Rated 5 out of 5 by Skykitten 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.
Rated 3 out of 5 by hhalford8990 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by tommysgirl 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!
Rated 4 out of 5 by LisWil 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KaseOfFace 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by misslyss 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tinamarie aaaaahhhhh..........
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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JillP 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bugbays Love it!
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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by KatieR 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEfan708 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!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosey Awesome Concept and Great Quality
I love everything about this kit. The products are all wonderful, and it is a great way to try everything together to get the best possible flawless look. The case is cute and allows for plenty of product. Also love that the concealer has a plastic lid to keep it from drying out. I was happy I got matched at the store because I am Medium Beige in the loose powder and Light in the pressed compact. The mini brushes are surprisingly soft too. I also use a sponge for application. I plan to buy another for my summer color too!
Rated 5 out of 5 by MissMud Awesome for traveling
This is so great to throw in a carry on bag or overnight bag rather than taking several products. I throw in the BE perfect 10 palette too and I have everything.
Just be sure to get shade matched. I have very fair skin and wear medium in the ready foundation.
Rated 4 out of 5 by BeautyGoddess Face palette in medium beige
I have this kit in medium. It has medium beige makeup and a medium concealer number 1. The concealer has more yellow undertones than I would opt for (I normally wear medium 2). The colored veil makes my skin really dry so I don't use it. The luminizer was a first to me and I love it. I'm also playing around with the bronzer. The concealer is not that big of a deal I just use it under my foundation instead of after. There is a generous sizing in all of these products btw. There is a mirror in the kit and it does get a little dirty because of all the powders, I would recommend a plastic top next time that stays permanently in the case. There are multi uses for the luminizer and the bronzer. You can use them both as eye shadows and to contour your face. My favorite little part was the little strap to hold a mascara or a lipgloss. A bonus is cute little brushes that are comparable to larger brushes.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ktb0513 Not in all shades!
The fact that this does not come in the same shade that ready foundation comes in is depressing. I am fairly medium and was forced to get the fairly light which makes my skin look to orange looking since I have more of a pink undertone and not a yellow one. I would love it more if they came out with one that was in my shade as I'm sure others would love too and this would be easier if they came as a refillable option because they can make the light-dark choice for the bronzer, veil, luminizer, and concealer and allow you to choose the foundation yourself. I would give it a 5 star if they had both of those options but they don't. I do like that it is all in one and can be taken while traveling which is why I got it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rochound Small but efficient
I agree with the other's regarding replacement packs and a neutral colored case. I wish BE would add a field to the guideline: WHAT COLOR DID YOU CHOOSE! It's a big help when the customer's volunteer the product color they chose. I would like to know if the person who's age, skin type and colors match mine were happy with the color palette they selected. Sometimes I get colors too light or too dark. Sales people are always trying to change my colors for each season. I'm too old to sit in the sun and get a tan but it's difficult to convince the sales reps at Meadows Mall Dillard's that I know what color I want to buy. I was one of your first customers and will remain loyal to this brand for ever. Other than that I think BE carries the absolute best mineral makeup available to consumers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kia214 AWESOME!
i love this set! not only is the ready foundation travel friendly but they've but the ready foundation & everything you need for a complete face minus blush & eyeshadow in a travel set! making this refillable would've gotten the 5th star. i don't to repurchase the entire set or carry full sized compacts when product gets low.
also, i think it should've been 1 big, versatile brush instead of two tiny ones.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Okiegirl Love it!
All of the colors matched my skin tone perfect! I would recommend getting color matched (as I have done previously). I have fair skin and actually matched the Medium Tan (I have quite a bit of redness in my face) and this color tones it down tremendously! I would highly recommend this set to anyone. As others have stated, I would love it more if it were refillable. Quick, easy to apply, and long-lasting. I love that it is all packaged together and I don't have 5 bottles of makeup to keep up with (taking lids off and on) plus the 2 brushes. It also made my makeup look as if it were air-brushed on and my wrinkles around my eyes were less noticeable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scrappekat Thanks
Now there is something that is no mess and fits in a hand bag, But refillable would be better and also a blush added!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by LovelyL I like it
I really like it. I only wish they made the foundation and concealer bigger. I bought the golden dark color and the concealer is lighter than what I was matched for at the store. Other than that I really do like it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Rugergirl Not practical for everyday use
This is a great product for a gym bag or travel but not practical for everyday use. Love all the components but the main foundation powder is used up much quicker than the others. They need to make this in a package that you can refill individual components of it at different times. Great though for travel I love the convenience but for everyday I'm sticking to buying separate ones.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PaletteLove LOVE this!
If you're anything like me, you're rushing in the morning to get ready. I always thought Bare Minerals was pretty quick to get on in the morning, but this makes it so much quicker!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the new pressed minerals, so much better than the loose version!
I love the creaminess of the concealer and how easy it goes on and blends. The coverage is excellent!
The new brushes feel great on my skin! Very soft!
