READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Bare Minerals, I can't quit you!
I used Bare Minerals Original Foundation for a year and when I ran out I went back to my "old faithful" (Clinique). I immediately started breaking out and my skin looked so shiny/oily by lunch time. I ordered the BM Ready Foundation with the Precision brush and the Ready Translucent powder with the Soft Focus brush. My skin literally started looking better after the first day I wore it! I will never switch away from Bare Minerals again! Lesson learned! I prefer the Ready foundation over the Original for the convenience of having a compact and I MUCH rather prefer the Precision brush over the Flawless brush I had with the Original. I wore Medium Beige in the Original and still wear it with Ready. I highly recommend this product, you won't regret it. My skin has never looked better!
The reason I returned to Bare Minerals
This is my absolutely most favorite product of Bare Minerals. The coverage is excellent. It's light. I can where it all day. I can sweat in it. I get compliments all the time. I don't break out from using it. In fact I had to discontinue using most foundations because they didn't where well over time and would make me break out. Please, please, please do not discontinue this product. I love it so, so, so much.
I have used this for a few years. I love the coverage for slight imperfections and it lasts a long time.
not the best
While I do love bareminerals in general, this foundation didn't work for me. I have very oily & dry skin. After a few hours, the foundation leaves a white-ish residue around my mouth and cheeks. It almost looks like I have really dry skin when it's just the foundation. Also, it settles into the lines on my forehead.
Best mineral foundation pressed form...
I have used this since it was first sold.. I kept hoping that BM would make the minerals in a pressed form... Love love love it... IT does everything it claims, long lasting full coverage, good for you, creamy feeling, and pore covering. I did have to go a shade darker than what I wear in the loose minerals. Find your shade and you will love it too !! Thx..
Not The Best.
It doesn't work very well with dehydrated or dry skin. It also doesn't work very well with my moisturizer. After applying, I had the "cakey" problem. I prefer the bareskin and original foundation.
I discovered this powder almost a year ago when I went to Sephora with the intention of buying a fundation from their own line. My skin is kind of pale and it was specially difficult for me to get a good light fundation that could match perfectly to my skinshade but, when the girl from the store told me about this foundation, I saw the result in my skin and I fell in love inmediately! It feels like if you were not wearing nothing at all, the result is amazing, very natural and it's perfect for everyday use... but it's important to find the color that matches your skin and this is another thing I really liked from this brand: they have a great variety of shades for their products so you only have to ask the proffesional of the store to find the right one for you.
If you are looking for weightless, and flawless finish - here's your product!
I love this product! I tried to use bare essentials in the early 2000's, and I bought multiple shades and tried to mix them numerous times to get the right shade and coverage and never found it. I was disappointed.
I tried this and never looked back! I was in a Sephora and couldn't believe the number of shades! I had one of their consultants take one look at my skin, pulled the shade and it matched! I bought the precision brush too. I just couldn't be happier and it's so NOT time consuming! (I'm flashing back to liquid foundation and heavy powders! The time it took to apply it just right and match the colors, blah, blah, blah! LOL) This is easy peasy and beautiful !
Second times a charm!
I was skeptical to try this again. My first experience was not good. But after getting shade matched, correctly, I'm loving this foundation! I have this in shade golden tan and I usually wear golden medium. The golden tan is a perfect match! It looked a little too dark, but once blended in, it is perfect! Plus my skin looks so smooth! I only gave it four stars because it doesn't seem to stay on as long as the original or matte in my t-zone, but it's not like its gone in a couple hours either. Over all, this product has become a quick favorite and I'm so glad I gave it another try. Definitely get shade matched if you didn't have a good first impression.
Great product but can't get a color match!
I love the simplicity of this product - just a few swipes and I'm done! I've been in the boutique at least three times to get color matched and sadly, I just am not happy with any color! I don't have this problem with any other BM foundation. The first time I bought Medium Tan (gosh, don't know what they call it now - so confusing with all the letters/numbers they assign to the products) and it matched fine. The next time I bought it, the color was too dark. I've tried Med Beige (too light) and Golden Beige (too yellow). Frustrating because the lighting in the store is so dim (goodness, you REALLY need to fix that in the Greenville, SC location!) and when you get home it's all UGH. Did you change the color formulations? All I know is I'd love to use it, but I can't. It would be so helpful if you keep the color names the same over the different foundation lines too!
