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

LOVE LOVE LOVE. My all time favorite mascara. They make my lashes so full, long and black. I love the formula.. it's a little bit more wet than other mascaras. The smell isn't as bad as most mascaras. I will forever buy this mascara!

In my opinion, this is just another run-of-the-mill mascara. It's pretty average in providing volume and length. The black is just ordinary black, but it smudges horribly after wearing all day. The one thing I like is the brush, but it's not extraordinary by any means. This travel size is nice for bringing it along on trips though.

This mascara is incredible! This mascara is so dark and makes your eyelashes extremely thick! I first got this as a sample at Sephora, but was sure to go back and buy a full size because of how much I loved it. I would definitely purchase this product again!

BEST mascara hands down. I love me some Perversion. Worth every penny. My lashes are bold, black, full, longer, and just sexy. You cannot find a comparable drug store brand when you're talking UD. Just gifted my sister with some and she was sold immediately. She also said she didn't care of the cost of having a top beauty product.

I would have to say that this is the best mascara I have used in the 35 years that I have worn mascara. It has the best coverage and stays on without flaking and for the money is the best I have used.

I love love love this mascara. I originally got a sample of this in my post bag when it originally came out. The formula glides on like a dream. My lashes are instantly volumized and lengthened. I typically apply more then 1 mascara for a desired effect but this product does it all. For extra volume use the subversion primer.

This mascara is really great! I went out on whim and purchased it. I have very few eyelashes and it actually makes me look like I have many more than I actually do. I would recommend this mascara to anyone and everyone! It's AMAZING!

I have used this mascara for a while now, and it's really awesome. I wish it was bigger so I would never run out. I love the tube and it lasts me all day and does not clump. Would buy this again in Ulta!

Overall, this is a really nice mascara! It goes on super smoothly and is very pigmented. It can be a bit clumpy though, and it doesn't do a great job of maintaining a curl, but it does stay on well throughout the day! I find at least on me it doesn't smudge a lot either!

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