I've had this for about 3 years now and when i brought it in Superdrug i think i paid around £3.50 for it. I have never really used it until recently i keep it in my car and mostly used it as a quick blush on my cheeks and then one day i tried it on my lips and loved it! It gives me a "My lips but much better" look and i find it last longer then any other lipstick or balm!
I cant believe they have discontinued them! :(
Hopefully they will bring them back, but apprently they are going for all eyes right now seeing as the company is called "EYEko"
Going to see if i can stock up!

This is pretty great. The strawberry shade has a bit of shimmer, but its not too noticeable once you apply it. The colour is sheer so don't expect too much colour from this balm. Has a soft moisturizing formula, pleasant smell and they glide on easily. I'm not too fond of the packaging because the balm is much bigger than the size of my lips so makes it harder to apply. Gives lips a nice tint that enhances their natural colour. Perfect for those who don't like "obvious colour" on their lips.

I bought three Fat Balms yesterday in Cherry, Frosting and Strawberry. I found them for £5 for all three and was very proud of my bargain! They are a neat size, look fab and smell lovely. The colours look gorgeous on my lips and last far longer then any other balms I've had in a long while. I would definately buy this product again as I cannot fault it!

Smells really good, moisturizing, gives a sheer red tint to your lips. Would I buy it again? Probably not. It's pricey for a lip balm and you don't get much product. The packaging is cute though, and it goes on very smoothly. Even has slight shimmer.

This is one of my staples.
Not amazing as a balm, and feels a little grainy but gives a nice subtle red colour.
I tend to use it as blush - blends well and a little powder takes out the greasyness.
Smells nice and looks cute. Super cheap too!

This colored lip balm is probably the only lip product I will ever need for the rest of my life. Obviously I will buy more, but if I had only this, I'd still be happy. Definite HG status

Iíve used lots of other lipbalms before (body shop, Burts bees etc) but this is one of the best at moisturising. It lasts a lot longer than a lot of other lipbalms iíve used and it smells lovely too. I really like the packaging (all Eyeko packaging is cute!) although if you have tiny lips it could be difficult to apply. You can also use it as a blush but I havenít tried it like this yet.
Itís a really deep matt red and has a hint of sparkle in it which is pretty but I don't think it suits me too well. The website says it enhances your natural lip colour which is true. Im not a big fan of bright reds but this is a nice alternative to a red lipstick if you want something that doesn't last long.

Well, the color is beautiful. It's a reddish plum on me. I like that you can use it for cheeks and lips. I'm going to try to find a lipstick that matches this color, because I just can't stand having this stuff on my lips. First, it's crazy hard to apply because of how huge the tube is. Also, it looks kind of...I dunno, grainy...on my lips. It just looks clumpy and dry. Which is too bad because it's relatively cheap and such a freakin' pretty color. Oh, and I forgot how awful the smell is!!! It reminds me of hookah, kind of that sickeningly sweet fruity smell. I wish I could get over those downsides, but I just can't. Boo

This is the first Eyeko product I've tried and I'm pretty pleased with the Strawberry Fat Balm as far as the color and packaging goes. The packaging is too cute in it's chubby pastel pink tube. The balm isn't the best as a moisturizer but it's great to add a little sheer of red to my lips. I use a bit on my cheeks too to give it a bit of a flushed/just pinched look. It is sticky at first application so I don't use too much. A little goes a long way anyway. I love strawberry scented lip stuff but this balm smelled too synthetic for me. I probably wouldn't buy this again since there are so many drug store products that can do the job that would cost less.

Am on my second one of these... The first one was a bit darker and looked scary on me being quite pale. The second one I bought this spring and it's a gorgeous cherry red, red(-pink) and smells lovely of strawberry! It also conditions your lips so it's pretty great!

I just received this in the mail today and I really am liking the fat balm. I don't have thin lips so the size of the balm is no problem for me and doesn't leave color outside of my lips. I used this as a blush as well and it worked fine. I will probably just use this as a lip balm however because I have so many blushes. I like using lip gloss on top of the balm as it isn't too moisturizing. I also got a free rose salve with my purchase and top the fat balm off with that. The color is quite nice although I don't really know how to describe it. My lips are fairly pigmented already so it just adds the right amount of color. Woud repurchase and recommend.

I have a BIG crush on Eyeko at the moment. their products are just perfect for people like me who don't want to use too much *real* make up, but still want to look good.
This fat balm makes a great job with my lips. it's smooth and keeps my dry lips really soft and mosturized. I love the color of it: it's really natural and sexy, a sort of just-bitten shade. It's actually something more than a lipbalm, but non properly a lipstick, something in the middle of the two and this is why I like it so much.
Plus, I really love the taste! It's like a lipbalm I had when I was a child. :)
and the packaging is so incredibly cute. I got it for free in my last order, and in my new order I bought the raspberry one. I think I will soon get also the mint. They are great and I would definetly recommend this product!
Haven't tried it on cheeks but I saw a tutorial and it really gives a pinky sweet look. I will try it soon.

