Sunday #14- It’s new and we want to try it…



Hello beauties,

Thank you for being here. This Sunday segment has been so successful and it’s all because of you! Every week we try to bring you new and interesting products (sometimes news just to me) so you can always be on top of the beauty news!

Now, how was your week? Long, short? I hope it went well. If you are a beautyworker follower I hope that by now you know a little bit more about us.

As you may know my name is Rita but sometimes I sign ARita just because I’m also Ana (when my mom uses my full name- Ana Rita- I know I’m in trouble. Does this happens with you too?). But my friends/family always call me Rita! I’m almost 28 years old (December 3th is coming) and I cannot believe how fast this past year was.

I love sugar and glitter and everything that shines (my inner crow)- I’m a girlie girl. I have combo skin, slightly dehydrated (now, not so much) and by now my big issue is my dark under eyes (a common problem for us, common mortals).

I’m writing all these things about me because every week I write to you and sometimes it seems that this is a conversation on just one side and I want to know more about you too, beautie. Like, what’s your favorite product to what’s your dog’s name! My dog is name is Pipoca, this is a Portuguese word that means Popcorn. She’s a French bulldog (if you are curious, check our Instagram page), and I love her (I really do!)

See, now you know a little bit more about me! A curiosity that you may not know is that both me and Joana, are pharmaceutics. We knew each other at University and we both love makeup and skincare.

I always liked makeup but this year was my turn over where I went from liking to love it- I’m still learning. But what I really like is to try new and interesting products and then give my opinion, what I like and what I don’t. And that’s the main reason for having this blog.

Without further delay, here are the choices for this week. Once again, I apologize (or not) for the glitter but we are in the holiday season. Glitter and sugar are part of the recipe!
