Kid Destroys $1,300 Worth Of Make-Up In Sephora Store
Sephora is every beauty and make-up 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.

A little kid seems to have gone to town on the testers available at a Make Up Forever display at a Sephora store in Augusta, Georgia and made a huge mess! Prepare yourself for the next image, it can be quite distressing for any lover of make-up.
Sephora shopper and makeup artist Brittney Nelson “about passed out” when she came across the scene as she went in store on Saturday night. Shocked Sephora fans quickly took to Twitter to express their opinions.
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 Ms Nelson of “mum-shaming”.
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 per cent 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 is not partaking in “mum-shaming” or “kid-hating”.
Either way, the image of destroyed eyeshadow testers are enough to make any make-up fan cry.
