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
