extremely useful review


The Mia by LELO is a fantastic little lipstick vibe, which has quickly become a favorite of mine! It is designed to be used on the clitoris. It's not really intended for more than maybe shallow vaginal teasing and definitely not intended for anal play. Small and super slippery, be sure not to lose it!

Once it is placed on your sweet spot, it can be held stationary or moved around. The tip can be used to trace circles around the clit, flick the clit, rub the clit, or even tap the clit, any of which make for a delicious sensation. It should be said that the pointed tip can become pokey when you are at your most sensitive. Sensitive users may prefer to press the side of the Mia against their clitoris, but I love the pinpoint vibrations myself. Just remember to be gentle with yourself or your partner. The Mia would work well paired with a G-spot toy inserted vaginally. Not everyone can multitask, but if you can manage, the Mia works wonders in coordination with the Gigi, also by LELO.

Mia is great for teasing those sensitive, erogenous zones. Works quite well on the nipples!

While I usually use the Mia for solo play, it works well with a partner as well. You can let your partner take control and tease you by switching the controls unpredictably. You can hold it in place while being entered from behind for a little extra oomph. Or instead you can use it on yourself while performing oral on your partner, so that you both feel great at the same time.

You could bring it along for travel, since it has a handy locking feature and is USB-rechargeable. Quiet enough to be used when other people are nearby, such as in a shared apartment or a semi-public place.

Any way you use it, Mia makes for a fun time!

Material / Texture

The Mia is made of plastic with silicone buttons. Plastic is an 8 on the Eden safety scale. It is firm and smooth, non-porous and phthalate-free. They toy is rigid, has no give to it, and will not bend. It has no smell or taste once it has been cleaned. The toy has is smooth, and glides over the skin gracefully - meaning it has no drag. There is no texture to this toy, making it great for beginners.

Design / Shape / Size

The design of the Mia is breathtaking. It is elegant and sophisticated. It looks somewhat like, but does not exactly resemble a high-end tube of lipstick. It is slightly larger than the average lipstick, but not enough to make it unbelievable. It is very discreet. Even uncapped, it just looks like a large flash drive. Nothing screams 'sex toy' here.

It is small enough to be carried around in a purse or a pocket and is fairly lightweight. Also perfect for travel because of the travel lock, noise level, and USB-rechargeable capabilities.

It looks gorgeous, too. Mine is a rich black color, with a silver band which is shiny but not perfectly reflective. It looks expensive for a toy or a lipstick. The shape is sleek and streamlined. One end, the cap, is slanted and has the LELO logo printed on it. The other end, the tip which is intended for use, comes to a point. This point is responsible for the scrumptious pinpoint stimulation and also the pokey, pinching feeling I sometimes experience when my clitoris is more sensitive. I would not let this discourage you, as the point brings so much more joy than it does discomfort, and if you remember to be gentle, you will rarely run into any problems. However, if you prefer broad coverage to pinpoint accuracy, this is not the toy for you. Try the LELO Siri instead.

Perfect for beginners as well as advanced users! I would recommend it because it is discreet enough that no one will feel embarrassed by owning it or having it be found, the size is small enough for those who would be intimidated by larger toys, and it has no texture to speak of. All in all, a simple and beautiful design.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Mia is very powerful for its size, but does not provide earth-shaking vibrations. Power queens need look elsewhere. I would put it at a high three vrooms on the scale, meaning it is moderate in intensity and suitable for most people's needs. While I tend to use it on the highest setting, I find it is just enough to bring me to orgasm without the help of another person or toy. This should be enough for most people, but if you need serious power, it may not work for you.

The vibrations are most powerful in the tip, though they vibrate through most of the toy, so they may make your hand tingly after extended use. This toy is fairly quiet, even on the highest setting. I put it at two bees, meaning it is a soft white noise that can be heard through covers, but not through a closed door.

This toy is not waterproof, so be careful with fluids. Not limited to lubrication (natural or artificial), water, or cleansers.

