With a price point to satisfy even the most frugal beauty junkie, not to mention the best color payoff a girl could ask for, the E.L.F. Moisturizing Lipstick has become a fan favorite in recent years. But what you probably didn’t know is that the clear panel at the bottom of the tube is more than just a way to find the shade you’re looking for. It’s actually a secret compartment loaded with de-potted versions of your lipstick. While some believe that it’s a tinted lip balm in a matching color, it’s actually the same product. Achelle Richards, creative director of E.L.F. cosmetics, told Refinery 29, “we designed our moisturizing lipsticks to hold the lipstick formula in the base of the componentry. This feature makes it easier to color match.”
You might think having an extra bit of the same lipstick is no biggie, but the real excitement lies in the fact it’s de-potted for you: Pop the bottoms off of all your E.L.F. Moisturizing Lipsticks, stick a magnet on the bottom and place them in a pro palette. Now you can have all your lipstick shades in one place (perfect for travel), without the mess of melting them down yourself.
