I know its washing day with my two Labbies decide to sneeze on my makeup brushes. Darn them for being tall enough to smell things on my desk lol!

Does chewing the heel of a brand new pair of shoes count? My kitten is very bite-y. I had to buy her a dog chew toy.

No, but I’ve had cats who’ve made things “disappear” for extended periods of time. I learned after a while to make sure things were put in their proper places ASAP.

My daughter, when she was about 2, got into my makeup, and gouged chunks out of a couple of items. Fortunately, they weren’t things I cared much about, LOL.

My husband’s cat, Yoda, enjoys sitting on my vanity and pushing cosmetics off of it, one at a time, to watch them fall. He shattered a NARS blush and several MAC eyeshadows, but worst was the Wicked Essie polish. Cleaning that burgundy off the travertine tile was a nightmare. :p

(fwiw, Yoda says, “spurious!” Yoda has a lot of opinions.)

My dog loves to chew/eat my Nivea lip balms. I have to keep them well away from her. She never chews any other things (lipsticks, shoes, etc), which is weird to me. My kids are always getting into/ruining my makeup though.

Not yet, although I’m sure my rabbit Archibald would love to chew some eyeliners and makeup brushes if I leave them within his reach. He’s a naughty little fella

My rat made off with an eyeshadow sample bag once and chewed a hole in it. She was an interesting shade of green for a while.

Great question! My cat knocked my Mary Lou Manizer over several times until it was a shattered mess – still going to fix it with rubbing alcohol though! I may have gotten upset, but I have to admit I love my kitten more than my makeup any day – and I love makeup! 🙂

Nope (but I’m going to knock on wood)! Tango (my cat who is 2 weeks away from his 7th birthday) has tried to run away with a MAC 217 in his mouth, but that’s about the only time any of my cats has laid their paws on my makeup!

Not a pet, but my little brother once emptied bottles of fluid foundation and nail polish all over a friend’s doll when he was about 4 or 5 years old, oops…. But I replaced the girls doll so not much harm done.

YES! when my sister’s husky was a puppy he started to chew on my MAC playboy bunny pink lipstick. I loved that shade and of course it’s so hard to find.. luckily i also love dogs very much <3

No, ’cause I usually keep the bathroom door closed, but I have three cats – you can see one in my photo! – and they usually like:
1 – to rip up my clothes
2 – to rip up my shoes
3 – to store a lot of rubber bands under the sofa 🙁
I cannot imagine what would happen to my cosmetcis and make up if the door would be opended!

My two cats have never been directly responsible for destroying any of my beauty products, however, they are fond of sniffing around my vanity and knocking over things pretty frequently. I did catch one of them kicking around a lip gloss though, undoubtedly after knocking it off my vanity!

My dogs are very attracted to makeup, but I don’t let them get close enough to my products because I am paranoid they will ruin something. Or eat it and get sick.

My cats regularly attack my makeup brushes, and pencils. Atleast one pencil has disappeared thanks to their unrelenting efforts.

Knock on wood, my kitties haven’t shown any interest in any of my makeup, even the brushes. I have a friend whose cats like to eat hers, though!
