Editor's Review

Hard Currency is a medium-dark gray-leaning taupe with cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, just a touch dusty, but it was blendable, didn't sheer out too readily, and didn't look dry or powdery on the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me. MAC Copperplate (DC, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Bedrock (DC, $6.00) is cooler (95% similar). KVD Beauty Smoke (Base) (PiP, ) is cooler (95% similar). theBalm #25 (P, $6.50) is warmer (95% similar). Clinique Portobello (PiP, $15.00) is warmer (95% similar).
