Product Description

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 my favorite Urban Decay mascara. I love how this mascara applies. Its not too dry and its not too watery. The only problem i have had with this mascara is that by the end of my work day i notice that it starts to run and i look like i have clumps of makeup in the corners of my eyes.

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.

I used to think that mid-range and high-end mascaras were overhyped and not worth the money. However I really can no longer say that, especially after trying this one. It builds up nicely on my lashes without becoming spidery and never smudges. It really is a great, dependable mascara and my go-to

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! 😊

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.

I received this product in my Sephora play box a few months ago and I immediately had to purchase it once it ran out. This product is easy to apply and use and provided a lot of volume. The pricing is of good value and it goes with a eyeliner pencil as well if you get it at Sephora or Ulta beauty. I will be purchasing again once I run out.

This mascara is very messy, and gives the clumpier appearance of bold, spidery lashes without going overboard with it. I see why this mascara is well loved, but I like to go for a more natural look so this isn't as much for my taste. It's long lasting and wears well and doesn't dry out quickly!

Love at first use. I love black mascara. I always have. I have light blue grey eyes and I find black makes them stand out. I saw it on the UD website and decided to try it. I got the set with this and the subversion primer. The price was decent seeing as you got both. I'll never buy another mascara. The black is just so black and I love it. The only thing that I'd like to see them do is make it in waterproof.

I recently decided to try out the Urban Decay Perversion mascara and it was one of the best decisions. This mascara is fabulous and leaves my eyes bright and fantastic! I'm fond personally of travel size mascara so that I don't have to worry about my mascara getting old and wasting any. So for the price, you simply can't beat this stuff.

I first received this product as a sample size in my Birchbox. Once you curl your lashes, put on a coat or two of this and your lashes will look amazing! Always apply your mascara correctly though, or it will look like crap other wise. You have to use the product correctly to get the full affect.

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