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.

I picked up Pure Zen from the Cremesheen + Pearl collection. It is such a beautiful color!! I love pink and peach nudes and tans, like Hue, Myth, Shy Girl, and Jubilee and Pure Zen definitely is along those lines. It is:
-Pinker and creamier than Myth
-Slightly pinker and less matte than Hue
-Not as peach as Shy Girl
-Not as brown as Jubilee
Basically, having all these colors in my collection already I still felt like I didn't have anything already like it. When I'm lighter toned, like NC25 I love Hue, but right now if I put it on I feel like it's too pale. Pure Zen is perfect; I love the color, texture, and feel. Looks great on my NC30-35 skintone.
