READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I was hesitant to buy this but, oily skin is very different than moisture in this product. So, I tried it, I love it! No mess, glides on like silk, and the coverage is Amazing! And doesn't look or feel like make up! I never wrote a review, but tired of wasting my money, so been doing a lot of research before I buy!
Great Concealer, foundation
For those suffering from acne, this is the product for you. It holds all day long, covers all blemishes, severe acne and scarring in a flawless manner.
It does get a little messy when you swirl the make-up brush, but absolutely worthwhile.
GREAT PRODUCT! Same delicate powder for sensitive skin.
YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS PRODUCT
I had tried bare minerals original before and was not quite convinced to give up my liquid foundation. I read that READY foundation by Bare Minerals was very moisturizing. I bought it at Sephora (they helpd me choose my color) and I fell in love with it. READY covers my rosacea, does not settle into my lines and wrinkles and DOES NOT DRY MY SKIN. It lasts pratically all day and I love it. It really is worthwhile to give READY foundation a try because it is WONDERFUL.
Why oh why did I wait so long to try this!?
I bought the foundation yesterday and so today would be my second day wearing the ready. I went to a BE Boutique to get matched since there are so many reviews encouraging to do it. Well, for me, I am actually the same shade in the Original as in the Ready and in the Matte I can't find a good color, but I am glad that I tried different shades. I am light/medium skinned and neutral/yellow undertone (Hispanic) so I was matched as Medium Beige.
I live in SE GA which is very hot and humid and my foundation stood up to all the humidity we had today. For me this definitely stayed on my face compared to the loose powder. The loose powder will "run" off my face and come off I try to blot with a paper towel or an oil control sheet.
I REALLY LOVE how this formula does NOT make my face itch. The original formula made me want to claw my face off and the matte made my skin feel oily and mask-y even though it's made to help control the oil. The Ready is so light weight that I had forgotten that I was wearing make up at all! Now I need to find someone who needs my loose power foundation because I found a new love <3 <3<3
In all I LOVE all the Ready products!!
I will definitely recommend this to all my sister and all my friends!!
Love READY products
I was a big Bare Minerals fan a few years ago, but the Original foundation just wasn't working for me last year. Not enough coverage, sometimes was too dark for me (even though I wore Fair!), but the fact that it didn't make me break out outweighed all those. Eventually, I tried to jump on the MAC bandwagon. The foundation is too thick - I mean, my skin couldn't even breathe! I would constantly have pimples when I'd never had them like that before. I ended up hearing about the READY foundation a while back and last night I caved.
I LOVE IT! No touching up throughout the day. The makeup has great coverage, but I don't even feel like I'm wearing makeup. I'm going to go ahead and warn you not to order this online the first time. Head to the store instead. You have to be color matched for this product. Like I mentioned before, I wore Fair in the Original because I am so pale. In the READY line I wear Medium! That's a big difference. They'll also show you how to apply it since it's a different technique.
Only negative - The kits don't come with the Precision makeup brush. There should be a combo somehow.
This is a wonderful addition to the foundation line! I still love the original foundation the best because of the luminous finish, but READY is a close second because of her incredible staying power and no-mess convenience. I use the Precision Face brush to apply for a full-coverage look, and WOW! it takes no time at all to create beautiful flawless skin! I always get at least 10 hours of wear without a touch up. In fact, I only touch up because my other makeup is not lasting as long. There is a learning curve to READY, but once you get the hang of it, she is so worth it!
Great On the Go, Only wished would bring a Sponge
I am a faithful consumer of the Original Foundation, but I definitely needed a powder/foundation for On the Go as well. Like others that mention it, I was a little doubtful on purchasing this item because of some negative reviews. However, those reviews compensated with the positive ones and they both helped me figure out that what I needed to do was apply Ready with a makeup sponge and not a brush. (I believe this was mentioned in another review as well.) For me, the brush and the swirl, tap, buff recommenation works great with any loose foundation or powder, but definitely not with a pressed one. I really think that it´s wasted a lot with a brush and the application is not as easy and even. And besides, who wants to carry a brush when you are on the go? Yes, a little goes a long way, so you only need to smear the sponge lightly on Ready and then spread it on your face. Do that a couple of times and you will be all set to go. (I´m attaching a picture of the sponge I use.) I´ve been really impressed with the full coverage, long lasting but yet so natural, light weight look I get. 10 points for that! Yes, if you use Original you will find this a little matte, but I guess that tends to happen with any pressed foundation or powder and I really didn´t find it that bad. And I can see how some customers may need to go a shade darker, but I stayed with the same one I use for Original which is Medium Beige. The only thing I would recommend Bare Escentuals (if they believe the sponge can work better) is to include it on the case, just how all pressed powder/foundations on the market come for obvious practical reasons.
Went back to the Matte
The Ready Foundation shades did not match well with my complexion. Even though it felt good on, it is a heavier foundation. I did not like how the foundation looked at noon. My pores and wrinkles were caked with the foundation and it looked like I had applied the makeup 24 hours ago. I thought I put too much on but that was not the case. I tried putting Veil on first and that helped some. I went back to Matte.
Best foundation ever!
I've tried the original foundation, matte foundation and this is simply the BEST. It has good coverage and yet it doesn't look as "thick" as the loose powder foundation. It is very EASY to apply with the precision brush, and it is handy to have it carried around too!
Never going back to another foundation!
I received a sample of the READY foundation in the mail and I went to the store the next day to buy it! I used to use liquid foundations, but they were always too heavy and never looked natural. The READY foundation looks like my skin– only better! I really love it! I wear the lightest shade in foundation, but I purchased Medium because of the pink undertone. I also use Fairly Medium (also with a pink undertone) in the winter. The pink undertone works best for me and probably other redheads too. I really recommend this product!
