Today's battle pits an old favorite against a new one. Since the @itcosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara ($24 for .3 ounces at @ultabeauty) and @stilacosmetics Huge Extreme Lash Mascara ($23 for .44 ounces at ULTA) have similar brushes and it appeared as though they gave similar results, I decided that I wouldn't need to continue purchasing both in the future, so I needed to determine which reigned supreme.

While the Superhero gave a bit more length, it also required a bit more finessing to apply it without clumps because the brush tends to have a lot of product build up. The Huge Extreme went on quickly and easily with similar volumizing results, just slightly less length (barely noticeable). Since my daily makeup routine already takes so long, the winner for me is Stila! If the results had been drastically different, I would have had no issue putting in the extra time to make my lashes perfectly clump-free, but since I didn't notice enough of a difference, I'll take the time savings! Also, although it didn't make my decision for me, the poll I posted on my InstaStory confirmed my conclusion - over 70% said they preferred the look of my right eye lashes!
Have you tried either of these mascaras? If so, which do you prefer? If not, what is your favorite clump-free, lengthening and volumizing mascara?
