from Puerto Rico

Verified Buyer

  • Has SPF
  • Love The Powdery Finish

Cons

  • a little bit drying

Best Uses

  • Every day

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy:

I've tried so many BB and CC creams, but this is it! The powdery finish is perfect for my oily to combination skin, and it seems to make my pores look smaller. The SPF is an added bonus. I am definitely sticking to this one for daily use!

Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy:

I purchased this product when they stopped carrying You Rebel, which I loved. Unfortunately, I will now have to switch from using Benefit products for my daily regimen. The product does not look as natural and does not apply as easy. It also can look very chalky.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy:

            I never used any kind of foundation. Until I was introduced to this. It doesn't leave my skin extra oily. I dab it over my face & blend in with my sponge. It appears liquid THEN applied on it's "powder" the SPF is 35. I found my all time new foundation. I don't put make up on everyday. So it's going to last me a long while!!

                    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy:

                    I have tried several BB creams and find them to either be too oily, or they don't provide even coverage. I am 45 and don't really have problem skin- except summertime humidity makes oil a problem. I also get pretty dark in the summer and have always struggled to find the right lightweight coverage, and this is perfect. It goes on smooth and even. I do use a foundation brush - it seems to give better coverage that way. I've had no issue with a film, or settling as others have mentioned. It lasts well throughout the day and does a good job of controlling oil- although it does not stop it- but I have yet to meet a product that does. I moisturizer first with Clinique dramatically different gel moisturizer for oily skin, top with this and I am good to go! Love it

                    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy:

                    Love it! Perfect coverage (summer and winter) for my oily acne-prone aging skin - not too much and not too little. I have probably about 20 different foundations in my arsenal, including Channel, Guerline, Dior, Hourglass, Armani, etc - you name it - I have it. But this one I use the most, it is so easy to apply and coverage is perfect for me.

                          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy:

                          I have used many BB creams but I am usually disappointed with the lack of coverage they supply. This was the first BB that offered up buildable coverage **swoon**
                          I usually start with an all over, finger applied, sheer application and then follow up with a foundation brush for my less than perfect areas :0
                          The results are an even tone with a matte finish ... and matte finish that LAST ALL DAY. Considering my nick name in high school was oil slick, this says a lot!
                          I am using my second bottle and I am just as impressed 3 months later as I was the first day.

                                I used this product to even out skin tone and minimize pores. It looks good in some lights, but in others the shade just doesn't meld with my skin. Part of the problem is that the shades are much lighter than other bb creams or tinted moisturizers I've tried with similar color labeling. I started with light/medium, then medium. The medium looks ashy/pale and darkens my skin at the same time in a weird way. This isn't noticeable in all lights but when it is, it's horrible. I am asian with light/medium to medium skin.

                                    This product is compatible with both The POREfessional and Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW! Apply POREfessional first to bare or moisturized skin, focusing on areas with visible pores such as the T-zone, then apply Big Easy all over the face, which serves as your tinted complexion perfector and sunscreen in one (yes, we classify it as a BB cream!). Apply and blend Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW over Big Easy for added coverage and a flawless finish!

                                    Beige may be a bit too deep and golden for you; instead, we suggest Medium.
