It’s a picture which can trigger each make-up fanatics and fogeys alike to weep.
Rows and rows of lovely, lush eyeshadows spanning the entire spectrum of the rainbow – DESTROYED.
This is the sight that greeted make-up artist Brittney Nelson when she visited a department of high-rent beauty chain Sephora, in Augusta, Georgia.
The price of the harm amounted to an eye-watering $1300 (roughly £981).
As for the diabolical mastermind behind this destruction, it was, apparently, a small baby.
At least at in response to Brittney – who additionally hastens so as to add she didn’t see the kid do it.
Brittney revealed the extent of the harm finished to the show in a put up on her Facebook web page – and accompanied it with a message to different mother and father.
“I about passed out when saw this atrocity.”
“$1300 of Make Up Forever eye shadow destroyed at Sephora tonight due to a small child,” she wrote.
“I am positive he/she thought they have been like finger paints and had no concept how naughty they have been being.
“Tons of destroyed product and p****d Sephora forged members are a not a contented place to be. Mammas, please store in your make-up with out your tiny people.
“It’s not fun for you…or them…or the expensive product.”
Despite not having caught the perpetrator red-handed, Brittney later advised Insider : “We walked in proper as a girl and her child have been hustling out of there.
“The glittery footprints helped us decipher it was a tiny human.”
While you do not have to be Nancy Drew to conclude it in all probability was a small baby, her put up attracted each help and condemnation.
“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,” wrote one supporter on Twitter.
Another agreed, “I’ve three small children. Whenever I’m going wherever with them, each two minutes (max!!) I am doing a head depend.
“That lady whose baby ruined the Sephora show is careless and self-absorbed. It’s my job to verify my children aren’t destroying retailer property.”
However, loads of mums took umbrage to Brittney’s message.
Despite the criticism she’s prompted, Brittney is sticking to her weapons.
She added to Insider, “I’ve seen messed up testers a gazillion times throughout the years from tiny humans.”
And woe-betide the mum whose baby is messing round in Brittney’s presence.
“If I do see a kid doing that in a store I will just offer to help the mom out,” she stated. “That’s what us moms do!”
