Really good foundation for the dry skin. Has good coverage. Loved the packaging!!!! But toooo expensive for such a small amount of product you get.

I hate that it is being discontinued :/
Even though i my skin gets oily with in an hour lol. That is just my skin (i hav learned to accept it... for now)
I love the foundation because it is very saturated in color a little bit goes a long way. i battle with my hyperpigmentation scars, trying to hide them at all costs lol
I have very textured skin (large pores, scars... gross) a lot of foundations look un-natrual and magnify the imperfections. Even though i do not get oily (as fast) with those types of foundations, i can not stand the way they look.
I would rather blot my skin and look good than look unatrual and blot less often.
I love the color selection at chanel, on the yellow scale rather than pink. My perfect shade in the winter is shell.
The foundation is very emollient and blends like magic. Concealer works in unison with the foundation, after i place spot of concealer it meshes with the foundation in a very nice way. I do get oily, but i can handle it by blotting with a paper towel very lightly. The foundation does not separate and turn blotchy or oxidize into a ugly color.

Hello everyone! I usually never write reviews, but I made exception for this product. It is very very good, and the coverage that it provides is super. BUT those who have acne-prone skin Please never buy or even try.

This is my second time buying this product, so as you can see, I am in love with this foundation!
This is great for dry skin! The first time I bought it, it became a bit darker than me since I lost my tan. So I started trying out other foundations (mac studio sculpt, which was alright, drugstore brands) forgetting about how amazing the teint innocence was. I finally went back to the chanel counter to try out their poudre douce soft pressed powder when I ended up falling in love again with the teint innocence after she applied on my face.
These are the wonders it did for me.
-Covered up my pores, much better than studio sculpt did
-Only need a little bit to cover my face, (my 1st compact lasted me a year)
-Gave a me a healthy glow, and you can actually build up your glow just by adding more moisturizer. I use ponds
-Coverage is amazing, even though it's sheer to medium, it covered up all my scars and sealed my imperfections better than the studio sculpt which was supposed to be full coverage.
I would recommend this for people with normal to dry skin, but if you guys have oily skin, try it out first at the counter and see how it goes. Oh and don't use the sponge it comes with, the first lady that gave this to me a year ago didn't tell me this and I had to learn myself. The recent lady that I just bought the 2nd compact from recommened I just use a foundation brush.
Plus if you guys want more coverage without using a lot, I used those small triangular sponges, the foundation lasted a year for me just using that.

just perfect! I've been using laura mercier oil free foundation but this one is much better. It's a bit expensive but it's worth it! definitely give a try.

Seems to be cakey (The make up artist apply some moisturiser then the foundation that s why I felt cakey) I think better wait til the moisturiser absorbed before apply foundation. It looks healthy skin and medium coverage. I got the perfect shade also. I walked out searching some shops outside but my buddha it didn t make my face even oily or greasy but looks health glow nice complexion. It s last for more than 6 hours.

Amazing coverage---I thought this was going to be cakey and heavy---well its not at all! I have always used mineral makeup---and I will never go back after this...I love it and the coverage is beautiful and my skin glows after. Love Love Love!

I could never find a liquid or cream foundation that I was really satisfied with. My mom has been using this for quite some time now, and about a year ago I decided to try it myself. I'm now on my second compact! It's creamy, hydrating, buildable & has a beautiful finish. I only use the sponge applicator for touch-ups or blending over blemishes. I've tried it with a foundation brush, but overall I get the best finish with a stippling brush. I don't always use primer (when I'm in a rush) or set it with powder and it still lasts all day. I use it about 3x a week, sometimes more, sometimes less and 1 compact lasts me about 9 months. I think it's because of the stippling brush. It doesn't grab a lot of product, but just enough to get an even cover. I wish they sold refills for it, so I wouldn't have to keep buying a new compact (like the testers in store)

Velvety-soft, hydrating powder based foundation. Despite its powder content, extremely comfortable to wear. Coverage: medium to full-on is realisable.
Only for those inclined to a 'proper made-up' look: nothing natural-looking here. That said, it's Chanel, so not at all harsh. Probably best to reserve for autumn-winter wear, though.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
Unfortunatelly, it was a terrible foundation for me! I have a small red pimples around my face from this foundation, so i would not buy this stuff again.

