I've been using this mascara for as long as I can remember, and I'm having a hard time letting go! It has the best brush, holds a curl in my lashes while lengthening them and looking and feeling natural. It used to be available in brown and lasted forever. Now for some reason they stopped making this item in brown. I've still been buying it in black when I can find it, but it seems to dry up much faster, flakes all over, and the brush disintegrates. Maybe I'm just getting old batches because it's so hard to find these days. Maybelline, I beg you to bring it back in brown! I see I'm not your only customer who is asking for this. Pretty please?!
I wear waterproof mascaras so that my mascara stays in place and I don't get raccoon eyes under my small eyes. I know they can be harsh to my lashes, so I tried this one on an online shopping whim since it it supposed to be easier to remove. Well, remove it did - but it removed itself, not with my help.
I've used this mascara 3 times. First day I used 2 coats and it was under my eyes in 2 hours; by the end of the day, it was at least to my cheek. Second and third days I used one coat with no other makeup, which lasted an extra hour before migrating below my eyes; by the end of these days, it looked like I had badly smoked eye (see image; please don't judge the brows - I should have combed them before taking the pic but I was heading to bed lol). I did not use any eye drops or rub my eyes these 3 days of use. I am returning this product. It just will not stay on my lashes. Such a bummer.

I used to use this for a few years now. It is super clumpy and smells like legit paint. I finally found the best fit for me which was waterproof lash sensational. It is literally the best. This stuff is okay, it's just SUPER clumpy and is really hard to get off.

My lashes are pretty straight so I definitely prefer waterproof mascara to help hold a curl. I find a lot of waterproof mascaras wind up looking clumpy and unnatural though. This is my favorite mascara because it's fully waterproof but leaves my lashes looking clump-free, soft, and naturally fluffy.

If God himself were ever to have created a mascara, this would've been it. I've preached the Full & Soft gospel since I could buy it for less than $5 at a big box store. The brush is perfect. The consistency is perfect. It's just PERFECT!!!!

I really like this mascara and I'm never one to make reviews. However I really felt this is worth it! I've tried many fancy brands that make waterproof and this one is by far the best! The mascara has a smell to it, I think because it's waterproof so it's gotta be a little different than other normal mascaras. You don't smell it after you apply it. This is 100% definitely waterproof for me. I've worn it at the beach, in swimming pools, river etc. and it stays! Washing it off isn't crazy hard if you wash your face right and thoroughly. I use micellar water on a cotton sponge to remove eye makeup first, and wash my face with a cleanser, then use the micellar water again for any left over makeup residue, and last a toner and done. Not that difficult. Anyways, I do really recommend if your looking for a waterproof mascara!

I've tried many brands of mascara from drugstore to high end and I always come back to this one. It's the best mascara for long, full lashes. It doesn't clump either. The formula is amazing!

This mascara is very dry and flaky. It made me have flakes on my lashes when I used it. It's also not waterproof like it claims. If I rub my eyes, it smudges and creates black smudges. I've tried better mascaras seriously stay away
Dani from Missouri
Product was average, a little clumpy. But it smelled like plastic! Do not recommend
Maybe not Maybelline from San Diego
My eyes are normal oily and it smears to the under eye part within half hour or so wearing it. I have to use concealer to cover up the dark it leaves behind.

I first tried this mascara as a teen, and 15+ years later, it is STILL the best mascara I have ever tried. I have your typical puny Asian lashes not even months of a prescription lash serum could save! But Full N Soft (waterproof) has beat out other drugstore brands and designers for me. The only thing that has ever come close was Diorshow but why pay more than 3x the cost for the same result? Though it doesn't work miracles, it does a great job at volumizing and lengthening while not clumping. The non-waterproof formula doesn't deliver the same results, so this is my go-to. I still like to try other brands out of curiosity, but I always come back to this one.

It doesn't lengthen my lashes, but it gives a nice dark line to them at the base. Doesn't clump at all which is good.

I've never written a review, but I HAVE to for this one. My lashes are so straight that you could use them as a ruler. So, I curl them because I absolutely love the look of full and long lashes. But every mascara I've ever had has weighed them down. I've tried $30 mascara, I've tried $2 mascara, but THIS is my holy grail. I'll never use another mascara. It's lightweight and easy to coat every lash, the applicator is fluffy and easy to use, and the formula is buildable for gorgeous results. I can't recommend this mascara enough.

