I was able to purchase a palette of RCMA foundations for a recent trip with my band where I did the makeup and I am impressed! For 40 bucks I was able to find perfect matches for me and two band members for the stage. And YES, this stuff looks good on. Really good. REALLY good. I was able to snag the attention of two men and about five women for how good I looked.The cool thing about the palette was that I was able to mix and match - a separate color for undereyes and for contouring and highlighting came in HANDY! I was areg'lar Kevyn Aucoin with this palette! I'm enraptured! And just for those wondering just what was a good match for me, lean in close..... Shinto II.

I really wanted to love this foundation after reading all the great reviews but I have to say I hated this stuff. It looked very unnatural, felt heavy and greasy and slightly itchy. After four hours I actually had to go home for lunch to wash it off! I tried a few different shades from the sample kit and different techniques to apply it including lightly with fingers, then a sponge and also powdering after to set it and it still just turned oily within a few hours and made my pores more visible and seem larger. The only benefits I could see is it covers well, is easy to remove and didn't break me out. But it looked horrible and obvious on so would definitely not repurchase!

I've been using this for a couple of weeks now... and i think it might be love. I have been using this with mixed with a drop of the foundation thinner, to make it a liquid, and blending with my fingers. Powder is a must with this for my skin. Used alone, i found it made me look a bit flakey even when i wasn't. This foundation is gorgeous, it covers everything that you might need to cover and makes you look flawless all day!! I even found a colour match for my very pale skin- KO-G (for reference, even MAC and prescriptives don't go light enought for me). I'm not sure whether this shade is availiable everywhere though, I've only seen it at ACMUSE. Lovely, lovely stuff.Edited to 4 lippies, as tended to 'melt' on my face despite the primer and powder, and is just too much work for everyday.

I love RCMA foundation. I wore this on my wedding day and got flawless, even coverage all day. I was surprised to find that my shade was "olive 1" because i'm usually in the ivory/beige/neutral families. This product looks much darker in the pot than once applied. There is a photo of me wearing "olive 1" in my pictures. This was applied at 7.30am, and when I removed it at 1am the next morning it was still immaculate. Highly recommended. Will definitely repurchase when I run out.

Oh my gosh! I'm so glad I tried this based on your reviews! This is the first foundation to completely match my skintone and look great! I bought the RCMA 16 color foundation pallete (Shinto Series) from Camera Ready Cosmetics online for 40.00. I'm so glad I did, so I could find the perfect match for me. It was one I would not of tried right away. Olive 2 was perfect for my skintone. If you really don't know what is going to be a match for you (a perfect match), I suggest doing this.

I have been searching for a foundation that has enough coverage for my hyperpigmentated areas and one that is safe for my overly sensitive, dry skin and RCMA fits both criterias! This is my HOLY GRAIL :-DI wear NC44 in MAC Studio Stick, Golden in Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick and a 50/50 mixture of Toffee Bronze and Sunset Beige in Laura Mercier's foundation. In addition to one of these foundations I would have to use NW40 Studio Pot Concealer in MAC, so it was double work for me.I use a mixture of Shinto 3 and Shinto 4 to get my coloring and guess what....No Need For An Extra Concealer, YEAH!! This stuff covers beautifully. You do have to be careful not to put too much on, but once you get the hang of it, the coverage can be flawless!! I set it with translucent powder and this stuff did not melt, shift or settle into my lines like other foundations that I have used in the past.This stuff rocks! So if you need a foundation that has buildable coverage, is natural looking and you have been disappointed with dept store foundations, give RCMA a try! The price is $20.00 a pot.

I finally found something that matches my skintone! I always have problems finding something that is light but doesn't make me look like a ghost. I end up using something that looks way too dark. I decided to try RCMA Shinto 1 and it looks great. It covers really well and leaves a porcelain-like finish after I use powder. I've been using Illuminare for years because my skin is super sensitive and I'm always afraid of breakouts. I'm not sure what the ingredients are in the RCMA, but surprisingly it has never broken me out and I've been using it for 2 months.

After hearing about this product from you guys, I decided to buy it from themakeupartist.com At first, I hated this foundation! It appeared to have a thick and granular texture, feel heavy, and look and feel like a waxy mask! However, after learning some techniques on how to apply this, I've found that this foundation is definetely worth it once you learn how to apply it right! First, you nead to warm the product up. I wet my fingertips with warm water to thin the product out and make the consistency smoother. A LITTLE GOES A VERY LONG WAY! DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTSAKE I DID AND APPLY HEAVILY! One swipe of your fingers in the creme is enough for half of your face! Otherwise, this will seem to thicken up and look fake. RCMA has 50% pigmentation, one of the highest levels on the market that I have seen so far...I usually just apply this on my cheeks, and a little wipe of it on my chin and nose sometimes, otherwise I look a little TOO perfect and I look like a porcelain doll. =P

I really like this foundation. I was introduced to it in Makeup school and thought for sure i'd want to chuck it when i was out working on my own. I was wrong. It covers like nobody's business, has awesome color selection, and really makes the skin flawless under harsh lights. It stays on forever as well. This product just really works. I hate cream foundations because they feel heavy and usually look heavy. This one still feels like a cream on but doesn't look cakey. I don't recommend it for everyday wear but it works wonders for pictures and camera work.

Can see why so many other artists' still use RCMA! Working as a makeup artist in print, film and tv these foundations are gorgeous w/ great staying power. Purchased a small shinto series pallette w/ 16 shades. Love it for my kit! Be sure to set with powder, try Dr. Haushchka's loose translucent.Beautiful!
