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 mascara is definitely in my top 3! I absolutely love it! The wand is shaped how I like, and applies product evenly on my lashes. My eye lashes always look amazing without false lashes on when I use this mascara. It doesn't flake, or clump up either. I always recommend this mascara!

I'm a huge UD fan but this mascara was a miss for me...
First off I really do like how black it is but, it flakes on me and makes my lashes look heavy.
I tried a sample size so maybe the full will be different??? People love this but it's just not for me.

This mascara is so good, it makes your lashes super long and doesn't really clump up. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it transferred to the top of my eye socket like right underneath my brows, like little dots. I notice it at the end of the day.

I've only used this as a sample and was generally impressed. It definitely lengthens and darkens my lashes, though I find it to be a bit lacking in volume - however, I have kind of a high standard for lash volume so if you value length above thickness this might be the best bet for you.

I received a deluxe sample size as a birthday gift from Ulta. I applied one coat, wasn't impressed and put it aside. I tried it again today, this time applying two coats to top and bottom lashes. Wow! My lashes looked amazing!! love that my lashes didn't get that crunchy feel. It's been a while since I have used department store mascara, but I may have to purchase this one.

I received this as a sample from Ulta, and to be honest I didn't like it that much first couple of tries. However I came to really enjoy it! At first it seemed like the wand was giving me to much mascara but I learned to wipe a little off each time and had great results. It gave me beautiful full, long and volumized lashes. I would def repurchase this product!

I saw that this had almost a full five star review on Ulta's site, so when I needed a new mascara I purchased the sample size. I'm glad I did because I didn't like this mascara at all. I have long but not very full lashes, and all this did was tint them and make them a little darker. I tried extra coats of this but that didn't help at all. Big disappointment.

Personally, this just didn't work that well for me. I received it as a sample from Sephora and was very excited to try it once it first came out. Unfortunately, the formula was way too wet for me and made my lashes clumpy. I didn't purchase the full size.

Best Mascara on the market. It has a great deep black color that allows for lengthening and a thickened look. It does not clump or flake (even if you are like me and pick at it throughout the day). I do recommend buying the mascara primer that goes with it called Subversion for a better, more professional look, however it is not always needed day to day.

I wore this mascara into Sephora and had a demo completed on eye liners The mascara ran down my face, smudged, and clumped while the girl was working on my eye liner. The Sephora employee even asked what mascara I was wearing and if she could help me to find a new brand! I told her the mascara was new and from Urban Decay - I am in love with the Urban Decay eyeshadow, but would pass on the mascara in the future.

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