The Discontinued Chanel Teint Innocence Foundation

I have a dilemma. I love my Chanel Teint Innocence foundation, but it was discontinued a while back and replaced by Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. Teint Innocence was the lightest of all Chanel foundations and I'm still pretty upset about it being discontinued. From what I have heard, Vitalumiere is a heavier coverage foundation. I have not gotten a chance to try Vitalumiere and would love to try it to see if its a good replacement.

Chanel Teint Innocence Foundation provides the most beautifully soft and light coverage.

The worse thing about this foundation is its packaging. This liquid foundation is stored in a pump-less glass bottle. It is difficult to use and impossible to clean out. The bright side is that this monstrosity of a bottle won't be produced anymore.

Teint Innocence in 20 Clair - Cameo fresh on my wrist without blending. Once blended in, it looks absolutely invisible (albeit my wrist is paler than my face).

Can Vitalumiere replace Teint Innocence? Also, does anyone know if the shades are the same or not?


  1. I have that and the truth is a hassle to apply. and hopefully no longer serve in this presentation.

  2. Edith,
    I agree with you completely. The bottle makes it impossible. I don't know who thought it would be a good idea. I wish they would have just repackaged it.

  3. Too bad it's replaced...and what made them think that kind of packaging was a good choice at all?! It looks unbearable. You would waste so much product with that kind of bottle!

  4. Amyboo,
    haha yea tell me about it

  5. i heard GREAT reviews on vita lumiere aqua: it seems it is VERY light indeed (actually: the "bad" reviews said that it was to light ;))) I'm really considering buying that :)

    :) cheers! @BeingRaquel
