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

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara has the best brush to get every one of my lashes without clumping them together! It doesn't bleed like other mascaras I've used. I got mine from Ulta Beauty and the price was worth it! I'm almost out and I will be repurchasing! I would definitely recommend!

It's certainly a mascara, but other than that I was not impressed. The brush is meant to pack on the mascara, but it doesn't assist you in cleaning up the clumps, you'll need a separate brush for that. It doesn't smell, so that's a plus, but it isn't waterproof. I don't find myself reaching for it.

This is a pretty nice mascara. It's not the most amazing I've ever used but it's still a great mascara. I wouldn't mind repurchasing it at all. It gives very nice volume and length together. It lasts on my lashes and doesn't flake! Like I said a pretty typical one I don't regret the purchase at all

This is definitely a holy grail mascara. It is definitely not clumpy like other mascaras. Could be better for longevity, but makes your lashes long and voluminous. It is a little pricey, but definitely worth the price. This has to be Urban Decay's best mascara. I would definitely buy again and would recommend to anyone who wants beautiful lashes without the clumping.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara is a really good product but you need to be careful when selecting the size of your brush. With the larger brush it is very easy to do too much and be too liquidy, and will get everywhere. So, all in all a great mascara and lasts a long time, but you need to let it dry before blinking hard or doing any other makeup.

I am always looking for the perfect mascara and I feel like I may have finally found it! This is a game changer for me I need no primer with this rich, thick mascara and it looks great every time. A little pricier than what I usually spend but so totally worth it!

This is a fantastic mascara. I have longer eyelashes that curl without being curled so I don't use an eyelash curler or anything like that. The brush is awesome and applies well but my only qualm is that it seems to dry out relatively quickly (less than a month) and starts to become clumpy. But when I first open that tube, I love the results!

I really loved how easily this formula applied to my lashes. It felt fresh and didn’t dry out even after a year...made my lashes look full and long. The only problem is that it smudges under my eyes after a few hours of wear, which is a huge pet peeve of mine. If it didn’t smudge it would get 5 Stars!

I received a sample of this and I have to say that this is the first UD mascara that I have enjoyed. It is not my new go to but I didn't hate it. Pros: it stayed out all day. It was lengthening. Cons: I didn't notice any volume increase and it burns if you accidentally make contact with your eyes.

So this mascara is amazing and does a wonderful job! When you get black, you get BLACK. it's fantastic. I only give it 3 stars because it's not waterproof, the second water touches it, it will immediately smudge and come off. So if you're like me and prefer waterproof then this is definitely not for you.

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