Cook Up the Perfect Storm This Spring with Estee Lauder Insatiable Pure Color Nail Lacquer!

Estee Lauder Insatiable

When I first saw Estee Lauder‘s nail polish offering for spring, Insatiable Pure Color Nail Lacquer, I thought it would no doubt be one of the pastels you see around this time of the year. Not being the biggest pastel person, I didn’t pay too much attention. The moment I took Insatiableย (RRP in Belgium: 21,72 euros) out of the box however, I realized it’s much more delicious than a regular pastel!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer comes in hefty and luxurious packaging. I normally don’t like too much chunk, but something about it reminds me of an ice cube and that comes with many positive associations (think summer cocktails and all that good stuff)! The brush is on the thinner side, so it takes a little longer to paint my nails but not by much.

Estee Lauder Insatiable label

Insatiable is a stormy and moody darkened lavender. It reminds me of a foreboding version of OPI’s Parlez-Vous OPI from years ago. The consistency is very easy to work with. The first coat leans a bit sheer, but with a second coat you can really see the depth of the color as well as getting opaque coverage.

Here is the swatch:

As usual, I try to show nail polishes next to my face so you get an idea about the real effect:

Bottom line: Estee Lauder Insatiable Pure Color Nail Lacquer offers a good twist of pastels that we usually see this season. The quality is excellent, and I think this shade will wear well in autumn and winter as well!

What’s your take on Estee Lauder Insatiable? Is it something you might wear?

    Ohhhh! I REALLY like this a lot! It’s a great moody purple! Not too dark, not too light-just right! I think I will have to get this!

    • Sunny

      Goooo Tracy! It’s a very grown-up pastel!

  • Tigerlily

    Gorgeous and sooo classy against your skin tone! I hope I can pull it off half as well as you do… And thanks for the ‘zoomed out’ shots indeed, they’re just as useful as the close-up ones IMO!

    • Sunny

      Thanks so much, girl! I’m sure you can! I have come to realize that you can pull off anything you want! I personally find zoomed-out shots very helpful. That’s why I try to include them :)

  • Angela @ The Unprofessional Beauty Blog

    Can I please say that this color is lovely. I’m totally into purple – purple makeup, nails, and everything else. This is a beautiful shade and just the right one for me.

    • Sunny

      So glad to hear that, Angela! You should grab it before it’s gone. I am pretty sure it’s limited edition!

  • beauties

    perfectly combined with your make-up and outfit :)

    • Sunny

      Thanks girl!

  • Caise

    I love this shade!

    • Sunny

      Do check it out, Caise! The formula is spot-on!

  • Teri

    I love the shade even more on you! It’s really pretty and quite unique of what I have ^^

    • Sunny

      Thanks Teri! I don’t own anything remotely similar either!

  • Nic @Strawbry_Blonde

    This is my favourite of the new collection – love it! Your necklace is beautiful too!


    • Sunny

      Thanks Nic! I’m pretty much a one-necklace woman, and this is the necklace I received for my birthday almost 2 years ago (now that’s a lot of loyalty LOL)!

  • stรฉ

    It looks a lot different on the nails than I expected. I prefer lighter lilac shades. Love the lipstick you’re wearing <3

    • Sunny

      Thanks Ste! It’s really strange, but to my eyes the shade looks darker in the bottle, but in most pictures I’ve seen online it just seems lighter! I wonder if it’s the bottle!

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Oh wow, it looks so much darker than you’d expect! Not sure if I like it because it surprised me or because of the color itself, but either way, I do! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Sunny

      Haha that’s good to know! I remember seeing this on Temptalia and I was really surprised too. Maybe the shape of the bottle prevents the shade from showing up true-to-color in pics? I wonder.

  • Dorien (Inmyprettyshoes)

    It looks really different than I expected! Much darker! I like it on your nails.

    • Sunny

      Yup it actually looks darker in the bottle in real life too, but for some reason the color wouldn’t show up true-to-life in photos! I’ve seen other bloggers’ photos and they’re more or less the same. Maybe it’s the bottle? But anyways, in real life it’s darker!

  • Marijke

    Such a pretty color!

    • Sunny

      Hey Marike, I agree! It’s a bit more special than what we see in spring!

  • Liz

    Oh, crap, I shouldn’t have looked. I love this shade!

    I have the stupidest reason for not collecting Estee Lauder nail polish. I find that the bottles are really bulky and don’t store well with the rest of my collection. Ummm… yeah. LOL

    • Sunny

      LOL sorry Liz! I throw all the boxes away except for the boxes for nail polishes. I just find it easier to store them that way. Otherwise you have the bigger bottles, the smaller bottles, the round bottles and all that… Yeah I’m a little OCD too!

  • Taylor

    Ooh beautiful! It’s not as pastel as I thought it would, love it! And that lipstick!

    • Sunny

      Hey Taylor, I think that’s exactly why I love it! I’ve got more corals coming up. You’ll be SO tired of seeing corals in NO time ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Lorraine

    I am so glad I ordered Insatiable! It is online at Estee Lauder only, so I didn’t get to swatch in store before purchasing. It is every bit as gorgeous as your swatch. and I love how you paired with a coral lip! Estee has some lovely shades out lately.

    • Sunny

      Oh yay, I’m so glad to hear you like it, Lorraine! Estee Lauder has been rebranding rather successfully. I am already jumping up and down for their summer collection!

  • Procrastinator

    RIGHT UP MY ALLEY. Saw the photo on my blog reader and I just knew. You can’t even really see the colour because the photo is so small, but I was just like, …something awaits me here. GORGEOUS.

    • Sunny

      Haha yeah it’s so nice to see Insatiable among a see of baby pastels!

  • Redhotjillypeppers

    Great colour ! I think it’s a lot more wearable than pastel lavender.

    • Sunny

      I agree. It might be a skin tone thing but pastel lavender doesn’t work well for my skin tone!

  • Isabelle

    This one is just sooo perfect right?! Wearing it now!! :)

    • Sunny

      It’s definitely very special!

  • Christine@BrazenBeauty

    I just went on a MASSIVE hunt for this but can’t find it in the stores :( Does anyone know if this is called something else in the States? Or is it really online only as Lorraine commented above?

    • Sunny

      Awww I’m so sorry to hear that! The collection has been available in the States for quite a while though. Maybe it’s sold out in certain stores? Do let me know if you can’t find it. I’m more than willing to get a bottle and send it your way!
