READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 - null
Tried this on a whim
I was just browsing at Sephora in the mall. I saw this and thought I would give it a try. So far I love it. I have had so many people ask me why my skin is glowing. I have use BM original formula for over 8 years and I love it, but this product just may be my new favorite item. It makes my skin look smooth and bright and I have to mention its nice not spilling my product all over the bathroom sink when I open it. No complaints here.
The perfect pair to cover those large pores
After using the Ready Foundation with the Precision Brush which seems to be made perfectly for each other, I have been able to cover up large pores.
I always start out with my Prime Time (Primer) which feels velvety/silky smooth and evens out the texture on my face.
I was given a tip to cover up pores by stroking the Precision Brush upwards instead of down to cover up pores. And this tip works great!
Just a couple of taps a couple of times will literally cover your entire face.
This is how I apply it 1st) Prime Time 2nd) Ready Foundation 3rd) Precision Brush.
This can also work as your concealer. I use my BE concealer brush either before or after applying foundation. I have a scar near my eye that has a much lighter color than the rest of my skin and I can easily cover it. If you put too much on, just buff it out. ;o)
I feel this is a dual purpose foundation and has lasted me quite a while.
My "Go to" Product!
This foundation has become my best friend. It covers and protects my fair sun damaged skin, and it's long wearing and doesn't settle into my wrinkles. Fabulous! I've been using the Ready foundation ever since its debut, and I actually think my skin has been improving since I've been using it. Sun Protection, No mess, no transferring, long wearing, and I actually use less and have better coverage! What more could I want? Thanks Bare Escentuals!
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.
