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

I received a deluxe sample of this mascara from Sephora and I really enjoyed it. Usually I don't feel the need to spend a lot on mascara since the drugstore has a lot of great ones. But this one gives a ton of volume and doesn't clump. Plus it is extremely black.

I received a sample size of this mascara in a Sephora Play box and I loved it so much that I had to go out and purchase the full size. The brush is amazing, separates lashes and adds volume. The mascara itself doesn't clump up nor does it flake. Its my current fav!

I don't understand why there are so many bad reviews out there for this mascara! I actually really like it! The formula is a bit runny (the reason for a star docked), but besides that I really like it! The color is dark and intense and doesn't transfer onto your lids.

Nice rich black color, fluffy brush catches the lashes nicely. Helps to add a bit of volume and a slight curl. not my fav mascara, but a real decent one. That being said, the price is what knocks some stars. This is a nice mascara, but with more affordable and, IMO, better options out there, why pay more?

This is my ride-or-die mascara. I literally have a few extras in my makeup collection just in case I ever run out!! This makes your lashes look so thick and voluminous it is absolutely amazing! And pairing it with their primer the "Subversion" only makes it look even better! Awesome value for its price for sure.

This is my holy grail mascara!!! It does not flake, it stays put all day, and it leaves my lashes feeling very flexible (not crunchy like other mascaras)! This mascara gives me volume like no other and I would definitely recommend this to others and buy it again!

I got a sample size version from IPSY and I'm not much of fan. I have those short straight lashes and this doesn't do much for them. I'd rather use the roller lash for my eyelashes. I'm sure it would work out better for those with normal eyelashes though. The brush is big and plush; almost swallows up my lashes

Pleasantly surprised. Loving this mascara. Deep black in color and gives me full volume without clumping. Lasted all day. A good competition to my regular Too Faced Better than Sex. It came in a special promotion with a liquid liner pen, couldn't beat the deal. Will purchase again

Wonderful mascara! Goes on evenly, last for months and gives good volume! I have bought over 4 of these in the past two years! I won't use anything else! Good value! It may be more expensive than your drug store brand, but it lasts longer and looks really good.

This mascara is just okay, it isn't my favorite mascara to use but it gets the job done.I love the fact that is it SUPER black! It is the blackest mascara I have used. I love the way it makes my lashes look but the only downfall is sometimes it will smudge and flake on me.

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