Rated 5 out of 5 by donna711 Great coverage, no makeup feel
Love this foundation. Never liked the makeup that I had previously selected for myself - color, the way it went on, final effect, etc. My daughter uses your products, (she looks fantastic) and dragged me into a store for this. I love the way my skin feels. Now I made my friend and her daughter try this product. We are all hooked - thank you for a great product. I will go to a BE store next time to confirm color matching though.
Rated 1 out of 5 by libby It looks like I'm wearing TONS of heavy makeup.
I've used the Original foundation for years. I love how natural it looks, but is also buildable for more coverage where I need it. Thought I'd try this as something to keep in my purse... The coverage was way too heavy. It does not blend into the skin the way the regular loose powder does. It sits on the surface and exaggerates every line and crease and gets cakey around the sides of my nose and my chin where oil accumulates. Also seemed to make my skin look flakey in some spots. Just too heavy and obvious looking. Also, the color was much lighter than the original powder foundation in the same color code. I returned it and ordered the original loose powder.

I have very sensitive combination skin. My skin tone is also VERY uneven and there are truly no words to express how fantastic this product is. I have been wearing the loose foundation since I started wearing makeup, and whenever I would throw my foundation in my purse it would get everywhere. When the ready foundation came out I was a little hesitant but tried it anyway, and at first I was not fond of it. I eventually went to a boutique and got properly shade matched ( I was two shades darker than I am in loose foundation) and was shown how to properly apply the foundation. With the proper tools, the prime time face primer and the right brush, the effect it had on my complexion was remarkable! My face suddenly looked more even and hydrated. It also gave my face an airbrushed look. I instantly loved it! I will never go back to the loose foundation and the ready foundation is now a staple in my makeup bag!

I was totally reluctant to purchase this for I have been a user of the BE loose powder for years, BUT as I have aged hyper-pigmentation has entered into my life and the loose power just does not give me the natural look and coverage I need and want. So although skeptical I figured try it because I knew I could return it and liquid just was not an option for me. You really have to follow the directions just like it says LIGHTLY TAP AND LONG STROKES to distribute. A little goes A LONG WAY! I LOVE READY FOUNDATION! I AM TOTALLY SOLD!! I have gotten so many compliments, my confidence is up and I love what I see when I look in the mirror. I use the neutralizing primer and the 2 together is just PERFECT CHEMISTRY! The only draw back is that the yellow in the primer does not totally cover the redness BUT it does reduce it so I will take that - regardless it is MUCH better than what I was working with. THANKS BE!!! PLEASE STAY TRUE TO ORGANIC BEAUTY!!!

Wished I had switched to this sooner. I have Rosacea and Seborrheic Dermatitis. The coverage is better than I expected, yet feels very light. If you apply it as directed, it really does look flawless.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Moonstars I tried READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I am sold on this item.
This is the best and most natural foundation I have used.
I prefere it over the powder in the jar. I touch it to my skin
instantly, it looks like my skin with total perfection. Not a
Blemish nor uneven tone to me. I LOVE IT!!!!!

I have been using BE for 4 years now, but just recently tried the READY line. I really like it - but i did watch several videos on how to use the foundation before I bought it. The videos help tremendously. You really do not need much of this foundation at all - a few taps of my brush is enough to cover my whole face flawlessly. I would recommend getting color matched though, as I had to go up a shade.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AlamoAnnie Just what I needed
I've used the BM for years but lately the powder foundation was looking powdery on my older skin. This is wonderful! It glides on and blends well and allows you to build more coverage where you need it. YOU MUST 1. be color matched in person 2. watch the video about how to apply it. You don't swirl this one or you will have WAY too much. I went to Ulta to be color matched. I'm sure Sephora can also do it if you don't have a BM boutique nearby. I love it!

