Packaging: When I first picked it up I was worried on how light it felt, because it didn't feel like there was any product in the tube. I haven't finished it yet, and I have been using it everyday for about three weeks, so that's good! Its the same style tube as the original, nothing special but a sleek gold color.
Application: To me this isn't a very voluminous mascara, I have used better in the past. I think it separates the lashes better than anything. It does get clumpy once you apply the second coat, so you really have to work with it. I don't normally wear this by itself I think it works better combined with other mascaras. Right now I am using this as the base and then topping it with Maybelline falsies.
Wear: I have never had a problem with mascara smudging on me until I wore this! I am guessing because it is such a "Wet" mascara. But it does stay very black through out the day without fading.
Let me know if you have tried this mascara and how you liked it. (:
