A woman's dog got the first impression of a high-end eyeshadow palette before she could even use it.
Ordering a new makeup product online can lead to an exciting anticipation for its arrival to your door and using it for the first time.
But in one woman’s case, her dog got to her new Kat Von D eyeshadow palette before her.
If you are someone who invests in quality, high-end cosmetic products, this story may hurt your heart.
A woman on Reddit (Pyokkimassu) posted in the Makeup Addiction subreddit and shared her damaged Kat Von D Shade + Light Glimmer Eye Contour Palette.
She captioned the photo: “Finally bought this palette, but my dog got to the parcel before I did 🙁“
The photo shows chewed off edges on the left side, with destroyed shadows and a broken mirror.
The palette retails for $49 (plus tax), so it is somewhat understandable why she would be upset that all of that money is wasted, and many of the subs followers feel her pain.
One user was actually concerned about the dog: “Seeing this made me gasp. RIP shade and light. Also, make sure doggo didn’t eat any glass!”
This user was just as upset as the owner: “I literally just yelled ‘Noo!’ out loud. I am so sorry. Bad doggo!”
But then another user gave her probably the best advice: “Don’t try to salvage it. It might be riddled with bacteria from your dog’s mouth and fragments of glass might have gotten into the eyeshadow. You are putting that stuff on your eye. It’s not worth it. I would email the store and explain what happened. Maybe they can help you with finding a solution (maybe refund or discount). If not, buy it again anyway. Yes, it’s a lot of money, but it just became an expensive dog’s toy. Once you have a new and shiny one. you will forget this ever happened. Just get a fresh one and get rid of this.”
Okay, at the end of the day, it is just makeup. Yes, I can understand that shelling out for a $50 eyeshadow palette and not being able to use it is annoying – but think about the dog!
Pyokkimassu did not mention if the dog was okay or not, but we hope he’s not in any danger.
At the end of the day, I’d rather have a healthy pup than expensive eyeshadow.
