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

I was first sent a small sample of this product. I liked how it gave me thick lashes after just a few applications. After using this product for awhile I decided to go buy the full size version and I am very happy that I did. This mascara does such a good job of building up to thick lashes that look like falsies.

I love mascara it is one of my absolute favorite beauty products and this one in particular is pretty great! It is extremely black glides on smoothly and does not clump when you add multiple coats. I recently went to an Urban Decay master class and they talked about this mascara and it is supposed to help with growth and care of lashes as it has vitamins infused into the mascara I'm all for products that work and are good for you!

I absolutely love Urban Decay Perversion Mascara and I use it on a daily basis! I had been using a different product for many years before during a make-up application the make-up artist used this product, let's just say I was instantly hooked! I went out to Ulta the next day and bought my own! The product is a very reasonable price, I have not used any other mascara brands since finding this one! Highly recommend getting!

This mascara is super black but does literally nothing for my lashes. I usually love and can work with any mascara that has real bristle wand, but no matter how many coats of this I put on it just did nothing. I have really long and thick lashes naturally but this still didn't make my lashes look great.

I received the small tube as a birthday sample from ULTA and immediately fell in love. After attacking the small tube, I went back and purchased two more. My lashes looked longer, fuller and darker all without me needing to apply SO many coats, or needing an additional waterproof layer on top. Long wear, great wand but sometimes struggled with lower lashes without smudging on my face.
Perfect and I'm seriously buying again.

I got this as a sample for my purchases at Sephora and fall in love! You only need to apply a little unless you want those dark lashes. The small tube i got as a sample lasted me so long i still have it and when i am out i will def. buy more for myself and my daughter! I love the bran itself and this stuff make yours eyes POP!

I just purchased this mascara for the first time during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty. It was on sale for $11 and I had heard so many good things about it, so I figured why not?! I have to say that I REALLY love this mascara. It is so black, which I love. It also gives great volume and length for my lashes. I have pretty good lashes, but this mascara helps give them much more drama. I think it's a great quality mascara.

Perversion is a mascara I feel is perfect for blending my lashes in with my falsies. It's super black and the brush is soft enough not to move my lashes while coating them. I've purchased the travel size in the past, but I'm ready for a full size tube now.

I received the travel size of this mascara in an Etsy bag. I absolutely fell in love with it an even kept the mini bottle so I wouldn't forget what the brand was for when I needed to refill it. I had heard people rave over another mascara so I decided to try it and it was a big mistake-- this one definitely takes first place! The wand is the perfect size and the mascara does not go on super wet-- it dries quickly and gives my lashes lots of curl and volume! Just purchased a new bottle today!!

This mascara is easily one of my favorites. The mascara brush allows you to apply as much or as little mascara as you want with out getting clumpy- which makes it great for day and night make up routines. It also really helps curl my eyelashes and makes my green eyes stand out more. My high school english teacher was at the store when I was looking at it and she decided to buy it as well and we both love it, hahah.

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