We can all agree that nothing is more painful than discovering that your favorite highlighter has been destroyed. Obviously, you can purchase a fresh one, but seeing that you have a substantial amount of product left feels like a punch to the gut. While you can be mad at yourself if you’re the cause for your destroyed makeup essential, but imagine if the cause of your highlighter being smashed is because of your child. Yes, that the case for Pearl Boshomane Tsotetsi, a South African journalist.
See, Pear took to Twitter to give her beloved Fenty Beauty Killawatt highlighter a proper goodbye. In her tweet, she posted a picture of her daughters face fully covered in highlighter and another image of the smashed palette. Le sigh! We’ve all been there.
While you might think that this is the end of it, there’s more. Pearl reveals in a follow-up tweet that she was supposed to be under the watchful eye of three men.
“I am livid mostly (99%) because she was in the care of three adult males,” she tweets. “I had to ask them where she was. If you don’t hear a toddler for more than five seconds, you’ve got a problem. That’s what I get for trusting men.”
Smh. We all should know that the first rule in watching young children is to always keep an eye on them. They can cause destruction in little to no time.
While Pearl of course received backlash from other Twitter users about the safety of her daughter, there is one good thing that came out of this funny yet unfortunate incident. Fenty Beauty came all the way through with the save!
