Product Description

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."

  • "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

Persuasion mascara is what I use in combination with another mascara, it’s more than your typical Walmart brand, but compared to the others it’s less clumpy and truly helps define your lashes to get that bold look. I typically pair this mascara along with Better Than Sex mascara. Gives you that long bold lash combination you have always been looking for.

This wasn't bad, but it wasn't what I had hoped it would be.  It gave me a very "your lashes but better" look, but it didn't create as much volume or length as I was hoping for.  I didn't like the brush either, and felt that it was a little difficult to apply.  I think that there are better mascaras at the drugstore that would be cheaper.

I really love this product. Especially when I’m wearing it for a few hours (date night). It doesn’t work as well for me at work and tends to run by the end of the day (why it only ya 4 stars). Despite the running of the mascara during work it’s still my go to when I’m getting ready for a night on the town. My lashes look beautiful with this produce on!

I love this mascara for a few reasons. Firstly, it is the blackest mascara and is not matte! The formula has a satin finish that is flexible and adds volume. I also love the brush! It looks messy but it grabs a hold of every eyelash and coats them so nicely! This mascara is great for anyone who already has plenty of eyelashes and just wants to accentuate them.

One of my two favorite mascaras ever! I never want to be without this. It’s got the most perfect sized brush, it’s not too big but its not tiny either. The formula is amazing, it feels a little more wet but I don’t find it transfers or anything bad like that. I actually just picked up another tube of this the other day. It’s seriously amazing!

This mascara instantly delivers full, dark lashes on a scale from subtle to tarantula. The brush is fat and bushy and it's packed with dense, short bristles. The formula is a bit creamy, so it adds bulk to lashes as you drag the brush through. This stuff really comes to life for evening looks. Multiple coats makes lashes dramatic, long, and thick. There is a bit of clumping, even with one coat, but nothing a lash comb or your fingers can't fix. As with most bulk-up mascaras, this one may flake a bit after a few hours. It also takes a a while to get all the color off at the end of the night, so keep going at it with makeup remover or you'll wake up looking like a raccoon.

One of the ONLY two high end mascaras I will splurge on. this mascara is simply amazing. It is extremely dark and lasts a long time. It gives your lashes amazing volume and length. I always go back to this mascara time and time again. You don't need to layer other mascara on top to get amazing lashes. 10/10 recommend this product.

I had really high hopes for this mascara because the wand looked great and it was a bit out of my budget but honestly in my opinion the L'Oréal Paris Voluminous® Lash Paradise Washable Mascara is SO SO much better like it’s amazing and doesn’t clump or flake the way this one did but I will not repurchase and do not recommend.

This is my number one mascara for over a year!  I have went through many of the deluxe sample sizes and two full size.  It adds tons of drama, length and thickness.  I wear it everyday but I could see why some people might only want it for evening looks.  One tube last a very long time.  Doesn't run on me.

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