I'm really not sure whether I like this product or not. I think I'm leaning towards liking it.
I normally wear Chanel's Pro Lumiere foundation in 20 Clair which is perfect for my skin tone. When I ran out of this, I went to a store to repurchase and discovered that it had been discontinued in Australia, so I was recommended the Teint Innocence in 20 Clair.
When I took this product home, I discovered that it is slightly darker than my Pro Lumiere foundation in 20 Clair.
However, Teint Innocence appears to lighten or adjust to my complexion, giving me more of a natural look as time passes.
The coverage is light to medium. I find that it takes a while to build coverage as each layer needs some time to set. Even after several layers have been applied, I'm not convinced the coverage is all that fantastic.
It does feel great on the skin, however. It has a nice cool watery feel. It hasn't caused pimples on my acne-prone skin.
I've found the best way to use this is to use it as a touch-up product over other Chanel liquid foundations. On its own, the coverage is not good enough for me but it works really well when I need to cover up a few red bits where my liquid foundation has worn off. This is also a lot easier than reapplying liquid foundation at work which can be really messy.
Therefore, I would recommend this as a "touch-up" product but wouldn't recommend it be used on its own if you need good coverage. Also, it is quite expensice ($90+ in Australia), so it is more cost effective to use it with other foundations.
Would I buy it again? I would really have to think about it as it is sooo expensive. I can't see it lasting all that long either. Be sure to use it with a sponge that doesn't absorb too much product or with a brush.
Having tried several Chanel products, I recommend sticking to traditional liquid foundations as they allow more control and coverage.

HG. hands down. i only use this for my under eye concealing. ive been using this for the past 2 1/2 years & still going hitting a bit of pan. chanel products last forever. i love this foundation because it looks very natural and everything i am lookin for in a cream to powder foundation. its not cakey or ashy. not oily and greasy. i use it everyday and it does it's job. i am 0.8 gentle ivory (lightest shade) = nc20 nw20 in mac.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
this is lovely, i got compliments immediately after trialing at this Chanel counter and walked around for the day.
For reference i am NC30 (yellow toned) and i get Beige 40.
Perfect match for my skin colour.
this foundation is HEAVY coverage, might make you feel a little bit cake-faced if you apply too much, but good bye all imperfections.
The creamy consistency is nice on my dry skin, not sure how it goes for oily people but it lasts quite a loong time, maybe 7 hrs +?
Packaging - bulky unnecesarily
Amount - very small amount for the price you are paying, but friend used it sparingly and it lasted her a good 3 years (only going out weekends etc). The tube is.. about 1/5th of the product size.
If you buy for the brand, you will def get a brand-bang out of this as it comes with a lovely pouch, el mucho grande CC, smooth lines, black plastic etc etc
Expensive $98.00, but decen on t strawberrynet for $62 provided your colour is there so i will repurchase there.
MY HGGGGGGGG! (hoping to find cheaper hg alternative in the mean time)

I have one thing to say: skip this and buy the Liquid version. The compact comes no where near the quality of the liquid TI (although both seem very drying, need moisturizing prior to application). Also, the same colors are actual 1 shade darker. The 01 in liquid is so light w/ neutral undertones, simply lovely color. But is completely dark and yellow in the compact. Awful texture, greasy, mask like finish. Nothing natural. You skin ends up looking exactly like the inside of the compact's pan. Yellow or orange or pink, no skin show under, no sheerness, nothing. If it could help...it really looks identical as the Bobbi Brown corrector. I love the corrector but I wouldn't put it ALL over my face!! So it is too thick and you definitely feel like you are applying BB corrector everywhere on your face except than BB corrector is less drying and has MUCH lighter shades. I absolutely hate it and it doesn't look nice in the pan...looks like a muddy mess in pan and on the face. Also, avoid the sponge, best is a Kabuki bush (natural pony or goat hair) or foundation brush w/ synthetic hair. Both seem to work well and apply evenly without putting too much product on the face.

