Eyeko Fat Balm review


Evening all!

I decided to post up a little demo of Eyeko's newly re-released Fat Balm tonight. Eyeko sent me a couple of colours in the post a while back and I've been so impressed with them, I had to share!


[Can you even believe the cuteness of Eyeko's graphics and packaging?!]


So, for those that need it, here's your Fat Balm education. A Fat Balm is basically a yummy scented stick of creamy pigment that can be used on your cheeks and lips. It costs £6 and is also SPF 15 which is good to know, even if it's not a feature any of us Brits will be needing anytime soon (I was so cold when I left Uni earlier I literally vibrated all the way home!) Maybe a special winter warming Fat Balm could be introduced to the range, with Deep Heat added? It might have lip plumping benefits! OR it might just be excruciating.



The colour me and my end of day frazzled face are modelling for you tonight is Toffee. It's a peachy-nude shade, which is slightly more subtle than the peachy-orange shade of my Topshop cream blush. I have actually relegated my Topshop blush in favour of the Fat Balm as I love the colour and it has a really natural, slightly dewy finish. It's not at all greasy, either, as you might expect from essentially putting lipstick on your cheeks. Oh, and it also lasts all day long, which is fantastic. Definitely a reason for you powder blush users to consider converting to cream blush, that bloody stuff never stays put! (I'm looking at you, Benefit!)

As a lippy, it works really well. It feels very moisturising and has a satisfyingly full coverage. I'm not sure the Toffee shade suits me very much, lip-wise, but that's not Eyeko's fault! I still wear it regularly anyway because it feels really nice and I just kinda like the idea that I'm fulfilling the double-whammy destiny of the Fat Balm!

Right, enough telling, it's time to show:

What are your thoughts on the Fat Balms then, guys? Have you tried any of them?

If you want to buy a Fat Balm or any other Eyeko goodies, use my Ambassador code E11298. You get a free gift when you spend over fifteen squid, and I'm not gonna lie, I get a little percentage of your money. Times are hard, so feel free to buy in bulk! Oh, and it's free shipping, so there's basically no excuses not to lift me out of poverty :D

And on that unashamedly guilt-trippy bombshell!

  2. Oh this looks lovely! I ordered this one, the strawberry AND the frosting tonight out of my own indecisiveness! I too use the Topshop cream blush, which I love, so we'll have to see how this fares on my cheeks! xx

  5. This is just the post I've been looking for! I've been debating wether to buy some Fat Balms for a little while now. I think I might have to (I still have to use the gift code I got from my last purchae using your ambassador number!)

    Can I be a pain and ask what other flavours you have tried? I'm having the hardest time choosing!

  6. Love the fat balms. Was gonna purchase the strawberry and frosty one but I might have to add toffee to that list now after seeling the shade on. Eyeko is the cutest brand ever, it definitely caters to the little girl in me! x

  8. Ooh I think it really suits you. The notion of putting lipstick on my cheeks does scare me though so I'm not sure it's the product for me.

  17. I think that colour really suits you. The toffee and the icing flavour look too good to pass by, so I might have to think about getting them (even if you do steal all my money, haha) x

  18. I was sent the Cherry one! They are AMAZING! I never thought about putting it on my cheeks though!

  19. A couple of weeks ago before these were released I actually lost my eyeko fat balm which I had bought about 2 years ago! & was using sparingly as they had been discontinued. Fate! I'm now able to buy them again and not worry about loss! ha I think i'm gonna buy mint and frosting :) xx

  23. I adore Eyeko products and their Fat Balms are the best! I remember almost 10 years ago spotting some in House of Fraser and being delighted at the reasonable price (back then, they only had about 6 different products and each one was a fiver.)
    I've still got my original raspberry fat balm in it's pink packaging - gross, I know, but it was my favourite! And then you couldn't get it for years.
    Needless to say, I've got nearly every one now. Cherry is my fave and I'm sporting it in my last post:

  29. Have tried these before and think they are great!

  30. What a name! Tempted to try it, though... my usual lip balm + lipstick combination isn't bearing up too well in winter.

    ReplyDelete
  31. that looks gorgeaous! I think it looks better on the lips thought as its more natural a bit too bright on the cheeks for my liking though :(
