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.

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.

Light coverage, Perfect for Summer
SampledPurchased

I've really enjoyed using The Big Easy as my daily foundation/BB Cream. I tend to prefer a foundation with more coverage, but I am able to layer this lighter BB cream to create the coverage I prefer. I love this this BB cream has built-in SPF, it helps me to feel more comfortable when outside during the summer months. Overall, I would recommend this product to someone who prefers a light coverage with SPF.

Meh...

I wanted to love this product because I generally love everything Benefit makes. First of all the sample size was unsatisfactory--enough for one application. And it really accentuated my dry patches.

This product saved my skin.
Purchased

I love love love this product! I order it religiously. It has transformed my skin. I would constantly have issues with break outs but since this product lays so much lighter than foundation with the same amount of coverage I apply a this and a light layer of loose powder and I'm on my way!

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.
