READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null 4 5 256 256
I love this stuff! I am tempted to buy this stuff in bulk because Im so scared they'll discontinue it! I love love love my Ready makeup! I've used the original Bare Minerals before, but I gave up on it because it got messy and the amount I'd see on the counter made me think half of it was going down the drain, even though the coverage was flawless! Fast forward 2-3 years later. After using acne-assisting liquid makeup and still suffering from breakouts and even getting really expensive specialty makeup for acne that exacerbated the problem worse than over the counter stuff (not to mention no matter what shade I picked you could always tell I was wearing makeup!), I decided to try one last investment. I chose Ready makeup because it promised full coverage with ease of application, and that it is! You just do that little easy tap-tap and voila! Beautiful coverage, no make-up lines! And I literally don't have to wash my face before bed (in case I forget or I'm so exhausted I can't pry myself out of bed) and I wake up and my sensitive face has no blemishes and no yuck makeup transfer everywhere! AND! It's so much less messy than liquid foundation! You don't get your hands all gunky as you start your day! I will say that I like to think I'm fair skinned, but the light neutral version (R170), while blending in flawlessly, looks a little too light for my skin per my husband, even though I tried my best to shade match via the Internet. I ordered the medium neutral version last night (r250) so I'll try that out. If worse comes to worse, I can always blend. But I'm content with what I have and a bronzer so we'll see! The precision face brush is a must have with this product. It's expensive, but an investment (you'll never have to buy it again)! And the videos that show you how to use this product are short and informational. Very helpful! I'm SO excited. Im spending about twice as much as I was on drug store brands (and actually less than department store brands),but the pay off has been such a blessing. Worth every penny. Because I can't tell you how much I've spent on different foundations, acne cleansers, etc just to not use them. This product works GREAT over a normal moisturizer after dried. If you like eye shadow, it does not show up as well as it does on a liquid base (which is like its own primer), so a good idea would be to get the eyeshadow primer. Amazing, skin-nurturing, easily portable, non-messy beauty! Ohhhh I love this stuff! GREAT JOB BARE MINERALS! You're worth ALL the hype! Please don't stop making my makeup! 09/18/2014
Loove it! I have been using BM original loose formula for 10 years now but I feel like I need more coverage and was tired of the messy powder.. I tried the new bareskin liquid and it was a fail , to greasy and light coverage, I felt like it never set :( I wear shade med-biege in the loose BM , I ordered" Med-tan R3310" and it was an okay color match, to light--- but I really liked the coverage with pressed powder!! It really covered any red areas and the hyper-pigmentation !!I don't need to wear concealer!! I can work out and sweat and my make up is still on! The compact lasted only 5 weeks-- bummer because it so expensive! Next time around I ordered a shade darker " Golden Tan R330" and it a perfect match!! YAY!!! I really love the pressed powder it just cost more and I run out faster versus BM powder.. 09/10/2014
expected a lot more from BE I guess first of all I cannot understand why the shades of Ready don't match the she shades of the original foundation. Makes it impossible to purchase online, and not everyone is fortunate enough to live near a boutique to be color matched. Regardless, I have found the Ready to be very cakey. It is difficult to apply a light layer, so by the time I'm done my face looks heavy and thick with make. What I've always liked about BE is the natural look, but this in now way provides that. Very disappointed. Plus based on online comments and suggestions, not only do you end up with an expensive product that does not work, but you get fooled into thinking it will work if use the right brush, so there's another chunk of change spent without any better result. I hope BE will take all of reviews into consideration and really work on improving this product. The tap swirl and buff technique is so cumbersome. Having a Ready foundation would be so convenient, if only it worked. 08/27/2014
Finally! I've been struggling for the past year or so, trying to find foundation that matches my skin well, and also has a near flawless finish. I tried other brands, then the mineral powder, then finally I tried this just on a whim. The coverage is just amazing, you cant see any of my freckles through it, the finish is very smooth, almost air brush like. I absolutely love it. It also feels very light and it lasts all day. You may need to blot in the middle of the day but without any additional powder. If you're thinking about trying this you HAVE to do it. I cant imagine anyone will be disappointed. 08/25/2014
