Prom is a special moment in time. It is a fleeting moment, but one that will be remembered forever. It is important to look the best that one can look since the photographs will last a lifetime and it is a joyous occasion. There are a number of products that are must-haves when preparing for the special event.
Whether one has dry skin or very oily skin, excess oil can sometimes be apparent on the skin. The first must-have product are the Proactiv Oil Blotter Sheets. “No one wants to look back on prom pictures and regret an oily t-zone. Made from 100% pure natural-fiber paper, Oil Blotter Sheets absorb excess oil to leave skin feeling fresh and clean, with a beautiful matte finish. And, with zero artificial ingredients and no talc, they won’t clog your pores.” The product is available at a price of $11, and can be purchased at DiscoverProactiv.com and 1-888-819-2019. The sheets are compact and can easily be carried in one’s clutch.
The next product is from L’Oréal Paris — the True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer. This product is outstanding. It is available for a price of $8.95 and can be purchased via lorealparisusa.com, and any location where products are sold. There are a number of shades available to suit every skin tone. The brand says of the product: “Flawless skin is the first step to creating your prom night canvas. This innovative, easy-to-use stick concealer offers a versatile, on-the-go solution for covering blemishes and imperfections. The point of the crayon allows for precise application, while the side can work a larger area of skin such as the under eye. The formula contains high levels of liquid and soft (vs. hard) waxes, giving it an ultra-creamy, lightweight texture with superior blendability. Its high-pigment concentration provides excellent coverage, while the elevated liquid content, silicone elastomers and light-diffusing pigments keep the product from looking cakey on skin.” Again, this is a product that can be carried in one’s bag on the night of the event for touch-ups.
The next product is also from L’Oréal Paris, and is the Magic De-Crease Eyelid Primer. The product is also available for $8.95. “You can dance the night away and your eye makeup will still stay put and looking fresh after applying this magical primer. Specifically designed for eyelids, this primer addresses two common concerns of eye shadow users – wear and creasing. In addition to upping the ante on the intensity of the end beauty look, Magic De-Crease Eyelid Primer extends the wear of shadow and prevents shadow from settling into lines and creases.” Whenever one wears eyeshadows it is important to wear a primer to keep the shadows looking great, and lasting for a number of hours.
L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quads very pigmented, and come in a number of shades. They retail for $7.95. The line says of the quads: “Color authority L’Oréal Paris is proud to expand its Colour Riche franchise to include a new collection of eye shadow quads customized with trend-driven, wearable hues and specially developed to create not just one eye look, but endless statement looks for your every mood. The shades are grouped in three families to help you ﬁnd the best palette for you. Available in pearl and matte ﬁnishes, the sophisticated shades vary from softly shimmering to bold and intensely rich.” There are shades to fit every look for the special event, and can be used along with the eyeshadow primer.
Two nail products from L’Oréal Paris were reviewed as well, the Colour Riche Nail Lingerie is the first, and retails for $8.95. “Sparkle at prom with Colour Riche Nail Lingerie that allows women to create endless nail looks with one sticker. The perfect accessory to polish, these 3D nail jewels can be layered with any nail color for a sophisticated sparkle effect. Designed for the nail novice, they require no dry time and offer mistake-proof application.” The final nail product is one of the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail shades from the “Trend Setter” collection.

Each polish gives pure, rich coverage, high-wattage shine and rare color intensity due to Crystal Acrylics, shine agents and ﬁnely dispersed color pigments.” With the various nail options, there are many different looks that can be achieved for prom.
