In Detail Tarte Birthday Suit Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint Review, Swatches and My Experience
This lip paint comes in a regular transparent lip gloss tube with black twist closure. Product description with all information is printed in glossy golden collar on the tube itself and it looks sober and sturdy. It is travel friendly and easy to carry in small purse or clutch. It comes with a regular duo foot applicator which is very flexible and gives you smooth precise application.
The one shown in the photos is a travel size product which is currently available with the Tarte Birthday gift set. This has a 0.034 oz or 1 mL of liquid lipstick in the shade “Birthday Suit”. And 0.05 oz or 1.5 g Tarte amazonian clay blush in the shade “Paaarty”.
While I was browsing Sephora’s website to find a perfect nude shade for my skin tone and complexion (fair to medium), I came across Tartiest Creamy Matte Lip Paint. Tarte offers huge spectrum of colours for these lip paints and I almost wanted to buy all, but coming back to point i wanted nude shade, so I read few reviews about the same and purchased this shade “Birthday Suit”.
It is a cool nude shade and is very pigmented, literally single stroke and you are good to go. Applicator is super soft and flexible and it has a hint of peppermint in it. Therefore, you can feel tingling sensation on your lips for few minutes after application and it smells the same.
It does oxidise and become a shade darker after application. What I did not like about this is, It is not transfer proof and transfers even if you sip water. I bought this in neutral shade so it does not makes a huge difference. But given any other colour it will fade away from centre for sure. Also it does not set on lips.
Also, if by chance you happen to wipe for face it will move and ruin your makeup. Tarte could have make this formula a little better in terms of staying and it would have been a bang on product. It comes in so many shades but formulation makes me think twice before buying other colours.

1. I would recommend this product due to wide range of colours, but please keep in mind wear ability of the product.
2. Always prep your lips by exfoliating and moisturising before putting on a matte liquid lipstick.
