Juice up your notes with Pilot's Juice gel ink pens. The Juice series is a collection of brilliantly colorful pens, all of them containing pigment-based ink. Pigmented ink is water-resistant and fade-resistant, ensuring that your vivid colors stick around for a long time. The pens can write on most photographs, and the pastel and metallic colors are fun to try on dark papers. Attach your pen to your notebook using the sturdy spring-loaded clip. Or if you prefer, string a chain through the hole in the clip, then hang the pen from your bag or attach playful charms. (The chain in the photo is not included.)

I really wanted to like these pens, because there really is a lot to like about them. The selection of colors is amazing and the ink is vibrant. And considering the price, these are very cute, simple, no-fuss pens to tote around with you. The grip is suitable for extended writing sessions, and the fact that they're retractable makes them very handy in my opinion. However, they have one fatal flaw--the ink takes way too long to dry completely, which is disastrous for both note taking and lefties.

I spent a semester taking notes with 11 different colors of these pens, and no matter what I did the ink would always smudge really noticeably onto my hands as well as all over the backs of pages in my notebook. Even on days when my notebook was left sitting out for 40+ minutes to dry, the ink would still not be dry enough for safe storage. Spots where the pen had blobbed slightly onto the paper would still remain wet, which sadly happens more often than not with this pen.

If you can stand the smudge, these cute Juice pens offer a great variety of colors. But if you're like me and can't stand smeary pens, I'd look elsewhere before trying one of these.

Unlike the other reviewer, I found that the drink dries very quickly. I graded some papers and then drew a bit on some scrap paper to continue testing it out. I then put my bare arm on top of the paper I'd drawn on, and none of the ink got on my arm.

The flow of the ink is consistent. The color of the ink is a true violet - much darker than most pens labeled "purple." The grip is very comfortable.

The pen is not scratchy, exactly, but I think it is better suited to writing notes in a notebook than to grading papers or writing on just a sheet of paper on a desk. It has a quality related to scratchy that I don't quite have a word for - you can feel it pushing onto the desk - it doesn't have the cushiony feeling at the tip that I prefer for grading pens. I actually think that this pen would be great for ink drawing.

I love this shade of purple. It's more of a blue purple. As for quality, it's a great pen! I prefer 0.5 mm over the 0.7 mm. As the name says, these pens are juicy. I have to wait a few seconds for it dry, or blot my writing with a scrap piece of paper. The wait time for 0.7mm is longer.

I am a big fan of the pilot juice pens, especially after buying it in Turquoise Green. The ink quality is excellent, but I'm not too happy with the violet hue. It doesn't seem as natural or easy-looking as a standard violet pen. I would have liked it more if it was darker and toned down.
