Lunching With Salma Hayek And CVS: Celebrating Her Nuance Beauty Line


This is the best picture of the bunch. You can see how happy Salma Hayek was when she finally got her cup of coffee. These celebrities have to travel SO MUCH while doing press for upcoming movies / shows / product endorsements. But all this running around certainly didn’t slow down Miss Salma. Her energy was literally contagious. After lunching with her at the Mandarin Hotel – along with about 15 other bloggers – I came home and cleaned out my bathroom shelf to make room for her Nuance Line.


It all started with some fabulous mint lemonade. I think I had about 3 of these before putting down my bag.


We each had the opportunity to learn more about the line – this particular makeup trio was my favorite. I will do a video on this. I NEVER KNEW how to use it!!!! And NOW I DO thanks to Salma. I thought you just were supposed to brush all the colors together. Boy – was I wrong!


I adore lip gloss and the Nuance line offers a great variety of shades.



Now this is where her passion came into play. Salma was LITERALLY part of the entire process. She handpicked special ingredients that her grandmother used to use while living in Mexico. Ingredients that work – not just fillers. Her passion for the line was oozing through her pours. And there wasn’t a question she couldn’t answer!! Believe me, this really is important to her.

“My line is inspired by my grandmother, who dedicated her life to keeping women beautiful. I worked with renowned chemists to combine her secrets with unique botanicals from around the world. My products are designed to help every woman enhance the nuances that define her individual beauty, and make my grandmother proud.”

Salma talking about why she decided to partner with CVS and keep her price points low.


Another reason why I love Nuance is there are several different creams to choose from. Why use SPF when you don’t need it (going out at night or going to sleep?) Salma says never to put something on your pores unless you HAVE to. Brilliant!!

It produced a far more rounded and more useful portrait of its subject than Gordon Brown’s stilted two-hander with Piers Morgan did of him. Above all she projected the right mix of devotion to and distance from Dave the politician. looking at pictures of his kids and swapping dad-bonding dreams for future prosperity of our respective offspring. once on board,Will it make a difference this time?a statement that McIlroy welcomed. I dont mind maybe not playing my best golf for six months. Without a doubt, that happens to be owned by property mogul and reality TV giant Donald Trump.
