Please Bring This Back!
This is the BEST foundation for hot humid weather. Please bring back the lighter shades. I was told at Ulta that this is discontinued. I will buy for myself and two others every few months if brought back!
No shine sunscreen!!! Yay!
This is the ONLY BB cream + sunscreen on the market that doesn't make me look like a greasy blob (& I've tried them all!) Must be the clever 'powder' ingredient. So easy to apply, lasts all day and the best color choices out there. (I use Medium 04 for summer; Light Medium 03 in winter). Thank you Benefit - please never stop making this!
My favourite until now
I loved this product and would recommend it, so long as you do not have pale skin like me. Since they've stopped selling the fair shade, I've had to stop buying this as it no longer works with my complexion, but I will be back if the fair comes back.
Please Bring Back Fair Shade
Please bring back Fair 01 shade! Have used this product for years, however being unable to find an alternative natural colour match since late summer last year when I could no longer find stock of this colour. Have been waiting for more stock - 'Light' shade is too dark for my skin tone!
Please bring back fair.
Shades are darker than last year. Need to bring back fair and lighten up the light. Current formulation is too dark.
Bring Back Fair!!!!
I LOVE this bb cream! But why do you no longer make it in Fair 01?! Help a pale redhead out, here! It is so hard to find a neutral pale foundation - don't take away my holy grail!
I love this product. What happened to the shade Fair and why can I no longer get it at Ulta?? This was hands down my favorite foundation/bb cream. My shade is gone now and it's no longer carried at my favorite place to buy all things beauty.
My everyday wear
I love this product. I have very sensitive skin, so I found this while in search of something non-comedogenic. I do not like the feel of foundations and just wanted a light cover-up to even out my skintone and this does exactly that. I get the coverage I need while allowing my skin to breathe.
Agree the shade has changed. Please bring back the 01 Fair.
I think they have changed the shades...
Like another reviewer, i've been using this product for several years and recently picked up a new tube of my regular color (3 light/medium) only to find it to be too dark. I exchanged it for 2/light which matches my old tube of 3. I love it for my combination/oily skin. Easy to apply with fingers (no brush or sponge needed), which gives a nice evenly blended. Gives me a natural look (lets my freckles shine through!) while evening everything out with a matte finish. One step, no fuss.
Love this product!!!
Just started using this and I am hooked! This product is easy to apply and build coverage where I need it. It lasts all day, with shine in my t-zone completely hidden. Love the SPF too!!
Love this cream
It covers up everything and lasts forever.
I've used this product for a couple years and always wore medium. I was close to running out so I purchased a new bottle. I saved the old bottle for a travel bag and stared using the new one. The new bottle was a completely different shade!!! It made my skin orange. To convince myself that I wasn't crazy, I put the 2 bottles side by side and tested them. The tube itself was darker than the old one, and the makeup was definitely darker. I went to the benefit counter to see if it was a bad batch and exchange it for a new one. Before leaving i tested it and sure enough, it was darker than my original bottle. They couldn't explain it to me but said maybe benefit changed the formula. I ended up switching to light/medium so we'll see!!!
Not good for breakout-prone skin
I have very oily skin and Im also prone to break outs. I was sold this by a staff member, recommended to combat my oiliness, and went through my first one seemingly fine, however when I repurchased and used the second one I found the results displeasing. When it comes to applying face make-up I, of course after priming, would start with this but the liquid-to-powder formula left a cakey and blotchy finish in areas I would go on to apply liquids/cream - such as concealer( necessary for my breakouts) and contour. I also found it didn't do much to help my oiliness If you find this product works for you you'll be pleased to know it lasts quite a while for a small tube. Also the shade was a good match for my very pale skin.
Really wanted to love this
I adore Benefit Cosmetics and was so hoping to fall in love with this, I sampled it on my hand/arm/chin in store and bought it for myself in the fairest shade. However, I usually suffer with dry skin (not that you'd tell because I moisturise well!) but I have recently had oil round the bridge of my nose from my glasses. This just gave me no coverage at all, and clung to my dry patches whilst sliding straight off my oily bits! I think maybe this would be a good purchase for oily skin as it could possibly be used alongside setting powder, but I've used BB creams for under £5 more effective than this and I'm so let down. Such an expensive mistake.
