    Default New Ink Review: Diamine Shimmer 2016: Lilac Satin

    I'm posting reviews of all 12 new shimmer inks on here separately. I've heard today that release date for these inks is 4th November.

    Generally speaking, I found all 12 of these new shimmer inks to be wetter than all of the other shimmer inks I have used.

    Currently I only have samples that Diamine very kindly sent me to test, and to review 'if I wanted to', but my small bottles don't need much shaking to mix the particles in, and the pens need very little shaking once they are filled.

    I have had these inks in these pens for at least 2 weeks now. Every pen/ink combination has started straight away without a problem, and I have experienced no stopping or skipping.
    Some take longer to dry than others, and a couple just soaked into the paper straight away. The most saturated inks will show through and bleed through on cheap paper.
    None of them are waterproof inks.

    I assume they will come in the same type of bottles as the previous set of shimmer inks, but I haven't seen the retail bottles yet.

    Diamine Shimmer Lilac Satin is a subtle lilac ink. It's not a heavily saturated ink and comes with silver shimmer. The silver shimmer shows up really easily. I used my Pilot Custom 74 that has a M nib and I had no trouble seeing the silver effect. This ink feels quite wet, but dries reasonably quickly.

    The first picture is a scanned review form, and the second is a photo. These have been adjusted with Photoshop to get the colour you see to look as close as possible to the actual ink colour.

    You're tempting me here. Maybe I'll try it in my Nemosine.
