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."

  • "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 received a free sample of this when it first came out. very black in color which I love, it doesn't clump which is also great but let me tell you- you better be ready to wear that look for three days because it is nearly impossible to get off! I used baby soap and water, makeup remover, soaking my eyes, this stuff just wanted to stick. make your own mind up on whether that is a good or bad thing but I try to reach for another mascara when I can so I don't end up with raccoon eyes for days

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.

If I was ever going to pick a high-end mascara out of all the popular ones I've seen in Sephora these days, Perversion would be in my top 3. This baby volumizes like no other, lengthens and gives you that sultry, smudgy in a good way and sexy lash look. I'm with others on wishing there was a waterproof version, but this mascara is definitely worth the price. If only I could afford it since my travel size has run out.

It's difficult for me to find a mascara that I like... I like them to be lengthening and volumizing and have good staying power without smudging. I also really like them to be very dark black. This one lives up to most of my expectations. It wasn't as lengthening as I had hoped but all around good product.

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.

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.

I absolutely adore this mascara! I have gone through two tubes and have a backup waiting for me! It is a very black, kind of wet formula, easy to build, doesn't flake, or smudge. This holds my curl and doesn't leave my lashes feeling heavy or make my eyes itch! I can wear this on light makeup days or build it up and get lashes that look like I'm wearing falsies. When I first worse this my husband asked me it I had on fake eyelashes! This is my holy grail 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!

Absolutely my favorite mascara. The formula is really a dark black but it goes on thin so its not clumpy it looks natural but with that extra edge. Definitely worth the price and the raveing. Urban decay is such an awesome company with such great products and this is my favorite I've tried so far.

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.

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