I don't love Big Fatty as much as I do most of Urban Decay's other products. Not that this isn't a great mascara, it just doesn't do what I personally need a mascara to do. I find it to be a little dry, which makes my eyelashes clump together and look chunky rather than full. This is not a mascara that I can layer easily--it took a lot of trial and error for me to figure out the best way to use Big Fatty (personally, I usually do a coat of Supercurl, a coat of big Fatty, then another coat of Supercurl to define and separate). So, I don't hate it, but I guess my real lashes aren't full enough to get the full effect of this product.
Pros good pigment
Cons dry, clumps
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've never been much of a liquid foundation girl, but I decided to give this a shot since I'm addicted to Urban Decay. As usual with UD, I was not disappointed. The range of shades to choose from is pretty expansive, and the card that came with my sample helped me find the right shade without my ever having to leave my bathroom. I never feel like I'm wearing a full face of makeup when I have this on, which was always a turnoff for me when it came to foundation.
I work at a hair salon, so the fact that my makeup is on after getting sprayed in the face all day with water is always a plus; and, if I need to refresh my makeup to go out after a long day of work, I can dust on my Surreal Skin Mineral Powder and it doesn't look cakey or anything. And boy does this product LAST. I've been using it pretty much every day for about 6 months and still haven't run out yet. I did take off a little for quality, only because I feel like the product itself is lasting longer than the packaging! The cap has started to crack, and another piece around the pump is starting to come apart, and I leave this upright in my medicine cabinet, so it's not getting bumped around in my makeup bag like my other products. Otherwise though, a fantastic product!!
Pros great selection of colors, easy to apply, Lightweight
Cons product dispenser could be better
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got this as a sample and was skeptical at first, because it does seem to be on the orangey side, and I have pretty fair, cool skin tones. However, I used it once and knew I had to get the full sized. NSBB surprisingly doesn't leave much of a tint, but more of a healthy glow, without that "Jersey Shore orange" tan look. Urban Decay did a really great job coming up with a "universal color".
I don't have the greatest skin, so I either use this either under my Naked skin foundation, or for more casual days, I just dust my Surreal Skin Mineral powder over it. My complexion not only looks better, but I've noticed less breakouts since I've been using this. If my skin wasn't so sensitive and prone to redness, I would definitely use this product on its own, rather than as a primer. Yet another product that Urban Decay has ensured that I can no longer live without.
Pros Lightweight, a little goes a long way
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got this for part of my Edie Sedgwick Halloween costume and have been using it every day since. My eyebrows get very sparse closer to the bridge of my nose, so this product helps to make them look full and even. It was also great when I was letting my brows grow in because it masked some of the places when my hair hadn't grown in yet, and also took some of the attention away from any scraggly hairs I didn't want to pluck yet! The little brush it came with is perfect and easy to use. I do recommend practicing first if you're a novice like I was, because it's really easy to make one eyebrow darker than the other, and boy does that shadow stay put! Full brows are back in style, and this Brow Box is a must!
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is the only mascara I can use on its own without having to layer it over another. I love the curved brush--it makes it so much easier to apply. The way the brush grips my lashes really separates them so it doesn't clump (which is always my main problem with mascara), and makes them look so...fake! If I feel like a need some extra va va voom in my life, I layer it with Big Fatty to get that "real or not real" look. This product is something that I always need in my makeup bag. It can be a pain to take off, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make for great lashes.
Pros curls and separates
Yes, I recommend this product.

These lip glosses are awesome. The one I have is discontinued (Jesse), but it looks really great over my Lip Envy stain in Greedy when I need a refresh. It's a high shine lip gloss that has a surprising amount of pigment (most lip glosses tend to just look sheer on me unless I wear them over a lip liner or stain). It can feel a little on the tacky/sticky side, so that may be a turn off for some.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I stopped using my Eyeshadow Primer Potion for a while, because Urban Decay's eyeshadows go on amazing and stay on forever without it. I finally started using it regularly again, and I seriously notice such a difference, both with the vibrancy of the pigments and the staying power. I work at a busy hair salon, and sometimes I work long shifts. At the end of the day (or sometimes the next morning!), my eye makeup looks just as amazing as it did when I applied it 8, 12, sometimes 24 hours later. It's nice to be able to go out after a long day at work and know that my eyes look just as rad as they did when I left the house in the morning. Also, I've been using the same bottle for months and it's still not running out. Not only does this product work, but it will last you a long time!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've been using this power brush for a little over a year now, and I love it. This is a great brush for someone who needs something that is versatile and can do the job of a bunch of different brushes. It's main function is for powder (I use it for my Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup), but I also use it as a bronzer and blush brush. It also works ok as a finishing brush, if there's a little fallout from my eyeshadow. I haven't tried to use it with my Naked Foundation to blend.
Overall, this is the brush to go with if you're just starting out on your makeup brush collection (other than for eye shadow, obviously!). It's very versatile, distributes the product I'm using it with evenly, and all my UD brushes never lose any bristles when I clean them, which to me is the sign of a well made makeup brush.
Pros easy to use, even product distribution, bristles don't fall out, multi-purpose
Yes, I recommend this product.

Who said "only bad witches are ugly?"
I've been obsessed with The Wizard of Oz since I was a little girl, so the second I saw these palettes, I knew I needed both of them. I got Theodora first, and finally got my hands on Glinda yesterday. I'm in love. These are my first palettes with the new eye shadow formula, and I really do notice a difference.
The "Get the look" cards are helpful if you're a makeup novice or just want some inspiration, and the variety of colors are pretty great, even if you just get one or the other. I've never really been a neutral shadow gal, but I've been using all the browns in the Theodora palette, and I'm in love. Beware in particular is becoming a staple of mine. I've only used the Glinda palette once, but I can tell South is going to be a favorite. The Jealous and Spell duos aren't as pigmented as I expected (I'm actually a little disappointed), but they blend really nicely.
Anything that comes with a 24/7 pencil is always a bonus, and the Super Saturated lip pencils included are just feeding my addiction. Also, I love that I can keep using the palettes when I finish the shadows (I'm dreading the day I have to get rid of my Alice palette). As usual, Urban Decay has given me even more reason to remain a loyal customer <3
Pros great pigment, good value
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm sort of obsessed with this product. The first one I bought was Punch Drunk. I've since added Crush, F-Bomb and Naked to my collection (the latter 2 coming from the Oz palettes!). They're versatile, go on smooth, and the color lasts ALL DAY. Crush in particular really lasts, has great pigment, and because of the (very slight) purple undertones, looks great but different on everyone. I've had 2 co-workers go out and get their own when they tried mine.
I hope they're not permanently replacing the Urban Decay lipsticks, though :(
Pros great coverage, lasts all day, doesn't feather
Cons can dry out after several hours
Yes, I recommend this product.

Coverage without compromise. Our weightless formula blurs imperfections for a flawless finish that feels invisible, but looks professionally retouched.
 

Which shade should I chose?

I initially bought this product in 3.5. It's about time to repurchase, but I feel like 3.5 is a little too dark. I have cooler skin tones, but I feel like 0.5 would be too light. Should I invest in both so I can mix and make my own shade, or are the warm/yellow undertones in 1.0 and 2.0 subtle enough that it won't matter?
