We've all been there. We've applied foundation, popped some powder on top, and a couple of hours later - you're orange. Or pure, ghostly white. Mare. This also usually happens to me in situations where I have no opportunity to sort it out - cue spending the whole day as a ghost/oompa loompa. Disaster.
I have, in the past, been pretty quick to blame my liquid foundation for this - but having tried a LOT of powder/liquid combinations in my life, it seems to be that the powder (or just the combination of the two) is often what's at fault.
Enter RCMA's rather hyped-up No Color Powder. It is, on the tin, a pretty basic sounding setting powder.. but don't be fooled by its unassuming, plain packaging. This stuff is dynamite.

Where I find this really comes in to its own, is around the under eye area. This genuinely doesn't crease, sit in lines, or make the skin look remotely dry. I apply this with a dry sponge for baking purposes, or just a sweep over the face with a standard powder brush. I find it to apply and set makeup beautifully. I am seriously oily, and this is one of the few powders which genuinely offers a degree of oil control.
The bad bit? The packaging. You will undoubtedly waste a lot of product, no matter what you do - which is a real shame when it's this good!
If you're in to baking to set your under eye area, or just genuinely want a bit of oil control from your powder - give RCMA a go. It's inexpensive compared to most powders on the market, if a little tricky to get hold of - I buy mine from Love Makeup.
