Smudging: This mascara definitely smudged and fast. Within minutes of application my under eyes were gray. After 3 hours I had full on raccoon eyes.
Length: None extra.
Thickening: The wand helps separate lashes, and the mascara is very black, which gives the illusion of thickening.
Volume: None extra.
Longevity: None. It failed to hold up and flaked.
Ease of Use: Easy to apply. The hourglass shaped brush lets you see your bottom lashes better and helps separate.
Cons: I disliked how fast the flaking happened. The price is steep for something that doesn't deliver.
End Result: I really wanted to like this mascara. I found that it flaked and smudged within a few minutes of wear, giving me raccoon eyes, and that was just doing simple at home chores. For someone like me who suffers from seasonal allergies, I need waterproof mascara during that time. This did not fulfill those needs. It claims it's waterproof and long lasting, but it is not so. Disappointing and not worth the price.
