Now this product is definitely treading the Holy Grail territory with me. Acne prone, oily plus super sensitive skin - BOO. Since I have started using this my face can breathe. It is reaping the benefits. I even use a lighter and darker colour for my highlight and contour. Just absolutely perfect. I get 10-12 hours of wear, doesn't break me out, hydrates my skin without dripping off into a hot mess, and most of all it gives any kind of coverage you are looking for - depending on which type of brush you use. It is perfect, if you haven't tried it, try it.

First off, I work for bareMinerals, but let me tell you: I did not always love this foundation. In fact, when it first launched I couldn't stand it. I was always matte foundation every day. Ready seemed to settle in my overly large pores. It looked chalky and slid off. Then I used the original primer instead of oil control and it looks FABULOUS! I can't imagine my face without this foundation. With original primer this the perfect foundation. You need it

Very coarse powder. Looks very artificial, like a mask. Cakes and does not set, even with primer.
Overpriced for a poor quality product, but sensible packaging.

I too really wanted to love this foundation; but it was really a miss for me. A girl at my work wears it and I love how her make-up looks most days but she does have more oily/acne prone skin which might help this foundation stay on I guess? I think she also might use other products for more coverage.
I don't have perfect skin or anything but mainly just uneven skin tone but I do like at least a little coverage! I am combo/dry skin and I just felt this really made me look chalky. I stayed away from powder foundations because I thought powder doesn't work well with any dry skin and that it doesn't have much coverage; but since the girl at my job said otherwise I thought I'd give it a try. (I really wanted to also try it and love it because I just hate feeling the liquid foundation on my face throughout the day.)
Well unfortunately it did do exactly what i was afraid of ! It did show some of my dry patches around my forehead and just did not make anything look smooth! It also reminded me almost of a self-tanner that takes hours to develop...because I would put the foundation on but then I couldn't really see how much was actually on unto a couple hours later?? Weird.
Anyways the Pros were the packaging was really nice and simple for daily or on the go use. It does have the matte black casing though so fingerprints will show up but still a nice mirror and case.
I also did love that I really didn't feel this on my face at all throughout the day! I liked that I didn't feel heavy or much on my face at all, so I'm confused where people say this gets cakey because I think its the opposite problem where it doesn't really show up much on the face so you don't feel much which also only equals okay coverage even when built up, primer, etc.
So I sadly returned it after 4 days of trying to make it work. I might try their original formula just in case to make sure not all mineral/powder foundation it hopeless.
I've also tried one mineral foundation a few years ago and remember that mineral make up did sort of glide on...might go try that one again.

I have been a fan of Bare Escentuals for a number of years. However, I made a special trip out of my area to purchase this product after seeing it advertised, and I was not impressed. I felt it was very cakey after a while, and I did not like the way it looked on my skin. I wound up using the loose mineral makeup as usual, and I gave this to my sister!

Awww, hell noooo....this stuff just emphasizes flaws and any sort of peach fuzz you may have. The worse part of this hot mess? It broke me out in huge zits. Just when my face was finally 100% clear. Grrr..... I'd say no go to all acne prone and oily ladies.

This stuff is gold...I use is every morning before school and on the weekends when I volunteer....my face looks like my face only prettier...you cannot tell I am wearing makeup... it is awesome for first date make up too...you look pretty but still natural and normal

I'm gonna have to agree with the rest of the reviews I've read lately... unless you're super oily or have primer on, this product will not stick to you. I tried it out at Ulta and it covered nicely. I came home that weekend and began to get ready for a wedding. I used the NYX HD primer under this and it glided on very well! Covered perfectly! But it is soo matte. A little too matte. It made my nose disappear in non-flash selfies. It looked like I fell into a bowl of flour... anyways, I've always worn the award-winning loose powder so since I was told it has a little more coverage than the Original BM loose powders, I decided to use this READY foundation as an everyday wear, no primer, no nothing. Next day, I'm getting up for work. It did NOT glide onto my skin whatsoever. I wiped it off and tried moisturizer underneath. I waited for the moisturizer to dry and applied the foundation. It completely streaked my face. Some spots the powder stuck, some spots didn't. I did not want to apply primer and foundation and setting spray/powder EVERY SINGLE DAY. I want a light, on-to-go look. This definitely is not the one. And for $29 dollars?? I'd rather use Revlon's Photoready or Colorstay for $10 bucks.

This is the first bareminerals product I've owned. And it was the most horrible product I've owned. Cons: cakey, made my pores look bigger, made me oily faster Pros: less breakouts, packaging. Overall, I'm never going to buy this product again.
