bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation - null 4.1 5 320 320
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! 12/06/2013
Be flawless in lesss than 5 minutes! I have tried almost every brand from high end prices to high street foundations looking for something that is natural looking on my pale skin! This product does everything I have ever wanted a foundation to do..and more! It's so easy to apply and lasts ages even though I use it everyday, I personally use the Handy Buki brush press it into the solid powder and it literally glides on, no need for harsh buffing or precision just big strokes around your face. Takes less than 5 minutes, Doesn't look cakey atall and leaves no nasty line from your chin to neck! Oh and the best part is it covers any blemishes without clogging them up with any harmful ingredients, in fact they say you can even sleep in this stuff! If you don't have this in your make-up bag you're missing out! I can't live a day without it! 16/09/2014
expected a lot more from BE I guess first of all I cannot understand why the shades of Ready don't match the she shades of the original foundation. Makes it impossible to purchase online, and not everyone is fortunate enough to live near a boutique to be color matched. Regardless, I have found the Ready to be very cakey. It is difficult to apply a light layer, so by the time I'm done my face looks heavy and thick with make. What I've always liked about BE is the natural look, but this in now way provides that. Very disappointed. Plus based on online comments and suggestions, not only do you end up with an expensive product that does not work, but you get fooled into thinking it will work if use the right brush, so there's another chunk of change spent without any better result. I hope BE will take all of reviews into consideration and really work on improving this product. The tap swirl and buff technique is so cumbersome. Having a Ready foundation would be so convenient, if only it worked. 27/08/2014
Finally! I've been struggling for the past year or so, trying to find foundation that matches my skin well, and also has a near flawless finish. I tried other brands, then the mineral powder, then finally I tried this just on a whim. The coverage is just amazing, you cant see any of my freckles through it, the finish is very smooth, almost air brush like. I absolutely love it. It also feels very light and it lasts all day. You may need to blot in the middle of the day but without any additional powder. If you're thinking about trying this you HAVE to do it. I cant imagine anyone will be disappointed. 25/08/2014
Full coverage + shade difference I started using Bare Minerals foundation in 2004. I loved it. However, when I started getting more redness in my face, along with some occasional mild acne, I switched back to liquid foundation for fuller coverage (and it was faster to 'fix' my redness/acne with a liquid). Now, after 3 years of liquid foundations, I had to stop because of some new skin problems. I just purchased the READY foundation in Golden Medium, since that is the shade I used for BM Matte. The coverage is really amazing. However, the Golden Medium was way too light on my skin. I had to exchange it for Golden Tan (which looks A LOT darker in the compact, but goes on lighter). I would recommend getting the shade one darker than you would normally use at Bare Minerals. I'm really impressed with this full coverage, velvety foundation! 23/08/2014
Keeps breaking! I absolutely love this foundation... it gives perfect coverage that I need everyday. It also feels light and airy. However, towards the end my compacts always break as in the makeup inside shatters and is no longer usable. Recently, I bought a new compact and the makeup shattered inside and the entire new compact was unusable. Its frustrating because you spend so much money and not all of it can be used. 01/08/2014
Covers acne I cannot say enough about this product and how it helped me through a bad acne breakout. You cannot put it on heavy or you'll look ridiculous. I used their concealer for the acne leas ions. Also warmth, and a blush. They helped to take the emphasis off the acne. The girl at the BM store was more than nice when she did this mini makeover! I now only use the original foundation and Ready on special occasions because I find it to be more moisturizing than the original and I want my face to be as clear as possible. The concealer I don't think clogged my pores but I watch these products as an acne sufferer. I usually walk around with no makeup for the lesions to heal. 30/07/2014
First timer...so disappointed! As a qualified beauty therapist and make up artist I was super excited to try bare minerals...firstly I am very disappointed in the quality of the brushes, my face felt hot and sore after using them, secondly disappointed in the quality and finish - the shade nowhere near matched my skin tone and the finish was patchy, cakey and dusty. Never ever been so disappointed and will not be using again...what a waste of money! 14/07/2014
What's with the color change?!? I started using/switched to the Ready foundation formula about a yr ago (switched from the traditional loose mineral formula, which I had used for yrs). Found its coverage to be comparable and really liked that it was less messy & more user friendly in my purse or with travel. I always wore the "medium" in the loose mineral, but found the "medium beige" in the Ready to be a closer match to the "medium" in the loose, which I had always loved. Fast forward to now, I was out of my Ready Med Bg. Due to convenience, I usually order online b/c the closest store to me is several miles away. However, this time I happened to be in that neck of the woods, so I went by the BE store and purchased another Ready in Med. Bg., which I had been using for over 6 mos & was very happy with. Got the new replacement home, and it looked yellow on my skin versus the usual slightly pink to neutral undertones. I visually compared it to the old Med Bg in natural lighting & there is DEFINITELY a difference!! Thinking the store clerk may have accidentally picked up the wrong color or misunderstood my request (she got the product for me, I did not remove from store shelf myself), I compared the numbers on the back of the compact. They WERE different!! Old Med Bg was N20, but the store clerk gave me one that said R250. So I was convinced she sold me he wrong one & was going to try & return it. HOWEVER... I just now looked online to order another Med Bg and OMG, it is now indeed R250!! (WTHeck?!?) The store clerk did NOT make an error; BE has apparently CHANGED the color. I have no dang idea which color NOW translates into the old Med Bg. I have been a loyal customer for years, and did not see any communication via website or otherwise that they were changing up the colors. This stuff is not exactly cheap either!!! What is the deal?!? I would have ordinarily given this product a 4-5 star rating, but given the schizo color change that makes me look jaundiced, it now has only 2 stars. I am sooo disappointed. Would have continued to buy this product for many, many more yrs, but not now. :( 07/07/2014
Great foundation!!! New to bare minerals and really wish I'd discovered this range earlier. The ready foundation is a perfect match for me in shade R250. Perfect coverage and super long lasting, with no shine on my Tzone at all. It also didn't sit in the fine lines around my eyes unlike previous liquid foundations. I am a dedicated user for life! Also the customer service in Boots Southampton has been brilliant and very helpful :) 18/06/2014

I found I had this problem on my forehead. I think for me it was because I was using a full brush of foundation straight on to my forehead. I found it better if I loaded the brush and started first of all on my cheeks and then go to other areas like forehead, chin and nose once you've already worked some of the product off of the brush.

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!

Hi Kentlady, yes I have the same skin-type and it works well for me. It gives smooth even coverage and keeps the skin looking shine -free. It minimises the look of the pores and does not crack.

Our bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation is great for all skin types and sounds like it would be great for your skin. The foundation is really hydrating for those dry areas, but because it is made with minerals it will help balance out any oily areas and won't block your pores.
If you are having trouble with how your foundation is sitting you may want to try it with our Prime Time Foundation Primer, which will prep your skin perfectly for a flawless foundation application.

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.

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 (http://bit.ly/bMcomparison) 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.
