The Sweet Taste of Candy Fixations

8 Mar

The 2011 Stylist Choice Awards were held this past weekend in Chicago, and Candy Fixations took home the Best New Styling Collection! Hard work paid off. If you have not yet heard about this fabulous, candy-inspired line, you have obviously been hiding under a rock, so check out the details here.

TIGI also won the Best Professional Makeup line – congrats to my girl Sydney. So it is only natural to breed these two prize-winning lines to create the Candy Fixations Luxe Lipgloss Collection. Inspired by the decadent scents of the styling line, these five lip treats will leave your lover wanting more.

Not only do you want to lick the applicator clean, but the colors are stunning. These aren’t like typical lip-glosses that barely add color, they actually deposit a gorgeous hue to your lips along with moisture and shine. My personal favorite is Sugar Shock. It smells just like cotton candy, and the red just pops perfectly.

Each Candy Fixation Luxe Lipgloss retails for $19 and can be purchased at your local TIGI salon. To find a salon near you visit TIGI’s website.

Models above are wearing Glaze Haze and Sugar Shock. Enjoy!
