READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null 4 5 265 265
Great, but keeps me oily I love this when I put it on. It feels like silk, but 2 hours into my day I'm checking my face for oil. I do love this product but unfortunately keeps me very oily. If you have oily skin this isn't the product for you. If not, it'll be your best friend! 01/10/2015
AMAZING I have been using the original bare minerals powder for about 10 years and it worked great ! But as time went by, I started to age of course lol. I needed more coverage and something faster than the swirl, tap and buff. I have found it Ladies ! After reading reviews for a long time, I finally decided to try this foundation. Ignore the negative reviews because I honestly can't see why it's not working for them. It goes on flawlessly without leaving horrible lines or non covered blotches on face. It may seem expensive but its really not because it last a very long time. I like full coverage and it still doesn't take much to get the coverage I want. It takes years off your appearance. I do use a primer under my foundation and I wear it for over 12 hours and its still as good as when I put it on. I had wore it to bed one night just to see how it would hold up because the original one would be rubbed off by the morning, however, the ready foundation was still put and looked great ! This is a pure miracle for us women. My husband even loves how natural it looks. Please try this foundation ladies because it will change your view of makeup. I love it so much that I want to buy another one right now and I'm not even close to being out . What a great product Bare Minerals ! Please don't ever discontinue this product. I'm in love... 01/02/2015
So Glad I Found My Holy Grail I went shopping with my daughter at an outlet mall with plans to go to a regular mall and hit the BE boutique. I looked up and there was a Bareescentuals! Years ago I had tried the regular powder but was never able to get the right match. With the addition of three different foundations and/or colors I thought I'd give it another try. I've used liquid foundations for years, but at 59 my makeup needs have changed. I wanted buildable coverage that was quick and easy so thought I'd try the new serum foundation. The rep had me try the Ready and I was hooked. Color was perfect, coverage was perfect and the Precision brush was perfect. When I got home I played some more - one side of my face light coverage, the other side medium. Easy to do and even the medium gave me a natural even glow. I then went on to full coverage and while you could tell I had makeup on it was an even finish that did not look overdone. My super dry skin did not look cakey and had a lovely satiny-matte finish before I even put on blush or highlighter. Love this product. I'm back to BE! 12/27/2014
Great long lasting coverage . I am 21 and have been wearing Bare minerals for 5 years now. Anytime something new is out I am always excited to try it. This foundation is the best at long lasting full coverage. BUT!! It tends to make my smile lines stand out even with the primer. I have also tried the Porefessional under this makeup (for my smile lines) and it still seems to make them stand out. Other than that this makeup is great!! 12/10/2014
Great Product! I have been a loyal BM shopper since it started on QVC only. I liked the loose foundation but being a natural accident prone/mess making person it was always getting spilled and wasted. I was so excited when this first came out and have been using ever since. Using the brush made for it is important. If you use the old loose foundation brush with the solid foundation it goes on very thick and cakey. I have greasy skin/acne prone and this product does not aggravate it at all. I have also tried the new liquid foundation and have come back to the solid. 12/07/2014
Not worth your money..... I recently visited my dermatologist, who subjected me to a twenty minute rant about how basically all drugstore and most high-end makeup is terrible for the skin. He then gave me a "list" of products I could use ( the only things on the list were Bare MInerals and Almay). Therefore, I immediately went to my local makeup store to purchase a Bare Minerals foundation. First of all, no bare mineral foundation actually serves more than one function (i.e. one mattified, but had no coverage, while another had coverage but was terrible for oily skin). I finally decided on this foundation, because, as a worker told me,"well, it doesn't add any extra oil to the skin, and it has medium coverage". When I put it on, it was cakey, powdery, and completely unnatural looking. It settled into my pores, even though I had used Bare Mineral's oil and pore eliminating primer (another failure), leaving me with a polka-dotted yellowish face. Unfortunately, this is one of my only options for foundation, so I have to get used to it :( 11/27/2014
Love it! I'm loving this more and more. I wasn't so sure at first because I was using too much product. All it takes is one tap and then long swipes across my face with the precision face brush. I do one layer like that, repeating the one tap at a time until my face is covered, then I go back with the regular face brush and add a little just to the spots that need it. I have very fair skin and Medium R210 is perfect for me. (I'm 53 with sensitive, dryish skin.) I'm so happy I gave this a try! 10/08/2014
Great for Touch Ups! I bought this product hoping to have my favorite foundation more readily available to me at work, since I work anywhere from 8 to 10 hour shifts. And it is a high-pace environment, so sweat happens. The product is small enough to fit in my small hand-purse (it is literally a hand-purse), and it works great for the touch ups I need to do. I bought BM travel-size face brush, and I use it with the READY foundation. However, the only complaint is I feel like a lose a lot of product due to the nature of the brush. I wish I had a better applicator for READY foundation. Other than that though, the coverage is great and portable for sure! 10/01/2014
Pls don't ever discontinue or change this product! Let me first start by saying that I hope the READY Foundation never gets discontinued or changed. This is a quality product that has changed my view of foundation. ~THE FEEL OF THIS PRODUCT..... When I apply this foundation it feels like I have nothing on my face. I often times forget I'm wearing it because it feels like my natural skin. This is something I love as I am not a big foundation wearer. My husband always tells me he likes me without foundation but when I wear READY bare minerals foundation he told me he likes it equally as well as my bare face look... That makes me happy.. :) ~MY SKINS RESPONSE TO THIS FOUNDATION..... I have dry, sensitive skin that likes to crack and get dry blotches when I wear any foundation. It also is very prone to breakouts and bumps when I use foundation. I have tried countless foundations and I've always been bitterly disappointed with my skins response to them... I.e. breakouts and dry cracked skin... I have been using bare minerals READY foundation for about a month now and I can wholeheartedly and honestly say my skin has actually IMPROVED since wearing it. I have the clearest skin that I've had in years and my skin has a subtle glow that I am loving. So if I decide not the wear foundation on some days I'm proud to show my healthy skin ~APPLICATION AND PACKAGING..... Applying this product is simple in my opinion. I use a sigma f80 flat top kabuki brush... As long as you have a dense flat top brush you can get a beautiful finish. Be light handed when dipping into the product. Place brush on product and very lightly push(don't swirl!!!!) then apply to 1section of your face at a time in long soft strokes again not swirling your brush on your face either. Get more product in same manner as previously stated. Do this in layers until you build up to the coverage you desire. It's quick and surprisingly easy. Blends beautifully and only takes a few minutes. Packaging is beautiful and sleek. Easy to carry and non-messy. ~OVERALL SUMMARY... Great product. I will continue to purchase as long as they don't discontinue it or change it. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Definitely get color matched as the colors aren't the same as their other foundations. My holy grail foundation because it doesn't cause me ANY breakouts, looks airbrushed and flawless, light and natural felling, gives me a little boost of confidence, and actually improves my natural skin. Hope this is helpful!!:) 09/28/2014
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

