READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I have to say this new foundation is the best makeup I have ever had on my face in my whole life and I never thought I would say that about makeup. I have used loose Bare Minerals for years because I hate the feel of makeup on my face. I also have combination skin, eczema, and sensitive skin. I have to say if you apply this right it does stay all day. It also doesn't make my skin feel dry or oily. The original Bare Minerals started to irritate my skin and not stay on at all. By lunch time I was ready to wash my face. This kind doesn't feel that way at all and is still there even after my ten hour work day. My skin feels fresh and looks great!!!! You should try this new makeup. I'm so glad I did!!!!!
I had a difficult time trying to select a color. When I first opened the compact I thought it was going to be darker on, but it wears lighter than it looks. I may just get Medium to see how it wears, but this went on very well! I have been reading up on this for weeks and finally decided to just get it. My skin is a bit drier in the winter and it seems since turning 50 my skin has changed. I really like wearing my regualr foundation in Fairly Light-I find myself coming back to Bare Minerals from regular foundations. I tried this in 2008 and didn't think it could get better! My 30 yr old daughter just moved from TX to Germany and she will be trying this too!
This has always been something long awaited for me. I've been dedicated to BareMinerals for about 5 years now and have never looked back. Their foundation has always looked great on my skin and never broken me out, versus liquids which always reacted weird, since my skin tends to be pretty oily. So, needless to say, I've been devoted to the Matte Medium Beige since it came on the market. And when they came out with this... man, was I hooked. Medium works just great, and even though it isn't a "Matte" formula, I don't get that oily (nothing some mineral veil can't take care of!) I think the coverage is AMAZING (way better than the loose powder!) and it stays on throughout the day. Before, I'd come home from a typical day and my makeup was noticeably lighter than when i'd put it on that morning. With this, that is not the case! It stays on great.
My biggest complaint however is the MESS. Oh my goodness. When I bought this, I saw no point in investing in another brush... I'd gotten mine with the starter kit many years back and I loved it to death. However, the first time I put it into the foundation, it went EVERYWHERE. So, a word of a advice, do NOT swirl. You will regret it when you're covered in foundation (trust me... not a pleasant morning). Instead, tap into the pan. It works way better. Then, gently tap and swirl on your face. It gives great coverage. And just like with any BM foundation, a little goes a long way.
Because of the messy nature of this stuff, a lot of product gets wasted... I've had mine about 3 months and I've already hit pan, but luckily the sides are still built up. However, if you follow my tip above, it slows that process down... it just took me a while to figure it out. (;
Overall though, totally recommend! Just be careful!:)
Just put this on for the first time and I absolutely LOVE it and can tell a huge difference in coverage yet not heavy at all. I highly recommend going into a boutique to get your color shade done because it is NOT the same as the loose powder. My color with this is much darker but completely natural looking. Very pleased with this product. Bare Minerals fan for years from skin care to make-up.
Couldn't find a color match
The product itself was amazing. The coverage was great the only problem for me is that they could not find a color to match my skin. I normally wear the Matte-Beige and so they did a color match on me and said I work medium beige. Well when I got home and I put the product on along with my blush and eye shadow the product was way lighter. I looked like a ghost. I took it back to the store and they tried several different shades on me but nothing was a match.
I started using BE after hearing u can sleep in it and won't harm your face, I have been in n out of hospitals for over 15 years. And many times I walk in with make up on but not be able to wash my face for a day or more. We all know that is horrible for a face. Since I can't predict if I'll be in the hospital or passed out from meds. I invested in BE and it really has changed my life! my acne is so much better my pores are smaller face so soft. So I thought I'd tried the foundations, no complaints with the product other than it not being solid so when they offered this I RAN to the store to buy it. Truly amazing product, goes on smooth Evan and silky soft. I did buy the new precision brush, wanted more coverage, both are r perfect match for each other. You get the quality of the original foundation but in a solid. The colors do run lighter than original version so I would get matched again for this. I have changed ALL my make up to BE, Evan started using the skin line because it truly is an Amazing product, all of them.
Perfect for Travel
My normal BE foundation is the Golden Fair or Light MATTE loose powder. This came out and I was very excited to try it, the first couple times I wore the READY I buffed... bad idea.... the makeup looked terrible! But when i sweep it across my face and pat in the areas I need more coverage, it is flawless. I apply the READY with the precision face brush. Love to have this in my bag to make sure my skin is flawless all day long. Make sure to get a little darker than you wear in the Original or MATTE, this runs light.
This is sooooo good!
This is my second wearing day! And I am in love!!! This looks so natural and just plain BEAUTIFUL! I'm fourteen and have mild acne and some redness but this stuff gets rid of IT ALL! It gives your skin an amazing soft silky feeling with an amazing color! <3
PS: A little bit of blush, some chap stick and mascara and you've got yourself a model!!
I love it!!
I'm usually a matte "golden tan", but I get very dry in the winter,so I end up looking "powder-y".I vaguely remember reading about "Ready" in a magazine,so I looked for it here.I read the reviews,followed the" buy a shade darker "recommendation,& long story short,it's AWESOME!!!
Thanks for a great product!
Love it so much I'm ditching the loose powder!
I've been a fan of the loose powder for a while, and have used the original and matte products. Matte didn't work as well for me so I stuck with the original. It's been good generally, but sometimes my sensitive skin just feels itchy in it and the staying power hasn't been as good as I'd have liked -- especially on my nose. Still, I've liked it better than liquid foundations though I have also found that using a tinted moisturizer first has resulted in a better finished look for me. Recently I visited a boutique to take advantage of the larger sized foundation that's available only a few times a year but also bought a compact of the Ready foundation because I wanted one I could keep in my purse for touch-ups. They told me at the store that the two foundations are very different, and that a different type of brush was best for application, and that was all correct (I bought the little travel brush with the cover -- it's awesome). I like the Ready foundation MUCH more than the loose powder foundation now! Different brush, different type of application, goes on much faster and easier, the coverage is better and it feels fabulous. Seriously -- I'm not one for jumping around and trying different products. If I find something I like or even something that works I will often stick with it because I hate wasting money on products I end up not using because it doesn't look good on me or doesn't live up to the hype.
This stuff lives up to the hype. I have normal to dry fair sensitive skin, am 40 years old and have some issues with uneven skin tone and this foundation so far has been great for me! Definitely worth a try.
