READY Blush - null
Not My Favorite
The blush seems really thick and doesn't blend well into my skin. I thought it would be more like a compressed powder blush, and its really more like a cream blush (that may have been my fault for not reading about the product). I love BE and their products. Some people may love this blush, but i think i'll stick to the loose powder blushes from now on.
The Natural High
This color is absolutely amazing. I love the way it goes on and you can pick the intensity lighter or darker. I hope that this is a color that keep because it looks great.
After an hour or two the place where I applied this blush made my face feel hot, swollen on just one part where I applied it. I was also hoping for more of a rosey "just came out of snow" look instead it seemed to bring out too much of my acne.
Perfect color and a little goes a long way
I used the loose blush in the past from BM but found it messy. The solid blush is perfect and I have had my compact over a year and it hardly has a dent in it after wearing it everyday. I have naturally pink cheeks and this adds the perfect amount of color to my skin. Love the consistency, color, and packaging.
A Happy Color
I like using this color on bright and sunny days. It makes me feel cheery! The color lasts all day and it seems to be pretty pigmented. I have a couple of colors from BM and I'm happy with all of them.
If you like mineral makeup then you are going to fall in love with bareMinerals Ready Blush. Created using all natural ingredients, this beautiful pressed powder blush comes in a lightweight compact along with a small travel blush brush (ideal for touch-ups). bareMinerals Ready Blush is long lasting, its smooth formula glides over skin with ease offering buildable coverage meaning you can control the colour intensity to your personal liking. Available in Australia in 10 shades, all so pretty and hard to choose between, bareMinerals Ready Blush shades compliment various skin tones, it is quite fitting to declare you are spoilt for choice. I have been wearing 'The Natural High', a peachy-coral tone with a pearlescent sheen that lights up skin and creates a healthier looking version of my skin. bareMinerals Ready Blush contains mica for pearlescent shine, silica, the brand's trademarked SeaNutritive Mineral Complex as well as cold-pressed camellia oil for hydration. I can easily achieve eight hours from this reliable blush and am truly impressed that it lives up to its 8-hour claim. bareMinerals Ready Blush is suitable for all skin types and does not irritate in the slightest. Will I chance this product in the future? Absolutely. I look forward to popping in to Kit or Mecca so I can have a play with the colours.
I have redness in my cheeks and would never use a blush. I use medium coverage with my foundation and just a bit of The Aphrodisiac and it looks natural and not too heavy. Will recommend!
Glowy, Long Lasting, Worth it!
I bought the aphrodisiac blush. I have the loose rose color and enjoyed the color, but when I got this I fell in love with it! It's glowy and slightly highlighting, giving me a warm color for day or night. I'm young so I don't like too much color, but this just gives a warm glow that I love, and doesn't appear too much. I only have to use one swipe with a loose brush across my cheeks and I'm good for the day. The product lasts long, rarely have to reapply it and it will probably last me for at least six months. I'm super impressed. I was hesitant, but this came through :)
As a diehard fan of the Loose Blushes, I wasn't sure how I would like the READY blushes; the loose last forever and have great pigmentation. However, I found that the READY blushes are fantastic! My favorite is The Whisper: It is a nude color, but goes on really well and lasts all day (I was surprised to see it still on and noticeable by the end of a long, busy day!) It is also lightweight and gives a beautiful finish. A great purchase and a lot of great colors.
Tip: Some brushes give a better payoff then others - I personally don't like the brush that is included in the compact.
My go-to blush
I LOVE the BM Ready Blush in the compact, Aphrodisiac is my go-to color and I look forward to getting more READY Blush colors. I normally use a different brush, but the included one is great for touch-ups or when I am on the go and take it with me.
Love this as much as the Loose Blushes!!
I LOVE the loose blushes. They last forever and ever and ever. I wanted to try the READY blushes because I travel a lot and the READY compacts take up less space in a travel bag. This blush is amazing. You tap the brush once and your cheeks get a great flush. I bought Aphrodisiac and it is a pretty color on my pale skin. It goes on beautifully and lasts all day on the cheeks. I expect the compact to last 6 months or so with everyday use and even longer if I mix it up with a cooler color for my winter looks. Try it and you'll love it!
