My Current Face Routine

Here is what I'm currently using and have been using for over 3 months or so:

*Merlot Grape Seed Moisturizer (check my review here)
*MAC Fast Response Eye Cream (use this when my eyes look puffy due to lack of sleep or a hangover)
*MAC Prep and Prime Skin Refined Zone Treatment – I apply this on my nose and lil bit on my cheeks or wherever I have visible pores.
*Philosophy – On a Clear Day, Oil Free Acne Spot Treatment – I apply this on a stubborn pimple that grew over night or has been sitting on my face for a couple days.
*Smashbox Photo Finish Primer – I'm really not liking this stuff. I still get oilies throughout the day.
*MAC Studiofix Fluid foundation
*MAC Studio Finish Concealer
*MAC Medium Dark natural/shimmer MSF (powder and highlighter duo)
*NARS Laguna Bronzer – use this for contouring

Currently on my Lips:
*MAC lipliner in Oak
*MAC Viva Glam or Rose Romance lipstick
*MAC Florabundance or Mimmy (from HK collection) lipglass

This list looks quite long but in fact I don't think I use too many products for my face. Some products I use everyday and other's not so much.

(Quick snapshot of what's in my makeup bag)

I'm also on the market for a new foundation. Any recommendations for oily skin and a matte finish look without looking too cakey?

I use carmex 2 for my chapped and cold sore prone lips. Hey i just suscribed to your youtube channel, under maLiasway and i watched some of your vids! Nice makeup you had on your vids! We have a couple of things in common like, i want to go to law school, i have mild acne on my cheeks 2, and we live in the same city. I'm suprised we never met. We should have drinks and talk makeup some time! P.S I found the "CLEANSER" you can buy it separately from QT at GNC. I am for sure going to buy it on Monday! Cant wait to take the needed "Doo-doos" thats been making me thicker in the belly! LOL!!xoxo Malia

@GorgeousMommyK - Yes Carmex is great. I have them everywhere.
@Meya - I tried it once but the mua didn't match me well. I'll give it another shot.
@Malia - Tnx for subbing. We've prolly bumped into each other sometime. lol. But we will def. get together someday. That is a must!!! And that is great that you found the cleanser. I just finished the 14 day system but the last 5 days or so I didn't exercise at all. I'll post a quick blog about it in a bit. Good luck on the "doo-doos" LOL.
