It’s been quite awhile since I have reviewed Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics, but they have a new fall/winter collection out and I wanted to share some of the pretties with you!
In case you don’t know anything about them, here is the scoop. This is a small Canadian company run by Andrea Pahn since 2009. The brand is 3-free, cruelty-free and vegan. Andrea has five dogs so she donates proceeds from sales to the SPCA and Humane Society. Yay!
There are currently about 120 nail shades to choose from now with various finishes. Something for everyone.
Just as a side-note, the white shade above called Granny Panties was missing the wand inside, so I wasn’t able to swatch it here for you.
Yummy Mummy is a murky medium blue with blue/purple/pink shimmer. I am loving this blue shade because of the greyish-ness to it. So pretty. The formula was excellent, creamy, smooth and just two coats covered completely.
Sweet Alimony is am emerald green. This one is a little on the brush-stroke-y side if you aren’t super careful with the application. The shade is a really nice green though. This was two coats.
With the Band is a deep blue creme. This one is very dark and very shiny. It had a really nice formula, and covered perfectly and evenly with two coats.
Overall: I think these were fun shades, but Yummy Mummy in particular stands out for me. The formula was really good with all except Sweet Alimony, which I find to be a little streaky and frosty for my taste.
