Ive never fallen in love with a mascara until I received this one in my Ipsy bag a very long time ago. I've repurchased this mascara three times! It makes my lashes look a lot longer than they are & thicker without clumping and it doesn't make them look too clean looking & too separated which I've experienced with other mascaras. I always use this with the UD Subversion mascara primer & they go great together! With other mascaras I've always had a problem with them smudging when I use them on my bottom lashes but with subversion perversion combo it stays put all night!! Without the primer it might run a little bit on my lower lashes but it's not nearly as bad as the mascaras I used before.

How is it more people don’t know about this gem?! This is the holy grail of mascaras. I’ve tried DOZENS of mascaras of all brands drugstore and high end and never stayed with one long as they just didn’t do what I wanted, and I’ll be sticking with this one from now on. You don’t get a ton of product on the wand gumming things up, and it never is clumpy with is heaven sent for me as gummy wands and clumps are horrible for me. The application is so smooth, and SO BUILDABLE. You can do a few swipes without curling beforehand and they still look really good, but if you curl them and spend a more time building it up it can legit almost look like falsies. My eyelashes are stronger and growing better since I started using Perversion, and once on it’s not crusty feeling and is soft to touch. It doesn’t flake even after 12+ hours, and even with crying it doesn’t smear or run, it will just wipe off a bit with a tissue if it touches the lashes. Only minus is it can be difficult to take off, but with a good remover it’s a breeze. MUST. BUY. SERIOUSLY.

In my mascara buying experience I've leaned to save myself the money by only buying the smaller travel size version of any mascara when possible because 1) I don't seem to apply mascara that often and end up wasting the full size and 2) it allows me to try multiple brands. I have long natural lashes so I only use wands with bristle like applicators and I hate waterproof formulas. This is a more dramatic heavy duty alternate to my more natural looking BadGirl lash by Benefit. I absolutely adore this mascara it is fairly easy to apply with clumping or getting all over myself :) and it comes in the smaller size. Other honorable mentions is the Size queen by Too Faced and the Lights,camera, lashes by Tarte.

Great for drama

In short, this is a great dramatic mascara if you want bold, black lashes! I don't use it every day (I prefer brown) but it's my go-to for when I want a dark, dramatic lash that won't smudge. I like that it is easy to build and pairs well with other mascaras that I sometimes use as a base (Avon Supershock, Cover Girl Lash Blast). Also, it doesn't claim to be waterproof but I find it difficult to remove even with eye makeup remover so it definitley has staying power and doesn't smudge easily. The only downside is that it can get clumpy if you're not careful and the formula is a bit too wet at first. I actually like to open it and then let it dry out for about a month before using it. I find that after a month, the formula is perfect -- not too wet, not too dry.

Flakes and Smudges Quickly

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.

Mascara Anyone have recommendations on a good mascara? I love the effect of long, voluminous eyelashes. I used Too Faced Better Than Sex and liked it, but I'd like to try something new. I use Rimmel London Scandal Eyes when I'm on a budget. Don't really care about price, just looking for recommendations on a good lengthening, voluminizing mascara.

Best mascara for my ladies who don’t use falsies? Lengthening, voluminizing, doesn’t clump? Preferably drugstore, but I’m open to anything! I have relatively short lashes.

This may be extra as all get out but I use a combo or two or three different mascaras. Usually a lengthening and a thickening. Right now I’m using urban decay perversion and benefit “they’re real” or bad gal bang.

My eyes are ultra sensitive and would react to any kind of clumping during the day, so I switched to this mascara and I love it. It doesn’t clump and it makes your lashes look super long and thick!

Girl when I say that my eyelashes are flat, they are FLAT. I personally love this mascara because it lowkey curls them so I don’t have to bother with using an eyelash curler and, I don’t know what’s in it, makes them super dark and thickkk. I would really recommend this product because it is a game changer for me and what I used in my profile picture for my lashes!
