I thought the same, especially the one from L'Oreal - the only logical combination is plum shade for hazel eyes. Though I have that one and I don't really see the difference from brown/black, even on sunlight.

I don't see how these mascaras would enhance your eye color either. However, a plum shade looks a lot less harsh and because I have very light hair and skin I prefer it to an all-black mascara. I'm not a fan of of brown shades, they seem to enhance redness in your eyes while a plum shade makes them look brighter.

I don't know if this is asking to much of a mascara but I'd like to find one that leaves lashes looking a bit soft and glossy, like natural hairs.
I've read about some mascara with natural ingredients that was supposed to give this look but I forgot the name...

Lancôme Hypnose Star mascara is my absolute favorite at the moment, it has an amazing brush.

^ I am also satisfied with it so far. Lancome mascaras are my favourite.

Maybelline Full and Soft may give you that look. I don't find it to be particularly glossy, but it does look soft and like natural hairs.

^Thank you : ) I'll give that one a try if only I can find it in the stores.

I don't know if I really need glossy lashes but my natural hairs are kind of glossy so I figured it might help the lashes fit into my hair landscape (that sounded a bit disgusting).
With lashes that aren't naturally dark it's so hard to get the natural look with mascara.
I've tinted my eyebrows and I'm so happy I did but I'm a bit scared of tinting my lashes, would probably get the dye in my eyes...

^ I was about to recommend Maybelline Full 'n Soft too. It's great if you want 'natural' looking lashes. As far as the glossy effect, never tried it, but maybe you can try adding a final coat of clear gel mascara.

Why would you need a mascara that gives you a natural look? Though you could achieve it with every not-so-spectacular mascara (or even with the good one but layering it just once), that gives you a min. of volume, lenght and curl, but I don't see the point in that.

To darken the lashes without having to tint them I guess : )
Mascara doesn't work that well for me. My sister is a brunette with dark and somewhat thick lashes and it looks so natural when she wears one coat of mascara.
One coat on my lashes and they look like some bristles made from boar, like there's no way they grew out of my face .

I found Full n' Soft on ebay : )

^ I never used waterproof mascaras, but since I was on holiday and wanted my mascara to stay in place all day, I tried L'Oreal Telescopic waterproof (the blue tube) and it was good! Held the curl and it wasn't a pain to take off.
