Full coverage foundation has been feeling too heavy lately – I’m in for a more natural look, so I’ve been sampling a lot of tinted moisturizers lately. I tried Stila’s Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer in Light, since I’m a big fan of the brand in general and hoped it would measure up to BeneFit You Rebeland Sugartint.
The color was a perfect match for my skin (fair with slightly warm/yellow undertones), and I was impressed with Stila’s choice of different shades, since some tinted moisturizers who shall not be named offer only one or two color options. The product blended seamlessly with my skin, and though it seemed thick, it didn’t feel heavy to wear. (It was just the teensiest bit sticky, though.)
Keeping on the tinted moisturizer theme, I tried Sugar Cosmetics’ Sugar Tint oil-free tinted moisturizer and I’m a bit confused. How exactly are cosmetics companies differentiating between tinted moisturizer and foundation now? This and You Rebel were both quite thick and offered a lot of coverage (not that I’m complaining).
This product applies a lot like BeneFit You Rebel too; the texture is thick and creamy, and a little goes a long way. If you use too much, you’ll know it, and it’s not hard to do. The coverage is a lot heavier than your traditional tinted moisturizer (just call it foundation already!) – it was enough for me to wear over my undereye circles and acne. I always feel good when I wear SPF, so both products give me that “I’m doing something for my skin and I look hot” glee.
I love tinted moisturizers in general, so I decided to try BeneFit’s You Rebel Lite. I find the whole “tinted moisturizer” thing to be a bit of a misnomer for You Rebel Lite, as this product has the consistency and coverage closer to a light foundation. And the “Lite” isn’t an indication of texture, either – they released this version after complaints from fair-skinned babes that the original You Rebel was a bit too dark, so the name is all about the color. It’s not any less thick and creamy than the original.