This palette is super convenient and I recommend it to everyone.
The only con is that the compartments are not refillable, but still a great product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zeta Angel Great for travel!
I purchased this for a trip so I could avoid the issues of loose powder. I absolutely love it and sometimes when I'm too lazy to try to guess how much mineral is on my brush, I do this for a quick fix. The creamy concealer is great too, but I still love my bisque. Totally worth it for travelers. :-)
Rated 4 out of 5 by monalisa413 Would buy if....
Nearly every reviewer didn't mentioned the need for replacement products for each item. With Bareescentuals resources, it shouldn't be a huge expense to them to offer this. I would buy one if not for that omission. I don't travel that much, but it's a pain to have to pack so many products and make sure they are in an upright position so as not to have tons of powder in each container when I open them filled to the top of the lids. I ALWAYS put my case in my carry on just for that reason. Until they make the effort to fulfill this obvious needd, I don't think I'll invest in one of these pallets.Such a great concept, though. But even though this is a relatively convenient container, I still have to carry all my skincare products and eye make up separately . Such a pain!
Rated 5 out of 5 by valerie T Perfect for travel
This is Perfect for the weekend travel plans and even for longer trips. I love my "ready" products. Now if BE would do "refillable" for the compacts it would be even more perfect. I like "saving our earth"!
Rated 5 out of 5 by KylieMeg Perfect palette! I hope they keep this product!
I couldn't be happier with this! I love the tinted mineral veil, the easy application, and it is the perfect kit to travel with. It has everything you need for your face, and it has all of the perfect colors in it as well.
Tips: I'd start with the concealer first; keep the plastic insert to protect your mirror and makeup; a little goes a long way with the precision brush; use the precision brush for foundation and mineral veil and use the tapered brush for the luminizer and bronzer; use with primer and WOW does it last! For oily use the mineral veil before AND after your foundation.
Cons: You can't refill it; I'd like it if it came with a travel size tube of primer; not much room to store my mini Well Rested Eye and Face Brightener and eye liner (they fit, but barely; I'd like to see a little compartment on the outside personally to store an eyeliner and my mini brightener)
Rated 5 out of 5 by IrishGrl1 I LOVE IT!
I had never tired anything from the new Ready line and when I saw that this was coming out, I knew I wanted to try it because here was my gold opportunity to try multiple things from the line. I also knew I was headed to Disneyland soon and it would be a perfect travel companion.
I absolutely love everything in it. I typically stay away from any pressed powders because of the fallout from them but none of the powders flake. I didn't have any issues with the shades and purchased the same shade I normally wear which fortunately was an option for the kit. I love the mini brushes it came with and have recently purchased the larger version of one of them because I liked it so much. I also already purchased a larger version of the foundation because I like it so much even though I haven't finished it in the kit yet. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this kit. The bronzer is matte, the powders don't flake, the luminizer is beautiful. I did go through the concealer fairly quickly but I have a lot of acne scars so it's typical for me to do that. The packaging also has a place for you to stick in an extra brush or a lipgloss or anything you want.
Perfect for travelling. Perfect to try out multiple things from the Ready line. All-around great product.
I have been converted to the Ready line.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Hummingbird READY To Go Complexion Perfection Palette
I really enjoy the opportunity to complete the base of my "dressed-up" facial appearance with essentially one source. I need only a few other add-ons to finish the desired look.
But basically with this Palette and the City Lights Collection, I pretty much have all I basically need; it's then up to me to add a few more choices to my Cosmetic area in the bathroom. Which is much better than overloading my space.
What I would really appreciate would be the ability to order snap-in replacements for the essentials as I run out.
Rated 3 out of 5 by JeniferMari please think about replacements for this item
I SIMPLY LOVE THIS ITEM....for travel it is a MUST. I do however, wish you would offer replacements for the items within the kit. As I am sure many others find, you will use one product up before another.... I have to have to buy an whole new 'Palette' just because I am out of the luminizer, which doubles as a GREAT last minute eye accent. There is no point to having a half full Palette....please consider offering replacement items. Otherwise this KIT IS AMAZING!
Rated 4 out of 5 by shellbell12 Almost Perfect
I am in agreement with most of the reviews I've read so far.
This is, in theory, an awesome product.
I feel lucky that my skin tone fits with their choices for pairing on foundation & concealer, but some people are not that way. In the summer, my concealer was the same shade but I used a different foundation. This is not a one-shade-fits-all.
There is a little plastic cover over the concealer which I believe was a GREAT idea. Not something I would have even thought of until I was using it, but I appreciate it being there.
The brushes take a little bit to get used to, because of how much smaller they are in comparison.
I appreciate the little elastic loop in the fold, and I have added a Moxie lipgloss to my compact.
As EVERYONE else is saying, I wish it were customizable/refillable.
I definitely like the idea of this, and until I start running low on a couple of the products, I will even enjoy using it. but...I am definitely more prone towards just toting around a small make up bag with mini versions of all of these products than buying something like this again.
