          Finally in pressed form. Long a devotee of Bare Minerals, the products are not great for someone who travels. This new product is mess free and provides all I was looking for and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an easy-to-use full coverage foundation.

                      Not a fan of this product. It settles into your pores and creases you didn't even realize you had. It doesn't blend well either, I tried applying with a brush. I prefer Make Up Forever powder foundations because they are talc based.

                            A:

                            Suggested Usage Instructions:

                            For full coverage, use the READY Precision Face Brush (Item #: 2249609):
                            TAP brush very lightly on foundation
                            BUFF gently onto skin with long, graceful strokes

                            For medium coverage, use the Flawless Application Face Brush (Item #: 2072347):
                            TAP brush very lightly on foundation
                            BUFF gently onto skin in a circular motion

                            To further minimize oil and shine, we recommend applying Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer (Item #: 2244486) prior to foundation application. The primer works to combat excess oil and absorb shine.

                        • Q:

                          I am using Pur Minerals pressed powder foundation in Porcelain. I like the coverage and finish, but it is too yellow for me, but just right otherwise. Is this similar in finish? And is there a similar shade in terms of fairness, but with a cooler undertone? Thank you!

                            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:

                            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.
