I'd give it more than 5 stars...

I had been eyeing this product for a while. The price seemed a bit steep, but I needed a good concealer. I bought this and I'm on my second one. This stuff is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Creamy & thick, but doesn't feel like you're wearing much! A little goes a long way. After you set it with foundation/mineral veil it stays good all day long. I don't have to worry about it "melting off" or if I should reapply it. I've also noticed a skin tone difference under my eyes and around my chin- where I use it the most. Even though it's pricy, this is one Bare Minerals I definitely won't be without!

I bought the aphrodisiac blush. I have the loose rose color and enjoyed the color, but when I got this I fell in love with it! It's glowy and slightly highlighting, giving me a warm color for day or night. I'm young so I don't like too much color, but this just gives a warm glow that I love, and doesn't appear too much. I only have to use one swipe with a loose brush across my cheeks and I'm good for the day. The product lasts long, rarely have to reapply it and it will probably last me for at least six months. I'm super impressed. I was hesitant, but this came through :)

I've fallen in love with Bare Minerals. This foundation is amazing. I love how little you need and it's amazing how long it lasts. It's very natural looking but the coverage is great, and can double as a concealer in a pinch. I've tried liquid foundations since then but I can't use them as it just makes my skin feel nasty and sticky. Love this foundation.

Will the other foundation shades be available?
My daughter & I use Fair. I can use the Fairly Light powder but the Pressed pulls a bit more orange on my skin tone, so I won't be able to use this. Thanks!
Ha, this sounds exactly like me. The fair is too light and the fairly light seems orangey. I've found that if you mix the two... tap a little of both into a lid and swirl with your full flawless face brush. It's pretty much perfect. I've also used the fair as a foundation/concealer and applied the fairly light over it for a more flawless face, and that works great also.

How do I select the right shade?
After trying the READY foundation, & loving it, I'd like to try READY Blush. I'm 56 yrs. old, use Clear Radiance, but haven't worn Blush in many yrs. As I've aged, I've found that my usual shades of Blush appear too "theatrical". I wear READY foundation in Light & that's perfect for me. What shade would be best for me? My skin tone is light with yellowish undertones; sallow looking. I'd appreciate any other suggestions you might have to "perk-up" my overall appearance (eye shadow colors, lip colors, etc...) I have brown eyes & my natural hair color is dark brunette with little-to-no gray. Thank you!
I'm definitely not an expert, but I would suggest "Aphrodisiac" and "The Secrets Out." The Aphrodisiac is coral/peachy and sorta glowy. With one swipe it's gives you color but nothing extravagant. I'm young; so personally I'm not a big fan of tremendous amount of color on my cheeks. :) A deeper, more grown-up version would be "The One." The Secrets Out looks like it would be an amazing color for what you described.... an everyday color, so to speak. It would go great with just about everything! As for eye color.... try The Truth 4.0. great neutral palette to start out with, the colors are warm and go with just about any eye color. The Happy Place also seems to be great for brown eyes.
