Per TMZ, the Grammy-winning rapper has her sights set on making a splash in the beauty industry with a variety of products. She reportedly wants to have “cosmetics, fragrances, haircare, skincare, nail polish,” and more under the Bardi Beauty umbrella.

According to the legal documents, Cardi signed the papers with her legal name, Belcalis Almanzar, as CEO of Washpoppin.

This is not the first time that Cardi has hinted at entering the Beauty field. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight from 2019, she was asked, “When is the beauty line coming?” by an E.T. anchor. She responded with a little laugh before saying that it should be coming “very soon.”

She assured, “it’s something that I want to do.” With that interview, it’s evident that expanding into beauty has been on the “WAP” singer’s mind for quite some time.

Celebrity beauty lines have increased in popularity over recent years. From Rihanna‘s successful Fenty brand to Alicia Keys and J.Lo dipping into skincare and make-up, beauty seems to be a great way for celebrities to grow their brands and connect even more with their fans.

Cardi has already had an impressive 2021 so far. From her latest single “Up” to her highly publicized Grammys performance with Megan Thee Stallion, the rapper seems to be just getting started. She also broke a major record in March, becoming the first female rapper to have a song go diamond (“Bodak Yellow”).
