I prefer teint idole, I find it lasts quite well with a decent primer - I have normal/dry skin though. The shades seem to suit my skin better than DW light too. I really liked DW light for summer though. I wore it in the American South last summer and it.felt fine.
I've tried loads of foundations over the years; always come back to ELDW Light. I've always had very greasy skin and its the best, I can't be arsed to reapply /touchup during the day but with the DW light I don't need to. It helps that I found the perfect shade for me. I've often had friends remark on how good my skin is, they're always surprised when I tell them its my makeup as its not at all thick or cakey on me; I like a natural finish. I always apply with clean fingers though, tried sponges /brushes but warm fingers seem to blend it best. HTH.
I've recently started using the ELDW Light. I like it. It's much lighter than the ELDW but it has pretty good staying power. I still get shiny/oily but it's easy to blot away and the make up is still in place underneath. The choice of shades isn't great though. I haven't tried the Lancome so can't compare. I did try a sample of a Lancome long lasting foundation (might have had 24h in the name?) recently and didn't like it as much as the ELDW.
If you have trouble finding light enough shades, you might be better with the full ELDW as there are so many more shades. You can just use a small amount and mix it with a bit of moisturiser to get a more sheer effect if you don't like the full coverage. The ELDW Light doesn't have particularly light shades. I got 1.0. There's also a 0.5 but I think it might be a bit pinker.
