MAC Pure Zen

One of the first things that hit me about leaving my job, was ‘oh no what will I do without the discount?’ Slightly shallow, I know. But to any beauty obsessed person, having discount on high end brands, is like being a kid in a sweet shop. So to treat myself in a part ‘well done for getting a new job’ part ‘let’s make the most of this discount.’ I may of found myself at the MAC counter. I’d been after a new lipstick for a while, as my Shy Girl favourite was practically a cm big. That is when you know you need a new lipstick.

Pure Zen had been on my wish list for a while, and now seemed the perfect time to get it. A peachy/pink nude with a creamsheen finish, it’s perfect for adding a slight bit of colour but still being subtle. It has a creamsheen finish meaning that it’s slightly glossy and not too matte. Although it doesn’t stick around on your lips for that long, I am in love with this lipstick. In my eyes it’s the perfect nude lipstick for me,and I think it’ll be a great lipstick to take me through to Spring. However I would say that Pure Zen, is definitely more suited for tanned skintones. I would steer away from it if you were really pale, as I feel the peachy undertones may not suit pale skin. My sister is quite pale and she picked up Patisserie and that is a lovely nude for paler skins. 

So Pure Zen is my current lips BFF, maybe I should buy a back up few whilst I still have my discount? What’s your favourite MAC lipstick?
