Rated 5 out of 5 by SheDevil Simple, sleek, and perfect for travel
I recently purchased this palette in anticipation of being away from home for a length of time and needing to pack lightly. This was perfect for travel in size, the make up held up all day and made my complexion look healthy and smooth. My only wish was that it included blush as I'm rather pale and need a bit of color on my cheeks.

I was skeptical about purchasing this thinking that the sizes would be very small and not really worth the money. I was wrong. I love it. The sizes are pretty generous and I love that everything is in one spot. I am always rushing in the morning and pulling out each individual product, foundation, concealer, mineral veil, bronzer, etc., takes up so much time when you are in a rush. I pull this out, put everything on in 2 minutes and have a beautiful airbrushed look. Amazing!! All of the colors are prefect as well, and I had never used the illuminator before and now I don't know how I ever lived without it. Please do not discontinue!

I have been using bareMinerals for years, it's the only thing I will put on my skin. I've never been able to find the perfect loose powder shade and have always mixed my own. I'm so glad they came out with so many colors of the Ready foundation. This kit is just amazing! I can wear make-up without looking like I have any on at all! I'd like to not only use this for travel but for everyday because it's so convenient to everything in one kit.
I do agree with the other reviews about wishing it were customizable because the foundation is the perfect shade but I feel the Ready Veil is a little too dark. Also, I really wish it were refillable.

I've used Bare Minerals for several years and absolutely love it. When I saw the Ready makeup recently, I was very curious about it and wondered if I would like it and if it would be less messy. However, I didn't really want to invest a ton of money to find out I didn't like it. Then along comes the Complexion Perfection Palette - filled with everything I would need to try it all out, and at a great price!
If it were refilliable/customizable, I would give it five stars, but that is really my only complaint. I feel certain I'll continue to wear the Ready makeup and I'll try to keep one of these around all the time for travel and other on the go needs.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JujuBean Great idea!
I really like the idea of having my favorite bM products all in one convenient on-the-go palette. This is definitely not something i would use on a daily basis but it is perfect to have in my purse for touch ups throughout the day. I only wish it came with better brushes and in all 20 shades. I had to buy a shade different than I normally wear and while I think I pull it off okay, since i am only using it for touch ups, it doesn't quite match me perfectly like my normal shade.

I just got this and I love it. I bought it in-store, though, because I needed to be color matched for the new foundation. It was also the first time I tried the new concealer and I LOVE that too! I still use my powder foundation and all that for every day looks, but when I'm crunched for time or want/need to touch-up on the go this is absolutely essential. Another cool thing is the clutch itself-there's room to toss in a tube of lipstick or gloss, or a tube of mascara, or even another brush (in the center there's even a small elastic band) Though I agree it would be great if someday you could refill the colors, the money spent on this (compared to buying it all separately and not having the convenient travel size) was well worth it and I highly recommend.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yomakeupfriend I am in love with this!
I really like this new set, i love that everything is in this little bag and I don't have to pull all those little containers and make and like usual make a mess of my clothes while i apply my makeup at work .
the only thing that kinds of worries me is the fact that something sooner or later one of the containers will be finish like the foundation or the veil and then i will have a incomplete dream set and then i will have to carry another a item aside of my little bag. so if the makers or bare-minerals actually read this i would say please come up with refills so i can be happy for ever and ever LOL. now im going to buy another palette because i love it and i don't know if this a temporary offer so i will def buy another one soon.

