READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Wanted to love and I do but....
This product will clog your pores and may you BREAKOUT!! I have sensitive skin, which is the main reason I started using Bare Minerals. I needed new foundation about a month ago and decided to try READY. I wish I would have stuck with the Traditional that I have used for years. About 2 weeks after starting READY...I had the WORST breakout of my life. Had to be the foundation because nothing else in my skin care regiment had changed. I loved the coverage and the look of the foundation, just not the subsequent breakout. I am going back to the tried and true traditional and never straying again!
When I found out about the READY Foundation I was curious. I went and purchased some (after getting shade matched of course) and absolutely fell in love!! I know I've heard that you usually have to get a shade or two darker than your loose powder one but in fact I went a shade lighter than my loose powder. It is amazing stuff!! Quicker to use and less mess. Awesome!!
I love READY
I've worn BE for years. People didn't think I wore makeup. I wasn't exactly happy about that, even though, I love the natural look. I felt like I spend good money for these products and it needs to look like I have on foundation. LOL. I bought READY as soon as it hit the store. It is easier to put on and doesn't have the mess. I tried using my kabuki brush with it and I didn't like the look. I bought the precision brush ... it makes all the difference. My morning regiment was taking too long and this minimized it greatly. I see the look on people that I don't know face ... some will pay me a great compliment and some just have this WOW look. I tried not to use the veil compact but, it looks much better with it. You do have to be careful not to get too much of the Ready or the veil on. Too much is just that ... too much. The color variation for me was from the original of med tan to golden deep in Ready. If you are going to use Ready ... get the right brushes!
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.
