Chanel Haul

Hi lovelies,

After hearing about Chanel discontinuing their Pro Lumiere foundation, I finally decided to cave in and buy it. I am currently a MAC NC25 in SFF. I tried both 30 and 40, but found that 30 was slightly darker than NC25. The difference between 30 and 40 is about half a shade, so technically I could get away with either. 40 would probably be an NC30 - 35 equivalent and great as my summer shade. That being said, I did find that this foundation is a little heavier and probably best for spring/fall and winter. So I went ahead and chose 30 cendre.

I had also heard amazing things about the Teint Innocence foundation (liquid) and that it was unfortunately discontinued as well. However, the counter I went to, still had them! Woohooo! And with a $20 discount and vouchers from work, I simply had to try it as well. I chose 40 in the Teint Innocence as it felt lighter and suitable for summer. I will probably use this more in summer or even mix the 2 throughout the year.

I will write an in-depth review with swatches once I have tested the foundations enough.

Have you tried Chanel foundations?



  1. I'm currently using Vitalumiere Aqua (I wear shade B20) and looooove it! I don't think i've ever met such a smooth and natural texture before.

    I wanna get Teint Innocense to use in the summer :)

  2. I really wanna try Teint Innocence.. Read some good things about it..

    I have Mat Lumiere which I think is really nice with lovely coverage..

  3. @ Saadeh, I really want to try the Vitalumiere Aqua as well. My counter doesn't sell it yet. We're probably about half a year behind.

    Ladies, definitely try and get your hands on Teint Innocense. It's a dream!
