Whoa- Big Fatty- Bam Ba Lam ba Lam


With a name reminiscent of a certain herbal ciggie, and the very posh Pucci-esque packaging, what is not to love about Big Fatty Mascara already? I mean seriously--I loved it before I even opened the box. It had me at hello.

Upon opening the package I was a bit alarmed at how big and fatty the mascara applicator part of the wand really was. It is HUGE. I was a little afraid at first, but upon touching this magic fatty wand to my lashes the birds started singing and pixies started dancing--if only in my head. The application of this mascara was wonderful. My lashes did not look clumpy at all. This is not a waterproof formula, but my lashes at the end of a rainy, windy day look as good as when I left the house this morning.
With a name like Big Fatty, I thought my lashes might look like this:
But, I was pleasantly surprised that they didn't. Tammy Faye's lashes sure were big and fat though! This is my eye lashes in Big Fatty at the end of a very long day.

I put Big Fatty on this morning before heading out the door in the torrential rain to Chicago. While in Chicago, I had to stand in the rain to wait for cabs, brave the weather getting from one place to another, walk from the train station to my car while getting soaked, get hit in the face with a nerf ball at doggie day care and still my lashes look great. No running, flaking, smearing or clumping.

I heart Big Fatty.

I did not use this product with a lash primer.

I would give Big Fatty a rating of a big fat 9.

Hmmmm...interesting comment. Are you just musing out loud about this cool and interesting mascara...
Are you calling me big fatty?

I am perplexed.

For what it is worth--I LOVE your blog.

Hm. I was slightly underwhelmed by the last UD mascara that came out, but perhaps I'll have to give this line another chance. I didn't even know they had a new one. Huh. Well, no shock I didn't know: the Nordstroms that carries UD in Portland carries quite possibly the teensiest stock of theirs. Like, the display is tucked into the back corner of the downtown store, so no one ever ventures back there. Including me.

Hi Katie,

I find it to be a little like Dior Show...only not quite as thick. I love it. I got it at Sephora in Chicago. Our Nordies only has a small amount of UD also.
I can send you one if you want.

lemme know!
