Estée Lauder ~ Purple Passion

Posted on: January 23, 2013

Estée Lauder Purple Passion is a gorgeous cream finish polish that looks stunning, if you asked me. I love a good cream finish polish. I bought this polish as part of a 4 piece mini set offered by Estée Lauder during the holidays. I hope it is something they continue to do, with different colors of course, as I will continue to buy these little bottles.

Estée Lauder Smashed has been named polish of the year by several fashion magazines for 2012. Estée Lauder has come to the fore front of nail lacquer and 2012 was her year.

Estée Lauder Black Turquoise was another strong showing for this past year. This is one of my favorite polishes this year and I have worn it a lot. It looks darker on the nail than in the bottle but when the light catches it just right, magic happens. It is a gorgeous cream finish.


I love their packaging, they look like little ice cubes popped full of color. The bottles are ‘stable’ the brushes are perfect, all in all a great luxurious polish. Which when you pay $18-20 per bottle it’s exactly what you want. Estée Lauder delivers on all fronts. Even the little mini bottles look like small ice cubes. I got 4 colors, they came in this adorable side zipped bag for around $30? I really don’t remember how much they were, I just knew I wanted them! Look how great they are on my nails, wouldn’t you?


These are the minis I have in my collection, the purple passion I’m wearing, porcelain and pure red. In the larger sizes I have the Smashed and Black Turquoise mentioned above and Rosa Rosa Rosa, another red.

I’ve seen pictures of the spring 2013 line and they are stunning. I don’t believe my pocketbook will allow me any more purchases of Estée Lauder polish, but it is a beautiful product. I highly recommend it and if you can buy a bottle or two 😍 I know you won’t be disappointed.

The only problem I found with the mini bottles is the brush. The brush is fine as far a big enough to cover your nail okay, but the topper is very hard to hold onto. I had the hardest time not dropping the brush, and I did drop it several times. This manicure took forever because of that. I wish they would add some type of a ribbon, or something one could get a grip on. That is my only complaint, as you all know I do not like negative reviews or complaining, but I did want to point this defect out for you.


(The above 2 photos taken from the Estée Lauder website. Above are the new spring colors and a line f nudes soon to be released. You can find Estée Lauder nail polish here. I do not know the release date of the nudes but the spring colors are set to launch March 1st. So pretty! Let me know if you pick any of these new colors up. I promise I won’t be too jealousy,😍. You can also find a full range of Estée Lauder nail polish and make up at the happiest place on earth, Nordstrom
(this picture was taken from the Nordstrom website) you can still buy this set for $27.50, and right now Estée Lauder is offering a free gift with purchase. You can find this great little bag here.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.

I love the Estee Lauder you sent me for my bday, it’s sooo nice! Can’t wait for summer to wear it more. I know it sounds silly but when the light hits it’s the prettiest. About spring colors they are exactly the kind of colors I like but I’m already sick of them. All the brands are releasing the same exact colors…


It sure seems that way doesn’t it? Oh well, that will be good for the pocketbook! 😍. Less polish I want, the less I spend!

They look beautiful as usual.Wrap a small elastic band around the top to give you some grip when using this polish, that might solve the problem?


You make me want pick up one of these pretty polishes. The next time I go to the “Big City” I’ll stop at Nordstrom. I’d love to choose the color in person. I don’t have any higher end nail polishes so this could be the start of a new buying trend for me. In the mean time I am ordering the $27.00 set you included in today’s post.


Thank you Linda, I will try that! It just needs a little something like that and I bet it will work. Thanks again! — Judi


Oh good! I honestly think you will love it. You’ll be hooked on Estée Lauder polish, it is such a great quality. Let me know how you like it after you receive. I wonder what will be your first color to use?

Thank you so much for your review on Estee’ Lauder polish. I have not tried any of there lacquers yet but after reading your review I think I would try the mini bottles. They are very cute and I really like the bold colors.


Estée Lauder is a great quality polish and they have stepped up their color choices in the last couple of years. I still have in the purple one and it is 4 days later, no sign of wear at all. Not even tip wear. I want to change my polish but this is so pretty and still looks like a brand new manicure so I guess I will leave it on for another day or so.
Thanks for commenting.

I love Estee Lauder, they always have quality products and exquisite packaging.


Yes, they do. I can’t get over how long this polish lasted, it looked beautiful, like a new manicure after 5 days. I was just reading they hired a new guy just for their polish division and he is the one responsible for all the colors and the great formula. I can’t remember his name but I def want to read more about him.
Thanks for the comment.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
