Zero to Perversion in One Swipe: Urban Decay Zero and Perversion comparison swatches

As you might recall, I was quite excited that Urban Decay released their 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion for spring 2012. I already had Zero and while I liked the smooth, long-wearing formula, it just wasn't the deep black I was looking for. Enter Perversion, stage left.
It was love at first swipe, but Perversion was tied to another. Or rather, many others. Perversion was first released in the 15th Anniversary 24/7 Eyeliner Set, which comprised 15 eyeliners and sharpener for $92. I know that people love these eyeliners, but spending $92 at once on eyeliners? Not for me. So, I waved Perversion away. Fast forward about a year, and Perversion and I meet once again. This time, Perversion's crowd of cohorts that kept me away last time have shrunken significantly, as has Perversion. A lively group of five travel sized liners (one of which being Perversion) were released in the form of the Electric 24/7 Travel Set of 5 ($32). Perversion flirted with me once more, and I thought about it. At the end of the day, I decided all those extra friends that would come along with Perversion weren't what I was looking for.
A few months later, I learned through facebook that Perversion would be on the prowl soon, in full size and independent! Finally!
A word of warning: Perversion commits. Perversion is clingy and a challenge to get off your face at the end of the day.

On to the pictures, all under a daylight bulb.

Swatch time!

I find that Perversion gives me the intensity I crave in one quick swipe.

Comparing blacks makes me think of the scene in Legally Blonde where Elle asks Warner what kind of shoes she's wearing and his response is, " ones?"

I'm glad to have Perversion joining my arsenal, and it can be found at for $18. I definitely suggest keeping it in mind next time you're looking for a black eyeliner.

What do you think?
