Marta Walsh In New York City May 2012

Early this week I left Scottsdale & Paradise Valley Arizona for 2 days in my original hometown New York City. The trip was related to my blog TM aka TalkingMakeup.com.  My background is quite a long story. I was born in Former Soviet Georgia then at age 4 months my parents immigrated to Israel where I grew up till I was 18 hence my Israeli accent.

It’s funny because sometimes when I tell people I was born in Georgia they say now I hear your Russian accent LOL. It’s not a Russian accent it’s Israeli. The point I’m trying to make is that since 18 I spent most of my life living and working in New York City.

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).

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair With Accelerated Retinol SA

I’m super impressed with the NEW Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair anti-aging skincare collection which was launched in March 2011. The difference is in its Accelerated Retinol SA which is formulated with Stabilized Retinol and glucose complex that help minimize the irritation often caused by other Retinol products to make it possible/comfortable to use daily. According to Neutrogena the NEW Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair skincare collection has been clinically proven to improve overall skin texture in one week and help diminish the look of deep wrinkles after four weeks. Other ingredients include Hyluronic Acid.

I’ve tried Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair (I love it & I will continue to use) and aside from its skicare benefits described above I noticed that the collection which includs: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer SPF 30, eye cream, and moisturizer NIGHT, are all very hydrating, have a clean scent, and easily absorbed.
