I remember reading someone's rant on MAKEUPALLEY recently - the poster griped that a SA rudely corrected the poster's pronounciation of a particular brand, making her feel small and embarrassed.
I'm quite sure we've all come across brands or even product names that we sometimes trip-up pronoucing - I think Bourjois and Guerlain were one of those that I had a some trouble with. Recently, someone told me that Stila should be pronounced STEE-LAH and not STI-LA (emphasis on the EEEE sound) as I had been pronouncing all these years. I thought it might be interesting to hear your thoughts and experiences, if any. Also, have any of you been rudely corrected by anyone so far?

Let's take a poll? Imagine this scenario - you're looking for a particular brand but cannot find it on the shelves. You need to approach the BA / SA to locate it but you're not terribly sure how to pronounce the brand name. What will you do?
I wonder what the majority answer will be?
Thanks for participating!
