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

This mascara really makes my lashes pop. It lengthens in 1 coat and there is no flaking. The packaging is okay but not stunning like many of urban decays products. I would recommend to anyone who wants longer lashes

I actually love this mascara! The wand is a perfect size not to big and not too small. It not only adds volume but also makes your lashes look full. It's pretty long lasting but comes off easily with makeup remover.

I like it because it adds tons of product to my lashes. Intensifies the shade and length. It came with one of my urban decay pallets and I haven't stopped using it.

I like this mascara, not love it. I like dramatic lashes. This will define your lashes though for a more subtle look if that's what you like. It's a good formula though, stays on long without melting off or dripping.

At first I hated this mascara. I hated the wet formula and the stupid wand. However after about a month the formula started to dry out a little bit and it works much better now. It separates and volumizes very nicely

?? I don't know how I feel about this. I received a sample in my ipsy bag...tried it & very meh at first. It would separate my lashes TOO much and make them look skinny and thinner. I didn't want to add too many coats because then I feared they would be clumpy and separated too much and that looks horrible. Anyways, I continued to use it for a few weeks and then I LOVED it. It worked perfectly at that time maybe because it dried out a little? The formula was awesome at the time, so I purchased the full size. I have had it for a couple weeks and it is still not doing it for me, just like before. Should I let this stuff dry out a little again? I don't know how I feel about it. I want to love it like I did the sample, especially for the price I paid for it.

Edit: If I blow on this a little... to I guess...dry it out? It seems to be a little thicker and not so separating. It is definitely dark and makes my lashes pretty bold. They aren't so thin and separated anymore. I don't want my lashes to ever be clumpy, and I guess this is a good middle ground. The price is still pretty steep, however. Changed to 4 stars.

Never goes on clumpy. I love the soft brush. Makes my lashes super long. I do use a second drug store brand to follow through on because the brush separates my lashes a little better.

I absolutely love this mascara. It creates tons of volume to your eyelashes with no clumps and is not flakey at all. The volume will also last all day long, especially if you apply two coats of it before heading out!

This was the first mascara I ever used from urban decay and I can say I love it. It is a really nice formula that stays on my lashes all day. I really like the larger brush as it allows me to coat more of my lashes.

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