Rated 3 out of 5 by asp1 Great makeup but compact broke twice!
I love the foundation compact. Great light but effective long lasting coverage. I have purchased it twice. But both times, as time went on and about 60% of the makeup was gone, the remaining powder in the compact cracked and I had a lot of little pieces left. You basically have to throw it out after that because every time you open it you get the dust and powder everywhere. The item is well priced for great quality but this is the 2nd time this happened to me so I basically paid for about half of what I was able to use - so then it becomes very expensive when you think about what you pay for vs. what you can use! I know I could buy a powder jar and sifter so I could dump the remaining pieces into it and keep using the makeup - but really, this shouldn't be happening to begin with.
Rated 5 out of 5 by pjreeder Love this product but it's been out of stock in my shade forever
Have been using this product for several months now and can't say enough good about it. However, I've been trying to order more for several weeks now and it's always out of stock. Hope this doesn't mean they aren't making ti anymore!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Redness, Rosacea, Sensitive....Look No Further!
I used the original foundation about 10 years ago in my 40's. Skin was in good shape. Fast forward to 50's, menopause, and now ultra sensitive skin prone to redness and rosacea flare ups with occasional yeast infections. I have foundation from almost every line...liquid with chemical sunscreens that my skin cannot handle. Decided why not go back to Bare Minerals? I found this foundation and gave it a try. It's been the best thing. Hardly need concealer, a lot of the redness and bumps have disappeared. The precision brush is an absolute must with application! I also use Blemish Therapy on the bumps. I have stocked up on both products in case they are discontinued!

This product is amazing. By mistake I found out you don't have to use concealer. One day before I left for work, I realized I had too much concealer and makeup under my eyes and it looked very caked up. At the last minute I used a face wipe and removed everything on my face except my eye makeup. I took a chance and used the foundation under my eyes and realized I didn't need any concealer. I was so excited. I thought I had ruined my look, but I really enhanced it by taking off the concealer. Now I use this amazing product without concealer and I'm so excited. Preparation time is cut in half. I've tried other brands of makeup but wasn't happy with them. By far, Bare Minerals is the best ever! The coverage is phenomenal and last all day. I am very happy with this.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kimba2 Most exciting find in years!
For the past several years I have liked (but not loved) my choices in liquid and loose (mineral) powder foundations...and I had never found a pressed powder I liked even a little bit. So it came as a happy surprise that Bare Minerals created the most perfect foundation I have ever used in a pressed mineral powder form. READY foundation goes on smoothly and provides a flawless finish with a minimum of product. My skin looks young again - bright, dewy, and even-toned. The shade match is perfection - it matches my light medium "natural" color, while blending in the darker, sun-damaged spots. Application is a breeze with the angled brush. I can't say enough about this wonderful new foundation!

If you are unsure at all about the loose mineral makeup - you need to give this a try! I love this compact version of Bare Minerals! Get the Precision Face brush - it works wonderfully with this foundation. It melts into your skin and gives great coverage, but feels like nothing! Highly recommend!
Rated 5 out of 5 by courtneybeth 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by NeysaTT 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.
