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 ^.^


  1. Hi Rae! Quick question about the Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+. Do you use it over your moisturizer? And is it ok to use on the eyelid/eye area or should the eye area be avoided when using this product? Thank you so much for your reviews. They are filled with great information and excellent product features.

  2. do you find that the guerlain pressed powder in 03 darkens over time? I can't decide between 02 and 03.

  3. Ninja - I use it over moisturizer :) And I avoid the eye area because my eyes are sensitive!

    Anon - It darkens slightly so if you aren't tan, you might want to stick to 02!

  4. Hi Rae!
    what do you think? Face Atelier vs Giorgio, which ones better?


  5. Oooh i really love how informative your videos are, I'm creating wish lists based on your recommendations!

    I keep trying to leave you comments on youtube but I always get an error....it won't even let me subscribe to your channel :( So I thought to post here:

    I'm in the market for a powder foundation (for day use) and am intrigued by la mer now, but is it really a foundation or do you use it as a powder after applying liquid foundation?
