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

Highly underrated! It's actually very good, it doesn't give as much length as I expected though but it does give some volume and makes my lashes look a bit fuller

This might be my new ride or die mascara. It doesn't clump or stick lashes together, builds up nicely and looks natural bit extra.

After about 7 or 8 hours, there's maybe a teeny tiny bit of transfer on to my lower lids, but if you're not me you'd have to really inspect up close. There's been no flaking so there's no black specks across my cheekbones - bonus!

It's not waterproof, so it's way easier to take off without much effort.

Pricey, but so beautiful!

It was very thick and clumpy when I first got it so I didn't really like it much, I use this everyday as it lasts a while and doesn't fall down my eyes, it is quite difficult to remove tho

MY FAVOURITE! Everyday no matter what the occasion I don't feel complete until I use this! Fully thick black long lashes and it enhances any look you do from full glam to natural!

This is definitely my favourite mascara! The brush is plush, which I love, and the mascara itself is so "juicy"! Black and stunning! I love how my eyes stand out with Perversion !

Wow this is the best most volume and dark mascara of all times I love it but it is too expensive for me I just bought it once I wish I would get it in a voxbox I love Urban decay

This mascara is not one I prefer to use. The first tube I tried was so messy and thick that it was hard to apply without getting it everywhere. The second time I tried was in a sample size tube from sephora, and it just doesn't do anything for my lashes. It doesn't make them look longer, or thicker, or even help them hold a curl. It could be because my lashes are naturally very short and straight, but it just doesn't work for me unfortunately. I could see it working better on somebody who already has naturally long lashes.

Makes eyelashes look long and thick without clumping. Use this most day with the smash box hyperlash mascara! It comes in a black tube. First tried this as a tester and loved it so bought the full size. Would definitely buy again

This is one of my favourite mascaras to use. If I'm looking for a more natural look - this is the one I reach for. It doesn't create excessive volume or leave a bunch of fallout. It applies evenly and you can get a great result in just a couple of coats. I love the brush on the wand too. It allows me to separate without needing to comb through after applying. One thing to note is that I do not have oily eyelids, so I have not experienced smudging like many of the other reviews.

I like this mascara, a lot. The formula doesn’t clamp, I barely have to wriggle the brush to apply it evenly. A creamy, bold black formula that truly lengthens and volumes what you already have. The name is quite bold-sounding if that makes sense? It sounds powerful, original and impacting. This mascara accurately lives up to its name!

I’ve been using this everyday and it seems to never run out! I only need one swipe of my to lashes and I’m good to go. It’s not too runny, so it doesn’t smudge and lasts throughout the day. Easily my top recommendation and favorite purchase of mascara so far.

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