Great for oily skin, stopped my acne. Go with the fair game and dont use a primer.

I would definitely recommend Buxom show some skin over Benefit's Big Easy, simply due to finish/ how each product oxidizes (sets). Big Easy left my skin feeling dry and cakey. It dried to a lighter color. Even on the back of my hand, Big Easy had a TERRIBLE finish. I have combination skin, and I honestly did not have to set Show some skin with powder, it did not sweat off or transfer. There's always different strokes for different folks so if you are still able to redeem a sample size (like I did), I would suggest doing that. I got the color "Sweet as Honey" and it's a perfect match. I'm mixed, black & Asian, so I would describe my skin tone as beige also, and definitely, hard to match. Things either set too pink, too yellow, too tan, or too white for me. This was my match, felt like skin, looked like skin (minus my blemishes, dark under eye circles, and discoloration around my lip area). I will upload a photo in the future, before & after.
Buxom hands down has better coverage than Big Easy. Big Easy is very sheer, and a lot of reviews around online complain about how sheer and patchy it is. I've sampled it a couple times, and didn't like it. The Buxom is great, and a sheer dusting of setting powder in the t-zone in the morning keeps it fresh and not shiny all day.
