5 Drugstore Alternatives to tarte's Birthday Suit

Based on 27,615 Influenster Reviews

In the world of lipstick, finding just the perfect shade of nude can be a challenge. Although tarte's Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in Birthday Suit is many a beauty fanatic's top choice for a rosy matte nude lip, it's not always an affordable one to many. 

But don't fret! We found five drugstore matte lipstick dupes that give this paint a run for its money.

L'Oréal has a number of options when it comes to mastering that perfect barely there lip, but none comes close to the au naturel look quiet like the "Nudist" shade, which boasts similar brown undertones as "Birthday Suit."

This liquid lipstick is absolutely everything I could want in a lip color. 

The applicator is amazing; it's very, very precise which allows you to get the most accurate shape of your lips, making the application of the product look absolutely flawless. 

The formulation of the product is unreal. This is by far the most long-lasting liquid lipstick I have ever owned, even when compared to all of my high-end lippies. I can put this lipstick on in the morning, go about my day, eat three meals and snacks and drinks and it still always looks absolutely perfect at the end of the day. This stuff does not budge. That does mean it is a little more difficult to remove at the end of the day, but that's a price I'm willing to pay for a long-lasting lip color. 

The only other thing I don't love about this product is that, even though it's matte and transfer-proof, it still feels just a tiny bit sticky and tacky on my lips throughout the day. No big deal since it still stays in place, but just minorly irritating. 

Lastly, the color. This is my favorite color in the entire line. It is the perfect nude for my skin tone - perfectly my lips but better. It pulls a little bit warm and it is so flattering. I get compliments every time I wear this shade. It is so perfect for every day! ...read more

NYX's Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick are hits in their own right, but the "Soft Spoken" shade is a rich mauve nude that works great for anyone looking for a nude with a cool twist.

I have both Lace Detail from their lingerie collection, as well as Soft Spoken from their liquid suede, and I love them both! Soft spoken is my go to lip for any occasion every day. They are great for mixing as well, so you can really experiment with how dark or light you want a color to be, or how bright or muted. yes they feel a little tacky, but I found that they feel less tacky if I lick my lips after they dry. Looking forward to buying more colors. With the price they are at, they make great dupes for more expensive brands! ...read more

Influenster Beauty Awards Winner 2017
Milani's Influenster Beauty Award-Winning lipstick has a variety of options for anyone look for a perfect neutral lip match. Although shades "Pretty" and "Precious" come pretty close to tarte's nearly naked hue, we're eyeing the gray rose of "Adorable" for a good match.

I spent months looking for the perfect nude lip color. I have natural- medium light skin with a yellow undertone. So looking for a neutral color is tricky. I purchased the shade adorable, and was very satisfied with it. It's a pinkish-brown color which makes it a good everyday look kind of wear. It's the 'perfect' nude, but it's definitely the best I've tried on so far. First pic is without flash, second with flash. It glides on creamy then dries up matte after around 3 seconds. Though it sort of feels very drying. Exfoliating your lips before AND after is a must. Just like every matte lip tint out there, if your lips aren't prepped properly, the formula would accentuate every crack and line on your lips. The smell is very sweet, bordering on vanilla. It doesn't linger though. Wear time is decent enough. Doesn't wipe away when you scrub it off, so you'll need an oil based remover (like vaseline). Only con is my lips feel very dry after I wear it. And when you dab your lips with tissue/ a dry towel, it would pick up particles from it. ...read more

Maybelline's Vivid Mattes Collection have been some of the strongest matte lipstick contenders in the drugstore game. Opt for shade "Grey Envy" for a greige-toned nude option for your lip look.

I personally really love these matte lippies! When you first apply them, they're NOT matte. But once they have set on your lips for a few seconds they do dry matte. I recommend not using too much product when you first apply the color to your lips. I feel like the applicator is really generous with the product and gives too much product. Wipe the applicator off on the container and then apply. If you feel like the first application wasn't too pigmented, then once that has dried you can apply another application, just make sure to wipe off the applicator so you don't get too much product.

As for staying power, I really feel like this lippie stays on my lips all day. I can eat and drink and still have product on my lips by the end of the day.

These lippies are more creamy than your average matte lipstick, and I really like that about them! They dry but they don't dry so much that they're caked into your lips. I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about - when you're wearing a matte lipstick and you feel like you can't talk because you're lipstick is so dry. Yeah, I don't have that problem with these lippies. ...read more

I was super excited when I got this in my elf voxbox!! I already own 2 colors and I knew how great there were. This was no exception. The product is phenomenal. It applies so smoothly. The applicator is easy to use to get that precise application. The color is beautiful on every skin tone. It's matte but not drying at all! It's definitely a must have in your matte lipstick collection. It's highly pigmented and long lasting. Which is exactly what we all need for this holiday season. No need to retouch throughout the day. And last but not least it's super affordable. For the price you would pay for a Mac matte lipstick u can get 5 of these!! This is definitely a steal! ...read more
