Advantages of Lipstick Vibrators
The best lipstick vibrators, like the best finger vibrators, the best vibrating panties, best bullet vibrators, and the best butterfly vibrators, are designed to be discreet. Apart from that, they have more advantages we will highlight below:
- Super discreet
- Portable and concealable
- Elegant and stylish
- Perfect for clitoral stimulation
- Great gift option
How to use them
Even though lipstick vibrators are small in size, we recommend using lube with them
Since lipstick vibrators are not your regular vibrators, you might not know how best to use them. Below are some tips/steps for using a lipstick vibrator:
Step 1 — Apply plenty of water-based lubricant to the vibrator
Step 2 — Turn on the vibrator and explore the sensitive areas of the body such as the clitoris, nipples, and figure out what works for you.
Step 3 — Once you find a “sweet spot”, work the vibrator on it until you climax, preferably.
Step 4 — Involve a partner if you want to spice things up.
How to Pick the Best Lipstick Vibrator
As we suggested earlier, certain factors should guide your choice of a lipstick vibrator. We will dissect all of those factors below:
Design is perhaps the most important consideration when looking to buy a lipstick vibrator. By now, you know that lipstick vibrators are known for their unique designs that mimic actual lipsticks. The idea is to hide your fun toy in plain sight without anyone suspecting a thing.
Of course, we made sure that all of the vibrators we have picked look much like lipsticks, but some mimic actual lipsticks better than the others. For example, the Lelo Mia™ 2 vibrator sports an unmistakable lipstick design that is both sleek and discreet.
Likewise, the Tenga Iroha Lipstick Vibrator boasts a realistic lipstick design that looks very much like a beautiful shade of coral lipstick. Ultimately, your focus should be on opting for a lipstick vibrator that is very discreet and won’t be found out easily by prying eyes.
Vibration patterns and speeds
Lipstick vibrators are gentle devices that usually feature several patterns and intensity levels
With vibrators, even lipstick variants, vibration is unarguably one of the most important features. Most lipstick vibrators feature multiple vibration patterns and speeds that allow you to customize vibrations to your taste. After all, one size never fits all. Most times, the more the vibration functions, the more the pleasure options you have to explore.
With multiple vibration options, you have a great chance to end up with a befitting vibration pattern and speed. That makes vibrators like the CalExotics Hide & Play and the Honey Play Box Bisous attractive choices, thanks to their more than seven vibration options.
However, having too many vibration modes can be a problem for some people. If you are in that category, a lipstick vibrator like the Tenga Iroha, which offers three vibration patterns, may be the ideal choice.
Lipstick vibrators are all about discreetness, so it’s always a disappointment when you find a loud one. No one else but you (and your partner) should know what you are up to. No doubt, a loud vibrator can give you away. Therefore, you must be concerned about the noise level of the lipstick vibrator you are going for.
During our testing process, the Lelo Mia™ 2 and the We-Vibe Tango X lipstick vibrators impressed us the most with their whisper-quiet operations.
If you don’t have the luxury of testing your vibrator before buying it, you might find it difficult to know how loud it is. In that case, read user reviews on top online stores. Those reviews can provide you with firsthand information on a product.
Length and weight
Generally, lipstick vibrators are used to stimulate the clitoris and other external sensitive spots, so the length is not usually a big deal. However, some are designed for penetration, making length important. Also, length can contribute to the discreetness of a lipstick vibrator. Unsurprisingly, all the products on our list are less than 5 inches.
Ultimately, the choice is on your hands; whether you want a 4.4-inch Lelo Mia™ 2 for penetration or a 4-inch Honey Play Box Bisous that offers the clitoral stimulation you want.
Materials are big parts of all vibrators, including lipstick vibrators. They determine how safe and durable vibrators are. ABS plastic and silicone are the safest and most hypoallergenic materials in the industry and it’s no surprise most, if not all, of the products on our list are made of these materials. The Lelo Mia™ 2 and We-Vibe Tango X are two good examples of such vibrators.
Whether you are using a rechargeable lipstick vibrator or a battery-powered one, working time is an important factor you should consider. No one wants a vibrator that works for 30 minutes and goes off. That surely takes away from the fun. So, the longer the working time, the better.
For example, the two hour-working time of the Vibease Smart Lipstick Vibrator makes it very adequate. Also, the 5-hour working time the Tenga Iroha offers is impressive even though it doesn’t use a rechargeable battery. We recommend any vibrator that works as long as possible before you need to recharge or change the battery.
Most lipstick vibrators have USB charger included, in just about 2 hours you get fully charged device
If you are opting for a rechargeable lipstick vibrator, you should consider its charging time. You don’t want to pick a vibrator that takes forever to attain full charge.
You should not go for a vibrator that has a longer charging time than working time. Rather, opt for a vibe that offers a generous charging time-working time ratio. For example, the 1.5-hour charging time for the two-hour working time that the We-Vibe Tango X and the Vibease Smart lipstick vibrators offer.
Extra features are not the most important considerations but they are not without any importance. Extra features such as app compatibility (like that of the Vibease Smart Lipstick Vibrator), storage pouch/box, waterproof design, lubricant, can give you great value for your money.
