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

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.

O.K.

The sample did not even give me enough to cover my whole face so I don't think I got the full effect. It worked fine with concealer underneath. Great for every day light wear, this product is not for someone who wants heavy coverage. I don't know if I would buy this.

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.

Cream to powder

I love this BB cream! It goes on easily (with my beauty blender) and provides coverage but isn't too heavy. I use to have to finish with a finishing powder with other BB creams but this cream dries as a powder for a flawless finish

Okay coverage
Sampled

This BB cream didn't blow me away. It provided nice coverage and matched my skin, but it wasn't super moisturizing or really "perfecting." It's definitely not a full-coverage option.

ashes to ashes after time

I got this BB cream last summer to try and work with my skins sensitivity without having to pack on the products. Initial coverage was wonderful, not heavy enough to cake, and with a matte finish that left me looking like I had full coverage makeup on, without the heavy feeling.
Fast forward to winter and the once wonderful creme to powder BB cream had started to settle in clumpy, translucent applications, and turned chalky/ashy . I ended up having to throw out the remainder of the product before the year was up.

If you're someone who goes through foundations quickly, this is a great product, but if you use products sparingly, skip this quick to age bummer.

LOVE THIS BB CREAM FOR A DAYTIME LOOK WITH NOT MUCH TIME TO GET READY.. OR EVEN FOR A DAY OUT AT THE PARK OR THE BEACH. IT COVERED MY ACNE SCARS AND REDNESS VERY WELL WHILE NOT LEAVING A THICK HEAVY RESIDUE ON MY FACE. IT WAS A PRETTY FINISH THAT DID NOT NEED A SETTING POWDER!
