in the UK are enjoying the nice weather (despite the occasional rain).) One body mist that I recently purchased is Paul & Joe‘s Hair & Body Mist, which was released as part of Paul & Joe’s holiday 2013 bodycare collection. (It is not a seasonal limited-edition item.)

Vecua Honey Wonder Honey Honey Dew Hand Creams 1

.

Today, my Stash Debut series, which highlights my first purchases from various brands/lines, focuses on Vecua Honey.

Launched in April 2011, Vecua Honey is a sister brand of the Japanese beauty brand Vecua. While Vecua (debuted in 2003) is a high-end brand sold in department stores and has a clean and sophisticated look (see my brand profile on Vecua), Vecua Honey’s image is more youthful, fun and whimsical. Vecua Honey’s products feature honey as well as other natural ingredients.
