READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
This was a let down for me...
I was excited to use this product after trying the original formula. I didn't realize that the shades didn't match from the original to the READY so the color wasn't even right. I didn't love the way that it sat on top of my skin and didn't blend as well as the original. Also, the formula made me break out. I wore it from almost 2 months hoping that my break outs were just a fluke (and I wanted to get my money's worth) but they were not. As soon as I went back to the powder my face was clear again.
\i went to the bareminerals boutique that I always go to and was talked into getting the Ready Foundation. Big mistake. the coverage is horrible. Since it's so expensive I will use it until it's gone but I am very disappointed. Definitely LOVE the original though. :(
I loved this product! I was having a hard time finding a foundation that feels light but gives you the perfect coverage. Unfortanutely, my skin had an allergic reaction to this product which made me very upset. Best coverage I have ever used!
I purchased my first Ready compact at an Ulta store. Unfortunately I dropped the compact and within a couple of days it broke into a million pieces. I chalked that up to user error. The 2nd compact was purchased through the BE site online. Unfortunately, it cracked & crumbled soon and was unusable and this time I DID NOT drop it- just crumbled on it's own. Because the coverage and color was great (I was matched at the store) I decided to take one more chance. If it cracks again- I am done. I will come back to the site and update the review if it does. Unfortunately the original shades don't work for me without combining 2 colors. that's too much work and too much of a mess. That's why I was glad to hear about the Ready compact. Love the product but not the inconvenience and loss of money and time.
Finally a "Fair" that is really for fair skin!
I'm a natural redhead, and therefore have very pale skin that gets red easily. The "Fair" in the original foundation was too dark for me. The "Fair" in the READY line seems perfectly designed for a pale complexion without much yellow -- and they have a shade with more yellow in it for those who need it.
I have combination skin, and this foundation doesn't cake or get too heavy or oily for me. One of the things I love about BareMinerals foundation is that it does not run at all even if I'm sweating buckets outside in 100+ degree weather -- I attended an outdoor funeral service in August in the South and it seemed to stay on better the more I sweated!
Love this foundation. Goes on silky and smooth and wears all day. Does not settle into fine lines and keeps your skin soft and velvety.
A must have for all ages! And there is no mess so it travels nicely
The worse foundation ever!
This is the worse foundation I had ever seen!! I am a supper bare minerals fan, I love their loose original foundation. I received this ready foundation as a sample. I am super disappointed with it!! It is very caky! It make my pore look super big and make my face super oily! If I can I will give it a zero star, this is such a heart breaking product!!!
I recently bought it because I needed full coverage, I have some acne scars and hyper pigmentation. Definitely, go get , shade match at the makeup counter because the shade is different from the original foundation. It is not messy like the original- loose powder which I love- I tend to get it all over the bathroom sink & counter. I would watch Leslie's video about the Ready Foundation, she gives helpful tips to avoid the cakey look. If you don't have the precision brush or something similar, I suggest you go it one. It's natural looking and I have gotten compliments from my coworkers.
Not for me!
I have used both the bare minerals matte and original foundation. This one is definitely more chalky. It is hard to get full coverage with this foundation and still have it look smooth. My favorite foundation is definitely the original.
Made my skin look great