This product is very innovative. It stays on in FL 90f heat! ANd goes swimming and to the BEACH as well! I give it a FIV E STAR RATING!
great blush -- brush is useless
I received this as a free gift in "The Whisper" when purchasing another starter kit. I loved it when the sales assistant applied it in the store. However, when I tried it at home, nothing. I couldn't see anything and thought it was way too light for me I wear golden tan. I thought it was either too light or the sales assistant gave me the wrong color. I started using it with a blush brush I bought with another kit I purchased and what a difference!! That brush they give you with the blush is useless. Get rid of it and give us more product or give us a real brush!
Amazing....except for the brush!
Like nearly all of the BE products, this is a fantastic product, but get rid of that ridiculous brush and just give us more blush!
I use this as a blush and also as an eye shadow. Love it as both. After not being able to apply any products on my face and eyes after the birth of my son 22 months ago due to allergies - being able to find products to help stop the burning, itching and watering has been a GODSEND! Thanks BE!
This blush is the one!!
My all-time favorite colors are The aphrodisiac, a warm peach color & The one, a neutral pink color. Application is easy and even, non-drying. Great staying power. They last all day on my combination skin(rosacea-prone) and olive tan skintone. In my opinion, The amount of product is somewhat smaller when compared to the cost and loose minerals.
I believe all baremineral products are totally cruelty-free including all ingredients, But would love to see them vegan soon! Thanks..
This is a great blush! I am Golden Medium (I'm Asian) and this color looks lovely and natural. I usually go for peachy blushes, so I'm glad I bought it. If you want a natural color that's close to your natural flush, this will work for you if you're Golden Medium like myself. Some people say the brush that comes with it, isn't that great, but I think it suffices. I do wish it had more product in it instead of a brush, b/c most people like to use a separate brush anyways! I also use the tapered blush brush separately.
Overall, I recommend this blush if you're going for a natural flush. A little goes a long way and you can layer it, which is why I also recommend this blush. The big mirror is also a plus!
The Secrets Out
I really like this blush. It is easy to apply, easy to blend, easy to build to desired color. This color (the secrets out) makes me look like I am naurally flushed. I am really happy with this, and I'm really enjoying all of the ready products.
The color I originally wanted was out at my boutique, but I was willing to try another that would suit my very fair skin. I swatched this on my hand, and haven't looked back since!
The color provides a very natural, healthy look to the apples of your cheeks. My skin is very fair, and I don't find the color to be overbearing or too deep. Overall, it's definitely an every day color for all times of the year!
All blushes are not the same
I always bought good foundation and powders, but just Maybelline or Revlon blush. Well I went to build my kit, and blush was included, and its amazing. Its soft, little goes along way. This color looks fushia but its a softer color on. I love it! Words cant explain the difference, but you 'll see it.
Love the color! Seems like a color great on any skin tone. Honestly, I adore the entire READY collection.
Negative - Get rid of that silly little brush and give us more blush ! When I was in the store, the consultant used a completely different brush. I eventually threw mine out and use my Flawless Face brush instead.
This blush came in a kit from QVC. Finally something that is not pink. Coverage is good. Hopefully the color will not be discontiued.
Great for LIGHT Skintones
I have a hard time with finding a blush for my light skintone that also looked natural. This is The One for me! I will say the brush it comes with isn't the best. Just use a nice blush brush.
The One is The One
My previous glowing review was deleted. So, I'm trying again.
If you want the most natural looking blush, you pick one that is the same color as when you flush, right? So, for many more years than I will admit to, I bought a blush that accomplished its purpose. (I bought others for "looks," but I had found my blush and was sticking with it for everyday wear.)
On a whim, I tried this new blush by Bare Escentuals. Hello! How can a blush in the same basic color look so much better?! I was very impressed by the color, texture, and finish. It went on smoothly (with my usual blush brush - I never trust brushes included with products), took very little product to get the color right, and lasted longer than I did.
I suggest that you go into a store to find the right color if you're going for your natural flush. Here's a tip for when you get there: Squeeze a finger so that the tip flushes, then find the blush that matches the color of your fingertip. Voila! You found your natural blush.
Another big disappointment!
Pretty color, which is why I gave it two stars instead of just one, but goes on spotty and patchy. Not as good as the regular powder blushes, which I am returning to. The small brush is useless, and very much like cheap drugstore makeup. Even with a nice brush, it doesn't go on smooth and pretty like typical bare minerals. Wish I had kept the packaging to return it. What a disappointment!
