Eyeko FAT BALM - Minty Review




Quick review because of procrastination hehe. I am not 100% sure but I think this is a discontinued product .__. if you're lucky, you can still find them online for around £5-£10~ ^^

The packaging is cute! I use my fingers to apply the balm onto my lips - so the size is an attraction factor, not really practical. The balm has a subtle smell of mint, which is really nice. It contains Jojoba oil, so it hydrates the lips very well. It also contains SPF 15 to protect your lips. 

The colour is light pearl pink, great for  everyday. However, it is very sheer! In all honesty, I think this shade a waste of money. You could purchase Nivea's Kiss of Shimmer, which offers very similar results and is a lower price. I can't say for the other shades, since they're darker so it may be more pigmented. I like the 2-1 concept, you can apply it onto your lips and cheeks. Great for traveling. If you apply this balm on your cheeks, it has a subtle colour with a dewy finish.

Rating: 5/10

Pros:
  • Mineral oil and lanolin free
  • Hydrating
  • Has SPF 15
  • Versatile

Cons:
  • Not pigmented

Would I repurchase? Nope - you can purchase other lip balms that offer the same result for a lower price. If i were to repurchase it, I would get a darker colour so that more colour shows up ^^

Would I recommend?: For this shade - No. People are likely to purchase the FAT BALMs for it's colour (or for the cute packaging xD), but since it doesn't have much pigment, you're better off purchasing a regular lip balm or look into a different product with more pigment. 

Have you tried any new lip balms recently? ^^
