Recently, makeup lovers everywhere discovered E.L.F. lipstick's super-secret compartment, and their minds were blown.

The bottoms of the lipsticks' pop off, revealing a whole other product.

Lip balm? Extra lipstick? Everyone is completely freaking out about it.

But no, the cosmetic company wasn't hiding this extra beauty. Instead, according to the company, it's merely a sample of that particular color.

"We designed our moisturizing lipsticks to hold the lipstick formula in the base of the componentry. This feature makes it easier to color match, and we love that it's been a surprise and delight for many of our fans," said creative director Achelle Richards.

Still, our minds are blown.