It hasn't been very long since I purchased READY in fairly light, but it looks like that's no longer available. Is medium light the same color?

A: 
Fairly Medium isn't the same because you were using a neutral undertone and this one has a pink undertone. Medium Beige would probably be the closest to the one you were using. Go to a store that sells it and have them put some on your face in this shade.

Honestly the best way to apply in my opinion is with a dense flat top brush. I personally love the sigma f80 flat top kabuki... That's what I use and I get so many compliments that my skin looks natural and flawless... If your going to use such a great foundation you might as well get the best result by using a good brush. Bare minerals has their READY Precision Face Brush that works great also... Hope this helps... I probably wouldn't use a cotton ball though

A: 
The only successful way to apply this makeup, since really it's a compact powder, is to use the precision face brush. There's a great video on the foundation's page that shows you how to tap and then apply in long strokes, and it results in AMAZING coverage. The way the foundation is made there's just not really a good way to get around using it or a kabuki brush. I know it's a little pricey but it is SO worth it and you never have to buy it again-- this coming from someone who doesn't have very many pennies to spare! Hope this helps!

I think a brush is needed, a cotton ball or your fingers will just put the product in one spot. This foundation blends so nicely into the skin, but it won't without a brush in my opinion. I left my Precision Face Brush at my vacation home, and now use a big fluffy brush, or a mini kabuki, and get a nice medium coverage.

With me, a really good moisturizer before I put the base on has done wonders for this. If the more you out on, the more bothersome it is, you could also probably stand to have a darker foundation. I'm fair but had to go from R170 to R250. Hope this helps ya!

A: 
I am not a professional makeup artist or anything but I have tried both formulas and work outside no matter how hot or cold it is.

I think (at least with my skin, yours may be different) they both last about the same in the heat and they both will wipe off while using a napkin. I have used both with and without primer. The Ready foundation, I feel, does a little better than Bareskin without a primer as far as last power. However, while using a primer, I feel the Bareskin does better and looks better throughout the day (more natural, not like a mask) while working in the heat and sweating (a lot).

A: 
It's general rule that you'll be one shade darker than the Original formula in the Ready foundation. However, after my experience, if you can get to a boutique or anywhere that sells it so you can test it first and/or be shade matched, that's the best.

I've heard of other people using other foundation brushes to apply the ready foundation. I have the precision face brush. I love the brush because it picks up just enough product and blends it so well over my whole face. This brush is very soft as well.

I would think almost any brush would work but I definitely think you should use a brush to get it blended well
