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

Great deep black color nice and shiny almost never clumps up on me even when I'm doing a couple coats. Never dry or flaky and lasts though tears and watery eyes. I would definitely recommend this.

The volume, the length, the lack of little flakes! Oh my it’s amazing. I really do love this mascara, I haven’t had another do the things that this can do. And I have very fine lashes. Buy buy buy!

Good mascara. A little to oily for my preference. Color is beautiful but smudges. I received this as a gift. I prefer Smashbox mascara. It makes your eye lashes pOp! No I would not buy this again.

I heard amazing things about this mascara and was excited to try it, but was so disappointed. I don't know if I just got a bad one but it was so dry that it would flake into my eyes all day. Didn't make them that much longer, and seemed dried up after one use. I'll give it another try but right now I'm not impressed.

This product worked really well for me. The wand separates my lashes and the formula plumps them up perfectly. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good high end mascara. I give it an 8/10.

I love this mascara by Urban Decay!! It's the only one I buy and use. It doesn't get cakey or gross/sticky. Extremely easy to use, helps make my lashes more prominent and longer. I bought it at Ulta and would highly recommend it.

It's overrated. I have short lashes. This did almost nothing to lengthen or thicken them. There is also way too much mascara on the wand and if you do not want raccoon spider eyes. Update 12/26/15- I think my review was written when I did not have a better mascara routine. I now curl my lashes after combing them. I then use a primer. I prefer subversion then use the Nyx skinny mascara. I also have and eyelash comb with metal prongs that are close together to help separate and remove clumps. I find that since I've started doing this a lot more of the mascaras perform for me and that curling my eyelashes off enough to keep some lifted up which they were not there now longer because of that fact. I really do have a love-hate relationship with this mascara. I want to say it's my holy Grail but I cannot. The main issue is this while it looks gorgeous it transfers to the creases on my lids and under my eyes. Black smudgy under eyes are not cool.

Best high end mascara. Vey natural finish. Does not leave clumps or any unnatural looking. I bought it from Sephora. At first I got the small one with $10 and then bought the bigger one as I absolutely loved it. It is a little pricey but I would definitely recommend it.

This mascara is in my top 5 favorites. No clumping or spider looking lashes. The brush is a good size and easy to work with. Not waterproof which I love and easy to take off. Formula is wonderful.
