I just love these highlighters...
December 27, 2015
I just love these highlighters. So. Much. The glitter particles make them feel
like magic, which is why I've bought them twice: once for myself, and once for a
fellow pastel-loving, girly girl friend.
So why did I give them 4 stars instead of 5? The purple one tends to bleed
through even high-quality paper. (I use them in my Hobonichi planner, which
contains Tomoe River paper.) None of the other colors bleed, but as far as I'm
concerned, it's a 4-color set because the purple is unusable to me. There's also
the case of build quality: Zebra's Mildliners have a chisel-tip and a fine tip,
whereas the Kirarich are single-sided, chisel-tip only.
The final problem is maybe the least forgiveable: they smudge my gel pen ink
(Pilot Hi-Tec) even after the gel ink has ample time to dry. I remedy this by
highlighting first and writing on top of it, but this solution might not work
So, wow, that's kind of a lot of flaws. But I still love these markers, because
using them brings a smile to my face every time. And that's worth at least 4
