The sonic lipstick was a sonic device similar to the sonic screwdriver owned by the Doctor, and regularly employed by Sarah Jane Smith. Unlike the Doctor's version, Sarah Jane's resembled a genuine 21st-century lipstick closely enough to avoid suspicion from casual observers.


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 though did not explain where she had acquired it. (TV: Enemy of the Bane) Although primarily used by Sarah Jane, it was also used by her companions as well as the Eleventh Doctor on occasion. (TV: Death of the Doctor, Revenge of the Slitheen, The Empty Planet)

Sarah Jane herself rarely wore actual lipstick, and almost used the sonic lipstick on herself instead of a normal one when preparing herself for a date with Peter Dalton; she remarked that she had to stop doing so. (TV: The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith)

Rani Chandra borrowed the lipstick whilst investigating unusual weather patterns. Whilst tied up she had Jac retrieve it from her pocket to release her. (AUDIO: The Turn of the Tides)


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)
