Rated 5 out of 5 by jlw021 Discontinued?
I love this foundation for my everyday wear. I can't find it anywhere...its "out of stock" at BE, Sephora, Ulta. I am going to be very disappointed if this was discontinued for the new barePRO foundation, which DOES NOT have an spf. Shouldn't everything have an spf these days?!
I have been using this since it came out, but this may force me to change brands if it is no longer available.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer MY FAVORITE BM GOUNDATION!!! <3
This is the best foundation I've ever had! Goes on beautifully, lasts all day, doesn't look like I'm wearing foundation, great coverage. I wish they didn't have to discontinue!!! :,( I've tried the new barepro foundation but for me it doesn't beat the ready foundation at all, so disappointed!!! :,( Will this be available in the last chance section or something so I can stock up before its gone forever?????? :,(
Rated 2 out of 5 by crhl95 Disappointing Product
I was hoping to find a nice compact foundation and change up my makeup routine after being a BareMinerals fan for about two years now. This is not a good product for my skin type. I'm pretty sure it makes me break out, and none of the shades match my skin tone. The compact also cracked within a week of purchase. I love your products but this one was disappointing.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Joyous505 DO NOT DISCONTINUE THIS PRODUCT
I've started using the new compact foundation and it does not compare to this. I have cystic acne which has left red scars on my face. This is the only foundation that covers it without looking cakey or gets darker as more is applied as I touch up during the day.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jen123 Love it but can no longer find my shade.
I've been using this for at least a year now and I love it. Unfortunately, I cannot find it in my shade anymore.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ashes89 Outstanding, if it was available...
The best foundation I've ever used. It goes on flawless, with or without the bare minerals brush. Now seriously Bare Minerals, restock your foundation stores so I can give you my money already!
Rated 3 out of 5 by asp1 Great makeup but compact broke twice!
I love the foundation compact. Great light but effective long lasting coverage. I have purchased it twice. But both times, as time went on and about 60% of the makeup was gone, the remaining powder in the compact cracked and I had a lot of little pieces left. You basically have to throw it out after that because every time you open it you get the dust and powder everywhere. The item is well priced for great quality but this is the 2nd time this happened to me so I basically paid for about half of what I was able to use - so then it becomes very expensive when you think about what you pay for vs. what you can use! I know I could buy a powder jar and sifter so I could dump the remaining pieces into it and keep using the makeup - but really, this shouldn't be happening to begin with.
Rated 5 out of 5 by pjreeder Love this product but it's been out of stock in my shade forever
Have been using this product for several months now and can't say enough good about it. However, I've been trying to order more for several weeks now and it's always out of stock. Hope this doesn't mean they aren't making ti anymore!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Redness, Rosacea, Sensitive....Look No Further!
I used the original foundation about 10 years ago in my 40's. Skin was in good shape. Fast forward to 50's, menopause, and now ultra sensitive skin prone to redness and rosacea flare ups with occasional yeast infections. I have foundation from almost every line...liquid with chemical sunscreens that my skin cannot handle. Decided why not go back to Bare Minerals? I found this foundation and gave it a try. It's been the best thing. Hardly need concealer, a lot of the redness and bumps have disappeared. The precision brush is an absolute must with application! I also use Blemish Therapy on the bumps. I have stocked up on both products in case they are discontinued!
Rated 3 out of 5 by yadayada eh....
very vibrant and glowing. but the foundation builds a film over the top of it, and it seems i cant get enough of it on my brush.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PamP LOVE IT
This product is amazing. By mistake I found out you don't have to use concealer. One day before I left for work, I realized I had too much concealer and makeup under my eyes and it looked very caked up. At the last minute I used a face wipe and removed everything on my face except my eye makeup. I took a chance and used the foundation under my eyes and realized I didn't need any concealer. I was so excited. I thought I had ruined my look, but I really enhanced it by taking off the concealer. Now I use this amazing product without concealer and I'm so excited. Preparation time is cut in half. I've tried other brands of makeup but wasn't happy with them. By far, Bare Minerals is the best ever! The coverage is phenomenal and last all day. I am very happy with this.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kimba2 Most exciting find in years!
