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 absolutely love this mascara! It really adds that little bit of extra length and volume that my lashes need. I'm not sure how to describe it... but it is a more wet based formula. It's not clumpy but it does take a few seconds/minutes for it to fully dry so sometimes it does get into my eyeshadow or makes it look as though I put eye liner on. Other than that it's a very long lasting formula and I love it!

I rate mascaras as tier 1 ( the most coveted) and tier 2 ( in case of an emergency and tier 1 mascaras aren't available). This mascara falls into tier 2. I had wanted to try it for so long and when I did I enjoyed it quite a bit but not enough for it to replace or join my tier 1 group.

I loved everything about this mascara-the volume & definition it gives your lashes, staying power, applies easily, etc. The only reason its not my favorite is because it's so difficult to remove! I always lose an eyelash or two when removing this mascara which is really upsetting because I loved everything else about it.

My favorite mascara for over 3 years! I have constantly repurchased this, soo good! Definitely use with the subversion lash primer for better results, my eyelashes can almost touch my eyebrows whenever I use this product! Very black and intense, and I love the thick wand!

This product is amazing. I received a sample size in my August Sephora Play box and it quickly elevated itself to holy grail status. The brush perfectly separates my lashes and the formula never clumps. It stays all day without smearing and still looks fabulous at bedtime.

One of the best mascaras out there! And it's at a pretty reasonable price!! I got a sample one when I purchased the naked smoky palette and I loved it so much I purchased the full sized one and it was my go to for months! It's pitch black in color, doesn't clump or flake!

I got this mascara in my sephora play box and it was my first time using it. I really liked it and found it did not clump at all. It's a now a tie to be my new favorite mascara. It's really black and one coat was even enough for more. I would definitely recommend and buy.

The was my first high end mascara. I still love it for several reasons. It doesn't flake and is very pigmented. However, my favorite thing about this mascara is how 'fluffy' it makes my lashes look. This mascara will always have a place in my collection. Tried and true.

This mascara is BLACK. It is so pigmented! It's also a lovely WET formula which allows you to coat and build volume without clumping. The brush does take some getting used to, but once you do, it's a great, long lasting formula! I use it daily! It has a nice matte finish.

Ah! I completely forgot about this mascara! A friend of mine gave me hers several years back when she worked at Ulta, long before I discovered the difference between high end makeup and drug store makeup. This mascara made my lashes appear longer and fuller and it lasted all day without smudging. Love the curve of the brush!

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