Rated 3.79 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Good mascara
This mascara is very good but not great that's why 4 out of 5 stars. Goods: doesn't clump ( not too much comes out of tube which I love), doesn't flake, is a dryer mascara then it's cousin as it should be , which is also good (no spots all over my hooded eyelids), goes on smoothly with at least two coats. Worked beautifully over Subversion primer and one other primer that starts with a G. Washes off easily. Lots of volume with at least two coats. Cons: fades throughout the day requiring another application (this is why one less star), which I don't have time for throughout my work day, make sure eyelashes are dry and clean before applying, which I normally do, but I put it on in a hurry while getting read to go out and it did smudge onto my lids. I use a pretty heavy eye cream because my eye area is very dry. Brush is fat like it's cousin so be careful when applying.
Over all, will repurchase but there are other waterproof mascara's out there that I do like better but they are more expensive. I am also glad, though late, that UD listened to their customers and made this mascara in a waterproof version which works better for me.
FYI: 53 yrs, light, curled, thin eyelashes that will stretch out very long with a good mascara.
Most Helpful Critical Review Just okay
This mascara isn't as good as the original perversion I remember. I was so excited for a waterproof version, as the regular tends to smudge on me. Unfortunately, this is NOT it. It takes at least 2-3 coats for it to thicken my lashes, and then it starts to clump easily since it is so dry. I think I will be returning this, especially since i was hoping for a mind-blowing mascara for the high price tag.

This mascara glides on smoothly, my lashes stay separated and look crazy long. It also stays put until I take it off. It is a bit pricey but well worth it!!
I would not buy again. I love the non-waterproof!!
Shannon from Lancaster Pa
I don't like the perversion waterproof, but I love the urban decay perversion regular!!
This mascara looks soooo good
Katie the makeup newbie from Syracuse, NY
Wore this for the first time for my sisters wedding and it lasted through bright sun and sweat, as well as a torrential downpour. This stuff is awesome
This is the only one I will buy
Molly3132 from undisclosed
As a firefighter I had a hard time finding mascara that wouldn't smear down my face. During a 48 hour shift I am running multiple calls where my mascara could smear down my face but it doesn't move. Even when I shower inverter's these calls my mascara is still there! This is the only mascara I will ever use
Love this product!

I really like this mascara and not too expensive
Urban Decay Mascara

This is a great mascara for someone who wants a waterproof product.
Does not thicken lashes as good as Stila
Donna from GA
I went to the store to get stila mascara. The sales person suggested UD instead. I wish I would of stuck with stila. It works so much better.
Had to try it twice
Holly D from Connecticut
I tried this mascara when it first came out, and hated it. I barely got any product to go on my lashes. Well, that tube must have been dried out, because I recently repurchased it to try again and fell in love. It builds so well and isn't too wet that it gets everywhere. 2 coats and it's lovely!
All day with no complaints.
Lace from KY
I dont normally wear make up everyday but when I do I always do mascara and shadow. Unlike everything I've tried this is flake free, smudge proof, tear proof , and looks as good at the end of the day as it does at the beginning.
I always love a mascara that lasts all night
Kbellin from New Jersey
this mascara did not let me down, kept my eyes looking great and didn't smudge in the 100⁰ weather
Shy chy from Naples,Florida
Terrible, very sticky and almost impossible to get an even color over my blonde lashes. Not worth it ...the original has my heart, maybe it's because it's waterproof ?
Taking it back
Kelly from Pennsylvania
It must have been dried out because it's just thick and clumpy.
Lex14 from Jefferson City
Love this mascara, along with the original version! I use both mascaras in my make up routine. I use two coats of the original and one of the waterproof and I get full, long lashes that stays in place all day, but also comes off at the end of the night!
Vanessa from Solano
I love this mascara. My only issue is it isn't black enough and i need to double dip constantly, but i cried for 3 hours and it still stayed on!!! Not the best in black and bold but definitely the best waterproof mascara!!
Not Enough Volume
PghFitGirl from Pittsburgh PA
I was excited to try this out because I love the Subversion primer. But I was very disappointed with the mascara. It does not provide enough volume or length, even with multiple coats. I will be sending it back and sticking with my regular mascara.
SW from New Jersey
I love the original Perversion and wear it most days, but I ride horses competitively and on the days I ride I wear this. It is a thicker formula, but goes on smooth. In my opinion it does not give the same dramatic look that the original does, but for me and what I use it for it doesn't bother me. It stays on and stays put with no smearing even on HOT humid days, heavy sweating, and getting caught in the rain. I also find that it comes off SO easy and gently with Garnier's micellar cleansing water (with the blue lid) on cotton rounds. By far the best waterproof mascara I have ever used!
Waste of Money
Sun from Holland, MI
I purchased this mascara with the intent of being able to actually use it. It is so dry that it barely even goes on. What did make it onto my eyelashes was clumpy and VERY light-barely noticeable. I returned it for the regular perversion which looks great, as always.
Bring back Cannonball
Knielsen from Colorado
Cannonball mascara was my go to mascara the last several years and I have had zero luck finding another mascara. This mascara does not measure up to it
I love urban decay
heather from IN
I love it so much, perfect for those hot summer days when your spending the day in the water or just sweating all your makeup off
Gabsluvsmakeup from TX
Bought it recently and it has staying power. Lasts all day, even through hot humid weather! Would buy again.
Not equivalent to the original Perversion
PeninaD from Pennsylvania
I've always done well with the original Perversion, and was so happy to finally see a waterproof version for sad days or swimming.
But it's just not the smooth flowing application I've been used to.
The formula seemes drier/thicker and just a bit of a chore to apply, very difficult to get those teeny lashes coated.
And within a couple of hours, I would notice a burning sensation on my lashlines.
Waste of Money
LauraSL from Chicago
It dried out very quickly and is unuseable. I was very surprised because a few years ago I had the original version of this mascara and it was great.
Holy grail of mascaras!
Kim from CA
This is the best mascara I have ever used and I can't see myself using any other product. I need waterproof mascara in my food service job where water splashes on my face from time to time and I'm moving around. Stay-proof makeup is a must. This mascara will stay on ALL DAY. I have applied this mascara at 4am when going to work and wear it all day until midnight, with no smudging, flaking, and movement. This stuff is powerful. It will even stay on when you take a nap and you will wake with perfect lashes, having zero black smudges under your eyes. This stuff is pure magic and using any other mascara would be insane. This is the stuff to get! Everybody I know raves about the Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' mascara, but that waterproof formula flakes and is ultra-dry out of the bottle. This Urban Decay 'Perversion' waterproof formula is moist, not dry out of the bottle. I adore it and have no words for how impressive it is!
Holds a Curl!
Chunky Cherub from Los Angeles, CA
I have problems with mascaras holding my lashes up and this one does it very well. also stays on and never flakes!
Jen from Maryland
Was a waste of money. Very unhappy with this product.
