I have tried different types of mascaras and totally love my free sample that was sent to me. I have had so many compliments on my eye lashes..... I swear I look like have applied false lashes. I have added two pictures...before and after Perversion!
Thank you Urban Decay! Now, my sample will have to last until we can buy in the stores......
I got this product for my birthday sample and I loved it at first. The brush is really nice (I typically use the rubbery brushes) and one coat gives nice volume and length, which is good because this mascara isn't very buildable. I have naturally longer lashes that I usually like to add lots of volume to, and I like to have very dramatic lashes/false lash look. Even though one coat of this didn't give me that exact look, it was pretty close, so I was really satisfied. It also does a nice job of curling my lashes even if I don't use a lash curler, and the curl holds up fairly well. I thought I was really impressed with this stuff and was stoked that I had gotten it for free.
The problems started within about an hour after I applied it though. The first day, I realized a few hours after putting that my eyes were getting irritated and seemed extra itchy. When I rubbed them, it felt like there were pieces of something really tiny and sharp in my eyes. At first I thought it may just have been allergies, but once I saw the flakes on my face I realized that it was the mascara. Then I noticed that there was mascara smudged all along my upper lash line (I had no eyeshadow or liner on top), and even up on my brow bone where the tips of my lashes had touched. Since then, I make sure I don't get any mascara on my lash line or brow bone and give this mascara plenty of time to dry/set, but it still ends up all over the place in a couple hours. This stuff looks great at first but doesn't stay put at all on me, so unfortunately it's not something I'd purchase in the future.

I've tried over 30 mascaras and this one was nothing special, the brush is clumpy as well.

Leaves dark marks easily. I checked to make sure it wasn't my skin/foundation, etc, but it does it regardless. It also doesn't build length well. Save your money and get something much cheaper. I usually love Urban Decay but not this.
Julia from Minnesota
I really love the volume this mascara gives, it provides a nice amount of volume and length to the lashes but the formula of this mascara is really wet. It tends to smear easily if you aren't careful but if you have the time and patients you should be fine. The wand is really nice as well, it's similar to too faced better than sex. Overall I probably wouldn't buy it again but if you have it or want to try out the mini version I would say do it! Just a bit pricey to keep buying for me but it's not a bad mascara!

I've used countless brands but this perversion is the one I keep going back to. Makes my lashes so bold and full plus it lasts a good while!

Clumpy consistency. Didn't want to adhere to my lashes easily. Left mascara impressions of my lashes on the back of my eyelids by the end of my work day. Definitely returning this garbage. I had much higher hopes.

This is my favorite mascara. Gives volume and lengthens your lashes.
Sarah from Missouri
Love the wand. might save it and clean it just in case I try something else and don't like the wand.
A from Cary
Nothing special. As someone who has naturally light and short lashes I'm very picky about mascara, and this just didn't do anything. I don't really have anything negative to say but if you have lashes like mine this won't really make a difference.
lalalalaura from MI
I mean, this does everything a mascara should do. It doesn't make me redefine my expectations for a mascara, or anything.. It just fulfills every need that you want out of mascara. That's all I can ask for.
MEL from Jupiter, FL
This is one of the worst mascaras I have ever used. The formula is way to wet. I have super long lashes so I am lucky, but this does not benefit them at all. My favorites are the Better Than Sex Mascara. Also, Benefit Bo-ing Mascara is great also.
Paraissa from Wisconsin
It's a super great mascara. There's not any clumping, and it applies easily.
Sarah Lynn from Chicago, IL
This product was extremely disappointing, considering I love every UD product I have tried so far. I have naturally long, thick lashes. This mascara left my lashes stiff and clumped together, resulting in a "spider-lash" effect. The color was definitely off as well -- it was a deep gray hue, not black by any means. On the upside, it didn't irritate my sensitive skin and eye-area. I've tried to use this several times, I love a mascara that enhances my long thick lashes, but this just isn't it. I will not be repurchasing, nor would I recommend.

paint remover vibes, looks very nice though!!

This was my go-to mascara for a while. It gives your lashes so much length, volume, and color. I also love the wand it has because it allows you to coat your lashes. I had to stop using though because it smudges and runs throughout the day. I always ignored it at first because I loved the way this mascara made my lashes look, but over time people would come up to me saying my mascara was under my eyes or on my lids. I wouldn't really say it's long lasting. If they change their formula to fix this, I would go back to buying it in a heartbeat.

I bought my first tube of Perversion last year. I absolutely loved it and finished that tube and followed with another. I took a brief break with trying some other new mascaras but just came back to what I thought was my "holy grail". I don't know what happened to the formula, but this wet, smudge-prone mascara is not the same that it was last year. I'm hoping I got a defective tube because I absolutely loved this mascara and thought I finally found my "go-to".
Erin from Pennsylvania
I usually love UD products, it this was underwhelming. I didn't notice much of a difference. There are other high end and drug store mascaras that I prefer. Won't be buying again.
May from Illinois
I actually bought this mascara on accident, but I'm really happy I did. Until now, my favorite has been the "better than sex" mascara, but I found this one was basically a better dupe. It gives more length without losing the thickening effect that I like. A new favorite!
Ivyhorse from Churchton, MD
I'm buying it for a 2nd time. Where has this mascara been all my life? I've had in 7 months. It is still the perfect formula. I have very sensitive eyes & oily skin. It is so gentle, dries well, stays soft on my lashes (no artificial feel), thickens my lashes like no other and looks amazing all day without irritating. I love the brush & the formula, 2 things I've tried to find all my life, like a unicorn. I found my unicorn!
Nadia from Surprise AZ
It goes on without clumping, does not smudge. Eyes don't water
S from Memphis, TN
100% worth the price tag. Great for layering and does wonder for length and volume!
Alex from Bangor, Maine
This is one of the best mascaras I've used in a long time. I switched to this from another brand that I swore by for years and haven't looked back since. I'm at the end of my first tube and will absolutely be going back for this again. I do have to scrape the brush on the side when taking out the wand because it picks up so much product, but I don't really see that as an issue. Gives great volume, stays all day, and is still easy to wash off at the end of the day. Perfect!
Missy B. from Reading, Pa
I love this mascara and not only will I buy this again, but this is my go to! The brush is the best and it doesn't get clumpy. I can wear this mascara all day and have absolutely no flaking. I will probably never use any other mascara.
Nikki from West Virginia
Easy to use and long lasting mascara. Gives lots of volume and thickness to your lashes. Only downside is it is a little pricey.
Scully58 from New England
I like others, have tried many, many brands of Mascara and spent a lot of $$$.
I tried this on a whim and at first I wasn't too keen on it. But the more I use it, the more I love it. And at the moment it is my go to Mascara. Lengthens, curls, does not flake and washes off easy.
The only negative is that the brush is a little big. Not enough to knock off any stars, but I would definitely love it more if the brush were a little thinner.
All in all, I really like this and so happy I gave it a try.
