          Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

          I had heard great things about Bare Minerals, so I was excited to try something. I don't think it's a good fit, though. I have very fair skin, but very warm undertones, and the lightest foundation is just too one-dimensional for my skin. I look like a ghost and lose all of my natural blush. Then it sits on top of my skin and makes my fine lines more obvious! The coverage is great, and it's super easy to put on. I just wish the color and consistency were better.

            Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

            This was the first Bare Minerals foundation I purchased. I will say that the foundation is easy to apply and not messy at all (just swirl and tap your brush in the product and then blend really well). The first few days I was in love with this foundation and thought my search was over for a foundation that would cover my oily skin that has light acne scarring. My skin looked luminous and younger. Fast forward to about 1 week of use, and my skin (even without makeup) felt oily and extremely greasy too! Much more than before using this product. Not only that, but throughout the day, the orange oompa loompa effect starts to take on with this makeup. Even my husband noticed my face looked oily and that's saying alot!! Do not buy trying to recover after only 3 weeks of use!!

            You name it, I have it: freckles, broken capillaries, large pores, uneven skin tone, a blemish here and there, oil, etc. For a pressed powder, this foundation truly delivers medium to full coverage. I can get a fuller coverage using BareMinerals Ready than I have ever gotten with a high end liquid full coverage foundation. BM Ready Foundation feels great on the skin, almost as if you're not wearing any makeup at all. It's applied very easily with the BM full coverage kabuki over a primer and I usually quickly dust over with a loose powder for a tiny bit of added coverage and a more finished look / feel but that is an unnecessary step when using this product. Also, I love that I rarely ever need to whip out the concealer as this gives such great coverage. I just wish it was little less expensive but I will definitely continue to purchase as I have been for years now.

              Sometimes this product is great, but many batches are awful! When I get a good one, it has good coverage and can last 6 months with daily usage. However, many batches have hard clay that will not pick up on the brush. You end up having to scrape to make it crumble just so you can use it. So annoying!!!! I've bought compacts that the color varied between compacts, some so light they had to be returned. The sales lady and I opened compacts comparing the discrepancies. The last one I bought will be my last... the whole compact is a hard lump of clay all the way through except one very small area. I'm now in search for a different product.

                I currently use the bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 in the R250 shade. I have found that since acquiring a tan this summer this shade is to pale for my skin tone now. What shade should I use have a bit of tan?

                  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.
