Review: Eyeko Fat Balm

In my recent Eyeko order I got Strawberry Fat Balm. I had a Fat Balm years ago, I don't recall who gave it to me. But I do remember not really being very impressed by it at the time. But the new Fat Balms look so cute... I couldn't resist.

The Strawberry Fat Balm might look a little scary in the tube if you are not a fan of bright colors, but rest assured it doesn't apply as brightly as you may think at first. It applies a pretty sheer wash of color. On the lips it's a nice hydrating balm that is lightweight. Or apply it to your cheeks as blush for a soft, dewy glow. 

I actually prefer this as blush simply because the balm is rather wide. (Hence the name "Fat Balm".) and I find it a bit too bulky to apply it to my lips directly from the tube. Just dab a little on your cheeks and blend it out with your fingers and voila! I use a lip brush to apply it to my lips since, as I said, it's a little bulky to apply directly from the tube. 

Overall I like it a lot. I like multi-purpose products. They save time and space and just make life easier those times you're in a rush to get out the door, or for when you're traveling and want to take the bare minimum of cosmetics products with you.
