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

Ohhhh dear no. This was SO disappointing to me since I'm generally an UD fanatic but HOLY SMUDGEY MESS I have oily skin and eyelids and this got everywhereee and took forever to dry after application which made matters worse. Theoughout the day I continued to wipe away new smudges under my eyes and on my eyelids. THEN after my chiropractors appointment the doc looked at me in horror and said "you need a mirror" yep I looked like a gothic clown this stuff went rogue all over the place. Even after wiping the best I could without available makeup remover it left like gray stains behind. When I got hime there was nothing left on my lashes to even take off!!! Such a disaster....maybe the waterproof formula is better? But I'm not even willing to give it a chance!

I received a couple samples of this mascara and fell in love! It has a natural bristle wand which i prefer and the formula is wet which is another mascara feature i look for. It doesn't flake on my face and is super blak.

This is a high quality mascara. It isn't my go-to, but it does have a beautiful pigment and last all day. I'd be more likely to use it if the brush were different. For me, it didn't feel like a quality brush.

I love this mascara! My only complaint is it sometimes transfers to my under eye. I have green eyes and the dark color is very suiting. I love the formula, and how smoothly it applies and makes my lashes look.

I loved the length that Urban Decay's Perversion gave my lashes, but every day when I would remove the mascara, it didn't want to come off. Instead, I ended up losing a lot of eyelashes in the removal process.

I've tried many mascaras but urban decay is one of my absolute favorites. It's not clumpy and a tube lasts months without drying out and clumping up. I only wish it would pump your lashes up just a lil bit bigger, otherwise I'd give it 5 stars!

This mascara always seemed to smudge and run down my eyes. I feel like a hot mess when wearing this because it smudges so much. Maybe I got a bad one? I got it in an ipsy box a couple years ago. Won't buy again.

I really like.this mascara. I got a sample of it and I like the formula as well as the application. It applies without clumping and gives volume to the lashes. It does nk t clump off throughout the day either!

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