For years, BB cream was something you used because you weren’t willing to commit to foundation or (lucky you) you just didn’t have much to conceal. But get ready to revise all preconceived notions. Benefit’s new “bigger than BB” formula, Big Easy, is out to redefine the BB cream category. A true medium-coverage tinted formula, it not only evens out skin, but it also controls oil, protects with SPF 35, and self-adjusts to match your unique tone. Impressed? Us too. We put all six shades of this game-changer to the test with the help of our own Birchbox staffers—find out how it fared and (bonus!) see which shade will work for you!
“I tend to steer clear of heavy foundations. This has just the right amount of coverage to mask some of the redness in my skin, but it’s still lightweight, so I can wear it every day.”
“Big Easy helps me look polished—and I still look like myself. It evens out my skin tone and is easy to apply with my fingers."
“This product blends in so nicely, it looks just like my normal skin—only much better. And it even lasts through a typical 10-hour day at Birchbox full of meetings."
“I’m a minimalist when it comes to my makeup, so I'm always on the hunt for products that will cover imperfections and still look natural. I really love the lightweight texture of Big Easy—and the SPF 35 bonus.”
“I have very oily skin, and it's tough to find the right shade because of my yellow undertones. This formula kept me shine-free all day and matched my skin color to a T.”
“It's always hard for me to find a face product that works with my skin tone. I was really impressed at how well this worked, plus I like the matte finish.”
