Maybelline Full 'n Soft

Best drugstore mascara

Pros
  • Volumizing formula
  • Lengthens lashes
  • Minimal clumping
  • Affordable
Cons
  • May run or smear in the presence of water

Budget-conscious consumers repeatedly rave about Maybelline Full 'n Soft mascara. This reasonably-priced mascara is consistently well reviewed by both experts and users, lauded for its ability to add both length and volume while leaving lashes soft and clump-free. Users say its thick brush and dense bristles work together to apply a thick layer of mascara that easily builds from subtle to dramatic with each additional layer. Although experts insist that a single application of Maybelline Full 'n Soft lasts all day long, since it isn't waterproof this product isn't suitable for wet, humid or teary environments. Women who desire a waterproof product should consider the highly rated Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara (*Est. $25). Full n' Soft is fragrance-free and comes in three shades: very black, soft black and brownish black.
