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

Let me begin by stating that I am extremely difficult to please when it comes to mascaras. Most mascaras smudge like crazy on me, including this one. I have hooded eyes and this just doesn't work for me. The mascara formula is too wet for me personally. I like the brush but everytime I try to use this I mess up my eye makeup with smudges! I tried wiping excess product off the brush and then applying but that still did not work. I love UD, but this one is a miss for me.

I just recently purchased this so I can't really give my full opinion on it. I do really like it so far, I enjoyed how it makes my lashes look so full & long! The only one thing I have noticed is after some hours of wearing it, I seem to find that under my eyes have quite a bit of black flakes underneath. It could be because I've been using this along with the lash primer! I'm going to try it without & see. Otherwise, I really like the mascara!!

Yes, queen. Yes, queen. I have short lashes and don't use fake lashes because I'm not great at putting them on. That being said, I rely heavily on mascara for that extra sultry oomph. I've used Benefit and Dior in the past. Loved them both but when one of my best friends recommended this to me, I became a believer and just love it. The bristles are a medium 'fat' and is not as sharp compared to other applicators. It doesn't clump inside the bottle nor my lashes. I highly recommend it to my fellow short eyelash sisters.

I first received this mascara as a free gift from ulta during my birthday month. However I loved it and had to go back to get the full size of it! Super easy to apply and little to no clumping. Currently my favorite one right now

I am absolutely in LOVE with this mascara. I got it during one of Sephora's events where if you buy something from the Urban Decay line you would get the free mascara with your purchase. It has been by far the best mascara I've ever used personally. Before I would use a couple of mascara's so I could reach the volume I desired and now just a couple of swipes with this mascara and no need for me to combine other mascaras. I finished the sample and bought the full size version and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

I'm so in love with the way it makes my lashes so much darker and full. I love it, seriously. The brush is perfect and the formula is amazing too. Makes my lashes stay curled all day. The only thing I'm not happy about is that my eyes are very watery and this is not waterproof. But it's not a problem for me. I love it so much and I'm in my second one right now.

recieved a sample size in one of my monthly beauty boxes & from the 1st time I used it, i fell in love! The wand is big & fat with tons of bristles to coat every last lash, root to tip. It leaves your lashes super volumized & thick without clumping. It gives them this gorgeous intensity that lasts all day without running or flaking. It does wash off easily with makeup remover but even though not waterproof, it did withstand getting caught in the rain more than once. highly recommend

This is absolutely my favorite mascara out there right now. It doesn't smudge or flake or give me raccoon eyes at the end of a hot day. I'm also a contact lense wearer, so these qualities are crucial in a good mascara. I was impressed out how long and full my lashes are with this product. Similar look but without the clumpiness of a fiber lash product. It is a little more expensive than what I would usually spend on mascara, but totally worth it.

This mascara was not good for my lashes. It didn't give my lashes any length or volume it just made them darker. I would not buy this again and I regret purchasing. Save your money and buy something like the L'Oreal lash paradise.

I got this as a free sample from Ulta for my birthday a couple years ago. Since then, this has become my favorite mascara! It makes my lashes so long without being clumpy.

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