A Kid Destroyed a Thousand Dollars Worth of Makeup At Sephora?
So I heard about the incident in Georgia at Sephora where a Makeup Artist took a snapshot of a destroyed Make Up Forever display. Someone ruined dozens of pans of eyeshadow. They were claiming it was $1300 in damages, through research other media sources are claiming different values the prices are all over the place. The point is the Makeup Artist blamed a child.
This Facebook picture goes viral, and the internet experts come out of the woodwork. The caption stated she saw nothing. She keeps editing her facebook post to make her story more credible. Facebook edit history is public. I think people don't read the captions.
If a child did that its somewhat strange, they only destroyed that one massive display of eyeshadow. There are two palettes and plenty of colorful liners untouched lower within a child's reach. I have been to Sephora plenty of times with small children, and most little kids cannot reach that high.
I can't imagine a small child's finger doing that much damage the purple shadow where the pan is showing. It looks like someone did that with something sharp like an acrylic nail.
Individuals who have raised no children say half of the ignorant things like well you should you should watch your kids. Nobody even came out to say they saw it happen. Some of the comments are vulgar. I think someone who just has not experienced what it is like to raise children who are little human beings with minds of their own is like a backseat driver. Sure, in theory, you may think you know best, but you're not in the driver's seat, are you?
I am not trying to be insensitive here but since when has everyone become parenting experts. Not only people who have not raised children like to say rude and somewhat damaging things like leash the child (check the tweets) but other parents love to slam the mother. I guess your child never once embarrassed you in public then? Perhaps broke something expensive.
I am going to just call it for what it is posting that picture got the Makeup Artist a lot of attention. It was petty of her to take a picture and give a parenting lecture when she did not even see what happened.
We do not know a child did that and commenting parents should not be bringing kids to inappropriate places (Sephora) is judgemental. Someone needs to call BS on this.
Since when is the mall an inappropriate place to bring kids? It was not a bar or a strip club. Malls are full of kids. If kids should not shop with their mothers Sephora would not do well a good portion of their customers are mothers.
No one has mentioned the points I will make.
I worked retail, and there is no statement from the store or Sephora, and Allure and Teen Vogue picked this up. One would think Sephora had security cameras. Sephora should have made a statement. For all, we know they were destroying testers to replace them with new ones. Ulta and Sephora destroy these all the time because people dig through their dumpsters. Many stores are preparing for Black Friday.
The fact is she was more concerned about taking a picture and posting it on Social Media. We only have one side of the story we don’t know what happened.
Who says a kid did it? One person who admits she saw nothing.
I am just so tired of these bashing parents for what their kids do. I’ve been a parent for 21 years, and I know a secret about parenting sometimes despite your best efforts your kids will do something you find appalling.
If a kid did this we ask where was the mom or dad and why the heck didn't the store employees stop it?
Taking a picture of a broken display at Sephora and then lecturing people about parenting without knowing what happened is as childish.
Mother's never rush with a child right? Maybe the kid had to go potty. She saw small glittery footprints. I'm calling her out on that too. I doubt it made a big enough mess on the floor to step on it and leave a footprint. Not even that much powder fell on to the display below so I am calling BS on the whole thing.
So what do you think? I think someone saw something and assumed a child did it and then started a sh*tstorm on Twitter. That's what I think.
