The Mascara Diaries: Nuance by Salma Hayek Full Effect Ultra-Volumizing Mascara Review

Nuance by Salma Hayek Mascara Review
Hi Kind Friends! I needed a new mascara so I stopped my local CVS drugstore to see what was new. I love my Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara, it is my favorite mascara in the entire world but it is pretty expensive so I went to try a drugstore mascara before getting another tube. I originally intended to try something from Milani but there were no mascaras in that store. Isn’t that weird? I looked online and they have mascara but it wasn’t in the display.

So, I decided to try the newer brand Nuance by Salma Hayek. It was really cool to see a makeup line from Salma Hayek, I knew immediately I had to give the mascara a try.

To see how the mascara applied, my initial thoughts, and what the wand looked like watch the video demo below:


The verdict: It looks pretty but the formula doesn’t feel good on the lashes. It feels very tacky and smells like plastic. This is why I’m leaning more towards only using high end mascaras because I’ve noticed that the ingredients just feel better. You can get similar looks from drugstore mascaras but the mascaras that feel the healthiest on my lashes have all been high end.

The Nuance by Salma Hayek mascara did come off easily with my Burt’s Bees Sensitive Makeup Wipes, which is a big plus for me. But regardless I’m strongly considering returning this mascara, for $15 it doesn’t measure up.

Have you tried anything else from the Nuance brand? How did you feel about it?

    I use the makeup remover from Salma Hayek and I LOOOOVE it!!! I’m on my 3rd bottle of it, and it’s definitely a must have in my opinion :)
