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!
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!
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!
R150 Ready SPF20
I was introduced to this foundation after my mum had started using it and I had become increasingly annoyed with the cakiness of liquid foundations and the little coverage of powders. I have bad blemishes over my cheeks and forehead and this covered it up completely. Also, the minerals in the foundation have reduced my blemishes and don't clog my pores as much as the liquids. Would definitely recommend for anyone who wants flawless looking skin!
I have been using the original bare minerals powder for about 10 years and it worked great ! But as time went by, I started to age of course lol. I needed more coverage and something faster than the swirl, tap and buff. I have found it Ladies ! After reading reviews for a long time, I finally decided to try this foundation. Ignore the negative reviews because I honestly can't see why it's not working for them. It goes on flawlessly without leaving horrible lines or non covered blotches on face. It may seem expensive but its really not because it last a very long time. I like full coverage and it still doesn't take much to get the coverage I want. It takes years off your appearance. I do use a primer under my foundation and I wear it for over 12 hours and its still as good as when I put it on. I had wore it to bed one night just to see how it would hold up because the original one would be rubbed off by the morning, however, the ready foundation was still put and looked great ! This is a pure miracle for us women. My husband even loves how natural it looks. Please try this foundation ladies because it will change your view of makeup. I love it so much that I want to buy another one right now and I'm not even close to being out . What a great product Bare Minerals ! Please don't ever discontinue this product. I'm in love...
So Glad I Found My Holy Grail
I went shopping with my daughter at an outlet mall with plans to go to a regular mall and hit the BE boutique. I looked up and there was a Bareescentuals! Years ago I had tried the regular powder but was never able to get the right match. With the addition of three different foundations and/or colors I thought I'd give it another try. I've used liquid foundations for years, but at 59 my makeup needs have changed. I wanted buildable coverage that was quick and easy so thought I'd try the new serum foundation. The rep had me try the Ready and I was hooked. Color was perfect, coverage was perfect and the Precision brush was perfect. When I got home I played some more - one side of my face light coverage, the other side medium. Easy to do and even the medium gave me a natural even glow. I then went on to full coverage and while you could tell I had makeup on it was an even finish that did not look overdone. My super dry skin did not look cakey and had a lovely satiny-matte finish before I even put on blush or highlighter. Love this product. I'm back to BE!
Great long lasting coverage
. I am 21 and have been wearing Bare minerals for 5 years now. Anytime something new is out I am always excited to try it. This foundation is the best at long lasting full coverage. BUT!! It tends to make my smile lines stand out even with the primer. I have also tried the Porefessional under this makeup (for my smile lines) and it still seems to make them stand out. Other than that this makeup is great!!
