Vegan and cruelty-free RCMA Color Process Foundation is one of my favorite foundations ever. Made in in small batches for quality control, RCMA is producing world class foundation and not enough people are using it. The color process foundations are 50% pigment, compared to mainstream liquids that are usually 18% - 23% and theatrical foundations that are 30%-35% pigment. The RCMA is unparalleled in coverage, it will cover any and everything you could possibly imagine.
RCMA foundations contain much lower percentage of temperature-sensitive materials (oils and Waxes) and therefore a higher percentage of non-temperature-sensitive materials (dry pigment). So these products will produce a make-up application that will last longer and require less touch ups during the day then commercial, consumer grade foundations. For allergic reasons RCMA foundations contain no perfumes, animal extracts, mineral oils or lanolin.
I love the RCMA foundation, its the lightest feeling foundation I have used and yet it carries the most coverage in the smallest amount needed to be applied. RCMA has a massive color selection and they really understand the nuances of skin tones, they provide 12 different color series.
RCMA Shinto Series Description
The SH series has yellow to greenish undertones.
SH-1 to SH-4 have ochre undertones, rising in very small increments of color depth .
SH-5 to Sh-8 increasingly deepening tan/yellow tones for men (Personally not understanding the 'for men' part)
Below is a before and after of a single layer of the RCMA Color Process foundation in shade Shinto III which I purchased the past fall and it matches perfectly,but it is summer now so I could probably drop down a shade. Purchase the RCMA HERE
The RCMA blends seamlessly on the skin. I think a lot of people may be put off on the RCMA because they are unsure on how to apply it. For me I apply the foundation using my fingers or a buffing brush roughly on my forehead, cheeks, chin and nose. To blend it in and spread it around I like to use a beauty blender and I start with the area I first applied as it will have melted more from the warmth of my face. You can also stick with the buffing brush if thats your preference. I do wear this over my Hylamide HA Blur which I reviewed HERE.
