Smudging: Very little.
Curl: Some but not by much.
Length: Some length.
Thickening: Very little as it's a natural mascara.
Volume: I didn't see much volume here. None like it describes.
Longevity: This mascara held up all day even while running various errands and a very busy day at work. The only time it smudged a little was during the humidity test. Moisture in the air made the mascara run slightly under the eye area.
Ease of Use: Bristle brush makes it easy to apply.
Pros: Lightweight, soft and fluttery lashes.
Cons: The slight smudging during humidity.
End Result: This mascara is perfect for someone who's looking to give their lashes a little something. It's very natural so if you're looking for intense length, volume, and intense black pigment, this isn't it. However, I really loved this mascara. The Espresso (brown) color is fantastic for blonde lashes. The formula is pretty much exactly as the Gabriel Cosmetics Mascara. There needs to be a waterproof version of this made.
