Review: Lovehoney Oh! Lipstick Vibrator

Lovehoney Oh! Lipstick VibratorWhen I volunteered for this product I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but my first impressions upon arrival were good. I was particularly pleased with the presentation, in this cute pink box with heart detailing. It’s feminine in design, as one may expect from a lipstick vibrator, but this also makes it non-intimidating and friendly for beginners and couples. The box does not show any images of the vibrator, which adds to the discretion theme that this toy has going on.

The Oh! Lipstick Vibrator is made from a sturdy ABS plastic which is extremely smooth to the touch. It is finished with a gloss, which adds to the aesthetic and makes it look more realistic, but this finish also makes it slippery once water-based lubricant is added into the mix. It’s comfortable to use and hold other than that though. It’s unfortunately not completely waterproof, so it cannot be submerged in the bath or shower, but it is splash-proof, so can be rinsed quickly after use with a spritz of toy cleaner, providing the base is in place firmly and the cap is screwed on tightly.

Lovehoney Oh! Lipstick VibratorAs you might expect from an inexpensive toy such as this, its battery operated. It takes one N battery, which Lovehoney kindly include. I’m very thankful they decided against watch batteries as they’re a pain, but the type they did go for aren’t the easiest to find and they don’t have a great lifespan, so I would advise you to stock up on batteries if this is a toy you decide to purchase. To gain access to the battery compartment you need to pull off the cap and then untwist the base of the vibrator. It will then be revealed, where the paper disc on top will need to be removed before placing the base back on. It will not work until this process is done and the base is back on firmly.

Once the battery is in position, you can press the singular button on the base to begin the vibrations. It’s a single speed vibrator, so there are no other settings to scroll through, leaving the button to simply turn the toy off again. I was actually very surprised when I turned this petite product on for the first time as I was expecting some dull, weak and uninviting vibrations. Make-up vibrators don’t have the best of reputations, often known as being a disappointment, but this one surprisingly has a decent amount of strength for its size and power source. It’s not blow-the-roof-off powerful, but for its stature, it’s almost impressive.

I will admit that I usually see toys like this as gimmicky rather than functional, but I could see the potential in this being of use to some people. I know that something like this would have caught my attention during my early days of toy use. It has surface-level buzzy vibrations that don’t have enough strength behind them to make me orgasm, but a first time toy user or extremely sensitive clitoris owner may appreciate that it’s not super powerful.

It’s not as quiet as I expected it to be, but the noise does seem to lessen upon contact with the body. It can be heard from the next room if it’s laying on a flat surface, so beware of that if you’re putting it down for a while during a session. I think background music and a closed-door should cover the sounds it makes otherwise. It’s not the first toy I’d think of in terms of noise discretion, but it’s an option I’d put out there, especially if it looking discreet is of importance to you.

Overall, I think this vibe is cute, fun and a great cheeky gift. It’s the perfect size to use during sex and is ideal for clitoral stimulation due to the slanted tip being able to provide precision, but it’s not just limited to this use. It can be used on the vulva, nipples, thighs and glans too. The vibrations do seem to dull slightly upon firm contact, so I’d suggest power queens look elsewhere, but for those who want something discreet in appearance, buzzy and small to travel with, I’d give it a shot.
