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

My favorite mascara. Nice thick wand brush, extra black in color. Makes my lashes go to a whole other level! Worth every penny and I highly recommend. Makes my green eyes stand out and pair it with the Subversion eyelash primer and you'll have the most magnificent lashes in town!

I thought i would love this mascara since urban decay quality is usually amazing, and other than some minor eye irritation this mascara is good. i don't believe it is worth the price tag. i do prefer some drugstore alternatives over this because this irritates my eyes after awhile.

I got this as a sample from Ulta and was pleased with it. I really like the brush but sometimes it does go on a little clumpy. I'll take a lash brush and separate them. It does give great volume and doesn't get flaky by the end of the day.

This is by far my most favorite mascara. I have been using it for about 3 years now. I like it much better than the younique fiber lash mascara. I can get really dramatic results with this mascara, and the primer is not a must have. I can achieve same results with or without it.

As I was checking out at ulta, I saw the travel size UD Perversion and threw it in my bag. It is great. Its so so black and makes my lashes look full. It doesn't flake or anything like that. The wand is real nice. Worth the impulse buy!!

This mascara is alright. It doesn't do anything amazing for my lashes. I have short straight lashes and it just doesn't lengthen them enough like other mascaras do. I've got a few of these as samples or gwp but don't think I would buy this on my own.

Literally the only mascara you need if you want volume and length! Not waterproof unfortunately so sometimes it does smudge on the corners but I just set that area with powder to prevent that bc even with that, I would never not use this mascara. It makes my lashes look so amazing

I LOVE this mascara as an every day mascara. It's a whipped formula and also has triple pigment infusion, so you only need a little bit in order for it to work the way it's intended. It doesn't feel heavy, doesn't clump, and stays on beautifully all day!

This mascara wasn't as bad as I believed it would be. It was extremely lengthening and made my lashes look like I had extensions put in. Although I'm not ready to quit my favorite mascara forever, I will not mind reaching for this mascara in the future.

This didn't do anything for my lashes. If anything, they made my lashes point downwards. I have Asian lashes and it's hard to have them stay up. This mascara didn't make it longer or more voluminous, so I wouldn't recommend this mascara.

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