READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null 4 5 251 251
Keeps breaking! I absolutely love this foundation... it gives perfect coverage that I need everyday. It also feels light and airy. However, towards the end my compacts always break as in the makeup inside shatters and is no longer usable. Recently, I bought a new compact and the makeup shattered inside and the entire new compact was unusable. Its frustrating because you spend so much money and not all of it can be used. 08/01/2014
Covers acne I cannot say enough about this product and how it helped me through a bad acne breakout. You cannot put it on heavy or you'll look ridiculous. I used their concealer for the acne leas ions. Also warmth, and a blush. They helped to take the emphasis off the acne. The girl at the BM store was more than nice when she did this mini makeover! I now only use the original foundation and Ready on special occasions because I find it to be more moisturizing than the original and I want my face to be as clear as possible. The concealer I don't think clogged my pores but I watch these products as an acne sufferer. I usually walk around with no makeup for the lesions to heal. 07/30/2014
What's with the color change?!? I started using/switched to the Ready foundation formula about a yr ago (switched from the traditional loose mineral formula, which I had used for yrs). Found its coverage to be comparable and really liked that it was less messy & more user friendly in my purse or with travel. I always wore the "medium" in the loose mineral, but found the "medium beige" in the Ready to be a closer match to the "medium" in the loose, which I had always loved. Fast forward to now, I was out of my Ready Med Bg. Due to convenience, I usually order online b/c the closest store to me is several miles away. However, this time I happened to be in that neck of the woods, so I went by the BE store and purchased another Ready in Med. Bg., which I had been using for over 6 mos & was very happy with. Got the new replacement home, and it looked yellow on my skin versus the usual slightly pink to neutral undertones. I visually compared it to the old Med Bg in natural lighting & there is DEFINITELY a difference!! Thinking the store clerk may have accidentally picked up the wrong color or misunderstood my request (she got the product for me, I did not remove from store shelf myself), I compared the numbers on the back of the compact. They WERE different!! Old Med Bg was N20, but the store clerk gave me one that said R250. So I was convinced she sold me he wrong one & was going to try & return it. HOWEVER... I just now looked online to order another Med Bg and OMG, it is now indeed R250!! (WTHeck?!?) The store clerk did NOT make an error; BE has apparently CHANGED the color. I have no dang idea which color NOW translates into the old Med Bg. I have been a loyal customer for years, and did not see any communication via website or otherwise that they were changing up the colors. This stuff is not exactly cheap either!!! What is the deal?!? I would have ordinarily given this product a 4-5 star rating, but given the schizo color change that makes me look jaundiced, it now has only 2 stars. I am sooo disappointed. Would have continued to buy this product for many, many more yrs, but not now. :( 07/07/2014
Runs lighter in color I love the Bare Mineral formula and how it feels on my skin. It's weightless and doesn't cause my skin to react. I love the pressed powder, it goes on smooth, has a light matte finish and doesn't move throughout the day. Many products make my skin react. Between clogged pores, redness, and rashes I've learned that this brand works well for me. I've tried every foundation they make and love each one for different reasons. I go back and forth between liking the pressed and loose powders but I think I do like the pressed better. I feel like I get more out of it and can use less to get the same amount of coverage as the loose powder. My one complaint is that it does run about a shade lighter in the same color as the original and matte formulas. 06/16/2014
On the go necessity The is a must have compact in your make up bag. Great for touch ups while on the go. Affordable and lasts long. Works great with the mini kabuki brush. 06/14/2014
Love the look, not the time What caused me to try this was how long each container lasts. I used Clinique due to skin issues, and love it, but every 30 days I need a new compact. Bare Escentuals costs the same, but lasts for months. I've been using Bare Escentuals for a little over a year now with a couple of breaks from it. I started with the loose powder and loved the way it looked, but it was messy, time-consuming, and took up too much space in my bag so I went back to the other stuff. Once I found out about the compact powder foundation, I just HAD to give it another try. I aboslutely love the way it looks, I never have to do any touch-ups (except when my allergies are bad and need to use a lot of tissue), my skin looks so smooth, and it holds up in the heat when I'm outside a lot. My only complaint is how long it takes to put on. I like to just slap on the necessities and go, like I could with my old powder foundation. Other than that, I'm extremely happy with stuff and will continue buying it! 06/09/2014
