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.

I have used this pallet a long time ago and remembered I liked it. So I decided to buy it again for my kit. This still is one of the best foundations I have ever used! You can mix an match to get any color needed, it wears on the face like a second skin and you can make it any consistency by thinning it out or using as is. My favorite way to use it is by mixing it with a moisturizer. Glides on beautifully. On areas that need a little more coverage, I will spot correct with the full coverage consistency. It's not extremely matte... But it's not really dewy either. In my opinion, it's just right.

Really loved this product! Great coverage and looks like skin!

I love this product! There's a color for all skin type and since it's a foundation/concealer pallette, I don't need to but different products that'll take up space in my kit.

This foundation gives a flawless coverage! Very creamy and blend able ,you can also use as a concealer which means you don't need to buy a separate concealer it's colours are highly pigmented.thank you crc for your excilent customer service ,I recieved my order very fast.

wow! Just wow!!! I have always heard great reviews about this product and I had always tried to compare it to its predecessors But this is just amazing. The product it self is amazing, super pigment and little goes a long way. With one palette you can do foundation, concealor, and contouring. It's prefect for a traveling artist since the colors are versitle (you will never not have someone's shade)

I never go back to liquid foundation. I have dry skin with large pores and getting "older". Nightmare to find a foundation which covers well and looks natural....bur here it is. My holy grail !!!
Posted by Unknown on Feb 7th 2015
I've used sooo many dif. brands of makeup and this is my favorite so far....I have bought 3 palettes so far and working on my order for the 1oz containers of my fav. shades...they blend beautifully....especially with moist sponge/blender..I am also going to try out the thinner along with it this time around but I've been fine without it...just been using the RCMA moisturizer prior to makeup application and it just feels amazing!!!..and an amazing product to have as a MUA because of all the shades that you can create with these palletes!! JUST IN LOVE!!!

It's got a very different formulation. Trying to figure out the best way to use this. It's very pigmented, and easy to blend. Definitely have to warm it up with your fingers. Best bet is to YouTube a tutorial on how others have used it.

Few months ago I bought from CRC these 2 palettes from RCMA, #10 and #11. I waited to review them because I wanted to have tested them and used them on different people that had different skin color, different undertone, that were in different age range and with several skin type and or issues (acne, oily skin, birthmarks etc.)
This is now my Holy Grail foundation. I love it and it is worth EVERY penny. It has worked on every clients I used it on, on myself and on several friends. It takes very little to do a face. I use a spatula to take the color or few colors to match my client and on a palette I mix the product and apply it after. It needs to be warmed up before going on the skin IMO. It's the best way. I have been using primer on some occasion but it's not necessary I believe from experience.
There has been no client I couldn't color match and the best is that having so many shades in a palette (imagine with both), I can do anyone's face. It can be used as a corrector and concealer and to contour and highlight also. It can be very light for someone who needs light coverage, medium or full. It's a versatile product and the reason you need so little is because it contains 50% pigment (when most foundation, high-end or else are in the range of 18-35% of pigment) so you get an awesome professional product that can be used not only by makeup artist but also by makeup lover.
As a professional makeup-artist with several years of experience I can tell you it's the best foundation I have ever owned. It was recommended to me because I wasn't sure which brand to get and I am thankful that I trusted the recommendation and if I wanted, I could carry only these 2 palettes for foundation, corrector, concealer, contour and even bronzer. It's that amazing.
Some people hesitate because they see the price as high (I'm in Canada so it was 85$ plus taxes for each palette) but not only have I used it on every client since I bought it few months ago but I haven't use much because of the amazing pigmentation. My clients love it and love the way their skin looks because even full coverage still allows your skin to show, you don't look like you are wearing a mask like other foundation do.
These 2 palettes are in my ZUCA and when I am done with them, I will purchase the RCMA large palettes. But to start, I'm happy I got these sampler palettes and they contain tons of product.
The coverage lasts ALL day and as a makeup artist, I couldn't work without these palette. They are my #1 product and it makes the skin look flawless without looking like you are wearing makeup. Just a flawless finish that makes every face look at it's best.
THANKS CRC for the recommendation, I can't say enough good things about RCMA's foundation.

Typical guy who knows nothing about beauty products, other than the endless list that he is given to look at and buy by his step daughter. Great service by CRC, well sent. Step daughter so happy with product that I ordered the second sampler for Christmas. Product so good that step daughter even was able to make her mother look good with this 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
Posted by Ana on Aug 25th 2014
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!
Posted by Unknown on Jul 13th 2014
I am a new artist and I do a lot of photoshoots and fashion shows and this pallet is perfect.
Great color variety
Posted by Cheryl B on Jul 10th 2014
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.
Posted by Karen P. on Jun 2nd 2014
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
Posted by Unknown on May 20th 2014
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).
Posted by Shelly on May 18th 2014
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.
Posted by Brenda on Apr 16th 2014
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.
