READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I wanted to let you knoa about my experiences with the new READY foundation. Mind you, I have been a Bare Escentuals customers since 2007. I have used your regular foundation and Matte foundation throughout the past 5 years. And I have to say that I absolutely love the Original Foundation and all of your eye colors and mascara. However, recently I have been busy and have found that I haven't had time to do my makeup as much because of my busy schedule, so I opted to try the READY foundation. I went in, got matched for the READY foundation and was very happy. So I decided to purchase it. However, this has turned into a mistake. Since purchasing the READY foundation, I have NOT liked it at all. The first day I wore it, it didn't even last 4 hours before my looked as though I didn't have any makeup on (yes I have the correct brush - i also purchased that#. You could see the redness and pimples. I thought that at first it was due because I only had the face primer on and not moisturizer on. So I gave it another try. Next time I wore it, I prepped my face - cleaned, moisturized, and primer #yes all YOUR products b/c I love them!# and then put my READY foundation on and followed with warmth, and mineral veil, and blush. I looked in the mirror and I looked like a ghost!! I couldn't believe it! I NEVER look like a ghost with the Original even in the winter when I was pale. I thought it might take time to warm on my face - but it didnt. I had several people #at family event) ask me if I was okay because I looked extremely pale, more than usual. I was sooo upset. However, after another few hours - it was gone. It looked like I had never put makeup on. This has happened every time I've used the READY foundation. A similar situation happened last night - and honestly it wasn't until I saw a picture of me and my makeup this morning that I've decided I was DONE with the READY foundation. Mind you, I haven't even had this for a month yet and I already HATE it. I'm very disappointed and . I have NEVER said this about your products, but I've honestly had too much of this. Its absolutely ridiculous that I've spent a good amount on two items that are terrible and the fact that I have too much left, I'm left on not know what to do. This needs to be fixed, as I have done research that I'm not the only one this has happened to. Needless to say, I will never by any READY products again. Very disappointed!!
Very Nice Foundation
Love the natural colors & that the coverage can be controlled to what is needed for each occasion. Smooth finish & no-makeup feel. Covers imperfections beautifully.
I have recently been making the switch from loose to Ready for the sake of convenience, due to my make up routine getting quite extensive. I also wanted to find a solid foundation without dimethicone in it. There are very few make up products out there without dimethicone, and ladies, it is NOT good for your skin! You may get the glowey, dewey look from it now, but in the long run, it is not worth it. BE truly is great about putting ingredients that are good for your skin in their products. I have been a long time BE matte user--matte is amazing, flawless, gorgeous and perfect for my oily skin type. I was about to send back the Ready foundation when using the precision face brush because I got more coverage than I wanted to. I also was shade matched incorrectly at first. I discovered two things in this process: use the new tapered face brush with the Ready foundation if you want light to medium coverage. If you want heavier coverage, use the precision face brush. Also, the Ready seems to be a tid bit lighter than the "equivalent" matte or original shades--you may need to take the shade a notch darker if you decide to use this. My only disappointment is that it is not more mattifying.
The best foundation ever!
I've had moderate acne my whole life, and have never found a foundation that will give me the coverage I need. I've tried everything, even the priciest liquids and creams, with no results. But then, I found Ready. I can't believe that this natural, mineral-based powder gives me full, flawless coverage! It's truly the greatest foundation I've ever used, and my skin clarity has even improved since I've started using it. I would recommend it to anyone!
Great for anyone new to BareMinerals
I used to wear drugstore makeup brands (cream and liquid foundations) and when I was introduced to BareMinerals, I started out wearing Original Matte Foundation and had a hard time with how light the coverage was unless I did 3-4 applications. Then I found READY foundation and I love it! It provides great coverage that is still light and breathable.
My only concern/recommendation: be sure to use a brush like the Precision Face brush rather than something like the Flawless Face brush. You'll get much fuller coverage and more product on the brush (I was wasting tons of product using the Flawless Face brush!)
More on the Color Match Problem
I have used BE exclusively for many years, and the loose foundation in Medium Beige is perfect. When Ready was introduced, I ordered it in that shade. This was before suggestions began to appear that your regular shade might be too light. It really was and looked chalky and mask-like on my face totally unlike what I am used to from BE. I recently ordered another in Medium Tan, and it is PERFECT, not like makeup at all-just pretty skin. Unfortunately, I have an almost new Medium Beige compact, but it was worth it. I will continue to use my loose foundation at home, but the Ready is great to keep in your purse and for travel.
I've been using a different brand for years and decided to try BE because of the reviews. I was color matched to golden tan but when I got into my car I checked it was too dark. So I exchange it and was suggested to try medium tan and I was told I can't use anything lighter than what they gave me. Unfortunately, I still think it's a little dark so I just returned the foundation.
Bad color match!
Love the texture, the staying power, but the color is totally wrong, way too yellow. I suppose I chose wrongly, but I followed their suggestion for the shade. I would love to try again, but don't want to make another expensive mistake.
It ends here.
I'm 50 and I am having the best skin of my life. I can not begin to explain the amazing results I am benefitting from the Bare Minerals line of skin care and make up. Regarding the new Ready make up... I have incorporated into my (growing) BM collection to cover up the dark spots on my face. I just received the primer with tint/SPF and, together, I look perfectly natural, everything I want my skin to be.
Goodbye Liquid Foundation…Hello bareMinerals
I have ALWAYS been a liquid foundation girl. I NEVER EVER buy from the drug store. It is always top shelf foundation. The more expensive the better, right? WRONG…… On a whim I decided to try bareMinerals foundation. Not really expecting to like it but I had nothing to lose. I just got it today and can not believe I have not tried it until today. I can say I'm officially a bareMinerals girl. The coverage is superb and feels great on my skin. My complexion looks flawless. I can't wait to "get ready" tomorrow morning:)
