Benefit Cosmetics | Big Easy Multi-Balancing Complexion Perfector with Before and After Shots!

It’s Benefit, so it HAS TO be amazing right? I had heard some mixed reviews on one of the newest foundation-like products to be joining the Benefit Cosmetics family, but Big Easy ($46.00) turned out to be just a wonderful product for me as I could not believe that a formula that felt so light could give me so much coverage! This is a liquid to cream formula with SPF 35 (my press sample does not have this coverage) that is also oil-free and non-comedogenic.

You can see that even though the shade 03 looked kind of dark on my hand, it actually brightens up my skin! All I am wearing is Big Easy and Benefit’s Bella Bamba in the after photo!

Final Verdict: This is described as a “cushiony liquid-powder” formula, but I didn’t really feel it as “cushiony”. It was a pretty standard BB cream-esque formula that had what I would consider medium coverage. It evened out the redness in my cheek area and brightened up my entire complexion. I tested Big Easy with and without the Benefit Cosmetics 15 Hour Primer and yes it did last longer with it on, but when I didn’t have a primer on, the only real difference I noticed was a little bit of oiliness on my cheeks which I just blotted away.

With the version in-stores containing SPF, I’d say this is a product that is worth having. It is on the expensive side though and for those of you that use Asian BB creams, I don’t think this will be enough to make you leave them behind. What I DID like about Big Easy that I preferred over some of my Asian BB creams was the matte, cream finish. A lot of the BB creams I have are dewy in finish and it’s nice not to have to use a powder to mattify my face.

For those of you who have tried Big Easy, is it “bigger than BB”?
