READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null 4 5 237 237
This Foundation is amazing! I bought this foundation a few days ago and ever since I have been using it, it has brought nothing but good coverage to my acne scars and my acne. You would think just because it is a powder it wouldn't be as much coverage as it brought but it really is an amazing product. 04/16/2014
Not as good at the Matte Foundation I tried this out because I love the Bare Minerals Foundation. I did not like this as well as the Bare Minerals Matte Foundation. The Bare Minerals Matte Foundation looks much better on my skin. I did use some of the foundation but, I went back to the Matte Foundation. 03/26/2014
Worst Foundation I've ever tried. I'm a woman of color, (NW45 in mac) and Warm dark in the original formula, and this is by far the worst foundation I've ever tried. Extremely cakey and dry looking. I tried 3 different shades, and could not find a color to match me, meanwhile I match several shades in the loose powder formula. Huge disappointment. 03/24/2014
Itchy I really wanted to like this foundation. I got a perfect color match using fairy light, and it looked amazing when I first applied it. You have to be very careful with this foundation to not over apply, or it will look really cakey as the day goes on. Even with applying a light layer using the flawless application brush, by the end of the day the texture didn't look as good in a few places on my face. The main reason for the rating I gave is that shortly after putting it on my face is so itchy. I have never had that problem with foundations before. 03/18/2014
More choices Love this product...but BM...needs to add more shades for people of color...I think BM should copy every shade for people of color from the MAC make up line 03/05/2014
I think I found my foundation soul mate.... I am a long time bareMinerals user and although I love the product, I was never able to get an exact skin tone match (I was always between Light and Fairly Light) but I love the product so much I would opt for "ghost face" and add warmth. With this foundation, I am not sure if the shades are slightly different, but I have finally found my color match. On top of that, the foundation feels so soft and smooth on my skin, more so than the powder foundations. Also-unlike the powder foundations-I've made virtually no mess during my morning routine and I feel like a very tiny amount goes a very long way. This READY foundation has completely transformed my morning routine and it looks so RADIANT on my skin. Another one hit out of the park, bareMinerals! Thank you! 03/03/2014
Foundation+Acne Treatment I was using Mary Kay "mineral foundation" and the first ingredient is Talc-something they say if really not good for you skin. Over time i developed mild acne on my cheeks. After sleeping in Bare Escentuals foundation for 1 night I could already tell a difference in my cheeks. The following night I used the night serum sample I was sent and the next morning even better results. My mary kay went into the trash and I will forever be greatful for bare escentuals! The minerals in the foundation did the trick for me. 02/24/2014
The BEST foundation ever! This is truly the most amazing foundation I have ever found! I cannot believe how very well it covers my redness and with so small amount. I don't even have to use a cover stick anymore, just use a smaller brush to touch up areas that need more coverage. It feels light and it does NOT come off! This really stays on longer even than 12 hours and no matter how much I touch my face, brush up against things, etc. it stays on my face! I will use this forever. Thank you Leslie and Bare Escentuals. 02/21/2014
Flawless on the Run I was a long time user of the Bare Minerals Matte Foundation in Golden Fair, but it wasn't easy to do on the go and I always managed to make SUCH A MESS with it. So I switched to another foundation, which was just ok. Then I saw the READY foundation and decided to give it a try. Application and color matching really were key to using this product, but it has become my new favorite thing. I finally went into my local store and the stylist shade matched me from Golden Fair in the original foundation to a Medium Beige in the READY foundation! I was super surprised, but it really is an exact match and blends beautifully. I also bought the Precision Face Brush and using it with the READY foundation makes my pores look smaller, keeps the shine from my oily skin at bay, and it's long wearing with medium to full coverage. I love this product! 02/20/2014
I've never loved a foundation more! A friend's dermatologist recommended bare minerals to her as a gentle makeup option for her skin and I figured that made it worth a try for myself. I'm so glad I took a chance! I've had bad experiences with several other mineral makeup foundations drying out my skin or making any dry patches look awful. This ready foundation is in a league of its own, I tell my friends and family that it seems like magic! Just a few strokes of my super soft precision face brush and I've got a healthy, soft, natural, even looking complexion. I switched to this from a liquid foundation and I'll never look back. I have fair, combination skin and this foundation has totally transformed my skin into what I've always wanted it to be! I've noticed a few negative reviews and that makes me sad for those that have given it a negative review because I honestly believe they weren't using the product correctly. My foundation is not messy at all because I just have to tap or push my brush into the compact, no swirling or stroking just pushing it in. This gives me enough powder to cover my entire face. Since I have started using this foundation I have experienced no new breakouts of acne and my skin feels softer than it ever has. I definitely recommend being shade matched because I never would have guessed the shade I ended up with (one that was darker than I expected), but it matches perfectly. For the first time in my life I am not worried about what my jaw line will look like when I leave the house and wonder if my face is going to blend in with my neck. I've received many comments on how clear and nice my skin looks for the first time which is wonderful. The foundation works really well as a concealer over old acne scars, doesn't settle into any under-eye wrinkles (a problem I had with liquid foundation) and does not bother my eyes at all! This seems to just become a part of my skin, evening it out, and covering unevenness. It doesn't rub off on clothes or anything like that which is awesome. How embarrassing is it when you hug someone and your makeup is left all over their shoulder? I finish my foundation routine with the BM Ready mineral veil in translucent and it sets my foundation for the day nicely. I throw that compact in my purse on the go and use it if I’m feeling oily or need a touch up and it works very well. I could not recommend this product more. I'm hooked for life. The other bonus, it seems to last a really long time! I've been using this compact for a month and haven't even made a dent into the compact. Take a chance on this product, watch the video tutorial on the BM page to apply it correctly and get shade matched. You’ll be SO glad that you did. I am in LOVE! 02/18/2014

