Curl: Very slight.
Thickening: Very slight.
Volume: Yes, especially after 2 coats.
Longevity: Lasted all day.
Ease of Use: A no brainer to apply. The wand is great, it doesn't accumulate or dispense too much product on to the lashes.
Pros: It does most of what it says it does and does not disappoint. The only off claim was about length: the added length wasn't "insanely long" - it was modest.
Cons: This mascara is slightly dry but that's what makes it waterproof. This will not deter me from buying it again, though.
End Result: Finally!! A mineral mascara that claims it's waterproof and IS!! I was not disappointed and really loved the look and feel of this mascara. I'd definitely buy this and recommend to others. Winner!
