Cardi B Waxed Her Bikini Line With Veet And Shared It On Instagram

It’s tough times everywhere. And by everywhere I mean everywhere.

On top of everything, the current pandemic has kept so many of us away from our regular beauty treatments which has meant that for months so many of us have had to do without the very personal waxes and hair removal prosses that we all invest in so religiously. Cardi B knows this truth and opted to embark into the world of DIY hair removal. And fortunately for us, she documented the whole process.

Recently the rapper shared a clip of herself doing a WFH AKA a wax from home and things got wild.

“Guys, wish me fuckin’ luck,” Cardi asked users in the post as she showed off a bottle of Veet 3 in 1 Gel Cream. “I hope I don’t burn my pussy off.”

Anyone whose done a wax from home knows that the experience is never very pretty and for Cardi, it wasn’t much different. The rapper documented the process for her Instagram stories and revealed that she didn’t get very far in the process.

To follow up, she tried Veet, a hair removal cream that is supposed to painlessly dissolve the hair shaft, as opposed to yanking it out.

And it looks like things got along pretty smoothly. Cardi B called the experience “a positive thing” that she discovered thanks to quarantine. In fact, she went as far as to describe the process as “a positive thing” she discovered in quarantine.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with growing out your hair and letting it be free, no matter where your sprouts are located. BUT if you’re like me, you might not feel quite so comfortable and are likely desperately wishing you hadn’t taken your easy access to wax salons for granted. So, how to deal?

We scoured Instagram and Youtube for the best at-home wax kits and tips for Brazilians. Check them out below!

Get a good exfoliator.

GLOSSIER.COM

According to P&G’s site Reward me, exfoliating helps soften body hair and opens up hair follicles. Doing this before a wax will make the process easier and less painful.

Plan for the pain.

People don’t cringe at the sight of Steve Carrel getting a wax in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” for nothing. Waxing HURTS. But the process can be made a bit more pleasant if you take a painkiller like Alieve half an hour before waxing and if you apply a numbing cream to the area you want to wax. And don’t be silly by trying to wax during or a few days before your period!

Don’t let yourself sweat.

Make sure you keep the area dry and clean during removal. Do so by avoiding creams and moisturizers and instead apply baby powder. The powder will make the removal process all the easier once your done and have strings of wax left over.

One of the top reviewed sugaring kits on Etsy.

“At home sugaring success! I would have never done this at home if it wasn’t for COVID. Now, I don’t think I’ll ever need to pay a salon again! This is a quality product!” – Etsy review.

BrownSugarShop Body Sugaring Paste

This news my first time sugaring ever (I’ve brevet waxes either) all things considered I think it went well. I definitely think next time I’m going to leave the sugar I’m not using in the fridge to help it stay stiffer longer when I use a new piece.” – Etsy reviewer.

And there you have it. Now, let’s not fool ourselves, waxing on your own will likely be way less pleasant and much more difficult than it is at a salon, but it is possible! Hang in there, Sis.

Cardi B Tells Joe Biden to Get ‘Spicy’ in a Series of Videos Posted to Her Instagram

The internet’s most famous political commentator, Cardi B, did not hold back when it came to expressing her opinions of Tuesday night’s presidential debate.

The rapper, who is known almost as much for her political activism as she is for her music career, took to Instagram to give live commentary on the hectic debate (which was widely-regarded as a “sh*t show”)

Throughout the series of videos posted to her Instagram account, Cardi raged at the television, loudly refuting Trump’s lies and condemning his un-presidential behavior.

She also relayed a special message directed specifically at Joe Biden and his team, in which she told him he needed to get “spicy” to combat Trump’s bullying behavior.

Joe you better get fuckin spicy

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

“I’m letting y’all know right now: tell Joe to get aggressive. When [Trump] talks over Joe, he better start like, ‘Excuse me! I’m talking. I’m talking!'” she advised. “Don’t let this man pick on you. He just wanna do a show. So you gonna give him a show. Give him a show! This is your time to shine, Joe! Kamala Harris, she used to get spicy in the debates. You better get spicy!”

