READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Love the new compact foundation
I originally had the loose powder foundation from bareMinerals but recently went to a store for a refill and was informed of the new compact foundation. It is the same formula but in a solid form. I absolutely fell in love with this product! It cut my makeup time in half and provides flawless coverage. I've received many compliments on my skin and I believe this product is even better than the lose powder foundation. I have problem skin and find that the solid foundation covers better and looks great. I'd really recommend this product to anyone looking for a new foundation!
The energizer bunny of foundation!
I have been using the original formula for awhile now. I was extremely hesitant to change up my routine. I just couldn't resist giving it a shot last time I was due for a new foundation. I love it! Compared to the loose powder, I get an extra 30 days (at least) out of it too! It did look a little different than my original powder, I am glad that I tried it in the store first to buy the right shade.
I never thought I would give up my Bare Escentuals loose powder, but I love this new foundation. It is hard to get the correct color, I recommend buying it in a store for the first time so a professional can try it on you. Its a little messy, when you get it on the brush, but the cover is great, I am sticking with it
Best ever foundation.
I have used Bareminerals products as long as I can remember, well over 10 years. I have always been complimented on my complexion. I love the products. But this product tops them all. I love the soft smoothness of this foundation. The brush makes the whole makeup process even better. Since I have been getting older, the loose mineral product seems to accent the lines in my face. I do not get this effect from this new foundation. I am thrilled!
A True Favorite
I have used bareMinerals for years and did not believe it could be improved. This is a great way to bring your bareMinerals with you on the go for a no mess application or touch up.
Best Makeup I've Ever Worn
I never write product reviews, but I wanted to share my experience because this has become one of my favorite products ever. I've been using Bare Minerals foundation for about 4 years now, and I loved the original loose powder foundation.
I love the Ready Foundation even more.
I have problem skin, so I've tried everything form Neutrogena to Clinique, and this is by far my favorite--This is the best makeup I've ever worn. It takes so much less time to apply than the loose powder, which is ideal for busy mornings, and it gives me even more coverage. It also keeps oil under control throughout the day and leaves my skin soft after I take it off. It's easier to use on-the-go, too.
I highly recommend this makeup, especially if you're looking for more coverage or struggling with oily skin. You'll love it.
Made me look OLD!
I would not recommend this product for oily skin. Throughout the day it will settle into your fine lines and look extremely blotchy. At the end of a normal work day, I looked at my self in the mirror and was shocked at how much older I looked, it created laugh lines and crows feet where I don't have any yet. I can't believe I walked around like that all day.
I tried the product again with a primer underneath and then I set it with the Mineral Veil and the fine line settling stopped but the blotchiness still happened. I really wanted to like this product but I can't look like that all day.
I was somewhat sceptical of the Ready foundation after reading the reviews. I did take the advice to get a darker shade than normal. I usually wear fairly medium and I chose medium beige in the Ready foundation. I love it. Excellent long lasting coverage! Easy application! I've been using bare minerals for over 10 years. I didn't think anything could surpass it. Ready foundation does!
I'll admit, I was extremely skeptical about going back to a solid powder after using the matte foundation for the last five years. I was AMAZED at how well it covers and how easy it is to use. I am constantly on the run, so I love that I can throw this in my purse and touch up my face in between appointments. You do have to go one shade up to get the right match, but that's no problem for me! I will absolutely purchase this product again!
Good coverage but...
I was very excited to try this new formula, but was disappointed after doing so. The ready foundation has much more SPF than the original/matte formula, which causes the color to look a little different. I was shade matched twice, and still ended up exchanging it for my faithful matte powder version. The coverage was great, but it made my skin look clammy and the color was very off. I don't think it's a good formula for African American women. I'm still a loyal Bare Minerals beauty, but I'll just stick to the powder version from now on. FYI to the ladies who mentioned it was messy...it helps if you watch the video tutorial before purchasing. It's not a swirl, tap, buff application. It's a press and buff application. It's not messy at all.
