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.

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

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.

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!

I thought this project was great! I really want to buy it but it seems very expensive. The sample size was lest than satisfactory.

Not thrilled
Sampled

Didn't make my skin feel great and definitely wasn't moisturizing. Color match wasn't a problem. Liked the amount of spf coverage. Sample size was so small that I really can't say I have any real ability to rate performance.

Finally a makeup I feel good about!
Purchased

I am absolutely in love with this makeup! It goes on so smoothly with the cream to powder finish, and it just blends right in with my skin. I love that it doesn't leave my skin feeling suffocated like a lot of foundations. I'm in love!

I had high hopes for this product, but I have in between shades (one was way too light and the other way too dark). I had to return it.

Good

I use this more than Hello Flawless since it is a bit lighter, though I mix it with a moisturizer. It can be drying alone plus I generally don't want even medium coverage. This is really a light coverage alone and can be built up to medium when with a moisturizer, otherwise it is too drying.

Great Lightweight Foundation
Purchased

I sampled Big Easy in-store and bought it through Birchbox.

Big Easy is perfect for me as I was looking for a lightweight foundation that would cover up just minor blemishes or even out uneven skin tone. Big Easy does this perfectly. Keep in mind it is a sheer cream; I would not consider it to be a full-coverage foundation product. It is matte once it is on your face.

I noticed that you should definitely moisturize right before using Big Easy. If you have any dry patches on your face upon applying, Big Easy will only accentuate these dry areas.

I love that it has SPF. It does have that "sunscreen smell", but only slightly.

Big Easy also feels great on the face! It does feel "velvety" once you apply it, just as the product claims.
