I remember trying the old Eyeko Fat Balms a couple of years ago and was impressed with them, so I was very excited when the brand relaunched the product a few weeks ago. Available in six shades, I was lucky enough to have the chance to try one of them, Frosting. A bright reddish coral in the tube, Frosting is a beautiful pink once applied.
Frosting has a balmy, not-sticky consistency that dries to a dewy finish. Also, the color payoff is just right: it’s not too sheer that you have to keep layering for the color to show up, but it’s not too pigmented either so you don’t have to worry about ending up with clown cheeks as it’s impossible to apply too much. This is really foolproof.
First, I decided to try it on my lips. I find its consistency fairly moisturizing but if you have dry lips, a lip balm underneath is necessary as this won’t be hydrating enough for you. Also, the size of the lip balm makes it a bit tricky to apply color on the lips so you need to be careful. Or just use a lip brush instead.
But once on the lips, the result is beautiful. It gives them a natural pop of pink color without ending up in fine lines. Plus, it contains SPF 15 to keep your pout protected from the sun rays. Sadly though, as most lip products, it doesn’t last long and needs to be reapplied several times throughout the day.
Although I like it as a lip tint, I love it a lot more as a blush. As I mentioned above, this is impossible to overdo. It is easy to apply and spread on your cheeks and it gives a nice pink tint with a dewy finish that looks very natural on. Also, on the cheeks, it lasts a great deal more. In fact, I’d put it on in the morning and won’t have to retouch it until evening. Very impressive, I think.
Instead, I’m not too fond of the packaging. The color of the tube used to be a pretty pink but it’s now a depressive great that looks a bit tacky. But at least it’s practical to carry around with you and it comes in a colorful fuchsia box, which is very pretty. Also, the Fat Balm has a sweet scent, which reminds me of biscuits, but once applied, you just can’t smell it anymore. Oh, and it’s limited edition, so if you’re interested, get it now!

Eyeko Fat Balm in Frosting is a beautiful pink tint for cheeks and lips. Not too sheer, but not too pigmented, it provides a natural pink pop of color that lasts long on the cheeks, but disappears soon from lips. The consistency is balmy and fairly moisturizing, but the big size makes it a bit hard to apply it on lips. On the cheeks, application is a breeze though.
