Vibrating Makeup Brush ReviewWell, I don’t think you can get any more discreet than this! Pipedream makes a vibrating makeup brush that is perfect for travel or just keeping on hand in your makeup bag or purse.

The Mini-Max Vibrating Makeup Brush comes packaged in a discreet black box, pictured above. It takes three LR44 watch-style batteries, and they are included, which is nice since that’s probably not a battery size most people keep on hand.

The brush’s handle measures close to 3 inches long, with a total length of 4 inches including the bristles. At only around 3/4 of an inch in diameter, it’s small enough to fit just about anywhere. The base is a screw-off battery compartment cap with a dial on the end to turn the vibration on and control the speed. The grated texture around the edge of the control dial makes it easy to grip and turn, but I tend to inadvertently turn the vibration on whenever I replace the cap. Luckily though, this is not a problem as the motor is very quiet. Even at top speed it’s barely audible unless you hold the makeup brush close to your ears.

Like most toys with a dial control, the vibration intensity increases gradually as you turn the dial. There isn’t a lot of range between the lowest and highest speed, and the vibrations are slightly buzzy. The vibration can be felt all along the plastic handle, especially at the smooth part just under the brush. It also travels through the bristles, making this an awesome toy for tickling and teasing. Since this vibe is waterproof, cleaning it is easy with antibacterial soap and warm water or toy cleaner, and storage is no problem.

The Mini-Max Makeup Brush is an ideal product for those new to sex toys and anyone who needs something discreet that can be used for just about anything, from solo play to couple play. The vibrating bristles feel good just about anywhere, so this is a great toy for gentle, all-over body stimulation for relaxation or to jump-start foreplay. For me, the handle isn’t comfortably insertable since the battery compartment cap is squared off and has the raised ridges all around the control dial, but the handle can easily be positioned to stimulate the clitoris and labia.

This vibe would benefit from having more power. Boosting the vibration intensity would create more of a range between the slowest and fasted speed. Also, it would be nice if the handle was insertable, either by rounding off the cap so it’s smooth, or by having the option to remove the brush bristles to reveal an insertable tip underneath. But all in all, I think it’s a fun little gadget to have around.

Oh, and did I mention that it actually works very well as a makeup brush? It’s great for applying powder foundation or blush. It’s similar to a kabuki brush, only a bit smaller and the bristles are more tightly packed together.

In the time since I first reviewed this product, Pipedream has a come out with newer model of the vibrating makeup brush: Vibrating Mini Makeup Brush.

Blue Bird Bullet vibrator ReviewBabeland sent me a Blue Bird Bullet to try. This cute multi-speed vibe is made by California Exotics from body-safe, phthalate-free TPE and takes 2 AA batteries.

The Blue Bird Bullet consists of a bullet-style vibrator encased in a soft and squishy bird. The wings and nose flutter as the bullet vibrates, and the surface is slightly textured with feather-like grooves along the wings and tail in addition to barely noticeable feathers over the body.

I don’t think the texture is prominent enough to make a real difference in stimulation, but it does help keep this toy from looking more like a dolphin than bird.

This material has quite a bit of surface drag, so have plenty of your favorite water-based lube ready. While the surface doesn’t feel particularly sticky, it does attract lint.

This sex toy is not waterproof, and the way the cord attaches into the bullet makes washing it with soap and water awkward and frustrating. Products like this are the reason I keep antibacterial toy cleaneraround.

This vibe is a bit larger than more traditional bullets. It measures 4 inches beak-to-tail with a 3 inch wingspan. The tip of the bird’s beak provides targeted, pinpoint stimulation, while its body and the top curve of its head are great for broader vibrations. But the Blue Bird Bullet’s special feature is how the fluttering wings massage the labia throughout the whole experience.

The battery pack controller connects to the bullet by a thin cord measuring 30 inches, which is just long enough. The easily accessible dial control on the side of the battery pack controls the vibration intensity. At top speed, it is a pretty powerful little bullet. Luckily, it’s not all that loud. It’s audible through bed covers, but not through a closed bedroom door.

I find wired bullets like this especially well-suited for solo play. They can certainly be incorporated into partner sex as well, but using these types of vibes requires both hands, which I personally find inconvenient. Like most bullets, this one is great for clitoral stimulation, and it has the added bonus of those labia-massaging wings.

Because of the shape, it really isn’t meant for insertion. I think a Blue Bird Bullet would be an ideal choice for those looking to move up from a more basic, single-speed vibe, as well as anyone wanting to experience a soft, squishy texture and fluttering wings.

I was pleasantly surprised by this vibrator’s power, and I really like the easy dial control. There are no set speeds; it’s a gradual increase as you turn the dial up. I used it for both solo play and during sex in a variety of positions. While its size isn’t really big enough to get in the way, several times I felt as though a slightly longer cord may have been a good idea.

At least the cord is nice and thin, so it’s not all that awkward to work around. Oh, and I discovered that the vibration didn’t travel so much to the bird’s tail, so that makes a nice little handle to hold it in place.

Dual stimulation dual motor vibrator made from TPR.The Honey Bunny is a rabbit-style vibe, so it simultaneously stimulates the g-spot and clitoris, which is great for solo play or as a precursor to partner sex. Its size and shape make it rather awkward to use during vaginal intercourse, but I see no reason why the Honey Bunny couldn’t be used to stimulate the g-spot and clitoris during anal play.

