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.

This is a beautiful peachy-nude from the new Cremesheen + Pearl collection. I was looking for a lipstick that would suit my yellow undertones and pigmented lips. The MAC salesperson recommended this, so I tried it on and it looked amazing! On my lips, its a pink nude colour with peachy undertones. It tones down the pigmentation in my lips a bit and looks great with a lipgloss on top. Very pretty and I love the formula, very mosturizing with a pearly finish! I hope they add this colour to their permanent collection because its so versatile and so stunning! I would definitely repurchase!

A very nice color - peachy pink that instantly brightens your face. I'd call it a cute color :)
It set a bit in the lines and makes my lips feel bit dry, but my lips are really dehydrated most of the time. So for someone with normal lips shouldn't be a problem wearing it.
With all the mentioned above, I would repurchase for it is such a beautiful color.

Update: it sets in your wrinkles a bit which is very annoying. Bit drying out too, somewhat chalky after some time.

I don't wear lipstick often, it's not "me"... but I bought this on a whim and I'm really impressed! It's probably one of the best nude shades I've ever stumbled upon. It's not pale and deathly-looking on me like Myth, or too pale like Creme d' Nude. It very subtly lightens my natural lip color (my natural lips are medium-dark pigmented) and makes them look "sexy!" I love Pure Zen! I just hope it's not a limited edition color (not sure) and I'm able to buy another if I use the whole thing up.
