When one thinks of a ballerina, you can’t avoid pink, or so we believed.

Lancôme’s spring 2014 collection, French Ballerine, is more about orchid and lilac and a deep, nontraditional ballet pin. It is also about rose tones, and an ode to innocence and Lancôme’s latest ambassador, Lily Collins (actress for The Blind Side, Abduction, and Mirror Mirror). Two simple words to describe Ms. Collins would be delicate and feminine.

Lancôme definitely picked a good role model for the French Ballerine collection, and the entire color palette is darkly rosy, with fresh hints of lilac and peony.

Gloss in Love lip gloss ($27) comes in four shades: orange-Julius-like Glittermania;  pale almost moon-like Pink Posh; Rose Oscar; and neon-like Under the Spotlight. Rouge in Love lipstick ($28.50) comes in porcelain-peach Peche Passion; lilac-hued Peony Pucker; Rosy Rouge; and Violet Valentine, which resembles more of a mauve pink than a violet.

There is also a five-pan eyeshadow palette ($50), which has a distinctly radiant orchid-like shade in its Romeo and Violette version (the other earthy one is called Dancing Rose). Top the collection off with Kohl in Love eyeliner ($26) in Twirling Purple and Final Bow Brown. Nail lacquers in Jolie Rosalie, Rose Satin, and Lilac Love are uber elegant additions to the collection, and so very ballet-esque in their muted tones (no ballerina worth her salt would flash neon enhanced digits).

This is a very feminine collection, with just the right amount of edgy color to make it modern and interesting. It’s available now in stores and online.
