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

The volume on this mascara is great! However it kind of smears later on throughout the day which was disappointing coming from urban decay. I was hoping this was going to be my new mascara but I was sadly disappointed!

I switched over from Too Faced's better than sex mascara to this and I honestly like it a lot better. It makes my eyelashes look great and doesn't flake all over my face while I wear it. I always restock with this one!

I was first introduced to this mascara through a product sample I received. At the time, my favorite mascara had been discontinued so I was on the hunt for a replacement. Now Urban Decay's Perversion Mascara is my go-to! The formula doesn't clump, it goes on smoothly, and smells great. I prefer not to wear false lashes and Perversion has been one of the only mascaras that has actually lengthened my lashes to the point of noticing. It's long lasting, but easy to wash off - the perfect eye makeup combination.

I am in love with this mascara! It is still my all time favorite and I have been on the hunt for a new one forever. It's pricey at over $20 but to me it is so worth it.

Another great one! The pigmentation in this color is a smoothing feeling one at application. I thought that it came at a normal price compared against other competitors. I would recommend for everyone to get this one.

I may be a little bias because I love all things I've tried by Urban Decay but I love this. I already have long eyelashes as it is and this mascara made them look even fuller and beautiful

I've had many problems with drugstore mascaras in the past where they just clump up really bad or the brush wasn't working for me so I gave this mascara a try. I really like how this product makes my eyelashes look with way less clumping and darker finish. There usually is a lot of product on the brush that wants to come out of the tube when putting the brush back in it, wasting product if I don't put it in without wiping the excess off before hand which is the reason for 4 stars. I don't have to worry about this mascara causing problems with clumping and it makes my eyes look bolder. I really like this product and I do recommend it to others.

I've tried many mascaras before and could never find one that I could 100% commit myself too until I received a sample size of perversion in one of my monthly Subs. It is my holy grail of mascaras this goes on easy it's dark enough that I don't have to apply many coats in order for it to show on my lashes it's also light enough that if I choose to do multiple coats it doesn't get clumpy & my lashes don't stick together it's long lasting I can go out all night & wake up the next day with my lashes still fully coated without any crumbs of mascara beneath my lashes. It's affordable about $20 a tube and if that's too much or your just not 100% sure they have the smaller sample sizes that are $10 and they last quite a while.

I LOOOOOVE this mascara! I typically use Upward lash by MAC, but this one is amazing. I will actually cocktail the two and my eyelashes look like falsies. This mascara alone makes my lashes look long and extra fluffy. I have sensitive eyes, and this doesn't irritate them at all either. It is such a pretty mascara!
