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.

There are some good aspects and bad aspects of this product; overall it's a wash for me and I won't purchase. Note that if you don't like a matte look on your face, this isn't for you

Pros:
- four hours in and face is not looking as oily as it would w/o product
- nice texture; true cream to powder
- really appreciate the high SPF

Cons:
- definitely need to moisturize prior to applying; finishes very dry
- because of dry finish, accentuates any part of skin that's not smooth
- not a perfect skin tone match

Didn't like this
Sampled

I thought the sample size was extremely small and the product didn't see to cover my face evenly. Isn't that the point of foundation? Didn't like this at all. Would not purchase.

Good product, not enough
Sampled

I think I like this product, but I felt the sample size in my box was too small to judge. I like to put makeup samples on for a few days to see if they affect my sensitive skin, so I would have liked to have more to try. For the day I got out of my sample, I liked the texture of the product and it seemed to last long!

Don't waste your money...

The coverage equivalent of this product is like applying water to my face. Seriously. I'm REALLY disappointed with this product because I love Benefit's other products, but this one is just terrible. I applied the entire foil sample and you can't tell that I have anything on, and I do NOT need pancake applied makeup either. Big Easy is a Big Flop. I would not want this if it were free, let alone 35 dollars.

Loved it
Sampled

I can understand how this would not be for everyone, but I loved it. It was so quick and easy. It felt light during the day and blended right it. It didn't leave me feeling painted or oily.

Benefit Big Easy

Another Benefit product to fall in love with! The color I received was a little too light for me, and I found it hard to blend. But I liked the coverage and the way it made my skin look.

I was a little disappointed that this had been so hyped on the preview video, but ended up being just a little foil packet. I understand it was an "extra" but given the hoopla, it would have been nice to have a little bit more to sample - the size was barely enough for one use.

I guess...

Let me start by saying I LOVE Benefit products and I have never EVER purchased one I didn't love/make a part of my routine. I think I would love this one if the sample were larger. I didn't get enough to be able to tell if I like the coverage and if it was hydrating enough for the winter and those are two important things to me. If I had a bigger sample I am sure I wouldn't be disappointed so maybe I will go to a store to try before I buy from Birchbox!

I love benefit and this product is no different. I'm so glad I got to try it! It covered easily, minimized pores, was extremely light and worked well to mattify and control oil throughout the day. I'll definitely be getting this!
