I really liked this video! I thought her advice was really well thought-out - certainly not as rash as we thought her thinking process was, and I quite liked the makeup although the contour and that piece of material poking out through the side kept annoying me, haha.

The apartment hunting video was the first video I've enjoyed from her in a while. The padmapper website is a pretty cool find. I loved her makeup and I think if she had a different hairstyle she wouldn't have looked like she was in her 30s.

Isn't it a bit premature for an apartment/moving guide? I know she's moved there already but there's no telling if it's successful.. She could run out of money, be unable to pay rent, and have to move back within a few months. I mean she doesn't even have a job, wouldn't that be part of a successful move?

^ I mean it was just about finding a good apartment, not about maintaining her lifestyle. I think she actually knew what she was talking about for once

I think she appears to look better than usual in her new video because the camera is angled downward, as apposed to her usual straight forward angling. Her double chin is less distracting now that you cant see it bobbling around with every word.

According to that video though, it doesn't seem like she has any plans to seek work outside of the house. She mentioned when they might consider getting a better place in the future that it would probably be because Chris had a salary paid job and she was doing more on YouTube. I do get the feeling that she's putting more effort in now. The tips seemed genuinely thought out and, I could be wrong here, but I don't think she's always put a sensible opening comment with google+ on her other videos. The one she left on the apartment hunting comment section appeared like a person actually trying to attract people to their video content.

And then they'll see her other videos and leave ;)

I'm kind of rooting for her and her channel with this Seattle move but there should be no excuses from her to have a nice filming set up and be more creative with her videos. If she doesn't put up at least 2 videos a week, with Youtube being "full time" now, I will scream.
Also, when will she zoom the fuck out? Her framing does nothing for her body/the video content.

In her new video I got really mad when she talked about potentially moving into a bigger apartment once Christ gets a better paying job and once she does YouTube "full time" :x YOU CAN STILL GET A FUCKING JOB RACHEL! We all know that doing YouTube full time is just an excuse.

But this is Rachel. She's not going to get a job unless they're on the verge of being homeless, if that.
And I'll be thoroughly surprised if she starts doing YouTube "full time."

IDK what she expects to do with her channel. I think that most people who find her videos are going to be turned off by her immaturity and constant cussing. It seems that most people who want to watch tutorials and product reviews don't want to hear 'this shit works fucking great' and 'blend that shit all over' and stuff like that. Maybe her 14 year old tumblr fans thing it's cute but it seems to me that most people who want to follow someone for tutorials and product reviews don't want to hear 'this shit works fucking great' and 'blend that shit out' or whatever. Then there's the general obnoxiousness of the word vomits.
Can you imagine what that "contour" looks like in reality? Even if she did attempt to do it full time, what is she possibly going to do for videos? She already has a million neutral looks, this is the second contour video she's done recently, and I think the unboxing videos are really boring.

Personally, i find her tutorials and reviews are absolute crap for this reason. "This shit works great" ...okay that gives me no information. and same for her tutorials, she doesnt direct the viewer she just curses to seem cool.
shes getting to the age where excessive cursing just gets weird because it seems like shes trying too hard

Yeah it does make her seem like a try hard. Look how she described that bare minerals foundation, it was basically like, 'hey it makes me look fucking flawless, its dewey, covers shit, it has fucking pigment ass shit in it'. That was all I got from the video anyway. Um, how about mention what's in it, how you think it would hold up on various skin types, describe the shade range, how many shades, do they lean warm, cool, how does it do without a 70.00 primer underneath, etc. She didn't even bother describing any details about the colors in the contour kit, who she thinks they would suit (not that i would EVER take her advice on contour color lol ), etc. No one in their right mind would hire her to try and sell products to customers at a place like Sephora if they saw her videos. Not that I think she's actually planning on applying or anything, she's going to sit at home and crank out more neutral eye looks and contour with the wrong color, proclaim it fucking flawless, and call it a day.

I found her back when I was 17 on tumblr and thought she was hilarious and ~cool~ for cussing and not being the 'typical' guru, but now I'm 20 and I realise it just looks unprofessional lol
Imagine if she tried being a professional make up artist and directed people to her channel; they'd probably find someone else

She reminds me of graveyardgirl in the sense that she's trying to appeal to a younger audience and it's just weird how she's attempting to do it
Other gurus that start out young progress and change as they get older, but she just seems to get worse

I think there has to be a normal flow to the way one speaks, and a lot of gurus have trouble finding that. Old Rachel seemed to do it fine, she seemed cool because the curses would flow when she would speak.

Ya know, I thought Chris sitting on the floor was just because of their old setup, but in this freaking video she was talking to him like he was sitting on the floor, too. I've said this before but that seriously annoys me and all I can picture is him sitting there gazing up at her while she's filming. Like, fuck off and go do something on your own, dude.

I can imagine him gazing up at her, legs crossed, hands folded in his lap, with the biggest grin on his face

Girl needs to get a job. Not too many people find her appealing besides other weirdos and she barely makes decent videos. H

I know she said that they're buying their furniture at Target, but is it plausible that they will end up spending more than $1500 on everything? even for a studio apartment?

I just re subbed back to Rachel after about 2 months of not watching her videos. I see she still doesn't upload too frequently and most of her videos are not beauty related. Also her hair is still way too bright, but her make up looks better.


She seems a little less obnoxious to me now after her move, I'm glad she is happy (and it shows). I think she looks heavier than ever but she will probably lose weight now that she has to walk everywhere and I assume she will leave her apartment more now that she's in Seattle. But honestly, I could see her falling back into her old habits by the end of the summer. Sitting in her underwear watching netflix and screaming at Chris.

The grin is because she doesn't wear pants...

I can't with her sitting on the floor. How boring. She should either get serious about her "job" or quit Youtube altogether. Because right now, even after the move, it seems like she is still doing the same shit. And she can't use that "we just moved our lives across the nation" excuse either because they've been there for two weeks now? And she's posted photos of alcohol and having a "lazy day." Damn Rachel, every day of your life is lazy.