Super love this product
I always have a struggle on finding the perfect foundation for my combination type of skin (Oily and dry). I love the Big Easy because I don't have to worry if at the end of the day my face especially my forehead looks like a frying pan with lots of oil. I've been using this for more than 2 years now and a great investment as it helps me focus on other things rather than my oily and dry face throughout my day.
Dry and papery look is not good
What a shame - even though i had a make over in store, and it looked slick, by the time i got home, the Big Easy had gone powdery and was enancing my few wrinkles. Also colour wise i had gone mildly orange - i had been given No5 Beige - which on here looks way too dark. Other products i bought were great but i had only really gone in for a BB cream! Hope to reutrn to store and replace with other product.
More color options would = 5 Stars
Love the product. A little does go a long way. It says right on the label Liquid-to-Powder, and that is true. They suggest using it with Porefessional primer but I often actually mix them together so I can spread it out a little better. Stays put. Stays matte. Love it. My only problem is the Beige matches my skin tone but is just a little too dark and the Medium is just the right amount lighter but is too pink for my skin tone. So right now I'm mixing a little bit of Porefessional with a dab of Beige and a dab of Medium. Works pretty good but I can't say that it's ideal so I'll do this for now but a similar product from someone else could easily woo me away. Give me something golden/olive in the medium range and I'll buy this for life.
Perfect BB Cream
I like to keep my makeup looking natural, and this is just perfect! It is light weight but covers imperfections with ease.
Good for light coverage
Love using this during the day for some light coverage, it is somewhere between a BB cream and foundation
Bad for combination skin.
This product is awful for combination or dry skin. It tends to cake on problem areas thus highlighting the flaws you are trying to cover.
This is dreadful!
I can't stand this product - cream to powder leaves a very cakey look on the skin. I would NOT reccomend for oily complexions. Also, the shade range is appalling. The lightest shade is too dark for my skin, and oxidises on me to make me go orange which I hate. Big Easy has very minimal coverage which is annoying when trying to blend as it just shows all imperfections on the skin. The price is so high as well - I feel like my money was wasted. Sorry Benefit :(
Would not buy again - too chalky!
I bought this for a natural look to wear to work. I find it goes on nicely and has a dewy look to it but once it dries it goes very powdery and chalky which did not compliment me at all. I don't find it provides much coverage and I actually think my skin looks better without it on. I have an oily T-zone but they rest of my face can get quite dry. I found it clinging to my dry skin which was an awful look. I also found it clung to my eyebrows. Even though I used it with the porefessional primer by benefit I found it needed re applied throughout the day. Since it is a BB cream I was expecting it to nourish and moisture my skin but it did none of that. I would not buy it again and I probably wont even use the one I bought.
My super oily & acne prone skin has never met a foundation that covers well AND stays put all day... but this WORKS. I was totally amazed & impressed by how much better my skin looked after only applying the Big Easy BB Cream. I am a mom of a toddler, and I only have mere seconds a day to spend on my appearance... so a product I can apply quickly that makes a big impact is PRICELESS. LOVE IT.
i like it!!
I've only just integrated in to using foundation....and this is the right product to use. Gives great coverage. The only negative is that it dries my skin out slightly if used by itself. Mix with Girl Meets Pearl and you have a perfect product! Thank you again Benefit x
Absolutely LOVE this product. I have been looking for a product that works with my oily skin and this is the holy grail. I use this as my foundation. I look natural and flawless. Light coverage that is build-able! I just put a light powder over it and I am good to go. I had been wearing heavier foundations trying to get a flawless look, from Urban Decay to Two Faced, to Tarte to Mac, to Origins... I have tried them all...but THIS is my favorite. I no longer have to worry about my makeup coming off on my clothes or my phone. It controls the oil and leaves my skin looking radiant, flawless, natural, glowing, and clear. ALL DAY. The first day I wore it my boyfriend told me how amazing my skin looked....So if that doesnt sell it I do not know what will! A boy noticed my makeup!
A little goes a long way
I absolutely love this! As I said, a little goes a long way and I don't eve have to use concealer to cover up any blemishes. It's not too thick on my face and I can feel barely anything at all, it's like I'm not even wearing anything on my face. It's really great and I would highly recommend it.
