I love having everything I need for my face ready to go in one sleek case! I've used Bare Minerals only since Ready foundation came out, and I am addicted! This palette is a wonderful addition! Thank you!

Phrases Chosen: neat and easy, beautiful feel
I was very skeptical about Bare Minerals as I am now at that age where the wrinkles are showing up, and like others, I had heard at this age that one shouldn't use powders as they only emphasize the fine lines and wrinkles. I have uneven skin tone so I needed some kind of foundation to even skin out -- after trying and rejecting MANY liquids, I was desperate...enough to to give Bare Minerals a try when they introduced Ready.
When used correctly, it gives a lovely airbushed look -- I even had 3-4 people comment that I looked younger; what was I doing? That's enough to convince me. There are a couple things to watch out for to ensure success --
1. Get shade matched. As others have pointed out, Ready wears differently than the original foundation - the colors are NOT the same.
2. Be sure to let your moisturizer and serum set BEFORE you apply Ready. This made all the difference in the world for me in getting the wrinkle-blurring airbrushed look I was after.

What Size?
What size is the Palette? My query is so I can understand whether this is a Purse item, or Day Bag, or for Overnight Case.
It is 4.5 x 6 x 1 inch thck.

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.
Make sure you hit those spots with your Prime Time, and also make sure that it sets and is dry before you apply Ready. I had a similar experience, and not allowing it to dry properly was the culprit. Good luck!

What is difference between Ready foundation and the original ?
Would you still finish with Mineral Veil?
I do -- it helps achieve more of the line blurring effect I am looking for. Good luck!!
