Smudging: None! Even in humidity, this mascara held up well.
Length: Lots of length here.
Thickening: Not too much if you just do one coat. Two coats will get you the thickening it promises.
Volume: Some good volume here, and the wand really helps with the separation of lashes.
Longevity: Lasted most of the day. While there was no smudging, half way through the day I lost some of the curl and volume.
Ease of Use: Small bristles and thin applicator make it easy to apply at the base and let you get into the inner corners. I also really love the shape of this wand. It's slightly bent, and lets you get to the bottom lashes with ease.
Pros: It does what it says it does, and that's hard to find these days. Also, for it not being waterproof, I was pretty impressed with its longevity.
Cons: Would have liked to see a bit more curl.
End Result: I really liked this mascara as well as the mascara wand. If you want a mascara that lengthens and separates, this is the one.