I was so skeptical to try this out, knowing how the other brands BB creams leave my skin, super oily. It wasn't till mum bought it that I tried it, and straight away I went to my local Benefit and bought 3 bottles! I was so impressed straight away! It left a full coverage, yet felt lightweight. I didn't and haven't used any powder and won't need too. It does what it says. I have combination skin, so I found this product worked well with both my oily and dry parts of my face. Thank you Benefit for living up to every standard with every product! The only complaint I would have would be it price, although it is worth every cent spent.
love love love!
After reading many mixed reviews I was reluctant to try the Big Easy but I am so glad that I did! Absolutely adore the finish and lightweight feel of the product! The finish is perfect for my combination/oily skin and makes my complexion look radiant without obviously masking my freckles or too many imperfections. SPF35 also eliminates my need for sunscreen underneath my makeup, and is perfect for a sunny day out when I need a little bit of coverage. I still powder ever so slightly on my t-zone and concealed areas to keep in place all day. Highly recommend for anyone needing an all in one light coverage foundation, particularly for oily/combination skin.
Best thing to ever happen to my face
I am no makeup expert, but I've tried my fair share of foundation and bb creams. Nothing has come close to making my skin as flawless as this has. Every other foundation has been too cakey, tacky, or yellow, but this is absolutely perfect. I love the powder finish, and even tho it makes my combination skin look a bit dry In some places, I can just put a bit of moisturizer on before or pat it on top and were good to go. I've only had this for two weeks and everyone at my school has been complimenting me lately. 10/10 would recommend.
A warning to those with dry skin!!
I was really excited to try this product but it was very disappointing. I have patches of very dry skin on my face and I guess I should have read the description better, but the powder finish settles into pores and exacerbates the appearance of dry skin. Very unappealing. If I had realized this foundation/BB had such a powder-y finish, I would have opted for something else. I'm sure this product is great for those of you who have oily skin, but it did not work for me at all.
Just what I've been looking for!
I've been looking for a BB cream to wear during the day, and because it got such great reviews, decided to try Benefit's Big Easy and fell in love!! My skin tends to get very oily around my nose and forehead throughout the day, and Big Easy really does control the oil! The buildable coverage is great and looks so natural. I pair it up with Benefits triple performing moisturizer and the POREfessional Agent Zero Shine and I'm good to go! I love this product and would say definitely try it if you're thinking about it!
Great for acne-prone skin!
Lets start out with the positive! This is the ONLY foundation I've used that has never, not even once, caused my skin to break out. I have fairly acne prone skin, and this product is wonderful for it. I have very few bumps anymore, but I do have discoloration/dark spots from previous acne. This product does cover up the blotchiness in my skin, and also covers up the dark marks fairly well on its own. The product also feels wonderful when blending on to your skin. Now the not so positive, if you have dry skin, you will need to moisturize the heck out of it before applying otherwise it will definitely flake off. It is very difficult to blend into the hairline, and can appear very streaky if you do not pat it with your fingers after blending, but make sure you do this while it is still wet, as it dries very quickly. Overall, I will probably purchase Benefit Bigger Than BB again tomorrow because I've almost run out.
Best thing in the world
This is a life changer. It covers up everything and lasts forever. The only thing that I don't like it comes of during P.E. Other than that I feel like I would even pay more for this product. Seriously I can not tell you how amazing it is. I got it for my birthday and have loved it since.
Great for oily skin, too powdery
This foundation did balance oil, but was so powdery that is was almost masked looking. Unatural looking and color selection was not that good. Ive yet to been wowed by benefit foundations, but I wont give up.
Perfect for every day and natural looking!
This product is a light coverage foundation which is great if you don't want to hide every imperfection, but conceal most. It has a semi matte natural finish, and it has a creamy formula that blends beautifully. Pair with a concealer to get fuller coverage. It does not require a setting powder for my dry/combination skin to stay in place, porefessional underneath as a primer works better.
Love the colour, the coverage and the feel. My only issue...
Love the colour, the coverage and the feel. My only issue is that when I applied it without a sponge it settled in my pours really badly and made my skin patchy. When I used a sponge and bounced it off my skin there were no problems with that.
BIG EASY SAVED MY LIFE... AND MY BANGS
This is perfect. I have the greasiest forehead. When i would wear my hear down to work in the morning, by the afternoon i would have to put it up because the sections of hair around my face would get so oily, it would look terrible and like i hadn't washed it in a few days. With Big Easy, I can wear my hair down all day AND not even have to wash it the next day because my forehead doesn't ruin my hair!!!!!!!!! I AM AMAZED. This product is a must if you have oily or combination skin.
