buzzworthy: cheeky monkey cosmetics

Hello beauty lovers!

One of my clients recently sent me a package with a couple of products from an up and coming Canadian line called Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics. The first thing I noticed was the amazing way the company has branded itself. Created by Andrea Pahn, a non-conforming (in a good way) mother of three, the brands philosophy is to stray from the boring day-to-day product and add a splash of risque into the mix.

The company's literature that I received contained images, like the following, which was a little too bad ass to ignore. With polishes named Pop My Cherry, Nail Me and Cougar, how could they NOT have my attention?!


When playing with the polishes, I noticed that these definitely hold their own against other brands I love and use. The packaging is simple and pretty. You get a lot of product and the applicator is nice and thin for precision. The actual lacquer applies very nicely; two coats are plenty to get the true colour. All their products are "3-free", meaning they do not contain formaldehyde, toluene, or DBP. As well, they are non-toxic and rate a 1 on the skin deep cosmetics safety database. A funky brand that's safe to use - always a winner in my books.

Here are some swatches:

BOOTY CALL - A DEEP METALLIC COOL AUBERGINE


HANGOVER - A SHIMMERY MILKY TAUPE


WET DREAM - BASE COAT

Booty Call is gorgeous.

I like that the individual names are printed on the bottles, that's a really cute touch.

What a nice review! Thanks for your kind words. Booty Call is a great colour, but my new favourite is Raunchy Bitch. I can't tell if its blue or purple, and it has a subtle metallic shimmer too.

I should mention too that in the parts of Ontario east of Toronto, L'Moor is proud to be the newest distributor of Cheeky Monkey. You can reach us at 1-888-666-7683, or on our website at www.Lmoor.com.
