Benefit Big Easy, multi-balancing complexion perfector

When this circus themed package arrived I was pretty excited, although I wish they wouldn’t send naughty sweet treats! Lions and candy floss aside, this package brought Benefit’s new release, Big Easy, which is a light to medium base which resembles a BB Cream.

If I’m honest, I’ve never been a fan of BB or CC creams as I like a full coverage base; I like to cover up my spot scars and pigmentation, but after using this new Benefit product, my views may have changed.

This base is not one for the dewy faced lovers as it has a liquid to powder consistency and it settles with a lovely matte finish (my personal favourite). I didn’t find this too light in terms of coverage, I think it definitely sits more at the medium spectrum but it has that really natural look so great for those days when you don’t want it to look like you’ve tried too hard! I find it’s best applied with fingers and then finished with a brush, my personal choice being the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.

Although I can’t agree or disagree, Big Easy has been likened to the Jouer Matte Moisture Tint so if you’ve ever coveted that but been unable to get your hands on it, maybe you could give the Benefit Big Easy a go. I found Light Medium was the perfect shade for my pale complexion but there’s six shades to choose from so I’m sure there’s one for everyone. It’s only available online at the moment but by mid-April you’ll be able to find it in stores. My only gripe about Big Easy is the packaging; I just don’t think it’s quite hit the spot and if I’m honest, it looks a bit like it was rushed, but the product inside certainly makes up for it.

Have you been interested by the Big Easy?


  1. That package is so cute! I've seen a few reviews of this but they've never really sold it to me, unlike yours. Think I might need to try this out when it hits the shops!
