One Minute Reviews: Sharpie Pens in NEW COLORS
Sharpie Pens continue to both fascinate and frustrate me. When they’re good they’re great, but when they’re bad…well you know the rest of the story. Still, I did squee when I spied the new colors – okay, not the peach so much, but definitely the pink and the aqua.
I don’t have one of the other ones in grabbing distance, but based on feel alone, I already like this incarnation better than the previous. I’m nervous about the barrel material because I do not have a delicate touch and tend to grip my writing instruments like they’ve been bad. Still, the barrel did not snap in half as I wrote so maybe I shouldn’t freak out too much about it.
I scored mine on clearance at Wally World for $3.97, which is a good deal. Still, I would have paid more and stil felt I’d gotten value for my cashmoney. Sharpie Pens are a really innovative product at an accessible price point. Also, THEY HAVE NO SMELL. For fans of that Sharpie smell this might be a bummer, but for me (not a fan of that smell) this is really exciting.
The ink is pretty much like all the other Sharpie Pens, though I am a little bummed the aqua ink isn’t more vibrant. The pink is the real showstopper of the package; the other colors were just to meh for my tastes, but I’m sure someone squeed when they saw them so I’m not going clown those colors. And if you are one of those people who went squee over the green and the peach please comment and say so. You can have mine!
