A while back I had the opportunity to try the Mirabella Skin Tint Crème liquid foundation. I chose the shade 1N. It looks a lot lighter on the skin than it does in the bottle. It claims to be a full coverage liquid foundation.
The Website Claims:
Luxurious full-coverage and mineral-based Foundation. Water-gel formula glides on; dries quickly to a silky luminescent finish. Contains skin protection properties. Available in 14 shades guaranteed to work for women of all color. Talc-free; Paraben-free; Lead-free; FD&C/D&C Dye-free.

I chose 1N, which is the lightest neutral shade. They also have:
1C, II N, II W, III N, III W, IV N, IV W, V C, V N, V W, VI C, and VI W.
N = Neutral, C = Cool, W = Warm
If you’re unsure of what shade you are, you can take their Perfect Match Quiz. They matched me to Fitzpatrick level I. It’s interesting because Mirabella states neutrals typically work for everyone:
Once you have determined your Fitzpatrick level, the next step is to find out if you are a cool (c), neutral (n) or warm (w) skin tone. The following information will help you find your tonal family. Neutral shades typically work on all skin tones.
I was a little amused because by their classifications, I fall under cool. I definitely have a cool overtone but because of my mix of undertones I feel neutral foundations look best.
Does it live up to its claims?
Yes! I really love this foundation. It is definitely the most full coverage foundation I own. I really like the finish of the foundation when it’s on my skin. It’s a great color match. The foundation looks great on my skin.

Would I purchase?
Yes! I think I look fantastic in this foundation. It really works well with my coloring. I would definitely purchase once I run out of the one that I have.
Product sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.

“Look washed out with black worn close to the face.” I was under the impression everyone could wear black? I’m warm toned, and I’ve certainly never had trouble.
I’m of the opinion that everyone can wear black. Black, white and tan are neutrals.
Another great foundation! I love full coverage, but I’m totally skeptical of their claim to be able to match all skin tones. Maybe I shouldn’t knock it til I try it haha.
It really does seem to have a gorgeous finish; it looks great on you!

Hi, hope I don’t seem ignorant but why just on the T zone? Is the rest of your face base free? (from a fellow ice princess)
@milkymoles Sometimes I only wear foundation on my t-zone and not the rest of my skin. Since that’s where I feel my skin looks ‘bad’ I sometimes only put foundation there.
One of the coolest things that I’ve learned is that you can just wear foundation where you need correcting if you want to
