The strong response to the Storypeople collection - bright hues in the midst of winter - plus the light reflecting off of yet another snowfall inspired this collection. According to the description, “all of the colors posted either twinkle with multiple shades of light, or change color when applied to the skin.”

It's less pigmented than Vampires Tap Dancing from TSS, which it most closely resembles - Salsa could be used to warm up an eye look, to provide a light red base note, or as a lip color. I don't know that it could successfully be used as a cheek color because it is very dark, and has pretty good staying...