I love BIg Easy. I have tried other BB creams but they have all made my face look very oily after a while. Big Easy looks natural and feels natural on my skin. I dont have a perfect complexion but I still feel that this gives me good coverage and I have no problems in wearing it during the day or for nights out. I think its great that it has such a high SPF rating. Initially I was worried about the cost and the size of the tube but as with most of the Benefit products a little seems to go along way. A tube has lasted me 3 months and that is with wearing it every day so cost wise it is actually very reasonable for a fantastic product.
Great for everyday
So I caved and bought the Big Easy after trying and getting matched for it a few weeks back. I've also ordered Hello Flawless, but expect to use that more at night than a daily product. To start, I'm pretty sure some of the people that didn't like it for dry skin may have been using it without a moisturizer underneath. I have fairly dry skin (really combination, but more towards dry in the combination), and when it was put on me at the Brow Bar (very thickly, too - could have been full coverage by the sheer amount of product used) I did notice how drying it was used alone. Since I had experience with BB creams from other brands, I wasn't really deterred and figured at worst I'd return it. Using it on my own at home, I used It's Potent for my eye area, then Moisture Toning Prep Lotion all over, followed by POREfessional where needed, THEN I put on the Big Easy. Even with my other BB creams I have used this combination to make sure my skin doesn't dry out and so that I don't need a higher coverage than a BB. Some things I really like are that it dries to a powder that is not cake-y (so long as you don't build it up too much) and that if needed, you can build it up to be more medium coverage. When you want full coverage, I'd go for Hello Flawless - you /can/ get the Big Easy to be full in coverage, but you are much more likely to be making it super cake-y to do so. I personally use it for pretty light coverage, though for times when my skin is problematic I love that it can be more medium. The finish is very nice and doesn't need a powder (since it dries like one anyways). It also works well with Benefit's lip/cheek tints. I haven't use all of them on it yet, but it's done fine with Cha-cha, Posie, and Benetint. Haven't used it with any of the Boxed powders, but I figure those will be fine. Also was good with High Beam highlighter, but haven't yet used it with any others. I'd probably give it half a star more, but it isn't a one and done product (at least for me). I didn't really expect it to be since I'm not new to BBs, but some of the advertising has made it seem like it would be. Indeed, for some people it may be fine with their skin, but not mine by a long shot. Still, very nice light-medium coverage with moisturizer under it.
Great color and coverage
I was hesitant to try this because I have dry skin and anything with a powder finish tends to look cakey on me. Not so with this one, the finish was velvety and it applied beautifully. Very easy to blend in. I have very pale skin but the color looked perfect on. Use with Stay Flawless powder to make it last all day
No powder finish!!!!
I love this foundation. It's very light and the finish in not a powder look. My favorite by far!!!
not for dry skin
i really wanted to like this product. i have wanted to try it for a long time after trying They're Real Mascara and loving it. i thought i would give this a go especially as it had sun protection in it and i have fair skin. its not for me. I have really dry sensitive skin and although this product did not irritate my skin or eyes at all, i found it very drying.
Great coverage and solution to shine
I love the coverage it gives for a "not trying too hard" everyday look and that i can apply it easily with a brush or my fingers if i'm on-the-go.
amazing oil control, just as it claims.
I received a sample of Benefit's Oxygen Wow foundation with several other Benefit products I purchased a couple weeks ago. I tried it and absolutely loved its coverage, how easy it was to apply (I used a foundation stippling brush), and was sold within two uses. However, then I started to notice that I would shine up worse than I ever have in years by midday at the latest. I was so disappointed, but then I saw the option of The Big Easy. I decided to go in and buy it (Shoppers Drug Mart, Beauty Boutique, $46) It wasn't cheap, and reviews on YouTube were generally positive, so I was expecting a lot. I have used it for a couple days now and I am IMPRESSED with how well it actually lives up to its claim to balance your skin's moisture and control oil at the same time. I can hardly believe it...even 10 hours after application (with clean fingers, I tried stippling with my foundation brush but found the coverage just looked odd)!!! No shine whatsoever, and that's coming from me, who has oily, acne-prone skin. I do find that it is quite a light coverage though; I have to build it up with a couple extra layers in certain areas of my face that need more coverage, but then again, I have acne....someone with relatively clear skin would look like a porcelain doll with this on! Absolutely fantastic for oily skin in particular; may be a little too dry if you struggle with dry skin. Light coverage, but reasonably buildable. Silky, dry, matte finish with SECOND TO NONE oil control without being drying to skin. Thank you, Benefit <3
I've looked for a great foundation for a long time, and I've always found that shades are slightly too warm, cool, dark, or light for my skin tone. It's beyond frustrating. BB creams have always worked the best because they are lighter and more adjusting to the skin, so once I saw benefit had a new BB foundation I was excited to try. This did not disappoint. It was a perfect match to my skin (fair) and I really loved the liquid-to-powder finish. It gives you that no makeup look while still evening out imperfections. I'll be buying again.
