Contrary to the rumors circulating in the kitty modeling world, the new Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara ($20) was NOT named after Tabs.
Although I can see why some would believe that to be true…
“I’m too husky for this box.”
If the Big Fatty Mascara name rings a bell, you’ve probably seen it before. It’s been a part of the Urban Decay line for years (in the psychedelic red and yellow tube). UD just revamped it and gave it a new outfit.
BFM promises a bit of everything — volume, length, definition, curl hold and jet-black color in a lightweight formula.
Urban Decay also traded the original Big Fattyâ€™s over-sized Diorshow-esque bristle brush for a minimalist approach. The sleek new brush head is designed to fan out lashes.
And those little nubs really get in there! When I used this today, my fringe looked s u p e r s t r e t c h e d out.
By the way, if you love the original Big Fatty, you still have time to stockpile. It’s still available on urbandecay.com.
I never gave the original Big Fatty a try, but I like what I’ve seen from this new version so far, especially the thickness I get from it at the base of my lashes.

This BFM has potential, and I plan to keep it on standby. I wish it lengthened my lashes and held the curl from my lash curler a little better, areas where I think my combo with Cannonball and Buxom has it beat, but Big Fatty should do just fine when I want to wear lashes a few notches up from natural.
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to Sephora, Ulta and select Macy’s stores

WARNING: Three Twins Lemon Cookie Ice Cream is dangerously good
Okay, new food obsession. I picked up a pint of Three Twins Lemon Cookie Ice Cream from Whole Foods the other day expecting it to last longer than two days.
TWO DAYS! That’s how long it took me to finish.
Oh…it tastes like ice creamy Girl Scout Savannah Smiles cookies. Yum.
I don’t know if it’s just a Bay Area thing (I hope not!) because Three Twins does have a couple of ice cream shops in the area.
Anywho, enough about cold things. It’s the first day of spring! I hope you had a lovely Tuesday.
