Seeing as Puerto Rico is a U.S. Territory, we mostly stock beauty items that you would also be able to find in drugstores at the States. However, we do have two local brands exclusive to P.R. One of them is a mid-end brand similar to MAC called BTCH Cosmetics which is sold at their free-standing store. BTCH stands for Beautiful Trends Cosmetics House. You can browse their skincare and makeup items on their website.
The other brand, which is the one I will be showcasing today, is Bettina. Bettina started as a nail polish brand sold at local drugstores but recently expanded their line to include makeup. Their products are very affordable and most of them retail for under $10. I love their mascaras, but if you happen to be in Puerto Rico I highly suggest take a look at their blushes and brushes. Retailing for around $4, Bettina blushes are pigmented and easy to blend.
They come in 11 shades, some matte and some satin. The colors shown are Petal, a soft pink-y peach, and Azaela, a light berry. You can browse all of Bettina's offerings on their website.
