Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well? I had such a great response to my previous brand overview post featuring MeMeMe that I decided to do another one for you all. A little while ago I was contacted to see if I would be interested in giving some Cheeky products a try. I literally jumped at the chance as I always love trying out and discovering new makeup brands. This brand was completely new to me but I have seen it prop up a few times on Instagram and from what I saw I thought they looked like a lovely brand. I was in Superdrug last week and I saw the Cheeky products next to the new Zoella Beauty line and thought it was about time I brought you this brand overview post! If you like these types of posts I will try and post a few more for you guys featuring some other new and well loved brands of mine!
Firstly, a little overview about the brand themselves. Cheeky are in fact Cowshed's naughty little sister. Cowshed are an award-winning bath, body and skincare products which were born from a Cowshed. Since they opened their first spa in the old cow shed at Babington House in Summerset in 1998, they have expanded to locations all over the world but their products have always stayed true to their British Heritage. You can enter the world of Cheeky to find a colourful collection of nail paints that add extra spark to any look; a range of freshly scented products across body care, hair care and cosmetics to primp and preen form head to tow, and a brand new Cheeky parlour situated in Shoreditch to make you look a knockout in an instant.
Want your makeup to last as long as you do? This setting spray does just that, so you can look dazzling for longer. When I saw that Cheeky produced their own makeup setting spray I was so intrigued to give it a try, I mean who doesn't want their makeup to stay in place all day long?! This product is designed to set your makeup and make it last longer, but also a little spritz of this bad boy or any face mist will also make your foundation look more natural and seamless. This little gem is simply fabulous and for £10.00 I feel you are getting a great deal, especially for a generous 100ml bottle! If you are on the hunt for a dupe for the Urban Decay setting sprays or MAC Fix+ I would definitely give this one a try.
I think it is no secret how much I love pastels and glitter when it comes to my nails. When I saw that Candy Shop pink and Minted Mint shade I knew they would be colours that would be well loved in my beauty collection. I first applied one coat to my nails which gave a very sheer cover, I decided to add another coat which helped give the polishes a more true shade and deeper opacity. Candy Shop is a gorgeous bubble gum pastel pink which I absolutely love...I feel this would make a great dupe for OPI Pink Friday or Essie Ballerina Pink. True to its name Minted is a pretty mint shade, however, in some lights it can come across slightly more blue toned but still gorgeous! It would make a great dupe for Essie Mint Candy Apple for those of you wanting to give a different mint shade a try. At £7.00 I feel they are a few pound more than what I would want to spend for a high-street nail polish but they do come in slightly cheaper than an Essie polish so that is always a plus.
If you are looking for a flush of colour on your cheeks or lips, this clever little compact is your perfect partner. Lip and cheek tints are not something I would initially reach for if I was doing my makeup, however, some days you might be in a rush and this little guy will be your best buddy...plus this would make the perfect handbag accessory and would be ideal for touch ups on the go. An added bonus is that the gel texture contains hydrating beeswax to care and moisturise your lips and skin. My only quarrel is after a few uses it might become a tad messy but I am quite good with keeping my makeup tidy and clean so we shall see. Also, It could get a little messy if applied with your fingers but I mean that is what hand sanitiser is for on the go right?! haha
I hope you all enjoyed this post! I really loved trying out and discovering a new brand, I honestly believe I have found some new treasures. Everything is great quality, affordable and would make a great gift or addition to any makeup collection. I would love to know what you think about Cheeky and the products featured in this post.
