With my recent order on lookfantastic.com I received a sample size Urban Decay mascara called Big Fatty Mascara. I was really curious about this mascara since UD has never let me down. There’s not one product from them that I don’t like. And since I am very picky with my mascaras I was afraid I wouldn’t like it. But I have to say that I was quite happy with this one.
The packaging looks very retro and cool, again, typical UD. This mascara has a long brush with bristles around the tip which is perfect to get into the corners and really accentuate the tiny bottom lashes. It’s a dark black color, the one I like the most. It’s also long-wearing and smudge-proof but not to get confused: it’s not a waterproof formula.
When I first started applying this I was really impressed with how it made my lashes look. It made them look voluminous and long and it didn’t clump. The second coat even enhanced my lashes more, adding more volume and length. But then the third coat was one coat too many. Although UD claims it’s buildable, I wouldn’t recommend applying more than 2 to 3 coats. After that it starts clumping a little bit and it can even look spidery. But if you limit yourself to using 2 coats, this mascara is perfect! It didn’t smudge on me throughout the day and kept the volume and length until I had to take it off. Removing this mascara went pretty smooth, which I wish I could say about all my mascaras!
The full size contains 15 ml and is available on beautybay.com for €17,50 (tip: look for coupon codes online!). This one is definitely worth picking up, if this sample size runs out, I’ll be buying the full size for sure! Although I really need to use my other ones up first 😉
