The last thing Vincent Kehoe of the Research Council of Makeup Artists wanted to do was create more of the same in the world of foundations. It was this desire that revolutionized the world of makeup as we know it, spawning the now-legendary RCMA Foundation. Considered the top choice of professionals everywhere, RCMA Foundation is a staple in many an artist's kit. A professional, highly pigmented, blendable cream base that is formulated without perfume, mineral oil or lanolin, RCMA Foundation is ideal for photography, film and anywhere high-definition quality is needed with a finish that feels light enough for every day wear as well. Each pan size in this palette is 0.08oz and is enough for 10-15 applications each. Not sure what color you need? Buy a sample!
"I carry RCMA professional makeup palettes in my kit. This is a great foundation for print, TV, film and bridal. I am never caught without the right color when I have these! They're a must-have if you can't afford to fill your kit with full sized products but need a wide range of shades in a few, easy to handle palettes." --Mary Erickson
What makes RCMA so different?
Other Ways to Try RCMA:
Net Weight: 1.4oz / 39gm. Palette Measures 6.3" x 4" x 0.5" - 160mm x 101mm x 13mm.
Cream cosmetics often "sweat" and form small beads of moisture on the surface. This is normal and does not in any way effect the quality of the product.

This is a staple in my kit. Coverage is amazing, lasts ALL DAY! I work with a lot of brides and here in New England, just about everyone wants a more structured face and neutral eyes. With this palette, I highlight, I contour, I conceal any blemishes, and I can build coverage. But most importantly, I can customize a guest's specific shade, PERFECTLY. I feel like a chemists!
I do recommend researching the product before hand just so you can get a gist of how to work with it. That way, learning how to use the palette correctly will come easier to you =)

I work with my husband, who is also the photographer. When I first used this palette correctly (yes, there is a learning curve) he called me back in the computer room and said to me: "Look, I'm not complaining, and his skin looks great, but did you apply make up all over his face? I can't see anything. It just looks like his skin!" He was blown away by RCMA and even asked me to teach him how to use it. Why did I take so long to find you RCMA? Love, love, love!

All pro's AND anyone that has a fetish for superior beauty products...should own at LEAST these RCMA sample pallets. I have this in both Shinto #11 and KO #10 and never have to pull anything from outside of these trays when using them for cover/conceal/base/contour...anything. Just outstanding. The pigmentation in this brand is unparalled.
The full size pallets seem pricey, but are PENNIES compared to what you would put out with any other brand.
I hear and see many comments of those surprised at the size (thickness) of these pallets/per cost. That they expected them to be larger.
Im sure these folks ate those words once they started playing around with them. lol There is enough product in these samples to last a moderately busy pro months & months! On a personal level? Possibly YEARS!
I cant say enough good thigs about RCMA..so I best stop now before I write a book.
Dont think it over any longer......GET IT. You'll be pleased you did.

LOVE THESE AND HAVE BEEN ADDICTED TO THESE FOR A COUPLE YEARS NOW!....I HAVE ADDED THE MOISTURIZER TO MY COLLECTION AND I AM JUST IN LOVE WITH THE WAY THE FOUNDATION GOES ON OVER THE MOISTURIZER....NEXT, I PLAN ON ADDING THE THINNER TO MY COLLECTION...WISH RCMA MADE A SET WITH THE PALETTE MOISTURIZER, THINNER, AND THE SETTING POWDER FOR A SPECIAL PRICE....BUT I'M RATING THE QUALITY OF THE PALETTE AND I GIVE ALL RCMA PRODUCTS I'VE USED 5XL STARS :)
Posted by MARTA KRAWIECKI on Oct 17th 2014
DON'T EVEN THINK TWICE ABOUT GETTING THE BIGGER BOTTLE...I GOT THE 2 OZ JUST BECAUSE I WANTED TO TRY IT OUT WITH THE REST OF MY RCMA COLLECTION AND JUST LOVE THE WAY IT FEELS....HONESTLY I LIKE THIS MOISTURIZER BETTER THAN MY CLINIQUE MOISTURIZER THAT I'VE BEEN USING FOR YEARS!

