      Having previously used only liquid foundations I was a bit nervous to try this, but it is wonderful - even on dry skin! The finish is so, so natural and even after building it to a full coverage you can't feel a thing. The shade range is impressive and the SPF is a plus. Definitely a foundation worth trying!

        I had to take a break from the liquid foundation and chose to use this. It doesn't cover as well as I'd like but it still works. It is good for on the go and I do not find myself having to touch up during the work day which is good.

          This foundation is so much better than the original. The pressed powder helps control the amount you put on your face and your counters clean :). This powder makes bare minerals more mobile as well. I do not give this product five stars because I can't get full coverage (like from a liquid) without it being cakey.

              Hello,

              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.
