Marta Walsh With Salma Hayek

In 2011 I met Salma Hayek during lunch at the Mandarin Oriental hotel New York City for the launch of her cosmetics line NUANCE for CVS Pharmacy…and I just came across this photo of me first row in the charcoal botton shirt…with Salma Hayek.

Salma Hayek Meets Marta Walsh

Last week I had an amazing opportunity to meet Salma Hayek during lunch in New York City at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and chat all about her new superstar cosmetics line for CVS Pharmacy: Nuance Salma Hayek.


Although Salma Hayek admitted to being tired & jet-lagged she looked absolutely beautiful at lunch. At age 45 Salma is truly one of the best looking natural beauties I’ve seen.

It’s not easy to come up with one good product not alone a whole cohesive cosmetics line. I’m glad to see that Hayek is using her uber celebrity power to create products that actually work and mean a lot to her as oppose to just put her name on anything like some other celebs do (and I’m not naming any names).

NUANCE by Salma Hayek for CVS Ultra Defining Mascara

I snapped this pic on my recent trip to San Diego for BlogHer 2011. At the CVS booth I got to sample the NEW NUANCE by Salma Hayek for CVS Mascara & I loved it. I’ve been a Salma Hayek fan for years now. One of the things I relate most about Salma Hayek is the accent, which I also have, and her contagious passion for everything she does.

Also when I used to have dark brown hair in my New York City years people used to say I kinda look like her. Ha! Now with the blonde hair I get Jennifer Aniston. Funny. Anyways, let’s go back to the subject in hand-this mascara adds volume, length, and the pigment is nice and bold. “Precision fibers hug lashes for extra length.”-via www.cvs.com. I can’t wait to try more from Salma Hayek’s new cosmetic line with CVS, NUANCE. I will keep you posted.

iCraig 2.1 Channel Tower Speaker

For under $100 at CVS the iCraig 2.1 Channel Tower Speaker is just amazing. I can charge my iphone with it and listen to my favorite Pandora channel at the same time. Well now you know what I do on my free time LOL. It’s small enough to fit in any room, looks sleek not clutter. I know it’s not so much fashion & makeup but I love it so much I wanted to share. I only write about products I really really love:)

Salma Hayek Debuts Nuance Cosmetics Line For CVS

This month Salma Hayek debuted her 100-piece Nuance cosmetics line for CVS, according to  Women’s Wear Daily. 100-stockkeeping-unit Nuance Salma Hayek line will bow in August 2011 exclusively in 7,000 CVS Pharmacy stores and online. I actually had the chance to visit the CVS headquarters in WOONSOCKET, Rhode Island just last week and got a sneak peek to Slama’s new makeup, skincare, and hair care collection which are priced between $7.99 and $19.99. The collection was inspired by Hayek’s grandmother, who was a Vichy Lab-trained cosmetologist and incorporated Native American and Mayan ingredients into her beauty treatments.

LUMENE Gentle Cleansing Wipes

All about face wipes. I’m call myself the Baby Pampers sensitive and perfume-free wipes (thick care) snob. I use it to remove my makeup and to freshen up when I travel. It’s works really well. So to add LUMENE Sensitive touch Gentle Cleansing Wipes takes a lot to impress me. I add this one as definitely worth trying. It’s not perfumed heavily, it’s gentle as it claims, and does remove even waterproof mascara. It’s good! Available at CVS.


LUMENE Gentle Cleansing Wipes with 100% Organic Arctic Linen Seed and alcohol-free.

Also in the LUMENE sensitive touch line I tried and good: TOUCH DAILY MOISTURE CREAM and COMFORTING NIGHT CREAM

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser

I’m a huge La Roche-Posay Rosaliac Gelee Micellar Make-up Removal Gel fan! It really revolutionized my ‘before bedtime clean your face’ routine. Never tried the La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser and I hear this cleanser is a favorite of Sorority Wars star Chelan Simmons.

When competing with 60 other girls to win a spot in the Delta house on Lifetime’s Sorority Wars, Chelan Simmons knew that clear skin was essential. Looking to keep her fair, sensitive skin glowing, she starts her beauty routine every day by washing with La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser: With a light, smooth texture and fragrance and preservative-free formula, the Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser gently removes makeup and residue without overdrying, making it perfect for dry, sensitive skin.

Best Face Cleansers and Makeup Removers

Cover Girl

Did you know that the first time I’ve ever tried any makeup from Cover Girl was during New York Fashion Week Spring 2010? I can already feel many of you are surprised. Well, growing up in Israel back in those days we didn’t have many options for makeup . It was a beauty brand I was not at all familiar with. Luckily, I can’t think of a better introduction to Cover Girl, now one of my favorite makeup lines, by Jake Bailey Cover Girl’s celebrity makeup artist. I met Jake at the CVS Reinventing Beauty Lounge back in September 2009, he did my makeup using all Cover Girl products and needless to say Marta was in love!
