Yeah, This Made Me Shiver!!

This is one of my favorite bullets, and I own a lot. It is inexpensive, fun looking, SUPER QUIET, and powerful. Combine that with 10 different settings and you've got a great toy.
So quiet!
Multiple Settings
Great Color
Be nice to add an up/down on settings so you could go to previous without cycling through all.

extremely useful review


This is a bullet style vibrator that works best for clitoral stimulation but could work all over the body, as long as it is not inserted, because the only method for retrieval is the power cord and it could possibly come out of the bullet.

In addition to the clitoris, you could use it around the vagina or anus (outside only) or on nipples or even testicles.

It is great for partner play or by yourself. Because the bullet itself is small, it is not intimidating or annoying to use with a partner. That also makes it a great first toy.

Since it is a bullet and you will have the bullet itself in one hand and the controller in the other, I think the easiest way to use it is on your bed, but you could also easily use it standing up or in various other positions.

It notes on the back of the box that this should not be used when bathing or in the shower because there is no seal around the battery compartment at all to keep the water out.

This vibe is SO quiet!! If someone is in the same room as you, they could probably hear it, but if they are across the hall or through a wall, they shouldn't hear it! That makes this a great option for people living with roommates or in a dorm.

Material / Texture

This toy, both the bullet and the controller, are made out of a hard, glossy plastic. Mine in particular is the pink color and it is gorgeous. It is a bright, candy pink.

The plastic is totally smooth with no texture at all. It can be pleasurable to any user, a beginner or someone more experienced with toys.

When you add a little lubricant, the plastic gets super slick! All kinds of lubricant are compatible with this toy.

There is a faint seam in the middle of the bullet. Make sure you clean that part well after use to make sure there is no residue.

There is also a rubbery ring that holds the power cord in place on the bullet and a ring around the "change rhythm" button on the controller. It is listed on the instruction sheet as an LED light though (it does light up), and does not make any part of this toy waterproof.

Neither the plastic nor the rubber have any odor or taste.
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The bullet is shaped like a normal bullet. It is smaller than a lot of other bullets and good for pinpoint stimulation.

The control is kind of like a genie bottle. It has a small top where the on/off button is located and then it flares out in a bulbous shape where a very large second button is located that changes the patterns of vibration.

The bullet is about 1.5" long and the control pack is a little over 4".

I had never had a bullet this small. Because it is so small, it is not great for broad stimulation and may be too intense for some. I laid it out with a few other bullets for a size comparison. It is the smallest by far (hot pink with hot pink cord).

The control is easy to use and really fits well in your hand.

The bullet and control, even together, are not huge, so it is not difficult to hide but it is rather peculiar looking. Not sure how you would explain it.

This would be okay for travel if you took the batteries out. If you separate the pieces, it is kind of hard to tell what it might be. The toy can turn on if either button is pressed though, so the batteries must come out.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations are located in the bullet on this toy. It connects to a control pack by a power cord that plugs into the control pack. The cord kind of looks like a headphone cord with jack.

It has two buttons: an on/off switch and one to toggle between the 10 settings. It can be turned on with either button but only turned off with the smaller power button. Very easy to use.

It is not waterproof in any way.

This is a very quiet toy. I love it. On most settings, it can hardly be heard.

It is powered by 2 AAA batteries, which are cheap and plentiful.

The 10 settings are as follows (per the box):

1) Vibrate (High)
2) Vibrate (Medium)
3) Vibrate (Low)
4) Gradient Burst
5) Intermittent
6) Surge
7) Inta-Surge
8) Even Step
9) Roller Coaster Spurt
10) Pulsate

I wish the steady vibrations went low-medium-high instead of high-medium-low because it's kind of odd to have it strong when you turn it on and it get weaker as you toggle through. Sometimes if I've been using the toy for a little while and I'm really sensitive, hitting that high vibration is a little bit too much. Not a big problem though!
    • Discreet sound
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function

Care and Maintenance

This toy is plastic and very easy to take care of. It can be washed with warm water and soap, cleaning cloths, or your favorite toy cleaner. It cannot be boiled or put in the dishwasher. It should not be submerged if washing with soap and water because it is not waterproof.

Make sure to get out any residue that has collected in the seam in the middle of the bullet!

It is compatible with all types of lubricant.

Follow-up commentary
This is a very pretty, vibrant pink bullet. I love that it is powerful, small enough for pinpoint stimulation, and has ten different settings. I was also impressed that it was almost silent-- easily one of the quietest bullets I have.

It can be easily turned on by accidentally pressing either button, not just the on/off button. My fingers also go numb after awhile, which is a problem I have with many bullets.

    Thanks for a fabulous review and some very helpful pics! You have A LOT of bullets — nice to hear this is good from someone who clearly knows what they're talking about. I like the way this thing looks, the size (which sometimes is just what we want) and that it performs so well. I hope it's available soon....

    This is so pretty! Lol. Sounds like a pretty nice bullet. Bullets really don't do much for me at all, but I'm tempted now. I too prefer an on/off switch aside from having to use the one to cycle through everything. Thanks for the great detail in this review. I had the same thought that Spiced did -- you have a lot of bullets! Lol.
