Chanel Teint Innocence Fluid Makeup Spf 12: Foundation Review


chanel teint innocence fluid make up

About a month ago I purchased the Chanel Teint Innocence Fluid Makeup Spf 12 in shade 20 Claire-Cameo and have been using it off and on.  For a 1 oz. bottle I paid about $50.00 Cdn.  I first discovered this product from one of my gal pals Michelle from MupNorth who sent me a surprise package in the mail which included a sample of this foundation.  I tried it and noticed the quality that of this makeup is great.  The Chanel Teint Innocence went on really smooth and blended easily. I find that in general Chanel foundations are beautifully formulated and glide effortessly onto a well exfoliated and moisturized face.  This foundation was no exception.

When it comes to Chanel products I have to admit that I consider myself a late bloomer.  I have tried Chanel skincare through samples that I have received over the years but never really made it a point of going to a Chanel makeup counter and making a purchase.  Last spring all that changed.  I have since purchased and fallen in love with several of their products which I use everyday.  I will leave that for another post.





Chanel Teint Innocence Foundation is described as a fluid that is naturally luminous with a dream coverage and an Spf12.  The description is correct, however I did find it to be a tad on the sheer side and it was a little more challenging to build up the coverage if more was needed in certain areas.  It also has a slight perfume scent to it.  When I apply this foundation I always apply a little more than I normally would in order to get the coverage that I prefer.  The tools that I use for application are my fingers and a slightly damp non-latex makeup wedge.  

I would recommend this foundation to anyone who wants a sheer, natural coverage.  I can definitely see myself using this foundation during the summer months when a light makeup look is what I want to achieve.  If you do use the Chanel Teint Innocence I would recommend setting it with a powder using a large fluffy makeup brush or with a dry makeup wedge pressing some translucent powder onto your face where you normally would get grimey first then brushing off the excess.  I've included a picture of myself wearing this foundation.

Have any of you used this foundation? What's your take on this foundation?  I always appreciate your comments and read each and every one of them.



Thanks for stopping by.  xxNadia

Chanel Teint Innocence can be purchased at Amazon.com for about $46.

You take the most beautiful pictures!
I haven't tried any of the Chanel foundations because I'm afraid that the smell will irritate my eyes. I have the most sensitive skin & eyes. I am dying to though. Maybe I will have to take that chance.

you look gorgeous and you have gorgeous skin!
i have the chanel teint innocence foundation. i got it during the summer and as much as i wanted to love it... it just didnt work for me... it oxidizes on me and made me look orange =(... i thought it looked better as they day got on when i wore it because it sort of faded =(... I also find the packaging annoying too. But i'm glad this works for you =).

@GiGi, I would not recommend this foundation as my first choice. I probably would have your try the Chanel Pro Lumiere or the Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer or MAC Face and Body Foundation. Those are what I grab for all the time. xxN

@Linda Phuong Tran, This foundation wasn't my favourite from the Chanel family, but I tried applying it with different tools. Its staying power is so-so. I am in agreement about the packaging, specifically the opening. Thanks for the compliment :) xxN

I love Chanel foundations...I haven't tried this one yet but I'm a huge fan of the Vitalumiere & more recently the ProLumiere. Oh & I always buy at duty-free:)

@Lizzclare, I find this Chanel Foundation a little too sheer. I haven't tried the Nars Sheer Glow as of yet. xxN

@Monica, I totally forgot about getting Chanel at Duty Free!! I use the VitaLumiere in the summer. My favourite is still the ProLumiere. xxN

You look so beautiful and your skin is always amazing :) I've come to love Chanel products more and more the past year. I think it was Pixiwoo who first got me interested in Chanel. My holy grail loose powder is from Chanel and is to die for! I love their foundations as well, but I'm starting to like foundation with more coverage so I might try out the pro lumiere.

Love your blog posts! ♥

I've been considering buying this foundation for a while but have put it off because it's not exactly inexpensive! after reading your review I think I'll definitely give it a try - not least of all because it looks absolutely gorgeous on you (though I think that may have something to do with your ridiculously perfect skin!)
