Yes, so from what I have read about Clarins Ever Matte, it's really a better foundation for people who don't need much coverage / who have really good skin in the first place. My question to you would be: how oily are you.
I am VERY oily (my entire face gets very shiny, and most foundations break apart - I singlehandedly disprove almost every long-wearing foundation's claims at longevity, so I quite appreciate the ones that actually do last on me!), and I tried D*G classic creamy foundation in the shade 060 Classic, which is the lightest shade. The shade match was great, and would probably work for you, but the problem was that when I started to get oily, even with good mattifying powder, the foundation just couldn't retain it's surface cohesion.
It ended up breaking apart and sliding around all over my face making me look like a hot mess - very unpolished and not professional / made me feel unattractive too, especially when I'm having breakouts and I look in a mirror and notice that some of my pimples / scars have become apparent since the foundations has slid off of them!!
So, long story short. If you have break outs and aren't SUPER oily, then give this a go in classic 060. But if you are pretty oily, then I would go with Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H in something like 210N, or Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in Intensity 1.0. I just ordered the Estee Lauder as I just ran out of my Chanel Perfection Lumiere and want something lighter for summer. Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet in B10 would be a good one as well, but I haven't tried it so I can't really tell you how it is. I used to use that Lancome TIU 24h...if you want coverage, WOW, that one has PHENOMENAL coverage. But it doesn't look fake or too heavy. Also I know girls who looooooove their coverage like the Estee Lauder Double Wear regular that comes in a glass bottle, but I've also read that that one looks super heavy and almost fake and it feels like you're wearing so much makeup and can possibly break you out more.
So I say, evaluate your skin, and if you're comfortable, go for the dolce, but if you have reservations, play it safe with estee lauder double wear light or lancome teint idole ultra 24 h (this would be my first choice for you), or chanel perfection lumiere b10 (this is my hg right now, but since it's summer I'm going lighter weight to branch out) or chanel perfection lumiere velvet in b10.
