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

I got the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara as a gift from Ulta for my birthday. It was my first high end mascara, and it did not disappoint! It has a great color with a creamy look (some mascaras look dull to me), and applies nicely. It has lasting ability, and if I prime my eye lashes first, it won't budge all day.

My only hiccup with this product is the actual mascara wand. I prefer a finer wand as opposed to the more traditional wand. Honestly, the wand looked borderline cheap (maybe because it was a free sample version it had a cheaper wand). I remedied this by purchasing disposable mascara wands that are more of my preferred style.

Other than the wand, it's an A+++ product!

Are you someone looking for thicker, longer, and fuller lashes? Then this is definitely the mascara for you. I have tried multiple different mascaras and none of them did it for me, that is until I tried Perversion. For one it doesn't clump when you swipe it on your lashes and it's a smooth creamy formula that glides on smoothly. I highly recommend Urban Decay Perversion mascara to anyone who is looking for a full dramatic eye look.

I love this mascara! It goes on perfect and it doesn't transfer to the bottom lash area. It last all day with no flaking. Makes your lashes look amazingly long and lush.

I wanted to love this because I have some well respected makeup friends raving about it. I received a deluxe sample from Ulta and was excited to try it. It glided on my lashes beautifully. I loved the look I initially got using it, but by the day's end I looked like a raccoon. It's smudged and smeared on both the eyelids and under my eyes. Wash off was horrific. Even with eye makeup remover it was hard to get off. Not impressed.

Hands down my favorite mascara. When I first received this product, it was a sample. I tried it and didn't like it. It didn't seem to do anything more than my drug store brands. It was okay but nothing remarkable.

Then I sat it down. Didn't use it.

But then I tried it again. And fell in love! This product separated, plumped and lengthened my lashes. They looked amazing and full. I liked it so much, I purchased a full size and I am so happy!! My full size came with a sample primer and that is amazing too!!

This is my favorite purchase all year!!!

When I worked at Ulta id get compliments on my eyelashes. People thought I had individual lashes on my lower lashes. Nope, it was this mascara. I've been hooked since this first came out and would recommend it to customers who would come in at Ulta. It's SO BLACK, doesn't flake or irritate the eyes, the formula isn't too watery nor too thick, volumizes AND lengthens, and the brush is amazing. It doesn't clump up or give you spider lashes.

I never really cared for UD mascara because I was always using a different brand one. I got this as a present and I needed mascara. This made my lashes look so full and dramatic I love it. I end up getting the travel sized ones because mascaras end up drying up anyways by the time you need to change them out. I love this mascara and even better if you ise the subversion lash primer before it. One of my top 5 mascara choices.

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