Frequently Asked Questions/Media Info

How do you pronounce Palacinka?

What is the story behind the name?
We are well aware that a Palacinka is a thin, crepe-like pancake that those of you from Central/Eastern Europe are very familiar with (we also love them:).

However, one of our founders is married to a man from ex-Yugoslavia and his family gave her the nickname "Palacinka" because they had trouble pronouncing her real name. It's also a slang term in her husband's town for a "pretty girl". Isn't that nice?

Hence the name for the blog...

How do you test products?

We have a panel of 12 dedicated beauty junkies, many of whom write about beauty/style for a living, who test our products (along with our founders and Sr. staff members).

We cover a wide range of ethnic backgrounds, skin shades, hair textures and ages, as well living all across the U.S., in addition to Canada and other international cities.

All products are tested from 1-2 weeks (color cosmetics/fragrance) to 2-3+ weeks (skin care, hair care, body care nutritional products).

Since we only write about what we love, you never waste your time reading bad reviews, and we help you take the guesswork out of buying your next beauty product!(tm)
