I just want to thank all the MUAers that recommended this mascara!!! I was never able to wear mascara (such a travesty) because I could never find one that didn't smudge and make me look like a panda after a couple of hours. And after I discovered MUA and started reading the reviews I decided to try Full & Soft. I really love how beautiful and natural my lashes feel. F&S is my everyday HG mascara now. You know how sometimes when you wear several coats of mascara it feels so uncomfortable like you are wearing pine needles on your eyelids? Well, this mascara leaves your lashes - soft & flexible. If you are looking for vampy sex kitten lashes this might not be the right mascara for you (try Diorshow instead). But if you want a fresh, pretty, everyday mascara that's comfortable to wear all day - this is it!!! ps - I am planning on trying Cover Girl Exact Lash another MUA fav and will keep you all posted on the comparision. continued >>
I love this stuff. I have been using expensive mascaras, trying to find the perfect one, and then I tried this and I love it. It makes my lashes full and soft without clumping or flaking. One coat for day, two for night.
Sorry to spoil the great reviews, but this mascara does absolutely nothing for me! In fact, I even prefer great lash over this! It doesn't add much length or volume to my lashes, doesn't live up to the 'softness' claim, doesn't build up very well with 3 or 4 coats. Ugh. I use this for work (no way would I wear this with an evening look) but I already can't wait til it's finished and I can try something new. And I was so excited about trying this too! (BTW IMO the Max Factor Lash Perfection/Masterpiece mascara is a waaay better drugstore buy).
Had absolutely no effect on my lashes. Hated it, wayyy too overated. Bleh
I have used this for years. I try others and always come back to this. I also love the waterproof version. Both stay on great. I bought yesterday, Walgreens has buy one, get one free!
Iíve been using Full N Soft since it first came out; Iíve never changed mascaras and never will. I love that it separates all the lashes, they donít feel goopy, doesnít flake, but most of all no raccoon eyes. Iíve been pairing the Full N Soft mascara with the Intense XXL primer, my lashes look better than ever. I should note that I have short, fine lashes, but the result is longer, fuller looking lashes. I usually stock up during a buy 1/get 1 free sale from Walgreens, each ends up costing ~$3.50.
I don't think this mascara is anything out of the ordinary. I have another review of this mascara's waterproof version, which is my favorite mascara ever! It's weird, but there's a night and day difference between the non-waterproof, and waterproof version of this mascara. And this one I just don't think does a better job than the cheapest mascaras, if you're looking for something that will color your lashes, sure use it, anything will work. But if you're looking for the true "full and soft" lash, try the waterproof version.
After reading the reviews I thought I'd give this a try after using the classic maybelline mascara for years. This stuff clumps my lashes together and is icky looking and feeling in general. Not impressed... EDIT: I think when I first opened this tube it was just really full and so it was really clumpy but now it's my favorite mascara for sure! It's not HG but it does work better than most.
No matter how many different brands I try, I keep coming back to Full and Soft. It makes my lashes longer and fuller, but it's a little bit dry and not that soft after all. The reason why I like it is because of the vast improvement of the appearance of my lashes. Who cares if it's a little dry...
I am giving this five lippies because this is the mascara I have been waiting for! I usually (or in the past I should say) buy Clinique mascara, this is one of my third drugstore mascaras after trying some L'Oreal ones. This is PERFECT. It gives my lashes that OOMPH so I have big beautiful eyes. And they don't get crunchy and flake down during the day like some. I would have to say this even gives my lashes a curl and keeps them up. I get this in the dark brown. I am now about to open my second tube. Thank you Maybelline! The price is much better than what I am used to paying as well.
