I have FINALLY found a mascara that gives my long lashes just the right amount of "pop" for my neutral daytime look for work that also doesn't smudge, clump, or smear all over my lids whenever I blink after application and does not destroy my lashes or makes them fall out when I remove my makeup at night. For a while I was using Urban Decay's Big Fatty which also nourishes and protects your lashes, but I always felt a twinge of guilt after dishing out $16.00 per tube. This mascara has the same benefits without the guilt. The only drawback is that I would not say it gives me "full, thick lashes" as promised in the description, but it does give my already long lashes just the right amount of lift without looking trashy. It also flakes minimally, but I can deal with that knowing my lashes will stay intact. If you're looking for something more dramatic for night, this isn't the right mascara, but for a natural, classic look for day, this is perfect.

Most mascara's hold curl very well for my Asian lashes. I have lashes on the longer side but not as thick as I'd like. This mascara straightens out my curled lashes, which is SUPER frustrating. I end up having to curl before AND after applying the mascara, thus increasing the chances of often pulling out lashes.

As a result of the lashes not holding curl, smudging always ensues. A dark ring around Asian eyes = legit panda. I would DEFINITLEY NOT be getting this mascara again.

On the plus side, if you already have lots of curl, this mascara is great for everyday look so lashes look soft and non-clumpy. It also lengthens a little.

Comments about Maybelline Full 'N Soft Mascara, Very Black, .28 oz:

I have really long eyelashes (it isn't as glorious as one would think). So I don't need a mascara that adds length, just one that hades volume. This works pretty good.
It takes a bit to apply it perfectly though to where it doesn't clump or stick my eyelashes together. I use this mascara along with a spare eyelash brush to separate my eyelashes a bit after I apply it and it has dried some.

      Comments about Maybelline Full 'N Soft Mascara, Very Black, .28 oz:

      I have flat, long lashes. I always curl them prior to applying mascara. This mascara immediately took the curl right out of my eyelashes, completely reversing all the effort I spent curling them. It must be because the first ingredient is water. Otherwise, it's fairly easy to remove and isn't clumpy. If you have naturally curly lashes, this would be a great product for you. Personally, I found it useless because it doesn't hold a curl.

        Comments about Maybelline Full 'N Soft Mascara, Very Black, .28 oz:

        I've been using this mascara for about 10 years. I purchase the majority of my makeup at the makeup counter and this is actually the only drugstore makeup that I use on a daily basis. I've paid 5x as much for high end mascara but I actually prefer this.

        I need a mascara that adds definition and length. Because my lashes are so thin anything that promises to "thicken" just ends up clumping or smearing.

        If I want a more dramatic look I use this for my first coat and add a second coat with whatever volumizing mascara I have on hand.

        This is my go-to daily mascara. I have sensitive eyes and seasonal allergies that aggravate my sensitivity to eye makeup. I've tried to switch to other, more dramatic-effect mascaras and always come back to this one for daily use. It's not a mascara that will give you a big-eye dramatic look, but if you already have dark, thick eye lashes like me, then this mascara is great for an every day look and will not crisp your eyelashes off!

          Comments about Maybelline Full 'N Soft Mascara, Very Black, .28 oz:

          I've used this since I was a teenager and now I'm in my mid-thirties. I sometimes get curious about "new" mascaras, so I try them every so often, but nothing ever compares to Maybelline Full'n'Soft, so I keep coming back.

          What I like most about it is that it doesn't clump. You can apply one coat for a nice natural look, or more coats for a more dramatic look. My lashes stay separated and fanned out, exactly what I want (no spider legs). I love the full brush, and the fact that it has regular bristles, not those rubber bristles that some newer mascaras have.

          It also washes away very easily with just face wash.

          I will be crushed if they ever discontinue it!

          Comments about Maybelline Full 'N Soft Mascara, Very Black, .28 oz:

          I liked the way it looks but it is impossible to remove. After scrubbing in the shower, I look like a raccoon. After using remover, it still remains on my lashes and inside lid. After days of not using it, there will still be some on my eyes. It gives me black eye boogers all the time. I get asked if I am wearing eyeliner when really it is just leftover mascara. I will not buy again because of this major flaw.

                Purchased this mascara because of all the great reviews. Worst mascara I've ever used. Clumpy, smudgy and very hard to remove.

                Curious about so many great reviews. Hmmmm ...

                  Comments about Maybelline Full 'N Soft Mascara, Very Black, .28 oz:

                  After I apply another "curling" mascara to my upper lashes, I apply the Full N Soft to my lower lashes. This mascara defines and amplifies my lower lashes better than any other mascara. By the time I finish my lower lashes, the upper lashes are dry, and I apply the Full N Soft over the curling mascara to add volume and length. Most importantly to me, the Full N Soft doesn't flake and, most pleasing to me, it keeps the other, underneath mascara from flaking. Full and Soft actually stays super soft all day long; when I touch my lashes, they feel natural. The Full N Soft mascara washes off completely and easily.

                      I have been purchasing several different mascaras from several different companies over the past months in search for one that adds length and volume without clumping and that could be purchased for a good price. This is by far the best drugstore mascara I've purchased - waaaaaay better than any of the LashBlasts ones or the ones from Almay. The only better mascara that I've found is from Chanel - and frankly I don't care to spend that much money. I recommend this product for sure!
