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

Best Mascara ever! I received this mascara as a sample and was hooked...it was the best. I've actually went out ad bought a full size size since then and already need to buy more. I highly suggest it. My lashes have never looked better :) #Influenster

Makes my lashes super super black and also gives a great combo of thickness and length. one of the best mascaras I've tried. I don't think it's water proof but it doesn't really smudge or run on me but it's still easy to take off at the end of the day

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!

By far the greatest mascara. Fully worth every penny spent. (The primer sample was a promo when this was first released). I recommend purchasing the full size Subversion primer to get the best lashes ever. The combo of the two make a remarkable difference before and after. Yes, $42 total for mascara and primer seems kinda crazy but it's not as crazy as how crazy-beautiful your lashes will look once you try this!!

I got a sample of this mascara and I REALLY wanted to like it, but I just don't! At first I thought I received a defective batch when I purchased it, but I exchanged it and the second batch was the same. I feel as if several swipes of application still don't produce much results on my lashes.

YEEESSS we all need the #urbandecay mascara!!!!
I tried a couple other brands that compare in price, popularity and similarity's and I keep coming back to the #perversionmascara every time!!!
For whatever reason a lot of the mascara products I've tried I've always gotten fall out but I have never gotten any of those problems with this love of my life!!!

I got a free sample of this mascara and was pretty pleased with it overall. It didn't have a big tendency to flake like some mascaras do and I didn't notice a lot of flaking/fallout with long wear. I felt like it made my lashes look fuller / longer overall than the cheap mascaras I usually buy so I generally wear it on nights out rather than for my every day look.

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.