I love the colour, hate the fragrance, doesn't smell like strawberries the smell is too chemical.
I find the tube too FAT to use as a lip balm and have to apply with a brush to get even coverage on my lips.
I use it as a lip stain and then apply my favourite gloss over the top.
Applied as a cheek blush is just lovely, it give a very natural pinky glow.
I don't find it very moisturising and the colour doesn't last long on the lips.
I love the packaging its one thing Eyeko do really well and I think thats what makes their products so appealing to customers.
I probably wouldn't repurchase as I have other products that do the job better.

This is a wonderful product. I really love it with any look. I was a little afraid that it would turn out to be RED on me idk but it was really natural looking. I am african american with brown skin and i didnt want anything that would make my lips look bigger...since it was called "fat balm" i didnt understand at first and was kinda iffy about this. However it works out wonderfully and smells delicious...makes me hungry everytime. I didnt give this item a 5 because it is not good for moisturizing your lips. I get dry lips because i have a slight dermatitis issue so i just put some lipsmackers lips balm on first then the fat balm!!

A lovely pink red colour, that applies like a gloss but settles to a stain - lasts for a good many hours. Can be layered for extra effect and really perks up the face when teamed up with the neutral look.
The main problem I experienced is the bleeding - this stuff is hard to control when smudging on lips with a finger, and it migrates and clings to the outside of the lips very easily. Applying straight from the stick is a no-no - it's way too chunky and hard to control. Other than that its a great buy because it's so affordable and its a very wearable shade. Easily portable too. It would be amazing if it came in a slim-line lipstick applicator, but hey-ho.
Note - I wouldn't use this on the cheeks - too glossy and would probably cause clogged pores.

I LOVE this products! No lipbalm has made my lips softer or prettier. This fatbalm moisturizes and adds a lovely colour to my lips plus, it smells delicious. I used it once as a blush but it was far too sticky for my cheecks.
The product itself is wonderful, but the package it comes in could be improved. The stick is rather big (big diameter) which makes it difficult to put on without smearing over your face/teeth. I also dislike the childish pink packaging with silver manga head on it, it looks a lot like children's make-up, although it is cute.
-too big stick

Yes, this is indeed a fat little balm. It looks and smells very cute, if not a little kitsch. A synthetic strawberry, reminiscent of The Body Shopís one.
The colour goes on a pinky-red with gold shimmer. Itís not a glossy/shiny finish - a slightly matte one but the glitter compensates. Lasting power is ok.
I got this as a GWP but I would have bought it anyway. I would not repurchase though, it should last me a good while and there are other better balms out there. The Nivea Starfruits in Grapefruit, for instance, provides a similar pink (but a little more pinky) with a lovely sheen.
Being a fatbalm, it is a bit unwieldy to use and you can end up with red outside the lips.
For 5 pounds approx $10 US or AUD with post you canít really go wrong (I bought two products and got this as a gift, as buying just the one 5 pound item alone would have taken up almost all the cost to post it and the GWP), and this is the current GWP offer with any purchase. You need the code though (I have the one for this one which should be around May 2009. Not sure if I can write it here but you can PM me)

This gives your lips a naturally red hint of colour. When you want some colour on your lips but dont want to use lipstick, this is great for that purpose, It also moisturises my lips really well so i don't look like i have flaky lips. On closer inspection of the lip blam, there are tiny silver shimmer particles through it, i never like silver shimmer in my products, but this surprisingly did not bother me at all. The width of the lip balm did not appeal to me at first but i found that because of the wideness, it gives a more natural finish after application, and i dont have the problem with it getting onto the skin around my lips. Will buy it again!

I just got this today and have worn it twice thus far. The color does show up on the lips once it is applied. It made my lips darker but it doesn't moisturize too well. It could be due to the weather where I live also. The only bad thing about it is the "fat" part of it. It's awkward putting it on as you may end up smudging around your lips. Other than that, it smells really nice and gives the subtle hint of color. The color lasts for a while too and it does make your lips look fuller. If only this lip balm would come in a normal size, I'd for sure definitely purchase a new one.

Firstly, the packaging is so sweet and the smell is divine! This glides onto the lips really well and gives a lovely, natural colour, which is buildable if you want more reddish lips. On the cheeks it gives a natural flushed look. Overall it's lovely product, I'd use again as a lipbalm. The website also does free P&P which is a bonus, also if you enter the code E241 at checkout, you get a free gift!
