Sonic lipstick
Type: Multi-functional sonic device
Used by: Sarah Jane Smith, Maria Jackson, Luke Smith, Clyde Langer, Rani Chandra, Eleventh Doctor
Appearances: see list

The sonic lipstick was a 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 Edit

Sarah Jane Smith had obtained the sonic lipstick by the time of 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 Doctor himself. (TV: Death of the Doctor, Revenge of the Slitheen, The Empty Planet)

Features Edit

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.

Uses Edit


Sarah Jane disabling a cloaking field on a sontaran ship. (TV: The Last Sontaran)

She also claimed to be able to block the frequency the Trickster was using to manifest himself, sending him back, but he claimed those were "empty words". (TV: The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith)

Sarah Jane disabling the machine the Slitheen built. (TV: The Gift)
