          I've used this product before and like it very much. However, this time after using it for about two weeks the solid powder foundation cracked in the compact and is now all crumbly and almost impossible to use. Ulta's Customer Service told me to "Contact the manufacturer." Very disappointing.

            I had been looking for a new foundation for my adult acne prone skin. I have used liquid foundation for years. I went into Ulta and asked for suggestions. They recommended this kind of Bare Minerals Powder. I was hesitant to use only powder and questioned its coverage. After trying it once I was sold. It covered my blemishes well, felt light on my skin and looks natural. My skin doesn't get oily like it used to with liquid foundation. My skin is starting to clear up also.

            Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

            It breaks too easy! Every time I have bought this product, it eventually breaks and it's way too expensive to throw out or buy a new one so I have to use all the broken pieces of powder for weeks. At that point, it's no fun to carry around the broken pieces of powder in the compact inside of a plastic sandwich bag.

                Shade Golden Tan for medium-to-tan skin tones with subtle yellow-olive undertones may be your best match. We suggest visiting your nearest ULTA store for complimentary shade matching:

                This product offers fuller coverage (medium to full buildable coverage) than bareMinerals loose Original and Matte foundations. READY Foundation offers 12 hours of wear and SPF 20, versus Original and Matte, which offer 8 hours of wear and SPF 15. This product also features solid (pressed) minerals and a time-released hydrating formula to boost skin's hydration by 108% after 12 hours of wear.

                bareMinerals READY Foundation features a pressed minerals formula that can be applied using a foundation brush such as bareMinerals READY Precision Face Brush (Item #: 2249609) or bareMinerals Retractable READY Precision Face Brush (Item #: 2249610).

                Tap, Buff Application. TAP brush on foundation until bristles are lightly coated. BUFF gently onto skin with long, graceful strokes for buildable coverage.

              I have used the original foundation for years & would like to try the READY foundation. For the summer, I wear the original MEDIUM TAN. Is that the same shade I should use in the READY? I've heard the shades differ between the foundations ( b/c of SPF??) and I'm not sure which to buy. Can someone please help? Thank you!!

                A:

                READY Foundation's oil absorbing properties are comparable to that of Original Foundation. To further minimize oil and shine, we recommend applying Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer prior to foundation application, and following foundation application with Mineral Veil finishing powder. The primer works to combat excess oil and absorb shine, and the finishing powder can be reapplied throughout the day as needed to absorb oil to keep your skin looking fresh and clean.
