Bella Quiz: How Well Do You Know Your Beauty Brands?

I'll never forget how mortified I was when, as a teenager, I wanted to go to Sephora but I couldn't figure out whether it was pronounced "SEFF-or-ah" or "seh-FORR-ah" or "sepp-orr-ah." I'd always say, "Let's go to the big makeup store" rather than call it by name. Finally I figured out how to say the name, and it was such a relief!

How well do you pronounce the names behind the makeup counter? Wager your best guesses now in this quiz, and dust off your high-school French—it'll come in handy. If there's a brand name you've been trying to figure out, leave a note in the comments and I'll address it when I post a pronunciation cheat sheet tomorrow. Ready to test your knowledge?

i'm so proud, i got a perfect score!!!! it really drives me up a wall when people pronounce certain designers incorrectly (burberry, for some reason, is like my pet peeve!), so I'm really glad i'm not guilty of it myself! although, i swear by stila makeup (i have for years now) and spend farrrr too much time in sephora/on their website, so if i pronounced those incorrectly, i would have to be very ashamed!

I looked up pronunciations online before I went to Sephora and asked where the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers were located. By the way, it's the best curler EVER!

Pronounces perfectly. Not very difficult though : I'm French and there were quite a lot of French brands among the tested ones. :-D I actually found it not natural to read those American pronounciation terms. Sha-nell : it's more a riddle to me than seeing Chanel. ;-)
