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

Absolutely love this mascara! It is one of my favorites. I love to use it with the urban decay primer for a more lengthy, voluminous lash. I like the brush design it makes it easy to apply the mascara and gets all of your lashes evenly. I defiantly recommend trying this if you need a good mascara that doesn’t flake. It also comes in a cute trail size I like to keep in my purse for emergencies. I normally wear one to two coats with the primer depending how full or long I want my lashes.

First off, I love the brush on this mascara. I'm all about a larger brush, and this one behaves so well. It deposits mascara evenly on my lashes and not at all on my eyelids. Also, the color really is as richly black as described. And finally, here's a mascara that you can open and love immediately without having to wait a week for it to dry out some (that is, if you prefer drier formulas like I do). After one coat, I could tell that Perversion definitely added length, and I love how rich the black color is. However, I didn't notice too much in the way of volume increase.

Urban Decay IS one of my favorite brands ever! This mascara is the only mascara I use and have always gone back to. No other mascara compares! It lasts so long! It is super black and pigmented and does NOT flake no matter how long you've had it on for (even if you pass it with it on...lol) I look like I have absolutely no lashes, but once I apply this (Even with one coat) it looks like I have falsies on! It is definitely buildable as well and never gets clumpy!(the first and only mascara to ever have that kind of power!) I bring this everywhere and have bought probably a good ten so far!

I received this as a sample in an ipsy bag. The packaging is so sleek and beautiful! I was really excited to try this mascara. I like the wand... It's kind of small so it's perfect for my bottom lashes... And oh boy does this give my lashes some major length! It is a little lacking in the volume department, though. Unfortunately it does dry up pretty quickly so you'd have to replace it a lot but I really do like it for my bottom lashes.

I'm still not sure how to feel about this mascara. I received a sample of this from my mother,and I had things that I loved from it,and things that I didn't. I liked that it made my lashes look long,though I didn't like that it didn't give me the volume that I had originally hoped for. And maybe it was because it was a sample size,but it was pretty clumpy and would take me a few minutes to brush out,which I'm really not into. But,again,on the plus side,it didn't flake or smear,even when I wore it for 12 hours,and it had a nice,opaque black color. All in all,I would likely repurchase down the line to try again,and I think it was pretty nice. Not my favorite,but definitely nice.

I think this mascara has an EXTREMELY wet formula!
It applied nicely, gave me some length(not that much volume.) It was not clumpy.

However, when I checked up on the mirror 2 hours later, I had actual mascara on the lower lids!! (not the usual smudge). I think it’s from just blinking. It stays wet for a long time. I didn’t wear this mascara for my lower lashes.
I’ve tried a lot of mascaras, but this never happened to me before...

I bought a travel size/mini to try this out and I was blown away! It's quickly become one of my favorites. It's wand is perfect for getting close to the lash line and provides volume and extreme length. It separates beautifully. It has a liquid-y formula and it gets better with use. I've had my mini for close to 3 months and it's going strong (but I will replace for sanitary purposes). It's an Awesome mascara!

This product, on its own, made my lashes extremely clumpy and didn’t give them any sort of length whatsoever. I did realize that if you use it over the top of another mascara that’s focused on length, it works very well. Personally, I want one mascara to have everything that I want and I wouldn’t want to settle for using two. Maybe it works for some, but I did not find it worth the hype or the money.

My all time favorite mascara right now. I received this as a 500 point perk from Sephora along with an eyeliner and a eyeshadow primer. It was really a great deal because this mascara was full size!!! I was skeptical. But I love how it makes my lashes look longer and separate. The only issue I had is that it is a really wet formula and had to be careful applying it as to not get it all over my face makeup.

This was my first high end mascara and it finally convinced me that a $22 mascara could be better than a $8 one. The formula is awesome- it thickly coats lashes without clumping them together and lengthens at the same time. My only gripe is that it flakes a little by the afternoon, but that's worth it for how bold it makes my lashes look. Also, the tube is huge and will last at least six months

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