This mascara smells like gasoline. I know you're not supposed to smell it but when I opened it, I was overwhelmed with the strong smell. It also took me a few coats before i could get it to look like i had mascara on and it definitely wasn't waterproof like I was hoping. It did it's job but i would not buy it again.
Joss from Lompoc, CA
I just used this mascara and so far I love it. It goes on very smooth, no clumps; it's not thick and clumpy. I have yet to see if it smudges after long wear. I love how it lengthens my lashes. I have short straight lashes and have trouble finding mascara that actually makes them look longer.

I've been using this mascara since Maybelline discontinued the Turbo Boost Volume Express waterproof mascara. I LOVED the Turbo Boost Volume Express, used it for over 20 years, I was heartbroken when it was discontinued. I searched from drug store to high end and pricey for a replacement, but no other mascara compared until I found Full n Soft. Full n Soft goes on smooth, layers nicely, doesn't clump or crumble and definitely adds a lot of volume. It finds the smallest lashes, and holds curl all day. It also stays put even during high humidity and sweaty workouts. It is soft on lashes, even the way the wand comes out of the tube is smooth and soft. It's a nice, no nonsense, does what it promises mascara...I'm sick of all the gimmicky mascaras that are out there now. Full n Soft also comes off easily which is a big deal, no one wants to lose lashes removing mascara. I truly hope Maybelline keeps producing this mascara. Discontinuing Turbo Boost Volume Express was a huge mistake but this mascara is comparable and able to take its place for me.

If you like soft fluffy lashes that look naturally fuller and longer, this is for you. I thought it was impossible to find a mascara that I would love the way it looks, be long wearing, flake free, smudge free, hold a curl, non irritating, and easy to remove, but I finally found it! It stood up to 12 hours of wear in the heat, sweaty oily skin and all.
Catt from Massachusetts
This mascara is not waterproof. Within 2 hrs it was smudging.
Heather from San Diego
Love this product! Not completely waterproof but for the price it's totally worth it.
RoboUnicorn from Columbus, Georgia
Pretty decent waterproof mascara. I still get some fallout at around 5-6 hours.

I've been using Neutrogena waterproof mascara for a year, and decided to try this Maybelline Full N Soft. Was disappointed - it was hard to apply and clumpy. Would not buy again or recommend. :(
Sam from Michigan
If you're looking for a mascara that makes your lashes look naturally long and dark, THIS is what you need. When I first tried it I was slightly disappointed but after applying a second coat all my worries vanished. This mascara has just the right formula to make lashes look natural, with no clumping or tackiness to it. If you want that effortless, no makeup makeup look then I highly recommend this stuff. Lengthened my lashes and lasted all day, even in the heat!
LDude from Tyler, TX
Thanks to Iliang09 review. I've found the best mascara! I've got the Asian straight eyelashes and have to curl daily. Usually other mascara would make my lashes go back down and do not stay curled. Fear no more! This one has held up all day! No raccoon eyes either. LOVE THIS! Will buy again and again! And it's so cheap!
Sarina from MA
This is my daily mascara and every time I try something else (usually because I want a lighter black/brown and this one is only available in very black), I end up coming back to Full N Soft waterproof. It's the right balance of adding some length and volume for everyday wear - I just want to add a little pop, not look like I'm about to walk the runway. This gives me the look I want and it lasts all day. I have to wipe the wand with a tissue before applying to avoid getting too much on my lashes, which I've found is true for every mascara I've tried, and I only need one coat. This formula leaves my lashes soft and I don't seem to have any falling out on occasion like when I use other mascaras. I'd be delighted if Full N Soft were available in a lighter black or brownish color option!

I recommend this mascara for women who have thin eyelashes. The power of this mascara keeps your eyelashes curled which won't weigh it down, it gives you 0 clump, and it leaves your eyelashes long/full and soft which is super amazing! Don't hesitate to buy it!

Gives you a nice natural look. No clumping!! And it gives you more length/volume.
Lash Enthusiast from Irving, TX
I love how it gives your eyelashes more length and it's not clumpy. It gives off a more natural look, but in a good way.
