READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I have a had a few issues with it. First, it is supposed to be hydrating (which I didn't know), and so it only pronounced my pores and my oily skin. It does have a nice natural finish, but I only see that in the morning before my oiliness makes it feel too thick. Second, I was not informed that I needed to be shade matched for the READY foundation, but you definitely do - a lot of the colors change their darkness/lightness, so I ended up disliking the shade I had bought since it was too dark.
I suggest for oily-skinned gals, like myself, to stick with the MATTE foundations. However, if you'd like to give it a try, go for it - I have heard that many people do love it, and it can be hot or miss for people, so you won't know until you try it.
I would get this foundation if you love full, natural-looking coverage, have dry skin (because it's hydrating), or love the convenience of the compact. it is a great product, just not right for me.
Full coverage with a natural look
I LOVE this foundation. I've been a BE user since 2005, and I recently tried this foundation compact, and it's pretty amazing for several reasons. First, it provides full coverage for your skin without a cakey look. Second, this handy compact is perfect to drop in a purse or gym bag and take with you for the occasional touch-up. Third, the color matches are amazing. I'm a fairly light user, and my pale skin looks luminous after using this. I will never use drugstore foundation again!
I am a HUGE HUGE fan of bare minerals LOOSE foundation. After trying every single foundation under the sun hoping to get a natural, dewy glow I finally found it with bare minerals and bare minerals alone. I tried this product out hoping that I would finally have something a little easier to pack in my purse and was sorely disappointed. First off, why do the colours not match the original foundation! This makes absolutely no sense, especially because I order online here in Canada and don't have the opportunity to get shade matched. Second, when you finally do put it on it goes on soooo incredibly thick! At first I thought it was my application technique or the brush because I couldn't believe bare minerals would create a foundation this bad. But unfortunately despite several attempts the end result was a cakey ghost face. I am still a fan of their original foundation and still use only bare minerals. I don't think I'll be trying any new products anytime soon unless I go into a store and they can prove me otherwise.
Best one yet
I have used bare minerals for years now and I love the product. However as I age I notice that I needed to switch foundations. The original foundation is great, but it is now a bit too "shimmery" for my skin. THe radience is just too much and it highlights my wrinkles too much and makes them very noticeable (not that there's anything wrong with wrinkles!) but my skin just didn't look as good anymore. i tried the matt finish and while that solved the original problem, it was a bit too drying on my skin. The new ready foundation ia AMAZING. I just love it, Find your new shade (because your shade will change with this formula) and be ready to be amazed at how great it covers, and how great if feels. Less luminosity than the original formula, but you still get a beautiful glow with no shimmer. I love how easy it is to put on, no muss no fuss and it FEELS good. Soft, smooth and it looks better than any of the others in my opinion. Truly like you are not wearing any makeup. I have had people who have known me for years come up to me and say, "you look great, what is different?" When I tell them I changed my makeup they don't believe i am wearing any. I have not had any problem with the makeup cracking or falling apart in the case and I have taken it in my purse and on vacations...... don't know what that is all about. Try this- you will love it.
I like it more than I hate it.
I am in search of full/maximum coverage without feeling heavy layers. I have adult acne and oily skin and therefore scarring to cover up. I also use maximum strength proactive which leaves my skin feeling tight, dry , and flaky. The ready foundation has worked really well! It gives me the full coverage I want and the much needed added moisture. I do have to blot my T-zone in the late afternoon but that's normal for my oily skin. The only thing I didn't like about this product is that it did make my large pores stand out more. I do recommend that you use this product with the precision foundation brush as it gives maximum coverage.
This is one of the worst foundation I have ever bought. It gets really cakey and made my skin very oily. I had high hopes for this product and I am very disappointed and it wasn't cheap either.
I am a huge fan of Bareminerals. I say this with great sadness. I did not like this product at all. The shade didn't the original. It felt super heavy. My pores looked much larger. This product did not blend very well.
I am still an avid fan of a lot of their products...except this one :)
Love this product! Has much better coverage that the original powder. I am 60, and it seems to have more moisture and cover flawlessly. Definitely a keeper.
I purchased my first ever B.M. starter set yesterday and I'm absolutely happy about my decision to buy. This is the first time buying makeup where I can actually get the makeup to match my skin perfectly. I got medium Tan.
I chose a medium shade of foundation. I absolutely love the product and how it makes my skin look, however; the medium shade was much too light. Normally medium is the correct shade, but with this foundation, I needed a darker shade.
