Most Helpful Positive Review My new holy grail!
I'm not a mascara person or much of a reviews person. I read them, but I don't really write them unless I find something worth writing about. I usually stick to either Lancome's waterproof formula (if I need that) or Better Than Sex/Perversion (Too Faced/Urban Decay) for mascara. I tend to use high-end mascaras because the drug store ones are more clumpy. I have very thin, medium-blonde colored lashes. They practically disappear. I also have tiny eyes so I sometimes find that brushes that are too big/bulky are harder to use or get everywhere in the process. I got a trial size of this from Tarte's website when I ordered the Unleashed palette and just threw it on - honestly because the package was hot pink and I thought why not. I was BLOWN AWAY. It has done for my lashes what no other mascara has. One coat, top to bottom, the big fluffy brush took over every last. They're separated, look fuller and longer. I can't wear fake lashes but I feel like without that messy tubing mascara this is the closest thing to false lashes I've ever used and I LOVE IT. It's seriously my new holy grail. I'm only writing this review because I was about to purchase the full size from Ulta and saw some negative comments so wanted to throw in my two cents because I am sorry it didn't work out for those that it didn't work for but for me it's absolutely beyond amazing.
Most Helpful Critical Review Big Ego is Really All Its Got
This mascara is appropriately named because it thinks it's a lot better than it is. Took three coats to do the job other mascaras at this price point do in one. I seriously couldn't believe it's advertised as a "big lash" mascara. Lengthened only a tiny bit and did very much volume. And four hours after application, it had pulled all the curl from my lashes. And the brush is so big at the tip, you can't get it into the corners to do small lashes. I'm giving it to my daughter because she barely wears any makeup and this light formula MIGHT work for her. And I'm not sure about that. For this performance, don't waste your money. Maybelline Great Lash will do the exact same thing for six bucks - probably better.

This mascara is literally the best in the world, it is so lengthening, voluminous, not to mention how well the brush separates my lashes!
My favorite mascara EVER!
Brie from Chicago
I don't understand why this mascara only has 3 stars. I have tried every mascara with a fan following out there, and is my absolute favorite mascara I have ever tried. It's so perfect for a daily, natural look. It's never clumpy, doesn't irritate my eyes, and makes my lashes look full and wispy.
Cerilla from WI
I received mine as a gift, and I was reluctant to try it. I decided to give it try, and to my surprise, I was impressed. I have fine, barely there eyelashes. And honestly in the first swipe, it was a WOW moment. I believe the design of the brush is what helps. I didn't experience any flaking, nor did I have the urge to pick it off with my fingernails at the end of the day as some mascara's do. No smudging either. Came off with my microfiber face cloth. Nice product. I will be purchasing in the future.

I have barely-there, light colored lashes. Normally I buy Better than Sex or Lash Paradise. But I totally dig the curling action I get from this mascara. It defines the lashes really well too. I applied a few coats and I got big, thick,, long awesome lashes.
Vegan and Delicious!
Juiceman from WISCONSIN
I love this product. It's vegan so SCORE! It also has a large wand for easy application. 10/10

Love this mascara!
Jessi from Wisconsin
It's really hard for me to find mascara that works for my eyelashes; therefore, I'm pretty picky. I have always been a Tarte mascara fan but this one is my new favorite! LOVE!
Pae from Fort Forth
My natural lashes are already really good, unfortunately the picture on the box is nothing like what I got. I even tried applying 3 layers. Barely any length was added. I wouldn't buy it again :(
Nicolle from Heath ohio
I purchased this, in hope that it would lengthen up my lashes and made them have more volume.
To be honest it seemed a little dry and didn't do quiet the dramatic look as expected.
BEST MASCARA EVER ❤️
Ch2istie from Wisconsin
I absolutely love this mascara! In my opinion no other mascara compares to it! I used to use the Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara but since using Big Ego, I never went back.
YES! Holy Grail
Lili from New York
Oh my goodness! I love it. This just amplifies my lashes and makes them look A-Mazing! I wear this along with my Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume and my lashes look so good. They look so bomb that my little sister kept pulling at my lashes asking if they were fake. Lol
Katers from AZ
One of the worst mascara that constantly transfers to my upper eyelids and once it gets in the skin, I find it hard to get off unlike others. So much better on the market. Don't waste your money. I don't understand the other good reviews.
Full and bold
Melissa from Michigan
Doesn't cake to your lashes making them feel naturally bold
T from USA
I got this as a trial size and love it so much that I will be buying a full one. It stays on all day, I don't have many issues with clumping or flaking, and I like the brush a lot. It curls my lashes, gives them volume and length, and doesn't rub off under my eyes.
Only giving it 4 stars because it takes me 3 coats to get the results I want.
I love this mascara
Tracit5150 from Mckinney,Tx
I read the reviews-but I love this mascara. It does NOT leave me with racoon eyes-it lasts me all day
Great Mascara, especially as a base coat!
Jag from Detroit, MI
Got this mascara in the trial size, and LOVE it! So much I am buying the full size. I have found the best way to use this is as a base coat, and then I add covergirl lash blast on top! It is the perfect combo that lasts forever without flaking. Lengthens and looks amazing on its own as well! Not sure how there are negative reviews for this because it's amazing!
Miranda from Alabama
I got this in a travel size and it has changed the game! I have been using Telescopic by L'Oréal on and off my whole life because it's the only one I have found that gives me length and doesn't have an annoying brush. Big Ego gives me length and so much more with a thick brush that isn't annoying. The fact that it is vegan and made by a trusted company like Tarte makes it even better. This is no doubt my new go-to!
Loved this mascara!
Rachel from Reading pa
This is the perfect everyday mascara
Great lash curler formula
Meemaw from Michigan
I loved this mascara in my Ipsy bag so went to get the full size. It works great on curling my lashes. The only thing I don't like is the wand. But I'll live with it.
Not my favorite
Make UP from Michigan
I wouldn't purchase this again. I have long, natural lashes and it only put a thin coating over my lashes. I will stick to my normal favorites.
Great, but you have to work with it
L from Houston, Tx
I have long and straight lashes and it is very difficult to find the perfect mascara. This mascara has an amazing formula, no clumps, my lashes looked full and voluminous but it only curled my lashes for a few hrs. After a few hrs of wearing i had some amusing on my bottom lash line (happens to me with most mascaras) but i got it off easily with a q-tip.
I returned this product
EC from Park City Utah
It did not work for me. I returned the product.
JMC5886 from Huntsville, AL
This mascara was so messy, by the end of the day I looked like a masked bandit because of how much it transferred to my lower lids. Couldn't hardly wipe it off throughout the day, either. Also tried different types of setting sprays with it, and it still smudged. Would not recommend.
Would buy this over and over.
AKA624 from Los Angeles, CA
One of my favorite mascaras hands down. Makes my eyes look big with lengthening and volumizing while not including any ingredients that normally irritate my sensitive eyes.
Not sure where all the other reviewer complaints are coming from since I've never had issues with smudging or flaking. I've tried many mascaras in my life and hope this one sticks around.
This is truly such a great mascara
Brynn from PA
This mascara doesn't come up clumpy or anything like that!! It is actually amazing
