Benefit Big Easy

As enamored as we are with all things BB, Benefit Cosmetics is taking us above and beyond the alphabet with their latest creation: Big Easy. Like its sisters in BB cream land, the tinted formula veils fine lines and blemishes while evening out skin tone. But this next-gen version goes even further to achieve complexion perfection. The liquid-to-powder formula glides on smoothly like a cream but dries to a shine-free finish, veiling everything from fine lines to uneven skin tone—and its velvety coverage lasts all day. Plus, your skin will have the benefit of SPF 35 protection. What's more, the formula comes in six versatile shades.

Great Product

Unfortunately most people reviewed the size of their sample instead of the actual product. Le sigh.

I bought a full size in "light" and I love it. I don't care for thick, full coverage creams and so many "BB"esque creams are far too "dewy" for my combination/oily skin. This is exactly the product I was searching for. It says to put product onto moisturized skin so I used Philosophy's Clear Days Ahead BHA with moisturizer first.

Big Easy blended smoothly and evenly. I love that it sets to a super soft powdery finish. All that and SPF 35 as well. This is my new favorite and will definitely keep purchasing. If it hadn't been for that tiny yet full of potential sample from Birchbox I wouldn't have found this. Thanks Birchbox.

The Best!!

The absolute best! This is one of my very favorite makeup products. It goes on super light and never gives my very sensitive and moody skin any problems like breakouts or clogged pores, etc. This makes your skin look flawless.

My favorite thing about it is that you can do so many different things. I will apply it with my hands as a BB Cream for a quick cover-up and to even out my skin tone before running out, or put it underneath a more heavy foundation as a base. You can also you can layer it or more coverage.

My personal favorite for a day where I need all day make-up that isn't going to budge, like a wedding or big event at work, is to use use my favorite regular full coverage foundation than put this over it to set, as it dries as a powder.

This is also great to put over a primer or BB that has some shimmer to it, as once again that powder finish will let that glow shine through, but keep you from looking sparkly.

I will say that even the fair shade has a bit of a yellow base to it (i'm more pink in tone) and so you have to make sure you're really blending to not get an ombre face to neck look.

The other best thing about this is that a tube lasts FOREVER. I am re-ordering today (late Nov 2015) and still have a small amount left, but I bought my last tube in June 2014.

Instant classic/must have.

Surprising
Sampled

I usually do not like liquid foundation. This product surprised me because I ended up really enjoying it. It covered and smooth and felt like powder! Great product!

Just ok
Sampled

Pros: Stays matte all day, has SPF, blends easily
Cons: Little to no coverage, not very moisturizing, accentuates dry patches of skin
The color seemed a little light at first, but eventually darkened to the correct shade with wear. It has the consistency of a thick BB cream, but didn't do much to cover light freckles.

unsure even after sampling
Sampled

I'm kind of neutral on this product. Sample was not enough to use recommended amount. In my opinion, it doesn't really cover redness on my cheeks

Coverage was too light
Purchased

The coverage wasnt enough and the "powder finish" brought out the flaws in my dry skin. Didnt work for me!

Heavy for Summer
Purchased

Great coverage and goes on smooth. It was just too heavy for me since I live in a hot and humid region.
