Q & A

READY SPF20 Foundation - null is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 518.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortless Beauty I used to suffer from mild acne and was using the 'BE Original Foundation' and although it was a blessing that I managed to stumble upon it, it was very time consuming trying to cover all my imperfections. When I heard BE had come out with a new compact foundation I immediately had a look online, though there were not as many positive reviews as I thought. My biggest concern was: is this foundation going to be as light and breathable as the Original Foundation? Well I went to a local store and tried it on and WOW! 2 effortless minutes to flawless skin! And just for the record it was just as light and breathable as the Original Foundation AND takes less then half the time to apply! A truly AMAZING product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NEED TO MAKE THIS AGAIN! Best foundation powder ever used. Not sure why it was discontinued. I do not like the Pro Powder that replaced this one. I need them to bring back the R330 Golden Tan. It was perfect! Great coverage and easy to put on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was my favorite ever! This was my favorite foundation. I always received so many compliments! I just bought bare Pro and it's horrible. It doesn't have any coverage, doesn't have the same glowing look and I feel like I have to put a bunch of layers. Even then, it does not compare. I will be trying a different brand from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a lifesaver I just recently purchased this product and I'm completely satisfied with it. It helps make my skin look flawless. I have large pores but when I started wearing this product it made my skin look smoother. I do receive a lot of compliments. I hope you will not discontinue this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLEASE DON'T DISCONTINUE THIS PRODUCT I'm turning 55 in a few days and needed to replace my READY Foundation (R250) and I'm in a bit of distress that you are not producing it any longer in the shade that I need!! I have previously used other designer brand foundation, but when I found Bare Minerals it was everything I needed for my very oily skin (although the loose powder was a messy pain as I travel with a daily makeup bag for touch ups). When you started making the READY Foundation with the SPF20, I was completely sold and it's been the best foundation I have ever used for my skin type. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make my birthday wish come true and bring it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from please dont discontinue! really like this foundation - gutted that bare minerals are discontinuing. ! natural look not cakey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation ever I feel so lucky to have just ordered my R310 foundation, after looking everywhere for one in stock. When i heard this had discontinued I went into meltdown - Have used the range for years and nothing else compares. I'm so frustrated that I am trying to find an email/postal address to formally complain :) They should listen to their customers - All of these people will not use the awful PRO alternative, instead spending money elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's gone and I'm devastated! Why oh why would you discontinue this foundation?! I have since tried bare pro and your liquid foundation and have major appearance issues with both. I've been a super loyal customer for 3-4 years and am considering searching elsewhere for a similar product because I miss it so much. The READY foundation covered my skin and blemishes so well, felt lightweight, gave me healthier looking skin and didn't seem to dry out or clog my pores. Please listen to your customers and BRING BACK READY FOUNDATION!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready Foundation Please please please do not discontinue this product. I have been using it for three years and nothing else compares. I will have to look elsewhere for a foundation if you discontinue the Ready Foundation. My absolute favorite and now I have converted all of the females in my family from wearing other foundations to Ready Foundation, only to have it discontinued. Please bring it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from By far the best I can't believe this has been discontinued! I suffer from rosacea and find this is the only foundation that covers the redness. Bare Pro doesn't compare to this product. I've even had to complain about it as I was told it was better coverage which is completely untrue. It's the worse coverage I've used from Bare Minerals. Unfortunately if they don't bring this back I'll have to look at alternative brands :-(

Q & A

I recently purchased the ready foundation, after couple of hours the foundation tends to get cakey and patchy around the face, but mostly on the nose?

before i apply i use a cleanser and moisturiser as well as the prime time primer, and use the flawless foundation brush to apply, also apply mineral veil, i do not put a lot of foundation on also, just one layer as during the day it gets cake and patchy ! :(
Asked by: Raaz
Make sure you let your moisturiser sink in properly first and your primer the same and use the foundation sparingly apply in wiping motions instead of buffing one tap should do half your face

is this suitable for vegans?

I can't tell from the ingredients but does this contain animal products?

I currently have medium beige N20 in the original powder form, what would be the equivalent in ready foundation?

I would like to find the equivalent ready foundation to the original powder foundation in shade N20, medium beige?
Asked by: GraceF
All I can say is get shade matched because you are normally a couple of shades darker in the ready formulation I'm fairly light in the original and r170 in the ready

Is this suitable for my 49 year old,still oliy skin;problem areas sides of nose&chin with pores/product cracking?

How about fine lines under eyes?
Asked by: Kentlady
I'm 47 & can assure you that it doesn't settle in any fine lines. I do have a tip to minimise any 'pore settling' which can happen around the nose area; leave that area until last & only use the brush when you've buffed everywhere else on your face & it's 'empty'. That way you won't over-apply. Also use a primer but don't apply any foundation until it's completely absorbed. Hope that helps!

Has my shade been discontinued?

Hi, When I bought this foundation, the colour I bought was called N20 Medium Beige, has it been renamed or discontinued?
Asked by: Jule5y
I'm sure they still do this colour. If you have the tub maybe take it down to BM and see what they say? If it has been discontinued they I'm sure they will be able to match a similar colour to you. Hope that helps.

What shade am I?

I use medium dark so I was wondering which shade I would be in this foundation
Asked by: Kundi
It is very difficult to tell what shade you will be in bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation without a shade match as the shades are so different from our loose foundation formulas. Our comparison guide ( indicated you could be either R450, R470 or R530. We do suggest that you pop into your local bareMinerals counter to get properly shade matched to ensure you get the right shade. bareMinerals x
