I purchased these highlighters...
April 27, 2016
I purchased these highlighters in December, and I lost the pink one so need to
get them again! They're great. The yellow is very light, so I generally only
use it when I'm playing around and want sparkles. The lavender is not as subtle
as the yellow, but it's very light and isn't "in your face" like many
highlighters are. The pink is a vibrant highlighter color that really stands out
on the page, and the green is strong without being too dark.
Now to the important part - the sparkles! The sparkles are subtle unless you
move the page in the light. When I sit at my desk and use the highlighters, I'm
not struck by the sparkles. However, if I pick the paper up or pass it to
another person, the sparkles become visible and really attract attention. I gave
a highlighted document to a coworker, and she giggled when she saw how sparkly
I'm known at the office for having bright colors and lots of different kinds of
office supplies that I bring in for my own use. I don't use these highlighters
on documents that go to the CEO, though. If you work in a very stuffy office,
these won't be good for you. If you're a student, these will be great.
ONE NOTE: I generally use these on laser-ink. They don't run, and they aren't
too wet for me. If I use a wet pen or a fountain pen and try to highlight it on
the same day, they will run. If text was put down a day or two ago, even with a
gel pen or a rollerball, it doesn't run for me. I think that there are
definitely going to be some pens that will run when you use this.
I am thinking of giving away the highlighters I have just so that I can buy a
new set right now. The pink was my favorite!
