READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Love it so much I'm ditching the loose powder!
I've been a fan of the loose powder for a while, and have used the original and matte products. Matte didn't work as well for me so I stuck with the original. It's been good generally, but sometimes my sensitive skin just feels itchy in it and the staying power hasn't been as good as I'd have liked -- especially on my nose. Still, I've liked it better than liquid foundations though I have also found that using a tinted moisturizer first has resulted in a better finished look for me. Recently I visited a boutique to take advantage of the larger sized foundation that's available only a few times a year but also bought a compact of the Ready foundation because I wanted one I could keep in my purse for touch-ups. They told me at the store that the two foundations are very different, and that a different type of brush was best for application, and that was all correct (I bought the little travel brush with the cover -- it's awesome). I like the Ready foundation MUCH more than the loose powder foundation now! Different brush, different type of application, goes on much faster and easier, the coverage is better and it feels fabulous. Seriously -- I'm not one for jumping around and trying different products. If I find something I like or even something that works I will often stick with it because I hate wasting money on products I end up not using because it doesn't look good on me or doesn't live up to the hype.
This stuff lives up to the hype. I have normal to dry fair sensitive skin, am 40 years old and have some issues with uneven skin tone and this foundation so far has been great for me! Definitely worth a try.
Ready SPT 20 Foundation
I hve been a Bare Minerals foundation user for along time. I thought I would try the Ready SPF and am sure glad I did. Great Coverage. Stays put alot longer.
It does the job
I have a Golden Dark skin tone. Yes, this does show up a little lighter than it usually does, but if you blend it in well, it's not too bad. Less is more so you don't want to add 50 layers because you feel it didn't buff away what you wanted it to. I love how you can tap the brush in and buff into the skin versus the time wasting swirl tap and buff application. I still like the swirl tap and buff application, but it's so much better knowing you can tap a little and buff getting the same results. Another tip....The Precision Face Brush is SO nice...and the retractable Precision Face Brush. Both are really soft and not like the Goat Hair brushes that are soft, but are straw-like and are more receptive to shedding. The Precision Brushes are made of synthetic fibers (Taklon I think). It's soft, non-irritating and makes makeup application easier, more enjoyable and my makeup even looks better because I've used BE brushes that have the synthetic hairs on them. You can even tell in the pictures if they're synthetic or the original brushes that seem to shed.
Decided to break down and purchase the kit in a store, so I was color matched. Got home and couldn't wait to try it. This is my third day of wearing it and I have only gotten complements...
Love the new compact foundation
I originally had the loose powder foundation from bareMinerals but recently went to a store for a refill and was informed of the new compact foundation. It is the same formula but in a solid form. I absolutely fell in love with this product! It cut my makeup time in half and provides flawless coverage. I've received many compliments on my skin and I believe this product is even better than the lose powder foundation. I have problem skin and find that the solid foundation covers better and looks great. I'd really recommend this product to anyone looking for a new foundation!
The energizer bunny of foundation!
I have been using the original formula for awhile now. I was extremely hesitant to change up my routine. I just couldn't resist giving it a shot last time I was due for a new foundation. I love it! Compared to the loose powder, I get an extra 30 days (at least) out of it too! It did look a little different than my original powder, I am glad that I tried it in the store first to buy the right shade.
I never thought I would give up my Bare Escentuals loose powder, but I love this new foundation. It is hard to get the correct color, I recommend buying it in a store for the first time so a professional can try it on you. Its a little messy, when you get it on the brush, but the cover is great, I am sticking with it
Best ever foundation.
I have used Bareminerals products as long as I can remember, well over 10 years. I have always been complimented on my complexion. I love the products. But this product tops them all. I love the soft smoothness of this foundation. The brush makes the whole makeup process even better. Since I have been getting older, the loose mineral product seems to accent the lines in my face. I do not get this effect from this new foundation. I am thrilled!
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.
