Love this mascara! I think its safe to say I'm a mascara junkie, I find myself trying something new then going back to this gem! (My last try was they're real from benifit, so disapointed from all the hype). Anyway, my past faves have been diorshow, buxom, urban's skyscraper and bare mineral volumizing and I say this beats them all!

Pros: leaves lashes soft (this is my must have in a mascara), layers well (good for the office & the club which is rare) and dries quickly which is important for me b/c I layer, doesn't flake, doesn't irritate my super sensitive eyes, super rich black, doesn't clump. This is a very buildable mascara, you can obtain very false-like lashes without the "I'm wearing tons of mascara" look, yay! Comes off easily w/mu remover, nice big brush, the list goes on...

Cons: doesn't come in waterproof (b/c its almost summer), seems to loose volume throughout the day (however you CAN layer hours later without clumping, woo hoo!)

I cannot comment on curl hold as I don't curl my lashes. Overall I love this mascara, its hands down Smashbox's best. I will probably continue to hunt for something waterproof for the summer, but for now its my go to :)
