I bought this mascara online for $10. It came in the black and silver tube, not the weird hippie one. I love this stuff! It's very black, goes on nice and smooth. I found it easy to get all my lashes done in 2 coats flat. My lashes look super long and thick but not spidery. I take the time to scrape the excess off the brush before I start, I think that makes a big difference in how it goes on. This stuff has major staying power once it sets! No fallout, no smudges, no streaks. I will say it takes some work to remove, I have to use a proper eye makeup remover to get it off. If I can keep getting it for $10, I'll keep buying it!

This is by far the worst mascara I have ever used. It clumped my lashes terribly, and to top it off it made a lot of my eyelashes fall out. After using this mascara for one week my eyelashes looked like a hot mess and I threw this crappy mascara in the garbage where it belongs!

I'm not a huge fan of this mascara. I have tried the sample size tube, and the full size. I wasn't impressed with either.

It wasn't too wet, the smell was just a little gross, and my lashes were a clumpy sticky mess.

I didn't get much volume, and zero lengthening.

I will not repurchase.

Cute packaging is probably the only thing this mascara has going for it. I bought it based solely on the fact that I like a lot of Urban Decay's other makeup so I assumed I would like this. It really just does not do anything. It does not provide any amount of length or thickness or even darkness to your lashes. It is almost like you are not wearing any mascara at all. Maybe I got a bad batch because other people seem to have a better experience but, I would not recommend.

Ugh. Seriously, this mascara is the worst. The formula js really thick, wet, and messy. No matter how I applied it, I kept getting huge clumps on my eyelids. I don't like the finished look at all, my lashes clumped together and looked gross. 1/5 for sure

I am stunned on the bad reviews on this product. I love this mascara! I have already bought 2 back ups since trying it. I usually use waterproof, but this is very durable and can handle a heavy cardio session. The volume and length are outstanding and holds a curl well. I am a fitness professional, so I sweat a lot; I need a mascara that holds up to multiple workouts as well as living in Texas with normal summer heat and humidity. This did not hold up for a hot yoga class, nor will it hold up for swimming or a 6 mile summer run, but for the dramatic length and volume, it's worth the sacrifice. My lashes are freakishly long and thick!

This mascara was the first Urban Decay mascara that I bought. In some ways I love is, for example
1. It is killer at staying on, being a Welsh person who sees a lot of drizzly days, this mascara didn't budge. (Also seemed to be able to handle my oily skin.)
2. My lashes did, as promised by the lady in the shop, look AMAZING. I've never actually had a mascara which has seem to give me the length I wanted and fullness all at the same time without giving me the hassle of removing the clumpy bits.
3. The brush is an incredibly nice shape, definitely a favourite of mine.

However there were some downsides to this. These are also just my personal opinions and cannot fault the mascara formula itself.
1. As a person who is relatively low maintenance in terms of makeup, I found this mascara too good at staying on, and had difficulty getting it off at the end of the day without rubbing my eyes until they burned. That, or I would wake up the next morning looking like the new member of Kiss.
2. Although the brush was a nice shape, it didn't have that glorious rim on it which helped to remove the excess from the brush and so would have to spend time to scrape the edges on the rim so that I didn't put too much on my eyes.
3. Because of me scraping the brush on the edge I often found a build up on dried up mascara, I suppose that could be considered a waste of the product itself.

Let me begin by saying, I bought this at Ulta during the week when it was on sale for $10.00 instead of $20.00, and then I received an additional discount on top of that. That is the only reason this mascara was ever brought to my attention.

When I purchased this, I wasn't really sure what to expect, as I have not had very positive experiences with Urban Decay mascara in the past. The Big Fatty mascara was something shy of amazing. It has a very weird, long, straight brush, I.E., not curved like many other mascara wands tend to be. It goes on very black and gives me a ton of volume and length. I do usually use Stila Major Lash before this through, as it doesn't do much for lash definition; I find that when used alone without a lash primer or defining mascara underneath it that it clumps lashes together. The staying power is average, it doesn't seem to bleed all over the place, but it's definitely not waterproof, and when it does get fairly wet it burns my eyes. That's no good. If I were to reprice this mascara, I'd probably price it somewhere around 12-13 dollars. 20 dollars is asking quite a bit for a mascara that requires so much work.

This is my HG mascara so I use it only on special occasions. It makes my lashes soooo long, thick and defined. All this, of course, if you put some of the mascara from the brush. What I don't like is the price so you can't repurchase it often.

I simply cannot believe all of the bad reviews for this mascara!?.... I haven't been writing reviews lately and am planning to sit down one night soon and leave my reviews for tons of products, but when I saw this product and the negative reviews it's getting I had to go ahead and leave my glowing review.

Ok, first off let me start by saying that I'm a mascara loving chic! I do not have the thick long lashes I wish for and I love false lashes but do not care for the hassle of applying them, so I only do so for special occasions. At present time in my makeup collection I have over 40 tubes of mascara, mostly high end, some mid and a few drugstore. I have Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Chantecaille, LaPrairie, Chanel, Dior, Bobbie Brown, Lancome, Clarins, Charlotte Tilbury, Benefit, Too faced, IT, Urban Decay, L'Oreal, Maybelline, Rimmel, etc.,etc.,..... there's many more, these are off the top of my head. You get the point, I'm a product junky and I have tried my fair share of mascaras. Taking into account all of the mascaras I have tossed out, given away , used up and or dried out tubes and considering that I'm 37 and been wearing makeup since I was very young, around 9 yrs old for modeling and fashion shows, it's very safe to say that I've tried over 100 types/brands of mascaras. This is one of my all time faves!! I am seriously shocked that more people do not love this...... guess it depends on what you look for in a mascara.
I like one that's thick, but not clumpy and not overly wet and messy. I use at least 2-3 coats and hate really wet thin mascaras, they take forever to dry and you can't recoat while still wet or they clump. They are messy to use and end up getting somewhere around my eye, meaning I now have to try and wipe it off without messing up my other makeup, as my mascara and lip are the last things I apply.... Ugh!! Great lash mascara would be a great example of this type, I really hate that mascara!!
My other faves are L'Oreal voluminous and DiorShow. I also love IT Cosmetics tightline mascara. I usually do a coat of tightline and then the voluminous and DiorShow, for me this makes perfect lashes. I have found though that this mascara can replace both the L' Oreal and Dior. It has the thick lash building quality of voluminous and the lengthening and separating quality of DiorShow in one. I love the big fluffy brush and it doesn't clump. I can use 2 good coats of this after using the tightline mascara and it seriously looks like I've put on false lashes, it adds that much volume and length to my lashes!
If you are going for the very natural look, then no...this isn't the mascara for you. When going for that look I just do 2 coats of the tightline by IT, so check that out if your looking in this direction, its great.
But, if you want BIG, thick, long lashes, you will love this!! If you really like L'Oreal voluminous mascara, then I highly recommend trying this, its like an upgraded version of voluminous with an even better brush!!!! :)
