READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
I am a huge fan of Bareminerals. I say this with great sadness. I did not like this product at all. The shade didn't the original. It felt super heavy. My pores looked much larger. This product did not blend very well.
I am still an avid fan of a lot of their products...except this one :)
Love this product! Has much better coverage that the original powder. I am 60, and it seems to have more moisture and cover flawlessly. Definitely a keeper.
I purchased my first ever B.M. starter set yesterday and I'm absolutely happy about my decision to buy. This is the first time buying makeup where I can actually get the makeup to match my skin perfectly. I got medium Tan.
I chose a medium shade of foundation. I absolutely love the product and how it makes my skin look, however; the medium shade was much too light. Normally medium is the correct shade, but with this foundation, I needed a darker shade.
Love, Love, Love This!
I have been a BE customer for years. I started out with the original foundation, then moved to the matte foundation, and most recently moved to the Ready foundation. All three foundations have their benefits and I can see where people would like one more than the others. My one is the Ready foundation. After reading reviews, I went to my local boutique to be color matched, and I also purchased the precision brush at the same time as the Ready foundation. I love the ease of use and the great coverage I get from this foundation. I use a moisturizer, primer and Redness Remedy before the foundation. I have fairly oily skin -- especially for my age -- and I find touch-ups are not frequently required.
Love it! Would not want to live without it!
I bought my first Ready Foundation back in April. I just now had to buy another one and that's only because I dropped my compact and lost the remaining foundation. I didn't realize just how much I loved Ready Foundation until I didn't have it anymore. I went back to the original I still have in my stock. While I still like the Original; it just doesn't give me the coverage that RF does. I can't wait to use Ready Foundation tomorrow morning. Oh, by the way, I wear Golden Fair in Original and Fairly Light in Ready. It definitely helps to go into a boutique to get matched.
I would also like to add that BE has the best customer service! I called in with what I thought was a minor question. The woman that took my call was so helpful and informative. Thank you for not only making a great product, but for great customer service too!
I was very hesitant about using this product, i rear through all of the reviews went to the store and got shade matched ( it is true what they say you are usually a shade darker in this then in the original foundation). I absolutely fell in love with this makeup, it last we so much longer throughout the day and my skin looks flawless. Partnered with the touch up veil and the blush I have never looked better! Worth the money!
Love it but torn about the shade.
Today will be my third order of this BE solid foundation. As long as I use the Primer first I love the way it makes my skin look and feel. But, I can't quite match my face to the shade of my body. The Golden Medium 270 is a tad too light and the Golden Tan 330 is a tad too dark. The Medium Tan would also be too dark bc it is for the same level of darkness but has different undertones. I am definitely more of a "yellow bone" so rosey tones I don't think will work. Also, I have recently begun having acne, I am 26 but I am now using Pro Active and am clearing up but still need coverage. I don't know if I just am not using the right brush bc from other reviews I have read today I guess that different brushes will give you different amounts of coverage but, I can still see some dark marks a little on my face when using this. I am going to try the precision brush. Okay that is all I have to say. I wish that there was a shade between golden medium and golden tan. I have been mixing them but I can't afford to buy 2 a month. I am just going to go lighter and add bronzer and that. Other than that I love this make up. I look so clean, refreshed, glowing and special. Since using this and Laura Gellar make up I have gotten so many compliments. I use Laura Gellar blush, eye shadown, highlighter and sometimes I will add her mineral foundation onto my Golden med. BE to make up for the lightness. Okay thanks. Good luk.
Didn't like it - at FIRST
...but I know NOW that I was applying it incorrectly, whiiiiiiiiich is sort of a fault of the company IMO.
I had previously thought, no I don't need a precision face brush I have one JUST like it at home plus flawless face brush, full flawless face brush, AND handy buki brushes - and I refused to buy another brush. That was my mistake. With application from any of those other brushes the foundation is applied "splotchy" and looks bad.
When the girl at the boutique applied the foundation with the precision brush it was seriously a different finish all together. I was actually astonished at the difference the brush makes & I caved and bought ANOTHER bm brush.
But now I am happy. One "press" in to the foundation and I can cover 1/3 of my face with the precision brush.
So while I do like the ease of application, if you don't want to buy the precision brush then don't buy this foundation b/c you won't like the finish.
Wanted to love it...
I really wanted to love this product due to the huge anti-aging and moisture benefits but, it just isn't made for oily skin. The other other issue with this product is that the shade selection is too small, it would be so helpful if the shade selection matched the loose powder foundation selection, the two shades closest to my shade were way off. I'm sticking with my B.E. matte loose powder foundation, which I love.
