Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Love!
I got this palette for travel, but it has definitely become my "go to" for daily use. Yes, you can buy all of the products separately, but I like having the ability to do more than just touch up my foundation on the go. I can add shimmer or bronzer. It has also made my morning makeup routine easier. For travel, I add a small mascara and eye BB in almost nude- just in case the airline loses my bag! Like everyone else says- this needs to be refillable!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Brittybabe WHY IS THERE NO FAIR?
Seriously? How can you have every shade except fair? FAIRLY LIGHT is a HUGE mismatch on my skin. Guess Ill continue toting around full sized pots everywhere I go.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Azaria LOVE this kit - Please Please don't discontinue!!!!!
The only thing that could make this kit better would be an option for refills since some products last longer than others.
Please don't discontinue this UNLESS it's being replaced with a Refillable kit!!!!!
I keep one in my desk at work, in the car and overnight bag. There is just enough room to slip in a Mascara, liner pencil and extra brush.
I don't normally wear the ready wear products and didn't care for this kit at first...On a whim I used my primer and that made all the difference! I've also found that if I've done my makeup with original BM powders and later try to do touch up with this, it doesn't leave the same flawless finish as using one line or the other.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tinksmakeup Perfect for travel
I love this set for traveling! I use the fairly light shade and am so glad that it is one of the colors available. I slipped in a larger brush for foundation application and use the smaller brushes for the bronzer, luminizer and touch up veil. Having this set has really made it easy to pack. I just have a small bag with my eye and lip colors and I am set.
Rated 3 out of 5 by makeupjunkee I wanted to love it more!
I purchased this kit about a month ago. At first, I loved it especially the foundation. But recently, the foundation wasn't a powder anymore. It became very compact and would not pick up onto the brush. It is such an odd consistency. The concealer was too dark for my shade, so I'm unable to use it. I wish I could handpick the shade I need in each product. I really wanted to absolutely love this kit because I love the idea of a pressed foundation that gives me a medium-full coverage quickly. I plan on purchasing the foundation separately because I'd like to see if this same thing happens again.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shur925 LOVE THIS!!!
This kit is amazing. I keep it in my car for touch-ups. The only con is that the foundation runs out well before any of the other items.
Rated 5 out of 5 by baggies I love this kit
It is perfect for fixups when traveling and fits right into my purse. I really just love it. I am buying another one to use around town.
Rated 4 out of 5 by FlowerGirl NEED REFILLS
I simply love this kit. The only downside is that I can't get a refill for my foundation. I've used it daily for two months and am at the bottom of the foundation. The other items don't even look like I've used them. PLEASEEEEEEEEEE make refills!!!
Rated 3 out of 5 by NWB2000 Refill available?
love this kit but if refills are not available, it is a huge disappointment. Is anyone at Bare Minerals listening?
Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer No "fair" option
This kit looks absolutely perfect for me and I was so excited when I first spotted it. Alas, it doesn't come in my color, fair. Even fairly light is a pretty major mismatch for my skin. Please make this in all shades, especially for those of us who are the fairest and have such a difficult time finding products that work for us. Unlike many other skin tones, we are typically unable to compromise by going up or down a shade. Please help! I really need this palette!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Needs refills!!
Hey guys! So I'm a teenage girl and this palette is PERFECT for me. I put my mascara in the loop and my lip balm in the place of the included brushes (their super cute but come on... You didn't expect me to actually use them?!) and then I just need my own brushes for application. I use it as my everyday makeup and throw it in my bag and it's so convenient for church trips and sleepovers and to apply after sports and working out. But I'm worried for when the products begin to run out because bareminerals has yet to come out with recipe for this palette. And being on the salary of a teenage girl, I don't think I'm going to pay $49 every time my powder or my concealer runs out... So now I am trying to use the products sparingly. But bareminerals please read this and come out with refills!
Rated 5 out of 5 by 15yearsofBE 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!
Rated 1 out of 5 by MsNat ...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?
Rated 2 out of 5 by PenelopeClearwater 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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.
Rated 3 out of 5 by KSweet 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 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!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Poppy 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jayhawk98 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!
Rated 3 out of 5 by ostategrad04 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 .
Rated 5 out of 5 by Deni 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Joy1023 Great Product
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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CatalinaSkyu 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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by sgillett road trip
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.
Rated 1 out of 5 by tennjan 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.
Rated 3 out of 5 by PdsRN 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by c3mcssteacher 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.
Rated 3 out of 5 by unionbay7 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JessicaRenee77 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!!!!!
