Length: Lots of length.
Thickening: Not much.
Longevity: Lasted most of day.
Ease of Use: Love this wand. It coats the lashes evenly and doesn't make your lashes stick together with the second coat.
Pros: My favorite thing about this mascara is that my lashes definitely felt moisturized and soft after about a week or two of wearing.
Cons: Don't get this mascara wet. Any type of moisture (allergies, sweat, etc.) made it flake and smudge under the eye area. However, this made it easy to remove at the end of the day.
End Result: Despite the lack of longevity, I really liked this mascara and how easy it was to take off with little to no rubbing at all.