Cardi’s video series on the debate covered everything from the economy…

Like let’s talk about the economy recovery!

After Trump began to brag about how he “built the greatest economy in history,” Cardi quickly set the record straight. “This is the thing about when Obama became president: the economy was already down, so all those eight years, he was building it up,” she explained. “So when [Trump] became president, the sh–t was already good.”

To police reform…

Hold on yall …..I’ll be back

She agreed with Biden’s assertion that “the vast majority of police officers are good, honorable, decent people.” “People are trying to make it seem like people hate cops,” she said. “Nobody hates cops. We just hate the bad cops. There’s gotta be something to fix the bad cops, like a law.”

To taxes…

Of course, Cardi was still very heated at the recent news that President Trump only paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016. She became infuriated when Trump claimed the report wasn’t true. “That’s the wrong answer!” she screamed. “You tell him that you paid $750 in taxes! I pay more than that!”

To climate change.

When asked what his stance was on climate change and environmentalism, Trump responded with a pie-in-the-sky answer saying: “I want crystal clean water and air. I want beautiful, clean air.” Cardi had none of that, responding, “So why did you cancel all those climate change plans?”

But of course, like millions of Americans, she was both frustrated and disgusted with how the debate seemed to quickly devolve into a circus.

The debate became hard to watch with Trump yelling over Biden and Wallace scrambling to keep any semblance of order. And of course, Trump ended up resorting to ad-hominem attacks and name-calling, insulting Biden’s intelligence and picking on his son, Hunter Biden, for previously struggling with drug addiction.

The latter insult especially ticked Cardi B off. “For Trump to [insult Biden for his son’s drug-use] was such a low-blow,” she said in a post-debate video. “Especially to people that have to turn to drugs for comfort. And a lot of his f—–g supporters turn to that s–t as well, so that was so unnecessary and gross.”

At the end of her Instagram tirade, Cardi posted an exhausted-sounding video saying: “I wish that Joe Biden would’ve spoken to me before that debate because I would’ve told him to roast [Trump’s] ass. And I got jokes under my belt.” Who knows? Maybe Biden will take her up on her offer for the next debate!

And of course, Cardi topped off the debate recap with an Instagram caption that we can all get behind: “PLEASE WE GOTTA GO VOTE!”

Sistahs!! ColourPop x Hocus Pocus Is Coming Just In Time for Halloween And I Suggest We Form A Calming Circle

Disney

If you were around in the immediate years following the 1993 release of the Halloween classic Hocus Pocus you know how much power the movie has. The Disney film starring Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker gave just about every child watching thrills and chills and followed a trio of evil and hilarious witches who are accidentally raised from the dead by a teenage virgin on the night of Halloween.

Over the years Hocus Pocus has proven to be more than just a movie obsession but also a lifestyle. After all, what is Halloween if you haven’t binged the movie more than once during the month of October?

ColourPop knows the story and that’s likely why they’ve come up with a Hocus Pocus makeup collection that will haunt your dreams until you get your hands on it.

Get ready for some tricks for your at-home Halloween treats this year because ColourPop x Hocus Pocus is almost officially here.

The brand’s latest Halloween collection is inspired by the classic 1993 movie and launches at 10 AM PST on September 30. The limited-edition collection line is made up of false lashes, and an eyeshadow palette with 15 bronze hues. It also comes outfitted with a glitter creme gel eyeliner!

What’s more, the makeup kit comes complete with eyecatching packaging that serves as a shoutout to the three Sanderson sisters and the beloved noble black cat called Thackery Binx.

Perhaps the best part of it all is that the make-up kit includes products with names that heavily reference the best lines in the movie including “Amok! Amok! Amok” and “Gather Round Sisters.”

The new line also includes very Sanderson Sister-chic shades of red lipstick.

The best part? The collection is pretty dang cute AND affordable.

The palette retails at $22, the lipsticks go for $16 each, and at $130, the entire bundle is quite a steal!

Sure, you might be stuck at home this Halloween but there’s no doubt this new collection will enchant the little children in your lives and make you the ball of your COVID-friendly Halloween bash!
