            After using it for a while all around the edges it cracks and then falls out - what a waste of my money. The light shade - the only option is such an orangish/yellow color on my skin. Very unhappy with product. Not a very thick compact for the money and it breaks up too easy.

              I did not like the coverage on the Ready. Not as smooth as the original or matte finish. will go back to the matte finish.

                I LOVE bare minerals. but after buying this, i am done with it. this is so caky. I get creases around my nose and between my eyebrows and i don't even put a lot on. i now barely brush it on. i don't want to waste it, but it's definitely not as good as the loose powder. very disappointed.

                  Great product to use for a quick, full coverage, foundation. I normally use a liquid foundation but sometimes on the weekends and for quick touch ups I like something a little lighter and easier to apply. This is perfect!

                    I first saw this makeup in a store and was really interested. I had used BareMinerals for years until I found PurMinerals. I switched because I really liked the compact, less mess and portability. So, when they came out with their version of a compact I was all over it. I loved their makeup before and now I could take it with me. Not only could I take it with me, I feel the product is easier to use. Before you had the container with the holes and you had to tap some out into the lid,swirl the brush, and tap off the excess. Now you don't have that hassle. No more trying to get the extra back in after you put it in your purse and it spills out, no more, my kid picking it up and dumping it in the sink. I am so happy they went this route, it was about time! I am a BareMinerals girl all the way now! Goes on easily, with great coverage. Finish with the Mineral Veil and it lasts all day! My mother with mature skin uses it and it works great for her. The right brush is key!

                            the powder went everywhere when I tried to use a brush. Needs to include a different application devise so powder is not wasted. Will not buy this product again but I still like the Bare Mineral/ Bare Escentuals products in general

                                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.

                                Medium Beige, ideal for medium skin with neutral undertones, or Medium Tan, ideal for medium-to-tan skin with cool (pink) undertones, may be the best match for you in READY.

                                Those who use Light in the Original & MATTE formulas may find that their best match in READY is one of these three shades:

                                Light - Light-to-medium skin tones with golden undertones
                                Medium Beige - Medium skin tones with neutral undertones
                                Golden Medium - Medium skin tones with golden undertones

                              I wear medium beige in the original which is a decent match for my skintone. If I apply too much sometimes it can look a little dark. What would be my shade match in the READY foundation? I also have yellow undertones, light to medium skin tone. Would you recommend a different color in the original formula?

                                For light-to-medium skin tones with yellow/golden undertones, we'd recommend shade Light (Item #:2249592) for you in the READY Foundation. In the Original & MATTE formulas, you may find that Light or even Golden Medium is a better match for your complexion.

                              I wear fair in the original foundation. I heard that the shades run different and some are a little lighter and some a little darker. Can you help me out with a shade in the ready foundation? I have fair skin with cool pink undertones.

                                Yes, this product works for all skin types, including dry skin. It is actually formulated with a time-released mineral hydration system that delivers a 108% increase in skin hydration after 12 hours of wear!

                                For best results on dry skin, we recommend applying a moisturizer and primer prior to use to ensure smooth application. Try bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30, a tinted moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen in one:
