The Big Fatty
 
 
If I were stranded on an island and I could take one makeup product it would be mascara, hands down. I have tried lots of different brands and types some great and some not so great. So any time I see a deal on mascara you better believe I scoop it up, hence this one from Urban Decay. The Big Fatty.
 
When black Friday rolled around this year Ulta had this mascara on special for $10 dollars. A pretty good price since it normally goes for $20. I had heard a few things and seen it popping up around some blogs so I wanted to give it a go and what better time than when it’s on sale?!
 
My thoughts you might be asking yourself? Well I am somewhat in the middle on this one. I think that it’s a descent mascara, I like that it’s a very dark black formula but I find it to be a very wet one.  When I first opened I thought it was just so wet since it was new but after having for a few weeks the formulation is still the same.
 
The short bristles really allow you to get down to the base of your lashes and gets them all nice and evenly coated.  The only thing was I found it easily clumped once I went in for a second or third layer. I have long lashes so sometimes this just happens and I use a clean spoolie to help separate them out again.
 
My biggest issue is that it really does smudge and since it is so wet it tends to get into my contact lenses and makes them blurry. As you would imagine it makes using this product a bit of a bummer. I’ll break this out every now and then but only when I’m not going to wear contacts that day.
Reviews for this product are pretty in the middle... Some hate it others love it. If you are into mascara with a wet formula I say try it out you might like it more than me!
Let me know if you have tried this one out!
