Tinted Moisturizer Heaven

Make-up for the lazy girl..... Benefit has a two tinted moisturizers called You Rebel and You Rebel Lite. Available in two tones this magic in a tube gives wonderful colour and tone and is especially for those non savvy make-up users. It has a SPF 15 and is very easy to apply and blend. This complexion enhancer is ideal for the non-make-up days we all have, to even out and add some colour. The Lite edition is for extremely light pale skin.

I recently purchased the You Rebel in the red tube. I got home, opened it, decided it looked too dark after all, and added it to my kit for shoots. The other day I gave it a second chance. Blended really well I looked like I had a slight tan and smooth airbrush finish on my face.

If your skin tends to go towards the oily side, use only You Rebel, no moisturizer when applying. It is applied as you would your moisturizer, in sweeping massaging movements. On the skin it feels exactly as a moisturizer would and with a colour that screams "healthy". Here's a tip to applying with a twist: Take a concealer and apply to areas that needs the most coverage. Dot You Rebel in areas where less coverage is needed. Now that you look like a Paintball victim, take a blending brush (for instance a MAC Stipling brush) and buff/blend the product until even, et voila!

You Rebel and You Rebel Lite contains Aloe, for it's soothing properties, Vitamin A for it's anti-ageing benefits and Vitamin E known for protecting the skin from free-radicals.

All Benefit products are available exclusively at Woolies.


  1. Will it work on my blemished face?

  2. Farmgirl, if you are fanatic about the kisses you got from the sun, rather don't use a tinted moisturizer. Opt for something with a little more coverage. I'll so a skin analysis when I see you xxx

  3. sounds amazing! I love benefit products! I'm a huge fan of their hollywood glow and coralista blush! Will try this!

  4. Oeh, I like. Skin analysis sounds very gooed! What about a total make over....:-)

  5. Farmgirl, of course, you never even had to ask ;-)
