This mascara is a pretty good every day option for me. It lengthens my lashes, defines them and gives them a little bit of volume. I do think that it actually does give my lashes a bit of a 'fanned out' effect. It doesn't smudge, which is a definite plus, and doesn't have any weird kind of smell to it!
