Pin-up Vibe and Bombshell Balm: Review and Giveaway

Babeland.com sent me this Pin-Up Vibe and Bombshell Balm for review. When it came in the mail I was excited about the artwork on the front of the tin. I've always had a thing for Boudoir Photography. As soon as I have the extra money I'm hoping to do that myself. So that's always what I think of when I see pin-up artwork.

I received the Nancy Tin which comes with a silver bullet vibe, the Bombshell Balm, and an extra N battery. I really like that it comes with an extra battery since N is a size that I'm not going to have on hand at home. There are three different collectible Pin-Up Tins, and the bullets come in Silver, Red, and Copper.

The bullet is a simple three setting bullet and the outer material is a hard plastic that has a hammered-like texture. The weight and buzzy noise of the vibe originally struck me as a novelty item. The vibrations are different though. On the lowest setting they are almost rumbly. Either way, this three-speed bullet is more than capable of getting the job done! On the highest level it is fairly strong. It is one of those vibes that is definitely louder if you turn it on just to look at it, that it is when you're actually using it pressed against your body. It really wasn't to loud though.

The only thing I didn't love was that the button on the bottom of the bullet that changes the speeds wasn't the easier to push, so I fumbled some trying to switch speeds.

The bullet is 'splash proof, but I don't suggest it for play in the tub. The Bombshell balm has a lip-balm like consistency. It has a cooling sensation and makes your lady parts all tingly. I am a fan of clit stimulating gels and balms. I don't, however, agree that they make orgasms more powerful per say. My experience was that I love the sensation and it can make me want sex more, it may even change the sensation of the toy enough to get me off faster, but it doesn't really change the power of the orgasm itself.
Overall I really liked it and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a simple bullet for their collection with a few fun extras!


One lucky person is going to win a collector's vibe and balm all for themselves, compliments of Babeland.com!

I have a really nice camera so my boudior shoots are just me and my tripod unless my best girlfriend comes to visit (she lives with me now incedently so I dont have to do photos myself) and she can help.

I love doing the shoots though. Im not a professional, but I love photography.

~*Jessica Rabbit*~ said...

I'm with Brandi, I've never had a professional photoshoot, I'd be interested but I'd have to be really comfortable with the person taking the photos, wich is a problem seeing as I'm not even all that comfortable with family taking regular "smile and say cheese" snap shots of me. lol.

I had bedroom shots done when I was in college and 18 with my best girlfriend in school. I actually posted one on my ahem adult site..

Nice! Love the Pin-up ;)

Yes, I've done a photo shoot wearing jeans and a red lace bra... and that's it. They were pretty good!

Never had a photoshoot, but not sure how comfortable it would be. The circumstances would really have to depend.

I have had a sexy photoshoot before. Two actually. One to take pictures for when I was doing some cam modeling. The second I had some pictures taken of all my lingerie for reviews etc.

I've never really done a sexy shoot. We would play around with what my friends and I thought were sexy modeling sessions in grade school and high school, but I don't think that really counts. :p

I don't have any interest in doing a sexy photo shoot at this point. I think I'm too insecure and shy. However, my man is a serious amateur photographer so he may eventually talk me into it.

I haven't ever had a sexy photo shoot. Part of me really wants to, but then a bigger part of me is too chicken and then another totally insecure part of me says I'm too old to do such a thing anyway. I may one day get up the nerve. I totally want to take some Burlesque dancing lessons, though. Unfortunately, they're always scheduled for when I'm working, grrr.

It was a long time ago now, but I did do a semi nude glamour shoot and it felt amazing. I'd love to do a vargas style one though (that was a favourite episode of antm when they did the vargas girs shoot)
