Clumping: Not much. I found it only clumped if I applied two coats. Works best with one coat.
Smudging: Very little and only after jogging. The moisture on my lids made it run a little but not to the extent of raccoon eyes.
Length: Whole lot of length here. The applicator does a great job of grabbing the lashes and extending them.
Thickening: The formula is very dark which I loved. Gives the illusion of thicker lashes.
Volume: Lots of volume here.
Longevity: Lasted all day without budging.
Ease of Use: The applicator is thin which makes for an easy application. Easy to get to the lower lashes as well.
Pros: It does as promises except it clumped with two coats. Love that it's very dark.
Cons: The only thing I didn't like was that it clumped with two coats.
End Result: What a bargain! The results are something I'd expect to see with a much more expensive mascara. I'm actually very pleased with this product. I'd purchase this time and time again.
