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 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.

Love this mascara♥ It's so black and for me it adds a lot of volume. It's a dramatic mascara and you don't need a lot to build it up. I usually use tarte's blush beforehand for length, and then add this one for volume and intensity. I would purchase it again, and would recommend it to all my friends.

I've been hooked since the day I started using this. This product makes my lashes look super full and bold without being too over the time. I've been using this for almost 3 years now. I've tried other mascaras since then and nothing compares. My days are usually 9am-9pm and it doesn't wear off at all, even when I cry. Definitely worth the price tag.

I had high hopes for this mascara especially for the price. It definitely makes your lashes blacker and thicker but I need curl in my lashes and this one does not hold a curl at all. My lashes look longer but they're just straight with this mascara and who wants that? Not me. I'll never purchase again.

I love love love this mascara. I have short, straight lashes and Perversion makes my lashes look lush and full. Perversion not only lengthens and curls but makes my lashes look fuller without having to use false lashes. The color is a pure black and looks good with any make-up palette. As always with Urban Decay, the packaging and sleek and sexy.

Okay, this mascara is nice but a little clumpy for me. I love the bold look it gives, it's perfect for a smokey eye, but up close it is really clumpy and that's been turning me off from using it recently. The packaging is nice, it doesn't feel super cheap or anything, but i'm just not blown away.

This mascara was my ride or die for quite some time. I loved the volume it gave me and how black it was. However after a while I noticed it smudged on my lower lash line leaving me with raccoon eyes. It also flakes something fierce, flakey mascara and contacts do not mix! I occasionally use this mascara but only if I'm using another mascara with it.

I received this in a beauty subscription box and fell in love with it! It makes my lashes so much more thicker, longer, and noticeable. I was not blessed with nice eyelashes, but this mascara really helps! It also never smudged on me. I have even worn it to work, and I work inside and outside, and it still never budged even when it's hot outside.

I cannot oversell this mascara. It makes my lashes long, dark, and full, and the brush is perfect for preventing clumping. The formula is best when dried down a bit. The price is reasonable, and it goes on sale a couple of times a year at Sephora or Ulta. Would recommend, it comes in a travel size too!

This is my second favorite mascara in the world!! The formula is so great. It doesn't clump too much which is a huge plus and it's super volumizing. It's hard to find a mascara that is both volumizing AND lengthening without making your lashes look clumpy which is exactly what this mascara does. It's incredible.

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