Cardi B is coming for our beauty bags so get that schmoney ready! The rapper always has her manicured hands in a new pot. To date, she's collaborated with a gang of different brands to release everything from shoes to clothing collections to lipstick. The rapper possesses a clear passion for fashion and beauty as well as music. She's known as much for her red-carpet style moments, her flashy nails, and her gorgeous makeup looks as she is for her music. It's only appropriate that she add a beauty line to her list of business ventures.
Thankfully, Cardi B recently revealed that's exactly what she plans to do!
Now Cardi B has hinted that she's got a beauty line coming in the near future!
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight about her third Fashion Nova collection for summer 2019, the rapper ventured off into a conversation about motherhood and other business ventures, including a beauty line!
“I feel like you’re such trendsetter at this point. People come to you for fashion inspiration. People come to you for beauty inspiration. When is the beauty line coming?” interviewer Katie Krause asked Cardi B.
The rapper immediately responded with one of her signature laughs.
The rest of their chat went as follows:
“Soon?” the reporter asked.
“Very,” Cardi B confirmed.
“Can you give me a little tease?” the reporter pushed.
“Ohh, I don’t know,” Cardi joked.
“Something that you want to do, though?”
“Something that I want to do,” Cardi responded.
And there you have it, folks!
This is not a drill. This is not a joke. Belcalis Almanzer, better known as Cardi B, has beauty products coming soon. Prepare those coins. Pull out those calendars. Turn on those social media notifications for her Instagram and Twitter. Cardi B beauty goodies are on their way "very" soon, according to Cardi B herself.
Although Cardi B gave zero details about exactly what products she will release, we're hoping for lipsticks, a vibrant eye shadow palette, highlighters, and fun nail products to be absolutely on brand.
Now, this beauty line news has us wondering which brand will have the honor of selling Cardi B's cosmetics!
There aren't too many beauty brands that wouldn't jump at the chance to collaborate with one of the hottest stars in music right now. Cardi B is also known to wear a variety of different brands ranging from drugstore to indie names to super-high-end brands like Tom Ford. She could go for the affordable drugstore brand to keep in line with her mission to provide affordable products to her fans as she's done with Fashion Nova. Then again, Cardi B has a definite thing for luxury makeup.
Cardi B did wear L'Oréal eye shadows to the 2018 American Music Awards.
Cardi B makes tons of schmoney, but she'll always be a Bronx girl who loves a great deal, especially on makeup. She'll wear drugstore makeup anytime, including when she has to strut across high-profile red carpets. The rapper wore the L'Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Palette ($15, Ulta) to the 2018 American Music Awards with her fabulous floral Dolce & Gabbana gown and floral hairpiece.
The red and pink shades brought out the colors in her dress perfectly, and the palette cost only $15. That's pennies to a millionaire like Cardi B, but also affordable for regular makeup lovers like us! I wouldn't be surprised at all if the rapper opted to drop products with a budget-friendly brand, as she's done with Steve Madden and Fashion Nova.
Or, you know, Cardi B could grow the Fashion Nova empire and drop its first legit makeup collection.
That will be an interesting way to further her relationship with Fashion Nova. However, if she went with another brand, it would most certainly expand her reach as an individual entity. Also, it will offer an alternative for her fans who prefer to avoid Fashion Nova after learning about its questionable ethics concerning indie designers, alleged colorism, and size exclusion.
Anywho, stay tuned for more news on Cardi B makeup. It'll all tumble out very soon!
