Review-Clarins Everlasting Foundation SPF 15

Hey guys :) Hope you're having a great Sunday!

Clarins Everlasting is a new foundation I've been trying for the last couple of weeks.I have it in 108 Sand.It's a tad yellow for me but I can make it work.
I purchased it after I got a sample with a magazine.The sample was 107(can't remember the name) and it was ok at the beginning and then it  oxidized like hell.I was basically orange but I really liked the texture so I went out to buy it.Easier said than done.I must say this foundation's  really hard to find.I had to go to four Sephoras to find it.The first one didn't have a Clarins counter and the other two did not have the product.It was a pain in the bum to say the least.

I finally found a Sephora that had a counter and the product but they only had the 108 ,112 and some other shade I can't remember now.I was going for 103 cause that was the closest I thought I was going to get to my perfect match.I asked the lady there for some testers and she told very rudely that they didn't have anymore and then she turned her back to me and walked away.Then a Clarins consultant came and she asked me what I was looking for and I told her and she was nice enough to open the actual product and test it on my hand( the 108 ).Which was not very professional because what would have happened if I hadn't bought the product? But to my surprise the 108 was a lot lighter than the 107 and I bought it.She also gave me loads of samples of skincare products which was very nice of her:)

Let's see what the producer has to say about this foundation :

''15 of complexion perfection ! A long-hold foundation that stays true, ensuring a flawless complexion.

A melting, lightweight texture for absolute comfort, perfect make-up results and impeccable hold that lasts 15 hours thanks to the High Fidelity System. Make-up stays true all day long. "

My opinion:

The melting ,lightweight part is dead on.It just feels wonderful on the skin.It dries to a matte finish and it's quite creamy.

The coverage is great too.I would say it's medium -full.

The lasting power is average.I have very oily skin so no foundation lasts more than 7-8 hours on my skin.
This I would say lasts for about 9 hours the  most.And this counting 3-4 touch ups throughout the day.

Comparing this to Revlon Colorstay which was my previous foundation and has been my HG for about 2 years,I must say I like this better.One downside is their colour selection.They have mostly yellow shades and they don't suit everyone.More neutral tones would definitely be better.

Another downside is that it oxidizes very much at first.Initially it's really pale and sfter 1-2 minutes it changes quite a bit.The good news is that it doesn't change colour throughout the day.Even in high humidity and on my oily skin it stayed the same colour.

Price: 133 lei

Would I buy this again :Hell yeah :)) I actually went to Sephora the other day to buy a back up but they didn't have it but they told me to come back at the beginning of February cause that's when they'll receive more products.

Hope you found this useful:)
