We Tried It: NUANCE by Salma Hayek Cosmetics

We may have been a little too excited about the latest collection of NUANCE by Salma Hayek, sold exclusively at CVS. A line dominated by lightweight formulas and natural ingredients, the price point is one our wallets love and the quality is good enough to sell at Sephora.

Some of our favorites from the collection include a contour and highlighting palette, glamorous shadow palettes, a concealer and a moisture-rich lipstick with hues that work for any skin tone. Combining ancient beauty secrets, botanical ingredients and technology, Salma Hayek's latest collection is guaranteed to get you red carpet-ready without making you spend a fortune.

Before your next girl's night out, stop by CVS and pick up one (or all) of these products for a look that is sure to wow.


Flawless Finish Contour & Illuminate Duo, $13.99

What we loved: These products catch the light while also defining your best features. The formula is so lightweight that after applying the sheer, buildable formula we could hardly tell it was there. The pearl-infused cream illuminator looks amazing when dabbed on your cheekbones or the inner corners of your eyes. And the best part? This duo highlights and defines while letting your natural sheen shine through so you can really look #flawless without looking like you're wearing a face full of makeup.

Endless Eye Effects Shadow Collection, in Neutral Expressions, $14.99

What we loved: This palette is the perfect size. So many times with a palette there are so many choices that it can be hard to know where to start, but with this palette there are just enough choices (six in each variation) to make your look customizable, without the process being overwhelming. We loved the Neutral Expressions palette for an everyday look that works on all skin tones.


True Color Moisture Rich Lipstick, in Blooming Red, $10.99

What we loved: Besides the fab packaging design, the color is bold and glides on easily. This lipstick comes in nine shades and never feels sticky, which is a miracle in itself. Our only complaint? It doesn't last as long as some other formulas do, but the moisture and the pigment easily make up for it.


Flawless Finish Naturally Luminous Concealer, in Light, $11.99

What we loved: For any lady with yellow undertones, this concealer is a perfect fit. This product comes with a sponge applicator that makes it super easy to hide blemishes and dark circles. Green tea, ginger and vitamins A and E work together to create an effective, lightweight formula we were big fans of.
