My first ever loose powder was Ben Nye Banana Powder. It is one of the most popular makeup items globally and makeup artists swear by it But due to its yellow undertones it does look a bit ghostly in flash photography. I saw people talking about RCMA No Color Powder and thought of picking it. The brand isn’t available in India but you can buy it from websites like beauty bay or through instagram sellers.
RCMA Loose Powders are a staple in the industry and should be a part of every pro makeup artist’s kit. RCMA Powder will keep your foundations set and dry without “caking.” Our No Color Powder can be used for all powdering purposes. Since it has no filler or pigment it will not alter the color of foundation bases.
The powder comes in a very basic cylindrical shaped plastic bottle with a flip top cap. The cap has small holes to dispense the powder which i know isn’t the most spill-proof packaging. I seal all the holes except one and that helps a lot.
Shade – Now as the name suggests RCMA No Color Powder is color less on skin. In the bottle it looks stark white and does create a lot of doubts. But once you apply and blend it disappears into the skin.
Texture & Formula – The formula is transparent and works really well for setting under eye makeup. I use a makeup sponge to press the powder on to the desired area and sweep it off after a few seconds. For me less is more because such setting powders can be a bit drying since their primary objective it to set the makeup. If you use a cream concealer that tends to crease and settle in fine lines then using RCMA No Color Powder would definitely help.
In flash photography it doesn’t show white and looks great. For me the only downside is the drying factor, If I bake the under eye area with too much product, it leaves me with dry / wrinkly skin which of course doesn’t look great !
Now you can also use it set entire face but I don’t like using white / translucent powders to set my makeup. I like the product and the fact that you get a lot of powder at affordable price. Being a translucent “No Color” powder it works on all skin tones.
If you are looking for a good setting powder then do try RCMA No Color Powder . It is translucent and does’t give flash back in photos. The powder sets the area perfectly and does’t let the base makeup crease or move. But because of my skin type which is dry I prefer Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder more.
