Review: Couture Collection Calypso 2

I haven’t reviewed many bullets, which is kinda funny since that’s what I started with.  Today I’m going to review the Couture Collection Calypso 2 from PinkCherry.com.

The bullet and controller

The packing, per usual with California Exotic Novelties, is pretty basic and boring.  The front and back have a picture of the product and there’s details listed on the sides.  You can store the toy in here, but I plan on tossing the box and storing the bullet in a plastic baggie.

The Calypso 2 (by the way, I don’t know what the Calypso 1 is) is a corded bullet.  The bullet is about 3 1/2″ long and just under 1″ wide.  The cord is approximately 21″ long.  I do think the cord could be longer, but it should work well for most people.  The packaging boosts that it is waterproof, but it does not say if both parts are and I have not been brave enough to test it.  The cord does seem well sealed in to the bullet, but the plastic controller doesn’t seem water proof to me, only splash proof.

The bullet

The bullet itself is made from silicone and is a very pretty light/periwinkle blue.  I’ve tried another product from CAE’s Couture Collection which was silicone as well and it did not pass my flame test, so I decided to try this one as well.  The bullet unfortunately did discolor when I tried it under the flame.  I do feel that it is still silicone, just not a high quality silicone.  I would use only a water based lubricant with it.  The bullet also has a very unique shape to it which I like.  You can get a more pin point feel with the tip, or use the slightly curved side to sort of cup your clit.  The ridges along the tail also make it very easy to hold on to.

The controller

I love the controller.  It’s white with a very pretty shimmery blue design on it.  It also fits very nicely in your hand.  It’s also very light weight, but does not feel flimsy.  There are two buttons on the controller.  The first is a dedicated on/off switch.  I do like having a dedicated switch, especially if you have roommates or others who could catch you in the act.  The second button scrolls through the vibration patterns.  It has three levels of steady vibration and four patterns.  The vibrations themselves are about average and on the buzzy side.

The battery compartment

The Calypso 2 uses two AAA batteries.  The battery cover is a bit tricky to get back on.  It has a small little latch that you pull up to remove it and you really have to push on it to make sure it snaps back in place.  It’s hard to see, but around the metal contacts in the cover there is a small rubber ring.  This will help to make a water-tight seal, but I’m just not sure if I trust it.

Overall, I enjoy the Calypso 2, but it will probably not be strong enough for many women.  I love the unique shape of the bullet and the controller is very pretty; it’s probably one of the pretties toys I own that isn’t glass.  If you don’t require a ton of power, then I really think this bullet will be a great addition to your toy box.
