Smiggle scented gel pens

Yesterday I wandered into a Smiggle store, not expecting to buy anything - honestly.

I pondered over the set of gel pens.  I bought a set a couple of years ago but was disappointed at the quality.  They skipped, the dried up quickly, and the colours were very pale on white.

As I was leaving I saw the woman at the counter using them so I asked straight up, 'Are these any good?'  We chatted for a bit about how they have now improved their quality, that they seemed a thicker barrel.  I was still umming and ahhing.

In the end I went back to the shop and bought the big pack, the woman even got out a pad of paper so I could test the set I picked up.  That's pretty awesome service I think.

So I have now tested them all and I'm happy to say that although some were a little scratchy they all worked well.  Only two didn't write straight away.

The pastel colours are very vibrant - seemingly neon.  

The glitter is fine, can be a little patchy but overal nice to look at. Silver in colour. I tried to photograph that for you here:

Now we will see how long they actually last.

You can buy these from as well as in store.
