Normally I wear BE loose Foundation in Medium, and Medium Beige for reference.
The Medium Ready Compact is slightly lighter in color than the loose version, but not by much, and it has less pink,which I believe is a good thing, for me anyways.
The loose version of Medium Beige is slightly dark on my skin, the pressed is a better match!
Medium gives a porcelain look to skin and covers Red very well. Medium Beige gives a warmer tone to skin, I didn't find it covered Red as well as the Medium though, but I will be keeping both!
I think you will be fine if you order your normal color.
The finish to me is a nice soft matte, not a dry matte. No shimmer or sparkle, but at the same time it's not a powdery looking nightmare either.
I will update on longevity of wear soon! Stay tuned!
Medium is on the Left, Medium Beige on the Right
