I have finally gotten around to reviewing one of THEE most commonly requested mascaras. And I “think” this completes my reviews of ALL Maybelline mascaras currently in stores. Well, except Lash Discovery and Unstoppable. What do you think? Should I review those?
Price: 5 out of 5 (around $7.99 )
Packaging (Brush Wand): 2 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5
What it claims: “This mascara builds full, soft thick lashes without the brittle feel.
* Prevents loss of lashes with patented Quick Dissolve System that allows easy mascara removal
* No clumps, no globs
* Contact lens safe and hypoallergenic
* Washable; also available in waterproof formula ” (source)
The truth: Whoa! My lashes really are soft!
What I loved about it: I don’t know why–but I was shocked that my lashes actually stayed soft the entire day. Talk about upholding your claim, Maybelline. That’s friggin’ awesome!
What I didn’t like: Soft….YAY! Full….eh. And the wand is a big boy!
Overall: So I can see why so many of you requested this mascara. It probably stared you down. While you were glancing at the newer mascaras on the market, Mr. Full ‘N Soft was like,
“Hey!! Check me out….I’m old but I’m gold, baby.”
I know I’m not the only one that hears mascaras talking to them.
LOL, I’m kidding y’all. Kinda.
But yeah…Maybelline Full ‘N Soft is not bad. I will say that it isn’t GREAT for me because I desire darker lashes with more volume but this baby is perfect for everyday looks. If I happen to head to the gym after work, I don’t have to worry about it smudging and flaking. You’ll get some length. But not much. I like to think of this mascara as more of a “lash enhancer” if anything. If your lashes are already crazy long and full (then I hate you….lol, j/k) this would be perfect for you!
I should also mention that because it’s soft you don’t have to worry about any flaking. Most mascaras make your lashes hard. When they are hard and brittle you risk them [lashes] breaking and mascara residue falling in your eyes. Eww is right!!
Contact wearer or an allergic sufferer who is always eye-rubbing? Maybelline Full ‘N Soft would work for you too!!
A crazed mascara reviewer,
