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

Loved this product! Great formula and buildable mascara for full looking long lashes. Didn't clump very easily. My only issue with this product was the price and the tubing. Piece did end up breaking off easily and it made it hard to clear off excess product from the brush so pricing was not the best for that. Otherwise I would recommend this product it's a great mascara!

I purchased this mascara by chance after getting my make up done by urban decay for prom. The make up artist used this mascara so I bought it and I have never looked back since. Not only does it last forever, but the brush is really big with lots of bristles giving incredible thick and long looking eyelashes. I have quite thin lashes and not very many hairs and I found it very easy to build up this mascara without it looking too clumpy.

Perversion is the only mascara I wear because it does everything I want a mascara to do. It colors my lashes a lovely deep black, it adds volume and it stays on all day and night. Plus is does not flake, nor does it smudge off and end up giving me raccoon eyes. My lashes are a decent length but look and this mascara paints my nearly invisible tips so perfectly that I end up looking like I'm wearing false lashes. It's a fantastic product!

I got a sample of this and I must say, it is a very good little mascara. I love the brush on this as it coats every lash and separates them well. It keeps a lovely amount of volume although the same problem as the Too Faced one, it dries out pretty quickly. To be fair, I did have a sample size so that could be the reason why it did dry up so quickly so I can hold that against the product.

Not sure how I feel about this mascara. I don't hate it or anything but it just doesn't stand out and is not one i grab for even why its more pricey. It is lengthening and gives volume but you can get better for less. If you want a good value mascara go for a drugstore one that has good reviews over this!

The end result was great with this mascara, however I do feel that  it didn't last very long and dried out quite quickly compared to other mascaras and lasted around only 2 or 3 months. I use to use this product every day and I loved using it but was quite pricey (I paid around 20euros so $35.00 AUD) for something that lasted me a very short period of time.

This is a great product because it doesn't rub off on the lower lash line and just below the eyebrow (doesn't leave the annoying little dots after a few hours of wear). Lasts all day. The packaging is great because it is sleek and compact. 7/10. I wish it was waterproof because my eyes tend to water a lot. I would recommend this.

Even though this is a pretty good mascara, it's not the best one I have tried. It's long lasting, lengthening and smudge proof. It dries fairly quickly and gives an okay volume but it's nothing special. Especially for the price! I much rather prefer tarte's lights camera lashes or even too faced's better than sex. Even some drugstore mascaras are on par with this.

one of the best marcara's i've used! this makes my lashes so long and curled. I use this almost everyday and it lasts the whole day. It makes lashes look volumized and so long. I bought this from sephora and i have repurchased it ever since. Great mascara!!

Love this mascara so much! Adds so much volume and length to my lashes. Used on top of the subversion lash primer creates the most insane results for me; like I'm wearing falsies ! 
This is from th high end mascara that I considered rebuying again and again. It gives me such big dramatic volume and it builds really nice. A little pricey but so worth it

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