Had discovered RCMA following a Wayn Goss recommendation, claiming it to be "the best makeup in the world", and swapped the Graftobian pallettes I originally intended to buy with the 2 RCMA sample-size pallettes. All and all I think they are a GREAT buy: being a fan of a light-to-medium, dewy finish coverage, I tend to thin them quite a lot using the RCMA thinner and think they resemble Mac's FACE AND BODY foundation's consistency that way, which works for me. The result is a very flattering, natural looking skin which photographes beatifully and hardly needs FS touchups, I've been told. thinning it down will also prolong the wear of the pallette, so great as well:) Cons: RCMA's collection seems to be missing a truely light shade - their lightest one, Porcelain, is too dark for fair skin tones, in my opinion. Also, the dewy finish maybe less suitable for oily skin in hot weather. Also 2, keep in mind that working with the pallette is more fassy than simply dabbing a liquid foundation all over. I tend to combine it with FAB foundation ans thinks it works well togetter, and will address most skin tones. I love these pallettes very much and recommend them passionately :)

I NEVER wrote a review before this, even if I really liked the product. But oh my God. This palette is just amazing. I get a bunch of weddings and this is my go to product, if not airbrush. This palette will seriously minimize the space in storage

I ordered this product for the first time to try a different brand from what I normally use and I have to say this is the best foundation palette I ever bought. It is very pigmented, smooth and feels so nice. I bought both sampler palettes and I will be buying the normal palette when I run out and this will be my favorite on my makeup kit!

I am a new artist and I do a lot of photoshoots and fashion shows and this pallet is perfect.
Great color variety

I was in a time crunch and needed something I could use on a wide range of skin tones for a photoshoot. I ordered this a week before my shoot and it shipped to me soooo fast. I used a small brush to get into the pots then blended on the skin with a beauty blender. This blends effortlessly and looks stunning on the skin. The coverage was wonderful and it layered great where I needed it to. Best of all it looks flawless on camera and in person. You definitely get a lot of product from this sample size. I will be ordering the full sizes when I run out of the sample. Your customer service is above all others, thanks CRC.

I had this...product recommended to me by a fellow makeup artist. More than one actually. I have no idea why I waited. Great coverage, easily builds, skin feels great, looks awesome... its very user.friendly. maybe like the iphone but for your face- it pretty much takes care of itself.

I wanted to try this product based on the fact (that I've heard) there is 50% pigmentation. I was hoping for a better coverage, with less makeup to cover all my problem areas. I typically wear a medium to full (in areas) coverage because of my problem areas, but don't always like the "weight" of the full coverage. I've been trying several different cream foundations (Graftobian, Mary Kay, Zhen) - the RCMA isn't the answer I'm looking for either. It's not as creamy as I was expecting. I find it comparable to texture to the Zhen stick foundation, and the coverage similar to the Graftobian cream foundations. However, I have found the Mary Kay seems to be the best of both texture and coverage - but not the answer either. My search continues. As for the RCMA color selection - awesome! Great colors to highlight and contour too, palette is so useable and blendable. I like to have a variety of foundations, and this one is a keeper for the creams.

Great product and fast shipping

I am not impressed with this palette and won't be ordering another.
Maybe I need to try another formulation or something.
The quality in this palette is not necessarily better than any of the brand names you'd find at Sephora. Makeup Forever is better (IMO).

It seemed to take me a few uses to "get the hang" of this pallette. The first time I used it I wondered what all the hype was about. Now however I really like it. Colors are versatile very pigmented and covers nicely. I have very dry skin and this lasts all day without that dry feeling. I will be ordering the other palette very soon!
Posted by Tabby on May 12th 2014
Easy to use & blend. It's pretty expensive for little product. The sample palette shades should be placed farther apart, but over all AMAZING!
Posted by Unknown on Apr 26th 2014
After reading reviews and a bit of skepticism, I decided to purchase the sample palette. With all the the different shades, I finally found my perfect shade!! Finally, I can purchase the foundation which matches my skin shade 99%. I am pleasantly surprised by the great pigmentation that can be easily blended using warm fingers or brush but still get that flawless even finish that doesn't look cakey. I am normally not a fan of cream foundation as it can be quite drying in the pan or hard to blend once applied to skin, but RCMA is so creamy that this is not an issue at all. Can be used as a concealer or foundation. Will definitely buy foundation size since I know what shade my skin is. This is great foundation considering I have purchased other luxury foundation which I have found difficult to find my perfect shade.Well worth every penny and an OMG product. Wish I had known about this earlier.

