Clumping: Barely any. I wouldn't do more than 2 coats, though.
Smudging: A little but mostly in humidity.
Length: Incredible lengthening here.
Thickening: Yes! But again, careful with how many coats you apply.
Volume: Incredible volume here.
Longevity: For a mascara that isn't waterproof, I was very pleased with how long it held up. I didn't really start to notice any smudging till about 7 hours in.
Ease of Use: The giant brush makes it a little difficult to get into the inner lashes. It has a semi rounded tip but because the top of it is flat, it tends to collect a lot of mascara there.
Pros: If you want voluminous and long lashes, this is the mascara that will do it for you.
Cons: The flat tip brush. The size of the wand doesn't bother me much but I do wish the end of the wand was more rounded, like a ball.
End Result: I absolutely loved this mascara. One coat is enough to give you the effect it promises, 2 coats gives you more.