I'm not sure what these others are talking about, this is a fantastic product. I have used bare escentuals since I was a teenager. I love their products and this is no exception. I have struggled with acne most of my life but these products have helped reduce outbreaks. Just make sure when using this product to get the special brush. It does not cover as well with the buki brush
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disneytothemax HORRIBLE like the old style cake makeup!
I LOVE Bare Escentuals and decided to give this a try! It's HORRIBLE!!! It makes me look like an old woman!! It stuck in every little wrinkle and just rode the top of my skin....very disappointing! And when I removed it, it doesn't remove very well!! I will stick with regular "loose" Bare Escentuals from now on, which is perfect!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by RubyTuesday Best Foundation EVER!
I LOVE this foundation . . . it's quick, easy, and offers full coverage. It's also easy to take along. I appreciate all of the shade choices; I wear fairly medium which is not available everywhere; this foundation IS my skin only flawless! Please make a travel size. I really love all of the Ready products and only wear them now.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sueann Ready Foundatin Broad in Compact
I have been using the Ready Foundation for a few months. Just ordered another one on QVC even though I do not need a refill yet. Couldn't resist the great value. Great coverage. I did need to go with a little darker shade with this one compared to the loose powder of BE. I've been a big fan of Bare Escentuals products for many years. I am 62 yrs.old and have been using their makeup for at least 7 years. I continually receive compliments and asked what line of makeup I use. In the past I alwaysI used a liquid foundation for years and hated it. Always felt like I had makeup on and it would rub off (couldn't really get a good color match#. Then I tried BE makeup #recommended by a friend) and absolutely love it. I will never go back to a liquid foundation. BE blushes, eye shadows and lipsticks are wonderful as well. So don't hesitate another day! Stop by a Bare Escentual boutique this week and get color matched. You won't regret it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Marcia best on the market
I started using Bare Minerals about a year ago and I started with the matte in shade medium beige. When the Ready Foundation came out, I was curious. Back in February of this year, I went to a boutique and was color matched to the shade medium tan in the Ready. I was surprised I was matched for the medium tan, it looks so dark in the compact but it's not dark on. I really LOVE this foundation, it's perfect and the best on the market I think. So easy to use and yes, if you are not careful it's easy to use too much, it does take practice. The plus side to this foundation is you can build your coverage. I use the precision brush and love how it applies the foundation. I have super sensitive skin and this does not bother my face. I think I like the ready foundation better than the matte. My foundation woes are gone! Thank you!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Roxanne Love it!!!!!!!
I'm not one that really ever wore make up besides eye liner....but since I've tried BE i have been hooked, i love that it don't feel like you have anything on and yet it has wonderful coverage...I now use all the skin care products and its amazing how smooth and clear my face is. I highly recommend trying this product I had my daughter try it and now she is hooked.....Love it!!!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by kimm No mess!
I was hesitant to buy this but, oily skin is very different than moisture in this product. So, I tried it, I love it! No mess, glides on like silk, and the coverage is Amazing! And doesn't look or feel like make up! I never wrote a review, but tired of wasting my money, so been doing a lot of research before I buy!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soledad Great Concealer, foundation
For those suffering from acne, this is the product for you. It holds all day long, covers all blemishes, severe acne and scarring in a flawless manner.
It does get a little messy when you swirl the make-up brush, but absolutely worthwhile.
GREAT PRODUCT! Same delicate powder for sensitive skin.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GRAMinPA YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS PRODUCT
I had tried bare minerals original before and was not quite convinced to give up my liquid foundation. I read that READY foundation by Bare Minerals was very moisturizing. I bought it at Sephora (they helpd me choose my color) and I fell in love with it. READY covers my rosacea, does not settle into my lines and wrinkles and DOES NOT DRY MY SKIN. It lasts pratically all day and I love it. It really is worthwhile to give READY foundation a try because it is WONDERFUL.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nessa4u Why oh why did I wait so long to try this!?
I bought the foundation yesterday and so today would be my second day wearing the ready. I went to a BE Boutique to get matched since there are so many reviews encouraging to do it. Well, for me, I am actually the same shade in the Original as in the Ready and in the Matte I can't find a good color, but I am glad that I tried different shades. I am light/medium skinned and neutral/yellow undertone (Hispanic) so I was matched as Medium Beige.
I live in SE GA which is very hot and humid and my foundation stood up to all the humidity we had today. For me this definitely stayed on my face compared to the loose powder. The loose powder will "run" off my face and come off I try to blot with a paper towel or an oil control sheet.
I REALLY LOVE how this formula does NOT make my face itch. The original formula made me want to claw my face off and the matte made my skin feel oily and mask-y even though it's made to help control the oil. The Ready is so light weight that I had forgotten that I was wearing make up at all! Now I need to find someone who needs my loose power foundation because I found a new love <3 <3<3
In all I LOVE all the Ready products!!
I will definitely recommend this to all my sister and all my friends!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love READY products
I was a big Bare Minerals fan a few years ago, but the Original foundation just wasn't working for me last year. Not enough coverage, sometimes was too dark for me (even though I wore Fair!), but the fact that it didn't make me break out outweighed all those. Eventually, I tried to jump on the MAC bandwagon. The foundation is too thick - I mean, my skin couldn't even breathe! I would constantly have pimples when I'd never had them like that before. I ended up hearing about the READY foundation a while back and last night I caved.
I LOVE IT! No touching up throughout the day. The makeup has great coverage, but I don't even feel like I'm wearing makeup. I'm going to go ahead and warn you not to order this online the first time. Head to the store instead. You have to be color matched for this product. Like I mentioned before, I wore Fair in the Original because I am so pale. In the READY line I wear Medium! That's a big difference. They'll also show you how to apply it since it's a different technique.
Only negative - The kits don't come with the Precision makeup brush. There should be a combo somehow.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ClaireBell Great Convenience
This is a wonderful addition to the foundation line! I still love the original foundation the best because of the luminous finish, but READY is a close second because of her incredible staying power and no-mess convenience. I use the Precision Face brush to apply for a full-coverage look, and WOW! it takes no time at all to create beautiful flawless skin! I always get at least 10 hours of wear without a touch up. In fact, I only touch up because my other makeup is not lasting as long. There is a learning curve to READY, but once you get the hang of it, she is so worth it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bene Great On the Go, Only wished would bring a Sponge
I am a faithful consumer of the Original Foundation, but I definitely needed a powder/foundation for On the Go as well. Like others that mention it, I was a little doubtful on purchasing this item because of some negative reviews. However, those reviews compensated with the positive ones and they both helped me figure out that what I needed to do was apply Ready with a makeup sponge and not a brush. (I believe this was mentioned in another review as well.) For me, the brush and the swirl, tap, buff recommenation works great with any loose foundation or powder, but definitely not with a pressed one. I really think that it´s wasted a lot with a brush and the application is not as easy and even. And besides, who wants to carry a brush when you are on the go? Yes, a little goes a long way, so you only need to smear the sponge lightly on Ready and then spread it on your face. Do that a couple of times and you will be all set to go. (I´m attaching a picture of the sponge I use.) I´ve been really impressed with the full coverage, long lasting but yet so natural, light weight look I get. 10 points for that! Yes, if you use Original you will find this a little matte, but I guess that tends to happen with any pressed foundation or powder and I really didn´t find it that bad. And I can see how some customers may need to go a shade darker, but I stayed with the same one I use for Original which is Medium Beige. The only thing I would recommend Bare Escentuals (if they believe the sponge can work better) is to include it on the case, just how all pressed powder/foundations on the market come for obvious practical reasons.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Chasse Went back to the Matte
The Ready Foundation shades did not match well with my complexion. Even though it felt good on, it is a heavier foundation. I did not like how the foundation looked at noon. My pores and wrinkles were caked with the foundation and it looked like I had applied the makeup 24 hours ago. I thought I put too much on but that was not the case. I tried putting Veil on first and that helped some. I went back to Matte.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dindin Best foundation ever!
I've tried the original foundation, matte foundation and this is simply the BEST. It has good coverage and yet it doesn't look as "thick" as the loose powder foundation. It is very EASY to apply with the precision brush, and it is handy to have it carried around too!
Rated 5 out of 5 by mrh1234 Never going back to another foundation!
I received a sample of the READY foundation in the mail and I went to the store the next day to buy it! I used to use liquid foundations, but they were always too heavy and never looked natural. The READY foundation looks like my skin– only better! I really love it! I wear the lightest shade in foundation, but I purchased Medium because of the pink undertone. I also use Fairly Medium (also with a pink undertone) in the winter. The pink undertone works best for me and probably other redheads too. I really recommend this product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by CyberEil Wow! The commercials ar true!!
I was very skeptical about Bare Minerals as I am now at that age where the wrinkles are showing up, and like others, I had heard at this age that one shouldn't use powders as they only emphasize the fine lines and wrinkles. I have uneven skin tone so I needed some kind of foundation to even skin out -- after trying and rejecting MANY liquids, I was desperate...enough to to give Bare Minerals a try when they introduced Ready.
When used correctly, it gives a lovely airbushed look -- I even had 3-4 people comment that I looked younger; what was I doing? That's enough to convince me. There are a couple things to watch out for to ensure success --
1. Get shade matched. As others have pointed out, Ready wears differently than the original foundation - the colors are NOT the same.
2. Be sure to let your moisturizer and serum set BEFORE you apply Ready. This made all the difference in the world for me in getting the wrinkle-blurring airbrushed look I was after.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ally11 Disappointed
I had high hopes for this foundation but it falls flat. The ease of using was great but the colors are not aligned with the minerals. After applying a thin layer, it doesn't look natural, it has a flat look. Highly disappointed.

