Smudging: Some smudging as the day went by.
Curl: None extra.
Length: Despite the large brush, it does a really nice job of lengthening and separating your lashes.
Volume: Some volume with the help of the very dark formula.
Longevity: This mascara does really well in the beginning, but it did start to flake and smudge throughout the day. 6 hours in and I had some raccoon eyes happening.
Ease of Use: Getting into the lash base took a bit of work. The applicator is big, and the bristles are somewhat prickly.
Pros: As much as I'm not a fan of large applicators, this applicator does such a nice job in separating my lashes.
Cons: It doesn't hold up very well if you do anything other than sit or stay home. Any moisture will make it smudge, and that was very disappointing.
End Result: Pretty disappointed here. Out of all the things it promises, it does only one and that's separation. I didn't see much lengthening.