Eureka! This is foundation gold.
After using Some Kinda Gorgeous for years, I was not so sure about switching up foundations. However, for a long lasting, SPF, that will keep the shine away, this is my new best friend. I love how creamy this product is and how easy it is to apply, even with my fingers. It's very pretty and I hope this is one of those products that stays in the regular Benefit line for many years to come. I'm a true fan!
This has become my absolute beauty must-have!
I was a major fan of a top Korean BB cream brand for nearly a year, so I was a bit skeptical when the Benefit sales girl was telling me to try Big Easy. After testing 2 shades of this, we found that BEIGE was more natural for my skintone. I use a flat top synthetic kabuki to spread and blend my foundie. Being so used to the Korean brand's liquid consistency, I found the texture of Big Easy a bit "dry", or at least I thought it felt dried too quickly. Then I noticed 3 major things: (1) It blended perfectly, giving me such a natural glow, (2) my color immediately looked great, no need to wait for "oxidation" to happen so that the color adjusts to my skintone, and, most importantly (3) at day's end, I was CONSIDERABLY less shiny vs. the other BB! I only needed a quick touch-up of Porefessional powder. That definitely made it for me! The CONS: a) Price for Product: It only has 35g of product (inside a big tube!), while my Korean BB cream has 50g and is priced >$10 less. So on a per-gram basis, Big Easy definitely MORE expensive. b) Coverage: I need to put a little bit more to cover up red spots and dark circles, so that's when I need to reach out for more concealer. Will I buy it again? Definitely yes. I just won't use it daily.
I am so glad I gave this makeup a try... it is amazing! I opted for the deep beige and it blends perfectly with my summer tan. I'll go with a lighter shade for winter. It feels very light, but with a nice smooth even coverage. I have that pesky tricky combination skin and this product has worked wonders. Without a doubt the best foundation I've ever used. This was my first Benefit purchase and will most certainly not be my last. I'm hooked!
Improves your skin so much a man notices.
I love my husband. He's wonderful...just not that observant and a bit of a man's man. So I think it says a lot about the Big Easy product that on three difference occasions since I've been wearing it this man, the one who took two weeks to notice a new paint color in the living room, said, "Your skin really looks great." To say I was shocked would be putting it mildly. If Big Easy can do that for me, a 54 year old spunky woman, imagine what it can do for you younger girls!
Why such light shades...
I really do love this product - if you have a fair or light olive or Asian complexion, it's perfect for you. It goes on so nicely and has such a nice matte finish (so you don't look oily). The problem is, I got extremely tan once summer started and the darkest beige (which I had purchased) looks way too light on my face so I'm going to have to return...but I do love this product for the winter when I'm very pale. Benefit, keep in mind you have many customers not only with pale, white skin.
I am sad that You Rebel is being discontinued and that this product is being billed as its replacement. It's a fine product, but not just a tinted moisturizer, which is what I want. Worse, it is a thirty percent smaller container with a nearly as high price markup! I guess I'll just have to stock up on the old stuff while I look for a real replacement product elsewhere.
LOVE this product.
This is the best cream. I saw this and was very excited to try it. The price tag made me hesitate, but I went ahead and bit the bullet. I'm glad I did, because this is my go to product. The color is spot on for my skin tone, the cream to powder finish is fantastic- it makes you feel like you aren't wearing anything. The application is so easy, just swipe it on. I was using small amounts to try to make it last (because of the price), but you don't need much at all anyway. I still have a ton left and I've had it at least a couple months. I usually wear this under a little light powder foundation, but on those days where I don't want the hassle, I just use this and a little concealer, or sometimes skip the concealer altogether. This product is totally worth the price, and I will definitely be buying more when I eventually run out. I LOVE it!
