I like a natural looking mascara that goes on evenly, and this is perfect for me. I like the waterproof version better because tend to get allergies bad and I have found that the non-waterproof version of this doesn't apply as evenly as this one does. Keep in mind though, if you reapply after it's dried it can clump and not go on evenly. So if you like darker, thicker mascara, this may not be for you.
I have found that it can be a bit difficult to remove fully. I haven't tried any fancy makeup removers, but I've found that if I use a makeup removing cleanser as well as an oil-based eye-makeup remover it comes off well. I have also found that I definitely need to replace the tube every 3 months or so, otherwise it starts to clump more than usual.
Overall, this is my one and only go-to mascara for everyday wear.
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.

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

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.

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.
MrsPineapples from Ca
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.

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. :(

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!

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!

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.
Alex from Houston TX
I usually like very light mascara and this has worked well for me. It's not extremely light though but it's not clumpy which is great. The wand doesn't get a bunch of product stuck in it like some cheap mascaras do. Definitely worth the buy.
lliang09 from Oakland, CA
I have incredibly stubborn straight eyelashes (typical of Asian eyelashes) and this mascara is the only formula that will keep my eyelashes curled after curling. This is with 2 COATS of Full n' Soft. Most other mascara formulas are too heavy and will have my lashes drooping back down and is stick straight again.
Belle from Georgia
Between the perfect wand and the perfect waterproof formula, this is easily one of the best mascaras I've ever owned. The luscious wand allows for full, even, clump-free application from root to tip with ease. And the formula? Truly waterproof- doesn't run, doesn't flake, and is very pigmented. DEFINITELY RECCOMMEND! 10/10
Lauryn from Colorado
This is such a good waterproof natural mascara! It doesn't clump but it adds volume and length. As a swimmer I can guarantee that as long as you don't rub your eyes, this is waterproof. No matter what I try I go back to this mascara
Bethmommyx5 from Illinois
I have been using this mascara for well over 10 years now, I have tried others and more expensive brands and always come back to this one, the others just don't compare.
AmandaV from Lancaster, Ohio
I have been using Maybelline Full N' Soft mascara for at least 10 years now. It stays soft, doesn't clump, doesn't smudge, and just looks very natural. I try others, but always come back to this one.
britnxyy_ from texas
One of the best waterproof mascaras, it did not smudge at all through a whole breakup and a funeral! 10/10, would recommend!
