Rated 4 out of 5 by 311 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding, if it was available... The best foundation I've ever used. It goes on flawless, with or without the bare minerals brush. Now seriously Bare Minerals, restock your foundation stores so I can give you my money already! 07/20/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great makeup but compact broke twice! I love the foundation compact. Great light but effective long lasting coverage. I have purchased it twice. But both times, as time went on and about 60% of the makeup was gone, the remaining powder in the compact cracked and I had a lot of little pieces left. You basically have to throw it out after that because every time you open it you get the dust and powder everywhere. The item is well priced for great quality but this is the 2nd time this happened to me so I basically paid for about half of what I was able to use - so then it becomes very expensive when you think about what you pay for vs. what you can use! I know I could buy a powder jar and sifter so I could dump the remaining pieces into it and keep using the makeup - but really, this shouldn't be happening to begin with. 06/27/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product but it's been out of stock in my shade forever Have been using this product for several months now and can't say enough good about it. However, I've been trying to order more for several weeks now and it's always out of stock. Hope this doesn't mean they aren't making ti anymore! 06/27/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Redness, Rosacea, Sensitive....Look No Further! I used the original foundation about 10 years ago in my 40's. Skin was in good shape. Fast forward to 50's, menopause, and now ultra sensitive skin prone to redness and rosacea flare ups with occasional yeast infections. I have foundation from almost every line...liquid with chemical sunscreens that my skin cannot handle. Decided why not go back to Bare Minerals? I found this foundation and gave it a try. It's been the best thing. Hardly need concealer, a lot of the redness and bumps have disappeared. The precision brush is an absolute must with application! I also use Blemish Therapy on the bumps. I have stocked up on both products in case they are discontinued! 03/19/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by eh.... very vibrant and glowing. but the foundation builds a film over the top of it, and it seems i cant get enough of it on my brush. 03/05/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT This product is amazing. By mistake I found out you don't have to use concealer. One day before I left for work, I realized I had too much concealer and makeup under my eyes and it looked very caked up. At the last minute I used a face wipe and removed everything on my face except my eye makeup. I took a chance and used the foundation under my eyes and realized I didn't need any concealer. I was so excited. I thought I had ruined my look, but I really enhanced it by taking off the concealer. Now I use this amazing product without concealer and I'm so excited. Preparation time is cut in half. I've tried other brands of makeup but wasn't happy with them. By far, Bare Minerals is the best ever! The coverage is phenomenal and last all day. I am very happy with this. 02/23/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most exciting find in years! For the past several years I have liked (but not loved) my choices in liquid and loose (mineral) powder foundations...and I had never found a pressed powder I liked even a little bit. So it came as a happy surprise that Bare Minerals created the most perfect foundation I have ever used in a pressed mineral powder form. READY foundation goes on smoothly and provides a flawless finish with a minimum of product. My skin looks young again - bright, dewy, and even-toned. The shade match is perfection - it matches my light medium "natural" color, while blending in the darker, sun-damaged spots. Application is a breeze with the angled brush. I can't say enough about this wonderful new foundation! 02/22/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by MAC Studiofix Convert here! If you are unsure at all about the loose mineral makeup - you need to give this a try! I love this compact version of Bare Minerals! Get the Precision Face brush - it works wonderfully with this foundation. It melts into your skin and gives great coverage, but feels like nothing! Highly recommend! 02/10/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bare Minerals, I can't quit you! I used Bare Minerals Original Foundation for a year and when I ran out I went back to my "old faithful" (Clinique). I immediately started breaking out and my skin looked so shiny/oily by lunch time. I ordered the BM Ready Foundation with the Precision brush and the Ready Translucent powder with the Soft Focus brush. My skin literally started looking better after the first day I wore it! I will never switch away from Bare Minerals again! Lesson learned! I prefer the Ready foundation over the Original for the convenience of having a compact and I MUCH rather prefer the Precision brush over the Flawless brush I had with the Original. I wore Medium Beige in the Original and still wear it with Ready. I highly recommend this product, you won't regret it. My skin has never looked better! 01/26/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The reason I returned to Bare Minerals This is my absolutely most favorite product of Bare Minerals. The coverage is excellent. It's light. I can where it all day. I can sweat in it. I get compliments all the time. I don't break out from using it. In fact I had to discontinue using most foundations because they didn't where well over time and would make me break out. Please, please, please do not discontinue this product. I love it so, so, so much. 01/23/2016

Details: 
I wear medium beige in the original foundation. I heard shade matching in the ready can be tricky so I got matched in a boutique. She matched me to medium beige and it looked great. But I don't feel I'm getting the coverage or the color. What am I doing wrong? Am I in the right shade?

