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

It feels really soft. It seperates my lashes and does not get clumpy. I wish it was a bit more waterproof because when my eyes watered while wearing it, it did run.

I am very picky about my mascara! I have decent length lashes but thinning out with age. I love this mascara, I use it daily! This goes on easily and I don't even have to curl my lashes first! Not clumpy. Full coverage for full, longer looking lashes! I highly recommend this mascara, go get some and see what I mean!!

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 liked this mascara but found that it felt really heavy on my lashes. Is great for making your lashed look full but as the day went on my lashes wouldn't stay curled.

This is my favorite mascara. It adds volume and lengthens. The packaging is sleek and when I bought the full sized at Sephora I received a travel one to take to go!

I am a big Urban Decay fan! The Perversion mascara is amazing!! It makes my lashes looked longer and thicker. Plus it lasts all day without smudging. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to lengthen their lashes!

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.

Definitely not my favorite mascara. I purchased from Sephora and I'm so disappointed. I feel like it smears so easily and made my lashes clump. Horrible to use with false lashes, there was mascara everywhere. I would not recommend.

Im in love with urban decay and i saw this mascara and had to try it. I got the sample size and loved it. I tried it out and my lashes looked fake! but in a good way. it didn't clump either? I'm a lifeguard and i had some on from the night before that i forgot to take off, i had to jump in and it didn't run at all! i could finally wear makeup to work! but it comes off so easy with my cucumber wipes from say yes to cucumbers. My favorite, and will be buying the full size soon

This is personally one of my favorite mascaras I've ever used, but it isn't the best. It will stay on all day for the most part, but it's prone to flaking and smudging as well. For example, if I take a nap, it'll be on my undereyes when I wake up. But besides that, it doesn't really flake or have any other bad qualities. However, I'm sure there's other mascaras out there that are cheaper and perform the same.

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