Bare Minerals READY Foundation - what are you using instead?

I know I am late to the game here, and I have tried to search for posts about this.

I am beside myself trying to find something that has as good of full coverage as Bare Minerals READY Foundation pressed powder had.  They have discontinued it.  The Bare Pro is a flop for me.  Maybe light to medium coverage.  I have the IT Illumination.  It's ok, but coverage is not the same.  I need a pressed powder that is like a magic eraser.  Why did they discontinue READY????  What have you replaced it with?

Thank you so much.

People are raving about the new Revlon infallable powder foundation.  Fenty powder foundation is also getting good reviews and looks to have excellent coverage.  I've never used either of those or the Bare Minerals Ready foundation.  Jane Iredale pure pressed base has been my go-to for a long time, but it seems like they have changed the formula, and I'm irked with the new compacts and having to pay so much for a refill only.  I just splurged and ordered Chantecaille.  If I don't like It, I'm trying the Fenty and Revlon.  Good luck finding something you enjoy!

The Bare PRO pressed powder I have used is Aspen #4. Covers well for me.

i have been a bare minerals original foundation user for some 20 years. I can not use anything else (break out). The original foundation goes on flawless for me ( use a good brush, make up forever #124 brush is my favorite brush) to use for applying my foundation.

I didn't know anyone else in the world like that brush but me.  I am happy to know I'm not the only one.  In fact, all my favorite brushes are from Makeup Forever.
