Nuance by Salma Hayek Lights, Camera, Action Eye Trio Swatches, Photos & Review

Nuance Lights Camera Action Eye Trio

Nuance by Salma Hayek has some pretty nifty offerings, but this may be one of the coolest yet!

These are called Lights, Camera, Action Eye Trios. They come in four shades and in a very cool looking “wand”. Each wand contains a creamy eyeshadow, highlighter and eyeliner hidden away!

The colors are:

  • Champagne/Gold Shimmer
  • Bronze/Gold Shimmer
  • Sapphire/Silver Shimmer
  • Pewter/Silver Shimmer

Once you take it all apart, you have four separate components that make up the wand. The cream shadow is on one end. You open that to reveal the sponge applicator for it. In the middle of the wand is the highlighter stick, and when you pop the other end off, you get the eyeliner!

The highlighter stick is a little different than anything I have used before. It’s like a waxy stick. It wasn’t too hard or difficult to get good payoff though. Definitely a no mess solution!

The eyeliner is a nice jet black.
The highlighter stick is a shimmery pale gold color.
The cream shadow is a very pretty pale bronze color.

With this one there is also a black eyeliner (not sure if the other two colors have black as well or not)
The highlighter stick is an icy cool white silver
The cream shadow is a greyish/green/silver color.


I really like the convenience of having all three of these items in one simple to carry wand. They would be totally perfect for traveling as they feel sturdy and contain a small amount, but enough of everything you would need.

Availability: Exclusive to CVS.

Pricing: $8.49.

Do you ever purchase these types of all-in-one makeup products, or do you prefer separates?

    I really like these! Any chance you could do a look with one of them to show it off? I’ll have to keep an eye out the next time I’m at CVS!

    I like how they packaged it. I might have to try one.

  • November 8, 2011

    Wow, those look great for travel! Not like I ever go anywhere, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting them, haha.

  • November 8, 2011

    I bought two of those and need to wear them. I like seeing your swatches.

  • November 8, 2011

    I think these will be awesome stocking stuffers for my younger girl cousins. They’re just getting into makeup!

  • November 8, 2011

    Very interesting concept. And the color selection doesn’t seem off the wall either.

    I wish that the liner with the bronze combo was a dark brown, that seems like it would be less harsh. But it IS a gorgeous black, and a great product to throw in your bag for touchups.

    How did the cream eyeshadow hold up? I’ve never had a good experience with one. They alwaaays seem to crease on me.

  • November 8, 2011

    I like the efficient packaging – makes it easy to travel with and it just generally takes up less space.

    Like Isabel, I’m also curious about the cream eye shadow. Did it crease on its own? Did it not crease when used in conjunction with a primer?

      Hi Swatch & Learn and Isabel,

      I don’t ever wear anything without primer because it will crease on me within 1 hour usually. These don’t crease on me with Too Faced Shadow Insurance. In fact. NOTHING does!! :)

      • November 9, 2011

        You’re lucky to last even 1 hour without a primer. I’ve had some cream shadows crease literally 10 minutes after I put them on because my eyelids are oily, I guess.

        Great to know they last with a primer! Thanks for getting back to me, Kelly! :)

          Well yes if it’s a cream shadow it will crease on me that fast also without a primer. If it’s powder usually around an hour. Primer is THE best invention ever!

      • November 9, 2011

        Did you set it with a corresponding powder eye shadow shade? Thanks for replying!

        • November 9, 2011

          Sure! Nope I just tried it on it’s own but you certainly can use a powder with it.

  • November 8, 2011

    I saw this at CVS today. I’m going to beg my boyfriend for an early Xmas gift. :)

    love the idea of this for my travel bag!

  • November 8, 2011

    These really look like a wonderful idea. How is it using the eyeliner? It’s such a short little thing! I would also like some other colors of liner with the shadows. I also would love to see you do an eye makeup look with this. Please?

  • November 9, 2011

    I have this in champagne. I’ve used it several times now (with primer) and it doesn’t crease on me, the liner is nice and goes on nice and smoothly with no tugging and it stays put. The item I’m least crazy about is the highlighter, it’s too big for inner eye work and is a little too white for my liking. I like the look of that shimmery gold one you bought.

    I could see this being super convenient for travel or staying with friends. Plus I wouldn’t worry about losing it since it’s not overpriced. The pewter shade is lovely!

  • November 9, 2011

    I do travel a lot, so…yay, an excuse! The packaging on her stuff is pretty great. I also have had no luck with cream shadows, but based on your review & the comments, I think at least one of these is worth a shot.

  • November 22, 2011

    All of the reviews I have seen of Nuance are really positive, and the price point is fantastic-a shame we don’t get this in Canada. Avon’s Mark brand has something similar in it’s imark click packaging but I don’t think the formula is as good
