I have been a devoted GS user for the last 15 years.  My only regreat is that I didn’t discover it sooner. I have been a working Makeup dept. head for the last 30 years in the Film and Television Industry. Like most of you, I don’t use just one product line.  However, one thing I can tell you is that Bio Fond Foundation is always in my kit and I use it on someone on every set. I find that colors are always consistent and apply flawlessly.  It has the coverage when you need it and the ability to be as sheer as a tinted moisturizer. One of its other benefits is that it lasts all day with minor touchups. The available colors are well thought out, from Alabaster to Raven and can be blended to create any shade needed.

Simply put, I LOVE IT!
