I can rock out with the best of them, just hand me my Mix club t-shirt, nano pet and Third Eye Blind tickets -- because, you know, 1998 and the Limited too are both calling.

Have you ever purchased something while having really high hopes, but felt such abysmal disappointment from the ultimate let down? Urban Decay's Spandex, for me, was an epic fail.

Who am I kidding? Let's be frank, spandex never really looked good on me. Show of hands: who wants to see a chubby kid glide across the ice in shiny lycra? That's what I thought -- you can put your arms down, mom and dad.

When I purchased Spandex back in October amidst my Hawaiian high, I daydreamed of bokeh-like sparkle for my hazel peepers. Instead, I got itchy, watery eyes after having one heck of a time attempting to apply this starry night hue.

Where's Ben Stein when you need him?

Next time, if I'm hankering for a smidge of glitter in my life, I'll pick up a tube of Too Faced Glitter Glue and some loose glitter in any colour of my choosing.

Spandex, I'm sure, will be the first of many product fails featured here on Bagful.

Sorry, UD lovers.
