READY To Go Complexion Perfection Palette - null
Not as good as original foundation
Bought this kit. It is convenient that everything comes in a travel case. BUT, the brushes are no good and the makeup goes on way to heavy. I will be throwing this away.
It is ready to go
I purchased this product last December because I didn't want to drag my make-up box to Phoenix for two weeks. It packs well and is easy to use. I still use it if I don't have time to do my make-up before I go to work. I just throw it in my bag along with the eye shadow/lipstick/blush palette I purchased at the same time and go.
It does have a down side though. As several others have mentioned, there is no brush for the concealer. i added my own Maximum Coverage Concealer brush, tucking it in the elastic look between the mirror and the palette. There are two sort-of baby buki brushes included, but there is no way to clean them, particularly if you use the smaller brush for the bronzer and luminizer. I think it too big to carry in my purse so I don't use it for touch ups. It does full the bill for travel.
Travel and Much Much More
I originally bought the palette for a trip to Europe. I thought that it would be easier to pack and use in a small European hotel bathroom. I was right - it is perfect for travel.
What I hadn't counted on was the palette becoming my go to makeup during the day at school. I keep it in my teacher bag and use it for quick touch ups during the day. Now that it is summer, I don't wear makeup very often. I stick mostly with tinted foundation and a little mascara. When I find that I need to run out somewhere, there's the palette there waiting for me.
This has become my quick go to makeup. I love it! I am getting ready to order my second one.
Love the product, need to work on packaging
I want to give this 5 hearts SO badly. I have forever wanted a easy way to keep bareminerals with me and they have finally come out with this kit. But the packaging is ridiculous. It is pretty large considering the amount of makeup you get. Also, there is no separate brush for the concealer (fingers work, just not ideal).
To improve they should...
- make something that is refillable and then sell replacements so you don't have to repurchase the whole kit
- include at least one eye shadow and mini eyeliner/mascara (or a spot in the packaging to add one yourself)
I am going to keep this but I kind of wish I had just purchased the individual "ready" compacts and kept them in a makeup bag. This just doesn't seem like a great value to me and seems very wasteful. Still give it 3 hearts because I love the makeup.
All time fav
I love love love this. I would work on the packaging some to make it more efficient and economical. But cant beat the combo of make up. Just toss in a lip color and travel size mascara, the illuminator can be mixed and blended on the eyes too. Perfect on the go. For some reason I like the makeup in this better than the full size compacts of the exact same makeup, go figure. And while the brushes are small they are awesome and super soft!!!!!
Great kit! Best foundation ever!
I have tried a lot of brands out there: Mac, Sephora, Benefit, Smashbox, and Bare Minerals is my favorite. I tried going back to Mac because that's all they had at the nordstroms where I live, but returned the Mac foundation because it didn't compare to BM. This kit has ll you need, a little goes a long way, and this will last a long time I get compliments when I wear this foundation.
I like it
I just bought this yesterday and am excited to really use it. I am not a fan of the creamy concealer and there is no brush for that in the kit. There is no cover over the make up so any loose powder will get all over the case. I am usually fairly light but was matched with medium so I'm a bit worried. I also haven't used a tinted mineral veil or luminous face color. But from what I have tried, it works well. I recommend it for those who travel a lot and as a first kit.
PROS & CONS of ready complexion perfection palette
I bought this palette at a boutique and it was the first step of my total overhaul from my old makeup mashup to all-BE skincare & make-up.
It was recommended to me and I am glad I bought it. This was before BE offered a complexion perfection palette with the loose powder foundation and this was my first time trying the READY foundation. (If I could go back I would get the loose powder kit). This was all I had for make-up at one point - and besides eyeshadow and mascara it gave me everything I needed. *But actually you could use the luminizer as an eye shadow in a pinch.
