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.

Great product, requires practice

I bought this palette as my first foundation palette for my kit as a makeup artist starting out. I found it difficult to use at first but after watching some YouTube videos I have gradually learned how to use it better. Requires practice but quality product. It is handy having wide shade range. Affordable way to purchase first foundations for kit.

Great for makeup kit!

I own this, the Laura Mercier translucent powder and the new huda beauty powder but somehow still end up going for the RCMA. It's such a nicely milled powder for setting under the eyes and below a cheek contour. It doesn't flashback or show any colour on the skin which is great!

Great for makeup kit!

I bought this for more variety in my makeup kit but was surprised at how good the foundations actually are. You only need a small amount and they're super easy to blend. Love the colour range especially if you want to go into the darker or lighter shades for highlighting and contouring.
