If I could give decimal ratings, I would give this a 3.7 in all categories. It is above average, but not quite phenomenal. This is the 2nd Rimmel mascara I've tried, & I sorta like the orig. lash accelerator more. Having said that, this is a really nice drugstore mascara. It primarily gives volume, but provides some lengthening and separation as well. Curling power is average -- no better or worse than any other mascara I've tried. What I like the most is that once you give the formula maybe 2 weeks to dry a bit, the texture is super buildable. You can really pile it on without it smooshing your lashes together. I have decent natural lashes and prefer a dry formula generally. Staying power is good, but it can get sorta dry and flaky at the end of the day. It does not make your lashes as hard as some other mascaras, though. My beef with this product is that i think the brush is too big and i always seem to smudge it on my upper lids, even when being super careful. i find it works best if you massage it into the base of your lashes in sort of a circular motion & then just zig-zag it on to your outer lashes to your heart's content. Overall, I do like this but I like to try a new mascara every time I repurchase. So I WOULD buy it again in the future, but probably won't. :P