Finally found the right product
I've tried all of the various Benefit foundation products with little success. I was hesitant to try another product until I received a product sample of Big Easy. Well am I glad I tried one more! Finally - I found something that isn't heavy, doesn't cake, isn't greasy, doesn't turn icky at the end of the day. I don't need to use much -- I apply just a little over lightly-moisturized skin on T-zone area and neck, and then use a touch of Hello Flawless powder if I need to cover redness. The tube will last a long time as I'm only using a little bit of product (it's thick so you don't need to use much). I'm a fair-skinned redhead, and found the Light to be too 'white'. So I'm using the Light/Medium and it's perfect. I've worn Big Easy through several days of humid Texas weather, and at the end of the day my skin still looks flawless, smooth, with no greasiness or cakiness. Yeah!
I have been on the hunt for a foundation that is not "cakey" but not so unnoticeable that it barely covers my blemishes. This product is perfect!! It is so light weight and feels as though you are wearing nothing! However it provides such strong coverage that it evens your complexion out! It may be a little out of peoples price range but it is entirely worth every cent!! Great job benefit--I couldn't be happier!
AMAZING FOR OIL CONTROL
I live in the Philippines, where it's always sunny, humid, HOT. I have very oily skin, the the point where I retouch almost every hour. So, I decided to invest in a product that promises, and got this Big Easy BB Cream. OH. MY. GOSH. I honestly don't have to retouch at least once throughout the whole day!! I always wear makeup for at least 8 hours a day, and this pretty much held up the entire hot day. No retouch, no small oil breakthrough. Amazing. It's a bit hard to blend (I suggest just using fingers), but it's worth a try. I've been using this everyday for a month now, and no reaction (I also kinda have sensitive skin). It looks really natural and flawless as well. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!
So easy! So Beautiful!
I absolutely love Big Easy. The fact that it's not heavy or oily and goes from liquid to a silky powder finish really makes me happy! I've finally found a foundation formula and shade that works!
Perfectly natural looking
Provides the perfect coverage and looks amazingly natural. You can use your finger tips or a brush for to apply which makes it very easy to use.
Tricky to apply
It took me a few goes to get the application of this right. I have far from perfect skin, and found that trying to smooth Big Easy on just exposed all the flaws! After a bit of trial and error, I found that just a little bit of Big Easy, dabbed over my chin, cheeks and forehead, and then patted on, worked fine, and lasted just about all day. I use Big Easy and then apply Hello Flawless with the brush, where I used to need to use the sponge.
I really wanted to try this after hearing all the hype but I have super sensitive skin so I was nervous to buy. The wonderful girls at Ulta gave me a sample of it to take home and try and boy am I glad I tried it!! Not only does it not irritate my sensitive skin, it covers my redness, and keeps me looking fresh all day long. I had yet to find a product that didn't make my face look super oily by the end of the day but this product does the trick. It dries to a nice powdery finish that lasts all day! I know people are skeptical about the price but trust me, it's worth it. A little of this goes a long way, in fact, it took me a week to use up all of the sample that I got!
Does what it says!
I tried it before buying it with a free sample at Ulta - for me, $38 is a lot to spend on a product without trying it, regardless of great reviews! But I am totally in love with it! Two days after using the sample I bought it. It has a great powder finish that doesn't make my face look caked or anything, and it covers my red tones. It lasts me all day and keeps my oily skin from making me look shiny!

my go to 'foundation' when im on the go! light weight + no fuss... thank goodness I found a bb cream that works well for me! yey! :D
PERFECTION MADE EASY
FLAWLESS SKIN, EVEN TONE, LONG LASTING, SOOOO EASY TO APPLY I could not be happier with a product. It glides on, feels lovely and lasts all day! I naturally have oily skin and after a long day at uni (10 hours) my skin has never looked better. Usually I have that shiny t-zone but now its just dewy and perfect! I will not be looking any further for a long lasting foundation, Benefit has done it again! Love my porcelain looking skin.. bene-babe for life!
All-in-one and Perfect for on the Go
While this is more on the foundation side than a moisturizer, I am still in love with it simply for it's powdery finish. I don't have to set it! I wear this when I don't feel like doing a full face of make-up like a beach day or even just a laundry day. It evens me out just enough. And, just like most Benefit products, a little goes a long way.
awesome BB cream!
