I have used Bare Minerals for several years now and I use the same color year round. This is my first time ordering from Overstock.com and I do not know if they sell out of date products or what but the color did not match the name on the label and it has a strange odor. I ordered two Foundations, one for myself and one as a gift. I am completely embarrassed that I give this as a gift to a long time user of the product also and had to call and explain the condition and quality of the product. I will not order this product from Overstock.com again.
This is one of my favorite products. I have been using the Bare Minerals 'Ready' since it was introduced. The Light is excellent for people with golden yellow undertones. It is wonderful for all seasons. I would try a darker shade (not a bronzer), for sunny climates, as soon as Bare Minerals brings out a new summer color range. Until such time, the BM 'Ready' is the BEST of ALL the mineral makeups on the market! I will continue to purchase this product at Overstock.com whenever they offer good prices.

The color was too dark for me. I got the fairly light, and I am a redhead with a pink complexion. It was much too yellow. Ah well. Seems like a good product. Not returnable, so I am out the money.

First time using this product and very impressed. Covers any flaws and feels as if you're not wearing any makeup. Live in a humid climate so I want my makeup to stay on and not feel like it's going to melt off. I also couldn't believe how fast I received it in the mail. Very impressed and happy with this product.
I usually use the bare minerals powder but I got this foundation because I have a new surgical scar on my face. this foundation covers the scar easily with minimal application and looks very natural. just note that you need a darker shade than the bare minerals powder. for example, I use the medium tan foundation but the regular bare minerals medium tan is too dark for me.
Would not suggest that anyone purchase the same color that I chose....should send back...too much trouble!

I buy this powder compact in the stores. After reading other reviews I hesitated but ordered anyway. The color is off the charts. Golden Tan is more like sunburst Yellow. I don't know who's skin this would match. May be a warehouse of defected product protected by the fact that we cannot return make up items. You may get lucky, but I should have headed the advise of other reviewers. Love you Overstock but get rid of this product!!
