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 think this mascara is the closest to a HG that I've found. The formula is thick, but not clumpy, and wet, but not sticky.

It does a great job of both giving length and filling in volume.

You can do a number of coats to build up the look before it even starts to look heavy.

I wish my curl would hold a bit longer with this one but I'll take it because the benefits of a nice, easy-to-layer, non-running-down-your-face mascara is hard to find.

Also comes off nicely at the end of the day.

This is hands down one the of blackest, most dramatic mascaras I have come across. I would not buy it again just because I like a more firm brush that can really grab my eyelashes for optimal length. It is great for class, work, or just going out in public. But if you're an eyelash freak like I am, you want the longest lashes possible at all times. I loved this mascara, just not as much as I have loved others.

Love what this does for my lashes. However, my contacts don't seem to be so happy with it. I have no idea why. I'm a girl who has allergies. SO - there must be something in here that gets to me. But, yes girl - if your eyes are sensitive - they will look like you just stepped onto a hollywood set with this one. It is a little bit wetter of a formula than I'm used too, and I usually prefer h20 proof. Only problems with it. :)

I live this product cause it gives it so much volume to my lashes and makes them look so great.
I like how it doesn't get all lumpy and makes it look like a cheap product.
An ok quality.

I love it! They promise bigger, blacker, badder lashes. This made me chuckle a little bit. But, boy does it deliver. Intense black. Creamy formula, but not thick so it doesn't clump. It applies really well with the full, standard bristle brush. I haven't had any fallout or smudging. My lashes look soo long and they stay curled. The intensity of the black is amazing. I love it! And its cool that the tube is really pretty too.

I want to love this mascara more! The application is very smooth and easy, and immediately after applying it looks great. This isn't those who seek any kind of major curling effect, but good for a simple mascara look. Fast forward a few hours later, and unfortunately this smudges a lot. It never fails to smudge along the bottom lash line, and I'm lucky if I can get away with minimal smudging above the lashes. I'm never one to be too much of a stickler with my mascara, and thankfully I just got this in a sample size. I would not purchase this again.

Got this mascara as a sample from Sephora and fell in love with it from the first use. Makes my lashes look long and bold without giving them that "spider legs" effect. Lasts all day and easy to wash away. Not sure if it comes in waterproof but the non waterproof version comes right off when you wash it. Love that I was able to try it without having to buy right away but now I absolutely will be purchasing it

I got the deluxe sample of this in my ipsy bag a couple months ago and as soon as I ran out of the little one I ran out and bought the full size. This is my all time favorite mascara I've ever used. It makes my lashes look thick and full without looking clumpy and it also is great on my bottom lashes. I don't even need fake lashes anymore because this gives me the same results! I love it and I will definitely be repurchasing.

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