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 LatonyaMUA This product is Great
I received a sample of this mascara with my last order. I decided to try it out and I am so glad I did! It does what it says its suppose to. It gave me Gorgeous thick lashes that looked like I was wearing false lashes. It does clump a little but I just comb thru my lashes after.
I do have the same issues as others with getting it off at night. It takes a bit. What I now do is get off what I can with eye makeup remover and apply vaseline or grapeseed oil to my lids to help ease it off so in the morning when I wake its all gone.
I have been a Makeup Artist for 14 years and will add this to my kit for sure.
This product is a Must TRY

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.

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 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.

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 5 out of 5 by Vallin82 It Works!
This is probably by far my favorite mascara that I have ever used across all brands that I have ever used. My lashes naturally curl up, but they are not naturally voluminous. That is what this mascara helps with. It gives them volume, curl, while at the same time, not clumping on my lashes. I love, love love this formula. I used to have the former formula before the revamp. But if I had a chance, I'd definitely be getting this newer one. The only thing I would say is that I liked the bottle design of the last one better. But the one here is beautiful too. It is just that the last bottle design was more colorful. All in all, I LOVE this product and I would purchase it again!

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.
