Yikes.

Nelson shared photos of the ruined display on Facebook as a "PSA" to moms to leave their kids at home while makeup shopping.

She writes:

???PSA??☹️
$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.

Someone shared the photos on Twitter, where they've created a wave of horror among makeup lovers everywhere.

Lots of people are blaming the parent for allowing the kid to make such an expensive mess.

While some moms are sharing their own tactics for keeping kids from destroying other people's sh*t.

But others called Nelson out for "mom shaming" by telling parents they can't bring their kids out makeup shopping with them.

I feel the worst for the kid, who probably thought they were just playing with paints. Which makeup technically is. Also, maybe they just wanted to send a message that women are under too much pressure to look a certain way, when we should all let loose and get our hands dirty in some expensive makeup.

Please weigh in on this extremely important issue.
