The 2-Year-Old That Ate A Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Palette Because It Smelt So Good Is All Of Us
Been there, done that, got the restraining order from Debenhams. Ahem.
Anyone who's ever been within three feet of Too Faced's Chocolate Bar eye palette will know that as well as being packed with the dreamiest of eye colours, it smells like actual, real life chocolate.
But apparently the scent of the makeup is so enticing that one two-year-old mistook it for the real thing, resulting in a half-eaten, slobber covered eye palette and one slightly annoyed Auntie.
As one of the cult brand's most iconic products, the palette contains 16 highly pigmented shades that range from soft champagnes to shimmery bronzes. But when you open the compact, you're also hit with the smell of chocolate so strong that it's been known to have fully grown women down in the kitchen rummaging through the cupboards for an emergency bar of choc.
You aren't the only who's considered having a little lick of the palette when you're feeling particularly peckish - as one woman found out this week when she turned her back on her toddler niece, who happened to be playing next to her makeup bag.
Cue the kid chowing down on the pricey eyeshadow and leaving the guilt pasted all over her face.
Been there, done that, got the restraining order from Debenhams.
KIDDING. Sort of.
Anyway, before you start worrying about safety, the woman was quick to reassure everyone that she'd been in contact with Too Faced and poison control to make sure her niece wouldn't come to any harm.
Still, how gutted would you be if that was you? We're all for a sugary treat but just imagine someone eating one of you're favourite eyeshadows.
If that is something that isn't out of the question, we're sure you'll be interested to know that it's Hazelnut and Crème Brûlée that proved the tastiest shades, at least according to the damage the woman's niece did to the palette.
Feeling a bit sorry for Lauren? Don't worry too much, because the folk over at Too Faced have come right to her rescue and like knights in particularly shiny eyeshadow, they've offered to send her a new one free of charge.
We're not sure what the moral of this story is but we think it might be that you shouldn't let anyone borrow your makeup. Especially if they're a two-year-old chocaholic.
