Aldi shoppers who boasted about finding a ‘secret lip gloss compartment’ hidden in the store’s lipsticks are warned to STOP wearing it immediately: ‘It’s not what you think’
- An Aldi shopper claimed she found a secret lip gloss at the bottom of her lipstick
- The beauty lover took apart the tube to reveal an identically-colour substance
- She posted her find in a post to Facebook which drew in dozens of comments
- The liquid is in fact an indicator of the lipstick colour and should not be applied
Beauty enthusiasts have been raving about what they deemed to be a ‘secret lip gloss’ hidden at the bottom of Aldi Lacura lipsticks – but it’s not what they think it is.
Australian Aldi shoppers have posted on Facebook boasting about the find and sharing snaps of them taking their lipsticks apart to reveal a ‘lip gloss pot’ at the base of the lipstick.
But Daily Mail Australia can confirm the product in pot is not suitable to wear on the face in any way, is a different – and potentially dangerous – formula to the lipstick and is only there to display to customers what colour the makeup is.

The Brisbane mum took to Facebook to share how she found an secret lip gloss container at the base of her lipstick after taking the packaging apart
‘My mind is blown!!! Am I the last one to figure out there’s lip gloss at the bottom of the Aldi lipstick?’ the Brisbane mum wrote in a social media post with images of the beauty buy taken apart to reveal a gloss-like substance at the bottom.
Commenters were divided with some amazed at the find. Others were sceptical.
‘I did not know that! I just grabbed mine and opened it up and sure enough. Thank you for sharing!,’ one makeup lover said.
‘Wait what? I’ve bought a few over the last couple of years and never twigged into this,’ another wrote while a third said: ‘*quickly goes to find my lipstick’.
A shopper asked how to access the ‘lip gloss’ to which the original poster replied: ‘I have just about broken the stupid thing trying to get it off…it actually comes off easily if you do it right’.
Many did warn against using the liquid at the bottom of the lipstick tube as lip gloss however.
‘My guess is that it’s not meant to be lip gloss and to show the colour of the lipstick only. If it was lip gloss they would have made it easier to 1. open it and 2. To get it out without having to use a lip brush. I would be very careful,’ one woman advised.

‘Some brands confirmed yes they are lip gloss and some brands said ‘no it’s just to show the colour and is not safe to use’. Just be careful since it varies,’ said a second.
‘I just looked and found it too, but it’s super sticky, almost like glue!’ a third reported.
‘Omg I’m always showing people like ‘I love this lippy, look how much product is in it’ ahahaha,’ a fourth admitted.
