A Girl Used Her Boyfriend's Balls As A Beautyblender And May Have Just Started A New Instagram Trend

Apparently it was a pretty good blender.

Posted on

This weekend, Hines and Richards were hanging out and messing about together. After showering, Hines was doing her makeup and Richards decided to make her laugh with, well, his balls.

"He's always messing with me so he started putting his balls on my head," Hines told BuzzFeed News. "I made a joke about using them as a beauty blender and we literally just looked at each other and started laughing and made the video from there."

Hines initially uploaded the video to her finsta account. When it got a good response, she shared it to Twitter. Since being posted yesterday, the tweet has been retweeted over 20,000 times.

The tweet gained the attention of makeup artists Manny Mua and Bretman Rock.

And of course, there was an important question which needed answering.

@Ayyeee_maddy girl yes i was so surprised

Hines said she didn't expect the reaction she's got to the video, and isn't really bothered by any negative feedback she's got.

girl i used my mans ballsack as a beauty blender i think jokes come very easy to me https://t.co/PA9iel22SC

"I've gotten a lot of negative reactions but it doesn't bother me much because the amount of positive things people are saying to me make it worth it," she said.

im sad for the ppl who are genuinely upset about this because u clearly haven't reached this level of comfort in ur life and that just sucks

"I'm getting DM after DM from girls telling me I'm inspiring for being so carefree and confident and so many people love how comfortable my boyfriend and I are together, it feels really good TBH."

she funny af😂😭 i wanna be like her when i grow up. she so happy and comfortable with life https://t.co/X2DfGpEwD5

And in case you were wondering, Richards is pretty chill with the attention his, er, "fellas" are getting.
