READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
A huge disappointment
I was very excited to try Bare Minerals powder foundation for the first time and the saleswoman at a boutique talked me into this. I have never had such a negative experience with a makeup product in my life. My skin became so dry it was cracking and painful, even with the Bare Minerals primer and moisturizer. It sat on top of my skin in a cakey and heavy way that was very uncomfortable. The woman in the store was just trying to sell me a product instead of work with my skin type. I don't think I will be purchasing from Bare Minerals in the future.
Powder breaks apart
Was happy with the product until it totally broke apart while sitting in my make up bag (WITHOUT being dropped/bumped). The powder is all over the place and became super messy. It just happened overnight, for no apparent reason. Very disappointed.
This foundation suits my combo/oily skin very well. It looks so natural and the ingredients are so much better than other foundations. I apply this w/ the BM angled flat top kabuki brush (precision face brush I think?) and tap it on in circular motions. No problems whatsoever and I've used it more than a year now. Only suggestion is keeping the shade names the same as the original foundation. Try this!
Absolutely love the Ready Foundation. The coverage is great. I've received many compliments on my make-up since switching back to Bare Escentuals.
I was tired of the "old" screw top foundation going every where when I opened it to use. I love this product. It is much easier, still the same silky smooth foundation. But much cleaner and I find I use the same amount! The foundation goes on normally and I love it!!
Loved the powder as I do with all that I try from BE - but - about half way through the product - the cake started breaking away from the compact - so I have ended up with pieces that I have to crush by hand to use - may as well get the regular powder!
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.
