Editor's Review

Not Basic Black is a medium-dark, taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a barely-there satin shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation with a firmer press, which made it harder to work with overall. I wish this one would have blended out more easily. On me, it showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear. theBalm #15 (P, $6.50) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Ashbury (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Grunge (DC, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Hourglass Atmosphere #5 (PiP, ) is darker (90% similar). MAC Big White Lie (LE, ) is darker (90% similar).
