Benefit Cosmetics 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.

Not impressed!
Sampled

This foundation was way too cakey for my liking, and not moisturizing whatsoever!

Sample was WAY too tiny
Sampled

I can't even give an honest review, because the sample size was too small to cover my cheek, let alone my whole face! What I did manage to cover, however, proved that it was the completely wrong shade for me anyway, so maybe that was a blessing. I am extremely disappointed, Birchbox,

Sample so sample
Sampled

This sample was too small for even one application so I have no idea how it really works.

Not recommended for sensitive skin

I wound up returning this item. I have sensitive skin and have had great success with BB creams, but not this one. Something in the formulation caused an allergic reaction.

Sample Size too Small
Sampled

I wasn't too impressed with this product; mostly because the sample given wasn't enough to really judge if I really liked this product. That being said, what little was given I wasn't impressed; I'll stick to my regular BB cream.

THE WORST for pores!

I tried this product, and within seconds, the formula settled into my pores making my skin look like it had been stippled with tiny pale dots. It then just sat on top of my skin, and wiped off when I touched my face. Such a fail.

I did not like the coverage

I think this product is cheap. It's not a quality product and I would not recommend it to anyone

Liquid Foundation Is Just Not For Me
Sampled

I had tried liquid foundation and liquid products before for my complexion, and they have never really worked for me. THey don't cover my redness enough and they seem really heavy on my face.

I currently use a product from BareMinerals that works really well for me and is a powder. So no offense to the product or the category type, but liquid foundation/coverage is just not for me. The shade matched me well, but I just would never buy it.

Disappointing at Best

Let me start by saying I love Benefit; the packaging is gorgeous, the quality is generally high, and most products I've used have become go-to's in my cosmetic arsenal. That being said, I had high expectations for the Big Easy, and was very let down. I remembered that I had gotten a (tiny) sample in my February Birchbox when I ran out of my usual foundation, so I seized the opportunity to try something new. Maybe it's because there wasn't enough in the sample to give it a fair go, but I thought the coverage was horrible; I have clear, fair skin with redness on my cheeks, and the Big Easy seemed to have Big Difficulty covering it. Moreover, the light coverage made the fact that I was wearing makeup obvious (like there was a sheer layer of something there), which is something I do everything to avoid normally. Bummer! With all the hype, I wanted to love this product, but it fell flat.
