Lipstick Flashlight



Perfect for your next Fleetwood Mac or Neil Young concert — no worries if you forget to bring a lighter or matches or it's raining out.

From the website:

    Locate items in closet, glove compartment, handbags and other dark spaces.

    Just pop off the cap and twist to emit bright LED light.

"Other dark spaces"... don't get me started.

I wonder how this device will fare at airport security checkpoints.

My guess?

Once the little button–cell batteries show up on the x-ray machine you'll be quickly and quietly escorted to a room with an unmarked door and a mirror on one wall.

At the very least you will miss your flight.

To paraphrase the old American Express ad: Do leave home without it.

$19.98 here (3 button–cell batteries included).

Pretty steep price for something that most likely costs about a nickel to manufacture in China.

But you know what?

Here at bookofjoe it's not about the money.

I know, I know — when they say that, it's always about the money.

Remember where you are.


Now straighten up and fly right.

It reminds me of the lipstick candles I saw on the Spoon Sisters site last night: http://www.spoonsisters.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=38705&Category_Code=1005000&Product_Count=6

And I think these would look cooler at a concert. But since a Billy Idol concert in the 80s was my last concert experience, what would I know? Maybe flashlights are de rigeur now, not lighters.