All of the bareMinerals products are great; except for the concealer. I am really used to the old-type of bareMinerals makeup, including the old concealer. This concealer is creamy; this did not work well for me. In addition (and this was my own fault), I ordered the wrong color of foundation! But, this will work out OK as my daughter will totally enjoy this product. I just didn't take the time to read about everything (concealer) - I'm used to the "buff" powder concealer.
Rated 3 out of 5 by lightiswhathappens Great in theory, good in travel, everyday.....meh
I am a Bareminerals devotee.... very sensitive skin and eyes, and until Bareminerals I couldn't wear makeup unless I planned on looking puffy for a good week. When the Ready shadows came out, I was excited. They don't seem, to me, to blend as well as the loose powders do, though. I stopped buying all things Ready after I bought a touchup veil that looked TOO powdery on my skin. For me, they just don't seem to work appearance-wise (they were still gentle for my skin), and I love my loose powders, so it's all good. :-)
When this came out, however, I had to try it. Who doesn't want to get rid of the powder mess and make traveling easier? I didn't buy this to be used daily...I wanted a case to travel on those mornings I wake up late, and for weekend trips, etc where I don't want to bring my whole travel case. For touchups, it does the job. I couldn't imagine using it for everyday application, but it doesn't seem like that was its intended use, based on size of foundation and touchup veil in the kit.
I agree with others that it would have been a smart idea to build this case to have refillable compartments. However, on design #2 with those refillable compartments, PLEASE don't make a black carrying case, and put snap close lids on all of the makeup compartments (like there is over the concealer). Even with this being pressed powder, the outside of my case shows powder marks I can't get off, even with water, after only a week of minimal use. Once you take off the plastic piece that covers the minerals and use them, you have powder all over the inside of the case....so I kept the plastic insert to try to keep things clean. I'd recommend the case be made a design containing shades of beige to brown that match the bare intervals powder shades, so that powder marks are not so obvious. And add flip covers to the powder holders for all components (not just the concealer).
I do like that they give you an elastic to add mascara, lipgloss, etc to. I'm still getting used to the mini brushes and would pay more if they had retractable handles/ could extend to full size.
So, in short I couldn't recommend buying it unless you really travel a lot, or love the Ready line to a fault, or they redesign the case to include refillable inserts, etc. I will faithfully use my loose powders at home for the original application, and this will be relegated to the occasional touchup or weekend last minute getaway.
On a final note, since it seems like bareminerals keeps experimenting with the Ready format, please don't get rid of or stop developing new loose powder products! I'd be up you-know-what-creek without a paddle if you do that. :-)
Rated 5 out of 5 by TammiJo_IA Great for travel or purse
I bought two of these off of QVC recently while it was a special price. I have to say I love it! I took one to work for that quick pick me up at the end of the day or those mornings where it's been so hectic getting out of the house I didn't put it on. The other is for travel. It travels great, no mess! I just hope it's refillable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jean123 Love the colors
Everything works perfectly for my complexion! Hopefully the next step well be to have replacement makeup to customize your case. I love Bareminerals!
Rated 2 out of 5 by CurlyGirlsAreTheBest Wish you could personalize it
It seems as though this is a money maker. I love BE and stay true to all of their products across the board, but I was disappointed with this product.
1. You should be able to personalize the shades you put in.
2. Therefor, it would be refillable at your own pace.
I believe that would give this product a longer life. Instead, I'm afraid it's going to be a flash in the pan. It's such a great idea, but the execution leaves something to be desired in the long run.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PetiteLilium Perfect Palette
I picked this up thinking this would solve my issue when I am on the go and the hubby is driving while I am putting my make up on. Rather than having 5 different products now I have my very own perfect palette. This would be perfect for a vacation.
BareMineralsTeam, You did good!!! Thank you <3
Rated 4 out of 5 by Roxie Great palette! But...
Well--I love this palette. I bought two, actually--one for work and one to stash in my bag. I love the fact that this palette is my one-stop shop for everything I need to put on my face. And I have to admit: I feel special when I zip open the kit and the first thing I see is myself in the mirror and "hello gorgeous." :) However, I'd change a few things if it was me:
--I'd want full-sized foundation, Touch-Up Veil, and concealer in future versions of this palette, if this is around to stay. (I sure hope this palette is here to stay--I think this is fanastic!) I think the bronzer and luminizer sizes are fine, since those are to be used sparingly anyway. But the foundation, Touch-Up Veil and concealer should be bigger, since more of it is going to be used in the long run. With this kind of kit, I think it's more tempting to just go ahead and touch up the foundation and Touch-Up Veil throughout the day because this kit makes it so convenient to do that. But this also means that these are the items in the palette that are going to run out more quickly than the bronzer or luminizer.
--About the concealer...I have the "golden tan" kit, but I was a little confused about why I was given a "Medium 2" concealer in the palette. I don't mind it--but when I got shade-matched for READY foundation, I also found out I'm "Tan 2" with concealer, since that matches my shade perfectly. With the "Medium 2" concealer in this palette, it looked prety white on my face as-is, but I fixed it by dusting on a bit more foundation to match it to my shade, and it was fine. Still, I've been curious about this. And I think that in future versions of the "golden tan" kit, at least, "Tan 2" should be the concealer in the palette.
--I think bigger brushes might be needed--like the retractable Precision Face Brush and a retractable buffing brush of some kind. And personally, I'd prefer to see a concealer brush of some kind, or the Light Sroke brush, included too.
--It'd be great if this palette was refillable. Like...even if the concealer, Touch-Up Veil and concealer stayed in their current sizes with this palette, it'd be helpful if I could buy refills of the specific items I need and replace them in the palette as I need them if I want to keep using a kit this size for my makeup when I'm on-the-go. With this palette the way it is, I'd have to buy another kit (if it'd still be available) when at least one item runs out, even if I haven't run out of everything. Or I could always buy compacts of the separate items as I run out of them, but that'll defeat the purpose of having everything I need in one sleek little kit. Eventually, I'd end up carrying around a lot more stuff than I would if I bought the items separately and stashed them in my old makeup bag.
So...this is what I'd love to see in future versions of this palette, if it's here to stay. I really do hope this'll be a permanent item because I love the idea of it. I love this idea of having this kit in my bag and using it when I'm at work or on-the-go. This is a fantastic item as-is, but I'd love to see it be even better in the future. :)

