    Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

    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

                  THIS HAS BETTER COVERAGE THAN THE BARE MINERALS LOOSE POWDER AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO USE AS MUCH SO IT LASTS LONGER. THE BEAUTY CONSULTANT TOLD ME YOU SHOULD ORDER THE PRESSED POWDER 2 SHADE DARKER THAN THE SHADE YOU USE OF THE LOOSE POWDER.

                    I bought the same color that I use in the powder, hoping for a portable way to use this brand. It went on very clumpy, and was a completely different color than the loose powder. After an hour, it looked like I had orange alligator skin on my forehead, with the rest clumping in weird ways.
                    Quite a disappointment, and a loss of $

                      This is so easy for me to quickly apply as a mom of 3 under 5! I can get an even skin tone and great coverage without even having to use concealer or additional products. The key to good application with this is using the correct brushes that Bare Minerals has!

                            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?

                            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:
