This toy is made of TPR and ABS plastic. The metallic handle is ABS and the lipstick-looking end is TPR.
The pink end (which you use for simulation) feels kind of like a rubber bouncy ball. There's a slight seam running from one side of the handle to the other, but it's almost not even visible and you definitely can't feel it in use.
The surface is sort of simultaneously tacky and smooth, depending on the amount of moisture in your skin and how you're running your fingers over it. It's squishy and soft, but dense. And there's quite a bit of drag, which provides a divine amount of extra stimulation.
Unfortunately, the tackiness of the surface seems to attract both lint and stains. And it seems to hold odors occasionally, too. So I'd suggest keeping a wipe handy or something.
To me, the Be Sexy Mini Vibe looks like a cartoonish tube of lipstick. A friend of mine, however, said she thinks it looks like a Christmas light. Someone else said it resembles a balloon. Whatever it most resembles, it's sort of adorable.
The "lipstick" end is about an inch and a half long and is shaped sort of like... A balloon, I suppose. It's sort of bulbous with a dull, rounded tip.
The handle is about two inches long, with a small pink TPR push-button on the bottom to control its single speed vibration. It's shaped sort of like a tube of lipstick or the bulb holder on a Christmas light.
Unscrew the bottom and you'll find the battery compartment. Slip a single AAA battery inside, positive side down, screw the bottom back on and you're in business.
Push the button once for on, once for off. Doesn't get much easier than that.
The vibrations seem to be strongest in the center of the "lipstick", but travel nicely to the tip. They seem to disperse along the surface, making this toy better at indirect contact than pinpoint stimulation.
As for strength, I'd say this toy comes in exactly in the middle of medium and high. It's not a roaring monster, but it's not exactly quiet either. Someone in bed with you will hear it, while someone across the room might not.
It's splash proof, which means it'll probably be okay in the shower out of direct contact with the spray, but I wouldn't take it in the tub with you. It probably won't stand up to submersion.
Please use a condom when sharing between orifices and partners with this toy. Wash it between uses with an antibacterial soap. Store it without the battery in a Ziploc back or something. And be sure the washer is in place if you're using it around water. Don't forget, it's only splash proof. DO NOT submerge this toy.
This vibe comes in a little pink cardboard box with a plastic cut-out in the front. There's a cute topless chick wearing a striped tie and black hat on three sides, as well as a description of the toy. Inside, you'll find a small tube of what I assume is lube (all the writing on it is German), a booklet that talks about types of sex toys, and a pamphlet with directions.