IF YOU LIKE THE READY FOUNDATION do not hesitate to get this kit. It is great for on-the-go AND just as a part of your makeup routine. The mini brushes are very handy, but small, and when used correctly this palette has the potential to cover any flaws and give the look of beautiful even skin.
For me, the READY foundation doesn't compare to the powder foundation. Which is disappointing since I am so tired of the mess I leave behind when applying the powder - and I am always on the go, doing make-up in the car, a quick fix while out, or when I'm late at my desk. It may be because of the brush in this kit- it's very small. For the amount of coverage I wanted, with such a small brush, I found myself buffing and going back and forth between the palette and my face for quite awhile in order to get my whole face covered. I found that it left my skin looking cakey. Which BE has never done for me. It looked heavily applied and patchy - heavier in certain areas. Only from close up could you really notice this. And the only reason I even complain about it is because I hold BE to an extremely high standard since they give the best results of anything I've ever tried. Also the little clear plastic cover on the concealer broke off almost immediately. But luckily with READY there isn't much loose powder to mix with it and make a mess so it was never an issue. Overall, if you took a before and after picture of me after applying this palette I think the results are fabulous. I'm only pointing out the tiny annoyances so that you can better make a decision on if it's right for you - it's still great and gave good results and got 4 stars from me. Before you purchase this you should try the READY foundation though and make sure it's right for you. I also found that using the primer beforehand helped a lot with the issues of uneven coverage.
Even with all the BE products I've accumulated I still keep this in my purse. I use the concealer a lot, there isn't much of it but you don't need much. Before I apply my loose powder foundation, I use the ready foundation in little spots for better coverage of acne, dark circles, or other flaws. The warmth is always useful and same with the luminizer.
I'm glad I bought it. It does what it says it will do, but don't make the same mistake as me. For first time users - go to a boutique or ask a friend and try both types of foundations before you choose your complexion perfection palette!
Finally, a convenient way to carry Bare Minerals.
So far I like this palette. It is very convenient to travel with. My only con is that it is not refillable. I hope in the future this will be an available option.
I love this handy little kit!
After a several-year hiatus from using this brand, I bought the Customizable Get Started Kit after falling in love with the products at a boutique all over again. Shortly after that, I went back with my mother who was looking for something quick and easy (she doesn't usually wear makeup) and the sales rep suggested she try this little kit. She was so convinced, I ended up buying one too and I have to say it is so handy! I travel a lot and don't like to bring a bulging makeup bag that takes up a ton of space, especially if I'm only using a carry on. This little kit is the perfect solution. I wouldn't use it for my everyday makeup application all the time, the full sizes are more convenient, but when traveling for a week or so, or just to keep in your car for beauty emergencies, it is the best thing I've come across. The included brushes are tiny, but perfectly usable and of good quality. The case itself (which you can keep after you use all the product) even has a nifty little loop for mascara, lip gloss, or a liner pen. Furthermore, I was never one for bronzer and highlighter before (the less steps the better IMHO) but since I've gotten to play with them in this kit I've grown to love them and went on to buy the full sized, pressed bronzer. I do wish that you were able to buy a cheaper replacement pallet or individual pans instead of paying full price for the whole kit again when it's empty, but if you don't use it 24/7/365 it should last you quite a long time so that's not a particularly large issue.
I LOVE BARE MINERALS
Before bare minerals, I used MAC and had breakouts all the time. I even paid for microdermabrasion in hopes of reducing my acne breakouts but that did not work either. My mom always encouraged me to use bare minerals but I was skeptical because I felt it might not be enough coverage. Once I started using bare minerals my acne was gone. I still have a few occasional breakouts but nothing like before and I am so happy. I love this product and would recommend to anyone who is trying to reduce their acne.
This is the perfect every day, in a hurry, travel, touch up, in your purse, all around 'go to' that is a must for perfection personified. The READY collections are a must have.
Love it, but foundation dried out!
