I purchased this at my local CCO on a whim because I don't have a color like it in my collection. This is a peachy nude that leans pink, so it doesn't wash me out. It manages to tone down my very pigmented lips and brighten my face at the same time. I like this color and wear it almost every day. I add pink gloss under or over it depending on my blush color for the day. I recommend this color. I think this is a nude that will work for every skin tone.

I am obsessed with Pure Zen Cremesheen from MAC! I have light olive skin, and I never thought this sort of color would look good on me. I top it with a light, shimmery lipgloss and I get so many compliments -- even from my daughter! I gave it a 4 for packaging (standard MAC) only compared with packaging from YSL, which I think you're paying double for the luxe package. It makes me glow... wow!

Maybe it's just that me and nude lips don't go well together, but I don't really like this lipstick. The texture is typical of MAC nudes in my experience - it's sort of slippery, but not necessarily moisturizing, and it settles in lines and looks milky. Just not for me.

This is my holy-grail nude lipstick! It's been a 5+ years journey to find the perfect nude lipstick for my medium olive-toned complexion. It is a perfect combination of peach and pink, making it a healthy type of "nude". It is a cremesheen finish which is awesome because I find that most nude lippies are matte/semi-matte. On my medium-pigmented lips, Pure Zen looks exactly like the lipstick version of Chelsea Girls lip lacquer from Nars. Both are gorgeous pinky nudes.

So glad this lippy is perm! This is definitely a MLBB color on my NC35 complexion. It is the perfect nude without being too nude (if that makes sense). The cremesheen+pearl formula is heavenly. On me it appears to be a peachy beige with a touch of pink and shows a multidimensional finish. I am guessing it's due to the pearl added to the formula. Great pigmentation and covers my very pigmented lips. It wears like a lustre but feels like a cremesheen, but I am in love with the color so I don't mind reapplying. 2n lipglass is very similar in color so I like to top it off with that for more pigmentation and shine. One of my favorite MAC lippy purchases lately! Definite rebuy!

I received this in a swap and am so glad that I did! It is the perfect color for me. I found it less drying than my other MAC lipsticks, after applying this one I don't even need a gloss over top. It is the perfect peachy pink nude and I will definitely be repurchasing this when it runs out. My new HG!!

Love this lipstick it's a cremesheen and I love cremesheen's cause they are moisturizing and leave a glossy look on the lips. Nice nude pinky peachy colour doesn't wash me out. I'm NC 35 for reference.

Wow, I am newly obsessed with this lipstick. I love nude lipsticks but hate when they have a matte finish. This is a cremesheen which is a perfect texture for the nude lip look. It's not too lite and not brown at all, more slightly pink... So it doesn't give me a corpse look like some nudes do. I also love that I don't have to even look in the mirror to apply, it's very smooth and forgiving of any dryness on your lips.

I bought this from the marylin Monroe collection and I absolutely love it. It's a great nude! I have olive skin and it looks great. The only issue I have is I have really bad chapped lips and the formula isn't very moisturizing. I always apply a lip balm prior to putting this on.

The best nude lipstick i've found for my fair/medium warm toned skin and pigmented lips. Most nudes make me look a little dead, especially cool toned nudes but this actually makes me look brighter. Most likely due to the peachy pink undertones. Its pinker than Shygirl (more peach based) which is the only other nude lipstick ive found at mac that suits me. Looks stunning with smokey eyes and with a low key day time look. My absolute favorite lipstick of the moment. I also bought Shanghai spice, Coral bliss and Sunny seoul from the Creamsheen + pearl collection and i love them all.
