Clumping: None

Smudging: None

Curl: None

Length: Only some, but that's probably because I could barely get to the lash base with the brush.

Thickening: None really. If anything, my lashes were more fluttery.

Volume: Some but not as advertised.

Longevity: Held up all day with no smudging or flaking.

Ease of Use: This wand is huge and made it almost impossible to reach the inner corners of the eyes. Anyone with small lashes would most likely find it difficult to see their lashes and apply the product. It took some time to get in there without touching the side of my nose with the wand and getting mascara everywhere.


Pros: It lasts all day, doesn't flake and gives good separation.

Cons: The wand was a deal breaker for me. Just way too big. It also doesn't really do what it promises. I was expecting extreme volume here and it fell short.

End Result: Great for everyday wear, but I recommend swapping out the brush. Maybe a brush you already love from another mascara or a disposable classic brush.
