      Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      I love Bare Minerals but found the loose powder still goes airborne no matter how well I tap the brush before applying. It shows up everywhere when I clean the vanity area. This compact doesn't cause that issue. I also love the shape and size. Fits easily in the makeup bag when I travel.

            I had been looking forward to trying this product for a long time. And now that I did I regret buying. Product is horrible. It left my face looking like my makeup was just caked on. It made my face very dry and itchy. The color selection sucks. I would return this product if I could but I threw away the box and receipt.

                  Evens out my uneven skintone when no other product can! I would call this pretty full coverage because I don't feel I use a lot because my compact lasts me about 5-6 months and I can still even out my redness on my jawline and darkness under my eyes with this product. I would HIGHLY recommend it for anyone who has similar skin types as mine.

                  I was looking for a foundation that had good coverage but didn't feel "caked on" This foundation has the nice balance of coverage and breathability that I was looking for. With the help of the Bareminerals rep I found a shade right for me.

                    This foundation is AMAZING, it is the only thing that will not break my face out ever. It has great coverage for acne scars and acne in general, no need for concealer. The spf is also wonderful because I'm outside all the time. It stays on through the many sports I play as well.

                        I have used this line for years now, and this is the easiet of their products to use. Just swirl and buff...viola', your face looks fantastic. This product has great coverage (from light-heavy), and your face has a natural coverage with minimal time to apply. The formula is said to hydrate throughout the day, and is non-drying (eventhough it is a powder), and has an SPF of 20...you can't go wrong. Also, for the price, it last a long time, and is easy to take with you for touch up. A+!

                          I have never used bare minerals products and I really need a good quality, medium coverage powder foundation and I'm usually fair to ivory in foundations, I was wondering what shade would suit me best , I'm scared fair will be too light, which has happened to me before with some brands.

                            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.
