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.

Eh

I guess I might like it more if I hadn't fallen in love with Pur Correcting Primer. However, after using the Pur brand I have to agree with a lot of the other reviewers correct in that this product is chalky.
Oh well - that's why I love Birchbox - I can figure these things out without spending a small fortune.

Cakey

I was using Urban Decay's Naked BB cream and was very excited for a Benefit BB cream but was very disappointed with this one.
Mine smells like sunscreen. Which is fine I am a sunscreen nut to begin with but a Benefit worker said it shouldn't smell that strong.
If your skin is dry in the slightest it shows. I use a lot of moisturizer and still found flaky spots when I applied this. I don't usually wear foundation or concealer so this was way too cakey for me.

Love

I love all benefit products. The coverage is great and it does not feel heavy or thick on my face. It is the best foundation I have found so far and I have tried a lot!

Great coverage, it's not too thick and it lets your skin breathe.

Dry skin beware!
SampledPurchased

I was very excited to try this BB but was sorely disappointed. The powder finish settles into pores and is very noticeable. It exacerbated any patches of dry skin I had making my skin look flaky and very unnatural. I had such high expectations, too! Take my advice- if you have dry skin- even small patches- stay clear of this foundation.

50/50 On This One
Purchased

I really like the texture, it's not thick or heavy, does not have an overwhelming scent, and I do believe this is a great product for the right skin. Someone with combination or normal to oily skin may find this product to be their new favorite. Even though my experience with this product has been minimal, I can see where on the right skin, it will deliver all it promises. Unfortunately, I have dry skin and I find that any liquid to powder formula does not work well with dry skin.

Great for oily skin

I have oily skin and this works great for me. It blends easily with a foundation brush, and I don't need that much to get good coverage. I like the velvety texture after it is applied. Not too greasy.

Worst BB EVER

I actually love every other Benefit product I own so I bought the full size without sampling first. I will NEVER EVER do that again. $40 down the drain. Not only did it blend like chalk but that is exactly what it looked like on my face. ORANGE CHALK. I blend very well & like MOST BB creams but this was awful. It actually highlighted every flaw which I is obviously OPPOSITE the point of it to begin with.

Thank you for teaching me a very expensive lesson to never try any type of foundation, bb, or cc cream without a sample first!

Not a fan

I'm definitely not a fan of benefit face products. I fund them oily and irritating. I got dry spots and breakouts from this formula.

The Big Easy is truly easy!
SampledPurchased

This is my new go to BB cream to use when my regimen needs to be quick. I love the fuller coverage and the fact it has a higher SPF then a lot of creams. My only complaint is it is a bit dry and I usually need to use a light moisturizer first.
