Kid Destroys $1,300 Worth Of Make-Up In Sephora Store
Sephora is every beauty and makeup lovers idea of heaven.
The stands for each brand display a whole range of testers and it’s near impossible to leave the store without the back of your hand covered in eyeshadow and lipstick swatches.
Swatchy swatchy... Made some damage @sephora_scandinavia today.. Can you guess the brand?? 😉 #swatchhand #sephoragothenburg #sephora #sephoragbg #swatchfest #makeup #sephoragöteborg @sephora #beautyblogger #beautyyoutuber #beautyvlogger #beautyblog #blogs #blogger #blog #makeupblogger #beautybloggers #
But it seems one child went to town on the testers available at a
Sephora shopper and makeup artist Brittney Nelson “about passed out” when she came across the scene as she went in store on Saturday night.
I just saw a post of the tester shadows at Sephora being destroyed by some kid while the mom shops and I’m so TRIGGERED— ryen (@heartkilllcr) November 15, 2017
Parents who not only bring their kids on inappropriate outings but let them run rampant are the worst...look at this, $1300 worth of MUF destroyed by an unattended child a Sephora.😱😱😱 pic.twitter.com/za7B60ocjY— 🦊 (@sharplikeafox) November 14, 2017
I have 3 small kids. Whenever I go anywhere with them, every two minutes (max!!) I’m doing a head count. That woman whose child ruined the Sephora display is careless & self-absorbed. It’s my job to make sure my kids aren’t destroying store property. Period.— Belinda (@belindalaurie) November 15, 2017
Among the many reactions from distraught make-up fans, there were a few people who took issue with the nature of the post and accused
I brought my six year old cousin into a Sephora with me. She just tried on the makeup like a normal person :/— mangu mami (@Gabba_Oddviedo) November 15, 2017
Maybe it's more about letting children know that things are not to be destroyed https://t.co/eg6JLoAcCn
I’ve taken my kid many a time with me makeup shopping. The parent in this case was not looking after the kid. Plus, all those employees Sephora have in the store, you’re telling me they turned a blind eye to the kid doing this?— Mari_Shala🇹🇹 (@DP1778) November 15, 2017
@Sephora This is not okay, as if it isn't hard enough for a mom to be out in public with her young kids 1) the employees didn't SEE who did this 2) that's a good 4ft up unless this 2yo is the size of a 10yo I doubt it was a "young child."— Leah Marie Griffin (@lgriffin9211) November 14, 2017
In reaction to the negative comments, Brittney told INSIDER: “I woke up to the internet mob of insanity because of my one cranky post. I honestly didn’t think I said anything 99 percent of people didn’t think anyway so I’m not that devastated by the hurricane of it. I’ve seen messed up testers a gazillions times throughout the years from tiny humans.”
Brittney also made it clear that she was not “mum-shaming” or “kid-hating”.
Either way, the image of destroyed eyeshadow testers are enough to make any makeup fan cry.
