RCMA No Colour Powder Review

This is probably the most excited I have ever been to write a blog post and that is because I am so passionate about this product. The RCMA No Colour Setting Powder has been a game changer for me. Years ago I saw this and bought it because I thought it was perfect to set my stage makeup in my Ballet years. Back then I wasn’t really into makeup as much so I didn’t really appreciate it.

It was only a few weeks ago I bought this RCMA No Colour Powder online and I have been obsessed with it ever since I received it. I have tried so many translucent powders in the search for the perfect one and I now feel like I have achieved it. Well, that is until I try something else and fall in love with that one, but at the moment, this is my ride or die face powder.

First, let’s talk about the amount of product that you get. This tube is huge and you get a staggering 3oz which roughly turns into about 90g. That is a huge amount for a face powder, other powders such as the Laura Mericer Setting Powder and the MAC Set Powder you only get 30g. I can see this lasting me forever!

Now, this is the thing that I only think is a disappointment about the product. The way the product is dispensed. This has a snap open lid so you can shake the powder out. This is really messy and you waste so much product. I tried to use it by unscrewing the whole top and trying that way, again I just felt like I was wasting so much powder. I now use it by dispensing it into an old MAC Set Powder tub and using it that way.

RCMA No Colour Powder when it is in the tube looks quite thick and heavy but when you have this on your brush and you tap the excess off it glides onto the skin so silky soft. It is such a finely milled powder and it makes your cheeks feel like a baby’s bum. No other powder I have used comes close to this in the consistency and texture.

Another amazing thing about this powder is the coverage. I know that may sound silly for a translucent powder but this RCMA No Colour powder really is 100% transparent. The Laura Mercier powder I find has a beige tint to it which can change the colour of your makeup and when I have used other powders such as the No7 Translucent Powder they can have pink undertones, which can give me a red cast throughout the day. RCMA has absolutely zero colour to it, as the name suggests, but it smooths out the skin and makes you look completely airbrushed!

Now for the overall packaging. The packaging is really cheap. The plastic tube is flimsy and can be easily squeezed, which when traveling could result in a very big mess. Like I said the shaker style top is really messy and quite wasteful.

The last and in no means least important factor is the price. This powder was only £10.95. I have even seen people get it for cheaper which is crazy. My Laura Mercier Powder set me back £32 I think and my No7 Translucent Powder was £14. The RCMA No Colour in my opinion is worlds apart from this, the quality is so much higher and for the amount and price you would be insane to want anything else!

With the low price and the staggering amount of product that you get this is the perfect powder for baking your face. I used to feel guilty baking underneath my eyes with my Laura Mercier and wiping it away and seeing my money literally falling to the floor. But with this powder I can load my face up and not feel bad at all, because this is bomb!

Smoothing on the skin and it blurs out imperfections
Incredibly cheap, I would be willing to pay loads more for this because it outstanding
You get nearly 90g of product, that will keep you going forever!

Packaging is really wasteful and makes me get it everywhere!

That is, it for my review on this powder. If you have tried it yourself I would love to hear from you in the comments or on email, or if you want more information, just let me know!



  1. The powder sounds amazing especially for the price! It's just a shame about the packaging, it would be a lot more convient if it was in a pot like powders usually are!

    1. But for the price, I really don't think that the packaging is that much of a big deal!

  2. I keep hearing such amazing things about this :) I suppose the packaging is a small price to pay for a great powder at a low price!
