Child Destroys Over $1,000 Of Makeup At Sephora Store, People Defend The Mom
Over $1,000 worth of Make Up For Ever eyeshadow testers were reportedly destroyed by a child at a Sephora store in Augusta, Georgia, on Nov. 11.
Brittney Nelson, a makeup artist and shopper, took a picture of the disaster and posted it on her Facebook page (below).
Nelson recalled the incident to INSIDER: “We walked in right as a lady and her kid were hustling out of there. The glittery footprints helped us decipher it was a tiny human.”
INSIDER notes that some on social media are accusing Nelson of “mom-shaming” on Facebook, but Nelson blew off the criticism:
I woke up to the internet mob of insanity because of my one cranky post. I honestly don’t think I said anything 99% of people don’t think anyway so I’m not that devastated by the hurricane of it.
Nelson’s Facebook posting:
$1300 of Make Up Forever eye shadow destroyed at Sephora tonight due to a small child. I’m sure he/she thought they were like finger paints and had no idea how naughty they were being. Tons of destroyed product and pissed Sephora cast members are a not a happy place to be.
Mammas, please shop for your makeup 💄 without your tiny humans. It’s not fun for you…or them…or the expensive product. Anna Heath and I about passed out when we saw this atrocity.
Being me, I’ve needed to bring Allie into many makeup stores as she’s grown and had a strict ‘hands in pockets’ rule for her and a strict 10-minute rule for me. It was very helpful so if you must take your kiddos makeup shopping I suggest trying it.
This massive demolished palette makes me 😞. Makeup should always make me 😊. *It looked 100X worse in real life and I don’t work for Sephora. I was just walking in as the mom/kid were hustling out of there