I travel a lot & am fairly new to BE. I've been trying to accumulate a travel set of makeup, but it's not easy. The combo of blush & luminizer was perfect, but I still had to carry all the foundation, mineral veil, & such. This is awesome.
I do wish it had a blush; that would make it perfect. Now if they would only make a similar all-in-one for eyes, including liner, base, & shadow.
The brushes are a bit small. They will do in a pinch, but I'm going to pack my own. There is an elastic loop in the spine that will hold mascara, lip liner, brush or such. The plastic part that holds the producs is smaller than the case, so there is room to include a bit more such as lipstick, brush, or the Light products.
It's not made to be refillable, so try to use up everything evenly!
I love having solids for veil & bronzer. No more having powder over everything.
The box labels the color as "R250," not medium beige. But the website & video confirm that they are the same. It's a bit confusing & I wish they had used their usual color labels.
All in all, this is really a fabulous, welcome addition to the line. I can see it under lots of Holiday trees this fall.

I love having everything I need for my face ready to go in one sleek case! I've used Bare Minerals only since Ready foundation came out, and I am addicted! This palette is a wonderful addition! Thank you!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rokclmr A BE Traveler's Best Friend
I have been using Bare Minerals for years and years, but one of my major issues was always the fine dust that would be left all over my makeup train case. Click, Lock, Go was a step forward, but still left a lot to be desired. Then this magic baby appeared!
No more juggling makeup 5 makeup containers to get my foundation color just right. It's all in one!! No more dust all over my travel gear! I love, love, love this... so much that it lives in my purse on its own.. not relegated to a makeup clutch.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for this great product! It's a lifesaver!

by Ayndie Great For Quick Application
This palette is perfect for me because I need to get makeup on faster and get out the door. I just landed a new job working with infants. So the faster I can put on makeup in the morning, the more I fan focus on getting through my morning faster and get to work comfortably without taking too much time doing my makeup. I included three pictures so that you can see what it looks like in comparison. This collection doesn't come with the Flawless Face Brush that you see. I included it in the pictures so you could see that you get a good amount of product in this collection. Don't let the smallness of the brushes in the palette fool you. They cover a pretty good amount of ground. You can use your Precision Face Brush for the foundation or your Flawless Face Brush if you want buildable coverage. The little brushes will definitely give you decent coverage. I have to be honest though, it takes a while to build it up, but when you do, it's worth it. I love the different shade of Veil now. Before it was Original or Tinted, but now there's different veils to compliment different skin tones. The bronzer, which I'm still learning about, matches my skin tone. Not sure if that's how it's supposed to be, but I like it anyway. The Luminizer is really pretty. That has never failed me. I do wish the concealer, for my skin tone, was Deep 2 versus Dark 2 and I wish the High Dive bronzer was The Deep End. I think that in the future I may purchase The Deep End because it may be dark enough to show up on my skin and I can blend it out. I have a round, plump face so I like to contour subtly to create the illusion of scaling down my face. The size of this collection is wonderful and I think anyone will love it. If I had to purchase each one of the items in this kit, it would be a fortune. So the price can't be beat and it's worth it if you don't wear makeup a whole lot. I like wearing makeup usually when I need to look a little refreshed going to the store maybe, going out definitely and if I'm going to work I definitely want to pull out all the stops (retails jobs I had in the past) but since I'm working with children, I need to have a neutral, fresh looking face that's friendly, welcoming and not overwhelming and this kit does it for me! All I have to add to it is my Cheek to Chic (for the blush or if I want to use the luminizer), mascara, liner, eyebrow pencil and a soft, neutral lip color and I'm good to go. Simplicity at its best for me. Thank you, BE!

My only problem with this palet is because I have to go darker in Ready Foundation...medium...this palette puts me in a much too dark concealer! I am fair and usually normally wear fairly light foundation and the lightest concealer.
