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."

  • "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

The urban decay perversion mascara is one of my favorites. I purchased this product at Ulta and truly love it. It is among my top five favorite mascaras of all time. Definitely recommend this to everyone.

Not my favorite mascara. Gives great length, however does not add any curl or fullness to my lashes. It also transfers badly onto my lid and underneath my eyes. Would not purchase again.

Got a travel size of this mascara and loved it so much I went out and bought a full size even though my travel one wasn't empty yet! Really shows the length and volume of my lashes! Love it!

I really like how dark and shiny this mascara is, and the brush is really nice. It's full, and grabs the lashes nicely to make them long and full. The only thing I don't like is that it does smudge under my eyes a little bit after a while.

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.

I am absolutely in love with this mascara. It's the one I reach for when I don't want to wear falsies. The brush is a dream in my opinion. It's perfect for everyday use or you can really build it up to a more intense nighttime look

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!

This was one of my favorite mascaras before the Better Than Sex mascara discovery. It's great and I love the brush/application. I think it would work for most eye colors, but again, for the price I would rather get the BTS mascara as they are similar in price.

I've never purchased this mascara in a full size, I've only used the deluxe sizes that have come with other products or as a free sample. I've used it many items and it seems like every time for me it can be abbot clumpy and I have to go through my lashes with another spooly to get out all the clumps and separate the lashes.

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