We’ve all seen our fair share of BBs, CCs & DDs (while the list keeps growing…) and it seems that every cosmetic company has found a way to put their own spin on this trend, with some coming out on top while others don’t seem to crack the surface.  Enter the new Benefit Big Easy Multi-Balancing Complexion Perfector, which they tout as being “Bigger than BB” – a big claim to make in an industry where everyone has thrown their hat in the double letter ring.

So, what are the aspects of this cream that Benefit Cosmetics say make it “bigger than BB”?

  • Balances moisture & controls oil
  • Self adjusts on skin to your exact shade
  • Perfects & evens with liquid-to-powder finish
  • Protects with SPF 35 to help prevent aging

This cream is oil-free and non-comodegenic, with ingredients that are known to balance moisture & control oil while fighting free radicals. It’s available in 3 shades – fair, light/medium and beige – which are quite blendable and easy to match since they don’t provide full coverage.

So, my take?  I love this stuff so far.  The formula is really thick and creamy and slides nicely on the skin.  They suggest applying it with your fingertips and blending in for a natural finish but I’ve been applying it with a foundation brush so it goes on smoothly and blends really well.  It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin but does a nice job of evening out the skintone and covering up minor imperfections.  Of course it’s not full coverage like a foundation but I find it to be perfect for day-to-day wear when you want a really natural look and want to enhance your skin.  As for the oil-control, this really does the trick.  I find myself shine-free for hours, especially when I couple this cream with the POREfessional products.  Oh, and did I mention is has SPF 35?? Benefit, you know me so well. There’s nothing worse than going out in the sun without proper protection for your precious skin, and this make it oh so easy to give yourself that shield.

Overall yes, I’m a fan of the Benefit Big Easy Multi-Balancing Complexion Perfector.  I’ve had really positive results so far from using it and love it for a quick and easy way to bump up my skin without stifling it.  Have you tried the Big Easy yet?

  • Maricel

    It sounds like a great product and I would love to try it. I like that it has spf. Thanks for sharing.

  • loredana marin

    No…but i think is a little pricey.

  • Susan T.

    I’ve been curious about this but I am super pale so I’m not sure that the light colour will be light enough for me. I’ll have to try a tester in store before I commit!

  • Victoria Ess

    I haven’t tried it, but I’d consider it. It’s a bit pricey for me, though, as I don’t wear foundation often.

  • Ratu Syifa

    it seems like a perfect for day-to-day wear product when i don’t wanna wear something heavy like foundation since many of bb cream give a grey tone >.< love it!

  • Sara Trojaniello

    No way, Benefit is the best!

  • Helen gatbonton

  • Joana Santos

    i tried it and didn’t like it that much 🙁

  • Natalia

    hmmmmmm. I prefer asian BB-creams more, just because they make my skin lighter, but not as mask, but the fact that it’s BENEFIT makes me try it.

  • Melinda Jana

    I usually go for Korean bb cream as some of the North American ones don’t agree with my skin, might give this a try though

  • Jasmine Patterson

    I haven’t tried this yet…it sounds great.

  • sarah sar

    Nope, not tried it yet. I mostly stick to foundations with full coverage so I’m not sure if this will work for me. I’ll look for it in the stores when I go next though.
