For busy women, applying some last-minute lippie or a slick of mascara on the go is not a big deal.

But when one woman started touching up her make-up on the underground this NYE, she was met with some rather harsh criticism.

A man was overheard commenting: ‘”Don’t do that, it’s vulgar,”, publicly shaming in a busy tube carriage.

But rather than ignoring the rude comments, the other women in the carriage came together and showed this mouthy individual a thing or two about the solidarity of sisterhood.

Other women in the carriage grabbed their make-up bags, suddenly all having the urge to fix their lippie in unison.

And one tweeter gave us a live account of the action:

Bloke has just told the woman he’s with not to put makeup on on the Tube. Every other woman in the carriage is now fixing their makeup.

Another twitter user responded, ‘@rosamundi a strange man on the bus once told me “putting make up on in public is very unbecoming of a lady”.’

To which @rosamundi said: ‘I don’t normally do makeup in public in case I poke myself in the eye, but we all treated it like a declaration of war.’

Others thought the advice could have been friendly…

But whatever the reason he said it, one things for sure… Hell hath no fury like a woman on the underground!
