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

One of my favorite mascaras! Got a sample at ulta and went back for the full size asap! Now I've gone through a few tubes over the past year as it is a must have in my collection! It is great with smoke eye like old as it gets a really dark and full application. Wish it was more waterproof and smudge resistant but that's why I wear it with darker or more intense looks.

I got this mascara as a sample from Ulta. I lost my go to mascara so I said heck why not. 
Girl rly let me tell you!!! It was light weight, it separated my lashes but not only that it gave them length and curled them up. I was sitting in front of the mirror like omg!!
the color I got was black and it was a true black. Didn't flake during the day or loose it's curl either.

I LOVE this mascara. It goes on very thick and dark, and I have actually been asked if I am wearing fake eyelashes when I have this mascara on. Works best for a dramatic look, it's easy to apply. If you don't do dramatic looks very frequently, I recommend getting the travel sized version so the tube doesn't dry out before you use it all since it is on the pricier side.

This is my go to prestige brand mascara. I tried better than sex to try to keep up with the rave about it but honestly for me this just made my lashes look way better! I love the brush and the formula is smooth and creamy, I rarely get clumps or chunks on the wand. It lengthens my lashes while making them full! I have tried a dupe for this but nothing compares to the original and I always go back to this mascara! I highly recommend it and don’t think it gets the love it deserves!

I really liked how great this brush gripped all my lashes to evenly coat each and every lash. This mascara made my lashes look a lot more full then most others I have used. Because it grabs so well it also made them look longer. Full long lashes what more can you ask for?!?

This is a great mascara that really covers lashes well. It makes them look really long and black. I don't curl my lashes, so I can't speak to how it holds curl. I like that there was minimal flaking and that it came off fairly easily with soap and water. The only downfall is the price. I have a hard time paying a lot for mascara when there are great drugstore mascaras.

I love the perversions mascara by urban decay. It's easy to apply and goes on smooth without clumping. The package is simple but isn't ugly. The mascara lasts all day, no need to reapply. I highly recommend this, even if your watching your pennies. Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

I don’t mind this mascara but I think the price is too pricey for the formula. I know it’s not waterproof, but I’ve tried other mascaras that aren’t waterproof yet they can handle a little bit of the water/tears that come out of my eyes. This one takes a while to dry and does leave some residue if any water is put on it but it does give very nice volume to the lashes.

This mascara is very easy to use and goes on well. It does not clump and applys very dark color which I like. I use it almost everyday to coat my lashes. I would buy this again. I think it is good quality but the price is a little expensive. I would buy again.
