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: Velvety-smooth and impossibly lightweight, it works to balance oil levels throughout the day for a matte, airbrushed finish that lasts and lasts. Come to think of it, they may have just coined a new acronym. BE creams, anyone?

Great Product

Unfortunately most people reviewed the size of their sample instead of the actual product. Le sigh.

I bought a full size in "light" and I love it. I don't care for thick, full coverage creams and so many "BB"esque creams are far too "dewy" for my combination/oily skin. This is exactly the product I was searching for. It says to put product onto moisturized skin so I used Philosophy's Clear Days Ahead BHA with moisturizer first.

Big Easy blended smoothly and evenly. I love that it sets to a super soft powdery finish. All that and SPF 35 as well. This is my new favorite and will definitely keep purchasing. If it hadn't been for that tiny yet full of potential sample from Birchbox I wouldn't have found this. Thanks Birchbox.

Big easy

This product is pretty cool. I pre ordered it before it launched due to the description. Love the way it goes on liquid then Finishes with a powder finish. The coverage is nice , probably a med coverage. Overall I really like it

Definitely better than BB

This stuff is magic. It covered all my imperfections and lines, but let my freckles (which I am a fan of) shine through. It had a more velvety finish than a BB. It has a great texture as well.

Sample size way too tiny to accurately review
Sampled

How can I possibly get an accurate feel for the product when the sample size is one dot of foundation that won't even cover half of my face. Why bother giving this amount as a sample if you can't even get one good application out of it to test it out?

I wanted to like it...

I loved the way it felt and the coverage offered but unfortunately the darkest shade available was way too light on my African American skin.

V Nice BB Cream
Purchased

This product has a great texture and does everything I want a BB Cream to do. My only suggestion is to check the color before you buy. I would have ordered fair and that would have been wrong for me. I ended up w light medium.

pretty dang good

I'm really picky about face products--- lots of things break me out; Big Easy went on smoothly and blended nicely, despite not being my true match.

good coverage, matte finish
Purchased

This is a good coverage makeup (medium) and leaves a nice matte, powdery finish. It is key to get the right color, however as it will leave a whitish cast if you don't.

not sure

I definitely need to buy the actual product. The sample is nice- but it isn't big enough to actually get the full effect.

Great product, a little heavy for my day to day taste though
Purchased

This product provides great coverage and goes on great with the perfect color for my skin tone. On a daily basis though I tend to stick to lighter BB creams and tinted moisturizers, so if you like minimal coverage and a light, dewy natural glow I wouldn't recommend this product. However, for nights out or days when I feel like I need more coverage (hello breakout week) this is a great product. It reduces shine and definitely delivers the velvety finish it promises.
