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

My new favorite mascara!! I was sceptical to spend $22 on a mascara because I usually buy covergirl but it's worth every penny! I've never had a mascara that went on so smooth and made my lashes look so long! It's also easy to remove off of your lashes at the end of the day. Two thumbs up!!

I love this brand and it is well worth the money you spend. You always get the best quality. I love this mascara it doesn't require multiple coats and it lasts for awhile. I'm super picky and like a good mascara and this one hits the mark. I like different mascaras for different occasions.

All time favorite mascara and I just discovered it recently. This mascara gives you so much volume and length with only like two coats! I never buy high end mascaras because I feel they are the same as drug store but when I got a sample of this and tried it out I immediately went to Ulta to get the full size to make sure I didn't run out! It doesn't flake what so ever and it's keep your lashes voluminous and long all day long!

This is my Holy Grail mascara. The brush really wraps around the lashes to give full coverage in one or two strokes. I also love the formula! I have even been asked if I was wearing falsies with this mascara on. It's also very build-able, so you can go from natural to dramatic very quickly.

My mom passed this mascara on to me because she didn't like it - I have the opposite opinion. Really like this mascara! She purchased it at ulta. I can wear this mascara without any eyeliner to work because it is so dark and creates volume. I would definitely purchase it again and recommend!

Yes! This mascara is one of the best! Definitely in my top 5! If you're looking for super full, long lashes... give this mascara a whirl, you won't be disappointed! I fully believe that mascara primers make a huge difference as well, try pairing it with Lancome Cils Booster, or Tarte's lash primer! 😊

My go to mascara! It is well worth the $22 price tag. I currently have 8 other mascaras in my makeup drawers, but nothing comes close to the big lashes I get from this product. The closest thing I have found is the Younique lash kit, but I don't exactly consider that an everyday mascara.

As someone who has somewhat short and thin eyelashes, I love this mascara. It makes my lashes look long and voluminous, which no mascara has ever achieved before. I try to save it for special occasions, as I only have the travel size, but I'll definitely purchase the full size when I run out.

So I've been using this mascara consistently for about two weeks now and I am loving it so far. Got it for free in a sample size and it's definitely a great way to try it out. The brush is wonderful, so full and fluffy, with super soft bristles. It's very easy to apply and get all your lashes coated evenly with just one swipe. I find that it lasts all day and gives me a ton of volume without clumping. Would repurchase this in full size once I run out of sample mascaras to try!

I received a free sample of this mascara in one of my monthly ipsy bags. It is hands down the best mascara out there. It's very dark, doesn't clump, and lasts all day long. I was apprehensive at first, the brush didn't look like it would prevent clumps, but let me tell you-it is AWESOME. I will never use another mascara. 10/10 recommend!!

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