Q & A

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 420 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointing I was looking for a full coverage foundation and thought that this might be perfect, how wrong I was. I have tried applying this with a sponge and a full flawless brush and also the recommended brush but so far I seem to always get the same result which is cakey full coverage. I purchased this in the lightest shade for my fair skin and that seems to be too fair so tried instore in the next shade which seems to be too dark. i apply this after letting my moisturiser and primer sink in but this still looks cakey. 20/07/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great makeup but compact broke twice! I love the foundation compact. Great light but effective long lasting coverage. I have purchased it twice. But both times, as time went on and about 60% of the makeup was gone, the remaining powder in the compact cracked and I had a lot of little pieces left. You basically have to throw it out after that because every time you open it you get the dust and powder everywhere. The item is well priced for great quality but this is the 2nd time this happened to me so I basically paid for about half of what I was able to use - so then it becomes very expensive when you think about what you pay for vs. what you can use! I know I could buy a powder jar and sifter so I could dump the remaining pieces into it and keep using the makeup - but really, this shouldn't be happening to begin with. 27/06/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product but it's been out of stock in my shade forever Have been using this product for several months now and can't say enough good about it. However, I've been trying to order more for several weeks now and it's always out of stock. Hope this doesn't mean they aren't making ti anymore! 27/06/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Redness, Rosacea, Sensitive....Look No Further! I used the original foundation about 10 years ago in my 40's. Skin was in good shape. Fast forward to 50's, menopause, and now ultra sensitive skin prone to redness and rosacea flare ups with occasional yeast infections. I have foundation from almost every line...liquid with chemical sunscreens that my skin cannot handle. Decided why not go back to Bare Minerals? I found this foundation and gave it a try. It's been the best thing. Hardly need concealer, a lot of the redness and bumps have disappeared. The precision brush is an absolute must with application! I also use Blemish Therapy on the bumps. I have stocked up on both products in case they are discontinued! 19/03/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by eh.... very vibrant and glowing. but the foundation builds a film over the top of it, and it seems i cant get enough of it on my brush. 05/03/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT This product is amazing. By mistake I found out you don't have to use concealer. One day before I left for work, I realized I had too much concealer and makeup under my eyes and it looked very caked up. At the last minute I used a face wipe and removed everything on my face except my eye makeup. I took a chance and used the foundation under my eyes and realized I didn't need any concealer. I was so excited. I thought I had ruined my look, but I really enhanced it by taking off the concealer. Now I use this amazing product without concealer and I'm so excited. Preparation time is cut in half. I've tried other brands of makeup but wasn't happy with them. By far, Bare Minerals is the best ever! The coverage is phenomenal and last all day. I am very happy with this. 23/02/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! I love this product, I bought this a few months ago and now I can't live without it. I am under 18, and don't have bad skin but do have uneven skin tones, so this is the best product for everyday use. I would recommed this to anyone looking for full flawless coverage. 22/02/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most exciting find in years! For the past several years I have liked (but not loved) my choices in liquid and loose (mineral) powder foundations...and I had never found a pressed powder I liked even a little bit. So it came as a happy surprise that Bare Minerals created the most perfect foundation I have ever used in a pressed mineral powder form. READY foundation goes on smoothly and provides a flawless finish with a minimum of product. My skin looks young again - bright, dewy, and even-toned. The shade match is perfection - it matches my light medium "natural" color, while blending in the darker, sun-damaged spots. Application is a breeze with the angled brush. I can't say enough about this wonderful new foundation! 22/02/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by full coverage I get an amazing full coverage without it caking and feeling heavy on my skin. It lasts all day without me even needing to touch up. I use the precision face brush to get the full coverage i need. Highly recommend 22/02/2016

Answer: 
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

Answer: 
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.

Answers

Answer: 
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!

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
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.

Answers

Answer: 
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.
