by Yisell Santos

Clumping: None

Smudging: Some. Didn't do well in humidity. Both eye moisture and moisture in the air caused it to run a little.

Curl: Not by much.

Length: Pretty good length.

Thickening: Not by much.

Volume: Brush did help in separating the lashes.

Longevity: Half way through the day I had to do a little clean up in the under eye area.

Ease of Use: The unique shaped brush makes it easy to coat your lower lashes with mascara without smudging.


Pros: Good for lengthening and separating but no big pros here.

Cons: Smudged, not as black as is claims to be, crunchy lashes.

End Result: While this mascara did provide me with some length and volume, it just didn't perform well. I found it held up better if I wasn't outside too long or did too much activity. So, if you'll be inside most of the day (e.g., work), then it works fine. But a night out on the town or basic outside errands will make this mascara smudge. I also didn't like the applicator much. The ball tip was nice for the lower lashes but difficult for inner corner of the eye.