This is my 'go to' foundation for mornings before work (I use a liquid in the evenings). It's so quick and easy to apply, and has a gentle glowy finish (not too shiny/greasy, or too matte). I do normally blot at some point in the day to take away any shine. The compact is very chic, I like to pull it out! My only quibble is that the foundation doesn't last very long at all - maybe only a couple of months of daily use, and at this price, I didn't feel it was fantastic value for money (although you can buy refills for cheaper once you have the compact). If you are looking for a compact foundation, this is definitely worth trying on in store - despite my gripes about cost/quantity of the product, I'm still planning to buy my third refill!

Chanel: Prices are set because it is the top shelf product.
I tried to pick it up with a brush and PERSONALLY preferred to pick it up with my fingers and blended with a sponge.
It has a great texture. Not heavy on, if you have oily skin don't worry it does not add any extra oils.
Went smoothly, blends great.
Alone it can be dewy.
It does brighten up my skin. More matte when set with finishing powder.
Wears all day!
Color matched great.
Has SPF 10 ++

I so wanted to love this! I have been on a little Chanel obsession and recently had a visiting Chanel makeup artist at a Chanel counter do a little makeover on me. This looked so nice. Naturally I got it. After using it for about a week though, my normally dry skin was having some big clogged pore and break-out issues, and that just isn't me. Normally I get a pimple or two at TTOM. This was crazy - little bumps everywhere! In addition, wearing it all day, I felt like it never really dried to a powder finish on my skin, or melded with my skin at all. It just sat on top of my skin, felt a little greasy all the time, and rubbed off on everything. Sad. Very glad Chanel has a good return policy.

Love this foundation and I have tried everything from Revlon Colorstay to Makeup Forever HD Foundation. It is the perfect cream to powder foundation that is buildable. You can use your fingers, foundation brush or my favorite, a flat top kabuki brush, to apply. Super quick application (especially with kabuki). Wear alone for dewy look or top with translucent powder (I use Makeup Forever HD Powder) for matte finish. The only downsides would be price and bulky packaging (relative to how much product you get). At first, thought the scent was strong & interesting, but am used to it now. Compact is super cute though and feel like such an adult using it. :)

I have been trying several of Chanel's foundations and unfortunatelly I haven't found a foundation light enough for me.
I used this powder/ cream foundation for some months. Yucky, greasy feeling. It looks patchy after some hours. Not good enough coverage and mask-like appearance (of course, the fact that it's not a good colour match doesn't help).
I gave it to my mom and promised to myself to stop buying Chanel foundations. Expensive and not much quality. I have to admit that I was buying it for the 'name', but I have to learn to be wiser.

This is a great foundation. This was my first foundation (and well, my first Chanel product) ever. Like all foundations, there's a trick to using this product.
The SA did my face with this creme foundation and I instantly bought it. When I left it on for an hour or so I realized that my face looked dull and tanned. By bf said that I looked a shade darker. So, I was pretty annoyed for having paid a bomb for this foundation without giving it much thought. I didnt use it for a couple weeks. Then, one day I picked it up again to give it a second try and voila! it worked beautifully. I have since come to realize that my skin does not need a whole layer of foundation. I use it only to cover some redness and make the complexion look smooth and even (btw, for me less is more and i like the sheer quality of make up. I never try to cover-up some of my natural blemishes). It is slightly dewy which i love and it has that lovely youthful feel to it. I use the sponge that comes with the foundation (although has anyone tried anything else? I dont feel comfortable using my fingers for this one just because I dont want to scoop the product out with the fingers). So, basically for me this a great sheer foundation that I let sink in and do its magic. I usually put it on w/o a primer and then leave my face alone for a couple minutes while I do my hair or something. I, then go back to doing the rest of my make-up because by that time, the foundation has sunk in and looks what it is supposed to look like!