I have been using this palette for several months now as my every day makeup. It is so nice to be able to hold 5 components in one hand and apply with the other! So much faster than picking up 5 different containers. Like the other reviewers, I found that the touch up veil was used up the quickest. Would be so nice if we could refill components. I was very disappointed though in the ready foundation in this kit. It dried out very quickly (about 1 month after initial use). In order to get the foundation on my brush now, I've been scratching it with a Kleenex before trying to apply. I think this case lets too much air in. The foundation needed a cover like the concealer. Other than that, I really love this kit! Sadly I had to buy large sizes to restock. That's going to slow me down in the mornings...but the kit was also wonderful for traveling, so I'll probably buy another and engineer my own cover for the foundation.
I had to find something for a local film I'm in to look like I am not wearing make up. I was really nervous about that because I don't have the most flawless coloring. I saw this and had a consultation in the store. She didn't pressure me, but just showed me how to make it look natural. I loved it in the store and got it. The next day I used it and was leery because of the different lighting trick, but I just followed the directions that came with the kit and I feel like my skin looks like its glowing. I've never felt like my skin has looked this beautiful with putting barely any on. I also used the silky primer that I've been using for ages. I now feel like one of those girls that you can't help but stare at there flawless complection. I'm a cheap college student so I am super picky on what I spend my money on. You will not be disappointed.
Very good product. Acne went away after I switched
I stopped using drugstore foundation products because my acne got pretty bad this year. I went to a Bare Minerals store and asked for help finding a new foundation for me. I ended up purchasing this because it included everything along with the foundation and I thought it was an excellent deal. The foundation is pretty sheer and I wish it was a tad better at giving full coverage. My only real issue with this product is that the concealer doesn't match my skin tone, while the foundation does. The concealer is a bit yellow toned. But with a little extra work I can get really good coverage. The best part is that after a couple months of using this, almost all of my acne has cleared up! I love it and will most likely buy it again.
Great palette for on the go!
The colors in the palette work great with my skin tone (I have the palette in medium). This palette is great to carry in your purse for touch ups throughout the day or when traveling. I can pack this palette (along with Perfect Ten, mascara, and a lip gloss) and I'm ready for my trip. I would like to see a permanent plastic cover included so the inside of the case and mirror do not get dirty. Otherwise, this palette is perfect!!
Awesome Concept and Great Quality
I love everything about this kit. The products are all wonderful, and it is a great way to try everything together to get the best possible flawless look. The case is cute and allows for plenty of product. Also love that the concealer has a plastic lid to keep it from drying out. I was happy I got matched at the store because I am Medium Beige in the loose powder and Light in the pressed compact. The mini brushes are surprisingly soft too. I also use a sponge for application. I plan to buy another for my summer color too!
Awesome for traveling
This is so great to throw in a carry on bag or overnight bag rather than taking several products. I throw in the BE perfect 10 palette too and I have everything.
Just be sure to get shade matched. I have very fair skin and wear medium in the ready foundation.
Face palette in medium beige
I have this kit in medium. It has medium beige makeup and a medium concealer number 1. The concealer has more yellow undertones than I would opt for (I normally wear medium 2). The colored veil makes my skin really dry so I don't use it. The luminizer was a first to me and I love it. I'm also playing around with the bronzer. The concealer is not that big of a deal I just use it under my foundation instead of after. There is a generous sizing in all of these products btw. There is a mirror in the kit and it does get a little dirty because of all the powders, I would recommend a plastic top next time that stays permanently in the case. There are multi uses for the luminizer and the bronzer. You can use them both as eye shadows and to contour your face. My favorite little part was the little strap to hold a mascara or a lipgloss. A bonus is cute little brushes that are comparable to larger brushes.
Not in all shades!
