Basic non-basic editor for 4K

I am looking for recommendations for an editor for 4K clips.

On one hand it needs to do very basic things: import/export 4K, work on one clip at a time, trim. Cropping, tilting, fast forward, slow motion, combining clips, transitions, etc would be nice but not required.

On the other hand I need to do color (temp/tint) and exposure (exposure, contrast, curves) adjustments while looking at the histogram.

I got a hang of using Lightroom in that purpose, it is actually a fairly quick and efficient workflow for what I need. No timeline, no ingestion, no library, no project file that would contain a copy of the clip. The problem is that Lightroom does not export 4K, only FHD.

I looked at Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro, both will do what I want, but they looked to be an overkill and require climbing a steep learning curve. Premiere Elements does not have histograms.

I am on a Mac and I hate iMovie.

Any recommendations? Free is not a per-requisite, but a trial period before paying is.
