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.

It works especially nicely with the Kiehls daytime oil

Obsessed with RCMA foundation palettes

This is my third RCMA palette and is great for when I'm pale. It took me a while to figure out how to use this product but I picked up a few tricks- don't use too much, don't use a pigmented powder or it cakes because pigment and pigment = cakiness and using a tiny bit with a good synthetic brush.
It's really long lasting, great coverage (it covers my age spot) and doesn't cake at all. If y...

Not what I expected but still nice!

I thought this would be full coverage and a thicker, hydrating texture, but it’s surprisingly thin and sheer - It’s VERY buildable and looks beautiful on the skin - I use it more to adjust foundation colour for a more exact match rather than using it as a foundation alone
