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 wear it every day. It looks natural with out being over the top. Removes easily with eye makeup remover or coconut oil.

It's pretty good. If you have oily skin you need to add eye shadow primer before you put this on, otherwise it smudges.
Liz from New York
I tried this and am disappointed by the way it smudges as a waterproof formula. Not a fan.
Amy from Michigan
This mascara doesn't flake or smudge on it down. It enhances my lashes and gives them natural definition.

been using this since I was in highschool (late 90's) and while I have tried others periodically, I always come back to this one. it's just the best.

Best mascara ever, using 20yrs, tried high end and others in between but always back to this one. Lasts all day, nice full natural look

My mom has used this for years and it's never failed her so I decided to give it a try. I love the way it makes the lashes look, it's relatively natural so you don't look like you have spider legs coming out of your eyes. Only downside is that it makes my eyes sensitive. After using it for a few days I noticed my eyes were sore and dry. I still use it occasionally but I can't wear it consecutively.

gave me an allergic reaction. tried it and my eyelids were swollen, red, and blistering for days. never had a reaction to anything in my life. worst makeup product i've ever tried

This is hands down one of the best waterproof mascaras I've ever tried. I have straight lashes and so I have to use waterproof mascara to keep my lashes curled all day. The description "full n' soft" describes this mascara perfectly! It gives you a full lash look while also looking so natural. No clumps and actually holds your curls all day! Highly recommend!
Henny from USA
This is the best bang for your buck. It doesn't clump. It doesn't irritate my skin. Most importantly for me, it doesn't stick so I'm not peeling my eyes open all day. lol I will never use any other mascara other than this specific one.
GJB from Pittsburgh, PA
I really love this mascara. Easy to use and holds a curl all day. I have used quite a few waterproof mascaras and this is one of the best. No flaking, smudging and no need to reapply.
Elise from La
Simply just a good mascara holds curl easy to take off for waterproof and just nice fluffy and buildable mascara more on natural side but you can make it more dramatic with more coats
Ley from HI
The most underrated mascara! I've spent so money on high end mascaras but none compare to this one. It keeps my lashes curled, it's not clumpy, lengthened, defines, and washes off easily with oil-based makeup remover. I've repurchased this mascara several times and I don't plan on going back to high end mascaras.
Caroline from Boston
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.
M from Fort Lauderdale
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!
Fathia from NJ
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.
Lily N. from Indianapolis, IN
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.
McKayla from WV
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.
