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 is my all time favorite mascara. It helps my grey eyes to pop with its very pigmented black color! I love the length it gives to my lashes. Its definitely more of a lengthening mascara than a volumizing mascara!

Using subversion and then perversion keeps my lashes feeling long and beautiful. It is my go to mascara and I always get compliments when I use it. It is also easy to remove so it is not harmful to your lashes. Clearly I use them a lot.

By far one of my favorite mascara's!!!  LOVE the wand!!! The product is super black, doesn't smudge, doesn't clump on me and I feel it helps hold the curl on my lashes all day!!  Its a little pricey but way worth it!!!  Always find myself reaching for this one out of my collection.

This is one of my all time favorite mascaras, but I didn't love it the first few times that I used it. This is one of those mascaras that gets better after it dries out a little bit. The wand is really full and soft and give lashes a fanned out look.

Perversion is my favorite mascara that urban decay has made. I have to say that it is good when you first open it but I feel like it doesn't stay working that well after its been opened. I would rather buy a cheaper mascara then spend the extra money on this one.

I highly recommend this mascara. It applies so easily and really makes my lashes look full. This is easily one of my top three favorite mascaras. It has a fluffy wand, but not too big. This size wand applies mascara so well. I have no complaints about this product. I would definitely purchase again.

It was a decent mascara but not one that wowed me. I didn't find it any longer lasting than any other mascara in my drawer and like so many of them, wearing it caused a reaction with my eyes and the skin around. It went on clumpy, so I had to brush through my eyelashes with a clean brush after application.

Literally the best mascara I have ever used! It makes my eyelashes huge, without looking over the top! There's not too much crumbling as the day goes on and it stays on all night! It's super easy to remove at the end of the day as well! Would recommend!

I tried this and wasn't really impressed with it. I didn't like the results and found the formula to be a bit clumpy not matter what I did. The brush is too bulky for my liking as well. I won't be purchasing this one again as there are way better mascaras out there for a fraction of the price of this one.

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