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 have this along with the primer and I'm pretty impressed with both of them. My lashes are shorter and not very thick and the mascara and primer together give me a little length and volume. I've tried so many mascaras over the years and this is probably the best I've tried yet. My lashes don't get clumped together and don't get flaky but it's easy to remove at the end of the day with a make up wipe.

I can pretty much use any mascara on my eyelashes because they are so long and it will look great....even $1 mascara. I tried a sample this and decided to buy a full tube off it. It was horrible. It would flake off and sweat/smear. ONLY mascara I have every had this do!this to me. Would NEVER recommend.

This is my go-to mascara, I've never found anything drugstore wise that even comes close. I've tried all the duplicates, and none of them are as long wearing, as black, as curling, as lengthening, and as voluminous as perversion. The only thing I don't like is the because it is my go-to mascara and I love it so much, I go through pretty quickly, and I wish it was a little bit cheaper for there was a duplicate

This is a very wet formula. For me it’s a little to wet and I end up with mascara on my eyelids and underneath my eyes. It doesn’t flake or smudge otherwise. It does provide a lot of length but doesn’t give any volume. I won’t repurchase as I hav other products I like better some of which are way less expensive. If you only need length and like a wet formula in a mascara, this would be perfect for you.

I received this as a gift and i absolutely love this! it leaves my lashes so long and full. I have the trial size so i will be purchasing a new one. it is easy to use and i love that it lasts all day without having any fall out. I love that it doesn't leave my eyes dark after removing it.

Highly recommend!!! I have thin, short and somewhat sparse eyelashes and I'm unfortunately allergic to eyelash adhesive so this is the best mascara that gets me to the (almost) look of false lashes!! Builds layers and length nicely, lasts all day, runs a little when applied to lower lashes but still quite wonderful!!

I have made a decision to never buy high-end mascaras again, however this is one I can't let go. I used this before the 'better than sex' craze. It gets AMAZING volume, and the brush is huge so it grabs on to all of my lashes. It is a wetter formula and that is what I love about it. I have been buying the travel sizes for ages now and I started to buy the full size so I don't have to make as many trips!

I have searched high and low for a really good mascara and I'm so glad I found this! Urban decay is becoming one of my favorite makeup brands for many reasons, and this is the biggest! Long lasting, no flaking, and provides length while also thickening. Love love love!

Ok so like, this mascara is totally cute and the bottle is cute and all but honestly it isn't anything special. Like am I happy I have it? Ya obvi, but like do I feel like a drugstore mascara could of done the same thing? For sure b*tch. Like I mean if you have to be bougie af and all then ya get it, but if you're ballin' on a budget just skip this & get like a Revlon mascara or something. Xo, Angel.
