Cosmetics company NYX Professional Makeup has received backlash on social media after featuring ads for a lipstick with bearded men.
The company appears to be finding out that going woke eventually equates to going broke, as respondents accused them of “erasing women” with the ads for Smooth Whip lip cream.
In an Instagram post, the company wrote the caption “[itsmechrxs] making us whip out our Smooth Whip in Pom Pom REAL quick. #nyxcosmetics #nyxprofessionalmakeup #crueltyfree.”
