Headline on Buzzfeed I can't begin to interpret...


Anastasia Beverly Hills Will No Longer Work With Rodan + Fields After A Ton Of Fan Backlash
"Time to dump your Brow-wiz and Dip Brow for supporting pyramid schemes."

What in the world are they talking about? I have close to zero idea what this news item is about -- what field of human endeavor - what context, what genre. What little I can guess is that this is at the intersection of makeup and financial fraud. Supposing there is such an intersection.

Anastasia Beverly hills is a makeup company that does brow stuff (browdip pomade and brow-wiz) and they announced a partnership with Rodan+fields, who is apparently am MLM type company for skin care products. Fans of ABH got pissed off, and slammed ABH (and suggested getting rid of any product they have and of course, refusing to buy more) because of predatory practices by R+F. So ABH cancelled the partnership.

Wow. Well, there's a simple, or at least not all that complicated, explanation. Thank you!

Just by reading only the first sentence of the article it becomes clear what headline means:
"The beauty brand Anastasia Beverly Hills says it will "not be continuing" to collaborate with multilevel marketing company Rodan + Fields after a ton of fans slammed ABH for partnering with a company they called predatory."
It's not even necessary to read the rest of the article.
