RCMA NO COLOR POWDER | HONEST REVIEW

Hello Lovely People!

I'm back for another review! This time round i'm sharing with you an amazing product that i found through the youtube-mosphere. lol. A lot of youtubers such as Tati and Kathleen had raved about this before. After being psycho-ed by them, i decided to try it myself too.


As you can read from the title (obviously), its the RCMA No Colour Powder! Said to be similar to the pricey Laura Mercier's translucent powder (which i also have), it really does what it's said. Actually i find the RCMA powder to be slightly better than LM's translucent powder.

Ok hold on let me introduce what's the No Color Powder about - Set your makeup like the pros with this cult-classic invisible setting powder. Used on set by Hollywood makeup artists for years, RCMA No Color Powder sweeps seamlessly over skin, locking in a soft-focus finish that stays comfortably matte all day.

What it does: 
  • Keep your makeup fresh and flawless for hours with no caking, creasing, ashiness, or breakthrough shine
  • Pigment-free formula blends smoothly over all skin tones and makeup products without altering color or texture
  • Blurs fine lines, pores, and imperfections with a silky, ultra-fine blend of talc and silica

And basically the above described is what i want to say. haha. After i put on a little foundation + concealer, i set it with no color powder. It immediately sort of blurs my imperfection and my skin looks like baby skin. I'm so fking serious about this. I also tried using this powder straight away without putting on foundation. Although the result is not as perfect as with a foundation, but it really hides my imperfections. 

However, just a word of reminder: My skin has improved a lot since the last breakout. No red and big pimples and no deep scars. (read my acne journey here) Overall, my skin is pretty smooth. Thus the powder can hide my little imperfections perfectly. 

What are my imperfections? 
Before i put on no color powder, i have: 
- uneven skin tone
- slightly shine + oil face 
- slight yellowish dull dark face 

After i put on no color powder, i have: 
- more even skin tone 
- kind of matifies my skin but feel leaving my face non-cakey 
- becomes fairer and smoother 

It's like magic la. I'm not sure if i'm exaggerating here or not but i'm very confident that this is a good product overall. Plus, it is so affordable!!! 

My face doesn't go cakey nor does it makes my skin dry or whatsoever. It sits on my face very nicely. 

Erm hmm, word of reminder again: Due to me applying face oil every day, it has most probably help my skin to be smoother & allows makeup products to sit on it much better + longer without going cakey. A makeup artist was putting on foundation on my skin and she commented that the product is so easy to blend on my face. 'haha cause my face is smooth mah :D.' 

Oh! And i don't cake up my face with powder (i.e. i don't bake my face). I pour about 1 dollar coin size of powder out to my balm, gently dap it with a kabuki brush and gently distribute on my face. 

If you are also looking for a finishing powder, i highly recommend you to try this product. It is affordable and it has a lot of good reviews too. Thus, no harm trying (before you decide to burn your pocket with a Laura Mercier Translucent Powder).
