READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Great product but can't get a color match!
I love the simplicity of this product - just a few swipes and I'm done! I've been in the boutique at least three times to get color matched and sadly, I just am not happy with any color! I don't have this problem with any other BM foundation. The first time I bought Medium Tan (gosh, don't know what they call it now - so confusing with all the letters/numbers they assign to the products) and it matched fine. The next time I bought it, the color was too dark. I've tried Med Beige (too light) and Golden Beige (too yellow). Frustrating because the lighting in the store is so dim (goodness, you REALLY need to fix that in the Greenville, SC location!) and when you get home it's all UGH. Did you change the color formulations? All I know is I'd love to use it, but I can't. It would be so helpful if you keep the color names the same over the different foundation lines too!
I don't know what i would do without this product! Amazing coverage and looks natural and not like its caked on. I would highly recommend this. I found my perfect shade when i visited the store, so thankful!
Very happy with this product
This is the third Bare Minerals foundation formulation that I have tried. I started with the original powder, which I liked, but it can be messy and it's bulky to travel with. I then tried the liquid which I didn't like quite so well. Even though I'm middle-aged, I still have an oily T-zone and just felt like the liquid melted off me. READY is just right.
I really like this foundation. It goes on smoothly and stays on all day without the need for touch ups. The only thing I don't like is that after using this product for a while it begins to get a shiny, hardened formation at the top and it makes it very hard to get product on the brush. I have to scrape the hardened portions out of the product in order to continue using the compact but I lose a lot of product that way and that is rather disappointing. I am now just starting my third compact and will see if this happens again. If it does I may want to consider another type of Bare Minerals foundation.
This foundation is so nice. I think it's way easier to apply than the loose powders. It doesn't take long to get the coverage that I need, just a few swipes and I'm done. You don't even really need the precision face brush for this, I wanted to order a new brush and when I was looking into ordering that one they were out of stock so, being impatient, I ordered the new beautiful finish brush and it works great with it. Only reason that I'm giving this a 4 rating is because you have to use a primer or setting powder or both to make it last all day. Without those I can get maybe 5-6 hours without a touch up.
Very, very happy!!
I actually am surprised that I really like this product. I tried it in the past with no success. I have retried it now using a new skin care line, Clinique, under it. I've been using it for 4 days now and I cannot believe how easily it covers my skin and redness that I have. I use the brush that goes with it, I forget what its called but its angled. I also use the ready touch up veil in medium under it and over it in the morning.
Before using this I used the bareMinerals original foundation for years. However, that really only is an 8 hour wear, and it took me much longer to get it to cover what I needed it too.
This has actually made getting ready in the morning much faster! And my skin looks a lot smoother and much more natural!
Also, with this and the touch up veil (no primer) I do not have to touch up during the day, which has not happened in like 10 years!
I use this in R210, medium. The color matches great! Previously I had to mix original colors light and fairly medium, so I never knew what I was going to get when applying.
This foundation with the touch up veil in ready has turned into my HG!
I cannot believe how good my skin looks with this fantastic compact powder foundation! I am 61 years old and have a dryer skin and I love a medium to full coverage so I use the precision face brush with it. My skin just glows with this make up and it doesn't seem to settle into my fine lines. I love that it has an SPF 20 in it as well. Take note that you will have to go for a darker shade because I have a light to medium complexion with pink undertones and the best color for me is (R310) for medium to tan skin. Don't be afraid to go darker because this make up is so easy to blend and is seamless!
I just happend to walk by the bare minerals section at the mall and tried it instantly fell in love!! I've been trying it out for about 4 weeks now. Amazing coverage, light on the face, it's wonderful for oily skin it lasts me all day. So far it's the best foundation I have used!!
I really wanted to try a pressed powder foundation and this just wasn't it. I like the matte loose powder 1000x better. this just made me appear like a really weird shade. I got the deepest dark I believe though i was a golden dark in the matte. sigh
I really love this foundation. It gives me just the right amount of coverage without being too heavy. I previously used MAC's studio fix and found myself liking Ready more. It doesn't feel cakey the way MAC's did.
I've read other reviews of this product, and it's strange how everyone's skin reacts differently to certain products. I have a very oily t-zone and didn't find this to be too heavy nor prone to breakouts. If anything, I've been seeing less since my products transition.
My recommendation is just to try it and see if it's for you. If not, you can either exchange or return it, ya know?
