by Stacie Amazing Mascara!!
Ever since I started using this product I am constantly asked what mascara I use. My lashes have never been thicker, or longer before. It glides on easily and does not clump. The brush is large and distributes the mascara evenly even on those stubborn corner lashes. This mascara is worth every penny and more. My search for the best mascara has ended with the Urban Decay big fatty mascara! People will ask me what brand of falsies I'm wearing, and are shocked to hear I'm not wearing any. I do recommend using a make-up remover or baby oil to take it off at night becouse although they don't advertise this product as waterproof, it won't come off easily with water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hazel full and healthy looking lashes
I have been using this mascara for a couple of months now. I stocked up on it when it was on sale. I love it! I usually apply about three coats. There is very little clumping (if any) and it makes my lashes look so full, healthy and separated. I have tried many different mascaras and this is my favorite so far. I am very sensitive to chemicals and some mascaras in the past have made my eyelashes fall out and my skin itch! I haven't had that problem with this one. Another thing I like is that it stays on all day and doesn't bleed on to my skin even though I have oily skin. Thanks for this awesome mascara UD!

Rated 2 out of 5 by carmo Can't get it off
I agree with other reviews that far too much product comes out on the rush making it difficult to apply and leaving me with clumpy lashes. This can be fixed by scraping the brush off before applying and so it doesn't annoy me as much now as it did the first couple weeks I used it.
I can't get the stuff off at night though! I use eye makeup remover at night and after my shower in the morning I look like Alice Cooper. I find myself trying to scrubs it off and there just always seems to be some left over and crusted on. I was a huge fan of the vintage version but I will not be buying the new formula again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yourstruly Great for thickening lashes
I really like this mascara however there are some pros and cons about this product. It does thicken and somewhat lengthen my lashes and the wand allows me to coat each eyelash perfectly without it having to look clumpy. However, this mascara does not hold the curl on my lashes if I don't use a different waterproof mascara as a base. Mind you I have the typical stick straight Asian lashes so it's really difficult for me to find good mascaras that can actually hold my curl. Also, there's a lot of product that comes out on the wand so I always need to scrape the excess off on the tube. Other than those two cons, I like the mascara all in all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tanj Big Fatty can sometimes be a little TOO chunky
I don't love Big Fatty as much as I do most of Urban Decay's other products. Not that this isn't a great mascara, it just doesn't do what I personally need a mascara to do. I find it to be a little dry, which makes my eyelashes clump together and look chunky rather than full. This is not a mascara that I can layer easily--it took a lot of trial and error for me to figure out the best way to use Big Fatty (personally, I usually do a coat of Supercurl, a coat of big Fatty, then another coat of Supercurl to define and separate). So, I don't hate it, but I guess my real lashes aren't full enough to get the full effect of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CommanderPetra Thickening and slick!
I have been using this for about two weeks and I wanted to wait before I wrote a review. There has been no difference in this formula since the first time I opened it. It still works as well as the first time. It thickens beautifully, and doesn't clump even on the second coat. It doesn't lengthen as well as Skyscraper, or curl as well as Supercurl, but the overall benefits of this mascara far outweigh the difference. This almost acts as a waterproof formula, even though it isn't advertised as such. My tears don't make it run, and it will only come off with eye make up remover or a little olive oil. No smudging, slick and sleek looking lashes, absolutely the thickest my lashes have been with a mascara.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rachie96 The Best
I don't know why color selection was one of the criteria offered because I've never purchased any mascara in any color other than black, but I guess if you're looking for a Big Fatty in like electric blue or flamingo pink you're out of luck.
I got this after having used the same brand of mascara for like two years because it was 75% off or something irresistible like that.
I will never go back.
This mascara makes my lashes plump and long and gorgeous. It doesn't flake like a lot of other mascara brands. It makes my lashes visible against my crazy eyeshadow that I always wear, and that's always something that I look for. I'm not surprised that Urban Decay would put out something so awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TechChic My new favorite mascara!!
I found this mascara by accident, but let me say after the first try I was hooked. People ask me all the time if I have on fake lashes and are shocked to find out I do not. I do not have very thick lashes either. I use 2 coats of this mascara and it goes on super easy and does not clump. I LOVE the brush!!! Let me say I am usually not a fan of the rubber bristle brushes but this gets every one of my fine eye lashes. I will say and agree with the others, it is very hard to take off. The only remover that I have found that works is Make Up For Ever's Sens'Eyes which is industrial strength stuff. However, I would rather it does not come off easy than flake so I am ok with it.
