I was approached by CVS to host a Girl’s Night In Party but when I explained to them that I work for a non-profit with a group of wonderful (but overworked!) women who would love to get pampered during their lunch breaks they were on board! I hosted 14 women for a fabulous Girl’s Lunch In party on Friday, May 17, 2013 where I work! Many of you know I work for a non-profit and we represent indigent clients in our local area in their civil cases. We all love what we do but we won’t get rich doing it that’s for sure! I knew my co-workers would love some pampering!
Co-developed by actress Salma Hayek and CVS/pharmacy, Nuance Salma Hayek is a full beauty line offering high-quality products designed to enhance every woman’s individual beauty, at a price that she can afford. The comprehensive collection of more than 100 products within four categories – skincare, cosmetics, haircare and body – is available only at CVS/pharmacy locations nationwide and on cvs.com/nuancesalmahayek.
The first complete beauty line developed by an actress in partnership with a national retailer, Nuance Salma Hayek was inspired by Hayek’s grandmother, a cosmetologist who developed her own homemade beauty remedies. An embodiment of her rich family heritage, the products in the Nuance Salma Hayek line represent the fusion of advanced, proprietary formulations and personal beauty rituals passed down from generations. Each product in the line was inspired by Hayek’s own beauty rituals as well as her extensive global travels. Many ingredients, such as tepezcohuite, blue agave, prickly pear and lime enzyme, are being used in exclusive beauty formulas available to the mass market for the first time. Hayek rigorously tested every product in the line, partnering with formulators to ensure the highest standards and results.
None of them were familiar with the Nuance Salma Hayek line prior to the party. The awesome folks at CVS sent each one of them a goodie bag stuffed with full-sized products for them to try! They also sent 2 $50 CS giftcards for me to raffle off! The winners were Pam and Amy and boy were they excited! I set the table in pink and green (Nicole’s Nickels colors!) and set the goodie bags on the chairs. They also sent me a ton of the products for us to try at the party along with supplies like cotton balls and nail polish remover.
I set up several products in front of each chair and we went around the table opening them, testing them and I had more information such as price and ingredients that I added in as well. The women had a great time trying out the products and the face serums and creams seemed to be the most popular along with the lip trio! The lip trio is such a fun product! It’s a shimmery lip gloss on one end, a coordinating lipstick in the middle and a lip liner on the other end.
I had ordered Italian for everyone and we had a great lunch of salad, garlic knots, chicken parmesan, penne with meatballs and stuffed shells! For dessert we had mini cupcakes and cake pops – adorable! The food was delicious but people couldn’t wait to get into their bags and into the items on the table! I heard a lot of positive comments and everyone was happy to hear the products are available exclusively at CVS. Everyone there shops at CVS but most hadn’t seen the products or realized what the line was all about and all thanked me for letting them know more about it!
Favorites among the ladies were the already mentioned lip trio, the eye quad and the nail polish! Everyone loved the shape of the lip and eye quad and loved the combination of colors! We lingered over lunch and everyone left full and very happy to try out all of the great Nuance Salma Hayek products in their goodie bags!
