Pros: easy, convenient, natural, comfortable
I tried READY foundation right away when it was released and I didn't like it compared to the Original loose product. I looked like I do when I'm not feeling well - sort of gray and lifeless. I was trying the same color as my loose match. Finally I went into a boutique and they matched me up a shade and it has been wonderful! I love this now! It is so easy to use, so light feeling, so natural and healthy looking, great for travel, I just can't say enough now that I have the right color!

What color should I match when I used mixed shades?
I use light and fairly light mix Original Matte. Light is too dark, and fairly light is too light, but when mixed it makes the perfect match. So which shade would you suggest in this makeup?
Try to get into a boutique and try them out. I used Original Medium/Medium Beige but in the READY I found those were terrible matches and Medium Tan which I certainly wouldn't have normally considered was a great color for me. I even like it better than the combo loose. It really took experimenting for me to get the match.

Does this compact come with a mirror on the inside?
The description doesn't specify and the picture is taken in such a way that you can't see.
Yes, the compact has a mirror in the lid. Be sure to try it with the Precision brush and light swiping strokes rather than swirls.

If I switch to the READY foundation will I also need to switch foundation brushes?
I normally use the original foundation with the full flawless brush.
Try the flat head of the Precision Face brush. I prefer the coverage with that. Also, make sure it is clean because the texture seams more "creamy" than Original foundation.

I like the coverage from READY SPF 20 Foundation except that it produces wrinkles along my jaw line that do not show up with other foundations?
I do use Bare Minerals moisturizer, prime time before applying foundation. I will try a layer of mineral veil between primer and foundation and see if it helps. It doesn't look so much like it settles into wrinkles. It looks like I have a patch of skin about the size of a quarter on each side of my face that looks shriveled. What am I doing wrong? I am 52.
I had a similar thing when I had a poor color match. Also, I was trying to use it like the Original and when I went with a lighter coverage and swipes rather than swirls the wrinkles went away.
