How Much Can You Fit in the New Urban Decay Quinceañera Makeup Bag?

Published in: Makeup, Makeup Tools

The new Urban Decay Quinceañera Makeup Bag ($26, available now at Sephora stores and online) isn’t exactly helping me master how to pack light.


But who cares?! It’s party time! — a sweet 15 of sorts, aka a quinceañera — and Urban Decay is bringing the fun.

They released the limited edition bag to celebrate their 15th birthday, bedecking it with purple and sparkles, and like any good birthday it comes with a surprise: it holds a TON of stuff!

Just how much stuff? Well…

12 cans of cat food

I love how wide the bag opens because it makes it so easy to find what I’m looking for inside. And I love how easy it is to clean. Just wipe down the inside and outside with a wet towel.

Happy birthday, Urban Decay! 🙂

    I don’t need that bag and I can’t afford it…but i WANT it! lol damn you Urban Decay!

    By the way Karen, have you ever thought of doing a blog sale or selling on ebay? You can’t possibly need ALL of those lipglosses *crosses fingers*

  20. Cassy says:

    You are amazing. That is all.

    Haha, I LOVE how creative you got with this! I might have to pick up a few for my trip to Los Angeles!

  22. Megan says:

    1) “Yes, That Is Gravy” cracked me up.
    2) Your UD stash is enviable. Coveting the 24/7 shadow pencils!
    3) By the time you got to the tea, I was giggling nonstop. The beans put me over the edge…and I’m tired, so I’m sitting on the couch, snickering slap-happily, while my husband stares. He knows not to ask. 🙂

  23. This is just too cute! :] thanks for letting us know how HUGE it is! LOL

    that’s a lot of things that you can put in the bag! 12 cans of cat food!!! O_o

  25. Lauren says:

    I’m glad that you showed us that 3 cans of beans can fit into the bag. It is quite the fabulous bean bag. Get it!?! BEAN BAG!!!!! Oh yeah!

  26. Joy says:

    I thought I didn’t need this, but your very informative photo essay has shown me how wrong I am.

  27. Molly SC says:

    I have to say, the cat food sold me. I instinctively looked at the cabinet to see how many cans I have, you know… to use as a unit of measurement! 😉

  28. Amber says:

    Oh great, now Sweet Pea will not rest until I buy her one as a suitcase for trips to the kennel.

    I think the bag is really cute but I have so much of that sort of thing — though I probably couldn’t have resisted if they’d put some little freebies in it! Years ago I bought a little pouch from them that was full of untested testers. It was a great buy!

    OMG. There has got to be a black hole in that bag, because it looks so much smaller than it how much it holds! Also, I LOVE Sleepytime Vanilla tea 🙂

  36. Ellen says:

    Best. Post. Ever. 🙂

  37. xmissxandristx says:

    i ordered mine the day it came out… when it arrived i was a bit bummed to see that it didn’t have paper or cardboard to keep it from getting smashed, so it was pretty sad looking. i put a heavy book inside it and after a few days, the bottom of it was flat again like it should be (the sides are still a little wrinkly, but it was the bottom that bothered me. but when i went to take it up to my stash, i noticed a huge spot where a seam isn’t sewn together! ugh! and of course since i’m a nanny, my invoice is no-where to be found. i’m sure they still have the order on record (and i have the confirmation email) so they better exchange it!

  38. Terri says:

    I love how you illustrated how much that bag holds. It was too cute (even though I was a little scared that Tabs might come after you for taking his gravy)!

    That bag makes me think of the one that Mary Poppins had in the movie. I was waiting for you to show a ficus tree shoved in there (with plenty of room left over for makeup and/or gravy)!

  39. Crystal says:

    wow i never would have known you could fit so much stuff in there. when you put two of the large UD palettes in i like this bag!

    Very much enjoyed your scientific research in to the bag’s capacity!

    As I was reading I kept wondering if the next demo would be “one husky tabby cat” and his little face would be poking out! I guess he’ll just have to use it to carry his modelling stuff from shoot to shoot instead. And when I say carry, I mean have his assistant carry…

  59. Amy French says:

    <3 ur pics 🙂 Now I want the bag even more! Thanks!

  60. Ronja says:

    i dont like that kinda bags. yes, you can stiff it up wit loads of makeup, but you will have to take all that out in nighclub ladies room, just to find one damn lipstick 🙂

    i want some kind of train case, but soft , like bag, wheres my makeup is organized

  61. mint says:

    lol! canned cat food <3 it's amazing how much that can hold =D but it doesn't seem very organised as a daily makeup bag. It'll make a good travel luggage bag for all the skincare though.

    Wow! great bag and I love that it’s purple and sparkly!
    I love this post because it reminded me of my non-quinceanera yay! Let me tell you, you dont need more embarassing pictures of you that young with that much hairspray, I asked for a bag and a fancy watch and it’s the best decision I have made next to always buying the full fat cream cheese.
