Yesterday, while swatching the craziest shades of a new drugstore lipstick on Lipstick Roulette, a weekly Facebook Live Allure editors do, we noticed something major. The NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipstick has a secret compartment. Like a revolving bookcase that leads to a hidden room, there’s more to this under-$8 lipstick than meets the eye.

Late last year, the Internet absolutely freaked out after some noticed her E.L.F. lipstick had a little something extra. The colored square on the cap of the tube popped off. Inside, there was extra product for quick color matching. Well, the NYX Pin-Up Pout Lipsticks have the same hidden feature. The circular colored top on the cap, which shows what color is inside the tube, can be disconnected (with a little force, might I add). Inside, you’ll find a little pot of color.

In the Facebook Live, we noticed that the shade is a bit lighter than the actual lipstick bullet. Also, it has a bit more shine to it. You can use the secret color on top of the lipstick for a glossy effect. (On its own, the lipstick has a creamy satin finish.) Or you can just use the hidden gloss for a more sheer wash of color. For $7.99 at your local drugstore, that’s a lot of bang for your buck. However, if you hop the lipstick right this second, you’ll be able to get it for $4.80. A huge sale is running on NYX lippies until February 20 on nyxcosmetics.com.
