Big news, Bare Escentuals fanatics and those of you who never got on the powder bandwagon: Tomorrow BE launches its first ever pressed foundation. The new BareMinerals READY SPF 20 Foundation ($29) is formulated without preservatives, talc, waxes, binders, filler or fragrances and as far as I can tell it offers the same beautiful finish and long-lasting coverage as the traditional mineral powder. It has been hard for me to embrace BE’s READY collection of pressed products since I am such a long-time fan of their loose powders, but there’s no denying the ease they offer for touch-ups and travel!
Along with the READY SPF 20 Foundation, BE has launched two new brushes: Precision Face Brush ($28) and Retractable Precision Face Brush ($22). Both contour like a dream and provide a flawless finish. But the retractable brush is an absolute must if you plan to carry that pressed foundation in your purse!
