However, fans have been dragging her for a video she posted this week on her Snapchat. One person named Jordan did us all a solid by uploading it to Twitter.
In the video, Mitchell shows off her "favorite" Bioré makeup remover that, as she says, even gets rid of waterproof mascara. However, people are saying it seems like she...barely even wiped her eye? Like, if at all?
People were dying laughing.
Shay Mitchell magically “rubbing off makeup” without touching her eye is the same as Jaclyn Hill magically having a much more vibrant eye look “off camera” with those vault palettes https://t.co/FpwDY0iUAx
They said she def was just pretending to remove her makeup.
Can’t stop laughing at Shay Mitchell pretending to remove her makeup HAHA LIKE GIRL U DIDNT EVEN TRY TO BE REAL
Some said it was super cringeworthy.
Tell me @shaymitch must be beyond embarrassed about that “makeup remover ad” #cringe
"Girl you didn't even touch your damn eye."
Can we talk about how cringe the @shaymitch biore ad is??? Lol girl you didn’t even touch your damn eye hahaha https://t.co/oJCII7JCZ3
Many also found it hilarious.
the video of shay mitchell pretending to take off her makeup for a sponsorship is so funny I can't stop watching it
Women are even posting their own videos to show how easily they can take their makeup off too!
shay mitchell be like
It's so easy!
just thought i'd test my favorite product the shay mitchell way
Others pointed out that this seems to be another instance of the beauty Instagram community being shady.
So @bioreus , you’re just going to allow @shaymitch to “promote” your products like this? This is embarrassingly bad. Especially given the climate of the beauty community at the moment. She didn’t even use the product. Anything for $$ I guess. https://t.co/4ALBUPacHn
"Just makes me think the product isn't worth buying if she had to lie," said one person.
@bioreus you guys cool with the public being blatantly lied to by someone representing your company? Just makes me think the product isn't worth buying if she had to lie 🤷♂️ 🤔 #biore #lies #con #shaymitchell
