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 received this in a Naked kit and I tried it, but the thing I liked most about this mascara was that it didn’t dry my lashes out. They seemed lusher more moisturized somehow. Like that it didn’t flake off and leave raider under my eyes.

I got this as a free sample on one of my orders from Sephora and really enjoyed it. I feel like it gives really good volume and decent length. I loved the way it made my lashes look. I was disappointed in how easily it seemed to flake off. I was seriously considering purchasing, but found a drugstore brand (Maybelline Lash Sensational) that I love just as much, but it doesn’t flake and it costs a lot less. I still think it is a great mascara and I might buy in the future.

I love using this mascara when I’m going in with false lashes because it makes your eyelashes look so full when making it look so natural and makes your eyelashes just go right in with the false lashes and looks flawless and I love it!

I didn’t experience any smudging or flaking throughout the day. It really is an exceptional mascara and best fit for my girls who love dark and lush lashes. You’ll get a good amount of length and great volume but really I think the star quality of this mascara is just how dark your lashes will look. Which is a fantastic quality for a bangin’ eye look. Or you know, every day. If that’s how you roll.

This has been my go to mascara for a long time. It’s the blackest black and goes on smooth. I like the brush and it does a great job volumizing and a good job lengthening. My only issue is that is does smudge if your eyes water at all.

This mascara is so great on and applies great. It gives me volume and length and lasts all day. It also builds nicely which lets it have either a natural or bolder look. It also doesn’t flake which is a definite must for me personally.

I got a travel size of this mascara from Sephora with my Beauty Insider points. I love the results of using this - it separates and defines, is easily buildable for volume, and has a bold, dark finish. But I can't seem to keep it in place for more than six ish hours. Even with different primers and methods of setting it ends up all over my crease and undereye area at the end of the day, when other products hold up better. Not for those of us who have more oily/combo skin.

Such an amazing mascara. I have really thin and short eyelashes and this mascara makes my lashes look like they actually exist. I like to use this with the eyelash primer. It gives my eyelashes full volume and length which is awesome!

Yaaaaaaas!!!!  This is one of my favorite mascaras, it's crazy.  I get such dramatic, big, bushy beautiful lashes with this stuff.  I like the brush, seems to really help with volume for me.  No problems with flakes or raccoon eyes (being fair skinned that's not a good look so if I get either of these it's a deal breaker).  And being a contacts wearer I typically never have a problem with eye irritation.  It's basically a magical mascara.

This mascara is pretty average. It does lengthen lashes, but I definitely do not recommend this to people with thin lashes because the product weighs down the lashes and makes them droop. I think that if you have enough volume in your lashes, however, this will work wonders!

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