1. An apparatus for holding a cosmetics matter comprising:
a product holder for holding the cosmetics matter;
the product holder lies and fits slidably within a sheath;
the sheath has a channel that runs along a longitudinal axis of the sheath;
a button slider slidably engages the sheath;
the button slider has a first button slider end and a second button slider end;
the first button slider end and the second button slider end lie perpendicularly with respect to one another;
the second button slider end is perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the sheath;
the second button slider end engages the product holder;
the first button slider end slidably engages the sheath;
the channel of the sheath has a waved channel surface, with a first channel surface elevation and a second channel surface elevation;
the button slider has at least one triangular boss portion, which engages the waved channel surface;
wherein the button slider allows a consumer to apply a force along the longitudinal axis of the sheath; the force is translated from the first button slider end to the second button slider end and to the product holder along the longitudinal axis of the sheath so that the product holder can be moved from a first product elevation to a second product elevation.