I think Medium Beige would still work well for you in READY, it just might be a tad lighter. And no, you can use the Full Flawless (or whichever brush); I do!

I've found that bronzer is more on the brown side, while blush is more pink. I use bronzer for a more golden/tan look, and blush for a more rosy look.

Bare Minerals is for all skin types. No kidding, my face broke out once and in less than a week of going back to Bare Minerals, my face cleared up very nicely. I've been using Bare Minerals for at least 6 years now. Original is great for any time of the year. I too have combo skin. So in my makeup routine, I don't use moisturizer, but I use just enough primer for my face so that my makeup can last. Primer is a must. Matte Foundation is good for the summer time where combo skin is oilier because of the sun and you tend to sweat more. You can try either the READY or loose powder version of mineral veil. Personally I like the pressed powder version. You can tap the brush in and buff lightly all over the face. If you prefer powder that's fine too. You have a better chance of the powder absorbing the oily areas of your face. You can use veil under or over makeup. Here is my makeup routine:

Primer
Concealer
Eye Brightener
Foundation
Blush
Fill in the brows
Eyeliner
Shadow Stick and/or eyeshadow combined
Mascara
Face Defender or Mineral Veil
Lipstick with gloss or just lip gloss

That's it. The face defender I speak of I can't say the brand it is, but it's great for targeting oily areas of the face. Search the internet for "face defender" and you should find it. Hope this helps.

I have combination skin and this works well for me. Use the Prime Time over your moisturizer, just a pea sized amount, less is more. Take the time to really buff the foundation into your skin -- 2-3 times like that over the whole of my face like that with the Full Flawless Face brush is enough coverage for me.

The touch-up veil works perfectly to use for shine control and to set the makeup -- I found even with the original foundation that if I used some of the Mineral Veil in the compact they sent me as a free gift that it looked better if I touched up at lunch and before going out that night with it. The READY touch-up veil compact is great, and so convenient! I can fit all my makeup in a small bag with my toothbrush and toothpaste for traveling, and I have the brush organizer as well.

This make up last when used with the prime time primer. I can fall asleep with this make up on and wake up in the morning and only have lost the make up around my nose bc that's where I get oily at night. But yes, this make up does last and since it is on the go you will always be able to have it on you for on the go touch ups!

If you are asking how long the compact lasts, I've had mine 3 months and still have around a month of product left. A little goes a long way and it is a several month supply. It is very much the price you pay for it seeing how long it lasts. My fav foundation!

This foundation is a great all-day solution! It is good for up to 8 hours. (See product description.)

I've been using bareMinerals for years now, and I've found that when paired with the bareMinerals Mineral Veil, this foundation lasts all day!

Best of luck to you.

A: 
I would definitely recommend going to a boutique and being shade matched before you order. Be careful though and make sure you really look at your makeup after you are done being matched bc some ppl say they were incorrectly matched. So definitely have the sales person apply the makeup to your face so you can see if it is too light or too dark.

For the READY Foundations here in the US, R170 is "Fairly Light." I think the US is starting to go to the number system as well, so just look for "R170 Fairly Light."
