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

At first I received a sample of this and I fell in love. I then went to go buy a full size of it. It just lengthens and volumizes my lashes so well. I just love it and it makes my lashes really dark as well.

Even without curling my eyelashes, this lifts my lashes and make them super bold. Paired with an eyelash curler, I look like I'm wearing falsies. I really like the look I get from this mascara, and although it is pricey, it's pretty much worth it.

Love this mascara! I was iffy about the bristle wand initially but really enjoyed the length and volume it added. No smudging but was slightly difficult to take off at the end of the day (I recommend an oil cleanser). I will most likely repurchase!

This is a nice mascara. It doesn't clump or dry out fast, it doesn't flake throughout the day, it doesn't smell weird or get sticky, and it's really surprising quality for Urban Decay. It makes my lashes look nice and look longer, as a bonus point.

Definitely an all around awesome mascara. I get tons of volume from it, but not too much length. Long lasting. Doesn't get gloopy or clumpy. Perfect for every day use. Would definitely buy again

I wasn't wowed. I did not hate it but I do not think it is worth the money. I would prefer to use a drug store, it just really did not do anything for my lashes other than coat them black. There was no length or volume added which you would expect for that price point.

This is probably my favorite mascara to date. I can use this and not need to wear lashes! My lashes aren't the longest, but this gives me the illusion that I have long lashes. It doesn't clump, has a nice wand and you get a lot for your money.

Best mascara I've ever used.  Gets every lash, not heavy and my lashes are not weighed down by product.  Easy to use, brush is fabulous.  My lashes tend to be straight and this mascara lets them keep the curl.  Customer for life.

Absolutely LOVE this mascara, my new favorite and I have tried Lancome, EA, Clinique, Avon and Mary Kay as well as drugstore brands. Does not flake, great brush and lasts all day.

This stuff was awesome when I first purchased it. It did dry out way faster than I expected. Luckily, that's an easy fix with a few drops and saline and a few pumps of the wand. Wish I didn't have to do that so soon with this mascara though.

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