I got this product several days ago and I already love it! I do apply it with a foundation brush, but it blends really easily and it gives a very natural, light coverage. If you are looking for a lot of coverage in a foundation-type product, this one isn't for you...but if you are looking for a "your skin, only better" look then this is for you! It does have SPF, which is great for your skin, but it initially has a little of that "sunscreen" smell that fades really quickly. You can easily wear this by itself, or top it with a bit of concealer and powder for a more perfected look. Great product to have for your beauty routine as the weather gets warmer and you want something lighter for a foundation-type product!
this product does not have cake face coverage like i thought it would (thank god!) i am so pleased with how it makes my skin look! the redness is gone and my skin looks airbrushed! am definitely going to buy this product again!
Great color match!
I have acne issues and i couldnt find anything that would cover well without getting oily or flaky. This works great! Covers great! Last long!
Not so great at all
I did not find it gave near the coverage it said it would. Very disappointed.
love this stuff!
Great feel on my skin. Color matches great. It's my new go to fav.
Pity I can't add another star (or heart)
I'd really been looking forward to trying this one, such was the hype. One day, at the Benefit stand, I was told by the girls that, because of the texture of this product and also my skin type, I was gonna love this, and they were absolutely right! It was also the day I had Lollitint tried on, but I already had my say about Lollitint, so back to Big Easy. Now, I'm wearing this everyday. I apply it over cleansed and moisturized skin. I love how this product looks on the face once it is applied. And I think my skin looks a little better since I've been using this. However, if there is a spot that is a little persistent, nothing like a little Boi-ing to hush it. Powder are rendered optional, you can use powder with this or not. Personally, just a very slight go at Agent Zero Shine with this will do. How much time it can save you if you want to look pretty but must make it to your work in time is one of its best things. And for someone with my complexion, it also impresses me very favourably how well the shades seem to adjust, after having tried them. Light to medium, which is the one I bought, fits me quite nicely. And even Medium gives me a very nice touch of colour without making me look too heavily madeup. The only problem might be that it is a little pricey, but I think it is worth every cent it costs.
great for oily skin
I was IN LOVE at first use, a great product for when you only have so little time to get ready, i suffer from oily skin and this bb cream helps A LOT i don't have to worry, after 5-6 hours maybe a touch up on my nose and small areas and thats it.
Enjoying the new BE
I'm a huge Benefit fan and couldn't wait to try the new BE. I used to use Honey in Oxygen Wow and Tea Party in playstick, medium in skg. I've tried them all and liked them all to different degrees. It's a little pricier then I'd like but does go on smooth, evens out my complexion, feels nice, and goes on light weight. A little boing takes care of any spots needing heavier coverage. I'm very oily so I do still need to touch up at middle and end of day. If it was a little less pricey and I didn't need to touch up due to oil it would be perfect. But in all honesty, I have yet to find anything I can put on my face that doesn't require a powder touch up mid and end of day. They're actually all good foundations. I'd say the coverage is less then the playstick or SKG, more on par with Oxygen Wow, but does a better job mattifying then Wow and evening tone where as Wow does a better job brightening. Depends on what you're looking for.
Product does what it says
Wow, I am quite impressed with this lightweight foundation. I just use my moisturizer with this and I'm done. I blend it in with my fingers doing one area at a time and dab on more on spots that need more coverage and that is it. This product replaced my primer, foundation, concealer, spf and finishing powder. I purchased the Beige and at first I thought it might be too dark but it does adapt to your own skin and it is a perfect match for me.
HG for me
Matifying but hydrating, lightweight but nice coverage (even with post acne dark spots), easy to use, high SPF, longlasting, what else can we ask for? I'm NC25 and I use Light to Medium or even Medium (I have both) Light to Medium is more neutral and Medium is more yellow. Perfect for everyday. Finally, I still use moisturizer in my dry areas, but for T zone I just use this.
i never normally write reviews but this stuff has inspired me! i don't have time for much in the morning and this goes on quick and easy and looks fab! not only that but it makes my skin feel super smooth and soft. this is my new favourite product!
So far, so good!
