Get bigger, blacker, badder lashes with our ultra-creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara. So intense you might need a safe word, Perversion glides on and gets you sexy in one stroke. (Yet it won’t quit until you say when.) It’s insane how black it is…the purest, deepest, most intense black color imaginable.

Perversion has a creamy, full-bodied texture that’s not too dry, not too wet. This allows just the right amount of "pull" so it glides through lashes. The result: incredible control for insane lashes. Go ahead and pile on coat after coat. Want to apply more before you go out at night? No problem. Even if it’s been all day since you applied, more Perversion always means more beautiful lashes. Our formula NEVER gets brittle or clumpy.

Perversion Mascara contains Hairdensyl, a complex blend of proteins and amino acids—including marine glycogen, known to stimulate lash growth. Honey extract provides deep nourishment, sea idrolized elastine stimulates the hair follicle, and marine collagen protects.

The twisted trim on the high-tech, volumizing brush latches on to each lash to separate and define; finally, a volumizing mascara with a clean, clump-free finish. It pulls through lashes smoothly and lays down a generous amount of product. No need to wiggle the wand or maneuver it at all different angles!

If you need to apply in public, you’ll look good holding Perversion. We emblazoned our gorgeous, highly metallized black tube with a big purple "Perversion" and our tagline: “Bigger. Blacker. Badder."

  • "I love the perversion mascara, gives so much length and volume but is not clumpy and the formula doesn't dry out for ages" in 1807 reviews
  • "While I haven't tried subversion, I LOVED perversion enough to seek out this place to write the review. It is the best mascara I have ever used. It is thick, but goes on evenly. It stays all day and looks phenomenal. I have very long lashes naturally and have had a hard time finding a mascara that I liked enough. Either they didn't cover my lashes well enough or it made them clumpy. This one doesn't do either! " in 676 reviews

If I had to write only one review in the world it would be for this mascara.  I have used very expensive mascaras and nothing compares to this one.  A few swipes and my eyelashes look like falsies.  It doesn't clump and a bottle is extremely affordable for how long the product lasts.  This is an amazing product I do not do my makeup without!!!!

My Holy Grail mascara!! I got this initially as a trial size in a purchase, and fell in love at first application! This feather light, black as black can be mascara finds every tiny lash and deposits just the right amount of product to make your lashes BIGGER, BLACKER, and BOLDER. Not clumpy, even if you try. Works so well with its accompanying lash primer (turns lashes white- dries clear, then really gives that VA-VA-VOOM look). Depending on how often you wear makeup/mascara, one tube will last about 3-4 months. I don't recommend keeping it after that time even if their is product left... Feels so good- like nothing at all. Makes you look like you're wearing falsies. Its like magic! (that's what my mother said when I bought her a box of two). Highly recommended. I have allergies and had given up on mascara a long time ago, until I found Perversion by UD. There are some others out that are 'OK', but I don't settle for 'ok'. I want the best. $22. Deluxe: $12.

A decent mascare, but not my favorite. It's nice and black, like I like, but I just don't feel like it gives me the volume I would prefer. I feel like it gives a decent amount of length though. It also tends to weigh my lashes down, which makes my curl sad.

This is my favorite mascara. I love it because it lengthens and thickens lashes. I feel like I'm wearing fake lashes. I've never gotten so many compliments about my mascara before using this product. It doesn't clump and it easy to apply. I sometimes wear it on its own for a more natural look, or can build layers when I have more eye makeup on. It's versatile.

This mascara has a drier formula which holds up the curl but doesn't give much length or volume with only one coat. However they're buildable. You get more of a dramatic look with this instead of clean and defined lashes. Doesn't flake and lasts all day! Average length and volume.

Best Mascara on the market. It has a great deep black color that allows for lengthening and a thickened look. It does not clump or flake (even if you are like me and pick at it throughout the day). I do recommend buying the mascara primer that goes with it called Subversion for a better, more professional look, however it is not always needed day to day.

This is my go to mascara. I just love this mascara. The first time I got this was the best day of my mascara days. LOL. It is long lasting, almost water-proof, I think. And I would always buy this again. I would recommend this for people who would want to give their lashes a boost in the volume and length department.

I've owned a sample size of this mascara for quite some time. The first time I used it, I wasn't a big fan. I just recently tried it out again and I LOVE it! It does come out a little thick on the wand, but I just wipe away some excess and it's the perfect amount! It adds volume and some length to my lashes and it doesn't run if I get hot or just from the daily wear.

I really like the consistency of this formula. It really coats a your lashes, and is very opaque. The packaging is great; it's heavy and feels luxurious to hold. The brush, however, is my main problem. I guess I just don't have the right eye shape for it since I almost always end up with mascara on my eyelid. That's far from a deal breaker, but it is a pain! .

Is this mascara easy to wash off? Does it leave lashes looking natural or spidery?
