Official Stockist of RCMA

RCMA, the Research Council of Makeup, was founded in 1962 by American makeup artist Vincent JR Kehoe. Kehoe’s vision was to create a versatile, long-lasting foundation that looks like skin rather than makeup. The result is a signature formula with an ultra-high concentration of pigments.

Most mass-market foundations contain between 18% and 23% pigment, while most theatrical foundations are 35% to 40% pigment. RCMA's shades contain nearly 50% pigment. This very high saturation means that you need less foundation to achieve the desired coverage.

All RCMA foundations feature the same base of vegetable oil and wax, ensuring that all of the brand's foundations are of the same superior quality. The brand's foundations do not contain any perfume, mineral oil, lanolin, or other animal extracts.

While individual foundations are the cornerstone of RCMA, the company offers a wide range of makeup products to help you complete your look. Take RCMA foundation with you in a Five-Part 'Series Favorites' Palette, which contains 5 coordinated shades. The Cheek Color Palette features 5 creamy glow-givers that are made with the same basic ingredients as RCMA's popular foundations, so the textures are compatible.

The best

Such a great versatile powder and so worth the value for money. It sets my makeup unlike anything else while only using a tiny amount of product and with the huge bottle of product you get, it lasts forever. Also great for baking if you’re fairly pale as I am. Have repurchased a few times and will continue to do so!

Honestly?!? this is AMAZING

My god as soon as I received this I was so excited to get right into it. My first impression was 'wow these pans are really small" but as soon as I used it on my face I realised that a little goes a long way. I used an oil based primer as a base and then used my fingers to initially apply the product. I used all the shades on different areas of my face to create a subtle contoured effect- after this i went over my face with a beauty blender then set everything using a powder puff and Laura mercier powder. Honestly the end result was flawless but still skin like. This is seriously an amazing product and I'm already considering buying a back up. You can use it all over your face or as a concealor. It's perfect and has reached HG status for me!!

A product worth the youtube hype

One of the cheapest and most effective ways to set your foundation! I have oily skin and if I do not set my face, my foundation will slip and slide throughout the day. It doesn’t matter what product I use, the RCMA powder works flawlessly with it. This product is a staple in my routine and I would happily recommend to anyone. Of course, the packaging isn’t great but I just pop the powder into a tub which works fine.
