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 will give you a lot of volume, but does not layer well. This needs to be applied with one coat only, otherwise it will flake over the course of the day. The shade of black is also a nice, deep, true black.

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!

I was in the market for a new mascara and went to sephora looking for one. I was trying to decide between Benefit's They're Real and UD's Perversion but decided on Perversion because my friend told me that she uses They're Real and it makes her eyelashes look natural. I wasn't going for "natural" looking eyelashes because mine are ALREADY naturally long and curly. so I wanted something that would make them look a little like false lashes. Perversion is great because it coats every lash really well and really fans them out to make them look almost full like an actual pair of false lashes. I would say it's pigmented and this a great product!

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

OH MY GOD. Before I found this mascara, I had never rebought any other formula. It is AMAZING. Super volumizing and separates your lashes. It wouldn't be good for someone who likes the feather effect, because it is a more, "wet," formula. However, it's the best volumizer I've tried.

I love a lot of mascaras but this is one of my favorites to build with when I'm not putting false lashes on it really can make your lashes long dark and thick without clumping and caking up

No false lashes needed! I use this on a dsily basis for what feels like an eternity now. The amount of product you get is amazing, it is buildable and gives a lot of volume without making your lashes stick together!

The perversion eyeliner is my favorite black eyeliner on the market so I knew I had to try the mascara and dang, I am so happy I did because this stuff is amazing.

This mascara is truly black. It applies smoothly and dies quickly so it doesn't smudge against my face or glasses. It's buildable without getting clumpy and the brush is on the bigger side but does an amazing job at grabbing even the smallest hairs.

This is my new favorite mascara and is going to be replacing all my others because it's that great.

This year for Valentine's Day, I told my parents that the only thing I needed to make my life complete was another tube of this mascara. Any day I need some flair, I reach for this tube.

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