Great new foundation! I have been a faithful Bare Minerals fan for many years using the Original and the Matte powder foundations, but this new foundation blew me away! I have gotten compliments from TOTAL STRANGERS in the street, my friends ask me why I look so good, even my dad noticed my skin looked pretty. It is totally awesome! I got the new precision brush and it is amazing as well, soft to the touch, makes me wanna put my foundation on, and best of all, gives me full coverage and bright, fresh-looking skin. I have oily skin and it is still matte at the end of the day, no shine at all which is nice. However, I feel it hydrates my skin as well and it is definitely not drying. A little goes and looooong way! And it has soooo much staying power it's ridiculous. Mid-afternoon/early evening I look at my skin and the foundation is still going strong... No need for touch-ups. You need to get shade matched for sure! It will make all the difference. I dare anyone to use this foundation and not like it! It's pretty much impossible! 06/06/2014
THE BEST I LOVE my READY foundation. It is just PERFECT. It covers redness on my cheeks and I can build up my coverage and still look natural. It is LONG lasting, it never settled into any lines on my face and makes me look more polished. My skin is oily and the foundation still lasts very very long. No need to touch up throughout the day, I just use oil absorbing sheets and it looks like I just put on makeup. It is also so comfortable to the skin and lies so beautifully on it. I just can't say anything negative about it, it really is my perfect foundation. 06/06/2014
Perfcect for my skin- I LOVE this! I bought the compact this time around to try it out- I have 2 small kids so the quickest makeup routine I can get is the best for me! I am so impressed with the coverage and overall quality of the compact foundation! I normally do the loose powder which I have always liked but this is just AWESOME! I have oily areas on my face and some scarring, this product covers everything and I have had it on for 4 hours now and my face isn't even a bit oily- by now I've wiped off a lot of the loose powder from blotting oil. If you want quick and easy coverage, this is the way to go! 06/02/2014
My Holy Grail--Once I found the right shade I was wearing the Matte, but it didn't provided enough coverage for my rosacea. The Original is too luminous for me, so I decided to try the Ready. I originally chose the wrong shade and had a bad experience. The foundation looked like it was sitting on my face instead of blending in. So I ended up going to a BE Boutique and got shade matched properly---and I am in love!! It lasts all day, doesn't get oily, and the coverage is easy to control. My only suggestions are to (1) pay attention to the undertones (cool, neutral, golden) because that definitely makes a difference in the success of your shade match, (2) find a brush that works for you. The precision face brush (the angled-top kabuki) gave me too much coverage, but when I use the flawless face brush it's perfect (3) once you tap your brush into the foundation, swirl it in an empty lid from the loose foundation to make sure the Ready gets evenly distributed throughout the bristles. Once I started doing that, I got perfect, even coverage every time. 05/27/2014

I have used both the Original and the Ready Foundation, but find that the latter is more difficult to cleanse, usually resulting in having to cleanse twice to make sure all is removed.

A: 
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.

A: 
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).

I think you will like this for sure! My skin is very oily during the summer months, and this foundation does the trick. No shine at all; by the end of the day my skin looks like I just put on foundation. I would definitely give it a go. Get shade matched first since it will make all the difference.

A: 
It's general rule that you'll be one shade darker than the Original formula in the Ready foundation. However, after my experience, if you can get to a boutique or anywhere that sells it so you can test it first and/or be shade matched, that's the best.

I've heard of other people using other foundation brushes to apply the ready foundation. I have the precision face brush. I love the brush because it picks up just enough product and blends it so well over my whole face. This brush is very soft as well.

I would think almost any brush would work but I definitely think you should use a brush to get it blended well

I am also a medium beige in the original and matte foundation. I purchased the same for the compact and it works great. You do need a brush with it, either the precision or mini kabuki.

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!

A blush typically comes in shades varying from light pinks to darker reds, giving the skin a pretty touch of color. (Not sunburnt, but more so "flushed")
Bronzers range from browns to orange browns. They are used for contouring and to give a sun kissed, tanned glow.
