Also, if you want to order Giorgio Armani and Guerlain cosmetics but don't have a counter near you, call Elyse and Gabby and let them know I [Rachel] sent you. They will ship whatever you want/need to you! I have ordered from both of them, over phone and in person, and their recommendations are spot-on :) Plus, they will send you samples if you need them!

They are truly knowledgeable and incredibly valuable resources. Like I stated in my video, I do not earn commission or get ANYTHING out of giving you their contact information. I oftentimes get messages and comments about how difficult and intimidating some Sales Associates can be so I thought I'd share with you my two favorite SAs. Believe me, I've met and worked with hundreds but Elyse and Gabby are the best. They are not pushy or demanding. They want you to love their product! Plus, I think it's much better to work with a SA who actually believes in the products and works for the line because he/she loves the line, even if the brand doesn't sell as well [as opposed to the girls who work for a more profitable line for the sake of earning more money]. That's just my two cents but give Elyse and Gabby a shot. You won't regret it ^.^
