E.L.F. Moisturizing Lipstick Has a Hidden Feature
Finding the exact lipstick I want to wear for the day can be quite the struggle. Ones with the shade visible at the bottom of the tube, like the E.L.F. Moisturizing Lipstick, are my saviors when I’m in a rush and there are dozens I’m sorting through. But that little colored cube on the bottom of the E.L.F. lipstick doesn’t just function as an on-the-go color identifier. It’s also a detachable lip balm look-alike. I know—I’ll give you a second to let that sink in. My mind is blown, too.
Zofie, also known as @spoopykittten to her 13,400 Twitter followers, made the discovery yesterday and posted a tweet captioned, “THE BOTTOMS OF ELF LIPSTICKS POP OFF AND ARE LIP BALMS???” She attached pictures of two E.L.F. Moisturizing Lipstick tubes, with and without the bottoms on, as well as a swatch of one of the balms to prove it. It looks like a sheer version of the lipstick. So far, the tweet has been retweeted more than 1,600 times and liked by more than 3,400 users. It’s safe to say we weren’t the only ones who didn’t notice this hidden feature.

Other users noticed that more lipstick brands have the same hidden feature, like L.A. Girl and Makeup Revolution. I tried a couple of lipsticks of my own and noticed the Sonia Kashuk Satin Luxe Lip Colors also have detachable pots of color, too.
You can get your own E.L.F. Moisturizing Lipstick now on elfcosmetics.com and try the attached pot of color out for yourself. Just like the brand’s other products, like their gorgeous clear brushes, these lipsticks are superinexpensive—and awesome quality—at just $3. We reached out to E.L.F. to find out more info about the hidden feature and will update this post when we hear back.