For the past several years I have liked (but not loved) my choices in liquid and loose (mineral) powder foundations...and I had never found a pressed powder I liked even a little bit. So it came as a happy surprise that Bare Minerals created the most perfect foundation I have ever used in a pressed mineral powder form. READY foundation goes on smoothly and provides a flawless finish with a minimum of product. My skin looks young again - bright, dewy, and even-toned. The shade match is perfection - it matches my light medium "natural" color, while blending in the darker, sun-damaged spots. Application is a breeze with the angled brush. I can't say enough about this wonderful new foundation!

If you are unsure at all about the loose mineral makeup - you need to give this a try! I love this compact version of Bare Minerals! Get the Precision Face brush - it works wonderfully with this foundation. It melts into your skin and gives great coverage, but feels like nothing! Highly recommend!
Rated 5 out of 5 by courtneybeth Bare Minerals, I can't quit you!
I used Bare Minerals Original Foundation for a year and when I ran out I went back to my "old faithful" (Clinique). I immediately started breaking out and my skin looked so shiny/oily by lunch time. I ordered the BM Ready Foundation with the Precision brush and the Ready Translucent powder with the Soft Focus brush. My skin literally started looking better after the first day I wore it! I will never switch away from Bare Minerals again! Lesson learned! I prefer the Ready foundation over the Original for the convenience of having a compact and I MUCH rather prefer the Precision brush over the Flawless brush I had with the Original. I wore Medium Beige in the Original and still wear it with Ready. I highly recommend this product, you won't regret it. My skin has never looked better!
Rated 5 out of 5 by NeysaTT The reason I returned to Bare Minerals
This is my absolutely most favorite product of Bare Minerals. The coverage is excellent. It's light. I can where it all day. I can sweat in it. I get compliments all the time. I don't break out from using it. In fact I had to discontinue using most foundations because they didn't where well over time and would make me break out. Please, please, please do not discontinue this product. I love it so, so, so much.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dyana Great choice
I have used this for a few years. I love the coverage for slight imperfections and it lasts a long time.
Rated 1 out of 5 by KylieJo not the best
While I do love bareminerals in general, this foundation didn't work for me. I have very oily & dry skin. After a few hours, the foundation leaves a white-ish residue around my mouth and cheeks. It almost looks like I have really dry skin when it's just the foundation. Also, it settles into the lines on my forehead.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bfly Best mineral foundation pressed form...
I have used this since it was first sold.. I kept hoping that BM would make the minerals in a pressed form... Love love love it... IT does everything it claims, long lasting full coverage, good for you, creamy feeling, and pore covering. I did have to go a shade darker than what I wear in the loose minerals. Find your shade and you will love it too !! Thx..
Rated 2 out of 5 by onejett Not The Best.
It doesn't work very well with dehydrated or dry skin. It also doesn't work very well with my moisturizer. After applying, I had the "cakey" problem. I prefer the bareskin and original foundation.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nash Wonderful
I discovered this powder almost a year ago when I went to Sephora with the intention of buying a fundation from their own line. My skin is kind of pale and it was specially difficult for me to get a good light fundation that could match perfectly to my skinshade but, when the girl from the store told me about this foundation, I saw the result in my skin and I fell in love inmediately! It feels like if you were not wearing nothing at all, the result is amazing, very natural and it's perfect for everyday use... but it's important to find the color that matches your skin and this is another thing I really liked from this brand: they have a great variety of shades for their products so you only have to ask the proffesional of the store to find the right one for you.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kattmama If you are looking for weightless, and flawless finish - here's your product!
I love this product! I tried to use bare essentials in the early 2000's, and I bought multiple shades and tried to mix them numerous times to get the right shade and coverage and never found it. I was disappointed.
I tried this and never looked back! I was in a Sephora and couldn't believe the number of shades! I had one of their consultants take one look at my skin, pulled the shade and it matched! I bought the precision brush too. I just couldn't be happier and it's so NOT time consuming! (I'm flashing back to liquid foundation and heavy powders! The time it took to apply it just right and match the colors, blah, blah, blah! LOL) This is easy peasy and beautiful !
Rated 4 out of 5 by jennycowley Second times a charm!