it took a lot of debating on buying this as it is only sampler size so i was worried if i bought this and the colours didn't suit me i would be out a nice chunk of change i did my research and purchased it and i must say i happy i
did this foundation is nothing more than amazing makes your skin look flawless photographs like a dream i'm in love ....
Posted by Trudi on Mar 13th 2014
I love the consistency of the product. It blends easily and with a bit of moisturizer you can thin it for a more sheer look.
The mixture of colors is excellent as you can mix and match.
I was looking for other foundations with a HD finish so I listened to the recommendation by Wayne Goss and I must say, he is absolutely right.
Posted by JT PRO MUA on Mar 12th 2014
I love these two palettes, It's exactly what I was looking for.
It was between these two palettes or the Bobbi Brown Universal Palette but I went with RCMA because of the price, its practical and because it was recommended by a well known makeup artist/guru Wayne Goss. I can now also minimize my makeup kit down and not have to carry so many foundation and concealers around.

1) So easy to contour with this produt:)
2) Colors blend easily!
3) Can mix the colors to get even more colors:)
4) Can build up on this product and it wont look cakey!
5) Put a primer on before and a powder to set it and it will stay all day (I have combination skin type)
6) Recommended by my 2 fav make-up Gurus: Wayne Goss and Kandee Johnson <3
7) Lasts a long time and totally worth the price:)!!

I'm loving my new CMR product.
Posted by About Face MUA on Jan 3rd 2014
I love the coverage, feel, and finish. That said, you will want to get the thinner to make it more versatile. Keep in mind that the thinner makes it more prone to creating a sheen/dewy/glowy look. It does work well to pat on Smashbox Antishine or some similiar product when working with combo/oily skin. I also like sheering it out with MAC Strobe cream. I carry these palettes all the time and have never been without the perfect match.

So much better than i expected! Use with a great primer, I love coverFX prime with this foundation!
Posted by Unknown on Dec 7th 2013
learned on this and cinema secrets... this became my fav... have tried other cream foundations... nothing else comes close in superb coverage... highly pigmented... I use this as concealer straight or thin it with RCMA thinner for a more sheer coverage...
Note: If you're just starting out with this product do yourself a favor and try thinning it till you learn how to handle it's stuff slip and glide...
While not the easiest foundation to use it is absolutely the most capable in the hands of a tenured artist... invest that time to learn how to apply this fantastic product and you'll understand why it's a fav amongst working professionals within the industry... (Five Stars)

I was a little skeptical at first on buying this product because the sample price is little too expensive I wouldn't buy this product again for $70.00 I would buy it for $50.00 and the graftobian palette is the same amount of size and price and its under $60.
Pros: creamy foundation and comes out as sheer but not too much of a sheer. Its creamy like a whipped cream icing on a cake very blendable. With primer lasts about 7-9 hours without primer lasts about 2-4. It's a range of light to dark olive skin tone. You can mix the colors together to get the right perfect color for you clients. No fragrance. Or some type of smell. Big mirror. Good for elderly because jt fills in the linese
Cons: expensive for a sample, the wells are small and too close to each other hard to disinfect. Does not have a full coverage ,has 70% of coverage. The sample palette drys after 2days and you always put in the thinner. Not enough
Posted by Unknown on Nov 19th 2013
I love using this palette on clients! Works well as both concealer & foundation. You will definitely need the thinner! I apply this with a beauty blender and it goes on effortlessly. I wouldn't wear this everyday, it feels way too heavy .
Posted by Unknown on Oct 25th 2013
I have been searching for a great foundation palette for awhile since I hate lugging around foundation bottles that make my kit heavy. Now, I don't have to look anymore because RCMA's foundation palette in Shinto was just what I was looking for.
I recommend buying the thinner. I found that using the thinner makes the application much easier than using it straight up. I also found it easier to mix colors (I'm a shade between SH-I and SH-II) with the thinner. In terms of applying it, I found patting it on was the way to go rather than brushing it on. I do love that this foundation holds up very well (especially with setting powder), has no fragrance and makes my face feel soft. Even my bf prefers this foundation on me over my regular foundation.
Most of the clients I work on are either Asian, Pacific Islander or Caucasian. So far I have yet to encounter a person I was unable to match with this palette. When I have the extra cash, I most likely will purchase the KO palette.

Great coverage without the greasy feel.
