MAC Pure Zen Lipstick Review MAC Pure Zen Lipstick is part of the Cremesheen range, that’s made up of colours that are creamy, glossy and semi-opaque. Pure Zen is a pretty peachy pink nude shade that beautifully subtle on the lips.

MAC describe Pure Zen as a ‘frosted warm nude’, we think it definitely has peach and pink undertones, which make it a pretty shade and ensure that this isn’t too ‘concealer lips’ when you apply.

The Cremesheen formula applies easily and glides onto the lips, you might find that it clings to dry patches on the lips slightly, so make sure you buff away any dry skin on the lips with an exfoliator or old toothbrush.
