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
