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 has such a nice wand! It's really full and soft and creates a really dramatic lash look. It does a good enough job for me. I wouldn't repurchase it but I will definitely use it up while I have it. I'd recommend this!

It looks great when it is first applied. It is very black and makes your lashes look thicker. However it does not look like this very long. Halfway throughout the day it looks like I viciously rubbed my eyes. Literally look like a raccoon. I defiantly would not recommend this, I myself regret buying it.

I LOVE this mascara, I use it for everything from a natural look to clumpy lashes. It looks wonderful on my blue eyes. Sometimes throughout the day it starts to come off but I just go over it a couple times with the same mascara or a spooley and it looks fine.

Love this mascara. picked it up my chance and i am so glad i did. it gives my eyelashes length but doesn't over clump them. i like the brush too as it is more of a brush than a silicone comb. would def recommended for anyone needing a different or new mascara

This is my favorite mascara! The they're real by benefit doesn't make my lashes look as think and long as the perversion. Too faced better than can quickly make your lashes look clumpy while this one does not. This is a wonderful mascara and worth every penny.

This is my second favorite mascara of all time. It's #2 because it can get clumpy if you aren't careful. It is the blackest mascara that I own. the brush is soft and easy to use. I would recommend buying the deluxe sample size if possible so that it doesn't dry out before you finish it.

Hands down this is one of my go to mascaras. Makes my lashes look full with volume and also great length. Its richly pigmented so lashes look super dark. No problems with flaky or smudging. Try this mascara out! Works great

I have looked far and wide for a mascara. I tried fiberwig, million lashes, better than sex, yes they're real, etc etc and by far, this is the best. It's volumizing, not in the WOAH ARE YOU WEARING FIVE LAYERS OF FALSIES but builds natural volume that looks AWESOME. This, too, stays on all day which is perfect if you're a college student, or a worker bee like me.

A friend recommended this to me so I bought it from Sephora. I really like it. It builds up without leaving your lashes dry. It has a silky feel to it so if you need to, you can add more later in day without that crunchy feeling to the lashes. I do recommend!

This is my favorite mascara, people literally think I have on false lashes when I wear it. It lengthens and volumizes my lashes. The closest drugstore dupe I can find is the L'Oréal Voluminous in Carbon Black but it can't quite get my lashes on the same level. This stuff doesn't flake or bleed! Worth the $20

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