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 felt as though it was okay for the first couple of uses but it dried out very quickly. It tended to flake onto my face. I would not recommend it because of the overall quality of the product!

So far this is one of the best mascaras I have ever tried. I think that mascara is a ver personal opinion because lashes are different and everyone has a different perception of a perfect lash. It is very long lasting, does not smear and it doesn't clump up. It volumizes amazingly. I would invest in this product. It is totally worth the moey

I've been on the hunt for the perfect mascara for years! I want voluminous lashes every day without the hassle of curling and applying false lashes! A few months ago, I received this mascara in my Ipsy bag, and I fell in like. It made my lashes look full and long; my lashes were close to what I had always hoped they would be. The only complaint I have with this mascara is that it runs. I wear it nearly every day, and it stays in place for a few hours before it begins to gather underneath my eyes. I have oily lids and such, so that may be the problem.

The first time I tried this mascara it goes on perfectly I mean like a mascara dream in Heaven, 2 months later the mascara applies EXACTLY as clean and flawless and picture perfect the 100th time I have used it!
I have tried other brands even Better Than Sex, IT Cosmetics, and none of them compare to Perversion. It has a wow factor and it goes on without clumps and it stays put. It isn't waterproof which I dont mind But it stays put. Do yourself a favor and try this mascara!

This is the first higher end mascara I've ever used and it is on the pricier side but I think it is worth every penny. I use it every day and it's been lasting me a while. What sets it apart for me is that it is thick and creamy not watery. This really coats each lash smoothly and lifts up the lash into position. This formula is also very soft when it dries, instead of becoming flakey and dry. It seems to be very flexible and resistant to oily skin, such as my own. The wand also doesn't look like much but is very effective at applying smoothly.

My lashes are not long and they are not dark, without this product, I would look like I had no lashes at all. I received a mini version of this mascara in a small naked combination pallet. When I ran out, (which was almost a year later) I bought a full size version. I would highly recommend this product, now that I've found it, I'm never going back to my old stuff. Price is right and makes my eyes pop!

One of the most pigmented mascara I've ever used! It doesn't clump up your lashes when building up the products, and it doesn't feel heavy on the eyes at all. One thing i wish i was different was the wand itself because while it does fan out the lashes beautifully, i feel like if the wand were different, it would give such a better effect!

This mascara is OK but it is not anything to write home about. I have used this product a lot but I really think there is a lot of room for improvement because this is a more expensive mascara and it just doesn't do it for me. I have drugstore mascaras that are absolutely amazing and surpass this mascara by a mile for a quarter of the price!

BEST VOLUMIZING MASCARA. I LOVE THIS brand and product. I use this product every day. I originally received it as a gift in Sephora's lash stash box a couple years ago,but I still have it and use it almost everyday (after trying the other mascaras from the box). Probably one of my favorites overall from that box of Sephora mascara favorites.

This mascara makes my eyelashes look so full, they almost look like falsies! Although it's not as good as Too Faced "Better than Sex", it is a close second for me. Definitely one I would buy again!!!!

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