Nuance Makeup Collection Salma Hayek at CVS

I haven’t stepped into CVS recently but the new Nuance Cosmetics Collection by Salma Hayek is available right now. I’ve noticed a few various folks tweeting and posting the Nuance displays at their local CVS stores.

From what I understand, so far, the collection is actually quite good but I can’t speak from experience as I haven’t actually tried any of it yet. I will say some of the packaging looks rather brilliant.

Salma went full on with this collection and it includes not only color cosmetics but skincare, haircare, and bodycare as well. Someone had mentioned in a prior comment that she’s as big a beauty junkie as we are. I didn’t know that about her so as a junkie I’m assuming her products are going to rock it hard as if anything us beauty junkies are picky about our products.

Here’s the full release info. Do take a look and let me know if you tried any of it or of any of it sounds interesting to you!

Looking forward to your thoughts!

    It seems like they managed to throw every ‘hot’ super food/miracle extract into their products. Supposedly they are good for your body ( I guess internally) but I wonder if it’s really good for your hair and skin as well?

    Still excited to try it though! Hope it’s not just hype!

  • sakex

    the line is BOGO this week at cvs. the lipsticks seem to be getting good reviews online so I might pick up a few to try.

  • Suzie

    I tried a lipstick and I actually really like it, I think I will try more of those. I also tried the Rose Petal Hydrating Balm and I’m pretty addicted to that stuff. I love the rose scent of it, and it seems to keep my lips fairly moisturized.

    • the Muse

      addie that’s what my release says….i haven’t checked out cvs though to make sure it is right…..will do later and correct if the press release was wrong!

  • Michelle

    I tried the eyeshadows that come in the pod-like packaging, and they were very underwhelming. The colors are decently pigmented and pretty smooth when applied, but the color choices were very boring… the neutral version had a set of yellow or orange based neutrals, and the smokey version had dark green, dark puple, dark grey, and… dark blue? I dunno. Plus the package was kinda flimsy.

    But I want to try out the skincare to see if all those cool ingredients are actually as great as they claim to be! 😀

  • Mariel

    Disappointed by the sodium sulfates in the hair care/bodywash. Hate it when companies use natural “superfood” ingredients and then muck it up with fillers!

  • Crissy K

    I found the tinted moisturizer to be terrible. It’s supposed to be oil free but it feels super greasy going on and it stays dewy….I mean you touch your cheek an hour later and it’s sticky….no color at all. I tried it in light and it did nothing…not even even my skin tone. And I don’t really have many skin issues. Very disappointed. The lipsticks are ok moisturizing, the colors aren’t really true to the color marker on the bottom. Decent pigmentation. But I wish they had better colors. The Eyeshadows are ok if you like a wash of color. Not too fond of the sparkles they don’t seem to blend nicely. I love the rose petal hydrating balm it smells so good and it is hydrating. I want to try their powder and eyeliners next.

    I’ve used the cooling eye gel and the anti aging wrinkle filler for eyes! Great products!! As a full time employee and graduate student, sleep is limited, therefore my eyes take a hit! These products de-puff, tighten and make me look fresh and rested!!! Love it!!!

  • Indigo S.

    I just tried the Spot Treatment with 10% Sulfur and clay, and it worked wonders! I put it on before bed, just dabbing a little on as the instructions said for the initial sensitivity test, and the next morning the spots where I had applied it were visibly less red and felt like they were beginning to heal. I would imagine that when I apply more than just some dabs the results may be even better. And maybe I’m strange, but I actually really liked the smell and the clay texture to it. It was a little pricey, but even after one day I am starting to feel that it was worth it.

  • jbrown

    recently tried a couple of skin care products 701/2 yrs. please they (cvs) must continue to sell her items… so far one and one of the only products that really seem to do something!!! wonderful….


  • Gloria S.

    I’ve tried the Nuance Blackcurrant Intense Hydration Hair Mask and I love it. I have naturally curly hair, so conditioning to keep my soft curls is a must. I leave it on for the full amount of time it recommends. Although, I don’t care for the papaya smell too much while I’m letting it set in, the smell goes away after rinsing and the end result makes it worth it.

  • Estela

    I am using the body cream Dark Cacao Coffee Firming, and at the moment what I have experienced is that my skin is now too dry, and that the cream doesn’t smeel to Cacao o Coffee, but it do to rice, one of its ingredients…I will write in the future, when I finish the product what about the firmness.Thank you.
