The sonic lipstick was a sonic device similar to the sonic screwdriver owned by the Doctor, and regularly employed by Sarah Jane Smith. It resembled a genuine 21st-century lipstick closely enough not to seem suspicious.

History

The sonic lipstick was given to Sarah Jane by the Doctor (PROSE: The Shining Man) at some point before the Bane's attempted invasion of Earth in 2008. (TV: Invasion of the Bane)

Following the destruction of one of the devices by Sontaran Commander Kaagh, Sarah Jane later produced another. (TV: Enemy of the Bane) Although primarily used by Sarah Jane, it was also used by her companions as well as the Eleventh Doctor. (TV: Death of the Doctor, Revenge of the Slitheen, The Empty Planet)

Features

The sonic lipstick looked like a normal lipstick on the outside. The lid came off and it twisted to reveal the emitter. When in use, the sonic lipstick generated a pinkish-red light, and produced several sounds. Like the Doctor's sonic screwdriver, it also remained ineffective against deadlock seals. The Slitheen described it as a sonic disruptor, (TV: Revenge of the Slitheen) and Sarah Jane once threatened to destroy a talisman with sonic disruption. (TV: Eye of the Gorgon) It ran on some sort of energy which could run out. (TV: Death of the Doctor) It was implied[by whom?] several times that the sonic lipstick could be harmful to humans and other living things. (TV: Warriors of Kudlak, The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith, The Curse of Clyde Langer) However, it was never used as an offensive weapon. [source needed]
