Askmewhats Reviews: Eyeko Fat Balm

I've got the chance to try on my first EYEKO product from a super nice reader Joyce.
Thank you.
I've finally had a chance to review on it after testing it for quite some time! I hope this helps out to readers who plan to purchase one.


Eyeko Fat Balm A Touch of Iridiscent Pink



Eyeko Fat Balm says ---

Berry-liscious tints with light reflecting particles and added moisture for softer, sexier lips. Smooth on to cheeks too for a fruity flush. Available in 3 sheer shades.

Strawberry Fat Balm - natural lip color
Raspberry Fat Balm - just bitten shade
A Touch of Iridiscent Pink

Askmewhats says ---

Pros
  • has a nice minty feeling
  • moisturize at the same time gives out a lovely tint on the lips
  • very affordable
  • cute packaging
  • easy to tote along
Cons
  • packaging can be a pro and con, yes it's cute but mine came off when I was twisting it :(

  • if you're into "a lot of product", this fat balm is a bit short, less than an inch, it doesn't bother me as I find it hard to finish up fat balms like this! (Take a look at photo below for full balm size)

  • if you're not into nude lips: Not for you, as this comes off a bit pale on the lips (choose Raspberry or Strawberry if you're into hint of colors)
  • if you're not careful in application, the balm sits on the lines of your lips, which ain't cool (see prevention on the tips area)

as you can see, ugly lines appear even if you top it with gloss

Overall

A cheaper way to own a lip and cheek tint! I love how cute the packaging is and how pretty the Touch of Irisdiscent Pink is. If I wanted a nude lip, I just apply this all over my lips and top it with a gloss.

I am actually using this to conceal imperfections on my lips like discoloration before I put on a lipstick color. Works really pretty!

Overall, I have a feeling that I would enjoy the other colors rather than this, as I've done research myself and read that the Touch of Iridiscent Pink creates lines on lips as compared to others, I've also read that this balm is drier too! I may need to do an order from Eyeko and see how the other colors go.

Tips
  • to prevent the balm from sitting on the lips and make you look uncool, after applying this directly on your lips, use your finger to warm the product and rub it against your lips, nicer finish (as seen on photo below)
  • if your lips are super dry, top it with a lip gloss to create a shiny nude look
Will I repurchase?

Yes, in other shade.

Pale pink sheen



Here's how it looks like on my lips

Without Gloss
(prettier if you rub it with your fingers)



And here's with gloss,
I love it with gloss as my lips are dry




Here's a photo of how I applied it on my face





Final Effect
I prefer using the Eyeko 5-in-1 Eyeshadow Cake

as it's easier to apply and the effect is almost the same




Products used on this half face shot ---

The Body Shop Mineral Foundation no. 02
Arezia Blush no. 1
Eyeko Fat Balm (on face and lips)


Do you own the other shades?
Let me know how you like it!
What would work for me...
Strawberry? Or Raspberry?
Hmmm...
Stay Happy!!!
