READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20
I checked in at the Bare Minerals Boutique for the color matching and was quickly set-up with the right color and the wonderful gift of seeing my complexion looking incredible. I've used BE for 7 years but at 62 have noticed I need more pop and glow. Figured it was time to try the newer foundations. I have some sun damage and natural aging issues but with this foundation I don't need to use as much nor do I need to use Bisque for concealing. Did I say Wow? Awesome and unbelieveable might be more accurate. Thanks BE!!!
give it another chance - i did!
ok so i was one of those people that bought this and returned it not once but twice yikes! i originally bought the light because that is what i used in the loose but whoa it was way too yellow for me in the solid. then i bought it again and returned it saying i don't know people can use this stuff but after watching the video that Leslie posted and going to the store to get the correct color and the correct brushes and primer i have finally fallen in love with this foundation! it is so easy to use and it looks amazing! so maybe if you are like me and have bought it and returned it, you can give it another chance too! i used the light in loose and i now buy the med beige in solid
I bought this product from the store.it was nice they helped me select the perfect shade for my complexion.the coverage merged my face so well,I was happy it didn't leave any layer over layer on my face. Loved it!
The best foundation!!!!!
I'm a true believer of this amazing product. I confess I tried other foundations, even the air brushed technique but non of this products will ever compare to Bare Escentuals Ready Foundation. It goes so smoothly yet, it covered all of my skin imperfections like some age spots, beautifully. I aplied it in the morning and it lasted the entire day, looking smooth and perfect. I've recomended this to my daughters and my friends and I'm sure they will get the same incredibly beautiful results.
Smooth, perfect coverage.
I'm kind of a minimalist makeup user, and I prefer a simple application and a natural look. This new foundation is fantastic. It goes on so smoothly that it almost feels like a cream. I use a concealer brush to put a little on the inner corner of my eye, the darker skin under my eye, and sometimes around my nose if there's some redness there, and then I use the flawless face brush to complete my face. The final look isn't at all powdery; just smooth and even and bright. I'm honestly pretty amazed; I didn't think BE could improve so much on it's original foundation formula. Many thanks for a beautiful product that's a pleasure to use!
The Best Foundation!
I love Bare Minerals products in general. The Matte formula in Golden Fair blew me away. I have oily skin, and it was the only foundation I had worn in my life that didn't slide off my face by noon. Just when I thought I couldn't love a foundation more, I ... tried... the... Ready...
My Golden Fair matched me well, but when I got shade matched to the Medium Beige in this formula, it literally looked like my own natural naked skin. My skin looks radiant. The formula is so creamy, it FEELS GOOD to put on your face! I never expected a foundation to "feel good" during the application process.
Also, I do wear Prime Time foundation primer, as I did with the Matte formula as well, but I have noticed another key difference... bye bye oil blotting sheets! While the Matte never slid off my face by noon, I would have to break out an oil blotting sheet for a quick touch-up by then, and I am so over-the-moon that after 20 years of worrying about my face looking like an oil slick, I no longer have to worry about it! I just put the foundation on in the morning, and I can go all day without worrying about oil and shine.
I went on my FAB account and changed my product answer to the one thing you can't live without to foundation, whereas before, I had it as eyeshadow (thanks to the Ready duos and quads). That's how much I love this product :)
I've used the loose foundation for years and every time I stray and try something else, I always go back. Until now. I love this product. Somehow it looks even more natural on my skin. It takes so very little and blends very well. I use the newer precision brush which is amazing with any of the foundations. The brush really pulls it together. I will stray no more.
BE just keeps getting better
My favorite BE consultant demonstrated this new "Ready" foundation. My daughter and I both had our "makeovers"! We love this new product. No "dust", I can better control the coverage, easy to travel with,and the finish is so natural. I seem to be using less product with the Ready foundation. The coverage is perfect for my skin and gives me a flawless look all day. In December, traveled from a cold Ky to a warm Fl, and the Ready foundation worked well in both climates.
Thank you BE! for another great product.
Natural Coverage FINALLY
I have hopped around between a lot of powder foundations but I never found something that I really loved. I've used Pur Minerals, L'Oreal True Match, Benefit Hello Flawless, as well as the Original BareMinerals foundation, I would use them until I ran out but never felt like I had found something I would go back to for another go. Powders either feel heavy to me or disappear after a few hours. Till now! I use a flawless application brush and it gives me very natural finish yet plenty of coverage for my acne prone skin. I would definitely recommend this.
Tricky to use
I was so excited to try this foundation because I thought it would be easy and quick to use, especially on the go. I wish I had known ahead of time that I needed to order it a couple shades darker than what I normally use. I also wish I had known there was a different technique altogether for applying it. I made sure to read the information that came along with it but it did not do a good job of explaining of exactly to use it. Now after having watched the videos that I got by email today I think I have a much better understanding of how to apply. Too bad half of it is already gone and I've been looking like a "baroque lady" as according to my husband for the past month!
