YAY for british friends!

if you ever do invest in some expensive straighteners, for the LOVEEE of god, don't get chi's. i noticed that they were raved about over there, so i bought a pair for my house on that side of the pond (seeing as i'm sick of lugging my straighteneres back and forth) i paid something like $80 for them at one of those discount outlets that also have CCO's.

now, i don't know if it's because the electric currents are different out there or if the water isn't as kind to my hair as english water (i don't think we have floride in our water, unlike florida) but they were rubbish! yes they straighten things out, but not to the poker straight standards of my GHD's. maybe i'm just being fussy and having a moan and maybe it IS because of the water over there and the fact that my hair is just not use to it. but when i spend $80 on a hair tool, i expect to atleast be happy with the end result. needless to say, i didn't return it, but i would have if i could of been bothered.

i can't waitttt to try studio scuplt out. i'm fed up of my current foundation and need something newww.. and a new concealer for that matter. i don't think nw20 is cuttin' it for me anymore, it seems too light under my eyes, but then i tried nw25 and that was too orange/dark. :( boo

yeah, i have been lusting after a ghd for a long time now. i have heard a lot of people complain about chi's and i know that ghd is the best in the market.. i want the ghd iv dark styler or the hot pink one :D they're just so expensive...

you might want to try an nc just to see if it can get to that in-between color you're at now. but i definitely recommend studio sculpt. make sure to ask the ma to explain to you how to apply it - you need the TINIEST bit for your entire face, and it's a bit hard to get used to at first.. but it looks awesome. i use mineralize skinfinish natural over it (like i do with studio fix fluid) and it's beeeeautiful