The controls are easy to use. There are two silicone buttons, one + and one - with a light between them. The light glows white when the buttons are pressed or held and blinks red as a warning when the battery is low. There are 10 constant vibration settings ranging from a light flutter to deep and rumbly. To turn on the toy, press up on the + button. Holding it or pressing it again will make it go higher. Pressing or holding down the - button will make it go lower. Once you are at the maximum intensity, 10, you can press and hold the + to start the first of three programmed vibration patterns. They all pulsate. The first is bzzzz bzzzz bzzz. Pressing and holding again will take you to the second one, which is bzzz bzzz bzzz. This one is a little faster. Press and hold the button one last time to go to the third one, which is bzz bzz bzz. This is the fastest pulsation setting. Pressing the - at any time during any of the patterns will return you to constant vibration at the maximum level. When you are done, you hold the - to turn it all the way off. It will gradually decrease. Then, to lock the toy, press and hold both buttons until the light turns off. To unlock it, do the same until the light turns on.

The toy is USB rechargeable, which is very convenient if you have a desktop computer. It can be used with a laptop, but it is a pain, because it will only charge when the screen is on and the computer is running. This means you have to be using it to charge it, or your computer will snooze as mine does, and stop charging the toy. There is no way to charge this in a wall outlet.

Another thing to consider is how long the charge lasts. Since it is not the strongest vibe, I use it on the highest setting. This cuts the usage time considerably. It is still enough to get me through one or two play sessions, but it will not last as long as advertised unless it is on the lowest setting.

Care and Maintenance

The Mia is fairly easy to care for. As I mentioned, it is not waterproof, so be careful with fluids. I would recommend spraying it with toy cleanser and wiping it down with a wet washcloth, though you could use toy wipes instead. When cleaning, pay careful attention to around the buttons and in the crack between the toy and the cap. It is easiest to remove the cap and carefully wipe the silicone that surrounds the USB charging port. It can get crusty here if you do not clean it thoroughly. Though plastic is safe to wash with soap and water, I would not recommend it at all, since the toy is small and it would be hard to keep water away from the buttons and the USB charging port. I store it in the satin drawstring bag it comes in. This keeps it safe and clean. It is compatible with water-based lube only. Silicone-based lube will damage the toy. Use lube sparingly. Charge Mia monthly.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Mia comes packaged in a box with an outer sleeve. The sleeve is the color of your toy on the front and adorned with the LELO logo, and shows a picture of the toy and information on the back. This means it is not discreet. The box within definitely is, however! The sleek and sexy matte black box has no decorations except for the LELO logo on the lid. This box is great for storage and would make a nice gift as long as the outer sleeve was removed. Inside is the Mia in a molded plastic tray and underneath you will find the manual, the warranty information, a USB extension cord, sample pack of water-based lube, and a satin drawstring bag.

Personal comments

I love my Mia, and while I now have many other toys, it is still one of my favorites! It is one of my go-to toys, and despite not being the strongest I own, it still gets me there every time. I would recommend one of these to anyone who likes pinpoint clitoral stimulation. With the warranty, it is a great investment and well worth the price!


This quickly became one of my favorite toys, and one I still use frequently.
Follow-up commentary
Even though I have had my Mia for several months, and now own many other vibes, this little toy still ranks in at #1 in my personal collection. This toy gets used more frequently than any of my others. I have had no problems with it and it is still under warranty. If it died after the warranty expired, I would definitely buy a new one. I have re-read my review and I still agree with everything I said. I would, in retrospect mention another con that I had forgotten to add at the time: being a hard plastic toy, the motor can make a rattling sound when pressure is applied, though this only happens on the highest levels. It has done this since I got it, and it is a property of the material, I believe, and not a flaw. The sound is not loud, and I still put it at 2 bees. Thought I would just include it now. I still put it at 3 vrooms. The toy has held up well to frequent use, and it is my absolute favorite right now. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys pinpoint stimulation.

    I like the fact that if can be charged by usb I go through so many batteries with other toys

    I love rechargeable toys! However Mia is my least favorite to charge, since I only have a laptop and it hibernates and stops charging the toy unless I am actively using the computer.
