READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null 4 5 249 249
Best foundation on the market! My skin was always a challenge for me - acne prone, sensitive, allergy prone, and combination areas. I tried Bare Minerals four years ago and I've been using it since. The READY Foundation is my favorite. I prefer it to the Original loose powder foundations. My suggestions for best results: 1) Get "Color-matched". It applies lighter than the loose powders. 2) Invest in the Precision Face Brush. It saves time and product. I use very little product and light strokes. I get numerous compliments on my skin. 07/09/2013
No way I've used the loose powder for years. I was ready for a little more coverage and welcomed the new compact version. This foundation was not for me. It did not go on smoothly and did not blend well (I also purchased the recommended brush). It accentuated every wrinkle and poor on my face even with a primer. My face looks very flat and matted. I agree with the other reviewer that is was a very unnatural look. I am taking this back right away! 07/06/2013
It takes some practice, but it's worth it! So, I see around online that there are a lot of complaints about the shades, the loss of product, etc. and I totally understand the frustration. Hopefully this review will help with some of that. First of all, yeah, you'll need to get shade matched for the pressed Ready foundation. Which sucks, I know - if you can't get to a Sephora or a Bare Minerals store, if you have to order online, then what do you do? I think Bare Minerals should have taken some extra time, if that's what was necessary, to do some extra work and make sure the shades matched in the pressed and the loose. It's a problem in their matte formulation too - they didn't shade match that either, and it's way too dark in every shade, even Fair. But I don't like the matte, so it's not a problem for me, but I can see it being problematic for others. In the loose original BM, I'm straight up Golden Fair. But in the pressed Ready foundation, I'm Fairly Light, which I could never ever wear in the loose. All that being said, I LOVE the way the pressed Fairly Light matches my skin tone. It's as close to perfect as I've ever gotten. So my advice is, if you can get shade matched, it's well worth it. As for applying it - yes, there is a trick. The girl at the BM store said it's completely different than the usual "swirl/tap/buff" method. First, if you have a flat-topped brush, it works much better than a kabuki. Second, very very gently tap the top of the brush directly down onto the foundation, don't sweep it across. Sweeping it will give you too much fallout of product, and you'll have nowhere to put it. So a straight down tapping motion with a flat brush, almost like you were blotting the powder with the brush, gets enough on there without a lot of fallout and wasted product, and without getting too much onto your face at once. Then begin applying as normal. You may have to do a couple of lighter layers with this method, and build it more, but it's worth it. Just remember to use a very, very light hand with getting it onto the brush. Hope all of this helps! I love this enough that I truly think it deserves a full five hearts. The more I wear this, the more I love it even more than the regular loose! Once you get the right application down with the right brush, the coverage and finish are gorgeous! 07/05/2013
Cakey Disappointment After using the original foundation for three years then switching to the matte foundation for another three years, I tried the Ready foundation when hearing so much praise from the Bare Escentuals saleslady. I was so excited to try the new foundation that was compact, had a built-in mirror, and was supposed to last 4 hours longer. What a disappointment. I have worn the Ready foundation many times now, and every time I put it on I somehow convince myself the outcome will be different. But no, it is always cakey and always too pale. It's like putting on a new layer of skin that's WORSE than your own skin that you're trying to cover up! What is make-up for again??? Now I'm $30 short and racking my brain to figure out if I can give this foundation to someone so it won't go to waste. In the end, I know it'll go in the trash cause I'm not a mean enough person to let a friend wear such cakey make-up. Back to matte I go, which is another $30...but it was really $60 since it took the first $30 to realize that I should've just bought the matte foundation in the first place. 07/04/2013
Wanted to love it, but... Gosh, this sounded perfect! More moisturizing, amazing coverage, long wearing....but there isn't a color for me. I'm a perfect medium beige in the powder, but in the Ready, it looks chalky. With summer approaching, we decided that medium tan was my best bet. But it is too dark, and it just isn't right. LESLIE, GIVE US MORE COLORS!!! PLEASE.!?? 07/04/2013
READY to be Fabulous This foundation covers much better than the loose powder foundation, but is still as light as the loose powder. The only downfall is that it does not last all day 07/03/2013
love Love LOVE!!! I can not say how much I love this product. Don't get me wrong, I liked the loose powder, but this gives me more coverage in half the time. I have very oily skin, and so the loose powder didn't last all day for me. This comes pretty darn close. I use the oil control primer, then a little mineral veil, then I use the foundation. It takes all of 30 seconds to apply and I have great flawless healthly looking skin (great coverage even over my few blemishes as well) I always put a little mineral veil on top of the foundation for a little extra oil control. Without touch ups, I am a little oily at the end of the day, but nothing major. At night I am always surprised when I look in the mirror and see that I still have about 85% of the coverage that I started the morning with. :) (although I got to thinking that I rest my face on my hands a lot at work while reading something, so this could have something to do with the loss of coverage) I love Ready, and will never go back to anything else. 07/01/2013
Great coverage, not long-lasting Disclaimer: I have super super oily skin, which means NO foundation lasts through the day. This is no exception. I do not use any moisturizer on my skin other than the Multi-wrinkle Repair and the Primer for oily skin. But oily and hydrated are not the same, so I really like that this is hydrating and the coverage is shockingly good. I also find that the wear improves by a final touch with the Ready Mineral Veil. Never liked the BM loose mineral products, what a mess! But have become a total convert to the brand thanks to the Ready product line! 06/27/2013
Love READY foundation i have oily skin and do not like the feel of liquid makeup, but need something with more coverage than a basic powder. READY foundation is perfect! i love the way it goes on...effortless. it covers and gives me the powdery finish all day without separating in the memphis summer humidity. i use it with the oil control primer and the mineral veil with sparkles in it. 06/27/2013
Great coverage and lasts all day I have very oily skin and occasional blemishes. This foundation when used on top of the mineral veil stays put all day even when I sweat. It covers blemishes and imperfections well. It is easy to get too much on so go easy when using it. I love the compact and the ease of using the product. 06/22/2013
