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

Terrible terrible terrible. Spider lashes galore! Bought for Sephora due to all the hype. Formula sticks lashes together and the brush doesn't help much. I tried many many times to get this to work with my lashes but no luck. Will not repurchase

I received a travel sized sample of the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara from Ulta with my online purchase. I'm extremely picky when it comes to mascara and was on the hunt for one that had a big brush and wouldn't smudge. I'm so glad I picked this out as my sample because I have absolutely fallen in love! It's got a big fluffy brush and makes my lashes look so full and long that people ask me if I'm wearing false lashes! It's the absolute best and I don't see myself using any other brand any time soon.

This mascara is my go to. I cannot believe how soft the brush is, but it is so easy to apply coats of mascara. I've had no issues with flaking or it wearing off. I literally want to trash all my other mascaras (a little too frugal for that, however).

The only downside to this mascara is that it's not waterproof. Other than that, it's amazing! I get asked all the time if I'm wearing falsies! Nope! Just my awesome urban decay mascara! It makes my lashes look so full and plump!! I'll never stop using this!

It’s a nice mascara. I find that it makes your lashes look pretty. It makes my lashes look beautiful and it doesn’t look clumpy. Packaging is nice. Price is a little high. I will probably stick to better than sex mascara but I still may repurchase

Let me start this review by saying that I am not a mascara fanatic by any means- for me, just about anything will do. I purchased this mascara thinking it might change that after all the good things I had heard about it from the other girls I work with. Sadly, that was not the case. I decided to wear it to work the next day and while I applying it, I found that I really liked the shape and feel of the brush. After applying, I loved the look of my lashes, they looked really full and volumized and the length it gave my lashes was spectacular. Unfortunately, later on in the day while I was at work, I ended up seeing myself in a mirror and felt really embarrassed. I hadn't gotten any smudges on my eyelids when I applied the mascara, but now, after hours of wearing it, I saw MAJOR smudging under my brow and along my lower lash line AND little mascara flakes around my eyes. It was HORRIBLE. I returned it the next day. This is one mascara that I absolutely hate and will probably never repurchase again after this experience. There's definitely better mascaras out there and for a better price!

Not a fan Of this mascara. Seems to always clump up on my lashes and I don't ever like the way the look. I think it may be a problem with how the applicator collects product, but I'm not sure. Wasn't a fan and I wouldn't buy again.

My holy grail mascara next to the "They're Real" by Benefit. I really love this mascara a lot. I like the brush and the formula. The packaging is pretty. It cost $22 for the full size. There is a travel size you can buy for $10. But why not buy the full size? It lengthens my lashes and curls my lashes. It doesn't flake nor leave my lashes clumpy. I put about 5 coats for a good pop of lashes and there would be no clump as all! I can get to my bottom lashes too with this mascara! I really love the formula, it's not too wet, or too creamy. It's the perfect mascara consistency. I really believe this is close to the Maybelline Colossal mascara. It's identical in a way, but the Maybelline mascara's formula is more creamier than the Perversion. But I like the Perversion mascara best than the Colossal.

I use this mascara almost daily. It's not as clumpy as most mascaras. I have brown eyes and this mascara makes my lashes look full and thick. Keep in mind that this mascara is not waterproof but it does have a long lasting effect.

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