The fact that this does not come in the same shade that ready foundation comes in is depressing. I am fairly medium and was forced to get the fairly light which makes my skin look to orange looking since I have more of a pink undertone and not a yellow one. I would love it more if they came out with one that was in my shade as I'm sure others would love too and this would be easier if they came as a refillable option because they can make the light-dark choice for the bronzer, veil, luminizer, and concealer and allow you to choose the foundation yourself. I would give it a 5 star if they had both of those options but they don't. I do like that it is all in one and can be taken while traveling which is why I got it.
Small but efficient
I agree with the other's regarding replacement packs and a neutral colored case. I wish BE would add a field to the guideline: WHAT COLOR DID YOU CHOOSE! It's a big help when the customer's volunteer the product color they chose. I would like to know if the person who's age, skin type and colors match mine were happy with the color palette they selected. Sometimes I get colors too light or too dark. Sales people are always trying to change my colors for each season. I'm too old to sit in the sun and get a tan but it's difficult to convince the sales reps at Meadows Mall Dillard's that I know what color I want to buy. I was one of your first customers and will remain loyal to this brand for ever. Other than that I think BE carries the absolute best mineral makeup available to consumers.
i love this set! not only is the ready foundation travel friendly but they've but the ready foundation & everything you need for a complete face minus blush & eyeshadow in a travel set! making this refillable would've gotten the 5th star. i don't to repurchase the entire set or carry full sized compacts when product gets low.
also, i think it should've been 1 big, versatile brush instead of two tiny ones.
All of the colors matched my skin tone perfect! I would recommend getting color matched (as I have done previously). I have fair skin and actually matched the Medium Tan (I have quite a bit of redness in my face) and this color tones it down tremendously! I would highly recommend this set to anyone. As others have stated, I would love it more if it were refillable. Quick, easy to apply, and long-lasting. I love that it is all packaged together and I don't have 5 bottles of makeup to keep up with (taking lids off and on) plus the 2 brushes. It also made my makeup look as if it were air-brushed on and my wrinkles around my eyes were less noticeable.
Now there is something that is no mess and fits in a hand bag, But refillable would be better and also a blush added!!!
I like it
I really like it. I only wish they made the foundation and concealer bigger. I bought the golden dark color and the concealer is lighter than what I was matched for at the store. Other than that I really do like it.
Not practical for everyday use
This is a great product for a gym bag or travel but not practical for everyday use. Love all the components but the main foundation powder is used up much quicker than the others. They need to make this in a package that you can refill individual components of it at different times. Great though for travel I love the convenience but for everyday I'm sticking to buying separate ones.
If you're anything like me, you're rushing in the morning to get ready. I always thought Bare Minerals was pretty quick to get on in the morning, but this makes it so much quicker!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the new pressed minerals, so much better than the loose version!
I love the creaminess of the concealer and how easy it goes on and blends. The coverage is excellent!
The new brushes feel great on my skin! Very soft!
This palette is super convenient and I recommend it to everyone.
The only con is that the compartments are not refillable, but still a great product!
Great for travel!
I purchased this for a trip so I could avoid the issues of loose powder. I absolutely love it and sometimes when I'm too lazy to try to guess how much mineral is on my brush, I do this for a quick fix. The creamy concealer is great too, but I still love my bisque. Totally worth it for travelers. :-)
Would buy if....
Nearly every reviewer didn't mentioned the need for replacement products for each item. With Bareescentuals resources, it shouldn't be a huge expense to them to offer this. I would buy one if not for that omission. I don't travel that much, but it's a pain to have to pack so many products and make sure they are in an upright position so as not to have tons of powder in each container when I open them filled to the top of the lids. I ALWAYS put my case in my carry on just for that reason. Until they make the effort to fulfill this obvious needd, I don't think I'll invest in one of these pallets.Such a great concept, though. But even though this is a relatively convenient container, I still have to carry all my skincare products and eye make up separately . Such a pain!
Perfect for travel
This is Perfect for the weekend travel plans and even for longer trips. I love my "ready" products. Now if BE would do "refillable" for the compacts it would be even more perfect. I like "saving our earth"!
