Video Wig Review: Limited Edition by Gabor in Color GL8-10 (Dark Chestnut)

I think somewhere in this video I call the color “dark walnut.” Oops. Who can keep some of these color names straight, anyway? Gabor gets particularly crazy; they have so many numbers and words to describe what are, quite honestly, some of the most boring colors available. Only Estetica might be worse with the poor color choices. Gabor also has these certain colors with a “+” at the end of them, which means something but I don’t know what, and I still don’t know what the “GL” is for either. But then you’ll have something like a “gl” with a “+” at the end too, and it’s amazing to me that after all that secret coding the color is still just “brown.” And at one time they were putting the word “mist” at the end of every color too, for added fun. Someone should tell them that just tacking a bunch of things onto a color description does not make a plain medium blonde more exciting. And my FAVORITE color description Gabor has ever come up with was, “Buttered Toast Mist.” That’s right – just throw the word “mist” in there even though it sounds like some sort of bizarre haunting one might experience inside an abandoned IHOP…moving on.

This wig looks so pretty on the model…on me, not so much.


And notice how in the video I mention several times that the color is not good on me, then I went and ordered a Gabor Appeal in the same damn color. Sigh. It’s all those letters and numbers again…got me confused. I was thinking this was the “GL10-12 Hot Maple Mist +.” Or something.

Anyway here it is – soon to be for sale at an eBay auction near you. But seriously, it’s a very nice wig, just not good on me.

Disclaimers: I bought this item with my own money and no one paid or asked me to do the review. Opinions are my own.

  1. Marey ,I like the cut and style . I agree about the color it makes you look very pale and I can see the hair line and it looks fake. I would suggest a lighter color, like honey blonde or a dark blonde I think you would look much better with that color! I’m just loving those beautiful long white nails you have I want mine hands to look as beautiful as yours darling!

    Much love, XXXXX

    • Yeah, I can’t believe I went and ordered another wig in this damn color! Ugh! But it is a long wig, so maybe that will help. I think it’s the combo of both color AND style (on me, it’s a nice style on the right person) making this a flop. And I wasn’t feeling that hairline either – weird. I think it’s both too dense and too “straight” in shape – it goes straight across my forehead instead of having a curve to it. No one’s hairline does that. Could be fixed if you plucked at it a bit though.

  2. Wow – love your nails, great color and length. Sorry didn’t pay much attention to the wig, too busy following your hand gestures!!

  3. Sorry to say, although it is kind of nice, the front makes it look very wiggy. A couple of shade lighter I feel would look better on you.
    On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give it a 6.
    Do like your nails.

    • The nails are getting lots of attention in that white…LOL. And yeah, this one is definitely NOT a keeper. I’ve tried a few other Gabors lately, and am not too impressed with any of them. The Stylista is better, but still not thrilling.
