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 really enjoyed this mascara. However, I only like it for my top lashes. When I put it on my bottom lashes, it easily sweat off onto my face. I had raccoon eyes; it was horrible. I feel that a waterproof mascara is needed for my bottom lashes because they are so long. This was a great sample, but not my every day mascara.

I've always been a Benefit lover but this mascara is fantastic! It doesn't clump at all and the brush coats my lashes well. The only thing I'd say is that the formula is hard to remove and won't come off in the shower, you get raccoon eyes and have to use a makeup remover.

At first, this mascara is dark, wet, and promising. However, it's so wet that it makes a mess while you're trying to put it on. Also, it takes forever to dry which is a huge bummer. And finally, while it is a jet black color, it will leave dark rings under your eyes all day :( so sad to have paid so much for a faulty mascara

Have been repurchasing this product for about 2 years now
High end at $20
Sleek packing
Very volumizing
Very black
After a couple hours transfers a little bit
I use mine with a primer so together they are a nice duo for my lashes

I got this out of an eyeliner/mascara sampler from Sephora, and I love it. It makes your lashes longer and thicker, and the wand fans them out nicely. Two coats is perfect, but if you let the first coat dry too long, the second coat being applied can get a little clumpy.

I love this mascara. It lasts for so long and it gives my lashes a long and full look. It can run throughout the day if you aren't careful but that's ok. It makes my lashes look so bug and pretty. I love this for an everyday look.

I love Urban Decay Perversion Mascara! I am not someone who loves mascara. I usually like a subtle lash look and a lot of the big volumizing mascaras come off clumpy and gross to me. Perversion manages to make my lashes look long and thick without being goopy and gross.

I love this mascara! It has an intense pigmentation. The packaging is slick and well made. I got this from my Ipsy subscription as part of the monthly bag. I would definitely buy this again because it makes my lashes thicket and bolder.

Best high end mascara out there! I have purchased this a few times and everytime time I'm reminded why I love it so much! The wand is great for coating every single lash and doesn't make them clump. I recommend this to my friends all the time! It's a definite must have!

Not my go to but I do enjoy using this product. It doesn't accent my lashes but you can tell I'm wearing mascara. It is a great value and compares to Maybeline. I do recommend this to those with long lashes already to darken them.

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