Cheeky! - Mini Haul and Review

Greetings friends!

I recently discovered a new brand, "Cheeky", while perusing the Superdrug aisles. Cheeky is described as "Cowshed's naughty little sister," and is marketed towards a younger set than Cowshed's more adult line. I was immediately drawn in by the's so minimalist and quirky! The line is most notable for its 30-shade nail varnish range, but also contains 5 bath/body products, 6 haircare products, and 3 cosmetic products. Obviously I had to pick something up!

In the end I chose the "Unleash Your Locks" shampoo and the "Kiss 'n' Tell" lip and cheek tint in "Fire Starter." They retail for £7.50 and £10.00 respectively, but are currently on offer for 1/3 off at Superdrug. Both products are paraben-free, do not contain mineral oils or petroleum, and are vegetarian friendly.

I'm still working through my current shampoo, so I can't offer any opinions yet (except that it smells really fresh and clean, like green tea!), but I tried out the "Kiss 'n' Tell" cheek and lip tint this morning and I'm in love.

"Kiss 'n' Tell" cheek and lip tint in Fire Starter
The cheek/lip tint comes in two shades, "Posey," which is a rosy pink, and "Fire Starter" (which I picked up). "Fire Starter" looks intimidating in the pan: it is definitely a bright, fiery red to the eye. But on the face and lips it blends into the prettiest, most Snow White looking flush. Seriously, if you covet fairy tale rosy cheeks and lips, this is the product for you. It shows up much heavier on the face than on the lips, so apply with a light hand. As a lip product, it can be built up or sheered out for a barely there flush.

I'm so in love with this colour as a cream blush.I probably wouldn't buy it as a lip tint, but I love that it doubles as one. My only qualm is with the texture: its quite waxy, and you have to blend pretty vigorously on the cheeks. However, I do like that the main ingredients are natural waxes such as beeswax and carnauba wax instead of icky chemicals, so that's the trade off I suppose!

Cheeky has a flagship salon in East London called "Cheeky Parlour" that offers manicures, pedicures, blow outs, and makeup consultations. It looks just as adorable as its products! You can order Cheeky products online at or at Superdrug. Unfortunately, they aren't available in North America or Europe (they ship there, but the prices are exorbitant!) If you're planning a trip to London, it looks like the Cheeky Parlour would be a great place to swing by for a spa and shopping excursion.

I'm dying to get my hands on some of the nail varnish colours and the body buff, which smells divine. Have you tried any of the Cheeky products?
