bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation - null
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!
Flawless skin all day!
I apply my makeup at 7:00 am and reluctantly remove it after a days work at 10:00 pm. This product gives me flawless skin all day, I have even had compliments on how clear my skin is on days I know I have had a break out. I am never using anything else.
love this product.
I used bare minerals 10 years ago and left. (Not sure why). But I am obsessed with all bare minerals. It is all I use. Anyway this is my holy grail everyday foundation and I love it. If you don't have this get it today. Highly recommended.
Best Foundation Ever!
I've never met a foundation that 100% pleased me until I finally tried Bare Minerals Matte pressed powder foundation.
I have to apply full coverage but even so - it is so lightweight and silky that I forget I'm wearing makeup!
I have a lot of freckles and spots I don't like and this makeup feels sheer, yet it hides most of those flaws.
I honestly can't imagine that I'll ever change foundations again. I was disappointed that I went to Sephora and they didn't have the pressed powder foundation in Medium Cool. I was told Bare Minerals stopped producing them due to low sales - everyone wants the loose powder. Well, actually, that's wrong. I'm not everyone. I much prefer the pressed powder and hope it will remain available!
This foundation gives my skin such a goregous natural glow. I always like to have a full coverage and it definitely gives me that! I love how you can build the foundation up without it making you look orange. The bush that was recommended to have with it is also amazing, gives me such a flawless look. It feels so light on my face it never feels like I have make up on, and plus takes maximum of 5 minutes to apply depends on the coverage I am after!
Great coverage and holds moisture.
I loved the bare minerals original but as I have aged over the last few years my skin has become very dry with more discoloration. I switched to the Ready Foundation to get more coverage and because it was marketed as more moisturizing. Learning the application technique was a little tricky for me. I learned that you must use the Precision Face Brush and pat the foundation all over before smoothing in long strokes to get the best coverage and most flawless look. I have eczema and this definitely helps keep moisture in my sensitive skin and it gives my skin a more youthful appearance.
I love it!!
This product is amazing. I recently bought this at Ulta and I've never boughten powder before until I bought this product. Literally amazing, although its a bit smelly, yet the powder itsself is absolutly incrediable!!
Good at first, not worth it in the end
I initially bought this because i had heard great things about this product line. I usually use a liquid foundation and i just wanted to get away from that, so i tried this powder foundation. It goes on very nicely (esp. with the recommended brush). However, after about 3-4 hours, it does something very funny on my skin. It sorts of settles in and then creates 'lines' of make-up, where i naturally have lines on my face (i.e. from my nose to my mouth, under my eyes). Then where i do not have lines, it sort of became dotted, or speckled i guess. You could see where the foundation had settled into my pores.
Unfortunate because it starts off nicely. I will be returning this product though :(
Nice coverage. Poor design!
I really liked the coverage and found it more convenient than the original. Sadly, I dropped my bag (only on my worktop) but it was enough for it to completely crack up the compact! It made a mess of my bag and was such a mess to use after that, that I had to bin it! How such a fragile product could be designed to be carried around is a puzzle. Such a waste.
Great, but keeps me oily
I love this when I put it on. It feels like silk, but 2 hours into my day I'm checking my face for oil. I do love this product but unfortunately keeps me very oily. If you have oily skin this isn't the product for you. If not, it'll be your best friend!
