Clumping: None. Brush separates lashes nicely making them look feathery.
Curl: Some curl but not by much.
Length: Lots of length.
Thickening: None. It gives more of a natural look.
Volume: Because the brush separates your lashes so nicely, it definitely gives the illusion of volume.
Longevity: Unless you're jumping in a pool, or swimming at the beach, this stuff sticks around all day.
Ease of Use: I love the thin brush. Getting into the lashes base, inner eye and bottom lashes is a no brainer.
Pros: Does exactly what it claims it does. Lashes remain soft.
Cons: I do wish the black was darker, but that's personal preference. Other than that, no cons.
End Result: I'm in love with this mascara. In fact, it's become my go to for my bridal clients. It also got me through allergy season without smudging.
