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 is a pretty dry formula and you absolutely will need two coats. Didn't do much as far as volume or length is concerned. Didn't do much of anything good for my lashes.

This is a hit or miss sometimes! I usually like how it leaves my lashes but some days it leaves them clumpy and hate a clumped up look! I got min for 50% off Ulta had a sale!

If you have oily eyelids I do NOT recommend this, the mascara its self along with the primer is a very wet formula. However if you don't mind this it is DEFINITELY worth purchasing.
I actually prefer rubber brushes with smaller bristles, this brush is very large and fluffy - very natural feeling... but I find myself reaching for this stuff almost every time I apply makeup now. Its just so light and airy feeling.
One major selling point to this mascara is how black it is - it's one of the blackest I've ever came across.
As for the primer it is unlike any other primer I've used - it's NOT hard drying and extremely tacky like many, especially drugstore ones. It's very light and easy to move - it dries a little bit clearer which also makes it very easy to completely cover on the lashes.

The mascara alone is a 10, with the primer it's a deadly combo.

One of my favorite mascaras. They last a long time and make my eyelashes longer and separates them. Very good mascara. Repeat customer here :) I do recommend this product.

Great mascara....Makes lashes super voluminous and lengthy...But the biggest issue is product dries up too soon and starts accumulating around the opening of the tube/jar!

I absolutely love this product! I picked up the small one at sephora and had to go back to get the regular size. It doesn't irritate my eyes or crumble off when I wear it.

I have repurchased this a couple times now.
I Like the thickness of the mascara but it's not to clumpy like some. It gives my lashes the smooth coat that I need without looking like spider eyes!

I received a sample of this from Sephora and it is one of my favorites! It adds a ton of length, and volumizes well too. I like how it is a "wet" mascara but doesn't stick to my contact lenses - huge bonus for me. I highly recommend!

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