Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

I have used this product many years. Wait he'd to compare approx one year ago. Recently went to Ulta to purchase product again and was told there are new product numbers. Ulta employee gave me the one that would match what I previousl had and if isnf close. Too much yellow base. Product is heavy no matter how well try to blend. I exfoliate and hydrate my skin very well. Product does blend well and you're able to see it especially on forehead, area under nose anc chin. I end wiping off and trying to blend with powder. Very disappointed especially since I took the old case with the product number with me to store so there would be no guessing.

    You can have as much or as little coverage as you desire. Quick and easy application. Looks flawless even after a day at work. Covers dark spots and freckles with a few swipes of a brush.

      Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      I've been using bareMinerals products for 5 years now. I used the loose powder and finally switched to this at the end of last year. I couldn't be happier! It feels so much lighter since I don't have to put as much on to get the coverage I need. It's in a compact which makes it great for traveling since it's not messy like the loose powder. If you're like me and like to have some color, go for a golden tone. I purchased "fair" and returned it for "golden fair" because it didn't give me the color I wanted.

        This is the second time I have purchased this product. That is unusual for me as I easily get bored and want to try something new, but this one is a keeper. I love the ease of application and it is good on my extremely sensative skin.

        I use this product every day, as I prefer light to medium coverage. I also use the bare primer, and they are great in combination for smooth application and lasting stay. The powder has SPF and it does truly block the sun.

              Very disappointed with this product. I expected more from BareMinerals. I returned it a week later and went back to the product I was using before. The foundation would get blotchy on my face after only a few hours of wearing it and it was hard to blend.

                        Love the foundation, but once you hit pan, beware that one day the foundation will break up into a million pieces after you press your brush down. It's happened to me and a friend. I emptied the pieces into an almost empty Bare Minerals loose powder container. Great while its intact.

                        Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

                        I was actually pretty impressed with this product. I have been using bare minerals since I was a teenager. My only complaint about their product was that it didn't come in liquid or pressed forms. But now it comes in both! I was most excited for the pressed, and I wasn't disappointed. All the issues I've had are minor compared to the convenience of having foundation I don't have to worry about spilling.

                        So the downside is it doesn't last as long, it can look a bit ashen if you don't put on moisturizer, and there are limited colors that don't look the same as their loose powder counterparts. But all in all it is a great product.

                            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.
