READY To Go Complexion Perfection Palette - null
This is well thought-out - ok, mostly well thought-out
I must admit, I am lucky that I am a Fairly Light gal. I use FL in the regular minerals AND the Ready Foundation. I really never heard of going darker with the Ready. The same colors work fine for both on my face.
I got this kit today and made up my face using ONLY the kit and one extra brush (flawless face and eyeshadow combination) which fits in the elastic band at the top of the kit. Aside from mascara and lipstick, this kit has everything I need for a fabulous face! I found that the bronzer worked for blush and eyeshadow and the luminizer makes a great brow highlighter. I never used the concealer before and found it to be perfectly pigmented for great coverage of veins on my nose, blemishes, etc. All in all, this kit will be what I need for a trip or even to carry in my purse.
The only "con" I can see in this kit is that the brushes are small and don't cover as quickly as the fullsize ones. However, carrying the double-sided brush in the elastic band solves that problem, as well as providing me with a ready eyeshadow brush. I'm sold!
...So it only comes in 8 shades...:(
So I saw this and thought it would be perfect, yay travel sized! I don't wear makeup everyday so I don't go through a ton of it. A kit this size would last me a while. However I can't get it, I am the lightest foundation color and this product doesn't even come close to having a matching color. BareMinerals why did you leave out so many skin tones?
I wish it were more customizable
I don't use bronzer or luminizer and I use a different shade of touch up veil, so I wish it were possible to customize the options. Otherwise, $49 is a little steep for things I would never use. It would also be nice to purchase individual refills.
Love this palette!
I absolutely love this palette. Perfect for travel. The luminizer is fabulous, it gives a beautiful glow. .. Wish it were refillable. I use it with my precision brush.
Where's the Refill???
I hope you're listening!!! Replacement options would be fantastic. I love this product but will most likely not purchase again unless some other options become available.
Great Deal & Products!
I was so lucky to get this at a sale price of $39 with free S&H since I purchased over $50 especially since others still have it at $49 + S&H. My complexion is fair and I use Fairly Light in the regular BM foundation, yet in the BM Ready Foundation I use the Medium Beige. I thought the other products might be too dark but I used them last night & they looked just fine. I absolutely love the fact this Palette has all the BASIC products you need in one & can throw it in your purse with a little blush and eye shadow. I want to mention that there is a little loop, that you can't see in the picture, for your lipstick or lip gloss. Thanks again Leslie! Love your products & fast service! Happy Holidays!
Sensing a pattern .........Refillable yet?
I am considering adding this set for travels, but I have to agree with more than half of the comments - it needs to have a refill option. I think I'll wait.
Great way to start!
This Palette was my introduction to Bare Minerals. I was hesitant to purchase the individual components in their full sizes as it becomes pricey to purchase them all. This was a cost effective way to see if I was going to like Bare Minerals. I found out I LOVE Bare Minerals This palette is now my travel make up kit. It makes taking my make up on overnight business trips, as well as long vacations, so simple. I do agree with a previous review that stated it would be nice to be able to buy the individual components for this kit as some run out faster than others. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to try this line of make up but doesn't want to spend too much. It's worth every penny!
Convient, but Wasteful
I bought this palette for vacation and absolutely LOVE it! It is so convenient for travel and at home. So much quicker to get ready when everything is in one spot. However, I am really disappointed that you can't buy replacements. Some of the products are going faster than others and I don't want to keep having to buy the whole pallet and leaving product unused. PLEASE start selling refills soon!!!
I stopped in to the Cherry Creek (Denver) bareMinerals store ,on the way to the airport (I live in a small ski resort, no malls within 3 hours) because my ready foundation wasn't covering my rosacea well, and was blotchy. Lianna was a great help. First of all she did the color match, and I was using a shade too light. Then she explained the blotchiness was from my dry flaky skin. I purchased some Mineralixers to add to my Purely Nourishing Moisturizer. I also purchased the Exfoliating Cleanser. What a difference these products have made. I purchased the Perfection Palette in the Medium Beige, and I LOVE IT. The palette was so easy to travel with, and everything in it is great. I love the concealer, I use it as an eyeshadow primer, the highlighter is my eyeshadow, the Mineral Veil is great in the medium shade...I could go on and on-and I have! The best part is that it looks so natural , no blotchiness and an even skin tone, people say I look great - not my make up looks great ! Thank you for your well trained staff .
A MUST HAVE!
I bought this so I could try the Ready Foundation and concealer and loved it. I used it for my trip because I hate having to take my large containers of mineral veil and matte foundation and it worked out great. I could throw it in my suitcase but also carry in my purse for a quick touch up during the day. I loved this so much I had to buy 2 more! I love this and suggest you buy one for your next travel or carry for touch ups during the day.
I originally bought this as something to bring with me for touchups. However the colors and application is soooooo easy that I use it in place of my regular loose products. My next purchase will be the full sizes of this travel kit. It would be wonderful if this kit was refillable as one is bound to use more of one product than another.
I absolutely love this!!!!!
I have been a Bare Minerals loose foundation girl since the very first infomercials. This palette was my first introduction to the Ready foundation. I travel a lot and this was the PERFECT SOLUTION. I love everything in the kit. I only add my mascara which I can place in the elastic strap in the kit. PLEASE make this refillable!!!!! It has been a lifesaver.
I bought this to take on my motorcycle trips. since I'm limited on space this was the best thing I could buy all my make up in this small compact that don't take up a lot of room. the only down fall is they don't sell the little square separate so I have to buy another kit for my next year trips. but I love this product.
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!!
