Miss September Falls Short!

The Birthstone Bullet is a really ho-hum kind of vibrator. I can't say that I absolutely love it or hate it. It does exactly what it's designed to do. It did get me off, but it isn't the kind of toy that makes me see stars. It's a really pretty little toy that I'm glad I own, but I can say that it won't get rotated to the front of my toy box often. It just doesn't do anything for me that I couldn't get from a more exciting product.

Use

The Birthstone by Evolved Novelties is a small, bullet-shaped vibrator best used for clitoral stimulation. It's too small for decent vaginal penetration or for g-spot stimulation and it doesn't offer a flared base so it's not safe for anal penetration. This toy is best suited for users of any experience level who appreciate toys that don't have a lot of power.

There might not be a whole lot of power vibrating out of this toy, but it does offer a certain something when pressed against various erogenous zones or other stimulating body parts.

Material / Texture

The Birthstone Bullet is made entirely out of a smooth, rigid plastic earning it an 8 out of 10 on Eden's Material Safety Scale. There is no texture to this toy, but there is a 'sapphire' base that is made of raised plastic ridges. The smooth feel of this toy can be used by beginners and advanced users alike.

This vibe is completely tasteless, however, there is a faint plastic scent to it when held directly under the nose. The scent doesn't linger on your hands after use so the plastic smell doesn't cause any problems.

The Birthstone Bullet is made of a non-porous, food-grade material. It's also hypo-allergenic, Latex free and phthalates free.
    • Light odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The Birthstone is designed as a classic, mini bullet vibrator. The pointier end of the bullet is white plastic leading down to the blue (sapphire) screw on base. There is a white ring dial base control leading down into the "sapphire" gem on the end. It's 4 inches in length, 3/4 of an inch wide and 2 1/4 inches around.

The bullet is so slim and small that it couldn't be anything but discreet. It's really easy to tuck into a purse or a pocket for travelling purposes.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Birthstone vibrator is a simple, dial-base bullet controlled by a single triple A battery. The dial base turns the vibrator on and lets you gradually increase from a slow, steady vibration to a faster, steady vibration. There is no variety in patterns or pulsations, just fast or slow vibration. The fastest this toy gets would be better described as a medium speed.

The base is fairly difficult to turn, almost as if it's getting stuck. It's really inconvenient to try to turn the dial while your using the vibe. Because this is such a small toy, in order to change the speed you have to stop what you're doing. For me, that just really messes up the rhythm and it can be difficult to get it back.

The bullet is completely waterproof. Be sure that the cap is screwed on tightly and it's able to accompany you to the shower or bath.

The best thing about this tiny toy is that it's so quiet. If I couldn't feel it vibrating, I would have no idea it was on. It was barely audible when held at arms length and undetectable through closed doors.
    • Discreet sound
    • Not enough variety
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

Since this bullet is made of plastic, it's really easy to care for. It can be cleaned easily with with hot water and antibacterial soap or by wiping it clean with an isopropyl alcohol wipe. Plastic doesn't collect lint so it can simply be wiped dry with a towel or cloth.

This toy can be stored anywhere that you store toys. I keep mine in the original packaging just to separate it from the other toys in my box.

Plastic-made toys are compatible with oil, silicone and water-based lubes so just grab your favorite and have a great time!
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Birthstone Bullet comes packaged in a small, clear plastic box that boasts it as Miss September. It's not discreet packaging because you can see the toy plainly through the packaging. There are no instructions for use or care included with this product. The box could easily be used as a great way to tuck this toy away in a drawer or toy box.





    • Good for storage
    • Minimal

Experience

I used this toy a few times by myself. It's a decent toy for what it is, but it doesn't work the way I need it to. It got me off, but it wasn't earth-shattering. There just isn't enough power in this toy. If you like weak toys with no variety, then I highly recommend the Birthstone Bullet to you, but if you like toys with more power and variety, then I suggest you look elsewhere for a better product.
Follow-up commentary
I've tucked this toy back in its box and I know that I'll probably never pull it out again. I need more excitement about a toy when I use it, or it'll end up in the box underneath all the toys I actually use.

It's still a really pretty little toy, but that's all it is for me; A really pretty novelty item.
