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."

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's Perversion mascara is my absolute favorite formula for daytime looks! I use it on the top lashes only, so I can't speak to whether or not it smudges. On top, it stays put beautifully and doesn't clump, smear, or make lashes cling together in that horrid spider-legs look. Smooth, an easy application, and it looks lovely. Highly recommended!  I also love that you can get a travel size for half the price. Mascara is one of those products that you really have to be careful about rotating out regularly, so buying the smaller size works wonderfully for getting the most out of a tube before it goes bad.

It's true what they say: bigger blacker bolder! This is the mascara I usually use every day. I love the formula. It's almost creamy I want to say. It really coats my lashes and manages to keep separation. I get scared of fluffy brushes causing clumped lashes and I never have that problem with this one. Plus it doesn't dry super quick like some mascaras so it's easy to apply. but it does stay put when dry! Awesome combined with the subversion primer for added drama and length!

I got this as a gunky, clumpy sample and threw it in my makeup bag that I took to work for emergencies. Well I had a mascara emergency and forgot my mascara. I used this mascara and fell in love! The sample wand of course is going to be a clumpy mess, but it still performed. It made my lashes look fuller without looking clumpy even though it had every disadvantage. I wouldn't say that it lengthens my lashes but it makes them look dramatic in a glam way. Also, I didn't have the black smudge under my eyes after 4 hours of wear like most of my others. I did purchase a full size product for my mascara rotation.

This, by far, is my favorite mascara. I tried to love the Too Face "Better than Sex" mascara, but that formula splatters all over my face making the cleanup process of my gorgeous eyeshadow destroyed. This mascara does a very similar job, just without the splatter! I buy the deluxe sample sizes so I don't worry about not using all of it before it expires. It looks wonderful with multiple applications, it doesn't clump up, and just looks beautiful.

This is probably my fav mascara.  I typically only buy the mini sizes because I dont seem to go through the full ones.  I'd rather use up the mini's and buy again before throwing out some full size that goes unused or whatever.  Anyway, I find it doesn't clump up for me, and since I have what I call "non existant" lashes, they make me look like I was born with something worth seeing.  :)    If I am at work, i use one coat; if going out, I use 2.  I also like that I don't see the mascara on my lashes in my sight line like I have with some other brands.  that annoys me.

I LOVE this mascara for VOLUME! It doesn't work as well as other mascaras as far as length goes (aran oil infused does the best for this) but it does well! It's a very good quality and I LOVE the brush of the mascara-wand. One thing I HATE with this mascara is it ALWAYS clumps on the side of the tube. I've probably bought over 5+, and it never fails to do this on every single one! Another issue I always have with this mascara is the constant clumping. I'm not for sure if it's because the consistency is thicker than other mascaras or what- but it always seems to clump on my lashes which is a hassle!!

I got this as a sample in one of my Sephora orders since I'm a VIP member and it's by far my most favorite mascara of all time. I used the entire sample and just recently bought the medium sized mascara tube from Sephora. The brush is really nice and the formula isn't heavy at all. It elongates my lashes and creates an amazing look to really make my eyes pop. The also amazing thing about this as that the mascara actually isn't expensive. Since it's Urban Decay I thought it'd be relatively pricy, but the medium sized tube i just ordered was only $10 and it's a great size and will last me a while. I made the mini sample I got last 3 months without drying out, hopefully this will last longer and definitely be better than getting the full sized tube ($22)

The formula of this mascara is very good. It doesn't run, it doesn't transfer onto either your eyelid or your undereyes. The brush is big so it's meant for volume. I use it for my bottom lashes to makes them apparent when I smoke out my bottom lash line. It takes so easily when removing your making. Overall it's a great mascara. The reason why I give it 4 stars is because, since it is a thick wand it's doesn't lengthen, but if you do want to mix it with another mascara it'll come out perfect.

I got a sample size of this mascara 2 years ago as my Ulta birthday gift. While I used it, I liked it, however it was always flaking under my eyes, no matter what conditions I was in. I will not be purchasing a full size of this product since I think that there are far better options at the drugstore for a lower price. My favorite mascara to use if the   Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel™ Washable Mascara !!
