I am torn about this.
I love the form factor - it's a nice little compact, I haven't had any trouble with the shadows mixing into the concealer like some others have mentioned. The brushes that come with it are good and I love the mirror.
The concealer is nice - I find it blends so well and I can use it for general touch-ups in the middle of the day, always a plus! I also sometimes use it sometimes to just anchor my shadow so that it doesn't just end up in the crease of my eyelids.
I'm not sure about the colours, though. They're very, very subtle on me and I mostly only use them on the days where I want a little oomph but not necessarily to 'look' like I'm wearing makeup. The lighter two shades could be a bit darker or just a slightly different shade and I would be completely happy.
It's so handy for those days when I just want to slap on something quick, though, that it's still what I purchase to throw in my purse.

This is perfect for me. I am about to repurchase it for the 3rd time. I am not crazy about the Boing..especially since it's a bit dark..I'd prefer a larger base color as that always runs out first...but all in all I would say this is one of my favorite makeup purchases.

I love the funny-retro packaging (I'm a fan of all Benefit packaging) and I've used this palette a lot for the last year, so I suppose I can leave my perfectly positive review.
The Boing concealer works wonders for my under-eye circles and never gets cakey (I use it under my La Mer foundation).
The colours are great, although I wish the lighter shade came in a more neutral tone (in other words: too pink for me).
Also, you need to go with a very light hand when sweeping your brush, or you'll get a bit too much powder that will look chalky on lids.

Before I bought this, I was stuck between the UD Naked Basics in this palette. I already own the original Naked palette, however, I don't always have the time in the morning to apply it before hand, so I wanted to look for something I could carry with me on-the-go. The reason I went with the Big Beautiful Eyes (BBE) is because not only did it come with a concealer, it also came with brushes. Now onto the more important stuff :)
In the palette you are given:
- Concealer 1.8g 'Boiing in shade 02' I would say it is light/medium - fit for NC/NW 20-25
- Pink base 0.8g - Similar to Sin in Naked, but less shimmery.
- Warm brown contour 0.8g
- Matte brown liner 0.8g
The shadows are lovely and heavenly to blend, way better than I expected. It creates a very subtle look but enhances your eyes beautiful and not OTT. I love that it included a matte shade so you could use it to lightly contour and use it as a brow powder. Luckily, the concealer also matched my skin tone, making it the perfect palette for me.
I have quite oily lids so I normally wear these on top of the UDPP making it last all day, so I would say it is long wear, and even if it's not you could reapply easily throughout the day.
It comes in cardboard packaging with a magnetic closure. I can't say that it's ideal, but It feels very comfortable in the hand. It is very compact, the length being shorter than an iPhone 4. It also includes a generously sized mirror inside. Another reason why I picked this over the Naked Basics is because this included brushes - which to my surprise are okay quality, not the best, but definitely something you can work with. It fits in the palette so you don't have to worry about it messing your make up bag up. One little note though that's bothering me, I wish that it Benefit revamped the packaging of this so it matched with "peek-a-bright-eyes", which has the same concept as this but with different shades. The cream concealer that came with it comes in a pot and cover which is more hygienic, since fluff and dirt can stick to the concealer. None the less, hopefully they'll update it in the future but as for now, I'll live with it because the colours are perfect for everyday wear.
I do admit that the price is a little steep for the amount of product you get. I bit my lips a bit while I was paying for it, but the convenience it offers does make the price forgivable. You could always find cheaper alternatives on Ebay - but be weary of fakes.
I think this palette is suitable for all ages, young to old as the colours are appropriate for everything and doesn't scream 'make up'. I am a bit upset that the you couldn't change the concealer to fit your natural skin tone (for those with deeper skin), however I suppose you could still use it as an eye shadow base.
I only gave this 4/5 as there are some aspects Benefit could work on to improve this gorgeous palette. But nonetheless I love it and I'm sure I will repurchase it in the future. Hope this helped x

Like a lot of women, I do have a fair collection of make-up and won't leave the house without just a little something on. So when I stay at my other half's place I have a little makeup bag which has a couple of products in for convenience. It has a colour for all over the lid, one to contour and line the eye (I also put a touch of this through my brows) and a concealer. It even has little brushes in the palette, and they're decent quality too. I would never think to buy something like this, it was a gift but it's come in so handy, I think I'll have to repurchase. Very handy if you're going over someones over night and have somewhere to be the next day. Although, this would not be very flattering on dark skin it gives a very natural look to us pale ladies!

I was shocked by this product, the boing in it was 02 which is too dark for me. And the other shadows were muddy and all similar. Not great at all. Didnt blend just murky mess!

This is one of my favourite eyeshadow palettes. Very natural looking to dramatic looks can be created and the colour lasts all day. It really does make your eyes look bigger. My only complaint is i feel it would be better if they removed the concealer and put in a pan of the light pink twice the size of the current one. The light pink is used as a base colour all over the eye and therefore runs out more quickly than the others. I ended up buying a separate pan of the light pink once the one in the palette ran out. The eyeshadow ends up going all over the concealer in the palette anyway so i don't use it and it's therefore a pointless inclusion for me.

