READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Worst Foundation I've ever tried.
I'm a woman of color, (NW45 in mac) and Warm dark in the original formula, and this is by far the worst foundation I've ever tried. Extremely cakey and dry looking. I tried 3 different shades, and could not find a color to match me, meanwhile I match several shades in the loose powder formula. Huge disappointment.
I really wanted to like this foundation. I got a perfect color match using fairy light, and it looked amazing when I first applied it. You have to be very careful with this foundation to not over apply, or it will look really cakey as the day goes on. Even with applying a light layer using the flawless application brush, by the end of the day the texture didn't look as good in a few places on my face. The main reason for the rating I gave is that shortly after putting it on my face is so itchy. I have never had that problem with foundations before.
Love this product...but BM...needs to add more shades for people of color...I think BM should copy every shade for people of color from the MAC make up line
I think I found my foundation soul mate....
I am a long time bareMinerals user and although I love the product, I was never able to get an exact skin tone match (I was always between Light and Fairly Light) but I love the product so much I would opt for "ghost face" and add warmth. With this foundation, I am not sure if the shades are slightly different, but I have finally found my color match. On top of that, the foundation feels so soft and smooth on my skin, more so than the powder foundations. Also-unlike the powder foundations-I've made virtually no mess during my morning routine and I feel like a very tiny amount goes a very long way. This READY foundation has completely transformed my morning routine and it looks so RADIANT on my skin.
Another one hit out of the park, bareMinerals! Thank you!
I was using Mary Kay "mineral foundation" and the first ingredient is Talc-something they say if really not good for you skin. Over time i developed mild acne on my cheeks. After sleeping in Bare Escentuals foundation for 1 night I could already tell a difference in my cheeks. The following night I used the night serum sample I was sent and the next morning even better results. My mary kay went into the trash and I will forever be greatful for bare escentuals! The minerals in the foundation did the trick for me.
The BEST foundation ever!
This is truly the most amazing foundation I have ever found! I cannot believe how very well it covers my redness and with so small amount. I don't even have to use a cover stick anymore, just use a smaller brush to touch up areas that need more coverage. It feels light and it does NOT come off! This really stays on longer even than 12 hours and no matter how much I touch my face, brush up against things, etc. it stays on my face! I will use this forever. Thank you Leslie and Bare Escentuals.
Flawless on the Run
I was a long time user of the Bare Minerals Matte Foundation in Golden Fair, but it wasn't easy to do on the go and I always managed to make SUCH A MESS with it. So I switched to another foundation, which was just ok. Then I saw the READY foundation and decided to give it a try. Application and color matching really were key to using this product, but it has become my new favorite thing. I finally went into my local store and the stylist shade matched me from Golden Fair in the original foundation to a Medium Beige in the READY foundation! I was super surprised, but it really is an exact match and blends beautifully. I also bought the Precision Face Brush and using it with the READY foundation makes my pores look smaller, keeps the shine from my oily skin at bay, and it's long wearing with medium to full coverage. I love this product!
I've never loved a foundation more!
A friend's dermatologist recommended bare minerals to her as a gentle makeup option for her skin and I figured that made it worth a try for myself. I'm so glad I took a chance! I've had bad experiences with several other mineral makeup foundations drying out my skin or making any dry patches look awful. This ready foundation is in a league of its own, I tell my friends and family that it seems like magic! Just a few strokes of my super soft precision face brush and I've got a healthy, soft, natural, even looking complexion.
I switched to this from a liquid foundation and I'll never look back. I have fair, combination skin and this foundation has totally transformed my skin into what I've always wanted it to be! I've noticed a few negative reviews and that makes me sad for those that have given it a negative review because I honestly believe they weren't using the product correctly. My foundation is not messy at all because I just have to tap or push my brush into the compact, no swirling or stroking just pushing it in. This gives me enough powder to cover my entire face. Since I have started using this foundation I have experienced no new breakouts of acne and my skin feels softer than it ever has. I definitely recommend being shade matched because I never would have guessed the shade I ended up with (one that was darker than I expected), but it matches perfectly. For the first time in my life I am not worried about what my jaw line will look like when I leave the house and wonder if my face is going to blend in with my neck. I've received many comments on how clear and nice my skin looks for the first time which is wonderful. The foundation works really well as a concealer over old acne scars, doesn't settle into any under-eye wrinkles (a problem I had with liquid foundation) and does not bother my eyes at all! This seems to just become a part of my skin, evening it out, and covering unevenness. It doesn't rub off on clothes or anything like that which is awesome. How embarrassing is it when you hug someone and your makeup is left all over their shoulder? I finish my foundation routine with the BM Ready mineral veil in translucent and it sets my foundation for the day nicely. I throw that compact in my purse on the go and use it if I’m feeling oily or need a touch up and it works very well.
I could not recommend this product more. I'm hooked for life. The other bonus, it seems to last a really long time! I've been using this compact for a month and haven't even made a dent into the compact.
Take a chance on this product, watch the video tutorial on the BM page to apply it correctly and get shade matched. You’ll be SO glad that you did. I am in LOVE!
Before I bought this product I did some research and a lot of people (yourube vlogers mainly) said it was amazing! Well... I disagree. I wanted a vegan foundation and that had a good coverage but this s full coverage that makes it feel and look cakey and powdery! My skind is pretty healthy and is mixed so I when I put in on I just feel like I am wearing at least 5 products on my face than just one. It gives a too flat matte finish and has a bad effect when u take a pic with flash. I am medium shade and in pics wearing this I look like a ghost! I know this has SPF and that tends to happens but the effect is way too big.
Tried this on a whim
I was just browsing at Sephora in the mall. I saw this and thought I would give it a try. So far I love it. I have had so many people ask me why my skin is glowing. I have use BM original formula for over 8 years and I love it, but this product just may be my new favorite item. It makes my skin look smooth and bright and I have to mention its nice not spilling my product all over the bathroom sink when I open it. No complaints here.
