    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy:

    I love this product. I tested it from a free sample and was pleasantly surprised. It blends so easily and goes on smooth, finishing in a lightweight powdery substance. It provides good coverage and is ideal for daily use. I'm Asian with yellow undertones and this works really well.

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy:

    I've used this product a few times so far. The coverage is buildable. The first time I applied too much and ended up feeling like pancake. Not good for my rosacea skin IMO.

    PROS- has sunscreen, conceals redness, looks great, not greasy

    CONS- may clog pores (not sure yet, I want to try it a couple more times)

    Give it a chance!

    By Melissa

    from Virginia

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy:

    At first I hated this! But I found a great trick...

    I would give it 4.5 stars if I could! I bought a tube of this back when it first came out and was extremely disappointed. It was thick and I couldn't get my brush to work with it, so I was applying it with my fingers and that worked just "ok" for me. My issue was that every method I tried I couldn't get it to blend well into my skin. So I dropped it in the drawer and moved on. About a month ago I got a beauty blender. I was pulling out foundations to try with it and I again pulled out the Benefit Big Easy Cream. YOU HAVE TO GIVE THIS A SHOT WITH A BEAUTY BLENDER! It blended like a dream with that sponge! I only gave it 4.5 stars because it's very light coverage, but it's a "BB Cream" so it's not a huge disappointment for me but I find you can build the coverage. I dries to a powder finish and really evens out my skin tone. I love this for those light days! It does tend to cling a little bit to those dry patches, so if you have extremely dry skin you might not like this, but I have combo/oily and I enjoy it. I don't find it breaks down on my face nor does it leave me greasy looking (and I don't even have to set it with a powder or finishing spray). I really recommend using this product with a beauty blender and you will have a much better time!

    Not impressed

    By kelsey

    from Wisconsin

    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy:

    I wanted to try something new so I splurged on this. Bad idea. I need a fuller coverage foundation and this was not it. I didn't think it covered anything and definitely did not hide my pores. I will say the color was true to my skin but that's about the only thing about it.

        • Light
        • Smooth

        Cons

        • Do Need A Primer
        • Need To Set With Powder

        Best Uses

        • Looks Natural Flawless

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Big Easy:

        I absolutely love this foundation! The liquid to powder consistency is amazing! I just love the matte look it gives you. I have super oily skin and always have to touch up later in the day. I literally have flawless skin all day wearing this and never have to touch up with powder or blot my face. I find that it looks better when you apply with a beauty blender or other beauty sponge and I do apply a primer before and a powder to set after. But it is seriously the best foundation I've ever used. It looks HD in pictures, even with flash. It feels so light and almost looks natural but it gives me full coverage. I have regular breakouts and redness in my skin but you literally do not see any of it when I'm wearing this foundation. After wearing this for almost 12 hours, it still looks so amazing and does not budge or crease or look cakey. Plus it has SPF 35 which protects your skin. Try this baby out!

        My daughter is a beautiful redhead and her complexion is very fair and this matched her skin flawlessly. So happy the Ulta staff knows their stuff on makeup or my daughter would have that mask face look!

                  I currently wear bare minerals fairly medium pressed powder foundation but I find in the winter time it dries out my skin. I'm looking for something different and wanted to try this, not sure what color to purchase.

                    We suggest 05 - Beige, but we do recommend testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store to ensure it is your perfect match:

                    Big Easy is oil-free, non-comedogenic, and fragrance-free, so yes, we do recommend it even for those with sensitive 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!
