The product that launched a thousand inappropriate jokes is taking the beauty world by storm. Penis lipsticks (AKA "lipdicks") are the hot new item that vloggers and makeup gurus everywhere can’t live without.
X-rated makeup products have finally made out of the bachelorette party and into the mainstream, courtesy of Amazon and YouTube. While there are several brands of penis lipsticks available, the most popular by far is the 12 lipstick set made by Pipedream Princessa USA. At a little over a $1 a tube, they’re cheap, and if the reviews are any indication, their coverage and range of colors are a hit with wearers around the world. The only problem? They don’t have actual names, just numbers to denote which shade is which – imagine all the possibilities!
If you love makeup, and you're looking for something a little more exciting to press your lips against, these lipdicks have got you (literally) covered.
They Smell Like Roses
Manny MUA is a brand ambassador for Maybelline. He reviewed four of the 12 Pipedream Princessa shades, and found each of them to be, "shockingly pigmented, and (they) smell like roses... beautiful... it feels really good on the lips. I’m impressed!"
They Provide Good Coverage
Buzzfeed had some of their staff – both men and women – try Pipedream Princessa lipdicks, with mostly positive results. One tester said, "One swipe, and it looks this bright? Really cool."
Another reviewer said she found the shape empowering, since women are often shamed for liking makeup.
They Look Surprisingly Realistic
Shane Dawson gave his audience what he says is "a lot of meme material" in his review of Pipedream Princessa lipdicks. After a few off-color jokes and over-the-top Kardashian references, Shane is sold:
"This looks good! This dick looks good! These f*cking work, that’s very scary. What happens if you use them over and over again?"
They Make For Easy Application
Vlogger Nate from PopLuxe tried penis-shaped lipsticks from Liphop. According to him, the, uh, unconventional shape makes for better application:
"This is actually really damn good, and as for the shape, it makes it easy to apply... the shade and pigmentation of this? Oh, it’s beautiful!"