Full coverage + shade difference I started using Bare Minerals foundation in 2004. I loved it. However, when I started getting more redness in my face, along with some occasional mild acne, I switched back to liquid foundation for fuller coverage (and it was faster to 'fix' my redness/acne with a liquid). Now, after 3 years of liquid foundations, I had to stop because of some new skin problems. I just purchased the READY foundation in Golden Medium, since that is the shade I used for BM Matte. The coverage is really amazing. However, the Golden Medium was way too light on my skin. I had to exchange it for Golden Tan (which looks A LOT darker in the compact, but goes on lighter). I would recommend getting the shade one darker than you would normally use at Bare Minerals. I'm really impressed with this full coverage, velvety foundation! 08/23/2014
Keeps breaking! I absolutely love this foundation... it gives perfect coverage that I need everyday. It also feels light and airy. However, towards the end my compacts always break as in the makeup inside shatters and is no longer usable. Recently, I bought a new compact and the makeup shattered inside and the entire new compact was unusable. Its frustrating because you spend so much money and not all of it can be used. 08/01/2014
Covers acne I cannot say enough about this product and how it helped me through a bad acne breakout. You cannot put it on heavy or you'll look ridiculous. I used their concealer for the acne leas ions. Also warmth, and a blush. They helped to take the emphasis off the acne. The girl at the BM store was more than nice when she did this mini makeover! I now only use the original foundation and Ready on special occasions because I find it to be more moisturizing than the original and I want my face to be as clear as possible. The concealer I don't think clogged my pores but I watch these products as an acne sufferer. I usually walk around with no makeup for the lesions to heal. 07/30/2014
What's with the color change?!? I started using/switched to the Ready foundation formula about a yr ago (switched from the traditional loose mineral formula, which I had used for yrs). Found its coverage to be comparable and really liked that it was less messy & more user friendly in my purse or with travel. I always wore the "medium" in the loose mineral, but found the "medium beige" in the Ready to be a closer match to the "medium" in the loose, which I had always loved. Fast forward to now, I was out of my Ready Med Bg. Due to convenience, I usually order online b/c the closest store to me is several miles away. However, this time I happened to be in that neck of the woods, so I went by the BE store and purchased another Ready in Med. Bg., which I had been using for over 6 mos & was very happy with. Got the new replacement home, and it looked yellow on my skin versus the usual slightly pink to neutral undertones. I visually compared it to the old Med Bg in natural lighting & there is DEFINITELY a difference!! Thinking the store clerk may have accidentally picked up the wrong color or misunderstood my request (she got the product for me, I did not remove from store shelf myself), I compared the numbers on the back of the compact. They WERE different!! Old Med Bg was N20, but the store clerk gave me one that said R250. So I was convinced she sold me he wrong one & was going to try & return it. HOWEVER... I just now looked online to order another Med Bg and OMG, it is now indeed R250!! (WTHeck?!?) The store clerk did NOT make an error; BE has apparently CHANGED the color. I have no dang idea which color NOW translates into the old Med Bg. I have been a loyal customer for years, and did not see any communication via website or otherwise that they were changing up the colors. This stuff is not exactly cheap either!!! What is the deal?!? I would have ordinarily given this product a 4-5 star rating, but given the schizo color change that makes me look jaundiced, it now has only 2 stars. I am sooo disappointed. Would have continued to buy this product for many, many more yrs, but not now. :( 07/07/2014
Runs lighter in color I love the Bare Mineral formula and how it feels on my skin. It's weightless and doesn't cause my skin to react. I love the pressed powder, it goes on smooth, has a light matte finish and doesn't move throughout the day. Many products make my skin react. Between clogged pores, redness, and rashes I've learned that this brand works well for me. I've tried every foundation they make and love each one for different reasons. I go back and forth between liking the pressed and loose powders but I think I do like the pressed better. I feel like I get more out of it and can use less to get the same amount of coverage as the loose powder. My one complaint is that it does run about a shade lighter in the same color as the original and matte formulas. 06/16/2014
On the go necessity The is a must have compact in your make up bag. Great for touch ups while on the go. Affordable and lasts long. Works great with the mini kabuki brush. 06/14/2014
