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 had high hopes for this mascara, but it fell short in just about all areas. I did like the intensity of the blackness, but it didn't add much volume or length. I like a mascara that can hold a curl since my lashes tend to fall straight, and this weighed them down and did nothing for curl.

This is definitely a pigmented mascara. It doesn't leave my eyelashes clumpy, which I love, and it's not too heavy where it brings them down. I love that it separates my eyelashes perfectly. I have small eyes, so the pigmented color really makes them pop. It definitely gives great volume.

I love this mascara, I just discovered it as a sample I got from Sephora. I went and bought the full size to see if it still worked the same and it did, I was so impressed on how long and beautiful it left my lashes. Only con for me is I'll have to apply carefully or I'll get some on my lid

This set is the absolute best mascara I have ever owned. I recently tried the Calvin Klein mascara but it just does not compare. I plan to spend te extra 4$ next time and get perversion again. While I don't use the primer everyday, I do admit it helps my lashes look A LOT fuller. I generally save it's goodness for date nights and parties.

What I would recommend if your mascara is very getting dried out is to add a tiny tiny bit of rosewater to the bottle. It's natural and will loosen up the dried out residuals of the bottle. The make up brand Younique makes a great rose water !

Love this mascara it goes on so easily and nicely. I also love the lightweight feel of it and how great it looks on my eyelashes. It does not look too much or too little. They also have a great price on it.

One of the best mascaras I've ever used. Which says a lot from my collection of twenty something. I got it as a sample from their promo and been hooked since. I use it nearly everyday and I just can't beat it.

I am so in love with this mascara. I was lucky enough to get this from Ulta for free with a purchase. It is so worth every penny you spend. It does not clump and is so easy to apply. You get amazing lashes.

I love this mascara! The formula is perfect, it goes on smooth and doesn't fee heavy at all. Doesn't flake or wear off throughout the day either. It's a little spendy, but for a product that looks this great and lasts all day it's worth it!

Currently this is the only mascara I use, besides a drugstore one. I decided to try two different mascaras once to see if it would add length and indeed it did. I used this mascara as my second one and it made my lashes look bolder and longer!

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