I just bought this yesterday, and tried it out this morning. I applied a pea size dollop and learned quickly that was way too much! This product definitely goes a long way. It's a very creamy consistency but feels light on the skin, especially as it sets into a powdery finish. It covers so well, I didn't even need half as much concealer as I generally use and it kept my oily skin pretty matte throughout the day. It doesn't have a fragrance, and blends very easily. I have acne prone, very fair skin that's prone to dryness (somehow...) and so far it has helped with the oil, kept my skin relatively flake free, and is a spot on match. I got Fair 01, and it's great! I'm really pleased with my purchase :)
Today was the first day using this product and I love it! Normally, I like a heavy coverage but this is great if you want a more natural look or if you're running late but want a little bit of coverage. You can apply more as well to the coverage of your liking. It is very easy to apply and blends very well with my skin tone.
Love! Love! Love!
I was in the Benefit store again recently (obviously) just looking around when I stumbled upon this glorious product. I asked the sales woman to try it on and I fell in love with it. I wasn't wearing any make-up and I looked pretty dull. But she put this on me and my skin looked amazing. I love the finish on this product because it is light, smooth, natural looking, and so soft. This is just what I need on days when I do not feel like putting on my liquid foundation but I want some coverage and a polished look to my face. A big plus for me is the SPF 35 seeing as I am the lightest shade, I really need it! Thank you Benefit for another amazing product!
Big Easy is a BB that packs a punch.
If you're looking for a BB that packs a punch, Big Easy is the one for you. I have combination skin, an olive undertone that makes me mildly difficult to color match and some red pigmentation in my cheeks that I like to cover, but don't care to slather my face in layers of product. Big Easy has the exact coverage with a lightweight feel that I want to tone down the redness and also color-adjusts to match my tricky skin perfectly. The only reason I gave it four stars is that it does separate a little on my nose (the oiliest part of my face) after a few hours of wear, but that's easily fixed with a quick dusting of Agent Zero Shine on my lunch break. Overall, I'm in love and definitely recommend.
Easy to use
It added one more fair layer on my skin. And it is easy to apply and blended so smoothly. I used 4 medium, which is perfect for not too dark skins. Its really making BIG difference and EASY to use.
The perfect BC "Beauty Cream" EVER
I am obsessed with Big Easy! Velvety texture, cream to powder finish, keeps the skin hydrated while controlling oil, what's not to love? Pro tip: Use with Hello Flawless Foundation Powder to set and for more coverage, or use with Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation to get the coverage of the Hello Flawless liquid, with the matte finish that Big Easy provides! xoxo
bigger than bb
I'm a regular foundation user, but I'm in between shades so I usually have to mix to get the color just right. Big Easy on the other hand adjusts perfectly to the right shade. It also has a nice powder finish so I don't need to apply powder on top. Super convenient if you're on the go!
It's sooo easy!
I think I have found my perfect foundation, I applied this product in less than 1 minute and my skin looked and felt amazing! I am ivory in hello flawless oxygen wow however with big easy i am 02- light. The shades definitely are on the lighter side, however it does self adjust very well. With big easy, I can eliminate using both liquid AND powder foundation from my makeup routine--big easy does it all! My own beauty tip: use total moisture before you apply big easy and your skin will never look and feel so good.
Super lightweight coverage!
I was an immediate fan of big easy - bb cream was never part of my daily beauty ritual, usually just moisturizer and foundation. I'm impressed with how lightweight this product is yet the coverage is on point! I am definitely the "light" shade. I tried "fair", but it was WAY too light on me, even though I am pretty fair. For comparison, I wear the Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow in Ivory. This product really is easy to apply and I love the "barely there" feel.
Best BB yet!
I've tried a LOT of BB creams but they usually don't offer enough coverage or are too chalky with the bad sunscreen smell. The Big Easy, on the other hand, provides sufficient coverage. Plus, the product goes on nice and easy with a liquid to powder finish which makes my skin feel sooo smooth. Love! Shades seem to be run lighter though. I usually wear Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation - Petal, but was a 03 for Big Easy.
lightweight and blends easily!
I don't use foundation regularly so I was pretty hesitant to try this. But it really is more lightweight than a foundation, and the liquid to powder feel works as advertised! I have a yellower/olive undertone and the "medium" worked well for me. Beige was a little too orange for my skin. Give it a try!
Big easy is great - it's easy to apply and blends smoothly. It has natural coverage that evens out my complexion without looking like I have heavy foundation on. I was unsure whether I was shade 1 or 2 (I'm ivory in hello flawless oxygen wow) but was relieved when shade 2 adjusted per my skin tone when applied. I applied after my moisturizer and didn't feel shiny at the end of the day. LOVE!