I couldnt use the original formula foundation- it made my skin itch all day, i guess from an ingredient. I saw that this was a new formula and that is was a compact- an idea which i LOVE! (i hated dealing with the loose powder).
I watched all of the videos for this product before I tried to apply it so that I knew what I was doing and it paid off. This is so buttery, full coverge if you want it, light if you dont and it looks flawless. Wonderful product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeousgirl17 This was my first Foundation
I lovee it, ive been using Bare Minerals Foundation for about 2 months && im already in love with it. It gives great coverage.
Rated 4 out of 5 by MakeupGirl Perfect product for clear/ low brake outs
I LOVE this product because I don't brake out a lot (only sometimes) and liquid foundation is just more coverage than I need. I wouldn't say it covered up my brake outs but it did stop them from being shiny and bright red. I don't like cakey makeup and so this is really nice to have. If you have a little more red on your nose then you would like to have then this is the product for you! But (in my opinion) it doesn't fully cover brake outs.
I also recommend using Prime time foundation primer when you use this product.
I received this as a sample complementary product and I am planning on buying the original!
Rated 5 out of 5 by xomakeupxo85 By far the best foundation
This foundation is literally the best. It glides on so easy and lasts all day! if you have red spots it will cover that up completely! if you use it to cover up acne it doesnt really make the spot disappear while you are using it however it makes it blend in. I would really recommend this product. This price is amazing for what its worth and i prefer the matte foundation rather than the powder
