Aldi shoppers who bragged about finding a ‘secret lip gloss compartment’ hidden in the store’s lipsticks are being warned to STOP using 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 the tube apart to reveal the same colored substance.
- He published his find in a Facebook post that drew dozens of comments.
- The liquid is, in fact, an indicator of the color of the lipstick and should not be applied
Beauty enthusiasts have raved about what they claim is a “secret lip gloss” hidden at the bottom of Aldi’s Lacura lipsticks, when in fact it’s an entirely different chemical that’s not suitable for use as makeup.
Australian Aldi shoppers have posted on Facebook bragging about the find and sharing snaps of them taking apart their lipsticks to reveal a ‘lip gloss jar’ at the base of the lipstick.
But Daily Mail Australia can confirm that the contents of the canister are potentially toxic and should never be used as it is only intended to show customers what color the lipstick is.
Beauty enthusiasts have been raving about what they consider to be a “secret lip gloss” hidden at the bottom of Aldi Lacura lipstick, but it’s not what they think.
The Brisbane mum took to Facebook to share how she found a secret lip gloss container in the base of her lipstick after taking apart the packaging.
‘My mind is blown!!! Am I the last to notice that there is lip gloss on the bottom of Aldi lipstick? the Brisbane mother wrote in a social media post with images of the beauty purchase stripped down to reveal a shiny substance at the bottom.
Commenters were divided, with some stunned by the find. Others were skeptical.
‘I did not know that! I grabbed mine and opened it and sure enough. Thanks for sharing!’ said a makeup lover.
‘Hope for? Bought a few over the years and never got into this,” wrote another, while a third said, “*quickly goes to get my lipstick.”
A shopper asked how to access the ‘lip gloss’ to which the original poster replied: ‘I just broke the stupid thing trying to take it off…it actually comes off easily if you do it right.’
However, many rightly cautioned against using the liquid at the bottom of the lipstick tube as a lip gloss.
“I guess it’s not meant to be a lip gloss and just show off the color of the lipstick.” If it was lip gloss, they would have made it easy to 1. open it and 2. take it out without having to use a lip brush. I would be very careful,’ one woman advised.
Daily Mail Australia can confirm that the substance in the base of Aldi’s packaging is not suitable for the application and is merely an indicator of the color of the product for display purposes only.
“Some brands confirmed that yes, they are lip glosses and some brands said ‘no, it’s just to show off the color and it’s not safe to use’. Just be careful as it varies,” said a second.
“I looked for it and found it too, but it’s super sticky, almost like glue!” reported a third.
“OMG I’m always showing people ‘I love this lipstick, look how much product is in it’ hahahaha,” admitted a fourth.