I'm not sure but kit is not amongst my favourites- despite the fact I'm a huge Benefit fan. I like the base shadow, but it's a bit too pink, the medium brown is lovely and perfect for giving an eye nice contour. The eyeliner is a waste of time. Maybe I don't apply it correctly, but it doesn't create natural lines. Since I saw this kit I wanted to get it and now I think it's not worth the hassle. It's good for a natural look, but not for this money. If it was sold for £15, I would possibly buy it again, but I believe I can create similar look with cheaper products. One pro- it lasts all day and it's easy to apply.

This is a cute little kit. The colors are nicely pigmented, it's compact so easy to take with you on travels. The concealer that comes with it is nice, though i need a mix of number 1 and 2 and this is just number 2 but still it's a nice way to try out their boi-ing concealer. It comes with a little guide to how and where to use the colors and 2 small brushes. This would be ideal for people just getting into make-up or people who just want some nice neutral colors that are easy to travel with. It's a winner for me!

I've had Big Beautiful Eyes for about a week and I really like it! I'm not exactly sure how to use the chocolate brown matte color but I'm sure after searching on youtube a bit I'll figure it out. I like how it's so easily portable and I think it makes my eyes look extra pretty :) With the $1 ELF primer, it lasted 12+ hours without creasing ... and I used quite a bit. It stays in place, adds just enough shimmer to catch your eye, and goes well with any outfit. I'd probably recommend this more for brown, hazel, or green eyes although I'm not for sure.

I do use this product frequently and I love how it looks BUT I only use the pearly shade and medium brown shade. I have had this product for a year now and the dark brown shade and concealer are untouched.
Using the pearly shade on the brow bones always looks great. You only need a little for a classy look and the medium brown in the sockets. As I said, a little goes a long way so I can wear this in the day using just a little product. If I'm going out, I apply a little gold shadow on the upper lash line.
The only reason I would not repurchase is that I am hoping that during my next visit to the Benefit counter, I will be able to find the pearly shade and medium brown shade in individual pots.

I'm not a fan of the packaging because the highlighter shade should always be larger than the contouring and lid colour since you use more of it. I love the highlight shade, it's a very soft colour.
Overall the palette creates a nice every-day look that's pretty and makes my brown eyes seem just a little bit mysterious.
I never ever use the concealer, I find it useless. And even if I did use it, you couldn't because of the way it comes in the package. The eyeshadow fallout goes all over it.
I don't see much pigment in the lid shade, I can barely tell I've applied anything when I go over top of the highlight colour (which I use from my brow bone all the way down to my lash line). But even still, I would definitely buy this product again. Though not at the outrageous $30-something that the site charges. I bought it on ebay for about $10 or so dollars, which is a lot better.
Oh, and it lasts for a fairly long time. I didn't notice creasing until about 7 or so hours in. And that's without using primer.

I adore this palette. It helped me master a neutral smokey eye, which sounds simple, but I just had so much trouble with. The three shadows are perfect shades for me - the pinky one brightens up my eye area, the medium brown contours subtly, and the liner shade is the perfect way to up the drama.
I love that it has only 3 shades - it takes the guesswork out of pairing shadows. Handy for those of us who just aren't great at it.
The concealer is too dark for me to use under my eyes, but I do use it as an eyeshadow base and it is great for that purpose.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I like the shadows & the little compact but the concealer was no good for my skintone as I'm too fair, so it goes unused.
The shadows are nice, apply well, stay on well and blend well for the smokey look.
I'd rebuy the shadow shades in singles (if Benefit make them) but wouldn't bother with the little compact again because of the wasted concealer.

I use this most days. The two brown shadows are perfect. I rarely use the pink though or the boi ing concealer. The packaging is as cute and practical as you'd expect from Benefit.
It loses a lippy from me because of the price and unused concealer and pink shadow. The shadows are going to be ones that are easily replaced by others you may already have if you use a lot of neutrals or have purchased either of the UD Naked palettes. One is a shimmery mink brown colour and the other a matte chocolate.

This pallete is really beautiful and would suit many different people. I domt know if it gives me "big" beautiful eyes but it certainly looks beautiful with shadows combined and all. Its a very pretty girly look. The base shadows are pink and then there is a deep brown matte shadow for creasing or putting on as they suggest as eyeliner. I prefer to softly blend it into crease for more definition. The shadows are of high quality, no fall out and dont crease. The concealer that come with bo-ing i never use for some reason ive never like that concealer. Thing i dont like about this kit is that its quite expensive and you really dont get very much product. But other than that i like it.

This used to be my go-to everyday eyeshadow palette. It looks so natural and its great for sculpting the eye area. The shades were flattering on my skin tone (NW20), but I never really use the concealer. It seems a bit too dark for me.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This product is a big hit for me! The bo-ing concealer matches my skin tone, and the colours are really pretty for brown eyes. I don't really use the brushes that come with it but it's nice to know they are there anyway, same for the mirror and instructions. I watched demonstrations on youtube, then just did it my own way. I like the compact packaging, and the fact I can bring this anywhere. Its simple easy look for people who don't wear eyeshadow that much.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Olive, Cool Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Brown
Eyeshadows very sheer, they fallout into the cream (can't remember what product that is since I couldn't use it because of the fallout). The packaging is awful and the eyeshadow falls out of it, all round bad palette for me! Since we can't return cosmetics in the UK this went in the bin after 2 weeks and I was left feeling ripped off.