I have used this product for a year or more. I get to use about half the product in the compact and then it cracks and breaks, making a huge mess, and is unusable. I use the recommended brush, and it doesn't seem to make any difference. I like it otherwise, but it is expensive when I can't finish using the foundation. Do you have any recommendations? I get it usually at Ulta, and they have been terrible in helping me with this problem.

How are you using the brush to put the product on it? I use this and have never had that problem. I tap the brush on it to get the product on the brush -- I do not swipe it, if you understand what I am saying. Don't know if that helps any or not.

Answer: 
I'm not sure why it's breaking. Are you maybe pressing to firmly with the brush when applying? I use a light even brush stroke to the compact and repeat until I get the perfect coverage. I've never had an issue with mine breaking. Only time it gets a little crumbly is if it's almost out and only a small amount of foundation powder is left around the edges. I usually just throw it away at that point.

Answer: 
Hi, I also have fairly oily skin and started using the ready compact foundation. It worked for 2 months but now I'm noticing my skin to get oily again. I think it's because this particular product is supposed to be hydrating the skin, as it says in the description. You may want to try the loose powder, although I have yet to try it.

Answer: 
Well they have translucent and the other color which is light, and translucent is lighter than light so maybe you looked at the wrong time?? Other then that medium light is not almost the same, its little darker then light but then agian its lighter than medium. So its in the middle, this color is more of a mixture color as if you were in between the same colors for your skin.

Answer: 
Fairly Medium isn't the same because you were using a neutral undertone and this one has a pink undertone. Medium Beige would probably be the closest to the one you were using. Go to a store that sells it and have them put some on your face in this shade.

Answers

Answer: 
Hahaha, alright, alright, to be honest, I wouldnt do either. Usually this foundation comes with a pad to apply on your face but if you dont want to use it then I suggest to go buy a brush from them to apply to your face so it can be even and perfect. If you just use your finger, bacteria will go on your face and clog your pores. And a cotton ball wouldnt really apply very well, and it wastes more of your product. So I highly suggest you getting proper tools for your product so it can be properly and easyily applied. I hoped I helped!! :)

Answer: 
Honestly the best way to apply in my opinion is with a dense flat top brush. I personally love the sigma f80 flat top kabuki... That's what I use and I get so many compliments that my skin looks natural and flawless... If your going to use such a great foundation you might as well get the best result by using a good brush. Bare minerals has their READY Precision Face Brush that works great also... Hope this helps... I probably wouldn't use a cotton ball though

Answer: 
The only successful way to apply this makeup, since really it's a compact powder, is to use the precision face brush. There's a great video on the foundation's page that shows you how to tap and then apply in long strokes, and it results in AMAZING coverage. The way the foundation is made there's just not really a good way to get around using it or a kabuki brush. I know it's a little pricey but it is SO worth it and you never have to buy it again-- this coming from someone who doesn't have very many pennies to spare! Hope this helps!

Answer: 
I think a brush is needed, a cotton ball or your fingers will just put the product in one spot. This foundation blends so nicely into the skin, but it won't without a brush in my opinion. I left my Precision Face Brush at my vacation home, and now use a big fluffy brush, or a mini kabuki, and get a nice medium coverage.

With me, a really good moisturizer before I put the base on has done wonders for this. If the more you out on, the more bothersome it is, you could also probably stand to have a darker foundation. I'm fair but had to go from R170 to R250. Hope this helps ya!

Answer: 
I am not a professional makeup artist or anything but I have tried both formulas and work outside no matter how hot or cold it is.

I think (at least with my skin, yours may be different) they both last about the same in the heat and they both will wipe off while using a napkin. I have used both with and without primer. The Ready foundation, I feel, does a little better than Bareskin without a primer as far as last power. However, while using a primer, I feel the Bareskin does better and looks better throughout the day (more natural, not like a mask) while working in the heat and sweating (a lot).
