READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Wow! The commercials ar true!!
I was very skeptical about Bare Minerals as I am now at that age where the wrinkles are showing up, and like others, I had heard at this age that one shouldn't use powders as they only emphasize the fine lines and wrinkles. I have uneven skin tone so I needed some kind of foundation to even skin out -- after trying and rejecting MANY liquids, I was desperate...enough to to give Bare Minerals a try when they introduced Ready.
When used correctly, it gives a lovely airbushed look -- I even had 3-4 people comment that I looked younger; what was I doing? That's enough to convince me. There are a couple things to watch out for to ensure success --
1. Get shade matched. As others have pointed out, Ready wears differently than the original foundation - the colors are NOT the same.
2. Be sure to let your moisturizer and serum set BEFORE you apply Ready. This made all the difference in the world for me in getting the wrinkle-blurring airbrushed look I was after.
I had high hopes for this foundation but it falls flat. The ease of using was great but the colors are not aligned with the minerals. After applying a thin layer, it doesn't look natural, it has a flat look. Highly disappointed.
I couldnt use the original formula foundation- it made my skin itch all day, i guess from an ingredient. I saw that this was a new formula and that is was a compact- an idea which i LOVE! (i hated dealing with the loose powder).
I watched all of the videos for this product before I tried to apply it so that I knew what I was doing and it paid off. This is so buttery, full coverge if you want it, light if you dont and it looks flawless. Wonderful product!
This was my first Foundation
I lovee it, ive been using Bare Minerals Foundation for about 2 months && im already in love with it. It gives great coverage.
Perfect product for clear/ low brake outs
I LOVE this product because I don't brake out a lot (only sometimes) and liquid foundation is just more coverage than I need. I wouldn't say it covered up my brake outs but it did stop them from being shiny and bright red. I don't like cakey makeup and so this is really nice to have. If you have a little more red on your nose then you would like to have then this is the product for you! But (in my opinion) it doesn't fully cover brake outs.
I also recommend using Prime time foundation primer when you use this product.
I received this as a sample complementary product and I am planning on buying the original!
By far the best foundation
This foundation is literally the best. It glides on so easy and lasts all day! if you have red spots it will cover that up completely! if you use it to cover up acne it doesnt really make the spot disappear while you are using it however it makes it blend in. I would really recommend this product. This price is amazing for what its worth and i prefer the matte foundation rather than the powder
This is a great foundation!
I was a little skeptical switching from the original formula to the new pressed formula, but because my skin has recently decided to be more dry my original formula wasn't going on as nicely or I would get flakes in the middle of the day even with a moisturizer on before the makeup. I am going through a dryer phase, nothing extreme. But, since I saw that this one increases hydration and I was running out of my regular minerals, I decided to give this a try. I love it. I didn't have to switch shades like the other ladies. I normally wear golden fair or light, and I switched to this formula and still wear light. It goes on so quickly, I think it covers a little better than the original formula. I've been wearing it for a week and have been very satisfied. Now, because it was a little more expensive than the original formula I was kinda ehhh. It seems like the original formula has a lot more powder in it than this pressed one. But since I feel like I hardly use any of the pressed to get coverage maybe it will last as long as the original. Anyways, go to a counter and get your matched shade. It's great stuff!
I can't describe the long painful (and expensive) journey I undertook to find a foundation that would perfectly work for me! It's either that the shade is off, makes my face look cakey, not enough coverage, and so on...
I do have very bad skin, acne, enlarged pores, redness, and to top it all of super sensitive skin that hardly tolerates anything! I friend of mine is a BM rep, and she asked me if she could try out this new product (BM ready foundation) on me. I'm like sure, free make over, yay!!! So I'm sitting there and she gets to work...what felt like 10 seconds later...she goes: Tada I'm done! Me: OK???? One look into the mirror and I couldn't believe my eyes. My skin looked naturally beautiful. Perfect shade and full coverage. And it felt amazing!!! I bought it on the spot. I do not have the Precision Brush (yet) and use it with a foundation sponge and the results are just the same, but I do believe I use more product with the sponge then I would with the brush. So the brush is naturally on top of my shopping list!!! Oh, and also it didn't irritate my skin, or worsened my acne. I will update my review after I used it for a few weeks to see if it improved my skin...
You must try Ready Foundation
I have been using Bare Minerals since the very beginning and loved the loose foundation. I am 59 years old and now find that my skin is a bit dryer. I heard about the new ready foundation with it's moisturizing benefits and thought I'd give it a try.
I went to the Bare Escentuals boutique and had a make-under using the new ready foundation. It took a couple of tries to get the color correct because the new ready foundation color runs a little different. In the loose foundation I use Medium Beige and a little help I found that the color best for me was Medium Tan. It gives my skin an airbrush look which I really like.
Never going back to liquid foundation!
I was getting fed up with my makeup routine and with the fact that my makeup never quite match my skin tone. I also found that I kept breaking out no matter what kind of foundation I tried. I really just wanted to get my skin healthy again, and my friends all suggested Bare Minerals. I went to the store to get matched, and after using it for literally 3 days I can say that I will NEVER go back to any other of the drug store foundations I had been using! Not only does the makeup match my skin perfectly, I swear it is actually improving the quality of my skin. I find that my skin is less irritated, and the redness has gone down a lot.
I am someone who NEEDED full coverage makeup, and I never thought I could get that from a "loose powder". But after using Bare Minerals I feel like I finally found my perfect makeup- feels light, but gives me the great coverage I need...all while improving my skin so that I ultimately won't need to wear foundation every single day! Definitely go to the store to get matched. I think this makeup is an investment, and to get the best experience and most for your money it helps to consult the experts! They are very helpful.
