Review: Benefit Big Easy

Hi Beauties! I have tried from Benefit only their They're Real mascara and it was time to try something else from them. Last month I picked up their Big Easy BB cream (35 ml, 38 EUR). I don't like to wear foundation when the weather gets hot, so BB cream is something that feel more comfortable on skin, then foundation.

What they say:
Our multi-balancing complexion perfector contains ingredients known to help balance moisture & control oil...soothing, comforting and fighting free radicals. The cushiony liquid-to-powder formula self adjust to your exact shade. It melts in like a cream, yet finishes lightweight & velvety like a powder to even out skintone and conceal imperfections. One & done...BIG EASY saves the day
Benefit Big Easy comes in 6 different shades. You can find shades from fair to deep beige. I bought mine in shade fair and it fits my skin tone perfectly. It comes in a squeeze tube, which I like, because you have more control how much product come out. I find its best to apply with my fingertips then with a brush. I like the result I get when I apply it with my fingers. It also has SPF 35 and PA+++, which means your skin will be protected from the sun when you wear it :)

Me without any makeup :)

Wearing only Benefit Big Easy BB cream

At first I didn't like Big Easy BB cream, because it didn't give me that much coverage as I wanted. I didn't want to apply it more, because I was afraid it would feel too heavy on skin, but I was wrong. I did apply a bit more and the coverage was much better and it still felt like nothing was on my skin. As you can see on the picture above, my skin is not as shiny as without the BB cream. It even hides my pore a bit, not totally, but I'm happy with the coverage it gives me. It does a great job keeping me matte through out the day and I love the it has liquid to powder finish. Its not scented product, so beauties who don't like scented products can enjoy it too :)

Have you tried Benefit Big Easy BB cream? Do you like it?

Thanks for reading! :)


  1. I really want to try this, it sounds perfect for my oily skin! Your skin looks lovely :)

  2. Oh you read my mind! I've been wanting to buy this bb cream for more than a month but resisted and this review just makes me want to buy I more! I'm going next saturday to a benefit workshop and I don't know if I will be able to resist!
    Great post!

  3. @ Jess - Thanks Jess :) xo's

    @ Alice - I think I wouldn't be able to resist, but good luck ;) xo's

  4. I have this and liked it a lot. I think it is better than their other foundation. I like Benefit products a lot though.

  5. I only tested it in store but it seems great and perfect for summer - matt effect was just WOW! I'm just a little bit worried that it may dry out my skin because of that and I'm prone to dryness, what do you think Laura? X

  6. @ Marie - I haven't tried their foundations, but this is amazing! Now I wanna try more :) Thanks for visiting! xo's

    @ Mademoiselle Lala - I think if you moisturize well before applying it it will be fine. xo's

  7. I love BB creams. I have a drugstore one but want to invest in a more high end brand. x

  8. My parents picked this up for me in Duty Free a few weeks ago. I can't wait to give it a proper try and see how it works for my skin, fingers crossed!

  9. @ PR Fashion Beauty - I have tried only high end ones. Can you recommend a good drugstore BB cream?

    @ Sophia - Hope you like it :)

  10. Thanks Laura, I'm gonna get it for sure then! :) X

  11. You look great with or without the BB cream on! I always mix a little moisturizer with my make up so it doesn't go on thick.

  12. I have oily skin so I am always looking for makeup that will help with it! The Dior Nude BB cream feels pretty nice, but I want to try this one!

  13. @ Mademoiselle Lala - Hope you like it ;) xo's

    @ EstheticGodess - Thanks :) I do that with foundations which are bit dark for me. Thanks for visiting! xo's

    @ Shimmery - I have heard good things about Dior BB cream and I really wanna try it. Thanks for visiting! xo's

  14. This looks beautiful on you! Your skin is nice without makeup though! I have not tried this BB cream, but I prefer BB cream when it gets warmer also!

  15. Thank you :) BB creams are great for summer! xo's
