Review: IKEA PRYDLIG Gel Ink Pens - 5 Pack

I salivate for these inky gooey gel pens! Anika (@aisforanika) sent these sweeeet pens for me to test and tinker with. I had won the pink IKEA sketchbook from Anika's blog awhile back and I favor it greatly so it is a perfect match for these cutie gel pens!
Ikea Gel Pens
Aren't they pretty and bright?
Yes, they very much resemble Pilot G-2 pens.

I spy...Pilot G-2s.
The colors are fabulous - though the pen colors are a bit misleading. I am surprisingly taken with the orange and green. Usually I am all over the pink but the green has stolen my heart. Apple green.
Ikea Gel Pens
These are great to write with - easy flowing ink, and nice and smooth.

The ink is not waterproof, but writing on "normal" paper - i.e. not coated paper, it stays pretty well with just a brushing of water. On the bright side, the ink dries quickly, which means low smearing while writing!

Price
IKEA - $2.99 for five

Overall
If IKEA isn't too out of your way, pick up a pack. Or five. Perfect for writing, sketching, doodling, coloring, or even gifting! You can't go wrong with these. Don't miss the chance to stock up yo!!

They're quite enjoyable :) :) And really do perform well! Better than more expensive gel pens I have used too!

As I mentioned on twitter I think my favorite part of this post is that your sample writing for the green pen is "gorgeous apples". I'm not even sure why I find it so amusing; it's just so fitting! I agree that the pen colors are misleading. I was perhaps naively disappointed that the grey pen wasn't grey ink. Black ink makes more practical sense, but I was most excited about having a grey ball point pen! Oh well, there were too many good things about these pens for me to stay disappointed for long. :) Glad to know that you enjoy them as well!
