How To Pronounce Beauty Brand Names















I don't know about you ladies, but I have a ridiculously hard time pronouncing beauty brand names.  And it can get pretty embarrassing when I claim to be a beauty guru, then say the name of a brand incorrectly.  Below are a few of the most common beauty brands that people mispronounce.

Borghese
How to pronounce it: bor-gay-zeh (NOT bor-gay-zee)

Bourjois
How to pronounce it: boor-jwah 

NYX
How to pronounce it: nix (NOT N.Y.X.)

Shu Uemura
How to pronounce it: shoe oo-eh-moor-ah

L'Occitane En Provence
How to pronounce it: lox-ee-tann uhn pro-vaunce

Sheiseido
How to pronounce it: sheh-say-do

Stila
How to pronounce it:  stee-lah

Rimmel
How to pronounce it:  rim-l


Chantecaille
How to pronounce it:  shan-tuh-kigh


Guerlain
How to pronounce it:  gerr-lahn (the n is silent)



Helpful, no?  I must admit, I was definitely pronouncing some of these incorrectly.  But now I can talk about beauty brands with confidence! Huzzah!
