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

This is a really great foundation for oily prone skin. I need a matte foundation as I get shiny by lunch. This is one of the few matte foundations that stay matte all day and doesn't wear off. You have to apply it in small sections as it is so matte, but it is even and buildable coverage.

Really liked it!

Love the benefit brand. I'm more traditional and like the classical style and this works great for me. Would consider buying.

better than BB cream
Sampled

More coverage than most BB creams I've tried in the past, but still easy to apply and go. Works well under light foundations for extra coverage. Really love the matte finish as well.

Pretty good.

I really like this cream. Not oily or greasy. Did not cause any breakouts for me. Nice "medium" coverage. I'd like to get it in a darker color, I think I ordered it too light.

The Best!!

The absolute best! This is one of my very favorite makeup products. It goes on super light and never gives my very sensitive and moody skin any problems like breakouts or clogged pores, etc. This makes your skin look flawless.

My favorite thing about it is that you can do so many different things. I will apply it with my hands as a BB Cream for a quick cover-up and to even out my skin tone before running out, or put it underneath a more heavy foundation as a base. You can also you can layer it or more coverage.

My personal favorite for a day where I need all day make-up that isn't going to budge, like a wedding or big event at work, is to use use my favorite regular full coverage foundation than put this over it to set, as it dries as a powder.

This is also great to put over a primer or BB that has some shimmer to it, as once again that powder finish will let that glow shine through, but keep you from looking sparkly.

I will say that even the fair shade has a bit of a yellow base to it (i'm more pink in tone) and so you have to make sure you're really blending to not get an ombre face to neck look.

The other best thing about this is that a tube lasts FOREVER. I am re-ordering today (late Nov 2015) and still have a small amount left, but I bought my last tube in June 2014.

Instant classic/must have.

Great for days when you need a lot of extra help

It has great coverage, and it goes on really smooth. I use it when I feel like I need to wear makeup - ie when I have blemishes or want my ski tone to be uniform.

Smells like sunscreen

I bought this at Ulta from a woman who had the worst makeup I have ever seen. Huge mistake. I think it is the correct color but it goes on very cakey and looks like I'm wearing a pale mask. Also smells like sunscreen which sucks. It does keep my face from getting super oily but make me look dead. I will not buy again.

Great foundation
Purchased

I've been using this foundation for months and really like it! It provides good coverage without being too dense or heavy. I put setting powder on after I'm through putting on my makeup to keep it from feeling oily. Even when my face has a breakout this covers it well and evenly.

Super smooth!

This is great for people that want coverage, but don't like the heaviness of foundations. This is also so great because you don't even need to apply powder after! One of my favorite skin products, it makes my skin so even and smooth looking! It doesn't look or feel cakey at all

Smooth & Natural

This cream went on smooth, felt light and gave me a naturally balanced look. I have very fair skin and it's hard to find something that doesn't 1 make you look like a ghost or 2 make you look like you have caked a pound of make-up on your face. I would buy this!
