READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
A True Favorite
I have used bareMinerals for years and did not believe it could be improved. This is a great way to bring your bareMinerals with you on the go for a no mess application or touch up.
Best Makeup I've Ever Worn
I never write product reviews, but I wanted to share my experience because this has become one of my favorite products ever. I've been using Bare Minerals foundation for about 4 years now, and I loved the original loose powder foundation.
I love the Ready Foundation even more.
I have problem skin, so I've tried everything form Neutrogena to Clinique, and this is by far my favorite--This is the best makeup I've ever worn. It takes so much less time to apply than the loose powder, which is ideal for busy mornings, and it gives me even more coverage. It also keeps oil under control throughout the day and leaves my skin soft after I take it off. It's easier to use on-the-go, too.
I highly recommend this makeup, especially if you're looking for more coverage or struggling with oily skin. You'll love it.
Made me look OLD!
I would not recommend this product for oily skin. Throughout the day it will settle into your fine lines and look extremely blotchy. At the end of a normal work day, I looked at my self in the mirror and was shocked at how much older I looked, it created laugh lines and crows feet where I don't have any yet. I can't believe I walked around like that all day.
I tried the product again with a primer underneath and then I set it with the Mineral Veil and the fine line settling stopped but the blotchiness still happened. I really wanted to like this product but I can't look like that all day.
I was somewhat sceptical of the Ready foundation after reading the reviews. I did take the advice to get a darker shade than normal. I usually wear fairly medium and I chose medium beige in the Ready foundation. I love it. Excellent long lasting coverage! Easy application! I've been using bare minerals for over 10 years. I didn't think anything could surpass it. Ready foundation does!
I'll admit, I was extremely skeptical about going back to a solid powder after using the matte foundation for the last five years. I was AMAZED at how well it covers and how easy it is to use. I am constantly on the run, so I love that I can throw this in my purse and touch up my face in between appointments. You do have to go one shade up to get the right match, but that's no problem for me! I will absolutely purchase this product again!
Good coverage but...
I was very excited to try this new formula, but was disappointed after doing so. The ready foundation has much more SPF than the original/matte formula, which causes the color to look a little different. I was shade matched twice, and still ended up exchanging it for my faithful matte powder version. The coverage was great, but it made my skin look clammy and the color was very off. I don't think it's a good formula for African American women. I'm still a loyal Bare Minerals beauty, but I'll just stick to the powder version from now on. FYI to the ladies who mentioned it was messy...it helps if you watch the video tutorial before purchasing. It's not a swirl, tap, buff application. It's a press and buff application. It's not messy at all.
Looked forward to trying this new product, but the color is off, it is way too chalky, and doesn't look good on. It emphasizes pores and disappears in no time. Wish I had kept the packaging on this one to return it, but I do NOT recommend it!
I have used the original foundation for about ten years. I didn't think anything could top the sheer, natural looking coverage of that formulation, but this did (I apply the READY foundation with the flawless face brush to get sheer coverage). Like the original foundation the READY formula doesn't feel like anything on my skin. I loved the glow that my original formula gave me but this is better. It is a much more natural look that works well with my oily skin. The original formula tended to leave me quite shiny/oily looking by midday. But with this I just look dewy. If you try it I do recommend getting color matched. Even using the guide on this site I would never have chosen the right shade. In the original formula I wear warm tan or tan in this formulation I wear warm dark. Not only is this several shades darker it is not one of the shades recommended on the color matching tool provided on this site for people who wear my shade in the original.
Instantly in Love
I did get color matched for this new foundation and found that I am a shade darker than I was with the matte foundation. My hairstylist said I have such an amazing complexion. She was shocked when I told her I have very bad roscea and I told her that I use this Ready foundation. She was shocked that I wear make-up at all! I am so grateful to bareminerals for coming up with this new formulation - I never looked so good with so little effort.
The Best Foundation Yet!
The coverage and look of this foundation, along with the precision face brush, is the finest I have ever used. It's easy to apply, does not accentuate my lines & creases and looks as good at the end of the day as when I applied it in the morning. I really do see a difference in my skin, as well. Very happy and highly recommend!
