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

My all time favorite mascara right now. I received this as a 500 point perk from Sephora along with an eyeliner and a eyeshadow primer. It was really a great deal because this mascara was full size!!! I was skeptical. But I love how it makes my lashes look longer and separate. The only issue I had is that it is a really wet formula and had to be careful applying it as to not get it all over my face makeup.

This was my first high end mascara and it finally convinced me that a $22 mascara could be better than a $8 one. The formula is awesome- it thickly coats lashes without clumping them together and lengthens at the same time. My only gripe is that it flakes a little by the afternoon, but that's worth it for how bold it makes my lashes look. Also, the tube is huge and will last at least six months

This is my all-time favorite mascara, and I’m on my third tube and I don’t expect that to last very long. I use this every other time that I do my make up, which is why I go through it so fast. It’s worth every penny that you spend on it, and I really love the packaging and how futuristic it looks. It doesn’t dry or flake, and I’ve gotten a lot of compliments from coworkers on my lush lashes.

Urban Decay actually sent me a sample of this mascara when it first launched. While it's not my all time favorite mascara, it's definitely a good one. Makes your lashes look nice & long but not clumpy at all. I never have any issues with it flaking off throughout the day either. Put it on first thing in the morning & your lashes will still look good at the end of the day.

I went through two tubes of this specific UD mascara. At first, I loved it. It made my lashes look fuller and more dramatic. But after a while, it lost its luster for me. One thing I love in a mascara is defining/seperating, and I felt like this just didn't do that for me. My lashes kind of stuck together too much or the application was too textured. I hadn't really used non-UD mascaras for years through college, but at some point, I decided to try something else, and I found I really love mascaras that have that dramatic effect and separates lashes super well such as  tarte Tarteist™ Lash Paint MascaraClinique Chubby Lash™ Fattening Mascara , or  CHANEL Le Volume De Chanel Mascara . I've not felt the need to re-visit a UD mascara since.

For all of my life I have worn brown mascara and felt like Black was too much. A few weeks ago I had a UD makeover, and they gave me tips and tricks that made this a usable color for me. Because of my complexion, I use a brown liner with this mascara and I get fabulous results. I have tried all types of mascara, drug store, mid, and UD. UD is worth the extra price. Hands down.

I have been using this mascara for aprox. 1 year now. I curl my lashes and then apply one coat of this, I don't like a natural look and this gives enough coating to my lashes that lengthens and thickens without clogging. The only issue I have is that it does only last 2 months or so before clumps form around the top/lid of the mascara and it seems to get very messy, dries out and need replacing, and I know mascaras should be replaced every 3 months anyway but at 22$ I would prefer it either to last a little longer or for the cost to be around 17$

This mascara is awesome!! I usually use my Clinique High Impact™ Mascara to smooth out the mascara on my eyelashes because sometimes it can get kinda clumpy. However, the mascara is very dark and has great coverage on my lashes! I have bought this before and I will but it again!

This was one of the first Urban Decay mascaras I ever purchased... and MAN does Urban Decay sure know how to make a great mascara!! This doesn’t flake (EVEN IF I PICK AT IT). My eyelashes are naturally pretty long and I have a problem with a lot of mascaras transferring to my upper eyelid but GUESS WHAT?!? NOT this mascara 😊 I’ve repurchased this one MULTIPLE time!!

This mascara has a drier formula which holds up the curl but doesn't give much length or volume with only one coat. However they're definitely buildable with multiple coats. You get more of a dramatic look with this instead of clean and defined lashes. Doesn't flake and lasts all day!

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