Just a quick note before I get into this review. My Viva Glam competition is now closed. I shall be checking all entries within the next week or two as I'm busy busy doing lots of overtime. I'll get back to with you winners and whatnot asap.

Not too long ago Eyeko held a birthday event and were giving out goody bags. Unfortunetly I couldn't make it but I unexpectedly received a few bits in the post a week or so later, and this was my favourite thing that I got.

Eyeko Toffee Fat Balm:
Creamy caramel for a polished nude lip look and incr-edible toffee scent-sation!

Honestly, not something I would have picked for myself. It looks too brown for my kind of nude and I'm really not feeling the grey packaging. They could have made it really pretty but failed to do so. Anyone else think so, or is that just me?

As soon as I tried this I fell in love. It isn't super pigmented but it's definitely MLBB colour! It's a nude for me without looking like I'm wearing anything.

I did a couple of lip swatches. First ones on here, so be nice. ;) Let me know if they're alright?! They're no Temptalia but still ...

I've yet to try it on my cheeks but on the lips it glides on really smoothly and leaves them smooth and soft. It lasts for quite a while and keeps them looking slightly shiny.

As I said earlier, the only two minor things that I don't like so much is the grey packaging and the scent isn't really that toffee-y. It smells quite artificial but I can cope with it since it looks so nice on.

Other than that, LOVE! Would totally reccommend and I hopefully plan to get a few more (hello Frosting!) before they go away again.

Have you tried any of them? What did you think? Have you tried them on your cheeks? Let me know your thoughts.
