Clumping: None. Wand separated lashes nicely.
Smudging: A lot of smudging within 3 hours of wear.
Length: Some but not by much.
Volume: The separation of lashes gives the illusion of volume.
Longevity: 3 hours in and I had mascara under eye eyes and on the lash line.
Ease of Use: Despite the big wand, it actually coats all the lashes well (top and bottom). It's too bad it didn't last all day.
Pros: Sadly none. The lack of longevity negates any positives.
Cons: The smudging within 3 hours.
End Result: If it hadn't smudged so quickly, this would have been a good mascara.
