Benefit seem to be constantly on the ball with their product releases and one of the newest ones, Big Easy, might be the dream base some of you are longing for! Benefit claim Big Easy is 'bigger than a BB cream' and better than other formulas that we have all seen hundreds of times in the beauty world. It balances moisture and control oil whilst having a natural finish. I've never been that big a fan of BB creams as I prefer something with a fuller coverage but I've been reaching for Big Easy more than I thought I would!

Benefit packaging seems to be a love/hate thing. Personally I love it, it's refreshing to see a brand not being so serious. Big Easy has a bit of a circus theme and I was incredibly lucky to receive the most amazing box of goodies from Benefit to celebrate the launch.

The formula is thicker than you'd expect and very creamy. It blends into the skin easily and feels velvety until it dries to a powder like finish. It's light weight and has a matte finish that looks very natural. Benefit recommend applying Big Easy with your fingers but I like to buff it into my skin with a brush.

This is not something you should go for if you have dry skin as it will cling to dryness. My skin is fairly normal at the moment so I can get away with this on good skin days. It covers most of my redness and evens out my skin tone well. It wont cover any major blemishes, but I feel this suits my skin best on the days it is behaving and wouldn't reach for it if my skin wasn't that good. I thought the matte finish might leave me looking dull or dry my skin out, but it's the complete opposite! I look awake and healthy when I use this.
It's a great base for the warmer weather and has SPF 30 to keep the skin protected. The oil free formula and matte finish keeps the shine away and would be great for oily skin types.

I really enjoy using this, it's a simple product that takes good skin and makes it look better.
It's pricey at £27.50 but worth the investment if you like a natural coverage and have normal/oily skin.
Available in 6 shades, I'm shade Light. Being very fair it's great that they have shades for paler skin tones, there is even one lighter called Fair.
It's going to be a must have for oily skin tones or those who like a matte finish!

  1. I'd definitely need a lighter shade, these all look quite orange toned, are there any with pink undertones?

    1. I don't think there are any specifically with pinker undertones, they are quite generic shades but are fairly adaptable. Definitely worth getting colour matched in store and trying it out before buying!xx

    1. Definitely, bases are probably the most important part of your make up so I am always willing to consider spending more on them!x

    1. I'm very pale and Light works well for me so the shade lighter than that might work for you! :) x

  6. I like the shade range and it looks like a great product but it's just a little pricey.

    1. It is pricey but worth the money if you prefer or need a more matte base, you only need a tiny amount too! :) x

    1. That's such a shame but of course things like this do not work for everyone!x

  9. I think it doesnt work for everyone because its for more normal/oily skin as it makes dry skin look horrible
