Urban Decay Quinceanera Bag

This glittery purple makeup bag is available from www.urbandecay.com for $26 and is the second limited-edition 15th anniversary product released this year, out of four total. People have already noticed that this is not comparable to the amazing value of the 15th Anniversary 24/7 liner set (16 full-size liners and sharpener for $92) and might not be worth the price. Now that I can inspect the bag more closely...

Cosette says it smells funny, kind of like plastic pool toys or water wings.

*Kitteh not included. Only for scale.
The lining is pretty except the print quality is lacking...

But it IS quite glittery. And purple. There is no denying it.
When it comes down to it, the bag is made in China, the hardware is plastic, it smells strongly of vinyl and won't hold the proper shape even though it's brand new, and the special 15th Anniversary print lining is badly pixelated. This needed to either cost less or be higher-quality, especially with the high expectations for these limited edition specials. If you're not utterly IN LOVE with the design, you should probably pass on this bag. There are going to be a lot of complaints from Urban Decay fans out there.
