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

Dear Urban Decay,
I love everything about this mascara, from the way it makes my lashes fan out, to the way it doesn't dry out. I know this mascara will be mine for a long time. I can't wait to do my makeup to have you leaving my lashes long and full

This mascara was really nice and thick for your eyelashes - it never clumped on my eyelashes. 

One thing I would say is that it would sometimes overflow out the bottle when you push the brush back into it.

I would buy this again but it isn't perfect.

I wasn't all that impressed by this mascara. I do still use it occasionally because it isn't a terrible mascara however there is better mascaras for much less of a price. It separates out your lashes which isn't really something I look for because it gives my lashes a less voluminous look. It does lengthen them slightly and curls them a bit. Personally I wouldn't re purchase it when I run out but it's not so terrible that it just sits at the back of my drawer.

I used this mascara for well over a year, repurchasing it every few months so safe to say I love it. It creates thick black lashes that look natural but can also be built up. It also doesn't transfer under the eye which can be a huge problem with many mascaras. And is not impossible to remove either. Easily a top 5 mascara for me.

I started with the deluxe sample from the Sephora play bag and I LOVED it. I have pretty full lashes and people are often surprised how long they are with mascara but sometimes mascaras clump on me throughout the day. This mascara dries quickly and separates lashes and gives you that huge boost to make your eyes look alive!!!

I wish I could give this mascara more! But it does very little for my lashes. I have short ish lashes and I had read reviews saying it made them thicker and longer....not in my case. Although I really love the brush but the formula is quite wet I found. I bought a full sized one from Mecca Maxima for about $36 and it dried out after a few months. Apart from that I did like to use it because it was so expensive but I have other mascaras that I use instead x

If you have very short lashes this won't look good, but after I've been using eyelashserum I still had this one with the rest of mt mascaras but thought I'd try it before throwing it away. WOW. It's a totally different mascara! I'm soo glad I tried it before it got thrown away!

So basically, short lashes =not really..
Long lashes = yes yes yes and oh yes!

I feel like mascara is kind of a personal item. Some people swear by certain mascaras and others do not like them at all. It all depends on the length of your lashes, how they curl, and how you want them to look. This mascara is a bit too dry for my liking, it also doesn’t curl my super straight lashes. I did like the amount of volume and drama it gave to my lashes though. But, by the end of the day I had little mascara flakies underneath my eye.

THE BEST MASCARA IN THE WORLD!!!!!! the brush is round and consistent all the way. The formula is dark and smooth and it thickens and darkens the lashes all at once. I love it. It doesn't flake or crumble. During he Christmas time they come in a package with the eyeliner which is so dark as well so that's a plus. I always get this mascara whenever I go to Sephora. Even if you don't have long and thick natural lashes, this does the work for you!

I really love this mascara. It gives me a lot of length and volume to my lashes with just one coat so it doesn't look spidery. I've gone through two full size and multiple travels sizes of this mascara. I even got my sister hooked to this mascara. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is because I experience a lot of transfer to the upper lip of my eyes when I wear it. I do think that it is good enough to deal with that issue though.

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