I got the Incognito Lipstick Vibe so I could stick it in my purse and maybe have some fun on the go. I happen to be a sucker for things that look like something they aren’t. Back in the 90’s when I was just a kiddo, I remember the local new station running a story on compartments used to hide crystal meth. One in particular that caught my attention was fake chapstick. I remember wanting one so bad, not to hold drugs, but just because it was so cool that you could hide random stuff in there!
Initially, I envisioned a sleek toy perfectly made for a sexy pick me up if I were having a mid-day slump, but after using it, I can safely say that you shouldn’t use this in public unless you want to draw attention to yourself.
I’m not sure why, but the toy box features two incredibly large-titted anime girls, (one on each side). It has absolutely nothing to do with the toy, unless this vibrator is symbolic of hyper-femininity and unrealistic portrayals of the female anatomy, but I sincerely doubt that.
The Incognito Lipstick Vibe is made of plain, simple plastic. Unfortunately, it’s pretty apparent. Granted, from the outside, it looks like lipstick, but it doesn’t look anything like lipstick from the Revlon or MAC counter. It looks cheap, like the lipstick from the dollar store or a kid’s toy (which this obviously is not).
In theory (because it’s made of plastic), you could use any type of lube with this toy, but it seems like a bad, and unnecessary course of action. The O-ring is ineffective, so lube could easily eek its way through into the battery compartment, which would be a bitch to clean.
The vibe is fairly simple to clean. It can be cleaned with antibacterial soap and hot water or by wiping it down with Isopropyl alcohol. It should not, however, be submerged in water. This toy has an itty-bitty O-ring which does nothing to protect the toy from water. This toy is NOT waterproof.
Size,Weight, & Dimensions:
The vibe is around the size of your average tube of lipstick, but maybe a little taller. It is 3.75” long and has a 2.75” circumference. With a battery inside, the toy has too much weight to pass for normal lipstick, but empty, it feels close to a normal weight of a lipstick, but maybe a little bit too light. Here's a visual reference comparing the lipstick to some things you might find in my purse (when I carry one).
The vibe has a dial-base which is very easy to use. Simply remove the lid, unscrew the top from the base, insert a AAA battery and then screw the top back on. There’s a sticker in place that tells you the controls ON, OFF, and OPEN. The sticker is easily removed and leaves little residue behind. If the arrow is lined up with the middle, it’s off. When it’s off, a twist to the left turns it on to its only setting, but a twist to the right opens the vibe to reveal the battery compartment.
The vibe potency is fairly strong. It’s not the strongest I’ve experienced, but it’s by no means weak. It is, however, shrill and buzzy. It is best suited for clit or nipple stimulation. I would strongly advise against inserting this anywhere in your body.
You shouldn’t leave a battery inside a toy, but if you were to do so, the toy shouldn’t turn on because of the lid which prevents the controls from being jostled around.
When the control is in the off position, the top section of the vibrator does feel like it’s securely in place. Granted, this really isn’t a problem if the lid is on, but the lid does appear to lose grip over time, so it’s something to keep in mind.
I’ve noticed that this toy seems to age quickly (also note on the box it only promises a 90 day warranty). I’ve only had it for two or three months, but the metallic paint on the tube (the section which is visible without the cap) chips off with repeated use, meaning every time you twist it to turn it on or off.
I advise against using this toy in public because it definitely sounds like a vibrator. If you can’t stifle the urge and you don’t want to get caught, put your feet up and hopefully the stranger that just walked into the bathroom will leave you alone.
If someone asks to borrow your lipstick, tell them you’re sick with something nasty that they don’t want to catch.