I was skeptical to try this again. My first experience was not good. But after getting shade matched, correctly, I'm loving this foundation! I have this in shade golden tan and I usually wear golden medium. The golden tan is a perfect match! It looked a little too dark, but once blended in, it is perfect! Plus my skin looks so smooth! I only gave it four stars because it doesn't seem to stay on as long as the original or matte in my t-zone, but it's not like its gone in a couple hours either. Over all, this product has become a quick favorite and I'm so glad I gave it another try. Definitely get shade matched if you didn't have a good first impression.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Buddyski Great product but can't get a color match!
I love the simplicity of this product - just a few swipes and I'm done! I've been in the boutique at least three times to get color matched and sadly, I just am not happy with any color! I don't have this problem with any other BM foundation. The first time I bought Medium Tan (gosh, don't know what they call it now - so confusing with all the letters/numbers they assign to the products) and it matched fine. The next time I bought it, the color was too dark. I've tried Med Beige (too light) and Golden Beige (too yellow). Frustrating because the lighting in the store is so dim (goodness, you REALLY need to fix that in the Greenville, SC location!) and when you get home it's all UGH. Did you change the color formulations? All I know is I'd love to use it, but I can't. It would be so helpful if you keep the color names the same over the different foundation lines too!

I don't know what i would do without this product! Amazing coverage and looks natural and not like its caked on. I would highly recommend this. I found my perfect shade when i visited the store, so thankful!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ktown Very happy with this product
This is the third Bare Minerals foundation formulation that I have tried. I started with the original powder, which I liked, but it can be messy and it's bulky to travel with. I then tried the liquid which I didn't like quite so well. Even though I'm middle-aged, I still have an oily T-zone and just felt like the liquid melted off me. READY is just right.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Guinnevere Nice Foundation
I really like this foundation. It goes on smoothly and stays on all day without the need for touch ups. The only thing I don't like is that after using this product for a while it begins to get a shiny, hardened formation at the top and it makes it very hard to get product on the brush. I have to scrape the hardened portions out of the product in order to continue using the compact but I lose a lot of product that way and that is rather disappointing. I am now just starting my third compact and will see if this happens again. If it does I may want to consider another type of Bare Minerals foundation.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Really good
This foundation is so nice. I think it's way easier to apply than the loose powders. It doesn't take long to get the coverage that I need, just a few swipes and I'm done. You don't even really need the precision face brush for this, I wanted to order a new brush and when I was looking into ordering that one they were out of stock so, being impatient, I ordered the new beautiful finish brush and it works great with it. Only reason that I'm giving this a 4 rating is because you have to use a primer or setting powder or both to make it last all day. Without those I can get maybe 5-6 hours without a touch up.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KaraLandry Very, very happy!!
I actually am surprised that I really like this product. I tried it in the past with no success. I have retried it now using a new skin care line, Clinique, under it. I've been using it for 4 days now and I cannot believe how easily it covers my skin and redness that I have. I use the brush that goes with it, I forget what its called but its angled. I also use the ready touch up veil in medium under it and over it in the morning.
Before using this I used the bareMinerals original foundation for years. However, that really only is an 8 hour wear, and it took me much longer to get it to cover what I needed it too.
This has actually made getting ready in the morning much faster! And my skin looks a lot smoother and much more natural!
Also, with this and the touch up veil (no primer) I do not have to touch up during the day, which has not happened in like 10 years!
I use this in R210, medium. The color matches great! Previously I had to mix original colors light and fairly medium, so I never knew what I was going to get when applying.
This foundation with the touch up veil in ready has turned into my HG!
Rated 5 out of 5 by JodyLuvsBareMinerals WOW!!!
I cannot believe how good my skin looks with this fantastic compact powder foundation! I am 61 years old and have a dryer skin and I love a medium to full coverage so I use the precision face brush with it. My skin just glows with this make up and it doesn't seem to settle into my fine lines. I love that it has an SPF 20 in it as well. Take note that you will have to go for a darker shade because I have a light to medium complexion with pink undertones and the best color for me is (R310) for medium to tan skin. Don't be afraid to go darker because this make up is so easy to blend and is seamless!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer AMAZING!!
I just happend to walk by the bare minerals section at the mall and tried it instantly fell in love!! I've been trying it out for about 4 weeks now. Amazing coverage, light on the face, it's wonderful for oily skin it lasts me all day. So far it's the best foundation I have used!!
