Smudging: Slight, about halfway through the day.
Curl: Some, but did not hold up.
Length: Some, but did not hold up.
Longevity: Lost the curl and length mid day.
Ease of Use: Pretty easy to use. Just be careful with the wand. It holds a lot of product and can either make your lashes look clumpy or wind up on your eyelids.
Pros: I really liked the intensity in color here.
Cons: My problem is mostly with the wand. It's quite large and while applying, I always wind up with mascara on my eyelids near the lash line.
End Result: While the wand isn't my favorite, I really liked this mascara. The smudging halfway through the day wasn't super intense and mostly looked intentional (like a bit of a smokey eye).
