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.

Color, it would seem, is everywhere this season.
Pantone introduced Radiant Orchid as the color of the year; Chanel’s spring “Notes du Printemps” collection features larger-than-life blush colors like Chamade (a coal-hot pink); and now the NARS spring 2014 color collection, High Seize, is no wallflower.
NARS of course, is no stranger to color. It regularly creates quality makeup that rivals its competition, and I must say that over the years I have come to rely on NARS as my makeup of choice, especially when it comes to nail lacquer (one brush stroke and you’ll be an addict too). The spring 2014 collection contains opulent and texturized colors like gold lamé, as well as bright pops o

Radiant orchid may be the color of 2014, but Chanel is seeing spring as a sea of pastels, electric pinks, purples, and intense reds. In essence, this is a collection of lively colors so don’t be abashed to put your colorful face forward.
The result, even with a limited set of new products (three) is polished, and a bit more edgy than Chanel’s 2013 spring look, which was very pink and feminine with soft eyes and a bold pink lip. In 2014, Chanel wants you to be quite fiery, with a Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color in Lighthearted Red, which boasts hint of pink ($38).
