mac usb lipstick

So, I was surfing around Ebay for a USB flashdrive. Not that I need any considering I have 3 at home. Was just checking out if there are any nice ones out there.

Awesome shananay right ?
I browsed through Points & Places on Etsy & they have varieties of lipstick USB to choose from but wasn't ready to give up that dollar.

First things first, you need a set of pliers. 

Take your pliers and ply off the white tube that is in your lipstick casing. Patience needed. Some take quite a force to remove. Get an ugly looking USB stick & remove from casing. Most USB casings are clipped together on the edges so check around the grooves. A spring wire usually holds the front & back casing so expect that to fly out during removal. Make sure you hold on to it firmly, shifting it side to side with slow force helps. Once done, slot in your USB into the lipstick casing. Your USB should be long enough so it does not ''drown''into your lipstick tube.

Some lipstick casings vary in size. For example, I first tried using a Make Up Forever lipstick case & found that my Sony 16GB USB did not sit well. The diameter was a tad big. I suggest you standby 1-2 empties to try.

With a MAC lipstick, my USB slotted in perfectly with a slight grip that makes the USB stay in position & doesn't move about. Nothing needed for it to stay in place.


Enjoy having people coming up to you & being amazed with this one. I get that alot at printing shops. It looks darn cool too on the side of your laptop.
