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 is ok. Very black and not much flaking. I like the formula, it's a very wet one, but the wand is so big that's is not easy to get all your lashes without getting product on your lids

I've always been a fan of Urban Decay but I wasn't in love with this mascara. It helps give hold to the lashes (when curled) but gets clumpy and makes my lashes stick together some when blinking.

I really wanted to like this mascara because it did give some good volume, but it was just way too wet. Even after a couple months it still didn't dry out and it just became too difficult to use.

This mascara is a bit too dull for me. It doesn't help my lashes keep a curl at all. They straighten out and get way too clumpy. Not the best mascara for the price. Probably wouldn't buy it again. Wasn't really up my ally :)

I live how black this mascara is but it did flake off at the very end of the day but it didn't itch or cause any irritation so that's why I rated it at a four I have a hard time with mascara lol

I liked this but I didn't get the effect that I was looking for. It's super black and it doesn't smudge. I wouldn't repurchase because I'd didn't get the effect that I look for. I wouldn't recommend it

Ew! Just Ew. I'm very disappointed with this one. Urban decay is my go to with eyes but I cannot CANNOT stand this mascara! First, I spend about 5 minutes whipping excess product off the wand (aren't the tubes designed to do this for you?). Made the mistake of using it like normal the first time and BLACK WAS EVERYWHERE. Okay so after I get all the excess product off my lashes still clump together like none other. I have supper long lashes so I try my darndest to let this dry before I move my eyes at all. But still if I manage to leave the house without mascara on my face by 2 pm I will have black rings under my eyes, even after using setting spray! I don't even put the mascara on my bottom lashes. Just Ew.

It provides your lashes with more volume than most mascaras. Most mascaras make my eyelashes clump together but this one did not. It separated them and made them look like I had more than I did.

This is a nice creamy mascara, and the brush is natural bristles which I like. It stays on well and never flakes. I have sparse, thin lashes, though, so the large size of the brush makes it difficult to manage. I often use a brush from another brand.

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