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."

Urban Decay is 100% cruelty-free.

  • "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

I recently got this on sale with the Eyeliner and fell in love.
The brush is fat, and comparable to the Better Than Sex Mascara. It layers really well, gives volume, and lengthens. It doesn't give much separation, more of a chunky finish-but not spider clumps. It also holds well on its own.
I do wish it were waterproof, because I do have to top it off with a waterproof mascara.

I got this mascara as a sample from one of my play box by sephora. I fell in love with it after using it for the first time. It gives your lashes volume, lengthens your lashes really good and doesn't clump even if you apply multiple coats.

I hate to do this because I LOVE UD, but this mascara is the worst. It's so thin, especially for how expensive it is, and it doesn't build well at all. It gets very flaky on my lashes, dropping little black pieces all over my face all day. Yuck. I received a sample of this, but I definitely would not purchase this at all.

Pretty good mascara!! Makes my lashes nice and long. There's def a lot of mascaras i have a hard time deciding which one is my favorite. This one came in a set of urban decay travel set. I would def buy it again. Found mine at Sephora.

This was my holy grail mascara and it is really nice, but i found that it would bleed and smudge under my eyes. I have noticed that wearing a good setting spray does fix this, but it can be a pain to have to always do it. Still a great mascara and probably in my top 5, but i don't reach for it as often as some others.

Good mascara that lengthens my lashes and does make them appear thicker. The formula is rather wet and the brush is smaller than I prefer. I received a sample of this for my birthday. I do not think this is a formula that is worth the price tag on it so I will continue to purchase drug store mascara for half the price. If this product was cheaper I would repurchase.

I used to use big fatty by urban decay, It was one of my favorite mascaras and when they discontinued it, I had to find something new, this was the closest thing I found to it, it made my eyelashes super dark, and gave them the falsies look , the only bad thing was how quickly it would dry out, but besides that I love it!

This mascara is a life saver for me! I am so picky when it comes to mascara and this is my all time favorite. It took me years to find but once I did I haven't stopped. It doesn't clump or flake and goes on so smoothly. The brush is a thick brush and not comb. It is very reasonably priced and I normally get it at Ulta

As far as black mascaras go this one works. Has that typical spooly wand. It doesn't really give much definition or length. Its a medium-thick consistency. It's very black, which is great. Looks great on all colored eyes. I'd recommend giving it a try in a small trial size before you commit to it. I'd probably test drive others before I buy this again.

I only have the travel size of this mascara, so I can’t really speak for the full size. Nevertheless, I really like it! The brush is really nice and big without being too bulky! The only downside I’ve found is the formula was a little watery, but maybe I just got a weird batch. I will most likely purchase this product in the future!

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