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

Overall I really liked this mascara. It made my lashes long and gave them volume. The only thing I didn't like was that I would get black underneath my eyes whenever I put it on. I would definitely buy it again though.

I ended up buying this mascara twice which means it's a goof mascara that I often used but I wouldn't give it a full 5 stars. The brush is AMAZING at coating all the lashes and adding volume in seconds but the main downfall is how quickly it dries out. i recommend you start out by trying a travel size one!

At one point this was my favorite mascara, the formulation is more "wet" than many other mascaras, so that really helps with the length of your lashes, it's just a bit messy if you aren't careful and patient enough to let it dry! Also, no fallout... yay!!!

I did not really like this mascara mainly because it has too much product on the wand. I don't know if it's the formula or just the type of brush but it was way too clumpy if I used it without taking off some excess product, which is annoying. It worked ok on my lashes I guess but any drugstore mascara would be just as good in that sense and would be cheaper.

Honestly anytime I do a natural look I always reach for this mascara. It's not clumpy and it's not super volumizing it's not super lengthening but it works. It makes my eyelashes look very natural. I would absolutely buy this again and again. And I highly recommend it to anybody who like the natural look.

This mascara is good for volume and thickness. The color is very black and really defines your lashes. I like to layer this on top of lengthening mascaras my favorite pair with this is Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling Mascara they are both oil bases so they work really well together.

Currently going through a tube of this mascara. I have long lashes, but they're not too voluminous. This mascara gives it a lot more volume and it looks great! But only for a couple hours... after a little bit it starts to smudge and I start to look like a raccoon.
It's a good product, but could be better.

This mascara has got to be the best one yet. It adds lots of volume and lengthens the lashes nicely.It is not clumpy at all. It doesn't claim to be waterproof but it hasn't run when i went out in the rain. I definitely recommend you buy this mascara! It is the ONLY one i like and i have paid a lot for others mascara and this one seems to be the best

I'll be honest when I first tried this mascara I wasn't a fan. But a few months later I gave it a second shot when I ran out of my usual stuff and I'm so glad I did! I have very short, blonde eyelashes and this stuff really lengthens them and makes them look so much fuller and longer. Would definitely buy again.

I've become a HUGE fan of this mascara over the last couple months. I love the consistency of the makeup & the thickness of the bristles. I have long lashes to begin with, and this mascara makes application easy. It doesn't clump, nor does it flake throughout the day. Definitely will be purchasing this again!

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