NuMe In-Vogue Flat Iron Review







Today i'm reviewing the NuMe In Vogue flat iron with titanium plates.
I've read a lot of great reviews on this iron (which is why I decided to go ahead and purchase it) but I have to say…my experience was not the greatest.

Now, I was in need of a new straightener and I always wanted to try a NuMe one because I I had heard good things about them but I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a straightener that I had to order online.

A few weeks ago I was watching a missglamorazzi video on youtube and she was using a NuMe curling wand. She then offered a discount code for anything on the entire site. So I went on the site just to look and I found this straightener. Its normally $179.00. I really wanted it so Craig offered to buy it for me for Christmas. I was so excited we ordered it within minutes. Using the code from Ingrid he only had to pay around $93.00 for it!

It arrived quickly, about a week or so, but I wasn't going to open it until Christmas. Yesterday though we were going to Craig's fathers for thanksgiving dinner and I asked if I could try it out and he said sure!

Now for the review part….

I turned it on and set the temperature. The digital piece on the iron is blue at first and once it heats to where you set it, it turns green. This happened rather quickly which was great. The problem happened once I tried to straighten the first section of my hair. The SECOND I touched any part of my hair the temperature would go down. I mean drop. From 400 degrees to as low as 340. In one swipe! The worst part was, was that my hair is rather thick so I had to go over it at least 4 times and each time the temp went lower and lower.

As if that wasn't bad enough the plates of the iron kept pulling my hair with every swipe! By the time I actually finished my whole head my hair felt so dry, it was extremely tangly even after brushing, and little pieces of my hair kept falling out!

I was so disappointed in this iron I went on the site to look at the refund policy and guess what? Absolutely NO refunds IF you used a coupon code or any sort of discount code. Isn't that great.

They do offer an exchange instead of a refund but to be quite honest I don't even want to waste my time getting another one.

That was my experience with this flat iron. I have read other reviews where people said they loved it. Maybe I just received a defective one.

Thanks for reading!

BYE!
