This has bothered me for a while and the recent makeup additions brought it to my attention again. The game's darker skintones (and some of the lightest ones too) have been disappointing since the beginning. Most of them are gray and ashy-looking and I exclusively use CC skintones for this reason. The very lightest skintones also tend to look very yellow. There's not that much base game makeup that looks good on a darker-skinned sim; the MAC blushes only have two or three shades that work, the rest are basically invisible. I didn't notice much difference with the extra skin tones that were patched in either. It's disappointing that EA acts focused on diversifying the game but this issue still hasn't been fixed.
