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

First off, I love the brush on this mascara. I'm all about a larger brush, and this one behaves so well. It deposits mascara evenly on my lashes and not at all on my eyelids. Also, the color really is as richly black as described. And finally, here's a mascara that you can open and love immediately without having to wait a week for it to dry out some (that is, if you prefer drier formulas like I do). After one coat, I could tell that Perversion definitely added length, and I love how rich the black color is. However, I didn't notice too much in the way of volume increase.
Now I don't normally wear two coats of mascara, but with Perversion, the second coat actually made a difference without going clumpy. It was with this second coat that I got the volume along with the length. I'm very pleased and impressed with the amount of separation the brush offers, even with added coats.

The only thing this mascara left me wanting was some curl/lift. With the second coat, I did notice the weight made some of the curl fall. However, this wasn't too noticeable.

Compared to some popular mascaras, I have to say I like Perversion better than Tarte's Lights, Camera, Flashes, which I reviewed here. However, this is only because I prefer the brush on Perversion. I think both of these mascaras give the same look with one coat, and the only difference with two is that Perversion doesn't clump as much.

I also like this better than Benefit's They're Real. Although I like the look one coat of They're Real gives better than one coat of Perversion, two coats of Perversion gives me that statement look that I go to They're Real for. But the real reason is the removal. The extra manpower I have to bring in to get They're Real off my lashes pretty much deters me from wanting to use it in the first place. Perversion actually washes off with just water.

 used to always used to run for Mascara that promised to give my already long lashes the volume I desired, each time I tired something different...either the product flaked or my expectations on volume fell flat. When I found this Mascara I thought "Why not, I'll give it a shot!" I am very happy that I did, this products pigment is a true black, brings my lashes volume, and last until I take it off. I also love the bristles of the brush, they are soft on lashes while mascaras I previously uses had bristles that were hard and just trapped product. I will be repurchasing, I don't think I'll ever be able to use another mascara ever again!

I received a tester of this mascara when I purchased a lipstick from Urban Decay. When I tried it for the first time I fell in love. The product makes my lashes SO black and SO long! One coat of this mascara gives my eyes a lovely natural look, as it doesn't go too clumpy and doesn't give me 'spider-legs.' It gives just enough volume and length for my everyday natural makeup. Although several coats of this mascara gives my lashes mega volume, and I always wear it when I want my lashes to look more dramatic. Definitely will repurchase this mascara.

I purchased this mascara when it was launched and it's the best purchase I ever made! This mascara adds volume and thickness with the deepest black colour you can ever get. The only improvement I would make is not the formula itself as on its own it is probably the best formula, but the brush could be a little bit more fan type where it separates the lashes, don't get me wrong the brush doesn't cause clumps or anything like that but it would be nice to have a seperating type of brush. All in all this mascara is amazing and I love it

Ide day this product for me personally isn’t the best but isn’t the worst😕 Urban Decay is one of my favourite brands so was quite shocked with this.. So I don’t really like the formula and how it’s too liquid-y for my liking, the wand itself is too chunky and I find it hard to apply the mascara evenly on my lashes as there is too much product on the wand. A pro is that it did a good job at lengthening my lashes, but like I said it isn’t the worst so I would use if I had ran out of my favourite, wouldn’t re-purchase 🙁

I absolutely love the intensity of the color in this mascara! It is soooooo black! But I find this mascara to take way too long to dry! It takes forever to pack on the coats! (I'm a 5 coater!! Give me the spider leg looking lashes! Lol) I've also noticed that throughout the day I do get racoon eyes! :( so disappointed because I love u.d. perversion liquid eyeliner!!

I love the look this mascara gives me; super black, long, volumous but not clumpy. I always got lots of compliments on my natural lashes when wearing it... BUT. It smudged all over my top lids every time I wore it. It's a little better when worn with subversion primer but still not great. I tried everything, from different concealers, setting under my eyes, setting my brow bone, using different shadow primers... but unfortunately me and this lovely little tube of darkness just couldn't get on

This is my all time favorite mascara! I am a dedicated mascara wearer and I've tried tons from the drugstore to high end. This mascara will consistently give you huge, soft lashes without appearing spidery! They look healthy and voluminous. As a fun fact, The Bachelor Season 21's winner Vanessa Grimaldi uses this product! Her lashes are incredible!

OMFG! This is the best mascara I have ever used. Nothing compares to the length and volume that I get from it. I originally bought it from Sephora or Urban Decay. But I am going to go back to asap. The travel size lasts me two and a half months. And I would recommend this to anyone. The only trouble I ahev is making both eye look the same.

I have been on the search for my holy grail mascara for years and i have tried A LOT of mascaras out there... this one is the best so far!

It has a thicker brush on the wand which i prefer, bit of patience needed when coating bottom lashes but it works.

I have naturally long lashes and love using this to enhance them and make them look thicker - i do apply many coats and it doesnt make my lashes clump.

There is little run and crumbles throughout the day if any! Defined would recommend

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