READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20
I've tried to like it!!
I am so frustrated with this product! When I first put it on, it was awesome! It had great coverage and looked so smooth and nice. I ordered it because even though I love the regular loose mineral foundation, it does make my face dry and settle in my fine lines. (I'm only 30, I don't have too many!) So after doing my makeup I left my house and didn't look in the mirror again for hours. I noticed a couple of people kind of looking at my face funny, and when I checked it out, I looked like a mess!!! It was completely caked around my nose and upper lip, and very settled in around my eyes. I did not get sweaty or oily...so I have no idea why it does this? Because, unfortunately, it does it every time. I have a flawless face brush that I use for application, and I really try to apply it lightly and how they tell you to. I am bummed to say the least!
I went to Sephora last week and lucked out. A Bare Escentual rep. from Indianapolis was there and helped me match the color. I looked best in what I normally wear in the summer. It is not as shinny as the original and not as matte as the matte formula which makes it just perfect. I also bought the new brush which I think helps a lot. A little bit goes a long way and the application technique is somewhat different, but when appllied correctly the coverage which is buildable is seamless.
Get a color match!
I ordered this online according to my regular color
choice in original. Big mistake! I normally use fairly
light, but had to go to medium beige in this formulation.
I never would have thought I should/could go that dark, but
the color I ordered would have looked terrible. I liked what
I saw when I switched. Still waiting on shipment to exchange
for correct color. Go darker (like light to medium) and know
your undertones if ordering online.
Only foundation I'll ever use again
I have used BE for years, but have bounced back and forth with other foundations because I felt I needed liquid foundation for better coverage--which usually just made me break out worse. I went in to BE right before coming back to school and thought I would give the new foundation a try. I was matched for color in the foundation, veil, blush, and bronzer. I got all 4. I was absolutely amazed with how flawless my face looked. I bought the new brush as well and when I came back to school my friends kept complimenting how great my skin looked. I am absolutely in love with this product and don't think I will ever change again!
Confindence in a Compact
The sales associate tested my skin and when she realized it was on the dryer side she recommended I try this foundation. She matched it to my skin (2 shades darker than what I had been using in the previous Bare Mineral foundation) and I was amazed at the difference. This make up made my skin look flawless. It covered my sun damage and made my skin glow. The next day at work I had several comments asking what I'd done differently. I felt like a new woman.
I've used Bare Minerals for ten years and loved it. I'm so glad they brought another product to make me feel like a million dollars.
Nothing like the original
The convenience of the compact is great but for me this foundation makes my face look very dry. I went into a boutique for a color match and they thought I should go with the same color I wear in the original (medium beige). Once I got it home and put it all over my face I really didn't like the color at all. It's hard to explain. It made my eyelids and under my eyes look bluish. Very strange. Too bad I was hoping I would love it
Wanted to love and I do but....
This product will clog your pores and may you BREAKOUT!! I have sensitive skin, which is the main reason I started using Bare Minerals. I needed new foundation about a month ago and decided to try READY. I wish I would have stuck with the Traditional that I have used for years. About 2 weeks after starting READY...I had the WORST breakout of my life. Had to be the foundation because nothing else in my skin care regiment had changed. I loved the coverage and the look of the foundation, just not the subsequent breakout. I am going back to the tried and true traditional and never straying again!
When I found out about the READY Foundation I was curious. I went and purchased some (after getting shade matched of course) and absolutely fell in love!! I know I've heard that you usually have to get a shade or two darker than your loose powder one but in fact I went a shade lighter than my loose powder. It is amazing stuff!! Quicker to use and less mess. Awesome!!
I love READY
I've worn BE for years. People didn't think I wore makeup. I wasn't exactly happy about that, even though, I love the natural look. I felt like I spend good money for these products and it needs to look like I have on foundation. LOL. I bought READY as soon as it hit the store. It is easier to put on and doesn't have the mess. I tried using my kabuki brush with it and I didn't like the look. I bought the precision brush ... it makes all the difference. My morning regiment was taking too long and this minimized it greatly. I see the look on people that I don't know face ... some will pay me a great compliment and some just have this WOW look. I tried not to use the veil compact but, it looks much better with it. You do have to be careful not to get too much of the Ready or the veil on. Too much is just that ... too much. The color variation for me was from the original of med tan to golden deep in Ready. If you are going to use Ready ... get the right brushes!
I checked in at the Bare Minerals Boutique for the color matching and was quickly set-up with the right color and the wonderful gift of seeing my complexion looking incredible. I've used BE for 7 years but at 62 have noticed I need more pop and glow. Figured it was time to try the newer foundations. I have some sun damage and natural aging issues but with this foundation I don't need to use as much nor do I need to use Bisque for concealing. Did I say Wow? Awesome and unbelieveable might be more accurate. Thanks BE!!!
