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 just received a sample of this mascara from Ulta. I was extremely excited to try it out because I love Urban Decay's eyeshadow, but sadly I was unsatisfied. It didn't stay on very long and the color wasn't very dark (for being black), but the brush didn't clump all of your eyelashes together, which is a definite plus. This would probably be #5 on my mascara list.

ONE OF MY FAVORITES. Just like the eyeliner fro UD, I received this mascara (smaller size) in my UD On The Run Naked palette. Once it ran out I instantly ran to the store to purchase it. It makes my lashes look so long and NOT clumpy. I have tried other mascara's but none compare to this one!

Got this at an event at Sephora. I'm super picky with my mascara and while this was nice, didn't live up to the hype. It sweated off very quickly and often left me with black under my eyes. I tried using for about a month but ultimately, I needed something more durable.

I am always looking for the perfect mascara and I've definitely found my new favorite! It is a wet formula but I don't find it messy or that it smudges. It gives me volume and length. My lashes look great with this mascara and I highly recommend it.

I love this mascara. It is really black, doesn't clump and the wand is really easy to use. It is a drier formula then most but it still works nicely. I find that my curl falls throughout the day but that's just because it is a heavier mascara. Other then that I love it!

The first time I tried this mascara, I wasn't a huge fan. I thought it didn't do much for me. After I started curling my eyelashes, I've changed my mind. If you're looking for a mascara that will lengthen your lashes, this is a great one. It doesn't do much in the curling department, but it has good staying power and doesn't flake or smudge on me.

I received this mascara in my Sephora Play bag. I have so many mascara samples so I was hesitant to try this one. It is very dark which I like and it helps my lashes appear thicker and longer. The effects aren't super significant though. I like one of my other samples better. The packaging is very sleek and stylish though.

At first I was rather iffy about this mascara, but it has really grown on me in the past few weeks. It gives your eyelashes just the right amount of "oomf" without that gummy/sticky feeling. (If you know what I mean). Stays on very well, didn't flake off on my cheeks.

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