Though it's not exactly new on the market, Birthday Suit is one of those shades that has gained in popularity mostly in the last years, ever since it's all about the 90's inspired mauve-brown nude shades and it has been on my mind for quite a while because I adore matte finishes, but I was vary of actually trying it, since these type of shades look vastly different on a pasty little Snow White like me than on someone with a medium skin tone. Still, I decided to take risk and get it despite my concerns. It ended up looking far better on me than I expected and I've been reaching for it very often.
Texture: The formula is strange and different from what I'm used to. It starts as a very light oily liquid and I was kind of concerned about how smudgy this will be because it moves a lot from the start, but after about 3-5 minutes it's completely set to a perfect, "Instagram-matte" finish. This probably has the best proper matte finish I've tried. However, it does feel like a film on the lips from the start and it can feel tight, so avoid this if you have dry lips because it will feel very uncomfortable to you, as it is the driest such lipstick I've tried, but to me it's perfectly fine. Once it set it doesn't transfer or it transfers only in mirror traces.

Colour: Birthday Suit is a medium nude shade or a rosy-mauve-beige slightly brown shade. I was really concerned it will look beige-brown on me, but it turned out to be so much better than expected and close to what I've seen on Pinterest images. The thing about this shade is that it changes to much as it wears, it's beige at application and with time it oxidises into a more rosy, darker shade. I sometimes feel it's different every hour, but I'm sure it has a lot to do with the light as well, sometimes it looks more beige, sometimes more rosy, basically I think that any swatch I can make will always be just an approximation.
