Smudging: Some smudging and flaking half way through the day.
Length: Some but not by much.
Volume: Some volume, and the brush does help with that a bit.
Longevity: Flaking throughout the day, as well as smudging in humidity.
Ease of Use: Getting into the lash base took a bit of work. The applicator is very big.
Pros: None. There are better mascaras out there with the same price point that won't smudge like this.
Cons: The brush is too big, which makes the mascara difficult to apply. The brush doesn't let you see your lashes very well, making application a bit messy. I had to do clean up on my eyelids after application. It flakes throughout the day, so cleanup needed throughout day, too.
End Result: I'm not in love with this mascara. Granted the price is nice, but it's not worth the clean-up job during application and wear.
