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.

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.

I just purchased this bb cream with my birch box points. I absolutely love it! It's light weight but give me the coverage I need.

Finally!

As a very pale gal, I've spent more time and money than I'd care to admit searching for a blendable BB cream. Finally found it with Benefit's Big Easy liquid to powder "bigger than BB" cream. I purchased it in 01-Fair shade and it works great!

So glad I bought this!

The application and ultimate feel of this product is so great. It feels like nothing after application, which is just what I like. And the coverage is perfect for me: not too heavy, but evens out my skin tone. Seems to help with the blemishes I get, too.

Meh...

I received the wee-sample of this (that I think may have been enough to cover a dolls face), so, I can't really say how well this product works because I only tested it on my cheek. I also don't use face make-ups (foundations, bb/cc creams, etc.), so, I don't know how strong my opinion is. It seemed like a nice product, light-weight, good coverage, but it didn't wow me enough to want to buy a full size.

Great product

I have really pale skin, so finding a powder/foundation that matches my skin tone is near impossible. However, Benefit's Big Easy has a ton of options, and from what I've found, you can get close and be okay. So, the shade I got wasn't exactly my color, and I had my doubts, but when I put it on, it didn't look bad at all. The only, and I mean only, problem I had with this product would be that it dried my skin out just a little. I have dry skin, and this made it just a little flaky. My advice if you have dry skin is to use a sponge or fingers to apply, not a brush (or at least, that worked for me).

Nice, but not for me.
SampledPurchased

The foundation was nice, and finished like a power. I wasn't crazy about the shade I picked (my own fault), and didn't love it enough to try again in a deeper shade. In my opinion, not the best value for the price. However, I tend to like liquid foundations that are a little more on the dewy side of matte. If you like foundations that finish like a very matte powder, this could be for you.

A little drying but overall good BB cream

The coverage is great and I love both BB creams (I don't do heavy foundation) and Benefit but this felt a little drying on my skin, especially in the winter when the wind, cold and heating indoors zap the moisture out of my skin no matter what I do. But would highly recommend for people with skin that doesn't dry out as easily.
