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

UD sent me a sample, it was great packaging. The wand was well made, the black is a great shade and it goes on nice and easy. I didn’t need to apply 5 layers of mascara to see how it looked! Which was fantastic, lasted all night!

I have used this mascara for a few years now. I enjoy the color and I also enjoy the volume it gives my eyelashes. I tip, I use the primer they have and it makes a world of a difference. My eye lashes are longer and last so long!

This is by far my favorite mascara! It is a very rich black and the formula is great for volume and length. It lasts all day without smudging. I love the packaging- it’s very edgy. 10/10! Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

This is my favorite mascara ever. One swipe and you’re ready to roll out on the red carpet. It makes your lashes look so full and long, and a second coat makes them look even more dramatic and full. I recommend this to anyone!

I love it. It does everything that I need, volume and length. It’s dramatic and I like that. It’s soo black and it makes it even better. I don’t think I have one complaint about this formula. It’s a bit pricey but it’s works.

I've only had this for a while and am still testing it out, but so far it's not for me. It has a very liquidy formula I struggle to keep on my lashes and not my lid or under eye and the brush is large and feathery so while it gets everywhere yet doesn't seem to coat my lashes. As a mascara that's marketed with its key feature being extremely bold, dark lashes, it hasn't delivered. I've been using the bare Minerals Lash Dominatio (i cant write the full word or this is labeled inappropriate) Volumizing Mascara 11ml and it has a liquidy formula, but it has nothing on this one. (it also has an easier to maneuver brush). Maybe it's because liquid formula mascaras dont work for me or because I got the travel size, but I wasn't thrilled with this product (other than the packaging which was classic urban decay chrome and purple and was beautiful). (I did also recently purchase the Urban Decay Nake (again, inappropriate) Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer which I love, if you're looking for a good UD product)

Another top 5 mascara for me. This one checks all my boxes: helps me hold a curl, provides lots of volume, and rides the fine line between too wet and too dry. The brush also separates without making my lashes look too spidery.

I loved this mascara! It has a classy black tube and gave lots of volume. Gave a decent amount of length. This does have a tendency to flake some and i don’t think the price is worth it when there’s better mascaras out there

I honestly gave this mascara a good two weeks (used daily), and I wasn’t a huge fan of the results. :( I would say I would just wear this mascara in simple and natural looking looks or just using this for bottom lashes only.

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

I'm a big fan of Urban Decay's products. Does this mascara hold up to it's namesake?