The body-safe TPR material gives this vibe a very soft and squishy feel. In fact, the shaft itself is very flexible and bendy. The surface, while not exactly sticky, isn’t slick either, so this toy tends to pick up lint. I store mine in the original packaging to help keep it clean. Near the head of the shaft are two ridges, with another two located towards the base. Other than that, the surface texture is smooth. I can’t detect any smell from this toy.

I LOVE the Honey Bunny’s overall design. I find it very stylish and attractive. The lack of intimidating beads or complicated controls might appeal to those looking for their first rabbit-style vibrator to try. The shaft size is fairly substantial, with 5.25 inches of insertable length, a 1.5 inch diameter, and a girth (the width, circumference, or measurement around the outside of the shaft) of about 4.75 inches. This may be a bit large for some who are new to using sex toys, but I personally don’t think the size is at all daunting.

Okay, now down to the technical specs. The Honey Bunny has a super-simple, one button control, conveniently located in the middle of the battery compartment cap at the base of the toy. Push the button to turn the vibe on. It starts at the slowest of 3 speeds. Pushing the button takes you to the next speed, until you’ve reached the fastest speed, then you just push the button again to turn it off. That’s as easy as it gets. The downside of its basic single-button control is that both bullet vibes always operate at the same speed. This is great for anyone who enjoys equal intensity levels for both clitoral and internal stimulation.

As is typical for dual stimulation toys, this one has a rabbit-shaped cover on its small bullet attachment located towards the base. Unlike most other rabbit vibes that have a rotating shaft, the Honey Bunny has another bullet vibrator located towards the top of its shaft. So instead of feeling a twirling sensation, you get continuous vibration.

I’ve read several reviews stating this is a noisy toy. But in my opinion, it’s rather quiet, especially compared to my Rabbit Habit. Perhaps this is because I only recently acquired my Honey Bunny, whereas I’ve had my Rabbit Habit for a while, and maybe with use and age the toys get louder as the moving parts suffer wear and tear. Maybe my newer Honey Bunny is improved over the ones tested by reviewers who found the toy noisy. I really don’t know, but my Honey Bunny is quiet. In fact, I can barely hear it running on the slowest speed.

This is a pretty low-maintenance toy. Just clean with soap and warm water or your favorite toy cleaner. Unfortunately, stuff loves to stick to this toy. Even with keeping it in its original box, it’s a lint and pet hair magnet, so cleaning before and after use is necessary. But we’re doing that anyway, right?

The Honey Bunny comes in a metal box, around the size of a shoebox, with two clasps fastening the lid. There is a clear plastic window on the front displaying the toy, so not really the most discreet packaging for gift purposes. Inside the box is a soft foam insert, and the vibe nestles perfectly in the recessed cut-out. There are not any additional instructions included, but there is basic information about the toy printed on the back of the box.

Not furry little rodents, as cute as they may be, but the kind of rabbits that rotatevibrate, and stimulate. So, what’s all the buzz over these things? The truth is, they work really well for those who like simultaneous internal (G-spot) and clitoral stimulation, because rabbit vibes are dual stimulators.

Dual stimulation dual motor vibrator made from TPR.Dual action vibrator featured in "Sex and the city"Rechargeable silicone dual action vibrating stimulator with powerful independent dual motors, one in the stimulator and one in the tip.Multi functional and waterproof rabbit vibrator made of TPRRechargeable silicone dual action vibrating stimulator with powerful independent dual motors, one in the stimulator and one in the tip.
There are many to choose from, but they all work pretty much the same way. Most models contain beads or pearls that rotate as the insertable shaft moves in a circular motion. Or there may be a motor in the shaft that vibrates.

The rabbit (or butterflydolphin, whatever) is typically a soft material covering an attached bullet. As the little bunny vibrates the soft, flappy ears stimulate the clitoris.

Controls vary by model, and in some cases both motors are controlled by one button, but often the shaft and bunny each have their own control to adjust the speed or intensity independently.

Hitachi magic wand vibrator is a two-speed massager with a soft flexible head.For those new to sex toys, The Hitachi Magic Wand is often considered to be a good one to start with. Mostly because of its power and the fact that it looks nothing like stereotypical sex toys because it’s technically a “massager” not a vibrator. It’s up to the user to decide which body parts to massage.

Hitachi magic wand vibrator is a two-speed massager with a soft flexible head.

By itself, the Hitachi Magic Wand is extremely effective for external vibration massage. The head is slightly giving and mostly smooth, but for those who like some variety in their stimulation, there are textured sleeves available for the top. I’ve heard that Tenga Eggs can also be used as Hitachi sleeves.

For anyone who needs internal stimulation, there are also G-spot attachments that fit right onto the head of the Magic Wand. So, that’s the best of both worlds. Read more about the Hitachi Magic Wand in my Follow-Up Friday post about it.

Normalizing all women's experiences, Mikaya Heart in The Ultimate Guide to Orgasm for Women provides the information, permission and support women need to enhance their own fulfillment.There’s certainly no shortage of sex manuals on the market. Plenty of books out there help you figure out how to do it just about any way you want. And possibly a few you don’t. Books are great resources to help us understand how our bodies work. The better we know our bodies, the more we can enjoy them.

I realize that not everybody may be ready to explore their G-spots or anal play, and that’s fine. I have no way of knowing where everybody is in their personal journey of sexual discovery and fulfillment, but even if a topic is no interest to you now, it just might be in the near or distant future. There is inestimable value in keeping an open mind.
