Cheeky Monkey Social Climber

This is another user requested swatch - Cheeky Monkey Social Climber.  It's listed on their website as a dark brown but it does have quite a bit of red in it as well - almost more of a plum creme.

I used a base coat of Cheeky Monkey Get Wet, only one coat of Social Climber and a top of Seche Vite.  The application was very nice and the one coat opacity was a delight.

You can really see the plummy redness in the sun.  You can also see how well it applied.

In the shade the color appears a bit more brown but it's still with some red undertones.

Cheeky Monkey can be purchased on their website [official websitefor $15 a bottle.


  1. this is an awesome color but $15 is alot to spend!

  2. Pretty color. But I really don't see much brown. It looks burgundy /wine to me

  3. Just realized that this was the colour I requested...not at all what I expected! Thanks so much for swatching before I bought haha Great colour but I don't think it would go with my skintone at all.
