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 is hands down my most favorite mascara that I've ever used. Also, it's probably one of the mire expensive mascaras that ive used before. It lasts all day and doesn't leave black smudges around my eyes at the end of the day either. Only 4 stars though because it's a little bit hard to wash off.

This mascara is legit. It takes your lashes to a whole new level. It was easy to apply for dramatic results but can still be pretty effective for day time use and simple make up. My only thing about this is you MUST use a mascara remover to get it off. It held on like it was falling off of a cliff. Long lasting for days if you did not clean it off.

This mascara was really good, but I'm not sure it's completely worth the money. It's a bit pricey for what you get. It is also a wet formula mascara, so if that's not your thing, this wouldn't work well for you. I find it was buildable but it also smudged on me. Overall I may purchase again in the future, but not right away.

This mascara is great. I used this for about a year along with Subversion. It was long lasting but too expensive. The packaging was pretty, but again not worth the money. I stopped purchasing and started using drug store mascara again as they work just as good if not better for a fourth of the price.

I love this mascara it gives good color and definition to my lashes. Its in a nice sleek black shiny tube which makes it easy to distinguish. Its easy to find in most make up stores Ulta/Sephora in both mini and full sizes ( I get the mini). It lasts for a night out but be warned its not waterproof.

This has always been one of my favorite mascaras to use. usually ill layer this on top of another mascara to have it more black. the volume it gives my lashes as well makes it a classic staple to my makeup bag. I like the sample sizes more so it doesn't come out too wet and stick my lashes together.

This mascara makes my lashes the blackest black I've ever seen. It works really well to separate and add length and it doesn't clump at all, though it doesn't do much for volume and it can smudge a little bit when you're first putting it on. Overall, it's a solid product, but I have drugstore buys I like better.

I love this mascara for so many reasons. First, the applicator is really easy to use and minimizes smudging. Even though it isn't waterproof, it doesn't rub off all that easily when I sweat or throughout the day. It makes my lashes look naturally long and full. One of my favorite mascaras I've ever used!

I love this mascara. It's all I buy now. For years I tried many different brands trying to achieve a look I liked. I found it in urban decay, I get nice thick full lashes. It adds the perfect amount of length to my lashes as well and while I don't think it's waterproof it doesn't run in humidity or rain. I highly recommend this mascara.

If you're looking for a lengthening mascara, this is the one for you. It does it's job well, but doesn't add crazy volume like some others (looking at you TooFaced Better Than Sex). It does curl my lashes nicely though, and I don't use an eyelash curler when I apply this one. Will definitely repurchase, and always look for ways to snag the sample size!
