Product Description

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
  • "This mascara was a sample in the June 2014 ipsy glam bag. It's perfection. Thickening without clumping! " in 307 reviews
  • "I received this as a sample and it was amazing this is my new go to mascara it doesn't clump and is long lasting it elongates my lashes and i could ask for more in a mascara " in 283 reviews
I love the perversion 24hour eyeliner on the daily. And I also love this mascara. But only use it on a night out. It's a little to much for me to wear on the daily.

THE BEST MASCARA I HAVE EVER USED. Yes, it deserves all caps. I already have long lashes, but this mascara makes them infinitely better. Doesn't clump, gives lots of volume, and lengthens really well. I do see that it sometimes will smudge off a TINY bit by the end of the day, but it's very, very minimal (and putting on a makeup setter eliminates this from occurring). Every other mascara I've bought can't even compare to this.

This is my absolute favorite mascara EVER. For years I had only used drugstore products, my favorite drugstore brand is still Maybelline. I had received a sample of this mascara when I had purchased their Naked Smokey palette. I instantly fell in love. Nothing compares. I almost hate that it works so well, because now I definitely notice the faults in the cheaper brands.

This is a very beautifully black mascara. I love the wand as it is soft and flexible. I feel like this does a great job making lashes look thicker. The only drawback I would say is the formula is slightly thin to the point it will transfer if I wear it on my bottom lashes. I still mess with it because I like the look it gives, but longevity would be a drawback.

My sister got this for me for Christmas last year and i just ran out of last month! It lasts a long time and for a great price! If you were to by something cheaper, you would still be paying the same amount because you would run out of it quicker. It stays on the whole day with no fall. It doesn't clump up and goes on smoothly. Perversion is the best mascara out there. It is my go-to and I can't wait to get a new tube!

I just received a sample of this in the August Sephora Play box. Its a phenomenal product. I'm having a difficult time using my other mascaras because I want to keep going back to this. It brings volume and thickness without being clumpy. It makes my eyelashes look insane and gives them a bit of a falsie look. This will be the worth the money. #mycultclassics

When I tried this the first time I used the tester size and loved it, I rushed to the store and bought the full size right away. The brush is large and makes the lashes appear long and thick, without looking like too much. However, I did find that after a few weeks the mascara became clumpy and didn't go on as it did in the beginning. For the price it's a good mascara, however I prefer the Benefit 'their real' line. i'm a huge fan of Urban decay however, I was underwhelmed by the product.

I'm such a mascara junkie, and the fact that I've bought this one 3 times over is saying a lot. This stays put and makes my lashes really full. It even adds some curl which is nice, since my lashes are a little straight. I could not recommend this product enough. I'd argue that it is comparable to Dior Show Blackout, just a little cheaper. Urban Decay, you will always have me hooked!

Absolutely LOVE this mascara. I'm not a big fan of the chunky eyelash look, so this was a perfect match for me. I use this while I'm at work. and I can say that for 12-13hrs, this did not smudge at all. Long-lasting and great volume, I would highly recommend. I know the price is up there, but given the quality and how often I use it, I would purchase again.

The color is spot on for a black, inky and rich. I get quite a bit of length and a decent amount of volume with this mascara. I have very sparse lashes and there lies the problem for me. With the thickness of the product and wand, I end up with mascara on my lid, which is a huge annoyance! However, I still like the product and continue to use it. I would recommend it

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