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.

Atlast I found a great setting powder

I have been looking for a good setting powder and couldn't find the right one. I have now found this beautiful powder which is not only great but its so cheap in price and lasts a really long time. It's also used by professional makeup artists. I apply my foundation and with my powder brush put a tiny bit on it and put all over my face. Because there is no colour - it's a perfect match to my skin/...

Not worth the hype

I have tried numerous primers, skin prep and setting methods to make this foundation work on myself and clients. There are some makeup artists that swear by this, but I just can't get it to work- maybe its user error. The foundations are pigmented and creamy. But no matter how much I use (lots or little) oil breaks down the foundation, even after setting the foundation the product moves, and I've ...

Not what I was expecting

I had high hopes for this powder as I’ve heard a lot of great things about it and for the price it is I had to try it. I must say I’m really not amazed with it.. it is completely translucent but I find it makes my under eye concealers looking horrific, it made it crack and look terribly cakey. Wouldn’t repurchase
