  • Gerda Spillmann Swiss Cosmetics Gerda Spillman Swiss Cosmestic Bio-Fond Cream Foundation

    This foundation is great! I was first attracted to it once I learned that Rachel McAdams wore it in The Notebook. If you've seen the movie you know how creamy and beautiful her complexion looks. Anyway, on the Gerda Spillmann website you can try out samples of all the colors you feel may work for you. I ordered a bunch and found out that the lightest shade, Weekend, worked well in my case. At first I wasn't sure I would like the foundation because I had a difficult time getting it to look natural. Finally I discovered that when I applied the makeup using a foundation brush and PATTING (or bouncing) it on to the skin, that gave me an excellent finish. After application my skin appears more even and "softer" almost like peaches and cream. Also just to note..... the red packaging on the full size version is to die for. I was surprised to find out that it feels like velvet, and the included carrying pouch makes the whole thing feel luxurious. And the mirror has been extremely useful in some cases. The only negative thing (although it's not bad at all) about this makeup is that the smell can seem a bit strong at first. It's kind of musky and floral... not terrible, but some people may not like it. I find that it dissipates quickly so not to worry. I'd highly recommend it!
