Smudging: Some.

Curl: Some.

Length: Lots of length.

Thickening: Some.

Volume: Some.

Longevity: Lasted most of the day.

Ease of Use: The wand is a little prickly. I had to be extra careful with the inner corners. If I got too close to the lash line, the wand poked and made my eyes tear.


Pros: Lots of length here! Also the wand has different size bristles, which is nice to get in all the nooks and crannies and really separate those lashes.

Cons: Prickly wand; and mascara wound up under eyes after a few hours wear.

End Result: I'd still buy it. I really loved the separation that the wand provided. For it not being waterproof, it did pretty well, but it does not 100% hold up in "hot and heavy situations."

Note: Urban Decay is certified cruelty free, but it is owned by L'Oreal, which is not certified cruelty free.
