    Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

    I was told about this foundation while looking for another product. I apply once in the morning and usually do not have to reapply unless I have big evening plans. When I first started to wear my new foundation, my 14 year old daughter even noticed the change and told me how much prettier I looked! I am hooked on this makeup.

      Comments about bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

      I was in search of quality make up and I've found it. It meets all my criteria: great coverage without looking cakey or feeling heavy and stays on throughout the day. I'm a mom of 3 and a nurse, it's important for me to look professional while being so busy. The make up stays on as long as my skin has been properly prepared (I only wash with watm water, then apply the bare minerals brightening primer before the foundation). I've been using bare minerals original for 5 years, but I really like this foundation. Will be buying for the next 5 years

                          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?
                          Thank you,
                          Christine B.

                            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.

                            bareMinerals READY Foundation features a pressed minerals formula that can be applied using a foundation brush such as bareMinerals READY Precision Face Brush (Item #: 2249609) or bareMinerals Retractable READY Precision Face Brush (Item #: 2249610).

                            Tap, Buff Application. TAP brush on foundation until bristles are lightly coated. BUFF gently onto skin with long, graceful strokes for buildable coverage.

                          Does it have a matte finish? I have a very oily t-zone
