Lancome Color Ideal Foundation Review

I was able to get a couple samples to test of the new, and heavily promoted Lancome foundation, Color Ideal.
I have worn it for 2 days now, and am pretty pleased with it. It has a matte finish and stays that way for the whole day . Few touch ups , if any, were needed for me, and I have oily skin.
It's light to medium coverage, I do like a little more coverage, but with 1 full coat and a light going over it works well. The one problem to me was that I do need concealer on any areas that need more coverage. Most foundations I use eliminate that need. I hardly use it. I do have good skin, and am not in the mature skin category either.
It does blend incredibly well, and looks quite good. I was very happy with how nice my skin looked, even after much of the day . It does not settle into any lines and does not " creep ". It also stays very color true. It does give a bit of a glow as well, not a lot, but it's there.( Lancome website says there are pearly particles.)
If this were more straight medium coverage it would be a total winner.
I think Magique Matte Mousse is still the fav from Lancome, but I am thinking about purchasing this.
I would give Color Ideal 4 out of 5 stars.
Macys - Lancome is currently having get a 10 day supply of this foundation, so a great time to get it and try it.
