For the girls and guys wanting a little lightweight coverage this Spring may I present the new Benefit Big Easy Multi-Balancing Complexion Perfector ($38).
Available in six shade selections Benefit’s new Big Easy Multi-Balancing Complexion Perfector is one of those products that takes your already good skin and makes it better. Not quite a BB Cream and definitely not a foundation this lightweight product perfects skin while protecting it with an SPF 35 and a formula that balances moisture and oil!
Products like Benefit Big Easy Multi-Balancing Complexion Perfector are what makes me love the brand so much. This is simplicity at its very best!
At a glance Benefit Big Easy Multi-Balancing Complexion Perfector scared me as there are talks of a liquid to powder finish and an oil controlling formula….already my dry skin is shaking in its boots!
But apparently this new foundation product balances the best of both worlds. It has a rich creamy texture with a slight fluffiness to it that absorbs easily into skin. It evens out skin tone with a sheer layer of color while brightening my complexion and easing dullness. The lightweight finish is satiny and smooth and doesn’t adhere to my drier area yet keeps the shine away from my T-Zone where from time to time you’ll see a bit of oiliness on a warmer day. Apparently it self adjusts to your exact skin tone. I tried three shades and I must say both the Light (02) and Medium (04) respectively darkened slightly and lightened a bit where I needed it. The wear time is around five hours before I saw some fading and at around hour six I felt I needed a touch up.
There are a few things I love about products like this….
First off the keyword here is natural. This takes already good skin and creates a more even, uniformed finish that’s brighter and healthier looking. If you suffer from issues like dullness but don’t have acne, blemishes, redness, or major issues to conceal you’ll enjoy the lightweight texture and coverage this provides.
Secondly, the lighter texture makes it a great pick when the warmer Spring and Summer weather arrives and the addition of an SPF 35 is great as well (however, I suggest using sunscreen under it none the less).
Thirdly, the simplicity of products like this during application and just the general wear. This is really no nonsense beauty. You don’t need to be a chemist to get your foundation on right. Swipe on, blend out, and you’re good to go.
Overall, Benefit Big Easy Multi-Balancing Complexion Perfector is an excellent little perfector as per the name. This isn’t full on coverage but just a way to refreshen up your already good skin and make it great. A little coverage, a hint of moisture for drier skin, some mattifying for oily skin, Benefit takes on lightweight coverage and makes it easy!
